Are scientists open minded?
Absolutely yes. Guess what Davey boy, the claims now resurrected as "intelligent design creationism" have been critically and carefully examined before. As have the "scientific" claims (read: claims that are to do with the natural world) of the bible been examined. All have been found to have no relation to the observed universe. Not one claim has been found to have even the merest shred of reliable, reproducible evidence to support it.
Yes yes yes, we all know you think they do, we all know you've swallowed the AiG KoolAid. Guess what, you are wrong, as has been demonstrated time after time after time after time on two threads (at least) and in excess of 11000 posts. And let's be honest, by ooooooooh every observation and experiment made by every scientist (religious or otherwise) in every lab, field, discipline and institution since before the ancient Greeks and across the whole globe. We KNOW you don't get this, we know WHY you don't get this, it really really really isn't us that has the problem.
In fact were I to pick up my Big Book of Words and Phrases (Illustrated pop-up edition) and flip to the big cardboard chew proof page which has the definition of "Self-deluding, unteachable, unwarrantedly arrogant, bible-blinded moron" Your gormless fizzog would pop so far and so fast out of the page that I would be concussed in an instant and spend hours unconscious with a gruelling nightmare vision of what it must be like to live inside that shrivelled, walnut of a thing that you call a brain (but is most probably a misplaced, hyperactive bile gland). For gibbering donkey fuck's sake Davey, the ideas contained in ID and the "science" contained in the bible has been so thoroughly disproven that it is only possible to believe otherwise under the grip of some truly amazing mental pathology. Like I said before Davey, go away, go far far away and use some of the money you have earned riding toy aeroplanes at the county fairground to get yourself some very in depth psychoanalysis and therapy.
There is a real opportunity for a serious conversation between educated, mentally competent, rational adults (a category of human beings to which you fail to qualify for on any of the four criteria) about a serious issue on this, and many other threads, it should be manifestly obvious to all but a dog-in-the-manger style moron like you that your presence is neither desired nor required. Go away until you have something worthwhile to say, which judging by past experience should be immediately after your death.
P.S. Added in edit, I wonder is this post is sufficient for me to earn the rank of BAWAA Knight?
