Myers didn’t have any serious criticism of Kaku below. We have to conclude one of three things therefore:
1. Myers knows as much or more about evolution than the scientist Kaku. But Myers is Butthurt that the media asked Kaku to comment and not him. This is then a demarcation dispute within the priesthood.
2. Myers knows shit all about evolution. His ideas on evolution anre baseless and wrong, beyond the memorisation of a lot of datum, as befits his specialty. And he’s just trying to compare himself to someone he is jealous of.
There are more options but not many more. Because Kaku’s rendering of evolutionary theory is fine and better than anything that Myers could do without notes. That it might not conform to what the biology bigshot in-crowd considers the norm is neither here nor there. Listen to Kaku and see what you think. I’ll make a friendly amendment to one or two things Kaku is saying. But bear in mind this is unlikely to be anything he would not himself correct given a longer segment. The last person you want an opinion from, for evolution, is PZ Myers. Truly he is just fucking useless.
Oops. Turns out that I cannot imbed he youtube. So I’ll leave a link At this point I advise that you listen to Michio Kaku, and then you’ll understand what I’m saying next.
Really rather good isn’t it. So either way it was just Myers acting butthurt. In fact Myers would be utterly useless in a debate on evolution unless he had been fired from the public tit for all time, was now on minimum wage, and you were simply using his fat ass as a quick source of data. In other words he may have some passing usefulness as a research assistant but only if he had already been laid low and faced potential starvation.
My friendly amendment to what Kaku is saying is simply to point out that isolation doesn’t ipso facto speed up evolution in the sense that having Australia might mean that the aborigines evolved faster. I do get what he was driving at. You need multiple near-isolation to enable success from a minority to wind up becoming a majority trait. This tends to imply failure and mass-culling on the part of the majority by the way.
Essentially the butthurt PZ Myers just went about putting words in Kaku’s mouth. But he had no actual valid criticisms. The real deal is thatt bad “scientists” (ie science workers) try to stake out territory for themselves.
This incident has convinced my that Myers has virtually no understanding of evolution. Essentially Myers is a transplanted High School Physiology teacher. His capacities do not exceed this level.
