Before Thwoth, Cito, Romansh, Fluttermoth, myself or any other contemporary poster in this thread actually posted, Paul was already trotting out this juvenile trick to evade addressing substance.

On and on and on - Paul's endless gymnastics to evade substantive criticism of his stupid idea.

12 years of this egotistical insanity.

Do you consider your very existence, your being here, the result of an uninterrupted chain of "cause and effect" from bang to now?


Shame you can't establish your central claim that reversing this to the beginning and hitting play would result in the same events occurring ala your attempted teleological directionality.

Spearthrower wrote:...your repetitive lying is confusing you.

For example, you keep on wittering on about 'process' as if I've said evolution isn't a process, despite me actively challenging you dozens of times to provide a single instance of me saying otherwise.

Again, because this is how the universe actually works, I can provide direct quotations from this thread showing that you are fucking lying again.

A hairstyle, however, does evolve over time, Paul.
That's because the word 'evolve' means 'to develop gradually', Paul.
We wouldn't say the hair evolves, Paul, because it just grows in dimension.
But, Paul, we would say that the hairstyle evolves because it changes in many and more complex ways.
What we definitely wouldn't do, Paul, is to say that a hairstyle evolves in a manner equivalent to that involved with natural selection, Paul, or pretend, Paul, that just because the word 'evolve' is used that it also has to mean that all aspects of the term used in Biology - shorthand for a process involving inheritance and differential survival statistically measured over generations of living organisms - also just get ignorantly transferred across as if anyone with half a brain, Paul, actually thinks that's logical, Paul. Like words, Paul, are fucking magic, or something.


http://www.rationalskepticism.org/post2 ... s#p2785633

Evolution is how biology has come to be - look around at anything biological today, and the process by which it came to be like that is evolution.

So why are you lying about what I said TO ME?

Are you that egotistical that you think you can somehow oblige me to believe that I didn't say what I clearly did, but instead said something you keep lying about?

Put up or shut your lying trap, Paul. Provide a single instance of me denying that evolution is a process: OF COURSE IT"S A FUCKING PROCESS, you total dingbat! Evolution, being change over time, necessarily involves a process, i.e. a sequence of events over time... it's like arguing with a 3 year old.

I've shown so many instances of your lying now - it's time you start owning this. If you can't change your behavior, why do you expect others to change their response to you?

Same input - same output.

Repeat these baseless lies again about me, and I will reference these to the moderators - you more than deserve it, despite everyone here giving you ample chances to engage with some basic fucking honesty.

I can't make it any easier for you than typing it dozens of times.

Your refusal to acknowledge what's written isn't my problem.

That's now a link to a post with the answer contained therein, linking to a prior post with the answer contained therein, linking to a prior post with the answer contained therein, linking to a whole series of prior posts all with that answer contained therein.

If the moderators don't think this is trolling, I'd like to see an alternative explanation for it.

Over 97% of his 1301 posts are in this topic. I intend to leave him here to rot. We have no rule here against being wrong, let alone being a second decade into the same wrong.

This idiocy is a god damned monument to idiocy. And, it’s ours to show the world how stupid stupid can get and for how long.

It's not about being wrong that's the problem (I completely agree to this thread being a testament to his ignominy), it's him incessantly lying about what members have written.

He's devoted dozens of posts to just straight up lying about other members - it's a significant part of the last 100 pages.

For example, he can't show a single instance of anything I've written that can be read as me holding the position that evolution isn't a process. Yet he's stated that's my position dozens - literally dozens - of times. I've cited 8 instances of me referring to evolution as a process, so where's the obligation on him to substantiate his strawman?

It's that incessant lying which, even when I've proven the opposite, he simply repeats the lie that has to be taken as trolling. He can both be wrong and not be a lying asshole at the same time.

What's most frustrating is that I think it amounts to unequal treatment - if I acted like this, I know I'd end up with a caution and eventually a warning. How many of my own warnings are from him reporting my posts?

Thank you sir for your honesty and running commentary on the thread so far as you see it.

I value your honesty. I want your opinion.

Do you see the fact of "process" as an irrelevance? Such a small fact: "process" not worthy of a line of inquiry?

The question is: Should we throw away our first knowledge? 

Can you be an arbiter?

Do you have a rational opinion, sir? 

You do understand why I am at odds with mainstream thinking; it is because my "first run to science definition" of "evolution" is "Tprocesshe cosmos."

I have not treated the little-known fact of "process" as nothing and poured scorn on it. 

My question to you sir is "What is evolution?"

What is your go-to answer to the question posed and why?

Paul.

Let's put an end to the argument. NS stands for "artificial selection." Both mean the same, capsulation interchangeable.

We'd be correcting and updating Charles Darwin by observation.

He was a man trapped in his time. He edged his bet; artificial selection takes the "thinker out of the funker."

We can look at nature without being part of it. His idea was already a dangerous one. the Common ancester.

Human less one for politics of the day.

Primal selection, natural selection, human selection, and then, with the benefit of hindsight, looking forward, artificial selection.

It is an observation: nature was making selection before NS.

Proto plantary disc, Solar systems, stratigraphy, by means of Primal selection. Rafts of evidence.

Why are people engaging with this thread? Genuine question. How can anyone at all not have hundreds of things better to do than waste their time on this?

I drop in occasionally to see if Paul ever becomes more coherent, more interested in actual discourse, but every time I'm disappointed.

Honestly, why?
