Hey, you all want me to nom this? If you all are interested I will, but if yall are bored with HIV Denier claims Ill ignore him.
Or do you all want to nom him? *shrug* I dont mind.
Nom away dear ERV.
Your smackdowns always make me giggle.
Nom the tard.
By all means, NOM away!
plz to be nom’ing teh rtard
Plz to be nomming.
I don’t feel I’ve paid enough attention to go out without training wheels yet.
For the time being we’ll ignore the fact that you’re damn hot when you’re nomming *fap**fap*fap*fap*
OM NOM NOM
Always learn something from expert takedowns on blog posts, but I’m too ADD to follow comment threads.
(In other words, TLDR SUMARY PLS)
I guess I’m old (i’m 41)
I have a hard time reading ervlish.
@#7 I guess the tl;dr version is: Douchebag uses big words and pretends that HIV != AIDS.
I can’t wait to see ERV’s takedown though, and I’m looking forward to learning new things in the process.
@#8 It’s actually called LOLSpeak. To NOM is to eat something tasty, although in this case it will be the retard that ERV is going to “eat,” and we will get great enjoyment out of it (also known as lulz).
You can learn about all things LOLSpeak at http://speaklolspeak.com/
Go forth and educate yourself, and you will better understand ERV.
meh, all the denialists look the same. let’s hear about some cool new HIV papers…or arnie stories…
Go get ’em, Abbie! Just remember to let us hose down the walls and throw down fresh sawdust afterward…can’t have all icky blood lying around or people might think you’re eating raw babies again.
Oh, please NOM. I’ll bring popcorn.
@#13 But…. but… babby has taste and are nutrishus
I vote NOM.
Oh Abbie *can* has noms! Aside from the HIV denial, there is this:
I walk my walk too though. I conquered the common cold. Modern Medicine still hasn’t been able to do that has it? No. It hasn’t. Because it thinks the common cold and the flu are “infectious” LOL!!! Morons.
I note that “genius” didn’t bother to explain how he cured said common cold in the rest of his post.
Thanks. I have trouble enough with english (its the only language I speak), I’m not sure adding an internet-only language to my repertoire is going to be a good use of remaining brain cells.
But thanks for the link. I will use it in the future when translating ervlish.
Delurking briefly to vote…
NOM NOM NOM
can’t have all icky blood lying around or people might think you’re eating raw babies again
Oh come on. Abbie’s now a Mistress of the Evilutionary Dark Arts, which means we know she devours 2 or 3 Christian babies daily!
NOM! NOM! NOM!
I agree, I want to see those posts picked to pieces and please be thorough.
Can I just say I’d love to read The ERV Guide to HIV Denialism in dead tree form?
I can has NOM?
Much as it’s nice to see a good smack down, I could live without any more of his/her excessive verbiage.
Don’t put that in your mouth; you don’t know where it’s been!
Seriously, go for it. :3
Looks like he is being attacked fairly well on additions to the old post (linked in first line of this post). Several posts already with today’s date (9 June). Go get him folks!
Caseytits at it again! http://www.evolutionnews.org/2009/06/colorshifting_cuttlefish_inspi.html
Please nom it like it’s hot!
Although ERV could nom the guy with more elan than me, I’d like to highlight a few juicy tit-bits even I can see are tard.
First is their canard that ‘hiv doesn’t kill t cells’. This is old and long dead. See http://aidsmyth.blogspot.com for a recent takedown.
Second, they talk about textbooks but don’t say which. That’s not an oversight as they do cite other works, that turn out to be just as denialist.
Lastly, they ask ‘what is the purpose of a virus that kills it’s host?’ and then claim not to be religious.
Nom. Yuck! Blech!
Nom on. I’m sure you can do better than referencing a paper from 1999 and an edition of a virology text from *snrk* 1994. It’s awesome when your ~*theory*~ sucks so hard you can’t even cherry pick from the current decade.
Sorry ERV another vote for NOMming. I realise it must be tiresome to do but it is so much fun for us
You show me a disease causing virus and I’ll show you a compete misunderstanding of molecular biology.
This quote is enough reason why that crap needs to be smacked down hard.
NOM as thoroughly as possible plz.
Do want nommage!
Read his post.
Waste of air.
Let the nomming commence!
Abbie, if you feel like it and you have time, chomp the idiot until there is nothing left but the blood.
“If viruses caused disease, how did our population make it so long without any viral epidemics? All known epidemics are of bacterial origin….”
WTF. A 1918 historical revisionist? Seriously?
Make him cry.
Drink his milkshake. Drink it up!
NOM… but only if you can get William Wallace to come here and cry about it…
and only after you make Caseytits cry once again at his party.
J-Dog, you’d cry to if it happened to you…
And while I’m here let me just join the chorus calling for NOM NOM NOM.
This quote is enough reason why that crap needs to be smacked down hard.
The western blotting quote was enough to make me puke.
Nom him alive!! You know like those wasps that paralyze spiders or catapillars so their larvae can feed on the still living unfortunate prey? Yeah, like that!
Yes, but they aren’t raw.
Much less nutritious that way.
Nom away at the wall of text.
I vote breaking this guy down. It’s always entertaining, and I learn from it.
NOM-NOM-NOM this arrogant jackass until you refuse dessert and need a doggie bag.
And I’ve also conquered the common cold. All you need is…
Whisky, weed, Tylenol Cough and Cold, and a full day off to laze around and watch “Mr. Show With Bob and David” on DVD.
The Chimp’s Raging Id-
“Oh come on. Abbie’s now a Mistress of the Evilutionary Dark Arts, which means we know she devours 2 or 3 Christian babies daily!”
Only when she’s doing an important experiment, and wants to appease the devil-gods of science.
As for the denier- I say NOM!
Nom – like the fist of an angry god.
I support the NOMination. Even I can nibble several bits out of him, but I hope to learn more.
Oh, man…in his latest comment, “CommonSense” outlines his plan to inject himself with HIV+ blood and take tests at 3, 6 and 12 months, posting the results on YouTube. I mean, what the hell!? This stunt could be an elaborate bluff, or else the guy is genuinely that crazy. I hope it’s the former – I’d rather someone be a liar or a troll than self-deluded enough to infect themselves with a deadly, incurable disease.
Well, the problem would be self-correcting, but I’d be really worried about anyone he was in contact with.
De-lurking to humbly request a brutal NOM as well. It should be most amusing!
Well, it probably won’t penetrate the thick concrete bunker of wilful ignorance surrounding the flaccid hollow sac that was the brain of the ironically named “Common Sense”…
…but the rest of us might learn nice things. You can never have too much debunkery – is liek ice creem. NOMNOM.
Take him/her down point by point…. then if by some chance CommonNonSense missed a common denier talking point, take that down too as an addendum. Edit as necessary as future dumbasses hop on the denier wagon. That way we’ll all have this nice document we can point any future denier trolls as thay come through (with, of course a link to the secret decoder ring that is speaklolspeak to help them self educate, it they know how to do that)
By the way “CommonSense”, if you’re reading this… you do do know that “common” is an insult, right. And that science makes it’s progress most firmly by showing where common sense is wrong? It’s like an application of that saying about how it isn’t what you don’t know that holds you back as much as it is those things you know for sure that just aren’t so.
Nom him, please.
When you do grind “commonsense” (neither common, nor sense) between your pearly whites, are you going to do it in a new post or in the thread where he has left his droppings?
PS That’s a vote for NOM!
OM NOM NOM NOM!!!
To switch from lolspeak, I’ll invoke some DemolitionMan-ease
please MDK the comment?
NOMing won’t stop him, but if you would like to use it as a teaching opportunity, that’s very worthwhile.
Oh, please nom. Please please please…
NOM NOM NOM NOM….
I find the witty evisceration of fools to be HIGHLY entertaining… Please entertain me!!!
Azkyroth | June 10, 2009 5:06 AM
Agreed. If the fool wants to put him/herself forward for a Darwin Award, that’s CommonSense’s choice, but I’d be concerned s/he’d infect some poor, unsuspecting individuals along the way.
Rip the denialist fool a new one, Abbie!
CommonSense (???) claims that his fasting glucose is less than 60 mg/dl. Fasting range is 70-99/ On the old thread I just suggested that his hypoglycemia may have influenced his brain cells, thus accounting for his crazy views on HIV and nutrition. As a Type 2 diabetic, I am very aware when my blood sugar falls as low as 60!
Like Peter Duesberg, I suspect that numbnuts commonsense will find all sorts of excuses not to inject himself. When the time comes to make it or get off the pot, they are as stationary as statues.
OT, but related to your work.
There’s a nutjob creationist who is on the Amazon science boards, who routinely mentions Behe and Dr. Ussery, so much so I’m wondering whether this guy is stalking the fine professor.
His most recent screed is here:
The choice quote?
“Remember that Michael Behe has devasted every other Darwinist from Ken Miller to Jerry Coyne to Ian Musgrave etal. See his blog — serial devastation of all the leaders of Darwinism save David Ussery. David had been mute so his name just never came up until I challenged forum members to contact him. On orders from his wife he is not permitted to write to me. So it took a lot of prodding to forum Darwinists but one took the bait and contacted David.”
Behe devastated you, erv? I saw his response and saw nothing even remotely refuting your points. Go figure.
Chris– My favorite part about that whole thing– FAVORITE– is that Behe et al blatantly refuse to acknowledge that *I* wrote that article. Behe would only address Ian. This guy refers to Ian.
Love Ian, but *I* wrote that critique, and they just cant handle bein whooped by a girl.
Yes, I know. I pointed this out to the nutjob before. I even indicated that Behe starts off saying he won’t critique your attitude after he does just that.
If he doesn’t think it’s good to talk about how mean you sounded, why didn’t he just bother to delete the paragraph? He wasn’t live blogging it.
Such children, the lot of them. And yes, they’re afraid of girls beating them. Keep it up and make them suck their thumbs.
I can’t read anymore of that. It’s making me ill. I followed the link to his medical authority and wound up learning a lot about psychic vampires.
10 to 1 he has a live journal with shirtless pictures of himself looking serious and wielding a katana in his mom’s garage.
Nom away, it will be another valuable and enjoyable learning opportunity for many of us. However, I absolutely refuse to read any more of his garbage as I could feel random brain cells popping out of existence in protest while reading the stoopid.
Azkyroth and The Chimp’s Raving ID, agreed. For anyone who believes that you can’t get HIV/AIDS from an injection of infected blood would have no qualms about sharing bodily fluids with others. Of course, that does presuppose that he could find someone as stoopid as him to share them with in the first place.
NOM! NOM! NOM!
Nom it to hell.
No viral epidemics, ever? What does he think of smallpox, or influenza, or like, pretty much a lot of viral diseases…
If you run ouot of other things to NOM, can you also have a look at some weirdjob I’ve been anti-trolling at TheScientist.com Go to page 2, and it becomes a long slippery slope of stupid as I try to understand how GatotICN000316476 manages to rationalise that sunlight causes HIV, sticking someone in radiation-free room will cure almsot anything, and tehre is no such thing as an STD because you can’t test that hypotehsis (It’s more strange as elsewhere on those forums he’s denied the HIV-AIDS link)
“Prometheus: 10 to 1 he has a live journal with shirtless pictures of himself looking serious and wielding a katana in his mom’s garage.”
DO EET. The way this guy just utterly fails to answer any of the objections posed to him means he is deserving of a full-on ERV smackdown.
Nom, please. The world will be a better place for it.
One of the unfortunate side effects of the way we don’t _die of smallpox_ anymore is that people don’t seem to realise how lucky they are to be _not dying of smallpox_, and this one is pretending it never existed.
