I have long had admiration John Davison's feistiness (though not for his PEH) and it seems a shame that his avenues for discourse have gradually closed off. ISCID is all but defunct and the ashtrays are all full on his previous blogs. In support of John I would like to point out that he is a strong critic of climate change denialists, especially David Springer and his mentor, Bill Dembski.

So John has a new blog here and promises to try and be more civil to those who may want to visit.

I attempted to communicate with Ann after her most recent column. I hope she reads her comments section.

I don't even think she read her own book.

New crush? So why am I a "slut" but Ann is not?  :angry:
;)
:p

A JAD-Coult mashup could be quite fun. I hope she does read her comments section. :)

Can we get to post without having to log in?

That's fine John has his own blog. He can explain there his ideas for those who are interested. I hope the blog is not under the control of Alan Fox who established it for John. I think John will also disclose there all nonsense which are spreading from Pharyngula and other similar venues.

The last John's blog has been blocked up by some of his  adversary who sent there the whole "Origin of species".

What I am surprised is that Alan Fox has the password to John's new blog.

http://john.a.davison.free.fr/?p=4#comment-11

Personally (if possible) I would change the password immediately.

I am curious if there will be some participants of "knowledgeable evolutionists" from Pharyngula. You know their theories about color perception (green = white - red) etc... Also theories about natural selection and empy niches as driving forces of evolution is something I hope John will
respond there with his scathing criticism. We will see. The blog needs some time.

Well, John's new blog is off to a roaring start:

1. VMartin Said,
It’s nice you have your own blog John. I hope you can check all emails from those neodarwinian fanatics who
would like to block discussion here. Your Manifesto is one of the best available critics of neodarwinian thinking.
It continues in the best tradition of those men who claimed that natural selection play no role in
evolution. You mentioned Berg, Schindewolf, Broom, Grasse. I have already backed up such ideas by
thoughts of Franz Heikertinger, Adolf Portmann and Zdenek Neubauer
.
No one of mentioned prominent biologists believe natural selection play any role in evolution. The process is predetermined and has more to do with internal forces than with “environment”, “empty niches” etc. The final product is mankind and evolution is finished now.

I also hope that this blog is not under control of hypocrite Alan Fox who has started his whining and denigration at AtBC commeting your blog.



2. John A Davison Said,
Thank you Martin.

Actually, Alan Fox was kind to set this blog up for me. I doubt very much if he would do anything to jeopardize its future since he is responsible for its existence. He has the password and if he chooses to sabotage this blog, it is within his power to do so. I have thanked Alan for his help and will continue to be grateful unless events occur that will change my mind. If Alan now chooses to ridicule me at After The Bar Closes, there is a name for that condition. It is called hypocricy. That’s OK with me too!

Thanks for posting.



3. VMartin Said,
I wouldn’t believe Alan a word and change the password immidiately. But we will see.

I am curious if there will be some on-topic responses here about your Manifesto. The discussion could be
interesting. But you know very well that darwinists from Pharyngula and other venues have very limited knowledge.
Repeating their mantras about natural selection and empty niches they don’t know even themselves what
they are talking about.


"I have already backed up such ideas"??

Since when has Marty ever 'backed up an idea'??

Except for "the Darwinismus is bad", I don't recall VM ever having an idea.

Seriously, Marty, you two need to get a room. It's embarrassing to watch.  :O

I love it so!

Wake me if Ann Coulter shows up. :)

I hope she's not as strung-out as she appears to be on Newsnight.

Good lord, evil is seeping out of her every pore. She looks like a bulimic transvestite beginning heroin withdrawals.

She always looks like that, actually.

There's almost nothing to say about Coulter any more, ever since that one guy wrote that piece of erotic fan fiction about her.

Yeah, unless he's set it only allow posts from registered users.  Or you can also set wordpress to allow anonymous comments with word verification.

The old codger actually made some sense there for a second in what must be his first-ever "second post," on global climate change.
Then he went back to his ol' self in the comments.

Ah, Coulter vs. Paxo.  Good times, good times.

There was only ever going to be one winner in that contest.

OK. Alan seems to follow the rule of his French famous fellow-countyman Voltaire:
"I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it. "

I don't know if "to the death" is not exaggerated a bit, but who knows Alan.

I hope I am never in a situation that obliges me to answer that, though I have had to raise my voice at the dinner table occasionally.

PS unless you meant "who knows Alan?" rather than "who knows, Alan?" in which case it is not for me to reply.

I appreciate your aspiration for bel esprit. Your remarks are almost as witty as Stendhal's ironic remarks in his letters to friends. You are on the right track.

Have you ever heard about Paul Leautaud?

it could be my lack of education in biology and the short time i've been watching this discussion about evilution but why is john davison's prescribed evolution not questioned about who exactly prescribed said path?
or do i already know that answer?
and how does jd provide proof of said prescriber?

No, but since you like him, we know two things about him: he's probably dead, and probably had some idea no biologist in his right mind would accept today.

I just wanted to say that I think it was very nice of you to help John set up his blog.  It's looks very good, btw.  Maybe I'll have to have you help me with mine some day. ;)

And odds are no one's bothered to translate him into English and he never wrote anything after the 1930's.

I think JAD is the second closest to a scientist they have, after former scientist Mike Behe. Funny how DaveTard is flailing with JAD's frontloaded hypothesis over at UD at the moment. I love it when he 'considers' the specific...

DAJ and UD is a major case of a love/hate relationship.  He'll be nixed again presently.  Another betting pool?
