Feel free to elaborate.

You won't, of course, because you don't have a coherent point to make, but feel free all the same.

Yes, yes. And what is your point, precisely?

Ok Vlad, time to cut bait. Verbose rhetoric ... your wordy-words aren't interesting, lack style, and your wall-o-words is aesthetically dull. If presenting ideas and you reach no one, you fail. Is that what you wanted... to fail?

It's an extremely common problem among amateur writers, particularly those with overinflated egos.

It's called purple prose. It's what happens when a rather inexperienced writer has access to a thesaurus, but not necessarily a dictionary or a grammar textbook, and it is almost always the sign of someone who has no actual idea of what they're talking about.

As it is here.

RE: Is neo-darwinism a scientific theory?
The allopatric speciation is a nice idea, clear and simple. The funny thing is
that this device isn't related to the so much prized idea of natural selection.
NS or no NS, the allopatry appears just as Deus ex machine... The independence
of the allopatry of natural selection was quite clear to keen sir Karl: “If you
isolate a small number of individuals from the main population and prevent them
from interbreeding with the main population, then ... the distribution of genes
in the gene pool of the new population will differ somewhat from that of the
original population. This will happen even if selection pressure is completely
absent.” (Karl Popper. Natural Selection and the Emergence of Mind. Evolutionary
Epistemology, Rationality, and the Sociology of Knowledge. Open Court Publishing,
1993, p. 144). "Modern synthesis" is as coherent as the Old Testament.
Though the allopatric speciation really works, its evolutionary significance
is negligible. The territories are far from being so intensely segregated that
to support the allopatric origin of innumerable species. You wouldn't believe:
prudent theorists never made estimates of the number of barriers in question.
Why, they merely make irresponsible statements...

Yes, yes. That's wonderful.

What is your point, Vladimir? Did an allopatric speciation event touch you inappropriately when you were very young? Is that what this is about?
