Borger responds

I've decided that the original post at this address did not fit with what I want for my blog. So I deleted it.

This blog is supposed to be a respite from the vitriol that surrounds internet discussions of creation and evolution. The original post here that critiqued emails sent to me by creationist Peter Borger crossed the line. That was my mistake. I got carried away, but that's no excuse. I will try to be more vigilant in the future.

Be assured, however, that my assessment of Borger's papers remains unchanged. Where he has "adopted" some of my speculative hypotheses about how species change, that's good, but his use of these ideas as anti-evolution arguments is entirely unwarranted.
