Field of Science

Another Fun Blogger Gathering

I returned home late on Sunday (Canada Day!) from Halifax, Nova Scotia where I was attending the Society for Molecular Biology & Evolution (SMBE) annual meeting and the immediately following Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIfAR) Program in Evolutionary Biology meeting. There was lots of good science and one highlight was a dinner get-together of a few bloggers and blog-readers. Bloggers included in our group were RPM, Rosie Redfield, Jason Stajich, Reed Cartwright, and Jacob Tennessen. Both Reed and RPM have posted more about this gathering, including a complete list of attendees (pictured left). Thanks everyone for an enjoyable time! This is an activity that I hope to continue...


  1. Sorry sir, no gene has ever evolved. They were all created.

    The argument continues:
    Many people, when they can't provide evidence for their theory, adopt the strategy of falsehood. Such is the case with many of those who have fallen victim to the propaganda of renowned evolutionists.

    If evolutionists want to end the arguments all they have to do is, get their brilliant heads together and assemble a 'simple' living cell. This should be possible, since they certainly have a very great amount of knowledge about what is inside the 'simple' cell.

    After all, shouldn't all the combined Intelligence of all the worlds scientist be able the do what chance encounters with random chemicals, without a set of instructions, accomplished about 4 billion years ago,according to the evolutionists, having no intelligence at all available to help them along in their quest to become a living entity. Surely then the evolutionists scientists today should be able to make us a 'simple' cell.

    If it weren't so pitiful it would be humorous, that intelligent people have swallowed the evolution mythology.

    Beyond doubt, the main reason people believe in evolution is that sources they admire, say it is so. It would pay for these people to do a thorough examination of all the evidence CONTRARY to evolution that is readily available: Try The evolutionists should honestly examine the SUPPOSED evidence 'FOR' evolution for THEMSELVES.

    Build us a cell, from scratch, with the required raw material, that is with NO cell material, just the 'raw' stuff, and the argument is over. But if the scientists are unsuccessful, perhaps they should try Mother Earth's recipe, you know, the one they claim worked the first time about 4 billion years ago, so they say. All they need to do is to gather all the chemicals that we know are essential for life, pour them into a large clay pot and stir vigorously for a few billion years, and Walla, LIFE!

    Oh, you don't believe the 'original' Mother Earth recipe will work? You are NOT alone, Neither do I, and MILLIONS of others!

  2. One thing about real science is that good ideas always win in the "struggle for existence" (in a meta-analogy). If you can disprove that genes have evolved (and then infer that everything was created), please refute the evidence that exists to the contrary. Indeed, if you have something further to say, please don't post anonymously.

  3. This is the same troll who posted this same cut-and-paste comment at about five threads at my blog.

    Many people, when they can't provide evidence for their theory, adopt the strategy of falsehood.

    This was when my irony meter burst.
