Actually they think you're fullocrap. You need fully-formed organisms a billion-fold instantaneously, not a runaway quantum fluctuation taking billions of years to get to now.

Yup, you're free to preach BS. Just like UFO nuts and Scientologists.

Just like the worst kind of religious bigots, you condemn what you don't understand out the vacuum of your own profound ignorance. There are Nobel laureates that endorse my message.

There is no question to rational minds that the just-so stories of Darwinism are pseudo-scientific delusions.
So you believe because you want to pretend to know more than everyone else without having to earn it. That's just one of the reasons people fall into the delusion, it does not present any counter argument or in any way demonstrates you are not delusional.

Other delusions are UFOs being alien space craft, big foot, Loch Ness monster, and poltergeists. People hold these things to be true because they want to pretend they know more than everyone else without actually doing the hard work of study and learning. Here I am, almost 40 years old, I don't know everything, I know a lot about technology as that is the love of my life ... but physics I'm still hazy on. Geology I know enough to get by. Chemistry I understand the concepts and basics of well. Archeology I know about Egypt ... and a bit about other findings, but certainly not enough to stand toe to toe with someone who's studied it for decades. Anthropology, well, due to studying psychology a bit I know something of it ... barely enough to say I am studied..... do you see where this is going?

Just because you have a bumper sticker slogan to recite doesn't mean you have any answers at all. Fill in the answers with non-answers like "god dun it" and you have no room for the actual answers.

What is there to understand? You tell everyone the limits of your knowledge freely, you spread it on here even. You sound like a kid who was corrected by the teacher you have a crush on.

Respectable to whom? Certainly not among other actual scientists, if they even hint at the nonsense you speak of. Go ahead, list them, compound your lies.

Yes. You're confessing to be an ignoramus on what I'm talking about.

Really, care to try to explain relativity in your own words?

I admit to not knowing everything, and you say that's a bad thing. You profess to know everything when you know nothing, that makes you a liar.

Odd (not really) that you try to "publish" your ideas on an open internet forum (and your pathetic self serving, self promoting website) rather than submit them to peer review journals in the appropriate scientific discipline.

Oh, wait. You tried that, didn't you? And IIRC you were an ABYSMAL FAILURE.

Odd then, that they are accepted by the VAST majority of the people who should know that they are "pseudo-scientific delusions", the world's scientists.

The VAST majority of them accept the ToE and think you're butters.

Go figure.

All fine and dandy, but I'm not downloading and opening a PDF just to search for a synopsis. Why not just copy paste it?

I derived a nonlinear version of the Lorentz transformation, which Albert Einstein didn't believe existed.

Did you miss the fact that I am not a physicist? Put it in code if you want me to understand that. I take it you know little about communication.

Anyhow, it still makes little difference as we have strayed way beyond my point, which was you can't know everything, and claiming "god dun it" is saying you know everything.
