as usual, you're way late on the uptake there, bobbo.

btw, I'll take Avalos' "corn pone" over your witless wonders any day.

also, he is certainly not a "nemesis" of Gonzales, in that he readily admits to having absolutely no bearing on Gonzales' tenure issue.

or didn't you actually bother to even read his statement, lackwit?

man, you are SUCH a waste of good air.

Icky, if you would kindly remove your head from your nethers you might note that Avalos shadowed Gonzalez during his speaking engagements, which evinces his fixation with Dr. Gonzalez.

You should look up "erstwhile" and find out what it means.

As far as I know, Avalos' shadowing and attempts to incite the faculty against Gonzalez were in the past.

A predictable response.  So Avalos is not a current "nemesis" of GG.  So wtf is your point here?

By the way, I recently forwarded this to Avalos:

Quote
Dr. Gonzalez:

I am sorry that you have been denied tenure thus far at Iowa State; you
deserve better. Clearly, quality of scholarship is not the issue, since
the university is willing to grant tenure to Avalos and Allen (Duae
tabulae rasae in quibus nihil scriptum est) but denies it to you.

In any event, you have my best wishes. Tu ne cede malis, sed contra
audentior ito.

Sincerely,

Robert O'Brien


And, of course, I previously sent him this:

Quote
Avalos: I have to laugh at the claim you are a Biblical scholar. I am very well read in the field, and I have you to encounter your name. As an undergraduate I took Attic Greek from a favorite prof of mine who studied under Gregory Nagy and James Kugel at Harvard; even with those "once removed" credentials I would not hesitate to take you on.

What do you think? Even though his harrying of Gonzalez may have tapered off, I still think Avalos is a toad and an unspectacular academic. (Sort of like another Midwestern professor who shall remain nameless.)

why do you insist on flaunting your lack of knowledge on a continual basis, bobbo?

Dr. Gonzalez:


so you uh, forward a message to Dr. Gonzalez to Avalos...

very impressive bobbo!

you uh, do realize everyone here just laughs at you, right?

just to be clear, that's AT you, not with you.

fool.

BWAHAHAHAAHAHA!  If he even knew who the hell you were, or cared, I'm sure he would have gotten quite a laugh out of that.

that you are knowlegeable and read in ANYTHING would come as quite a surprise, given that you haven't ever posted anything substantive on any subject.

don't you mean NOT harrying GG?

speaking of harrying...

why is it you post here again, bobbo?

still trying to figure out if there is a reason beyond your stalking behavior.

well, it does explain your crticism of Avalo...

pure, unadulterated, projection.

do we have a stalker clause here at ATBC?

hey, cut the plural there.

nobody is challenging Avalos' cred here but the witless wonder.

...and if you want bobbo to make a substantive challenge to Avalo's credentials, or heck, anything for that matter, I'd advise you not to hold your breath.

Actually that is for Robert to join the persecution complex folks.

What's there to address? I am not impressed by his degrees (Are you impressed with the degrees of the Apostle of Moon?) or by the publications he has listed:

like asking a bear not to shit in the woods?

naw...

oops, now you've gone and done it bobbo.

I gotta see the response letter you implicitly claim to have received from Avalo.

really, at least that would be something.

*sigh*

most likely you just fantasized he responded to your idiocy.

which of course, makes me wonder why, other than sheer boredom, I'm even bothering to respond to your idiocy.

put up or shut up, bobbo.

Care to address his credentials now? Exactly how do they make him a professor of "corn pone"?

only to laugh at you.

However, good point.  I'm completely bored at this point, and  watching the same lame pun get played out over and over again by you has become more than tiresome.  This comedy routine of yours should have gotten the hook long ago, just like on Pharyngula.

put up or shut up has been resolved.

shut up, Bob.

Brilliant. I suggest you run off now like Ichthych says. You're only digging deeper. If you can't back up your childish accusations against a man who more than likely doesn’t even read this forumn, then I think it's time for you to take your place alongside the other cowards.

But I suspect you'll be back making an ass out of yourself soon enough.

What more is there to say? I reject Avalos' assertion that his B.A. in anthropology qualifies him as a scientist and I think his work in religious studies is pedestrian at best.

What's there to address? I am not impressed by his degrees (Are you impressed with the degrees of the Apostle of Moon?) or by the publications he has listed:

Quote
Selected Publications
This Abled Body: Rethinking Disabilities in Biblical Studies, co-edited with Sarah Melcher and Jeremy Schipper (Atlanta: Society of Biblical Literature, In press)

The End of Biblical Studies (Amherst, NY: Prometheus Books, In Press)

Strangers in Our Own Land: Religion in U.S. Latina/o Literature, (Nashville: Abingdon, 2005).

Fighting Words: The Origins of Religious Violence, (Amherst, NY: Prometheus, 2005)

Introduction to the U.S. Latina and Latino Religious Experience, (Editor; Boston: Brill, 2004).

Se puede saber si Dios existe? [Can One Know if God Exists?]. (Amherst, NY: Prometheus Press, 2003).

Illness and Health Care in the Ancient Near East: The Role of the Temple in Greece, Mesopotamia, and Israel (Harvard Semitic Monographs 54: Atlanta: Scholars Press, 1995).

Bob, may I call you bob? I had to catch up on this a bit but wow. Do you engage strangers in coffeeshops in political or religious arguments?

Do you have any friends? Seriously.

hey, it's GoP's birthday today.

like bobbo, I think we were his closest "friends".

wherever he is, I hope he makes a wish, blows out some candles, and pins a tail on himself or something.

unlike bobbo, at least he often had more than single lines of commentary, such as they were.

nuff said.

I'm really out of this thread now.

Damn. It looks like everyone left. I was just hoping to play, too.

Anyway, Robert O'Brien: I'm afraid we've not met. Would you mind terribly mind sketching out a quick bio for me? Something touching on degrees, teaching, publications, work experience, and so on.

Thanks!

Might I suggest we all do a "Paley" on Bobbie and just ignore the tapeworm?  He, too craves shit.  Let him go find it somewhere else.

Icthyic,

Oh come on Bobby is right about one thing: credentials alone are not impressive. There are enough people here with credentials (and even more people with wit and intellect!) to realise how shallow credentials can be. They can be a useful marker, but they aren't the be all and end all.

What one should be judged upon is the the quality of one's arguments, the evidence marshalled in their favour and the accuracy of one's science (or whatever field one is in). So this Avalos fellow seems to be doing really rather well.

Compare and contrast this with Bobby's "arguments". Oh dear Bobby. You look a bit foolish and unsubstantial based on your "arguments", as indeed does your precious religion of ID. Ooopsie.

I expect your usual one line, content free piece of anti-intellectual drivel by return of post, Bobby. Please include some Latin. Dance you arrogant little comedy monkey, dance.

Louis

Bye.

And yet you keep engaging me.

Sorry kids, but as your kindly old lecherous uncle, I recommend breaking off the engagement immediately!
You two just don't seem right for each other... irreconcilable differences, I believe.  One of you is well within the range of normal, and one of you (Bob) is lost in their own little ID world.

Who gets the diamond back?
