You know, I think I see where Glenn and Burgy have been talking past each
other on this one.

Glenn, you didn't really mean to say that Phil Johnson *himself believes*
that whales evolved from rodents, did you? (I think Burgy took you
overly literally there) Isn't what you really meant to say something like:
"Phil Johnson believes that evolutionary theory has whales evolving from
so that your claim was about his ignorance of evolutionary theory?

Burgy, given that Glenn was a little sloppy in his wording in pointing
out PJ's misconceptions about evolutionary theory, can you agrtee with
what Glenn must have meant, namely that, from Johnson's writings, it does
look like he is claiming that this is a part of standard Darwinsim?
