Hello.  Wee call for help actually.  :(

Attempting to activate my registration on ATBC, unfortunately my computer skills are about as good as my driving skills (sorry).  So I hope I'm posting this at the right place.   ???

I keep getting this error message:

"An error occured, not all of the required fields were sent from the validation link. Please ensure that they whole link was entered, it's possible that your email clients auto-wrapper cut the link in half. Please try again.

You are NOT logged in"

I've tried pressing the links provided in the email and also copying & pasting them into my browser.  Even when already logged in, going into these particular links, they dont seem to recognise me being logged in and I get the same error message.  I don't seem to have a problem logging in otherwise or with posting comments on a thread, but of course, I won't be able to after 30 days if I can't activate this darn thing.  Could anyone help?  Thanks.

"Leo, let’s see how you respond to the familiar Mount Rushmore test."

Oh no!  How will Leo ever pass the 'Mount Rushmore Test' ?!?  It's obvious anyway that said alien would completely ignore Mount Rushmore itself and be amazed at the complex specified information inherent in all the other rocks nearby (the cracks, crags and lumpy bits) and MARVEL at the incredible design-work of the Intelligent Designer!

The ID packs that they sent out to school apparently did have links to the DI.  Thankfully, the government already saw the "truthinscience" packs and threw it out.

I doubt it'll stop places like the Vardy school from teaching it though, but hopefully we can at least limit its teaching to a few fundy schools.

Yup.  Someone on the Dawkins forum managed to get hold of one.  I've been hanging there a bit since the pc's at work (don't have the best net connection) have trouble loading PT if the comments get above 30 and my net at home went splat.   :(

Like Louis, I'm also a bit wary that the credence of ID will be overstated in these lessons and that it will be used as a stepping stone to get it into science lessons if popular opinion demands it.  Also, will they conflate evolution with atheism?  If taught in the right way, these classes might not be a problem, but then:

"I expect that it will be abused since some teachers are lying scum."

Then it WOULD be a problem.  Beware fundies sneaking in back doors.

To be fair, demallien, I think that calling Louis and Lenny 'abusive' is a bit OTT.  I've seen other posters at PT for example borderline on 'abuse', but I don't think what I've seen so far cuts it.  Okay, you may disagree with their methods, you might think that they're a pain in the butt, but so what?  The reason they might not be as 'nice' as you is simply they pointed out a flaw in Avo's reasoning, Avo didn't back it up and refused to back down when she was shown wrong.  That's when the kid-gloves come off and they'll just say what they think.  Avo is perfectly welcome to just switch off, or simply just say: "Fuckoff, you mean old evolutionists!".  Or back up (or even retract) some of her claims.  Sorry, but I had to have a little smile at some of Avo's posts because I KNEW that at any moment that Lenny was gonna come in for the slaughter.  (I also had that same smile when you told him to cool it).  

Now Avo could have reconsidered her position (especially since she had lots of other nice posters like yourself to point out her errors) but she didn't.  Hence the response she got.  I've seen this happen on other forums and usually it's the fundies who then cry out about how mean they are being treated, right after they've been slaughtered for talking nonsense.  If you wanna feel sorry for her then fine, but I saw this coming a mile away.  I don't think Louis or Lenny are gonna worry too much just because someone thinks they're 'mean'.  So, slaughter away, boys.   :D

"I was a tad concerned about a year ago when I thought that religious apologetics might get taught in science lessons. I do not see that as a danger now. I couldn't care less if ID was taught in schools providing it was in religious lessons rather than science."

I'm a little worried that they would use it as a stepping stone to gain public support and then try to force it in science class a few years later.  Remember, ID is not religion, it's a con.  So it shouln't be taught at all.  It was designed to appear scientific to the laymen and that's the problem.  Also, the Vardy schools teach creationism already.  

We unfortunately don't have the protection of seperation of church and state in the UK.  I know that our religious classes have not stopped us from teaching good science in general, but if public support grows for 'teach the controversy', it could be a problem.  It's easy for us to look at the USA and think we could never be that daft to even consider ID as science, but I would argue that fundieism in the UK is on the rise.

DaveScot recently popped in to BA's blog, where they've been debating over whether a YEC should be allowed to be given a PhD:

"To be awarded a PhD one needs to demonstrate understanding of the widely accepted views, and probably at least be familiar with the minority views, and be able to work within the widely accepted paradigm. One needn’t believe it. All science is tentative and anyone who doesn’t know that probably shouldn’t be awarded a PhD. I take it you don’t have one."

"I can say that when atheists suggest that atheism is not a religion and their ~philosophy~ is allowed in the science room as well as other classrooms under the notion of "truth and reason" rather than faith, it is irritating to me.  I feel that they have a foot in the door that other religions do not."

Funny, I don't remember atheism being mentioned in any of my science classes.  Why should religion be mentioned in science anyway?

"It doesn't mean that you're going to convince me that the historical inferences of the ToE are "fact".  And, I will always be open to creationist theories because personally I think they are much more logical (shut up - that's not due to my religious beliefs alone)."

Then perhaps you can provide us with the "science" of creationist "theories" then.  Oh right, you can't.

Stephen Elliott:

"Either, you do not know what the ID movement is or you don't know what science is or you are lying"

She knows what ID is (she's been told), she doesn't know what science is (she just doesn't get it) and unless she can provide any evidence (I don't think she understands that word) of the scientific majority being suppressed by a certain few bigwigs of science, it might be a slight possibility that (gasp) she's lying.

"I just don't understand why one makes the choice to be a Christian when they reject the NT as literal and, in fact, believe that some of what is written comes from an active imagination on the part of the writers."

"They're a relatively serious problem here because a) Tony and Tony's Cronies are the most religious bunch we've had in Number 10 for a while.

Evolution is not really referred to as "Neo-Darwinism" very often, as far as I know.  The word "Neo" literally means "New", but creo's like to use it because it sounds like a negative connotation, as in "Neo-Nazi's".  And since they hate Darwin, just the use of the term "Darwinist" in their eyes is a negative connotation.  Of course, evolution has come a long way since Darwin's time.

Misspell every word in the line "METHINKS IT IS LIKE A WEASEL" starting with one error per word and continue until every word in the line  became completely unrecognizable.

Seen this years ago, in fact someone made a whole website out of it.  Simple program, click the button once and a number of characters randomly change into different symbols, it's not even  restricted to alphanumeric characters - speechmarks, commas, anything can show up.  

The problem is that it's an argument by analogy, and a poor one too, conflating english language with biology.  

Another thing is, that pressing the button over and over for millions of years, it is easily possible that "Weasel" would appear.  In the "real world", weasels would stick around for a while (major catastrophes not withstanding).  Mutations may occur that may affect some weasels, but in the program, click the button once and the "Weasel" will disappear, replaced by gibberish.  That's analogous to the entire species dying off due to detrimental mutations in one click.  Which I would have thought would not happen very often in the "real world".

The originator of the Hydroplate Theory challenges anyone, and particularly any evolutionist, who doubts his theory to a book-length written debate. His terms should appeal readily to anyone who truly believes that he can defend evolution, and to a publisher interested in a controversial subject.

The debate question is simple:

   Does the scientific evidence favor creation or evolution?


Brown offers himself to debate the creation-science side, and asks only that the leader of the evolutionary team hold a doctorate in either the basic or applied sciences. (Brown holds a doctorate in engineering, the prototypical "applied science.") Brown includes that, not to say that someone without a doctorate is unqualified, but to rule out "lack of scientific qualifications" as a reason for a poor performance in the debate by either side. When an evolutionist has agreed to participate, then and only then will the selection of an editor-moderator become appropriate.

The two sides will choose one between them at random to recruit an editor and publisher. Then the other side may either accept that editor or try to recruit one of its own to offer as an alternate. The back-and-forth nominating will continue until one side has received three nominations, at which time it must select one of the three. The qualifications for an editor-moderator are:

  1. His publishing house must have more than $10 million US in annual sales, and
  2. He must not have a strong opinion either way on the creation-evolution controversy.

(Brown next proposes to outsource the design of the book. Brown is self-published, and needed to recruit his own book-design experts. A publisher with $10 million US in annual sales almost certainly has its own art department, a fact with which Brown might not be familiar.)

Each side must then submit four manuscripts, each having 100,000 words, or the equivalent in text and graphics, with each graphic regarded as equivalent to 200 words. The submissions are due in four-months intervals, beginning four months after the two sides agree on the selection of an editor. The editor's first job is to strike from each submission all religious ideas, "unprofessional remarks," or dilatory comments. The editor must then transmit both submissions to each side within a month of receiving them. The editor also would have full authority to call an early halt to the debate if he decides that one side or the other is not participating fairly.
