I've invited Jon here. He's anti-evo and possibly YEC but let's keep it pleasant as it was an invitation. Louis, put the Kettle on!

Tea's made. Biscuit?

Or are you getting me out of the way so I don't mock anyone?

Louis

P.S. I promise not to mock anyone.

P.P.S. Unless it's really REALLY necessary of course. Which it probably isn't.

Bye.

Should Jon join us, he may set the agenda if he wishes.

I suspect some folks may have thoughts on his critique of Dawkin's Weasel:

If we're lookign for a starting point.

Louis. You know I like Jammy-dodgers, NOT happy faces.



I'll have some of those McVitties Chocolate Digestives though. MILK chocoloate, I hope.

How about some Spotted Dick?

I often get sticky toffee pudding on the other hand.

BTW, is this a mock mock?

It's legit. Hoping Jon Shows. Check his website out.

Jon claims to have "the original Weasel"

Not checked :)

I cannot say I am encouraged by what I read at his website but by all means let us hear what he has to say.

In the meantime we could always play a little Mornington Crescent to pass the time.

So, for all you Darwinists out there, where else could we start but at the tangled

Bank!

I thought I remembered Saboe's name.

Richard, I doubt that Saboe will show up. Fleecing the rubes via his own site is one thing; actually participating in discussion without some means of redacting the record is quite another.

From my blog post quoting Saboe as one of a host of antievolutionists who gets trivially refuted stuff wrong:

Quote

The antievolution “magic bullet” intended to dismiss Darwin is a dud. Sub-cellular structure elucidation was another part of science in which Darwin was an active participant. Darwin’s own preferred hypothesis of heredity, though now discredited, presumed the sort of immense complexity at small scales that antievolutionists falsely claim Darwin had no “imagination” for. Many antievolutionists have willingly participated in passing along this falsehood and urging changes in public school curriculum policy based, in part, on their false and ignorant claims. I find it significant that I have yet to encounter any instance  of an antievolution advocate pointing out the actual facts of the case and remonstrating with their colleagues, even though the disconfirming evidence is easy to locate and describe. I can only conclude that antievolutionists in general have no concern for the truth nor for fact-checking even the simplest of their claims. Trusting antievolutionists to help guide policy and form curricula for public schools would be malfeasance, plain and simple.


Ooops, Richard, maybe I'm already a bit too warm?

Poodle.  These guys just aren't any fun any more.  I promise to be nice as long as he answers questions.

I checked out Saboe's site and he's just another YEC huckster.  

Nothing new here.

He knows enough about Dawkin's example program to build a field of straw men to burn.

I don't even need him here to mock him as in IDiot.  He doesn't know anything about web design, either.

And he probably wears dorky shoes.  And drinks beer out of a mug.  Typical, I say, typical!

South Kensington.  I need a museum fix.

Tut tut sir.  There is a separate Mornington Crescent thread for that sort of thing.  Think of the poor innocent children who may be reading this thread, unaware of its nefarious contents.

Hey, Seversky started it!  (and, yes, if he jumped off a cliff so would I.)

If anybody's looking for me I'm at the Science Museum, in the Steam Room looking at pistons with Louis.
