Ah, now that's what I'm talkin about, "It goes to the substance of how evidence is perceived and utilized".
Which evidence? That in the field you are interested in for one reason or another?
Nobody on here, as far as I'm aware is saying anything about the evidence fm was talking about. I accept it in its entirity. More than he does I might say. In all fields. fm is just in the tart's knicker's curtains territory. The coy stuff.
So who are you arguing with? Nobody. It is just a mutual back-scratching extravaganza.
What exactly was wrong with my statement that caused you to say it was ass-backwards?
I was leafing through Leakey, off someone's shelf I might add to avoid any misunderstandings, and there were some pictures of the Leakey family board of directors gazing pompously at a skull which they said was blah-blah-blah and it made them rich and famous and admired. I wish I could have heard them. I bet I would have pissed myself. At a distance I mean. Not actually there. They were in the bush for phewk's sake. In a tent. In shorts. Mary is shown cradling the little skull and no doubt teleologising like a Catherine's Wheel going off.
It's just not cool is evolution nut-casery. The Pope's cool.
PS- Have you heard Mr Blair's pulling troops out of S. Iraq.
