John Elder replied to tom sarbeck's discussion Top Ten Reasons the Universe is Electric
"With all due respect Ruth the phrase was :"This whack job of quack science " referring to the pseudoscience, not the man. It was no more disrespectful than anything said by others constantly about those of us who disagree with…"

John Elder replied to tom sarbeck's discussion Top Ten Reasons the Universe is Electric
" John and Idaho Spud: I second the above motion! This whack job of quack science has gone on far too long on the Nexus and never once has a single bit of data or evidence been presented in support of it. Only ad hominim attacks under the guise…"

John Elder commented on Donald R Barbera's blog post Intelligent Design?
"I agree with Loren, and applaud your loss of temper. I , for one, think science has been far too tolerant and accommodating towards theistic beliefs. If we were debating these issues within the scientific community we would never be so polite and…"

"Also, BenGee, as we have talked before, being a scientist is really about adopting a realistic world view that provides an acceptance of realistic rules about "how we know what we know"and how we evaluate what constitutes acceptable…"

John Elder replied to Jonathan Simeone's discussion Can People of Color be racist?
"Right again BenGee. When people track our origins around the planet using our genetics they are not really tracking our "racial" origins. Many people misunderstand that what they actually are tracking are some few genetic markers that…"

"Amazing, isn't it? Same old tactics that earmark all psueudoscience. Attack the scientist instead of dealing with reality. To reuse an Asimov quote previously cited on the Nexus: "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and…"

"John, You are wasting your time on this EU pseudoscience garbage. This argument has been had for years by many on the Nexus and any real science brought  to the discussion was and will be simply fanatically shouted down. Eventually the argument…"

John, you can go to "SETTINGS," scroll down a bit, and to the right of the "SAVE" button there is a link labeled, "Leave Atheist Nexus."  I believe there are a couple options regarding whether to remove all your posts and comments or not ... but personally, I wish you'd hang around.

In any case, all the very best to you and yours.
