Since I can't go over and make fun of the stats at Young Cosmos's discussion board, because it's been broken for days, I have to go make fun of the International Society for Complexity, Information, and Design's discussion board:

Sal's fascination with private parts and surgery continues.

As FtK says in the comments there    
Quote
Totally something going on in the old noggin’ rather than the organ they’re wanting to do away with.

But since I am currently reading The Spatula Brain, which argues that the brain is not the mind, I have to wonder if Sal (or FtK) believes that transexualism is a product of the brain, or a product of the mind. Could the belief that you are actually a different sex be coming from outside the person? Since Denyse and her co-author advance the belief that your mind is evidence of a higher power, or an immortal soul, how can we tell the difference between that and a belief that you should be a different sex?

Along with those amoeba, we're obviously getting to ol' Sal:
Quote
I also did some research on the matter in light of the fact that the discussion forum tied to PandasThumb is moderated by Wesley Elsberry and a Darwinist Drag Queen, Imitation Lesbian by the name of Lou/JanieBelle [ see my link to Lou in This ID proponent is not a creationist in a cheap tuxedo.] Evolutionary Biologist John Roughgarden and the Darwinist DragQueen at Elsberry’s discussion forum strike me as remarkably similar to the mentally ill patients which McHugh describes...

The solution to the mental illness of the Darwinist DragQueens in Elsberry’s discussion forum is not surgery (as Evolutionary Biologist John Roughgarden resorted to), but fixing of the mind.

Some very weird shit follows. I'd been scratching my head over Sal's obsession with sex change operations, when it struck me: This thing...



...which is displayed over at Ftk's blog, is NOT a mole rat. It's Sal's wang chung, which upon recognizing just who it was attached to grew legs and a tail and left him. That's gotta hurt, and he's bitter about it.

Not good odds for betting, Rich.  It's pretty obvious, the way he's been obsessing about my penis.

I think it's to society's benefit that Sal remains a creationist - it's apparently the only thing holding him back from becoming a gay, horse-schtupping, music-hating, serial rapist in a cheap tuxedo.

Fifth floor? I thought there was just the three floors and then that grad student area above.

I don't hang out in bathrooms, but I do hang out in Hell. Was there tonight. My friend Mandy was bartending. Had a pitcher of Red Hook and a Checkvar somethingorother.

Skipping Sal's obsession with Lou's cock, his iteration of the "neutral theory" is amusing by itself. Someone else pointed out that he's wrong about everything, and Sal has said "nuh-uh".

 
Quote
     
Quote
“The theory does not deny the role of natural selection in determining the course of adaptive evolution” (Kimura, 1986)


On what theoretical basis did Kimura make that claim? Did he back the claim up with the same mathematics he did for neutral theory?


Yes. They've the same thing, actually. The "neutral theory" is a means of coming about genetic material for natural selection to act on. By working on the neutral theory, he was by default working on the mathematics of natural selection and adaptive evolution.

 
Quote
No.


Sal's version of reality must be a fun place. I suspect he gets there by not reading the things he critiques.

 
Quote
It was an obligatory salute to that pea-brain named Charles Darwin who couldn’t do high school algebra,


And Cordova can't understand university level math on genetics. I wonder why he's so obsessed with Darwin's algebra grades?

 
Quote
much less the differential equations which Kimura used to exorcise Darwinism from molecular evolution.


This is Earth. Calling Sal. Calling Sal. Come in Sal.

 
Quote
If Darwin could have done the math, Darwin might not have put forward his theory (that is presuming Darwin would have had the integrity, which is doubtful).


If he'd had gene sequencing technology, this might have mattered.

Lots of garbage unworth addressing, then:

 
Quote
Mr. Bad-Ideas presumed I didn’t understand the relevant literature. His bad, not mine.


Unsure he's shown his ability to quote the literature without understanding it enough, Sal goes on to say that

 
Quote
junk-DNA is not junk, so neutral thoery is wrong about that count, but it’s not wrong about the fact evolution must have proceeded principally through non-Darwinian means. I don’t have to buy into neutral theory in order to use its devastating critique of Darwinism.


There is no devastating critique of Darwinism in Kimura's work. Dawkins loves the hell out of the neutral theory, for one example. Thanks for making my point for me, Sal!

I'd like some of that action (the bet, that is...).

I think one of the reasons so many funnymentalists are obsessed with sex - and gay sex in particular - is because they are latent homosexuals and/or were moelsted by a male relative or relgious figure as children.

That or they are just depraved sex perverts like FtK.

Sal blabbering on about the Neutral Theory is like Sal blabbering on about,....  Anything else.

Pretentious, shallow, naive, condescending, WAY too overconfident, and, as always , plain wrong.

Sal's idea for a blockbuster movie, featuring the fluud and Walt Brown's hydroplates in action, got panned by Evil Bender. But Sal won't be dissuaded. He presses his case, and introduces a particularly novel abuse of the apostrophe.    
Quote
But consider the fact that Noah had 3 sons, they were married. That means that his sons and daughter-in-laws had relatives and friends that would die in the flood. Possibly likely the daughter’s-in-law had living parents and sisters and brothers before entering the ark.

Most movie renditions of the flood do not account for the trauma these women would have to endure. And what if the sons had friends and cousins and uncles that died in the flood, you get the picture. Drama in the making….

To say nothing of the incest, potential for bestiality, and all of the other things that make Sal salivate.

Box-office magic, no doubt about it!

The Bible practically insists upon accepting incest as a basic premise of being a good God-follower. You'd think Sal and FtK wouldn't have such a problem with it, since they love everything else that God does. For them, God causing the friends of Noah's family to drown should be just as acceptable as God forcing Noah's grandchildren and great-grandchildren to have sex with each other.

My idea of great movie? Hmm, one that features the great flood with all the drama an powerful explosions of Walter Brown’s hydroplate theory. I’ve been suggesting to playwrights, novelists, and and screen writers that a good drama with romance and adventure in the backdrop of the great flood would be totally awesome. They should avoid the moralizing and preaching that is typically the temptation with religious movies. Instead make one that has a great drama. It will capture the imagination and inspire the quest to uncover the mysteries of the great flood. The great flood is an important component of the Young Cosmos hypothesis.

I just had one hell of an idea for a $$ maker - fundie romance films. *Cue music*

Shem: I love her, and I'm going to take her with us!
Noah: I won't have that slut on my ark!
Ham: Well, I'm not sharing that ark with a couple of monkeys, I can tell you that right now.
Japheth: Father, can't you just disassemble that thing and use it for firewood? It's embarrassing.
Shem: It's her or it's Fluffy!
Noah: I have news for you. We slaughtered Fluffy today in praise of the dark clouds looming in the west.
Japheth: Yeah, well they cleared off, Dad. Sun's out. Looks like no rain for today.
Shem: I don't care! I'm bringing her with us!
Japheth: Your girlfriend, or Fluffy?
Ham: Could someone pass me the salt? Is that too much to ask?

Four men...five women...dozens of animals...and one ark. NOAH. The motion picture. Hell, this is my movie. I'm the only one who has the right to make it! How do you think belly dancing survived if it wasn't carried on the ark? :p
