Just received an em-mail by Jean Staune laughing with my error. I hope he enjoyed it as much as myself. After finishing laughing I searched for the source of the error. Well, while analyzing the text to transform it to a small database to prepare my comments in it, the soft transformed the closest name-like element to the comment’s author name.
So, as Staune say in his message « a brand new biologist was born! »
What is more interesting in the message is that Staune ask me to admit that I’m lucky, him being a christian, who by charity is point me (privately) to my error. As one would say, « Jesus, I’m a lucky guy« .
Well, first of all, thank you Mister Staune for pointing to an error. I assume it plainly and publicly, no need to imagine that I wouldn’t do so. And I posted an ‘erratum’ rather then simply edit my posts [fr]. And when other people do so I praise them [fr] even if we aren’t exactly one could call friends.
Then he continues by saying that he isn’t going to talk about my error all around saying that this « poor AV pretending being a biologist and being of the level to defend darwinism while he don’t even know how to read a text… he don’t even know Brien Goodwin (Laughters) »
Now, as I’m not a christian and the charity I practice isn’t selfish, I’m claiming publicly that I mistaken, doing so in a plain post and not just in a simple erratum. (oh, by the way, I should add mention of it in the #0 post of the series)
As I say, Evolution happens, just like sh*t. Well, this is an example that sh*it happens.
On the other hand I’m not pretending being a biologist, I am a biologist. And I feel quite confident with defending my opinions, including darwinism. And I expect more then christian charity from Jean Staune, I’m expecting discussion. Then we will be able to say if I’m of the level to defend darwinism or not 😉
What I’m not, is a good programmer and I should find and fix that damn bug. And that’s the real sh*it that happened to me today
