I might have said I have no LIFE SCIENCES training. My SCIENTIFIC training is I guess fairly typical of posters, with a BSc (Eng) and an MSc.


You are typical of 'posters,' JJ, but 'posters' are not your competition. Your competition are people who are trained in the relevant disciplines. At least one of them has shown up in this thread and abundantly shown that your Big Idea is idiotic. "Posting" is the only context in which you can deceive yourself into thinking you're more educated than you really are. You are not showing any capacity to use any kind of scientific training, and that's because your scientific training doesn't apply to the topic you're trying to tackle. Engineering is all about design, JJ, and that is where you're coming from. Just for grins, JJ, what is M. Sc. in surveying good for? Learning to use laser ranging without blinding yourself? I honestly don't know, and am curious.

You're here, anonymously, specifically to avoid requirements for credentials, and yet you're trying to flash your credentials, never having tried to demonstrate that anything lies behind them. Your credentials are entirely irrelevant unless you can show you learned something in the process of applying them. Spearthrower has not flashed his credentials; rather, he has shown that he has learned something in applying them.

Nobody has said you're not allowed, JJ. The reason you haven't been banned as a troll is because the emotional difficulties you are having in dealing with facts are manifest over the years and years of your mindless drum-beating and science-baiting. It's because you are a living lesson in illustrating the corner that creationists and religionists paint themselves into when trying to deal with facts.

Look up the puddle analogy. You seem to think your spiel is more sophisticated than that, but it isn't.

Again, you have lost me. What “sub-standard operating system” are you talking about?


Aww, c'mon, JJ. You're a highly-trained engineer; surely you can recognize what's implied in a joke about operating systems, especially when it's directed at a tedious creationist. Give us a better threat-display than pretending that someone else's joke is beneath you by playing the dickless pantomime that it's over your head.

Your conduct in general makes it abundantly clear that you do possess the capacity to recognize expertise when it smacks your feeble narrative silly. That's why you decline to engage with Spearthrower at this stage of the game. It was, if you recall, a discussion of dentition that has made that abundantly clear, and led to pointing out several cases in which you have lied.

Jayjay4547 wrote:that would have shut me up on the line I was pursuing.


The point is not to shut you up, JJ. This is not a scientific society and you're not presenting the results of your research to an audience of peers; you're just serving as the creationist chew toy du jour. If you had a modicum of self-assessment, you'd shut up on your own recognizance. We've found that pointing out your lies, when backed by expertise even you can recognize, is an effective way to shut you up in exchanges with particular posters. By pointing this out to you, by showing that I myself recognize when and where you have lied, I hope to shut off the spigot of intellectual sewage that constitutes your replies to me.
