Welcome to my Weblog February 6, 2008

Posted by John A. Davison in general.


I will present my views on a variety of subjects. Chief among them is my Prescribed Evolutionary Hypothesis and my paper published in Rivista di Biologia is now available here for further discussion.

You will notice that I do not use the usual format of constantly introducing new threads. I find that six threads serve to satisfy both my interests and my purposes. This format serves to be a sort of Journal, continuing to record what I hope will be my legacy as a scientist and citizen. Like Frank Sinatra –

“I did it my way.”

By scanning down this page you will find the topics with which I am most concerned. To see what is currently going on, go to Recent Comments which will direct you to which of the six threads are currently active. Enjoy and participate if the spirit moves you! My current policy requires registration which I have found useful in preventing undue harassment and meaningless spam.

I occasionally edit earlier messages to bring them up to date so it is a good idea to review recent messages for information about how they are being received.

I have strong convictions about internet communication so I will present them now. I have no respect for anonymous auhors unless there are sound reasons why they must remain unknown. Those reasons should be verified. All too often anonymity has proven to be license for vitriol and denigration. I further hope this blog can set a standard against which those blogs and forums that must ban their critics can be compared. We all know which blogs they are so I will not embarrass them and their sponsors by naming them. I will not delete any comment unless it is obscene or contributes nothing to the discussion. If I do respond, I will mention the author’s anonymity and ask why that should be necessary. I hope these conditions do not inhibit a free exchange of ideas which is the sole purpose of this weblog.

I have strong opinions on the subject of what has been called “global warming.” I regard the changes that are occurring on this planet as threatening our very existence as both a species and a civilization. I look forward to the opportunity to defend and promote that position.

I am also a great admirer of Albert Einstein and subscribe without reservation to his determinism –

“Everything is determined…by forces over which we have no control.”

As far as I can determine we are all victims in a determined, “prescribed” cosmic scenario. Some of us have been luckier than others.

I hope this brief introduction will serve to set the stage for what to expect from me on – “John A. Davison’s Weblog,” now renamed – “The Proceedings of the Natural History Society of South Burlington (Vermont).”

Please note that I have renamed this weblog –

“The Proceedings of the Natural History Society of South Burlington (Vermont).

It is based on the title of the journal in which Gregor Mendel published his 1868 paper –

“The Proceedings of the Natural History Society of Brunn (Austria).

Mendel realized that his paper would not be accepted in the leading botanical journals of his day so he wisely chose to publish it in a journal for which he was an editor. I am doing the same thing that Mendel did. From now on I too will publish my papers in the journal for which I am an editor. I am sick of having my science and that of my distinguished predecessors rejected out of hand by Editors and their hand picked Editorial boards all still swimming in the same atheist tank with Richard Dawkins, Paul Zachary Myers and every other of the thousands of Darwinian zealots with which evolutionary science is still so very impaired. Darwinism was dead on arrival in 1859. Only Darwinian mystics still imagine it wasn’t.

The following summary may help explain why I have this blog as it describes my terminal history at the University of Vermont. I resigned in December 2000 to continue my interest in the great mystery of organic evolution free of the atheist inspired Darwinian bias still is so prevalent in the halls of academe, especially here in the United States and Great Britain. This essay was presented on my old University webpage prior to my resignation. That webpage was subsequently frozen by the University Administration.


John A. Davison, Ph.D.
Department of Biology

In 1984 I published the first of a series of papers offering
a new hypothesis of organic evolution: “Semi-meiosis as an
Evolutionary Mechanism” appeared in the Journal of Theoretical
Biology. 1984 also happens to be the title of George Orwell’s
novel, the significance of which will soon become evident.

I have always enjoyed teaching Introductory Biology and that
experience has been instrumental in causing me to question the
neo-Darwinian view of the evolutionary process. After leaving the
staff of Biology 1 and 2, I introduced a new course designed expressly
for non-science majors: Zoology 8 (The Animal World). This course
proved to be popular and enjoyed enrollments of around 100 students.
The last two lectures were concerned with the mechanism of evolution,
and in those lectures I introduced the semi-meiotic hypothesis and
contrasted it with the neo-Darwinian view.

Sometime in the fall of 1991 the chairman called a secret meeting of
the tenured faculty at which he introduced a petition which served to
eliminate Zoology 8 from the departmental offerings. He then exited
the room leaving a majority of the faculty to sign the petition.
I knew nothing of this until the newspaper appeared and Zoology 8 was
missing. I was unable to have the course reinstated. As the course
was outside the departmental curriculum, this action was a clear
violation of not only my academic freedom but also that of those
students who had chosen to study with me.

After the chairman left the university, he was succeeded by
a member of the department who was a signatory to the Zoology 8
petition. At that time my salary became fixed and it has remained
so ever since. The new chair is also an Associate Dean of the
College of Arts and Sciences, a precedent which I regard as dangerous.
The chair also arbitrarily relieved me of my two advanced courses,
Biology 202 (Quantitative Biology) and Biology 255 (Comparative
Reproductive Biology). These courses were electives which had been
approved by the department and the Graduate College. I was able with
some difficulty to get these courses reinstated only to discover that
Biology 202 had been deleted from the catalog, resulting in an
enrollment of 3 in contrast to 30 the previous year. The chair
also capped the enrollment of Biology 255, an action I was able
to reverse by informing the registrar. The chair refused to take
responsibility for these actions. The chair introduced the hitherto
unknown practice of “peer review”, in which a colleague enters the
classroom unannounced and later reports his impressions to the chair.
The peer the chair chose to review me was a signatory of the Zoology 8
petition. You can imagine the rest! The chair also demanded of all
faculty that they surrender to her on two weeks’ notice copies of
course syllabi and examinations. I am happy to report that I refused
to comply. By now I hope you will have noted the identity of these
policies with those of the dystopian government of Orwell’s 1984:
the Thought Police, Big Brother is watching you, etc.

In October 1997 a new president was inaugurated at the University
of Vermont. Long before her arrival on campus I informed her of
all of the foregoing and more, all of which was fully documented.
I was confident that these policies would cease. I never received
any acknowledgement of my correspondence thus qualifying as
an Orwellian unperson.

I warned the new president that if I should receive a zero raise
for the fourth consecutive year, I would do everything in my power
to expose the policies of this administration to the intellectual
world. That unfortunately has now become necessary, and constitutes
the sole motivation for this memorandum. What we are witnessing here
is the enormous influence monolithic neo-Darwinism can have in at
least one state university.

Orthodoxy means not thinking — not needing
to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.

— George Orwell, 1984

May 25, 2000

We are now well into the new millennium and my salary remains frozen
at the 1995 level. The department launched an inquiry (the Thought
Police) into what was being taught concerning the origin of life.
I happily supplied the pertinent material from my most recent effort,
An Evolutionary Manifesto: A New Hypothesis for Organic Change.
No action has as yet been taken but based on my experience, I must
anticipate the worst. My chairperson, Judith Van Houten, has denied
me the services of the departmental webmaster. Luckily, I was able
to find other help for the recent revision of the Manifesto. She
also felt it necessary to cancel my course code for the copy machine.
I registered a complaint and that has now been rectified.

Being by nature curious, I am interested in the reasons for this
special treatment. The following must be considered speculative
as I can only base my interpretations on my experience here at the
University of Vermont. It seems that chairpersons here are given
unbridled authority to deal with their faculty as they choose.
In Van Houten’s case she is also an Associate Dean in the College
of Arts and Sciences so she is in effect her own immediate superior!
This raises a serious question as to the function of the academic
hierarchy of Chair, Dean, Provost, President, the Board of Trustees
and the Governor who is ex officio a member of that board. Is there
really any need for this bureaucracy to exist? What is its function?

The issue resolves into a failure to understand what university life
is supposed to be all about. A university should foster freedom of
thought and make life as pleasant as possible for the faculty, the
students and the community it serves. The University of Vermont has
failed to implement those ideals. Quite the contrary, it has chosen
to treat its faculty as if they were employees. I am reminded of the
following anecdote. A few years before running for the presidency of
the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower was appointed president
of Columbia University. In his opening speech to the faculty
he addressed them as “the employees of Columbia University”.
A member of the faculty rose and interrupted him with the following:
“Mr. Eisenhower, we are not the employees of Columbia University.
We are Columbia University.”

Of course, to be perfectly objective about this I really cannot
place all the blame on Van Houten. It may well be that others in
the bureaucracy are responsible for the intolerance that has come to
prevail here. I can only say that, in my personal experience, it is
of relatively recent origin. In any event, if there really is some
sort of chain of command (I see no evidence that there is) then the
responsibility rests squarely on the shoulders of each member of that
chain as follows: Joan Smith, Dean of the College of Arts and
Sciences; Geoffrey Gamble, Provost; Judith Ramaley, President; the
Board of Trustees; and Howard Dean, Governor of the State of Vermont.

It is painful for me to have to report that orthodoxy still reigns
supreme here at the University of Vermont. The people of this great
state deserve better from their educational servants.

John A. Davison

Today, a decade later, December 20, 2010, Joan Smith is no longer with us, Judith Van Houten is no longer Chair of the Department of Biology, the Provost, Geoffrey Gamble, resigned the same day I did to become President of Montana State University, Howard Dean is no longer Governor, Judith Ramaley has gone elsewhere but the University of Vermont remains, like most institutions of higher learning, what it has always been, intolerant to any departure from orthodoxy.

As you can see PZ POLICE has used subterfuge to invade this weblog. I am delighted to allow his spiel to remain as a glorious reminder to all rational minds of how far out of touch with reality the “Darwinista” and their cowardly “minions” like PZ POLICE really are. Our adversaries, terrified to speak themselves, send the dregs of society to represent their failed philosophy.

Give careful attention to his drivel and draw you own conclusions as to the state of the Darwinian hoax in current evolutionary science. Why would such a tactic ever be necessary? What could it possibly achieve? Why do they allow it to happen? Can’t they control their “subjects?”

So PZ POLICE, rest assured, I wouldn’t dream of deleting your infantile protestations. They are music to my ancient ears.

However, I recommend that you be content with this single message if you really want it to remain here. Congratulations on performing in perfect accord with what we have always expected from those who are terrified of our science.

I will email this message to your heroes, Paul Zachary Myers, Wesley Royce Elsberry, Laurence A, “larry” Moran and to the most pathetic of all the “Darwinista,” Clinton Richard Dawkins, who has lived in his own private fantasy world his entire adult life.

2. John A. Davison - August 4, 2011

Incidentally, if there are others that must use chicanery to get their messages heard here, feel free to demonstrate your character by ignoring my suggestion that you must provide evidence that you have purchased and read my book before you can legitimately speak here. I am used to being treated with contempt by my many adversaries. Why I might even let your message remain too. Then again, I might not!

“Nothing ventured, nothing gained.”

3. John A. Davison - August 9, 2011

Today is a first for this blog. It is now 11:00 AM EST and not a single visitor has yet arrived. I imagine this reflects the reception that Gregor Mendel probably enjoyed when he too presented a new science we now know as Genetics. It is no accident that I named this blog after the journal in which Mendel published his brilliant researches.

“Meine Zeit wird schon kommen!”
Gregor Mendel

Our time will surely come as well!

It doesn’t get any better than this.

P.S. This message emailed to the targets of our contempt, “The Big 4” of Darwinian mysticism.

4. John A. Davison - August 14, 2011

On August 12 and 13 this blog had 8 visitors each day, fully vindicating what I predicted in the Afterword of my book. I, as with all my sources before me, continue to be ignored by the ruling, Darwinian, atheist inspired establishment and the Christian Fundamentalists as well. These factions are so dedicated to the destruction of one another, that it has never occurred to either that neither has ever had a leg to stand on.

There has never been a role for religion in any aspect of the scientific process nor has there ever been a place for the professed atheist.

Only fools would deliberately hinder themselves with such absurd premises. Yet that is exactly what has happened over the course of the last century and a half.

Twenty-seven years ago in 1984 I published an alternative to the Darwinian paradigm in the Journal of Theoretical Biology, at that time a highly respected journal genuinely interested in such questions as the mechanism by which organic evolution took place. That is no longer true and hasn’t been since 1985 when the Journal acquired a new Editor who was a devout Darwinian. With his ascension, any serious challenge to the Darwinian myth became impossible and that remains so to this very day.

I will in the near future fully document this unfortunate turn of events, identifying the participants by name. The only reason I am not doing it now is because I await verification from the University of Vermont Library research staff of certain key dates and Editorial changes.

I am sure my many readers are aware by now that I fully document every thing I present here, always have and always will, so you will just have to wait for the details. But I can assure all concerned that it will be well worth waiting for.

In the meantime, I am content to be treated with contempt by the likes of Paul Zachary Myers, Wesley Royce Elsberry, Mark Chu-Carroll, Bob O’Hara and a handful of others stupid enough to engage in such tactics. Clinton Richard Dawkins remains above the fray as always, confident of his position as now the elder statesman representing the supremacy of the Darwinian paradigm. I imagine Dawkins doesn’t even know who we are. His insatiable ego won’t permit it.

Gregor Mendel was also ignored and even treated with a degree of contempt by Karl Nageli, then the Tsar of European Botany. That is what prompted Mendel to publish his work in a journal for which he was an Editor –

“The Proceedings of the Natural History Society of Brunn (Austria).”

Just as Mendel created the science of Genetics, so we replaced the Darwinian hoax with a real hypothesis compatible with everything we now know from the fossil record and the experimental laboratory. Mendel’s great achievement was ignored for 34 years (1866-1900). Ours has only been ignored for 27 years. Mendel died long before his work was recognized and we expect the same.

We are proud to receive the same treatment as a great scientist of the past, a humble Augustinian monk named Gregor Mendel.

As for our many adversaries, James Lovelock, in his book “The Vanishing Face of Gaia,” reminded us that –

“The eminence of a scientist is measured by the length of time he holds up progress.”
page 199

P.S. This message emailed to the “Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism,” Paul Zachary Myers, Wesley Royce Elsberry, Clinton Richard Dawkins and Laurence A. “larry” Moran.

I also reproduced it on “brainstorms” forum on the following link –

This message was further edited and enlarged.

5. John A. Davison - September 3, 2011

I am once again down to a dozen or so visitors per day. The more I attack and expose Darwinian mythology, the fewer visitors I attract, a text book example of negative feed back. Being by nature curious (all real scientists are), I am anxious to explore why this is taking place. I need your help.

Here is what I propose. I now solicit the opinions of others as to why this is happening. Submit your explanations. I will review them. Those I find interesting will be published here on this thread. Perhaps they will spur me to be more effective in presenting our alternative to the Darwinian model, as far as I can determine, a thesis with no validity whatsoever.

Do not miss this opportunity to offer your opinions on why this weblog has such a dismal record dealing effectively with the great mystery of organic evolution. Do not use a phony handle if you expect to be considered. I do not respond to anonymous cowards. This is just about the only website around that has any class and I intend to keep it that way. So screw up your courage if you have any that is!

6. John A. Davison - September 27, 2011

I recently have been plagued by a certain Stuart Campbell who is a Ph.D. student working with Andre Kessler in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Cornell University. He submitted three messages all of which I vetoed because it was apparent that he wanted to debate me. If Mr. Campbell knew anything about me he would know that I have stated that scientists do not debate, they discover. Nothing has ever been resolved through debate. The nature of his messages was such that I suspected he was a Darwinian, natural selectionist and was looking for an opportunity to engage me in a debate over something I had long ago rejected as having any role in creative evolution.

If Mr. Campbell had been familiar with my essays, he would realize that I have joined with Leo Berg in maintaining that the sole role of natural selection was always and still is to preserve the status quo for as long as possiblle. In other words, natural selection is anti-evolutionary. Our position was elaborated in my essay –

“Natural Selection: The Achilles Heel of Darwinism.”

I offered to discuss our differences privately via email, a suggestion which failed miserably, ending with insults on both sides with Campbell claiming I was a “Lysenkoist” and “ill” and I responding in kind as is my tendency when insulted. He also claimed that I felt threatened to which I responded that it was the Darwinians whom we threatened. While Campbell denied being a Darwinian, he recited the standard pablum that natural selection was the engine for creative evolution. It also became apparent that he believes creative evolution is going on today, a position I believe to be without foundation – adaptation yes, evolution no!

What is unique about this episode is that for the first time I have had a known adversary challenge our science. In the past it has always been cowardly phonies like PZPolice and solenadon whose rants I ignore.

I believe that Mr. Campbell’s attempt to debate me indicates a weakness in the Darwinian armor. If our science is so weak, why does he feel compelled to debate it? There is no place for debate in science or even for much discussion. It is unfortunate that yet one more generation has been hoodwinked by the atheist inspired nonsense which lies at the root of the Darwinian paradigm.

We have rejected every aspect of neo-Darwinism and replaced it with a Planned phylogenesis which is now complete with the present biota. The validity of this new thesis will be demonstrated sooner or later and the Darwinian model will disappear just as did the Phlogiston of Chemistry. These are not matters to be decided by debate and majority opinion.

It is unfortunate that the Darwinians still hold sway as they have now for over a century and a half. That is over twice the longevity of Phlogiston. Yet our institutions of higher learning are still producing students unable to question the most ridiculous proposition ever to escape the human imagination.

“If you tell the truth, you can be certain, sooner or later, to be found out.”
Oscar Wilde

I asked for an apology from Campbell which he refused which is the reason I am now recounting this rather unfortunate episode. The citadels of Darwinism like Cornell are still cranking out Darwinian zealots instead of producing students who question dogma and intolerance, the proper role for every true scientist.

Nevertheless, I am confident that Mr. Campbell is young enough to one day be witness to the complete collapse of the Darwinian hoax. I just hope he is wise enough to recognize it for what it has always been, nothing but the product of an overactive imagination.

P.S. This message sent to the “Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism.”

7. John A. Davison - September 29, 2011

Most recently Stuart Campbell has been begging me to stop including him in my emails to the “Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism.” Not a chance. I finally found a Darwinian willing to use his real name when he ridicules our science. I have asked Campbell to get more of his colleagues at Cornell, especially members of its faculty, to do the same, so far with no effect.

The cowardice that the Darwinians have always demonstrated toward their critics reminds me of the comment Harry Truman directed at one of his critics –

“______ is a living miracle with neither brains nor guts.”

P.S. This message emailed to Stuart Campbell and the “Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism.”

8. John A. Davison - October 1, 2011

And so we will go on challenging our professional adversaries and being ignored by everyone including those we once counted as supporters. We conclude that the Darwinian mindset, a purely imaginary construct without a shred of tangible evidence, still dominates evolutionary science as a seventh generation of atheist inspired zealots is still being produced by Cornell, one of our most distinguished institutions. The Darwinian hoax is standard fare throughout the Western World now so more than ever before.

It is not just evolutionary science that suffers from this arrogant Godlessness, this denial of a purposeful, planned world. A majority has lost all respect for itself as indicated by the status of every aspect of our culture. Our music, our literature, our preoccupation with self gratification all reveal a society in decay, a syndrome that has heralded the collapse of every great civilization of the past. It is a consequence of affluence and the absence of what Arnold Toynbee called “the virtues of adversity.” An affluent society is no longer humble. Satisfied with its present status, it loses its moral compass as it indulges itself simply because it now has that opportunity. That is exacty what is happening to Western Civilization at the present time. It is happening right now in Europe and it will take place here as well. Those like Richard Dawkins and Paul Zachary Myers who promote and are a part of this process are in for a rude awakening as their society is collapsing all around them. They now represent the dominant majority and as Einstein claimed –

“A majority of the stupid is guaranteed for all time.”
Ideas and Opinons, page 28.

9. John A. Davison - October 2, 2011

I have finally done it. I have so alienated my audience that yesterday, October 1, 2011, only 5 (five) visits occurred on my weblog. Never before has this minimum ever occurred. It is the purpose of this message to explain to my audience how I managed to achieve such a perfect failure of effective communication.

The short answer is very simple. I did it by telling the truth. I will recount these truths so others can realize what it is that our adversaries are unable to recognize concerning the mystery of organic evolution.

Here are the truths that the Darwinians are terrified even to recognize and dare not respond to.

Truth # 1

Natural selection, the sine qua non of the Darwinian thesis, has always been misunderstood. It has never played a role in creative evolution. On the contrary, it has played the opposite role of preventing evolution from taking place for as long as possible, a strategy which has, with very few exceptions, resulted in the extinction of the flora and fauna of each of the great eras that preceded the present. Of all the several millions of species that once inhabited the earth we estimate that less than .000001% were capable of any further evolutionary change. The number of species capable of producing offspring basically different from themselves steadily declined as higher forms appeared and fewer and fewer new taxonomic categories appeared as a function of geologic time. These are not surmises but are descriptions of what the fossil record actually reveals.

Truth # 2

Creative evolution is no longer in progress. Our challenges to name known true species and their known immediate ancestors have all been met with silence. Today we witness not evolution in progress but only adaptations produced by species no longer capable of producing offspring basically different from themselves. We see fixed species in complete accord with the taxonomy of Linnaeus, based as it is on the assumption that present species are immutable. In short, we see today only the products of a past evolution which is now complete with the present biota, a biota which can only become extinct and is doing so in great numbers without a single demonstrable replacement.

Truth # 3

The only conceivable explanation for what we know has taken place requires that all of organic evolution must have been planned in advance by an unknown number of entities for want of a better word, entities whose presence can no longer be demonstrated but whose past reality cannot be denied.

To borrow a phrase from our founding fathers in their Declaration of Independence –

“We hold these truths to be self evident” and with those words we declare our independence from the intellectual tyranny with which godless Darwinism still dominates evolutionary science.

P.S. This message will be emailed to the “usual suspects,” those who still promote the most ridiculous proposition in the history of human communication.

10. John A. Davison - October 3, 2011

I now predict that the number of visitors to this weblog will undergo a transient daily increase as Darwinian zealots will digest my heresies and then secretly and silently dismiss them as the ravings of a senile fool.

Will anyone call public attention to the three truths I have presented in my previous message? Will any comment be made about them positive or negative? I doubt it very much because Darwinians, like all tyrants, are very insecure and dare not call attention to any deviation from “the one true faith” which unifies them. Nor will the Fundamentalists be anxious to give these truths any credibility because they do not require a living personal God.

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

Shakespeare, the astute student of human nature, gave us his explanations for why we will continue to be shunned and publicly ignored.

“They that stand high have many blasts to shake them.”
“Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.”
“Discretion is the better part of valour.”
“Thus conscience does make cowards of us all.”

P.S. This message also emailed to our adversaries.

11. John A. Davison - October 4, 2011

My friend and proven supporter Terry Trainor is the ONLY one who responded to my request. He responded to my message and sent it to the “Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism” plus Stuart Campbell.

Trainor’s reward was to be attacked by Myers who finished his attack with “F**K OFF.”

Stuart Campbell also responded to Trainor with –

“wow, more meaningless unsupported rhetoric, and now you’ve added an element of random bigotry, nice work! leave me off future emails – in some ways, you’re amusing and all, but in a repetitive, knock knock joke kind of way.”

Notice that these two character assassins made no mention of me and my message but directed all their loathing against Terry Trainor who had simply done as I asked.

Thank you Terry Trainor for showing some gumption and a willingness to be insulted by two low class Darwinian zealots. You are to be congratulated. With their own words they have exposed themselves as intellectual and ethical trash. It is always with ones own words that one reveals himself.

It doesn’t get any better than this.

Samuel Johnson

Why do I waste my precious time like this? It has become very clear that atheist inspired Darwinism continues to dominate evolutionary science as it always has from its inception. Nothing has changed and, as I predicted in my book, nothing will change in the forseeable future.

Our society has become apathetic. We no longer care about the most important of our responsibilities – what is the truth? The truth no longer matters in today’s world, a world in a state of profound ethical and moral degeneration.

We have willingly allowed ourselves to be led by the forces of evil. We are reaping our proper reward in every aspect of our society. Just as America is now being led by its mortal enemy, so evolutionary science is doing the same. These Darwinian mystics are not interested in the truth. If they were they would test their convictions.

I fully expect Barack Hussein Obama to be re-elected for the same reasons that Darwinian mysticism still prevails. Our thoroughly decadent society is doing what other civilizations have always done. They died soon after they abandoned their God or Gods just as ours has.

I have done my level best to raise the awareness of the scientific world to the menace which Godless Darwinism poses. The more vigorous my efforts, the fewer become those who agree with me, a textbook example of negative feedback. I can only hope that Darwinian “science” will one day be recognized as the greatest and most long lived hoax in the history of science at which time it will be relegated to the scrap heap which it has always deserved.

“Only the stupidest calves choose their own butcher.”

14. John A. Davison - October 9, 2011

Stuart Campbell has for the fourth time tried to insult us, this time by claiming that scientists do not seek absolute truth. The truth is all that the scientist seeks. Naturally, I protected him from himself by denying approval of his message. Instead, I emailed him the following message.

Dear Stuart Campbell,

Thanks for providing me with more information about yourself. I will make sure that others share it. You are the gift that keeps on giving and the textbook masochist. It is too bad that the A team (Myers, Moran, Elsberry and Dawkins) have better sense than to expose themselves. Do your best to get them to denounce us as you have done. You have your work cut out for you. Those cowards won’t open their mouths. They will leave you out to hang and dry. Trust me.

Thanks again,

John A. Davison, Professor of Biology Emeritus, University of Vermont. L4 Grandview Drive, South Burlington, VT 05403

Darwinians are not interested in pursuing the truth because they already know what it is. They constitute a highly cohesive disgrace to descriptive and experimental science, doomed to the oblivion they so richly deserve.

PS. The above message emailed to the four usual suspects plus Stuart Campbell.

15. John A. Davison - October 9, 2011

Here is my latest email to Mr. Stuart Campbell who continues to insult us.

Dear Stuart,

Don’t stop. You are music to my ancient ears. Let’s see if you can get another living soul to do what you have done which is to sign your real name to the denunciation of our Prescribed Evolutionary Hypothesis (PEH) and our Semi-meiotic Hypothesis (SMH). I am betting you can’t.

I’ll give you a week after which I will publish your failure or your success.

Good luck, you are going to need it!

17. John A. Davison - November 3, 2011

Rather than respond to critics, the Darwinian faithful continue a practice that began with Darwin himself when he refused to acknowledge Mivart’s devastating assertion that Natural Selection could not possibly be involved in the appearance of a new morphological structure. Darwin’s pathetic response was to say – “I hold my ground.”

Since Darwin, matters have gotten worse, if that can be imagined. For over a century and a half now, no matter what anyone has written, the Darwinista pretend it never happened.

Like a closed Union shop, only those who have paid their dues to the “Great God Darwin” can speak. All others are barred at the door of the regular meetings held at “Pharyngula,” “Panda’s Thumb,” “Scientopia,” “Evolution Is True,” “RichardDawkins.net” and “After the Bar Closes.” Those few occasions when criticism escapes summary deletion, result in no reaction whatsoever as in my six challenges which I presented on Larry Moran’s 2011 “birthday” thread on his “Sandwalk” blog. Sometimes we are met with obscene insult, the reaction by Mark Chu-Carrol, but the vast majority of our efforts are ignored or considered the ravings of a lunatic, my reception at Jerry Coyne’s “Evolution Is True” blog. Both Coyne and Chu-Carroll immediately then denied me any response, my status at all the above blogs except “Sandwalk” where Moran has chosen his own method of dealing with dissent. Not only does Moran not respond to me, but he allows no one else to respond either, the mark of an intellectual tyrant.

I present this brief summary as it demonstrates with perfect clarity that the Darwinian paradigm, a century and a half after its introduction, still cannot be defended in rational, civilized fashion. It is without question the most absurd, indefensible suggestion in the history of science.

I just sent the following email to Stuart Campbell, Pee Zee Myers, Wesley Elsberry, Larry Moran and Richard Dawkins –


Stuart Campbell and the other recipients of this message.

With respect to my use of Leo rather than Lev Berg, why don’t you obtain a copy of Nomogenesis and see who the author is? I’ll bet Nomogenesis isn’t in the Cornell Library or, if it is, I’ll bet it still looks brand new. Be sure to read what Berg’s protégé Theodosius Dobzhansky had to say about his ex mentor’s science after Berg had long been dead. (1969 edition by M.I.T. Press).

Furthermore, Dobzhansky failed the acid test faced by every scientist. He refused to believe his own experimental findings after he had proved beyond any reasonable doubt that Drosophila melanogaster could not be experimentally transformed through selection into a new species.

Nomogenesis, Leo Berg’s only book dealing with the mechanism of organic evolution, is far and away the most important book ever published on that subject because he properly identified the role of natural selection. Natural selection has always been anti-evolutionary and so, we believe, has obligatory sexual (Mendelian) reproduction. It is natural selection today that has finally brought evolution to a complete standstill because creative evolution is no longer in progress. Only extinction remains.

If you or any of the “Big 4” have the capacity to respond in civil fashion to this message, I will present your responses on my weblog.

I will give them a couple of days to take this opportunity to counter our thesis. Failure to respond will indicate the death of the Darwinian myth.

19. John A. Davison - November 10, 2011

This is an open letter to the scientfic community.

Some time ago I sought those who support our thesis that evolution is now finished, that Mendelian reproduction is incompetent to produce new species, and that natural selection prevents rather than promotes evolutionary change. I did this by asking that they demonstrate their interest in the great mystery of organic evolution by reprinting on their websites my essay – “Natural Selection: The Achilles Heel of Darwinism.”

Only Terry Trainor complied with my request. Accordingly I am forced to conclude that only Terry Trainor was willing openly to support our thesis.

It is a sad day for biological science when a challenge to the Darwinian myth can still evoke virtually no significant response from the community of scholars. While I am disappointed, I can assure all who visit this weblog that this lack of interest will not blunt my purpose which is finally to erase the most failed notion in the history of science from the scientific literature and replace it with real science as revealed by the experimental laboratory and the fossil record.

20. John A. Davison - November 11, 2011

In message 298 which was also emailed to each of the five Darwinian zealots, Pee Zee Myers, Richard Dawkins, Wesley Eslberry, Larry Moran and Stuart Campbell, I invited them to respod to our thesis, the only proviso being that they remain civil. Only Campell has responded and he was far from civil, addressing me as “Johnny” and using the word “shit” in his response, neither of which are tolerated on this weblog.

Let the record show that these five individuals have declined my invitation to defend their own position or to criticize ours in an open forum.

This is nothing but a continuation of a strategy which has characterized the Darwinista for over 152 years. Nothing has changed in that interval as a congenital atheism has overwhelmed science and reason to a degree unparalleled in the history of science. These zealots have decided to disregard not only the testimony of the experimental laboratory but also to defy all the evidence from the fosslil record, the final referee for the ascending goal oriented sequence which that record unambiguously reveals.

21. John A. Davison - November 18, 2011

I just sent the following email to the “Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism” plus Stuart Campbell –


I see that you Darwinian zealots insist on continuing your time honored tradition of pretending that that you have never had credible adversaries. I just discovered the perfect response to your intellectual cowardice in the form of a TV advertisement for men’s clothing –

“You’re going to like the way you look. I guarantee it.”

It doesn’t get any better than this!

Stuart Campbell continues to harass me. And he wonders why I don’t let him comment on my weblog. Here below is his latest with my response as copied directly from my email. My response precedes his message as is usual with email exchanges

I didn’t delete your snotty comment. I never let it appear. We don’t permit insults on this weblog. We fear no man, nor any institution. It is they who fear us which is why they remain silent.

I told you no one would support you and no one has. You are all alone. How does it feel to be the only Darwinian alive with the guts to oppose us publicly?

Incidentally, Peter Borger has posted my essay and is translating it (Natural Selection: The Achilles Heel of Darwinism) into Dutch. Trainor had already posted it on his website. Have you read it yet? If you can produce a civil, rational commentary on it, I might let it appear.

If anyone comes across as deranged, it is Stuart Campbell.

In another email, Mr. Campbell claims that semi-meiosis does not exist and is a figment of my deranged imagination.

It is hard to believe isn’t it.

Not really. It accurately depicts the length to which the Darwinian faithful are willing to go to preserve the most persistent hoax in the history of science.

P.S. This message will also be emailed to the “Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism” and their only representatve willing to use his real name – Stuart Campbell, a graduate student in biological science at Cornell University.

23. John A. Davison - November 28, 2011


Terry Trainor alerted me to this important development. The Darwinians are obviously desperate when they have to resort to such tactics in order to preserve the biggest hoax in the history of science.

It doesn’t get any better than this!

24. John A. Davison - November 28, 2011

Here below is my latest email to Stuart Campbell and the contacts provided by Pee Zee Myers, Richard Dawkins, Larry Moran and Wesley Elsberry.

Stuart Campbell,

You just don’t get it do you. You are the only living Darwinian willing to openly oppose Terry Trainor, John A. Davison and Peter Borger. You are living proof that Darwinism is utterly without merit and completely indefensible as an explanatory thesis. All the others, and they number in the tens of thousands, have better sense than to do what you have done. Darwinism in every aspect is a total disaster and apparently you are the only human being who doesn’t realize it.

It is hard to believe isn’t it. Not at all. You have made it transparently obvious. I thank you for your cooperation in this very important demonstration.

All you have to do is renounce Darwinism publicly and you will instantly become Cornell’s most famous product. To do so after you get your PH.D. would be sheer hypocrisy on your part and you would never be able to live it down. If your laboratory work is solid, they wouldn’t dare deny your degree. You have a golden opportunity and you would be a fool not to implement it.

Good luck!

Let me remind my readers that as I always have, I welcome comments from any quarter about anything I present here. My only requirement is civility. What other websites can offer such an opportunity? If many continue to pretend we don’t exist, that reflects on them and not on John A. Davison.

Merry Christmas to all, friend and foe alike.

28. vmartin1 - December 27, 2011

Now most of your enemies are Darwinian ideologists and propagandists. Do not expect civility.
Happy New Year John.

29. John A. Davison - December 27, 2011

I know that Martin and they are all terrified to acknowledge our existence, the one notable exception being Stuart Campbell.

Here is the latest email from Stuart Campbell, just received –

ha ha. “Civility requirement”. Of course you shouldn’t expect civility – you’ve never been civil to anyone who disagrees with you, why should you expect it back. What rank hypocrisy, you duplicitous hack. No new Psience from the South Burlington Evolution Lab? no new papers? Serious, I need a laugh, send something on

I have gone out of my way to be civil and I have been treated with contempt for my efforts. Naturally, I have responded in kind.

I no longer communicate privately with Stuart Campbell.

P.S. This message sent to the usual suspects plus Stuart Campbell.

30. John A. Davison - December 28, 2011

If Stuart Campbell weren’t so pathologically obsessed with me, he would know that I have no laboratory. Shortly after my resignation in December 2000, the University Administration ordered the Campus Police to sieze all my keys, thereby denying me any access to the building where I had a laboratory for over thirty years. Several valuable books and papers, my Carl Zeiss phase contrast microscope, and a surgical binocular dissection scope were all illegally confiscated by unknown parties and I have been unable to recover any of them. They were National Science Foundation grant purchased articles which I brought with me when I first arrived a UVM in 1968.

My website has never been a laboratory. It is a Journal recording my experiences and my respnses as a scientist and a citizen and nothing more.

I doubt if Stuart Campbell has ever visited my weblog. If he had, he would know these things.

I still welcome anyone to comment on my weblog, the only requirement being civility, something for Stuart Campbell obviously foreign to his nature. Like Paul Zachary Myers, Campbell’s forte is character assassination.

31. John A. Davison - December 28, 2011

It gets better and better. Stuart Campbell continues to berate me, most recently claiming I should have been arrested for bringing my optics with me when I came to the University of Vermont. He seems to have no concept of what is meant by the term “independent investigator.” My optics and other materials have traveled with me from University to University and were never the property of the University of Vermont or any other University where I had been a faculty member. They were purchased by me with grant funds awarded to me by the National Science Foundation and were never the property of anyone else.

You know what I think? I think Stuart Campbell is having his graduate education paid for with funds awarded him from the “Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism.” Terrified to even mention my name themselves, they have hired this rabid excuse for a scientist to do what they themselves dare not do. They are content to let some pathological nothing represent their interests which are to do whatever it takes to bring down John A. Davison, his many distinguished predecessors, his Semi-Meiotic Hypothesis (SMH), the Prescribed Evolutionary Hypothesis (PEH), and every other aspect of our science all of which is lethal to the Darwinian fantasy to which all five of them blindly still adhere. It won’t work Mr. Campbell. Keep on doing your best. You are wasting your time and pleasing me immensely in the process.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all five of you.

P.S. THis message emailed to the Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism and Stuart Campbell.

After receiving the above message, Stuart Campbell responded in an email to me by describing me as “incompetent.”

It doesn’t get any better tha this.

I love it so!

32. John A. Davison - December 29, 2011

Speaking of character assassins at which Stuart Campbell is very adept, I note that Pharyngula, Paul Zachary Myers’ personal webpage, has undergone a drastic decline. He once had several topics a day with hundreds of comments each. Now he has only a couple with very few comments.

It looks like his day has come and gone.

The latest directed at me from Stuart Campbell –

“You’re dumb as paint.”

He also seems to think that Sic semper tyrannis originated with John Wilkes Booth. It probably originated during the assassination of Julius Caesar and is the motto of the State of Virginia today. It might well apply to the Darwinista who love to abuse their power and authority. Apparently, Pee Zee Myers has finally thrown in the towel. Who will be next?

Incidentally, Stuart Campbell, never at a loss for insult, just sent me another email, calling me a “Dumb Ass.” Suart Campbell, a graduate student at Cornell, is the gift to us that keeps right on giving.

I love it so!

His futile attempts to engage me I find very revealing. I gave up trying to reason with Mr. Campbell but I will continue to expose him with his own words as the hopeless ideologue he so obviously is. It is always with a person’s own words and deeds that his character is revealed. Campbell is doing a bang up job of demonstrating himself for all the readers of this weblog to savor and enjoy.

35. John A. Davison - January 2, 2012

What is most gratifying for us is the fact that the only adversary the Darwinista can field is Stuart Campbell, a graduate student from Cornell. All he does is hurl insults which I am delighted to reproduce. Not another living soul has challenged either my Semi-meiotic Hypothesis (SMH) or the Prescribed Evolutionary Hypothesis (PEH). Campbell is so far out of touch with reality that he denies their very existence. I don’t recall anyone challenging Mendel’s genetics either, a scientific vacuum that lasted for 32 years. My Semi-meiotic Hypothesis was published in 1984, a mere 28 years ago. The longer it continues to be ignored, the more certain becomes its future as the only conceivable explanation for what the fossil record and the experimental laboratory continue to reveal.

Darwinism in all its bizarre convolutions is nothing but wool gathering by six generations of armchair theoreticians all congenitally incapable of recognizing the unvarnished truth. Their shared conviction is that not only do god or gods not now exist, but that they never did. To embrace such an absurd philosophy renders such creatures incompetent as observers of the animate world.

The above is the first message that I have sent to the Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism plus Stuart Campbell that hasn’t evoked a stream of insults from Stuart Campbell. It seems Mr. Campbell has decided that discretion is the better part of valor. Unfortunately for him, his venom is now preserved for so long as this weblog survives. Oh, how I wish the other four could be a rash as he has been. Their silence speaks volumes as to their confidence in the Darwinian hoax.

Here is Pharyngula’s new home. Myers has not mentioned anything even remotely scientific in a very long time. Mostly he now reprints testimonials from others about why they are atheists like himself. And see how his cowardly pseudonymous sycophants hang on his every word. I imagine he thinks there is safety and power in numbers. I answer – “there isn’t!”

It is interesting that when Myers discovered that I claim evolution is finished his only response was –
“It isn’t!” No documentation just assertion.

Here is a typical example of Myers’ advertising others who have embraced atheism.

I challenge Myers to identify a single first rate scientist who has ever used atheism as the sine qua non on which his science depends. I can’t think of a single one!

And who is Diego Rosato? I never heard of him!

The above link will take you to Pee Zee Myers’ new “Dungeon,” his new “Hate File.” There you will find me as the very first entry.

To be granted such a distinction by the most notorius character assassin of all time is a tribute to my honesty, my integrity and, above all, my influence in the world of evolutionary biology as the most effective critic of the Darwinian hoax now alive.

You have no idea how pleased I am with Pee Zee’s new and improved “Dungeon.”

In case the link doesn’t work here is what he has to say about me –


Name Crime
John A. Davison Incorrigible, senile lunatic who doesn’t understand how blogs work, but does spam me with his repetitive claims of having disproven evolution by email.


Myers is a transparent liar. He knows that I am an evolutionist but cannot tolerate the fact that I am not a Darwinian like himself, Dawkins, Moran and Elsberry, the “Big 4 of Darwinian mysticism.” And let’s not forget Stuart Campbell, a graduate studenty at Cornell.

I am a convinced evolutionist and have been all my adult life. It is only the MECHANISM by which it proceeded (past tense) that has ever been in question. There is not a word in the Darwinian paradigm that has any validity whatsoever – not a word.

I know exactly how blogs work. They establish intolerant empires from which tyrants like Paul Zachary Myers, Clinton Richard Dawkins, Wesley Royce Elsberry and Laurence A. Moran launch their spiteful bigotry against all that is decent, honest and ethical in Western Society. Every aspect of their shared philosophy collapses as it is now obvious that organic evolution was Planned and has reached its climax with the present animate world, one which is in a state of progressive disintegration. Just as the development of the individual (ontogeny) ends with its death, so does evolution, (phylogeny) end with extinction.

“Neither in the one nor in the other is there room for chance.”
Leo Berg, Nomogenesis, page 134.

The history of the fossil record reveals a series of ascending eras, the Age of Fishes, the Age of Amphibians, the Age of Reptiles followed by the Age of Mammals and BIrds. The difference now is: there is no future era to replace the one in which we find ourselves. I believe The Plan became complete with the arrival of Homo sapiens no more than 100,000 years ago. Only mass extinction, already well under way, remains.

Things are looking up. We have now exposed Paul Zachary Myers as a liar (with his own words of course). Or doesn’t that matter any more? Does it matter if persons must lie in order to maintain their status as leaders? Will his lies in any way diminish his role in evolutionary science? These are the questions I ask those who visit this blog to consider.

I say that a person who must lie about an adversary is committing intellectual suicide.

“Never murder a man when he is busy committing suicide.”
Woodrow Wilson

“Tricks and treachery are the practice of fools that don’t have brains enough to be honest.”
Benjamin Franklin

So much for Paul Zachary Myers.
