c0nc0rdance + HIV vs Creationists

Though ERVs are my favorite tool vs Creationists, HIV is a fantastic choice as well.

I mean, has anyone seen hide or hair of Behe since 2007?

Poor guy.

Alas, there are still Creationists out there, so to address some of their 'concerns', c0nc0rdance made a couple of vids using his favorite HIV protein, Vpr:

This is a repost from the old ERV. A retrotransposed ERV :P I dont trust them staying up at Blogger, and the SEED overlords are letting me have 4 reposts a week, so Im gonna take advantage of that! I am going to try to add more comments to these posts for the old readers-- Think of these as '…
What is it about ERVs that makes kooks cling desperately to them, like little 'gag-pol-env' life-rafts, as the kooks FAILboats sink into even further obscurity? I think the general populations ignorance about ERVs is what kooks find so attractive. Kooks, like Creationists, can say any damn thing…
Despite the wackaloon letters PZ gets, Im being serious! It really is nice! I encourage everyone to leave questions in the comments or send me emails if they want to know more about a topic, and I am just as happy to oblige a evilutionist as a Creationist. Especially when theyre nice about it! So…
So Ive been over the basics of ERVs (Intro, gag, pol, env), but Im still missing a 'basic' aspect of ERVs, even though I talk about them all the friggen time on this blag: LTRs. In exogenous retroviruses, LTRs act as promoters. Genome has all the genes (gag, pol, env), LTRs make sure they, and…

Seeing OFNF getting PWNED seriously never gets old, especially when it's on microbiology stuff. lol

Thanks for the post, Abbie!

Not surprisingly, I haven't heard a peep from OnceForgivenNowFree. It was still worth it to stir up the HIV-AIDS denialists and evolution denialists in one video, though.

Forgive me for my horrible grammar and spelling and just lack of knowledge on anything. The grammar and spelling is due to dyslexia the lack of knowledge is laziness. Anywhere here goes just a few weeks ago I hear a lab in a philly university actually came up with a bacteria or something that targets the hiv or aids virus cells and leaves the other cells alone, is this correct or close to correct. It was a legit news channel but seem not to be able to find anything on it. I am not personally affected with hiv/aids but my brother has been full blown aids since the early 90's and pretty much at the end at this point.

Al Franken would say that he has a one word argument winner for creationists- "FOSSILS". Interestingly, defunct retroviruses in our genomes are molecular fossils.
