If he can get away with this, he can get away with doing a big turd on Dembski's desk. All he'd have to do is apologise. Someone else even gets to "clear up" the mess.

I think you may be right... I apologize!  

For some reason, I forgot about Denyse, but she is the forgotten, wronged "woman" (allegedly) in all this.

Ha!

Are we having the same conversation twice? :)

Is DaveScot really some sort of evil genius? Or is he just more evil and more of a Genius than WmAD?

I should probably apologize to the good doctor for distracting him from his important work overthrowing Darwinism, polishing up his Nobel acceptance speech, and picking up his laundry...

A rare fully intact specimen of a UD thread that succumbed to hidden obliviation. This and several similar threads are thought to have blundered into the Le Brea Tard Pits from which there was no escape. As can be seen below, struggle only hastened it's demise. (HT: oldman)

Well, we have a Post of the Week.  We don't really concern ourselves much with the actual time frame, though.

A nomination is usually sufficient if I see it.

So RB, this one's on Jack.

DaveScot and GilDodgen,

Like most guys who know a lot about computing, you know precious little about statistical inference. A downward spike in the latest sample of a time series that has shown a long-term upward trend is no basis for saying that you are "proven right." This is not to say that you are not right -- it's just to say that it's foolish to trumpet on the basis of so little information. It's obvious that neither of you has ever worked in prediction of nonlinear, nonstationary time series.

I genuinely do not know what to believe about anthropogenic global warming. But I do know that there is so much scientific uncertainty in the matter that any layperson who claims to have resolved it absolutely is pure bluster. And I know also that there are hugely different costs associated with different errors in inference. If CO2 emissions are in fact causing global warming, and we do nothing about them, then the cost of the error is astounding. If the emissions are not responsible for global warming, and we reduce them needlessly, the cost of the error is relatively low. Given the present scientific uncertainty, and the possibility that severe cost is associated with allowing CO2 emissions to rise, a prudent course would be to look for approaches to reducing emissions that are a) relatively high in efficacy and b) relatively low in impact on the economy.

Nothing forces us to do everything possible to reduce CO2 emissions or to ignore them totally. Only simpletons and blow-hards insist on giving all-or-nothing responses to ambiguous scientific information.


A funny aspect of my head-butting with Dave is that he doesn't know, and seems incapable of discerning, that my IQ is identical to his. Of course, I have four degrees that he does not, and a bunch of teaching, research, reviewing, etc., to boot. And unlike him, I can allow that some of you outclass me.

It happens that I once published results in prediction of annual sunspots numbers (a classical problem in statistics) that improved greatly on all in the literature. When I tell Dave he's an IDiot to claim "proof" that global temperatures are not rising when temperatures dip sharply for a year, he really should listen. But I think we all agree that Davie's wee-wee would have shriveled and fallen off if he had left my comment on the blog.

Cloud of Unknowing.

I've been expelled many times, but deleted only once before. That was after I challenged the Gish-galloping Gordon E. Mullings, by name, to a $25,000 wager regarding "free lunch" in optimization. (I'd have actually gone through with the bet, were he fool enough to take it, but I intended simply to jerk his chain.) He signed his comments "GEM of TKI" and linked to web pages giving his name, so I didn't think he had left himself privacy I could infringe upon. But DaveTard decided otherwise. I suppose homely cusses like Mr. Springer (barefoot and pregnant) and Msr. Mullings (3rd and 5th thumbnails) have to stick together.

I love it when the Czar gives me the boot and leaves his "rationale" on the blog. Perhaps he's finally caught on to the fact that I've been playing him against himself. He is, of course, his own worst enemy. But I suspect he's conscious that evidence of UD's hypocrisy is a bad thing when "Expelled" is about to be released.

Turncoat, here is cheers to you!


I've often admired your work, glad to meet you my friend.

Why I have wondered is that seminal douche Kairosfocus not here anymore.  Perhaps you have answered the question.  I have suffered that fool, gladly, several occasions (so have Hermagoras and others).  Fight the power!!!!

I don't hang diagnoses on everyone at UD, but KF gives strong signs of bipolar disorder (and Gil Dodgen has essentially tagged himself as the narcissistic son of a narcissistic father). I predicted that he would swing into depression and disappear for a while, and I was right about that. We'll have to wait and see if he returns galloping.

I think there's some justification for getting the UDers to parade their... issues. But I don't want to be out-and-out cruel to Mullings. David Scott Springer is a different matter. The IDists think evolutionary theory has caused people to disavow moral responsibility for their actions. Well, I hold DaveScot morally responsible for his polymorphously unconscionable behavior.

Having worked on a psychiatric ward, I know just how pernicious mania is. If I'm right about Mullings, I sincerely hope he takes the psychotropics Denyse O'Leary says no ensouled body needs and gets better.

I am surprised that you might think that Kairosfocus is somehow not all there.  I mean, not really, because ID requires some fundamental level of disconnect, but on the other hand this cat has all sorts of posted tard at the always linked discussion.  And that kind of shit is hard to argue about, clearly it is the product of a warped but focused mind.  

Don't get me wrong, he is one of my favorite all time tards because of the swallowing of the baby-puke colored pill, but at the very least his highly systematic and seemingly ennumerated scheme for epistemology indicated that he was more than your average turettes syndrome basketcase pubic hair filer.

I really can't remember most of them. I used to be Semiotic 007. Some time before that, I went by my own name, and Our YEC Savior went to some length to make sure THE WORLD (he clearly believed that THE WORLD was reading UD) did not mistake me for the creationist by the same name. The funny thing is that the notion of creation is central to my belief system, but I have absolutely no use for the -ism. Gil Dodgen opened a thread addressing me directly when I pointed out that he had made absolutely moronic comments about simulation. And DaveScot also opened a thread addressing me directly -- if I recall correctly, he was responding to my observation that lay "science skeptics" are sorry substitutes for practicing researchers with PhD's. (I've actually insisted this in 4-5 incarnations now. It's a sure-fire way of getting the IDiots to demonstrate their circle jerk.)

You'll know me when I post again at UD. ;)

When someone with bipolar I disorder is on the upswing, but not yet in a psychotic state, he is "all there," and may be highly focused, sleeping little and working long hours on something that seems tremendously important at the time. I don't think the Kairosfocus who responded to Semiotic 007 at UD was in as good shape as the Mullings who wrote the documents on the web. Manics are big-time systematizers. They are often grandiose. They may speak rapidly and tangentially. Sound familiar?

ID requires some fundamental level of disconnect? The vast majority of IDists are "liars for God." They're creationists trying to circumvent federal law by obfuscating their theory that intelligence creates complex specified information. Beyond that, the notion of winning back science for Jesus, closely akin to the notion of winning back America for Jesus, is friggin' looney-tunes.

I wasn't expelled. I was willing to stand up for Marks and his right to push evolutionary informatics and notions like active information. But when the names "Dodgen" and "Sewell" turned up next to mine, I was appalled. And I excused myself politely. Bob Marks is a decent guy, as best I can tell.

About thirty years ago, I was expelled from, and subsequently readmitted to, a Baptist college. My sin was to agitate for equality of women and men in education. My salvation was the many students and faculty members who spoke out on my behalf. Last year, I felt it was my turn to speak out for someone. I interacted behind the scenes, obviously to no avail, with regents and the executive vice president and provost of Baylor.

Fun facts to know and tell: I exchanged notes with a regent on the 51st anniversary of my birth in Waco. The site of my first home is now part of the Baylor campus.

Another important aspect of the story is that when I signed on with the EvoInfo Lab, I thought I had some solid "free lunch" results for optimization forthcoming. Bob Marks agreed up front not to censor my work, so my plan was to post at his site a research paper contradicting much of what he and Dembski have to say.

As things stand, I do have some "free lunch" results, but I consider them somewhat trivial. I'm giving that line of research a rest at the moment, and will return to it after revisiting some work in evolution of time series predictors.

All in all, the experience with the EvoInfo lab was embarrassing for me. But I feel I did what was right for me to do.

No, I did not wind my way into the Heart of Darkness.

Dembski suggested that Semiotic 007 (what a big secret my real identity was!) contact Marks. I did. Marks reviewed my web site, complimented me on some of my poems, asked for comments on his and Dembski's papers, and linked me into the EvoInfo web site. I never commented on the papers. Eventually I asked Marks to remove me from the site. Marks agreed, sent his best wishes, and completed the job the same day. That's the full extent of our interaction.

I have more email text from regents and the EVPP of Baylor than I do Marks and Dembski.

This is probably the ONLY time that Dembski's Nixplanatory Filter actually functioned correctly!

You should feel flattered!

ps:  Can you tell us all about some of the Secret Squirrel ID List Serve Stuff?

Is it true that the Secret Squirrel List Serve people have ALL the DaVinci Code, Bible Code and Zip Code Information for the entire USA?

added in edit:  I guess Dembski's Nixplanatory Filter is "working as per usual".

added in edit II:  Cross-posted - Missed it by this much! (3 minutes).  Of course that is better than getting caught cross-dressing!  Right Arden, Louis, Lou?

Holey moley.  I didn't quite follow all of this very well back when it happened.  Congrats!  By the way I thought I was being clever about being 'expelled' since there are two of y'all running around.  Figured that when you said the other one was a creationist that the other one was the one working with Marks.

Again, fine work.

It was your remark concerning sunspots that gave it away for me. I recalled you saying something about predicting sunspots with genetic algorithms on UD at the time, and I looked up your paper back then.

My writing style is distinctive, as is the combination of topics I comment on. It's never a secret who I am. The game is that as long as I don't say who I am and don't cross DaveScot, everyone pretends he doesn't know who I am.

Did you actually step foot into the lab? Did you see photos of the equipment? What kind of staff does the lab employ?
