What it says.  Keep in mind creationists claim that by following “creation science” one would be following the path of morality.  How then do they justify divinely ordered slaughter?

Something interesting from a real Professor

The true story of the Archaean genetic expansion : Pharyngula.

An interesting post.  And it contains an account of the almost obligatory creationist mis-representations.

Delusions of importance

It would appear that Terry Trainor and Associate Professor Davison just cannot leave enough alone.  Now they’ve decided to comment here.  Davison still harping about anonymity and Trainor accusing me of running away after he supposedly posted “evidence” of a previous identity.

First things first… Davison must apologise  to PZ Myers.  Associate Professor Davison claimed that he could not find peer reviewed papers authored by Professor Myers, mainly because he did absolutly no research and came up with zip.  It has now been shown that Professor Myers had indeed published, with more papers published than one Associate Professor Davison.  Once he apologises, then we can move on. 

Well, as much as Associate Professor Davison is capable of moving on…

Secondly…Terry Trainor’s delusions of adequacy.  He’s trying to claim that I “ran away” when he “posted evidence” that I used another identity on his board.  Unfortunately, he too is someone who does no research.  What he claims as “running away” is merely a posting style.  Indeed, in the thread that started all this I once disappeared for over a year.  And anyone following this blog can see that there is little consistency to my posting habits.

I’m sure Terry Trainor believes he has something.  He may even be correct, for all I know.  However, since he has proved himself to be untrustworthy in anything resembling a debate (witness his blatent goalpost moving when I showed proof of Professor Myers publications, screenshots available in previous posts in this blog) he will be allowed to wallow in his cesspool unmolested.

He will, of course, claim victory.  I may as well let him have that.  Someone so lacking in honesty and honour needs something…

The Ass-ociate Professor speaks

Posted in Amusements, Venomous mammals on April 20, 2011 by solenadon

Associate Professor John A. Davison chose to post a comment to my humble blog, and it amply demonstrates why I cannot take him seriously.

Since you refuse to identify yourself, please don’t expect me to honor you with a reply to your mindless drivel. I am always happy to engage a named opponent. The ones whose Identity I know refuse to deal with me and my sources because they are terrified of us. That includes Paul Zachary Myers, Clinton Richard Dawkins and Wesley Royce Elsberry, Darwinian zealots all. You don’t matter at all because you are a coward who can’t even sign his words with his given name.

Got that! Write that down

Associate Professor Davison looks for any exuse to avoid a civil discussion.  Here he fastens on my supposed refusal to identify myself.   It amazes me that he even bothers to be online, what with people using pseudonyms left, right and centre.  There is nothing wrong with it.  But Davison looks for any excuse to avoid confontation.  This coming from a man who inflates his university degreees in an attempt to give himself authority he doesn’t deserve.

Oh, and by the way Associate Professor Davison those people you mention are not afraid of you.  You’re to pathetic to be afraid of.  They don’t want to have any discussion with you because you refuse to have said discussion without reverting to insults, evasions and general abuse.

As for cowardice…Associate Professor Davison is known to ban people from his blogs when their questions are too much for him to handle.  He also hides out on a creationist message board whose administrator is more than happy to ban people who ask probing questions and who do not accept BS answers.  Cowardice is Associate Professor Davison’s middle name.
