I guess he is busy looking at some of the book recommendations Drinking Beverage Not actually reading them of course, as that would require him to give-up his absurd notions and definitions of science and evolution first.

You can show him all the diagrams showing changes between species, you can line up all the skulls of our early ancestors all the way to modern human; he'll still have his fingers in his ears with eyes closed. Then post crap like this "Cats...cats...cats...cats... a million times. Look, still no dogs."

I really doubt that he was honestly looking for book recommendations, was more likely an attempt to provoke.

Maybe we could send Ego in search of him. Drinking Beverage

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Do you all think PJ gave up looking for his "black swan" here? Or is it more likely he and childeye are one in the same?

(17-04-2013 08:00 AM)PleaseJesus Wrote:  I'm looking for a book recommendation:

1. I totally believe in evolution, adaptation and speciation

2. I'm aware that we can see microevolution now in nature and in labs

3. I'm looking for a recommended paper or book on macro-evolution

4. I'm utterly not interested in any book or paper whose main tenet is "we assume small changes over time added up to macroevolution" ... really? If it's a proven fact and not a conjecture I'm interested in empirical evidence more than assumptions.

5. A component of macroevolution is the ascendancy of ancillary organs, etc. I'm likewise uninterested in any text whose MAIN thrust is "we can see macroevolution" in the fossil record and "look at all these transitional forms" because we cannot see them in the fossil record. I know about archaeopteryx and flying reptiles, etc. I also know darn well there are no fossils of any kind that demonstrate any evidence of half-formed appendages. A small bone is a small bone, not an incomplete bone. A small appendage is a small appendage, not a vestigial appendage IMHO.

6. I guess I'm looking for statistical analysis, DNA evidence, and well-reasoned conjecture more so than baloney Paleontology and philosophical diatribes from Hitchens and Dawkins.

Please don't try to "prove" Evolution to me on this thread. You all appeal to authority many times, go ahead and give me a book(s) written by a real PhD in biology, DNA research, etc. and appeal again--I will read it in full if it is a science text and not more of your philosophy.

Thanks!

Probably. I have no problem arguing with them to the end of time.

I've noticed you have quite the stamina for it, I can't do it. I use a hit and run tactic since my ability to tolerate nonsense has fallen dramatically as I age.
Continue the good fight. Carry on.
