Jonathan Wells admits that on matters scientific, he takes orders from Sun Myung Moon, who he believes is the return of jesus christ.

Father's words, my studies, and my prayers convinced me that I should devote my life to destroying Darwinism, just as many of my fellow Unificationists had already devoted their lives to destroying Marxism. When Father chose me (along with about a dozen other seminary graduates) to enter a Ph.D. program in 1978, I welcomed the opportunity to prepare myself for battle.


So presumably, like Moon, Wells doesn't believe in that foolishness about humans being descended from a chimp-like ancestor. He believes people are descended from polar bears.

You read that right. Moon believes that people came from polar bears. Or only white people came from polar bears. Or something. I'm not reading it again lest my brain have a stroke.

In your thinking, does it take time to cross America? Are there obstacles? [No.] What comes first, your mind or true love? With true love, you can go anywhere; there are no boundaries. With true love, everything is possible, even conquering the universe. Donít you want to do that? What if, for white people, the cost is your face turning black? Would you still want to do it? [Yes.] But no matter how you try, you cannot become black right away. You may have to die tens of millions of times first. If it takes this much effort, wouldnít you have to bow to a black person when you see him, if that color change is the goal of your eternal life? Do you think the black race emerged out of nowhere, or worked really hard to remain the black race? If it is true that the white race emerged from polar bears, and traveled hundreds of millions of years to travel to the tropics and turn black, donít you have to pay respect to the hard work and effort those ancestors made?

someone should have told him that polar bears have jet black skin.

so, i guess they were black humans that migrated north and evolved into bears?

I think the approprate response to that claim is a mild beating.

so why hasn't someone finally stepped up and given moon the beating he so richly deserves?

did you catch the (video clip of the) "chi" master who was thoroughly trashed by a real fighter over on pharyngula?

more of these "woo masters" need such a reality check.

Welcome back Ichthyic from your hard work.

"An elementary school level"?

Wells needs a beating for all the crap he's said about AIDS.  :angry:

Welcome back Ichthyic from your hard work.


thanks.  it's been a nightmare!  not only a ton of work, but my laptop video card failed, and the replacement i ordered didn't fix the problems, and after two weeks, it was finally determined that the replacement had exactly the same defect.

so, after spending two weeks getting a backup system up to snuff so i could start catching up on work, i finally get word the laptop is fixed.

now I'm just doublechecking the thing to make sure all is in perfect working order, but so far so good.

finally have access to all of my stuff again.

feels good.

I have a LOT to catch up on.
