Statements like this show you're not a bot.

This failure of engagement even with very obvious cue words available would simply be unacceptable.

Bot: Hi, I am Botto, the friendly bot - what would you like to talk about today?
Participant: Hi Botto, it's raining today so I've got nothing to do - let's talk about tennis!
Bot: I am bonobo, eaty mcfry lambast in coco cabana
Participant: Uh, I don't understand - do you know tennis?
Bot: Tennis? Sure, I am the greatest tennis player in the history of the universe. Tennis can do up zinc following molded lepers careen akimble aboo. I have no arms.

A scientist useing the word "evolve" "evolved" "evolution" without any inclination to mechanism or types of selection is also an example of gross simplification.

Asleep. Without insight.

No, not exactly.

I think you put in a tremendous amount of time and effort into engaging with Paul.
I also think you have received zero reward in terms of engagement from Paul.

I suspect based on the length of this thread it is an exercise in futility. Mea culpa too.

If you like this one try the expanding earth thread, or the 9/11 thread, or mythical Jesus, or the hominins hitting dogs with sticks thread, i forget what that one was titled but it was a classic.

Ahh I gotcha - thanks for clarifying - although the other would probably have been true anyway! :)

I'll be honest: it really just comes down to how fast I type. If I typed slowly, I doubt I'd bother! :lol:

To use Paul's kooky phraseology; it's still on first base.

It's because there's absolutely nothing under the hood, which is really saying something considering the existence even of the hood is highly questionable.

Did charles darwin propose "one process" to explain speciation.

The big bang a single beginning denotes a "single process".

Expert of metaphor you thrower. HS = AS. :clap: The common ancestor, the Bbang treated as the 1st metaphorical common ancestor.

Everybody here understands that you are the leading authority on the subject of biological evolution.

If I look to the core understanding of the subject it is because you have driven me there, you are the man.

Charles Darwin proposed a single proces with a mechanism and common ancestor to explain speciation.... All you.

On the fence romansh?

Natural selection = human selection = artificial selection. Amalgamated reference. Metaphor.

Or specific? Emergence.

That I suspect is more a result of your skills at explaining things and understanding the source of selection and its role in evolution.

No.

This has been explained to you before, and not just explained, but Darwin's actual words on the subject cited.

Darwin made observations about different groups of finch's beak shape noting their distribution across different islands and the relation with the kind of food they ate.

Finally, he proposed no 'process' - this is you once again desperately attempting to have Darwin's success reflect on your own ideas despite you not having an idea that merits likening to Darwin or his success

Yawn

If you're trying to be a condescending prick, Paul - you need to write in clear English.


[quote="pfrankinstein";p="2792790"] HS = AS. :clap: [/quote]

As we've established beyond your ability to rebut - there's not such thing as "HS" - it's a figment of your imagination, which exists solely because what you lack in depth of knowledge, you fill with arrogant certainty about how right you are.

Meanwhile, the membership here being scientifically literate all know that whatever it is you're doing - it's not science.

Super dumb, Paul.

Oh you can tell the difference between a wall and a rabbit, so I must be right.

Oh you can tell the difference between heat and wet, so I must be right.

Oh the sky is blue, so I must be right.


If you're going to be this nonsensical about your declarations of victory, you may as well just keep writing 'I am winner'.

The point is, again, that because you have no support for your position, no substance to your claims, you keep looking for specious ways to claim you're right, such as by talking about what Darwin did or didn't do as if something he did means you're right.

We all know you've got nothing Paul, you can't even answer simple questions directed at you, instead spending pages cavorting around evasively, pretending to be a genius while failing over and over again.
