However, mathematicians tend to understand the mathematics better than non-mathematicians. Fred Hoyle was no slouch at mathematics, and he found fault with the neo-Darwinist account.
Replace "mathematician" with biochemist and "Fred Hoyle" with "Michael Behe" and you have Behe's famous taunt to evolutionary biologists who, he claims, don't really understand biochemistry.

Re: Shame on Pharyngula forum.
Well, comment #133 on that link does have a good point. On the Eocene mammal thread you wrote in very good English. Now you are suddenly writing in a very fake sounding East European accent.
What gives?

Re: Shame on Pharyngula forum.
I'm just asking why you turn your East European accent on and off. You have proven that you can write in near perfect English. Why the sudden "Davison? I know not thees Davison" schtik?
