LOL.  Joe is trying to revise history again:

Quote Just because I threw some watermelon rinds out into the woods and they collected ticks- yup 8 legs and all- ,which was totally unexpected, evos are having a hissy fit. And yes I did reproduce it.

But that was years ago and it ws a very dry summer. Dry enough to dry out the vernal pool at the bottom of the hill- something that I had also never observed.

I don't know what the ticks were doing there but the more I thought about the more I figured they were hanging out waiting for a host. A potential host-birds, chipmunks, red and grey squirrels- comes by looking for something with water and some ticks attach themselves.

Anything else I can help you with?

Yes, I'm sure that conclusion had nothing to do with everyone pointing out how egregiously stupid the whole idea of watermelon-eating ticks was.

Quote I'm currently distilling more evidence than your head can even hold. Not that it seems you would be interested in anything that pertains to "intelligence", in a debate pertaining to "intelligence".
You have all manner of unsupported assertions outstanding, from large matters to small.  We've been asking for your evidence since the beginning of this thread, so show us up and share some of it.  However, bear in mind that evidence is documented, corroborated information that logically supports the conclusion, not just hollow assertions.

I guess that the answer depends on how you define "doing science". If it involves bending over for the swellheads then no, I stay away from that.
Ah, can't take a little evidence, eh?

The persecutions that you go through for being a raving lunatic...

My break is over. Back to the science work!
Except of course you have no definition of 'intelligence' nor a "theory" that can handle any instance of intelligence that does not include motor activity.
Nor have you ever presented any evidence in support of your gibberish.
Epic fail, as so often is the case with your bluster and bravado.

BTW, evidence suggests you couldn't distill the whiskey out of a bottle of bourbon.

No, it involves making logical conclusions based on actual evidence - but we've told you that numerous times already.  

Ha ha, now we're just rattling your cage, Goo Goo!   Bwhhhahahahahhahahah!!!!!

You're a hoot!

Quote (GaryGaulin @ Feb. 26 2014,15:42) Quote (fnxtr @ Feb. 26 2014,09:04)You're an attention whore.
After over 300 pages of being trashed for NOT being an attention whore for the science news media (primarily journals) your accusation is an oxymoron.

But do have fun with your sock-puppets, while I try to get some more science work done.
So we can add attention whore, science news media, scientific journals, oxymorons, and sockpuppets to the ever-growing list of concepts that you don't fully comprehend.


Quote That will teach me, for attempting to have a scientific discussion with hopeless nutcases, in a forum for promoting a religious agenda that uses the Theory of Intelligent Design as a weapon. That would be the UD / ID world that's full of nutcases that use Intelligent Design as a wedge to promote a religious agenda.  The only hopeless nutcase around here is yourself.  This site is more for amusement than serious science, but we are clearly in favor of science rather than religion and are holding Intelligent Design up for ridicule as its proponents have so far been unable to show that it is good for anything else.  You have shown that you have no interest in scientific discussion, given that whenever someone raises a legitimate criticism (the way one does in scientific discussion), your responses are deflection, whining, insults, posting links to music, ignoring the criticism, changing the topic, and posting about supposed advances in your program.  You give the impression that for you "scientific discussion" means only conversations that run along the lines of "GG: Here buried in this incomprehensible pile of verbiage without any supporting evidence is my self-evident model in all its amazing wondrousness; Rest of the world: Wow, that's fantastic, you're a genius".  However, it isn't, you're not, and science doesn't work that way.

Quote 40 points for claiming that the "scientific establishment" is engaged in a "conspiracy" to prevent your work from gaining its well-deserved fame, or suchlike.   Quote 20 points for defending yourself by bringing up (real or imagined) ridicule accorded to your past theories.   Quote 10 points for claiming that your work is on the cutting edge of a "paradigm shift".   Quote 40 points for comparing those who argue against your ideas to Nazis, stormtroopers, or brownshirts.

Gary always gives 110%.

Heh. They used to play that on the local campus station at 6am Mondays. Now, thanks to a technology upgrade, we get "library on random". Bleh.

I'd love to see the tiniest bit of evidence that any money at all has been spent specifically to discredit Gary, his "work", or destroy him/his life.
That some or all of these things might have happened as a side effect of doing genuine scientific work of proven value is at most a happy side effect.
Gary's pathetic whiny self-importance is merely one ongoing symptom of his delusions of adequacy.  He's just not very good at it.

Quote (Richardthughes @ Feb. 25 2014,00:29)   Quote (sparc @ Feb. 24 2014,23:19)   Quote "Another thing that makes me think that maybe this work is having an impact is that after it started gaining momentum, Michigan State University, home of Pennock’s Digital Evolution Lab, received a huge $25 million NSF grant in 2010 for BEACON (Bio-computational Evolution in Action CONsortium). I suspect that at least part of the rationale for the NSF giving our tax dollars to fund this boondoggle is the threat to Darwinian evolution posed by the Evolutionary Informatics Lab."
I was not aware that megalomania is measured in Dembskis.

ETA: just learned that the unit can only be properly expressed with caps lock on.

I would love to see what would happen where the situation were reversed, and massive amounts of funding were only allowed to be invested in the destruction of the lives and livelihood of those who play with Genetic Algorithms and all the other trivial garbage used to colorfully parade the academic sacred cow, where it brings in money by the millions, especially when a few thousand "science supporters" are running around claiming that the sky/science is falling (on account of ID).
