Okay, It’s Not A Nobel, But It’s Still Nice

Thanks to Scientific American for awarding one of its Science & Technology Web Awards to the Loom as one of their 25 favorite sites on the web, for “enchanting readers with every post.”

Congrats also to three other sites that are on my RSS: Panda’s Thumb, Real Climate, and Chris Mooney’s The Intersection.

  2. Congrats Carl — well deserved.

    I know I am not alone as I visit The Loom each day for a few minutes of intellectual recharge. Thanks for helping my feed my procrastination habit so well….

  3. I was anxious to comment on the substance of the “Beauty of Deceit” thread but found I could not post on that or a number of other threads. Why is that so?

    In any event, Natural Selection, the cornerstone of the Darwinian myth, never had anything to do with the emergence or subsequent evolution of any organism. Its sole role was that of conserving the status quo of that which had emerged right on schedule from a prescribed evolutionary script. That is all that it does today and all that it ever did. Even now it ultimately fails even at that task as it also did in the past which is why all that we see is rampant extinction without a single documented replacement. Without Natural Selection there would never have been extinction, the only thing it has ever been able to properly contribute to the evolutionary sequence, a sequence which is now apparently quite finished and has been for a very long time.

    Thank you for allowing my heresy even though it is not on the proper thread.

  4. What, no response to a frontal assault on the entire Darwinian myth? Am I to assume that I do not exist, just as Berg, Broom, Goldschmidt, Schindewolf, Bateson, Grasse and all the other hard-headed critics of the Darwinian fairy tale no longer exist either? So it would seem.

  5. Leaving unanswered challenges to mythical notions at ideologically dominated forums has become my favorite pastime. I left a dozen at John Rennie’s SciAm blog which has not produced anything in months. Is he still the editor of Scientific American? God knows he shouldn’t be.

  6. Is that the best that Pim van Meurs can come up with? So it would seem.

    I would really rather hear from Carl Zimmerman before he becomes Zarl Cimmerman and thereby joins with Esley Welsberry, Dilliam Wembski, M. P. Zeyers, Dichard Rawkins and all the other ideologues that refuse to acknowledge both me and with me those distinguished scientists that have allowed me to present an alternative hypothesis for the great mystery of organic evolution. The “Fundies” and the “Darwimps” are both tragically wrong. Write that down.

  7. Well I am John A. Davison and if my adversaries find it necessary to hide their identity, in my opinion, they should not be posting at all. I am still waiting to find out why certain threads are closed and why my questions and challenges like those of my several sources continue to be ignored here and elsewhere. There is absolutely nothing in the Darwinian model that ever had anything to do with the origin or evolution of any creature beyond the production of, in some but not all by any means, intraspecific varieties.

    If you can’t attach your real name to a comment, rest assured it will be ignored.

  8. John, as I explained in an earlier post, a transition to a new blog software system has caused some disruption in the comment posting. There is no conspiracy going on. I personally do not have time to respond systematically to the comments posted here, and others are free to respond or not respond as they wish. I would appreciate it if you would dispense with ad hominem attacks on other commenters–a policy I hope that all commenters would follow. Thanks.

  9. ad hominem attacks on anonymous posters? Surely you must be jesting. I want you or some other Darwinian to respond to my challenges to the most tested and failed hypothesis in the history of science. If you are to busy for that as you seem to be, let the record show just that. I am used to being ignored just as were all my fellow critics, the finest minds of two centuries and not a Creationist in the lot. As I have repeatedly claimed, we simply do not exist because we cannot and must not exist. The simple truth is that you cannot cite a single example of selection, natural or artificial, serving to transcend either the species barrier or that of any of the higher taxanomic categories. In other words you subscribe to a fantasy. Every Darwinian does and for one reason only. They are congenitally incapable of recognizing that there has been a plan and the plan has been executed. Trust me, but of course you can’t. Einstein explained why.

    “Everything is determined…by forces over which we have no control.”

    “Our actions should be based on the ever-present awareness that human beings in their thinking, feeling, and acting are not free but are just as causally bound as the stars in their motion.”

  11. Let the record show that NeoDarwinism no longer has any defenders at least on SciAm Perspectives where I left a dozen unanswered challenges and, as near as I can tell, here as well. All in all I am pleased. I am currently posting at ISCID’s “brainstorms” in case anyone wants to chime in.

  12. The silence is deafening with significance, just as it was at SciAm Perspectives and other forums too numerous to itemize.

  13. Why must you delete my posts? John Rennie, much to his credit, never found that necessary. Instead, he just closed up his shop. Perhaps you should follow his example. Of course if your so-called forum is only a fan club, continue deleting commments and challenges to your declared posture. At least make the reasons for your actions available for all who read your blog.
