Over at uncommon dissent user ftrp11 and aldo30127  continues to be one of about 3 voices of reason.  In this thread he/they clearly calls bullshat on the article posted, well he criticizes how the article is presented (as evidence for the demise of evolution theory)  and he offers some good lessons (for anyone) on scientific theory.  

I am amazed Dembscot has not warned or booted them yet.  And be sure to look where  Dembscot replaces the word Marxism with Darwinism to prove Popper was opposed to Darwinism.  Dembscott doesn't realize you could replace Marxism with Intelligent Design Creationism and get the identical result.  I wonder if anyone is going to point that out to him.

Further indications that neo-Darwinism is dead

Let's hope ftrp11 or aldo30127 don't get booted anytime soon, I enjoy reading their comments.

Ahh it looks like Dembscot has had enough of one of the voices of reason:

I am not sure how many times I have heard critiques of Popper and the notion of falsification being a criterion of science here (in defense of ID) but enough that I am sure you are aware of them. At any rate bold statements like “Darwinian evolution is the biggest hoax in the history of biology” are hard to back up when only a statistically insignificant people in relevant fields hold such a view. That doesn’t mean that the statement is wrong, just that it is hard to say with such certainty.

I have read Dembski, Behe, and Gould as well and I am not sure how anyone can be justifiably dogmatic at either end of this question. The dogmatists at both ends give disproportionate weight to some evidence and unduly discount other peices of evidence.

ftrp

The hoax hyperbole was meant to be rhetorical.

Try to focus on what Popper said about the addition to ad hoc hypotheses to theories that began their life as authentically scientific.

If you dare. If you don’t dare then I’m going to invite you to leave the premises.

It's about time he started threatening ftrp11. That guy is not marching in lockstep.
