There are a lot of crazy people in the world, so my mother told me when I was a child. And so I have found. And one of the problems with the internet is that they are allowed to have a place to spew their insanity.
Introducing the notorious lunatic Graeme Bird:
He is listed as a banned person on P Z Myers’ blog Pharyngula:
It happens now and then that some gibbering loon makes a persistent appearance somewhere on the blog, and the ensuing wrangle goes on and on and on. We’ve had just such an occurrence on this thread, which is bloating up to almost 700 comments now. Graeme Bird is an Australian wanna-be politician of the crank variety, a global warming denialist, anti-vaxer, anti-evolutionist and fan of ID, birther, truther, and like your typical obsessive kook, he just can’t let it go, even though he’s getting laughed at rather cruelly (and deservedly).
Anyway, the thread is getting too long and with no end in sight…so I’ve closed it.
It’s like taking a dead bird carcass away from a cat, though, so this new thread is for anyone who wants to continue mauling the crackpot, or for Bird himself, who will probably continue to caper for our amusement.
He’s not just crazy, he’s flamboyantly crazy.
Indeed, and he has continued to be crazy, by attacking Ed Darrell on his blog too for no good reason:
Environmentalists have murdered tens of millions with the centralization of malaria control. This is a fact of history. Anyone saying otherwise is a holocaust denier. Its a confession to being a eugenicist and an anti-black racist.
Ellie, your insistence on the use of nets alone is an attempt to bring malaria-infected mosquitos within three feet of someone elses beautiful little baby. Shame.
“Nets may allow mosquitoes to come within a few feet of a kid under the net, protecting the child all the time.”
No you are just being a moron Ed. Don’t be applying for jobs to do with occupational health and safety. This is about you wanting black kids dead.
Listen to the anti-black holocaust-denial:
“……as opposed to their DDT nonsense.”
What DDT nonsense would that be Schmidt? Would you like to spell it out? How many Jews are you claiming the third reich murdered while you are about it? Just a few thousand was it?
Finally, I looked at his own blog and found even more damning evidence of his lack of reason:
We know this for many reasons. The signs are all there. But in a nutshell we know this because this is not like any other oil spill disaster. This one can be switched off whensoever the perps decide the time is right for it.
The placement of any object, sufficiently heavy, with a mildly concave bottom, can easily stop this leakage. So it will go on as long as the perps want to continue with it and not a moment longer.
Says a man who clearly has never worked for the oil industry.
Someone else has made a blog all about this guy:
My mother is a very wise woman.
