First of all it is Dr. not Mr. Johnson if you don't mind. I've been setting bones for over 40 years now and I have a grown son doing the same thing.
Davison seems to claim that chromosome rearrangements caused all of evolution one way or another. He seems to feel that ordinary mutations have nothing to do with evolution. Actually I think he said somewhere that all they do is cause extinction. That is pretty far out I must admit but what do I know? You guys are the experts. What I can't seem to get through my head is why nobody even recognizes this man. Oh another thing that is really interesting. Davison claims he doesn't exist. I'm not kidding. He says it all the time.
I read his Manifesto a couple of years ago and he dedicated it to a bunch of people, Bateson, Grasse, Berg etc, etc. Now he keeps saying that they don't exist either. I think what he means is that the Darwinians, you guys I suppose, don't recognize him or his friends who all seem to be dead. I can't figure it out myself but I have noticed one thing. He seems to be the only one that ever mentions these people. How come is what I want to know.
He also keeps harping about how he holds some kind of record for having been banned from more forums than anyone else excpt DaveScot and this fellow Scott L. Page, whoever that is. What is really wierd is that he is really proud of having been thrown out of so many different blogs and forums. If you take a look at his blog he even mentions that and uses it as an excuse to have his own place to make comments.
As I see it his main problem is his attitude. He is really a curmudgeon, dumping on just about everybody except his heroes. He reminds me a little of Richard Dawkins. He dumps on everybody else too. That is why I think a debate between these two oddballs would be a sensation. Is there anybody there at your forum that could contact Dawkins to try to set it up? There probably both full of it if the truth were known. A rip roaring back and forth could be very interesting don't you think? I guess Davison would take on just about anybody judging from the way he keeps quoting George S. Patton. You know - War, God help me, I love it so! Whatever else he is, he's no coward that's for sure.
He reminds me a lot of the knight in Monty Python except he has one heck of a lot of pretty solid information that seems to support a lot of his wild claims. Anyhow its great fun to read his blog although it sure has slowed up lately.
I sure hope you don't delete dump as I don't mean it the way it sounds.
