LoL! The desperation is all yours as YOU are the imbecile misrepesenting the book you are trying to review.
I didn't claim I was reviewing the book. I was quite specific about the fact that I was discussing the excerpt posted at EN&V.
Hey assface YOU said the book was something that it isn't.
What the fuck is your problem?
I guess all that stuff in the intro about the positive vision the ID perspective has for biology and evolution means nothing in terms of what the book is about...
No, the introduction pages that the book is about the "evidence for a Darwinian account of human origins".
But perhaps you can quote from it- a quote that supports your claim.
|Instead, they share a positive vision that much of biology would make better sense from the perspective of intelligent design rather than unguided Darwinian evolution.|
What an ignorant fuck- ONE sentence that doesn't even do what you said?
Just before your quote-mine:
|Although much of this book focusses on the shortcomings of Darwinian theory, the scientists represented here are not merely critics of the existing paradigm.|
Sure it does, you just don't want to admit you can be wrong. I also notice you don't have anything to say regarding my actual critique of Luskin's excerpt, choosing instead to throw up a bunch of distractions and insults.
I can be wrong. In this case, however, YOU are wrong. Obvioulsy you are too afraid to admit that.
And I don't care abouut fossils as they amount to "I wouldn't have seen it if I didn't already believe it.", and they fit in nicely under Shermer's "patternicity".
I say biological theories need to explain the BIOLOGICAL data and evidence. And by doing that we will find the explanation for the fossils.
So you and Casey can go play with the fossils...
Church burning ebola boy
FTK: I Didn't answer your questions because it beats the hell out of me.
PaV: I suppose for me to be pried away from what I do to focus long and hard on that particular problem would take, quite honestly, hundreds of thousands of dollars to begin to pique my interest.
