1. John A. Davison - December 2, 2011


I call your attention to the above blog where I am receiving the response I have come to expect wherever our science is offered. Join in, friend or foe alike. Like Franklin Delano Roosevelt –

“I’m an old campaigner and I love a good fight.”

It doesn’t get any better than this!

2. John A. Davison - December 8, 2011

Speaking of Holidays, December 8 celebrates the “Feast of the Immaculate Conception” which has been celebrated for centuries and finally became official Catholic dogma on December 8, 1858. This does not refer to the immaculate conception of Christ but to that of his mother Mary. In other words it supports the Semi-meiotic hypothesis (SMH) which I first proposed in 1984.

While the SMH cannot at present account for the virgin birth of Christ, it should be noted that frogs produced semi-meiotically can be either male or female. In frogs, delayed activation of the egg favors males. Since the semi-meiotic procedure has yet to be tested in mammals, we do not know what the results of that test might reveal. Perhaps some young investigator somewhere can some day screw up the courage to actually perform the necessary experiments to test this new hypothesis for organic change with mammalian material.


After I sent this message to the “big 4 of Darwinian mysticism and Stuart Campbell, Stuart Campbell reminded me that the correct date was 1854 not 1858. mea culpa. In that same email, he also concluded that Jesus was a frog! I have since reminded him that if he does not formally apologize to John A. Davison, Terry Trainor, Martin Cadra and Peter Borger, that I will expose his behavior to his immediate superior. Dr. Andre Kessler with the recommendation that he be dropped from the rolls of Ph.D. candidates at Cornell.

3. John A. Davison - December 10, 2011

Stuart Campbell has emailed me that he has no intention of apologizing to anyone about anything he has said. Accordingly, he will remain my only tangible contact with the Darwinista.

4. John A. Davison - December 10, 2011

I just sent the following email to the email addresses provided by Stuart Campbell, Andre Kessler, Pee Zee Myers, Richard Dawkins, Wesley Elsberry and Larry Moran with copies to others,


This message is to establish for the record that the semi-meiotic mechanism (SMH) which I first presented in 1984 is the ONLY CONCEIVABLE means by which true species have ever appeared. Furthermore, if evolution ever resumes, which I do not anticipate, it will be the means by which all true speciation will take place. With this assertion I fulfill the prophesies of Richard B. Goldschmidt –

“The decisive step in evolution, the first step toward macroevolution, the step from one species to another, requires another evolutionary method than that of sheer accumulation of micromutations.”
The Material Basis of Evolution, page 183. (1940)

and Pierre Grasse –

“Any system which purports to account for evolution must evoke a mechanism not mutational and aleatory.”
Evolution of Living Organisms, page 245. (1977)

You are all invited to respond to this public challenge. Your continued silence is no longer acceptable and will be interpreted as incompetence.

5. John A. Davison - December 11, 2011

The failure of the Darwinista to respond to my challenges reminds me of the movie “The Silence of the Lambs.” Their silence is reminiscent of Winston Churchill’s characterization of Neville Chamberlain –

“A sheep in sheep’s clothing.”

Einstein also used “sheep” to identify those who choose to join with others rather than think for themselves –

“In order to form an immaculate member of a flock of sheep one must, above all, be a sheep.”
Ideas and Opinions, page 28.

So there we have it ladies and gentlemen. We have silenced the Darwinista and every one of their leaders. And we did it with real science.

It doesn’t get any better thn this.

6. John A. Davison - December 12, 2011

Let me proclaim our victory over the atheist inspired Darwinian mystics by employing a quotation from Der Alte, Konrad Adenauer.

“Only the stupidest calves choose their own butcher.”

It was the stupid Darwinians who chose John A. Davison and his sources as their butcher and John A. Davison with his sources is delighted to fulfill that role.

It doesn’t get any better than this.

7. John A. Davison - December 13, 2011

Now even Stuart “potty mouthed” Campbell is silent and has joined with the “Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism,” unable to respond to our total rejection of the Darwinian paradigm. Not only have we destroyed their sacred cow but we have replaced it with a brand new explanation for speciation, a proposition in complete accord with everything we have learned from the fossil record and the experimental laboratory.

As far as I can determine, the stony silence with which we have been received means that John A. Davison is the only human being on this planet who fully realizes what we have achieved.

“Secret guilt by silence is betrayed.”
John Dryden

P.S. Above message sent to the contact addressses provided by Stuart Campbell, Paul Zachary Myers, Laurence A. Moran, Clinton Richard Dawkins and Wesley Royce Elsberry.

8. John A. Davison - December 14, 2011

Stuart Campbell continues to insult us, most recently calling me “John Quixote.” The most revealing feature of his vitriol resides in his failure to copy his insults to anyone else.The simple truth is that Stuart Campbell is the only Darwinian stupid enough openly to insult us at the present time. While I no longer privately communicate with Stuart Campbell, I will continue to remind my viewers of the cowardly status that the Darwinista have always represented when they are openly challenged by real scientists. Campbell hasn’t an ally in the entire Darwinian world. That has become obvious to everyone except Stuart Campbell.

“Only the stupidest calves choose their own butcher.”
Konrad Adenauer

I am delighted to butcher every aspect of the Darwinian fantasy just as every one of my sources each did long before me.

This message emailed to the usual recipients plus Stuart Campbell.

9. John A. Davison - December 17, 2011

It is apparent that Clinton Richard Dawkins is the current leading exponent of the Darwinian paradigm just as Ernst Mayr was before him. It is my opinion that they both have been very effective in delaying progress in evolutionary science. James Lovelock had the following to say about those who achieve such prominence in their fields –

“We have a saying in science: The eminence of a scientist is measured by the length of time he holds up progress.”
The Vanishing Face Of Gaia, page 199.

This message emailed to the “Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism” plus Stuart Campbell.

10. John A. Davison - December 19, 2011

That is not true. All attempts to create new species through selection have failed . Furthermore, Darwinian evolution is not even an an hypothesis. Hypotheses by definition are testable. There is nothing testable about a “random walk.” Darwinism is an armchair fantasy which Darwin dreamed up after he returned from the Voyage of the Beagle and nothing more. As I explained in my essay – “Natural Selection: The Achilles Heel of Darwinism,” NS PREVENTS evolution and so does sexual reproduction.

I DO NOT deny evolution and neither did any of my sources. It is only the MECHANISM by which it took place (past tense) that we have questioned. Not one of my predecessors, who all challenged Darwinism, ever denied evolution either. I have synthesized their many findings into a new hypothesis for evolutionary change. I will stand by it until it is proven to be without merit. There is a reason the Darwinians do not respond to my many challenges. They are AFRAID to open that “Pandora’s Box of Troubles.” They continue their tradition of assuming that Darwinism is settled science. They are blinded by their atheism. Their primary spokesperson, Richard Dawkins, has NEVER contributed ANYTHING of significance to our knowledge of the great mystery of organic change. Like Darwin, Dawkins also lives in a fantasy world entirely of his own manufacture. Darwinians are not scientists and never have been. Scientists defend their convictions and respond to their critics.

I understand that you don’t like my position but I can assure you that I will not change my position until I am forced to do so by real data. EVERYTHING we have proposed is in full accord with the testimony of the fossil record and the experimental laboratory.

I will leave you with the words of Boris Ephrussi who, among many other accomplishments, proved that mitochondria are self replicating organelles –

“An hypothesis does not cease being an hypothesis when a lot of people believe it.”

As I said before, Darwin’s armchair fantasy doesn’t even qualify as an hypothesis. It is a mere notion.

11. John A. Davison - February 29, 2012

Stuart Campbell continues his abuse and most recently is begging me to organize a “conference” where he can present his response to OUR science. Sorry Stuart but I am no longer active in the field of evolutionary science. You will have to find someone else to treat with contempt. My website, my book and my new essays nearly (but not yet) complete my contributions to the twin mysteries of ontogeny and phylogeny.

Incidentally, the reason I put as much of OUR science (as I was allowed) into a book is because it is quite possible that that some screwball might just destroy the internet or it might just self destruct. In that case hard copy will be all that is left and libraries will once again become the only repositories for Truth and Knowledge. In the meantime, I suggest that others also photocopy my new essays so that I won’t be the ony person in the world who takes OUR science seriously enough to preserve it.

12. John A. Davison - February 29, 2012

Here is the latest from Stuart Campbell. He now claims that he is not a Darwinian and he is not a selectionist either. It makes one wonder just what Campbell really is.

If you are listening Stuart, do yourself a favor and stop making a damn fool of yourself. I’m though trying to convince anyone of OUR science so everything you say has no effect whatsoever. I will continue however to reproduce your mindless, pathetic ravings for so long as you are stupid enough to include me in your email correspondence.

I believe that you are terrified of OUR science to the point that you can no longer communicate rationally with anyone. You lash out at anyone who challenges you in any way. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if you were to have a nervous breakdown if you haven’t already had one.

13. John A. Davison - March 2, 2012

Campbell now wants me to debate Will Provine. I have been trying to reach Provine but not to debate him. There is nothing to debate. We scientists do not debate – we discover! I will let everyone know what Provine has to say as I have already reminded him of Stuart Campbell’s posture with respect to evolutionary science.

Since I have heard nothing further from Professor Provine, I assume that he also chooses to pretend, like Professors Moran, Dawkins, Myers and Elsberry (The Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism), that WE do not exist. The Big 4 has become the Big 5 plus of course Stuart Campbell. Here is Provine’s email address if anyone else wants to contact him


15. John A. Davison - March 3, 2012

For all within range of my message, I now proclaim formal victory over the forces of the Darwinista that still prevent progress today as they always have for the past 153 years. Here are their names, the most prominent living representatives endorsing Charles Darwin’s Victorian fantasy that organic evolution was intrinsic in the nature of non-living mattter; that it required no Plan; that it proceeded automatically from “Natural Selection” that mythical elixir which has never been demonstrated to have any creative function whatsoever.

So here they are. Since there is little to distinguish them from one another, I present them in alphabetical order, Clinton Richard Dawkins, Wesley Royce Elsberry, Laurence A. (Larry) Moran, Paul Zachary (PeeZee) Myers and William Provine.

They are all atheists, including Elsberry, who absurdly claims to be a Methodist Christian but has never been able to answer my question as to what role his Christian God ever played in organic evolution. There is no question that the first and the last of these individuals have had far and away the most influence in keeping Natural Selection, the cornerstone of Darwinism alive. I will concentrate on them relegating the other three to the relatively trivial influence they have through their infantile blogs, populated mostly by pseudonymous blowhards who never address the question of the causes of evolution in any event.

First Dawkins.

There is not a word in his many books that clarifies any apect of the twin mysteries of ontogeny and phylogeny. His books, each more bizarre than its predecessor, reflect a mentality frozen in denial of any alternative to “Evolution according to Dawkins.” Today, now that he no longer represents Oxford University, he concentrates his efforts on the absurd attempt to convert the entire world to Universal Atheism, a goal he shares with Pee Zee Myers. They even promote day camps (Camp Quest) dedicated to that end, reminiscent of the Hilerjugend of Nazi Germany.

Provine is far more dangerous because he still holds a prominent position in Cornell one of our most distinguished institutions. I have great respect for Cornell in every area except that dealing with the central problem of biological science – how we came to be. Provine collaborated with Ernst Mayr, an atheist from Harvard, another great institution whose history has been marred with the same intolerance to any departure from the natural selection model as first presented by Charles Darwin.

Moreover, there is a unifying feature that all five of them share. They steadfastly refuse to recognize OUR existence as among those several who have proven beyond any doubt that selection, natural or artificial has never played a creative role in the history of life on this planet. Quite the contrary, natural selection has played the critical role of delay, a delay which was necessary in order to allow the physical environment the time required to permit reproductive continuity with change, the two inescapable features of any acceptable explanation for organic change.

It is fitting to end my appraisal of the current proponents of Darwin’s pathetic notion, not even an hypothesis, with the words of a real scientist, one who contributed a great deal to our knowledge of the physical world in which we find ourselves.

“We have a saying in science: The eminence of a scientist is measured by the length of time he holds up progress.”
James Lovelock, The Vanishing Face Of Gaia, page 199.

16. John A. Davison - March 3, 2012

I challenge the living proponents of the Darwinian thesis to provide the name of a single great scientist of the past who was willing to make atheism the sine qua non of his scientific endeavors. Today, atheism has come to dominate our institutions of higher learning as never before in our history. That dominance sounds the death knell to Western civilization founded as it was on the Judeo-Christian ethic whch grew from Greek science and flourished for nearly two thousand years.

“Ask not for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for atheist inspired Darwinian mysticism.”

17. John A. Davison - March 4, 2012

Stuart Campbell remains the only Darwinian (natural selectionist) on the planet who comunicates with me. As he always has, he misinterprets everything I stand for and does so with his typical arrogant, insulting manner. His many insulting emails are shared with not a single ally, although he sometimes claims to have “undisclosed recipients.” Accordingly, I forward his nasty words to what has become the Big 5 of Darwinian mysticism with the addition of William Provine to that list. Let me add that as far as I can tell there is not a Darwinian on this planet that can properly claim the title of scientist. Scientists test their hypotheses and discard them immediately when they fail to be found valid The atheist Darwinians’ congenital predispositions render them unfit to claim the cherished title of scientist. They are, without exceptions “prescribed,” “born to lose” losers

18. John A. Davison - March 5, 2012

Here is my message for the “Big Five of Darwinian mysticism,” arranged conveniently in alphabetical order –


or, for any other “natural selectionist” who is so far out of touch with reality as to give credence to any feature of Darwin’s childish suggestion.

You pathetic creatures don’t even qualify as agnostics because you know with certainty that the animate world has arisen and evolved without a Plan, without Planners, without any forces other than the nature of non-living matter to automatically self-assemble into one or more metabolizing, reproducing, mutating, evolving stem organisms from which all of the organisms that have existed over millions of years have arisen, disappeared and continue to disappear to this very day.

And you expect to be regarded as scientists? Not by this investigator, not in a million years.

Th above message was sent to the contact email addresses provided by the “Big Five of Darwinian Mysticism” plus their only vocal supporter – Stuart Campbell. As expected, no response from any quarter, not even Stuart Campbell. He is too busy carrying on an embarrassing exchange (for him) with my friends Peter Borger and Martin Cadra. As usual he copies his drivel to not a single ally, apparently content to make a perfect fool of himself in the eyes of his “presumed” allies and his adversaries alike.

I am not participating in any way with Campbell’s stupid harangues as I am too busy demonstrating beyond any doubt that the the major representitaves of the Darwinian hoax have been thoroughly exposed to be just as fraudulent as was Darwin himself. Those feckless frauds continue to pretend that natural selection is the sole means by which evolution has taken place.

It is hard to believe isn’t it?

As for my science and that of those on which it securely rests, I stand resolute and defiant. WE will conquer the forces of evil and ideological ignorance that have always obscured the great mystery of our origins.

19. John A. Davison - March 6, 2012

Stuart Campbell contimues to harass me and my friends Martin Cadra and Peter Borger. I responded to him in the following email which was shared between all four of us with copies to others as well.

Stuart Campbell is a hopeless case. His innate atheism blinds him to an enormous literature which he could read but could never comprehend because it can never be reconciled with his atheist mindset. The polarization that has always existed concerning our origins has been clouded by congenital barriers which very few of us have been able to overcome. I know all about it because I am one of those few. It is a very painful experience to suddenly realize that there is no place in science for a personal God. Once that realization takes hold, the investigator is half way home as a scientist. A large fraction of humankind automatically turn to an atheist explanation for the evolutionary sequence supremely confident that the Darwinian, “natural selection” paradigm must hold the key to our understanding. In reality, they were born with that predisposition which makes it doubly difficult for them to proceed further. That is where Stuart Campbell and every other Darwinian, natural selectionist still languish, apparently for the rest of their lives. On the other extreme are those whose predispositions determine that they will be religious fanatics. Both camps are equally fanatical and equally intolerant, absolutely certain of their position. These predispositions are very real and have been experimentally verified to be so. Einstein, was especially aware of this obstacle and while he never addressed the question of the mechanism of organic evolution, he fully understood why we believe as we do. He summarized his convictions in three important statements with which I fully agree.

From The New Quotable Einstein by Alice Calaprice –

“Our actions should be based on the ever-present awareness that human beings in their thinking, feeling, and acting are not free but are just as causally bound as the stars in their motion.” page 200.

“Then there are the fanatical atheists whose intolerance is the same as that of the religious fanatics, and it springs from the same source…They are creatures who cannot hear the music of the spheres.” page 204

“The main source of the present-day conflicts between the spheres of religion and science lies in the concept of a personal God.” page 203

It is only after one has conquered these barriers that one can properly claim to be a scientist. I am confident that we have achieved that position and have proposed an explanation for organic change free of endogenous bias, one that will survive to become the standard explanation for speciation, the cornerstone of any rational explanation for the radiation that we know has taken place within those taxa we recognize to be at the level of Order and below. The mechanism(s) which produced the higher taxa of Class and above cannot be ascertained at the present time.


The above summary of our position will be emailed to the Big Five of Darwinian Mysticism plus of course Stuart Campbell, the only vocal representative of the Darwinian hoax.

20. John A. Davison - March 6, 2012

I have been castigated for abandoning my Catholicism by questioning the Resurrection. Let me say that no one knows what lies beyond our mortal existence, not I, not Richard Dawkins, not a single human being. The life and death of Jesus of Nazareth set a standard for human behavior that can never be matched or even approached. It is of little significance whether Jesus was the son of God or wasn’t. I admire Jesus as I do Mother Teresa or Gandhi or a host of other great personalities of the past many of whom have been sanctified by the Vatican and many who have not.

Our science has made it certain that Homo sapiens is a Primate whose closest living relative is the Chimpanzee. I have offered my explanation for how that separation from a common ancestor probably took place in a series of discrete saltational steps involving approximately twelve species all of whicn are now extinct. That explanation does not require supernatural intervention. What it does require is that our appearance must have been planned.

The claim by William Paley –
“Where there is design there is a designer,”
is, in my opinion, incorrect and without tangible, verifiable evidence.

What Paley should have said was –
“Where there is design there was a designer.”

I hope this clarifies my present position with respect to the great mystery of how we came to be here. I have no illusions however about how it will be received. It will be with the stony silence that any departure from either religious doctrine or Darwinian atheism has always been received.

21. John A. Davison - March 7, 2012

Stuart Campbell

If you think I am going to let you attack my friends as you have attacked me, you are sadly mistaken. That is the only reason I pay any attention to you. You are ethical garbage and the most ignorant student of evolutionary science I have ever had the pleasure of exposing. If you are smart you will shut up before the Cornell administration drops you from their graduate program. Why they haven’t already done so escapes me.

I just sent the above email to Stuart Campbell and Will Provine, with copies to my fiends Terry Trainor, Peter Borger and Martin Cadra

If any of you people have anything to say to or about me, you better be prepared to comment on my convictions that 1. Sexual reproduction cannot produce new species and 2. Speciation is no longer in progress. If you can’t address those realities with tangible examples, remain silent as most of you always have.

Edit added March 10, 2012

Still not a word from the “Big 5 of Darwinian mysticism” not even from Stuart Campbell, their only vocal representative. It’s hard to believe that Campbell has finally thrown in his natural selection towel. It sure took long enough. There may finally be light at the end of the 153 year long Darwinian tunnel of denial.

Hope springs eternal!

24. John A. Davison - March 12, 2012

Check message #542 in which I challenged the Darwinista to respond to my convictions that 1.Sexual reproduction cannot produce new species and 2. Speciation is no longer in progress.

That was on March 8, 2012. Still no response after 4 days, not even from Stuart Campbell. Some Darwinian must have advised him to shut up. I suspect it was William Provine.

Thus the Darwinista continue their despicable, cowardly practice of pretending that they never had credible adversaries.

“There is nothing new under the sun”

It doesn’t get any better than this.

25. John A. Davison - March 12, 2012

I just sent the following email to the contact addresses provided by Pee Zee Myers, William Provine, Richard Dawkins, Larry Moran, Wesley Elsberry and Stuart Campbell.

This is to remind each of you that, by your shared silence, you are continuing a tradition that began with St George Mivart and persists to this very day. You are all a disgrace to science. You will each be remembered as a mere footnote in the Archives of evolutionary science.

“A doctrine which is unable to maintain itself in clear light, but only in the dark, will of necessity lose its effect on mankind with uncalculable harm to human progress.”

John Davidson – see the evolution debate in the Peter Hitchens blog. He writes for a British Sunday Newspaper, and is NOT an atheist. His deceased brother was the famous atheist Christpher Hitchens. Peter Hitchens is not an atheist or evolution believer and he invites infomed debate. They are debating the Galapagos Finches and what defines a species – your area of expertise. And Popper.
