(Customer review for Evolution: A Theory In Crisis)
I did a comparative study on this and the Species of Origin. I have to say, I was once an evolutionist, but I now I realize how much blind faith I held in it.

The Outsider

Why does this sound like the Discovery Institute has been doing a little astroturfing?

Yeah, you and a million others.

It's true. Research, evidence, and logic = blind faith. Following something that was written in a book thousands of years ago, and has only changed enough to cover its butt = a solid theory.

"Species of Origin?" "Evolutionist?" "Blind faith?"

Are those burning pants I smell?

Horrible book, gave me the craps

Well that's your problem. I don't have 'faith' in anything. I know from the evidence that evolution is the best explanation from the diversity of life.

I'm Charles Darwin and I support this message.

Isobel? Do you also turn into a hawk at dawn? Must be teh ebilutionary magic..

I don't believe you'd know how to do a comparitive study if your life depended on it. I don't believe you did a comparitive study. I don't believe you read OoS. I don't believe you realy believe blind faith to be a bad thing.

Species of Origin? The say you heck.

1/29/2009 9:14:02 PM


The "Species of Origin," you say? Was that written by Darwin Charles?

1/29/2009 9:14:26 PM


So, why did you went to the blind and deaf?

1/29/2009 9:15:06 PM

We can tell you're lying because you used the term "evolutionist". Stop padding the reviews just to spread your fundie stupidity.

Species of Origin? Is this like State of Origin for aliens?

If you call yourself an evolutionist, you never were one.

I did a comparative study on this and the Species of Origin.

Either Yoda you are, or study it at all you didn't, since otherwise what it is called you would know.

You're a big, fat, smelly liar.

Since when did evolution explain the origin of life?

1/29/2009 9:44:02 PM


Liar, What prove do you have against it that not immediatly dismissable (religious creation stories) or critiques from the professional world (rare and only on some finer details)

1/29/2009 9:45:59 PM


Species of Origin

There you go, you haven't even opened the book and can't even spell it correctly. You are nothing but a fucking liar! What does the babble say about where liars like you end up?

1/29/2009 10:05:15 PM


'Species of Origin'??????

That explains it then. When you have read Origin of Species you may be wiser.

There are (many) legitimate problems with the ToE.

However, "Godditit" is not one of them.

Its not right to lie for Jesus.

P.S. - do a little bit more book reading before you try to impersonate someone who undestands evolution.

There's nothing wrong with the term "evolutionist" and it is regularly used by evolutionists in the scientific literature.

A test of the chromosomal theory of ecotypic speciation in Anopheles gambiae
Nicholas C. Manoukis, Jeffrey R. Powell, Mahamoudou B. Touré, Adama Sacko, Frances E. Edillo, Mamadou B. Coulibaly, Sekou F. Traoré, Charles E. Taylor, and Nora J. Besansky.
PNAS 105:2940-2945, 2008.


The role of chromosomal inversions in speciation has long been of interest to evolutionists. Recent quantitative modeling has stimulated reconsideration of previous conceptual models for chromosomal speciation. Anopheles gambiae, the most important vector of human malaria, carries abundant chromosomal inversion polymorphism nonrandomly associated with ecotypes that mate assortatively. Here, we consider the potential role of paracentric inversions in promoting speciation in A. gambiae via “ecotypification,” a term that refers to differentiation arising from local adaptation.
