|Shithead Bully Arrington makes a BS claim about Dawkins and Coyne.|
Thaumaturge politely asks him or the other IDiots to substantiate it.
Shithead Bully Arrington can't stand to be questioned, readies the banhammer.

Thaumaturge, if all you are going to do is to continue to deny the undeniable – i.e., that people like Dawkins and Coyne insist that evolution is a fact! fact! fact! and only the details need to be filled in, you should move along. You bore me.
Calling that POS a pompous ass is an insult to pompous asses everywhere.
He banned me. Then, when he knew I could no longer reply, he went back and edited the comment you just quoted. It now includes this at the end:
|But you might want to read the article I refer to in my last post, where you will find the following reported:|
|Last fall . . . several of the world’s leading philosophers gathered with a group of cutting-edge scientists in the conference room of a charming inn in the Berkshires. . . .|
The biologist Richard Dawkins was there, author of The Blind Watchmaker, The Selfish Gene, and other bestselling books of popular science, and so was Daniel Dennett, a philosopher at Tufts and author of Consciousness Explained and Darwin’s Dangerous Idea: Evolution and the Meanings of Life. So were the authors of Why Evolution is True, The Really Hard Problem: Meaning in a Material World, Everything Must Go: Metaphysics Naturalized, and The Atheist’s Guide to Reality: Enjoying Life without Illusions . . .
They were unanimous in their solid certainty that materialism—as we’ll call it here, to limit the number of isms—is the all-purpose explanation for life as we know it.
Of course, even Barry's amended comment doesn't support his claim, which was that Dawkins and Coyne
|...believe the fundamental questions in biology have been settled and all that is left is to suss out the details. |
I'm sure he's hoping that no one will point that out, but I'll bet he's ready with the ban hammer in case they do.
Keiths adds his name to the list of those banned by Mr. Shithead Barry Arrogant.
