So remember how last night Casey Luskin was all for freedom of speech? Academic freedom? This is what ID Creationists do to students that dare to speak out against them.
Casey is allowed to post here to defend himself and his actions, but because he cannot defend his behavior, hes decided to lick his wounds and revise history via press release at EN&V. Please note the obvious: EN&V is bitching about a troll being unable to post on ERV, yet no one is allowed to post on EN&V.
On the bright side, its easy to tell when Casey is lying. His lips are moving. So Im not particularly interested in refuting every sentence of Caseys revisionism.
However, Casey retardedly admits that slandering me and ERV is just a publicity stunt.
I didn’t know exactly what Ms. Haberle was posting because I can’t read her comments…
Then how do you know Ms. Haberle wasnt banned for suggesting we solve the worlds energy crisis by using the corpses of dead babies?
How do you know she wasnt banned for posting nothing but Indian food recipes?
How do you know she wasnt banned for trying to get everyone to invest their retirement funds with this cool ‘Madoff guy?
Oh, you dont.
You just know shes a Creationist, and I made a naughty joke (**GIGGLE!**).
Everyone else actually knows what happened because they have been able to read ‘Ms. Haberles’ comments for months because I didnt update sharpshooter, so Casey has been presenting ‘CREATIONISTS ARE PERSECUTED ON ERV! TITS!’ for 4-6 months, when he has had no idea why ‘Ms. Haberles’ was banned. In forums where I have not been present to defend myself and ERV.
But Casey isnt a spite filled, vindictive ass. He ‘forgives’ everyone.
Casey, newsflash: You can say I raped a toddler on stage and fed the mangled corpse to my rabies-infected pit bull. It doesnt matter. It will never make you right. It will never make me ‘shut up’.
The one point I am going to address is Caseys misrepresentation my Q (which I also didnt get out due to a screaming moderator and Trinity Baptist members). Kids arent ‘dumb’. Kids are kids. Kids cannot discuss most real scientific controversies. Thats why there are no fourth graders working in research laboratories. Kids cannot discuss the validity of the quasispecies model to describe RNA viruses (note, when I said ‘quasispecies’ to Casey, he didnt know what the word meant, and assumed I misspoke). Kids cannot debate on when/where/if B-cells de-differentiate to a pluripotent state, and re-differentiate into macrophages.
Kids need to learn the Earth goes around the sun, not debate the validity of string theory.
Kids need to learn organisms change over time due to random mutation and natural selection/genetic drift, not whether ‘quasispecies’ is a useless/valid/idiomatic term.
Kids need to learn what a blastocyst looks like and the stages of cell division, not whether/how terminally differentiated cells dedifferentiate to a stem-cells.
But the point of Academic Freedom bills isnt to have 4th graders ‘debate’ string theory.
The point of those bills is to allow Creationist teachers, in a position of influence and authority, to stand in front of a classroom and say ‘SCIENTISTS THOUGHT JUNK DNA WAS USELESS BUT CREATIONISTS DIDNT!!!!‘
Academic Freedom bills allow non-controversies, like the ones brought up by Sexy Casey and John ‘I want Hitler to bone me hard’ West brought up last night, to be introduced into classrooms to confuse kids.
THAT was my point. Kids ‘dumbness’ is fixed over time through education. Caseys dumbness is forever.
EDIT TO ADD: I wish, I wish, I wish I had written this post. This stuff is important!
