|Well, John's new blog is off to a roaring start:|
|1. VMartin Said,|
It’s nice you have your own blog John. I hope you can check all emails from those neodarwinian fanatics who
would like to block discussion here. Your Manifesto is one of the best available critics of neodarwinian thinking.
It continues in the best tradition of those men who claimed that natural selection play no role in
evolution. You mentioned Berg, Schindewolf, Broom, Grasse. I have already backed up such ideas by
thoughts of Franz Heikertinger, Adolf Portmann and Zdenek Neubauer.
No one of mentioned prominent biologists believe natural selection play any role in evolution. The process is predetermined and has more to do with internal forces than with “environment”, “empty niches” etc. The final product is mankind and evolution is finished now.
I also hope that this blog is not under control of hypocrite Alan Fox who has started his whining and denigration at AtBC commeting your blog.
2. John A Davison Said,
Thank you Martin.
Actually, Alan Fox was kind to set this blog up for me. I doubt very much if he would do anything to jeopardize its future since he is responsible for its existence. He has the password and if he chooses to sabotage this blog, it is within his power to do so. I have thanked Alan for his help and will continue to be grateful unless events occur that will change my mind. If Alan now chooses to ridicule me at After The Bar Closes, there is a name for that condition. It is called hypocricy. That’s OK with me too!
Thanks for posting.
3. VMartin Said,
I wouldn’t believe Alan a word and change the password immidiately. But we will see.
I am curious if there will be some on-topic responses here about your Manifesto. The discussion could be
interesting. But you know very well that darwinists from Pharyngula and other venues have very limited knowledge.
Repeating their mantras about natural selection and empty niches they don’t know even themselves what
they are talking about.
"I have already backed up such ideas"??
Since when has Marty ever 'backed up an idea'??
Except for "the Darwinismus is bad", I don't recall VM ever having an idea.
Seriously, Marty, you two need to get a room. It's embarrassing to watch.
I love it so!
Wake me if Ann Coulter shows up.
I hope she's not as strung-out as she appears to be on Newsnight.
Which came first: the shimmy, or the hip?
