He seems more unhinged and deluded than usual. His posts are pretty conclusive that he doesn't understand the basics of scientific knowledge and progressive nature of scientific observations and how science is reported to the public. He's pissed off because because scientific discovery and knowledge is cumulative.

And I don't think he wants a discussion, just a perfect forum to spew his Gish Gallops and then run away.

I sure would like to see mike the wiz post links to anyone here saying phylogeny recapitulated ontology. Gould wrote extensively about this failed hypothesis clear back in 1977 in his book, Ontogeny and Phylogeny.

(I'm referring to Message 4 and the following post).
Yep, that's what prompted my comment. He's completely daft, erroneously trying to pick a fight about a subject that has been properly explained almost 50 years ago by S. J. Gould.
