|BIO-Complexity demonstrates its commitment to critical exchange in other ways as well. For every peer-reviewed article it publishes, it seeks a well-informed Critique of that article. And for each of these it seeks a Response from the original authors. Unlike the original articles they comment on, Critiques and Responses won’t be peer reviewed. The reason for this is that we want to give people appropriate freedom to state informed opinions boldly, without the level of caution that peer review tends to enforce. And on the subject of peer review, the policy of BIO-Complexity is to seek evaluation from experts who fall on both sides of the ID controversy.|
Yada Yada Yada.
10 June. Zero well-informed critiques.
|Finally, you can have your say as well, because everyone who agrees to abide by three common-sense rules can post comments on anything and everything that BIO-Complexity publishes . |
I can have my say? Ok, great. Let's find out what we are dealing with.
The nice folk at http://foundationcenter.org/findfunders/990finder/ are happy to provide their Form 990 "Organization Exempt From Income Tax" from 2006 to 2008 (sort of). Query: "biologic institute".
So what's their primary purpose? In 2006/7 their form said:
Ok. And how were they doing that? Need some specialised equipment for that no doubt. Science stuff and all that.
Hey, well, a freezer! They need them, right! I've seen pictures of labs and they often have what look like freezers in the background! And a Mac.
I guess they must spend a lot on rent instead.
That's good. I mean, they then have plenty of cash left over to spend on research and all that.
Hmm. These forms are new to me but I can't seem to find any other major expenditures then
Oh. And the freezer was quite expensive! It must be a science freezer for sure!
And so, with their trusty Mac, freezer and photocopier they stride into 2007 steeling themselves for the fight and inevitable victory against Darwinism.
So, what progress in next year's form? Well, somebody gave them $725,100. They are still paying the same rent.
Well, doubters (I sense it), something did change! Something major.
Yep! Another Apple! Top notch model at the time by my reckoning. Course it'll be outdated now but that's the way it goes!
New research scientists joined the team that year. That'll be what they've been waiting for. To buy the equipment. To do the research.
A cool 50k. Nice. Guess what with the excitement of the new Mac and I guess the freezer may have been playing up that's why they forgot to file their tax form!
I wonder. Could this "third party" be him? it? The intelligent designer?
Nah. They'd need another Mac. We'll have to wait until 2009 is up to find out! But what did they achieve in 2008?
Woo! Nearly 4000 hits!
But it's like Mr Axe says
|Enough said. Go explore. I can’t think of anything bad to say about BIO-Complexity, so I’ll leave that to others. Let them have their say, and then come back to the question of what science is all about. If you’re a big fan of science, I think you’ll end up being a big fan of BIO-Complexity.|
Yeah, I'm a big fan! Oh and 2007/8 saw Axe get a rise, taking in $92,083. I guess it was those 4000 hits. Or, nearly 4000 rather. A 36 % increase? If his website gets a million hits he'll be rolling in it! Imagine!
And next year? 2008? 2009? I think it'll go
Freezer, Mac, Mac, Photocopier, Mac
And after that? Impossible to tell.......
I also mentioned that He'd have to give me a thorough explanation as to *why* I must "eat human babies".
if there are even critical flaws in Gauger’s work, the evo mat narrative cannot stand
