Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In fact, "Big-Bang-Darwinists" is fail all on its own in several ways.

First, there are no "Darwinists" left anymore. There really hasn't been since the modern synthesis in the mid-20th century.

Second, the Big Bang has nothing to do with evolution, Darwinian or otherwise. Were steady-state cosmology, or even geocentrism, to pull some startling new discovery out of a hat that overturned big bang cosmology, it would do precisely nothing to change evolutionary biology. Cosmology stopped being biologically interesting a few hundred million years before the last universal common ancestor(s).

"Big-Bang-Darwinists" - was just a joke referring to those to whom these are all just technical, cold events in our long scientific history.

But thanks for your explanations anyway.

The insinuation that "cold" and "technical" are somehow related is another pet peeve of mine. But I think I've elaborated on that in sufficient detail upthread.

You really are in a mood for hitting all my sore spots today ;-P
