Yes indeed, how much DOES Jerry Coyne know about biology?

Their crazy long URLs break the links sometimes, right?  I think that's what happened ...
Wandered over there and had a read of the Jerry Coyne/abortion farrago.  Torley is a forced-birther female-enslaving fetus-worshipper; who could have guessed?

Along the way Torley the corporate-asslicker also manages to find fault with Bishop Sanchez's strongly-worded statement that predatory capitalism (viz America) allows the "wealthy [to] arrange to get all kinds of subsidies, while the working class and the poor struggle to survive"

Who could argue with that?  Torley, that's who  Fuck him.

Robert Byers has this to say at UD concerning a "creationist movie":
 
Quote
The directer here is Jewish and this Jewish presence stands in the way of a movie industry that balances the nations beliefs.

It has been sitting there for three days and nobody at the site has criticised him for it.

Aside from writing amazingly terrible sentences, Gary's boring so I was trying to think of who from UD we could invite to their own thread here. Not sure, but not Byers. He's just too dumb.

New's reading skills:

In her article Retract that, sir, or face the consequences! Er, maybe., Denyse shows again her attention to details. She writes: "Top ten retractions of 2010, courtesy The Scientist..." While the first number mentioned in the article is indeed 2010, the year about which "The Scientist" is writing is 2013 (much more topical). That's why the journal used the title "Top 10 Retractions of 2013".

I mentioned that in a comment over there which died in the moderation queue....

A-E could also be telephone numbers (by taking the last few digits of several numbers)

E looks like it could be the famous Fibonacci sequence formed by adding the previous two numbers to get a new one:

1 + 1 = 3
1 + 3 = 5
..
55 + 89 = 146
etc.

I am not a number theorist either, but AFAIK, the general problem remains unsolved.  See here: http://tinyurl.com/9oa3kjw....9oa3kjw

Only the first string of digits that KF posted occurs in the first 200 million digits of pi according to http://www.angio.net/pi....p....i....pi

The intelligent design creationists work hard, albeit ineffectually, to hide their fundamentalist dogma behind a facade of "science".  One would think they'd realize the importance of concealing their misogyny, too.

Cantor is correct.  Pi gives an infinite stream of digits with no repeating pattern.  Any finite string of digits will be found in Pi an infinite number of times.  Of course, the longer your search string the more digits if Pi you have to calculate to find it.

I'm afraid that it isn't proven yet that pi is a normal number (though most mathematicians would bet that it is one...) At the moment we cannot say that each finite number can be found in the decimal representation of pi - but every short string of numbers (birthdates, etc.) has been found :-)

Trivially, all are pi-digits. Maybe not consecutive pi-digits. If he wanted to know which of the sequences corresponded to a range of consecutive digits found in the decimal representation of pi, I'm sure KF would have asked for that :)

I'm not sure that full normality is required.  Only base 10 needs to be looked at, and even then, equal proportions of each digit are not required.  If, for example, '1' occurred at twice the frequency of any other digit, then all the specified strings would still appear somewhere in Pi.  You might just have to search further to find them.

Since you mention Kairosfocus:
In 2013 Jerry Coyne enjoyed 8 views from  Vatican City but
only a single one from Montserrat.
Still, we've seen a 2000+ word posts on Coyne at UD and Kairosfocus from our montserratian friend.
