This is gratifying, despite the numerous creationists infesting the comments—people who don’t know squat about biology and nevertheless feel compelled to pronounce on it. Several people said, “We know nothing about speciation,” apparently unaware that I wrote a 450-page book telling biologists what we know (and want to know) about that very field!
Even worse are those who, having no arguments, just call me names; as Hitchens said, “If they start insulting you, you know they’ve got nothing.” Or something like that. (By the way, should remarks attacking the evolution of humans be called ad hominin?) Fortunately, my skin is too thick to be disturbed by them, though I briefly thought of playing the victim and starting a pity-based Patreon.
I may post tomorrow on some of the craziness in the 500-odd comments on my Post review of Tom Wolfe’s new book.
