Lewonton!!! With a twist.
In the Michael Egnor why only animals can talk thread, we're told:
|Leading Evolutionary Scientists Admit We Have No Evolutionary Explanation of Human Language – December 19, 2014|
Excerpt: Understanding the evolution of language requires evidence regarding origins and processes that led to change. In the last 40 years, there has been an explosion of research on this problem as well as a sense that considerable progress has been made. We argue instead that the richness of ideas is accompanied by a poverty of evidence, with essentially no explanation of how and why our linguistic computations and representations evolved.,,,
(Marc Hauser, Charles Yang, Robert Berwick, Ian Tattersall, Michael J. Ryan, Jeffrey Watumull, Noam Chomsky and Richard C. Lewontin, “The mystery of language evolution,” Frontiers in Psychology, Vol 5:401 (May 7, 2014).).
Immediately after that quote, we get this one:
|Casey Luskin added: “It’s difficult to imagine much stronger words from a more prestigious collection of experts.”|
And who's quoting this effusive praise of Kairosfocus' bete noir? None other than Bornagain77!
Boy, if Kairosfocus sees this, the KF - BA77 tiff will explode into an outright war! BA77 will be banned from Montserrat and KF will no longer be welcome in the basements of Minnesota. In other words, BA77 will win!
