Iano, Hydroglyphx, Parasomnium, in, "irrefutable Departure" thread. (And a few others)
It's only taken me about 5 months to leave EvC, and I'm almost out the door now.
But there are a few reasonable folk here in this thread, that have not been opportunistic, and have made some good points. I commend them for being open-minded, and hope they will consider what I have said without just labelling me a Jesus-freak.
I also commend Admins, such as Percy and Moose, for being tolerant and allowing me to post over the years.
.....I also thank all of my friends and family, my editor, my agent, .......

Sometimes someone manages to say something that you just couldn't put into words. Done very nicely by Dr Adequate, here replying to slevesque's claims of fraudulent fossil evidence. The money quote:
quote:Based on one piece of evidence that paleontologists are professionally competent, you grasp at the conclusion that they're not; based on the fact that they are able to detect a hoax, you wish to believe that so many hoaxes have gotten by them as to entirely vitiate the evidence for bird evolution; based on the fact that (apparently) you trust them completely when they tell you that "Archaeoraptor" was a fake, you seem to be concluding that you need never trust them again; and based on the fact that the peer-review system worked perfectly, you conclude that it is flawed. And all this you base on pointing to just one occasion when you think that they got something right.

I have opinions on what I feel I have a fair, impartial, and balanced understanding of rather than doing what most people do which is side with their party lines. So if choosing to be an owl instead of a sheep is wrong, then I don't want to be right.
