There's no need for you to explain your understanding of Christ's crucifixion. You have already revealed your pathological hatred of truth.

Now you are truly deranged. I did not compare you to him.

You might want others to, that is your sin not mine.

I merely pointed out that a group of loons kicked you out for being loonier than they were.

Nope, otherwise you would not have made the same idiotic mistake that Sanford made. Sanford tried to cheat because he knew he was wrong. Biologists can easily point out his error. His math was actually half decent and would have passed the mathematicians and information specialists that he tried to fool.

But information scientists were the ones who came up with the phrase GIGO. They know how a bad starting point can ruin an entire claim. That was why once Sanford's duplicity was revealed the peer review of his work stopped in its tracks and was ultimately denied.

What are you talking about?

I really don't care why the SDA's kicked you out. It is enough to point out that a bunch of loons kicked out a fool who was too big of a loon for them.

Thanks for revealing your contempt for the common experience that Jesus and I share together. So you're obviously expressing your contempt for me in the same way that you despise Jesus.

Why shouldn't I feel honored by that?

<quoted text>Mathematicians outrank biologists when it comes to understanding Sanford's genomic degeneration theorem, which says a lot about biology. Since you misunderstand the unified nature of science and mathematics, you err in believing that math professors are not universal experts on all questions mathematical.

I was unaware that they had published a pop up edition of this work.

You are only half right. I do not despise Jesus.

And it seems that you are treading mighty closely to blasphemy.

Shoob, you should talk to a mental health specialist as soon as possible. We don't want you to go the route of Jimbo.

No, "devolution" was almost immediately debunked. Why do you think that there is any devolution? There is no scientific support for it. Sanford knew he his idea was a dead fish before he tried to get it published. That is shown by his actions.

<quoted text> I possess an incredible amount of critical and rational power. I consider Sanford's 30 patents and over 80 published scientific paper in peer-reviewed journals as irrefutable evidence that you are unquestionably dishonest. How could you not be a religiously controlled bigot?
You are an idiot wannabe that never was and the internet has finally given you a voice. Unfortunately is could provide no useful content to go with that voice. No one is saying that Sanford isn't intelligent or that he can't do good work. It is just that this particular piece of work is garbage. That you can't see that or bring yourself to admit it says all I need to know about your incredible amount of critical and rational power.

Did you know that I have the ability to fly. I can see great distances. I have even lifted a car over my head.

Yes, you can say anything you want on the internet.

Tells us how you have regular lunches with Christ and he just fawns over your vast intellect like a school girl.

Not on "opinions" on the facts that other people can bring up.
This article debunks Sanford's nonsense fairly well:
http://newtonsbinomium.blogspot.com/2006/10/r...
Even Sanford knew his idea was bullshit. You could see that by his approach to peer review. He submitted his article to the mathematics/information science part of the journal and not to the biological part. The biologists would have been able to show what was wrong with his assumptions and his book would have been blown out of the water peer review wise. As I said he almost got peer review. At the last moment his evil plot was foiled by the good guys.
Even the various creatard sites did not make hardly a peep about how Sanford's peer reviewed stamp was taken away. The few real scientists that work at those places knew what he did wrong.
Thanks for posting the link. It is unfortunate that Shubee Doo probably didn't even bother to look at the material contained there.

You seem to be the only person implying that he was.

Again blasphemy warning.
