Leo: I know you won’t defend your Cambridge PhD. Asks about Cambrian. Also, is Disco. creationist? Now she’s getting pissy, and blithering about lots of topics.
Meyer: “Do you know what an argument from authority is?” Will you offer one now? Accuses experts of appealing to authority, rather than appeal to expertise which they actually used.
Whines about other people’s testimony, ignoring Leo’s many confused and blithering questions. Then accuses Hillis of presenting half-baked ideas. He then says the Cambrian explosion lasted less than 5 million years. He is literally filled with crap. There is apparently only room within him for hot air. Oh, now we’re blowing smoke.
Reliving old fights. “We have people at Disco. who do what we regard as scientific research.” Nice qualification there. We haven’t advocated teaching ID in classes since 2002.
Hardy: Age of earth? 4.6 billion years.
Knight: Is there any science to back up accusation of “half-baked ideas” against other presenters? Also, why wasn’t he called on decorum violation? Appeals to (his own) authority? Can’t allow one side to decide what’s credible. Serious challengers with serious credentials. Dude, what did you just say about appeals to authority?
Knight: You didn’t answer me.
Meyer works “Sternberg” and “junk” into the same sentence, but the connecting words are all wrong.
Whines about Kitzmiller. Whines about circularity in phylogenetic analysis.
McLeroy: Information question. Meyer: Big problem in biology. Won’t define biology.
McLeroy: What about teeth? McLeroy refers to “the latest article on the topic, ‘Tooth Evolution Theory Lacks Bite.’ ” You mean this article from Creation Safaris? C’mon, at least make us work at this, Don.
More in a moment.
