|AFDave started out with promise, but has recently shown all the telltale signs of being just another scientifically illiterate fundy-bot. He's begun doing the Gish gallop, continues to use AIG as his primary info source even though he was shown how dishonest they are, and totally ignores all other evidence that refutes his hackneyed YEC baloney.|
Different clown, same circus.
He has, however, conceded a point; the AiG argument on gene head-to-tail fusion was shown to be false. He has held his hands up and said that the AiG position was wrong, and that he agreed that the science presented at AtBC did indeed convince him.
In my (admittedly few) years of following this strangely American controversy, I have never, ever, ever, ever, ever seen a YEC concede a single point about anything.
Although he did say that he would write to the author of the erroneous AiG piece correcting them, and we have yet to see if he will stand by his word on that point .
Progress, however small the steps, is still progress ...
