I don't think anyone's taking Dave "seriously," Arden—I don't think anyone has since it became apparent that, despite his claims to the contrary, nothing would persuade him of the falsity of his "UPDATED Creator God Drivel."
I do admit to a morbid fascination, though. Dave really is like a party pinata: hit him just the right way, and all kinds of nifty thingamajigs spill out. His attempts to explain away the stratigraphy of the Grand Canyon are priceless, and are worth the price of admission (which is admittedly pretty low) all by themselves.
I do look for Dave's latest posts with interest every day. I have to say I'm not adding much to the conversation in terms of the fascinating nuggets of real science contributed by the likes of JonF, Deadman, and Occam's Aftershave. I'd say my function is to keep Dave honest about his claims, but since that's a practical impossibility, I have to say I'm functioning more as someone to point out to the lurkers just how dishonest he really is about his claims, like when he keeps saying he's been persuaded by the evidence supporting biblical inerrancy.
What evidence? is my response, every time. I have to admit, as much as Dave hates it, I get a kick out of it.
