A Tip O' The Beer Mug To Mike Gene

This is sad news. Mike Gene is retiring from Telic Thoughts to spend more time with his family.

Mike is that unique voice in the ID/evolution debate who will not be pigeonholed into an extreme position and whose views are well-thought and demand to be taken seriously on their merits alone. Mike's posts at TT have helped to influence my views; his inputs will be sorely missed.

Here's to Mike Gene. May God bless your time with your family and allow to keep following the Rabbit wherever it goes.


  1. And in the post-Mike era, the inmates are now in charge of that asylum. Joy just banned Heddle from a thread because she "doesn't like him."


  2. Opps, I spoke too soon; I couldn't decipher Joy's rationale on the first go-round. It appears that she has banned Raevmo, and scolded Heddle. Mea culpa.

  3. dave, I see what is happening at TT post-Mike, and I don't like it. I can only hope that Bilbo and Bradford provide a good counterbalance to the firey posts of Joy and guts.

  4. Well, at least they had the good sense (or something) to deep-six that entire thread. Click on the link in my first message and you get this:

    Error 404 - Not Found


  5. dave, Bilbo has admitted to accidentally deleting the thread here.
