Oh really? I can name several off the top of my head...

How many of these people are microbiologists?

...you don't think if I slowed down picked through them more carefully I can come up specifically with microbiologists?

well, err, that's sort of the point. Strangely, when you make a claim, some of us here sort of expect you to be able to back up that claim. Not reply with "well, don't you think I could substantiate my claim if I really tried to?"

Or are we being unfair?

Hmmm...

Part of 1971? and whose sole academic output at that time was a paper on the *philosophy* of biology. Sorry, PaulK's point stands.

Sorry cavediver but making liitle laughing smiley faces (which seems to be your trademark) does not make Berlinski's credentials any less credible.

No, Berlinksi's credentials make him that much less credible

Chuck writes:

Give it another shot.

Ok

Paulk writes:

Berlinski has no biological qualifications either

Hmmm... no academic qualifications in evidence there. Why would another shot be required?

I think my mocking laughs are doing an admirable job, but thanks for the concern. It is noted
