John Davison Does It Again

If you know who John Davison is, you may want to read his new new blog,
The End of Evolution.

If you don’t know, he got kicked out of various fora and decided to start his own weblog, Prescribed Evolution, which currently contains one post with 881 comments.

After a while, he decided that that was getting unmanageable, but instead of starting a new thread, he started a new weblog: New Prescribed Evolution. That one grew to one post and 651 comments, ending with

I am abandoning this blog with all its revealing comments about and by my many enemies. Don’t expect any further responses from me here.

I am opening a new blog with the tantalizing title – The end of evolution. Let’s see what kind of perverts that will attract.

Update, Aug. 30, 2006: I just noticed: not only does Davison not understand that the comments section is not for articles; not only does he not understand that there can be more than one article per weblog; but he also doesn’t understand that blogspot.com allows a person to have more than one weblog. He created all three of his weblogs under different accounts.

That’s like filling up the margin on the first page of a notebook and buying a whole new notebook instead of flipping to the second page. And applying for a new credit card to buy each new notebook.

And this is the man who’s going to overturn 150 years of biology?

  1. I am not a professional blogger, but read all the scienceblogs. If the Vatican (Pope Benedict) really wishes to recognize ID as a valid religious option for the Catholic Church = neocreationsm, where does that leave the DI and especialists, such as the very Rev. W. Dembski of the Quadrangular Community of the Farting Raccoon – ID will be recognized as a form of religious interpretation of the development of species, genera &c., because this might well leave the DI without much room to manouver. The theories of Behe suggest that SOME structures are intelligently designed – and the rest???

  2. “Orthodox” ID won’t be bothered: they’ll just say, “the Pope identifies the Intelligent Designer as the Christian god. The theory of ID allows this, but does not require it.”

    The theories of Behe suggest that SOME structures are intelligently designed – and the rest???

    The rest evolved.

    Behe’s position is not very radical at all: he accepts large amounts of evolution, common descent, the old age of the earth, and so forth. But he thinks that something or someone other than natural phenomena was involved.

    See here, where I summarized his position, and he agreed with my summary.

    The main thing that unites creationists is their opposition to evolution. The reason for this, I think, is that they want to feel that they were specially created by God. They are the intellectual descendants not of Lamarck and other rivals of Darwin, but of the people who believed that the sun revolved around the earth, and that the earth was at the center of the universe.

    Young-earth creationists like Kent Hovind and Answers In Genesis deny that evolution occurs at all, except for some trivial examples. More progressive creationists, like Dembski, Behe, etc. accept that evolution has occurred, but think that there were miraculous interventions during the process of evolution. More progressive Theistic Evolutionists believe that evolution is the mechanism that God used to create humans.

  3. I don’t care and I am though blogging. However I am still enlightening folks at Uncommon Descent and “brainstorms.”

  4. I have no newsletter but am curremtly posting at ISCID’s “brainstorms” forum and eslewhere as linked there. Thank you for your interest in my work and that of my distinguished sources.

  5. JAD,

    You might be interested in the following -[...] especially message #866.

    ICYC it’s #865 now. Are you referring to the part where you apparently farted in mid-sentence and felt it necessary to share with the world?

    I also recommend tOOt keep his trap shut from this time forward.

    John, it’s arguably laudable that you can stay focused, but your train of thought has only one track and it runs in a loop. Discover the magic that is the, “Create new post” button or whatever the feature might be labeled on your latest digital soapbox of choice.

    [0]It’s a shame the pinball machine is disappearing from arcades. I think there’s some fodder here for a most entertaining playfield.

  6. FEZ is just one more run-of-the-mill anonymous blowhard who probably has never contributed a scintilla to the only issue at stake which is the MECHANISM of a past evolution, an evolution I am convinced is no longer in progress. Such creatures abound in lightweight blogs and forums, insecure, unfulfilled sociopaths whose only joy is the denigration of others. I rate forums and blogs on the basis of the fraction of the contributors that are afraid ot disclose their identity. The higher that fraction the lower the quality of the venue. As near as I can tell this one is right in the ball park with Pharyngula, After The Bar Closes and EvC, on a scale of 1 to 10, around 0.5.

  7. You take that back you big meanie you! I am an astoundingly accomplished anonymous blowhard who has never contributed a scintilla to the study of the mechanism of a past evolution! Which makes you and I much alike, save that you are not swaddled in anonymity but instead achieve an almost orgasmic level of validation as a drama queen.

    I love it so!

  8. FEZI

    It is not I that you rail against. It is a half dozen of the finest evolutionists of two centuries. Grow up you illiterate anonymous coward. You make me sick to my stomach. At least Dawkins and Myers have the common sense to pretend I don’t exist. You just mindlessly offer yourself to be slaughtered. I am happy to oblige.

    I love it so!

  9. You make me sick to my stomach.

    Then feel free to stop biting me at any time, drama queen.

    At least Dawkins and Myers have the common sense to pretend I don’t exist.

    Wow – you are a whole new flavor of fruitcake. I will grant you the reality of your existence. Feel better now?

    Grow up you illiterate anonymous coward.

    ’tis teh funniz. You’ve long demonstrated a complete inability to comprehend the basic functionality of a blog, your participation here has avoided entirely addressing the thread subject (which I’ll graciously paraphrase as, “JAD is a clueless git”), and everyone else is illiterate? So are you here to provide some enlightenment regarding your perceived misunderstanding of technology or is this just another forum serving to validate your own self-loathing as a psychopathic troll?

    You just mindlessly offer yourself to be slaughtered. I am happy to oblige.

    Yes, it is indeed mindless. You’re not worth any measurable effort and only make for a mildly amusing plaything.

  10. John A. Davison:

    At least Dawkins and Myers have the common sense to pretend I don’t exist.

    Would you like me to ban you? I’m not planning on doing so, but it sounds as though you enjoy being banned and told to FOAD, so if it’ll make you happy, I’ll be glad to oblige.

  11. arensb, whoever that is.

    I don’t care what you do as I no longer, as of about a week ago, respond to or acknowledge the existence of anonymous posters. I regard them as worthless intellectual cowards. That such a convention should ever have been allowed was a travesty and little more than license for the kind of abuse you are now practicing. Got that? Write that down.

  13. The last phony message at 9:28 am is typcal of the kind of low class blog this one so obviously is. Farewell, so you won’t have to ban me. Whatever you do, never use your right name. That is for real men and women who are willing to divulge their identity.

  14. This is for the record. On July 21m 2007 I received a threatening email from “Ed” […]

    If anyone recognizes this person, please inform me of his identity. Thank you.

  16. Wow… There’s an hour I aint getting back!

    Who gives a sh1t! You both seriously need to get a girlfriend and start enjoying life instead of wasting it wondering about the what and the ifs – because that is never going to get you laid now is it.

  17. Martin,

    Wow… There’s an hour I aint getting back!

    Remedial reading is down the hall, through the door at the end, in the fire with your name on it. We’ll make it nice and hot so all of this irony can be recovered and used for good.

  18. Science is hard work, and evolution scientists often need a good laugh. That is why we have a buffoon like John A. Davison to make us laugh our heads off!

    We laugh at him so!

    A past education has undeniably not sunk into John A. Davison’s head, a present education is undemonstrable.”

  19. Laugh all you want to. My new theory will usurp Dawkins and Darwin and I will be lauded as the greatest scientific mind of all time. PZ Myers will be fired from his job right after I accept my Nobel prize and he will commit suicide to my acceptance speech. Wait and see Dawkinists!

  20. Arensb, laugh all you want to. My new theory will usurp Kent Hovind and Ray Comfort and I will be lauded as the greatest buffoon of all of all time! Michael Behe will be fired from his job right after I accept my Nobhed prize and he will commit adultery with Ben stein to my acceptance speech. Wait and see Rationalists !

    You probably want to add, “Ken Ham will do a booty bump off of Rick Warren” to that list. HTH, HAND.
