Unlike QiLongia, Mickey Mortimer, Trilobiter, Tim Weaselliams, and so many others who, as antisemites, posture and cheapen the promise of dinosaurology (these peripatetic fabricators are marvellous arguments in favour of voluntary euthanasia)...David Hull did science -- turning the philosophy of biology into a rigorous, exciting dialogue...even when he disagreed with Stephen Jay Gould (their debates were at the high table of paleobiological discourse) my 'hero' among heroes, David Hull maintained courage...even when AIDS ravaged the joy of his existence.So many are departing.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~STEPHAN PICKERING / Chofetz Chayim ben-AvrahamJewish dinosaurologist / Heretic spiritistTHE DINOSAUR FRACTALS PROJECT2333 Portola Drive # 4Santa Cruz, California 95062-4250IN PROGRESS: Mutanda Dinosaurologica: in memory of Samuel Paul Welles (9 November 1909--6 August 1997)IN PROGRESS: Dialects of a synaesthetic heart: poetics for Faline Pickering (23 January 1949--24 August 2008)IN PROGRESS: Alfred Russel Wallace's KING KONG: the semioptics of Willis O'BrienPARTNER IN THE UNIVERSE TO: FALINE PICKERING, MY BELOVED QUANTUM PISCESMEMBER 13853: Society of Vertebrate PaleontologyOne concept corrupts and confuses the others.
