At First Things, Columnist Stephen Webb Gives Intelligent-Design Critic Stephen Meredith an Education

Gene Ray makes more sense than you do.
Oklahoma's Senate Bill 1765 (PDF), which would, if enacted, have deprived administrators of the ability to prevent teachers from miseducating students about "scientific controversies," died in the Senate Education Committee on February 24, 2014, when a deadline for senate bills to pass committee expired.
Repeating lies, over and over again, is how the academically profitable scam is perpetrated.
Which makes it such a shame that 110% of nothing is still nothing.
Quote 40 points for claiming that the "scientific establishment" is engaged in a "conspiracy" to prevent your work from gaining its well-deserved fame, or suchlike. Quote 20 points for defending yourself by bringing up (real or imagined) ridicule accorded to your past theories. Quote 10 points for claiming that your work is on the cutting edge of a "paradigm shift". Quote 40 points for comparing those who argue against your ideas to Nazis, stormtroopers, or brownshirts.
Gary always gives 110%.
Heh. They used to play that on the local campus station at 6am Mondays. Now, thanks to a technology upgrade, we get "library on random". Bleh.
I'd love to see the tiniest bit of evidence that any money at all has been spent specifically to discredit Gary, his "work", or destroy him/his life.
That some or all of these things might have happened as a side effect of doing genuine scientific work of proven value is at most a happy side effect.
Gary's pathetic whiny self-importance is merely one ongoing symptom of his delusions of adequacy. He's just not very good at it.
Quote (Richardthughes @ Feb. 25 2014,00:29) Quote (sparc @ Feb. 24 2014,23:19) Quote "Another thing that makes me think that maybe this work is having an impact is that after it started gaining momentum, Michigan State University, home of Pennock’s Digital Evolution Lab, received a huge $25 million NSF grant in 2010 for BEACON (Bio-computational Evolution in Action CONsortium). I suspect that at least part of the rationale for the NSF giving our tax dollars to fund this boondoggle is the threat to Darwinian evolution posed by the Evolutionary Informatics Lab."
I was not aware that megalomania is measured in Dembskis.
ETA: just learned that the unit can only be properly expressed with caps lock on.
from the interview:
Quote Far better would have been to use those seven minutes to recount the record of accomplishment of intelligent design.
It would involve s p e a k i n g v e r y s l o w l y.
Think Sir Clement Freud on Just a Minute.
Well, I'd love to see you stop whining like a brat, but that's probably not gonna happen either. Such is life.
I would love to see what would happen where the situation were reversed, and massive amounts of funding were only allowed to be invested in the destruction of the lives and livelihood of those who play with Genetic Algorithms and all the other trivial garbage used to colorfully parade the academic sacred cow, where it brings in money by the millions, especially when a few thousand "science supporters" are running around claiming that the sky/science is falling (on account of ID).

The whining in this forum is coming from asshole babies like you who think that their science-stopping shit does not smell.
Really, GarGar? You're resorting to "I know you are but what am I"? You're as skilled at insults as you are at science. And English composition.
