PZ Myers

For what it's worth, I have no idea what was going on there. The whole point of my article was that here was this turn-of-the-century guy Dennert making specific predictions that would prove spectacularly wrong, but they actually had a context in which they were not stupid ideas -- the first decade of the 20th century was an awfully interesting one for evolutionary biology, with the mechanism of inheritance in a state of discombobulating flux, and heresy against Darwin was excusable. Davidson should have been arguing with me, not you.

Ginger Yellow

I've never been able to figure Davidson out. 95% of his posts on biology blogs are perfectly sound and rational, but his personal site screams "loony" as clearly as any creationist's or magic water purveyor's, as does the fact that he links to it at the end of every single comment.

The Constructivist

Scott, it looked to me like he had put on his St. George armor to fight the dragon of ID and read you as defending rather than historicizing what's-his-face. Whatever.

Sorry, I just don't get the three-way feud between Valve, Weblog, and LS. Must be fun to be in it, but not fun to watch.

Anthony Paul Smith

Actually, it's less fun to be in it than it is to watch. But we all do it for the kids. The kids just love this shit. Right up there with pop rocks and side kicks.
