I hate to disappoint the church burnin' ebola boys but I won't be commenting on UD in the future. I just told the smarmy Canadian cross dresser to go fuck itself in an email. It would have banned me in any case as it's nowhere near as cool as Bill Dembski. The stick up its disgusting ass could make a redwood feel inadequate. I'm going to go ahead and forgive Bill for this monumental brainfart as he's going through some long term bad shit on the homefront with a sick child. I felt bad about bailing out on him at a time like this but he forced my hand. No big deal. I had a few extra hours today to finish rebuilding the carbs on my jetboat (it's back together and running great) and throw a ball in the water for my puppy. He's napping at my feet on the houseboat at the moment. I think we'll go out for a swim and then take the jetboat for a longer validation run.

P.S. if my dog was as ugly as the Canadian cross dresser I'd shave his ass and teach him to walk backwards.

HAHAHA - I kill me sometimes!

Nope you're both wrong. I think it's (perhaps misdirected) sexual selection.

Kristine, an intelligent female of the species H. sapiens is desirous of a mate. Obviously she considers various options but notices one specimin who seems to stand out somewhat. Like the peacock's tail, Dembski's tard is enormous and showy, demonstrating that he must be an especially "fit" individual to have managed to attain reproductive age with such an enormous burden of tard. Obviously this is not a conscious decision.

Alternatively it is possible that Kristine, being as I said an intelligent and discerning member of our species can consciously "see which way the wind is blowing" and wishes to provide her future offspring with a decently tardalicious genome so that they too will be able to better find mates and produce tardlings.

I wonder what Joan Roughgarden would make of this?

Actually I think Kristine just loves a good target.

Lost 2 pounds. Minus 13 for me after 5 weeks. I bought a high tech rice cooker/warmer last week and started eating with chopsticks.

Here's the rice cooker.

http://www.beachaudio.com/product....d=64635

It was $99 on the shelf at the local Fry's Electronics store. Works great every time and keeps rice warm, moist, and fluffy for up to 24 hours. I got sick of Minute Rice and don't want to mess around trying to cook real rice on a stove.


Quite right Dave, that rice can be tricky and sticky. It is wise to go with the high tech solution for a problem as complex as cooking rice.

I'm surprised you didn't add some of your fungi for flavour but perhaps there's not mush room in the high tech cooker *slash* (everyone do the karate style hand action, please) warmer for that.


It's not like its hard to spend about 20 mins cooking rice. Granted the electric cookers are nice, but it's not like adding water and rice to a pot, applying heat, pulling himself away from all the research he's is doing...i mean cheesy poofs he's eating, for 15 to 20 mins and actually focusing on the cooking process is that hard. I mean Dave could actually do other things like write embarrassing posts on UD displaying his ego fueled stupidity while the rice is cooking.

Pretty lame piece if you ask me. Being happy that someone has passed naturally and can no long spread their specific brand of hate is nothing to be ashamed of. I didn't wish the man dead and had nothing to do with his death, but if his time had come, I can in a clear conscious rejoice that he is no longer around to continue with his actions. There are bad people that don't deserve my pity or faked sorrow.

That's just a childish way of looking at the world. The world is not always a happy playtime jungle-gym. Sometimes it sucks and sometimes it sucks specifically because of certain people. When they die I'm not going to show some false emotion. If they've moved me in one way or another I'm going to say what I think.

I don't think anyone is asking you to mourn someone's death falsely, or show any false emotions.  Of course, exaggerating what other people say so that it's easier to argue against is only human (as explained in the article).  The only thing he's saying in the article is that in general one comes across as a dick when one celebrate someone's death.  I personally think it doesn't reflect well on one's character, and it comes across as just another type of hate.  It's tough to rise above it, however.  I certainly wasn't sad with Falwell's passing.  But, a great deal of American's did like the guy.  Imagine what I'd look like through their eyes if I laughed during his funeral.  Would that help or hurt the "culture war?"

Understandable. However I do not think it is unwarranted, like I said, to be thankful that someone who worked to divide and worked to harm a significant portion of the population is now gone. It's not celebrating the death it's being thankful that a portion of evil or whatever you want to classify it is gone. I'm not going to stop saying someone was an nasty bigoted bastard just because they're dead. It doesn't change that they were a nasty bigoted bastard. And just because a large portion of the population liked or even loved him has zero bearing on that.

Since you have Behe’s book why don’t you write a review of Carrol’s review?

If you think you’re not qualified then that is precisely the point. To critique Carrol’s critique one should be qualified to critique the original work....The fact that they used a blog loudmouth/computer science expert to review the work of a biochemist in the field of biochemistry looks suspiciously like the book can’t be criticized by an expert in biochemistry.

(Rubs eyes)  Did he really just say that?

Dr. Behe and I part ways on many points but I always give him a good read and I thought why not share that with everyone in the process.  Now, I anticipate most here haven't read this book so I'll be doing a service with my summary.  Who knows, maybe we'll hear something new.  :D

MCC is in computer science, not  mathematics.

Yes and we all know there's no math in computer science. He's well enough versed in mathematic theory and application to be called a mathematician. More so than, what the point of this was, DaveScot on many of the things he spouts off about.

Remember it's the validity of the argument that counts not the resume of it's arguer.

DaveScot continuously proves himself to be lacking in both resume and valid argument.

Mark is competent in both and in spades.

I'm no mathematician but if you'd care to invalidate the arguments in his review, please feel free. I believe there are a number of people waiting for a reverse review of his review.

Front-loading is also an idea proposed by John Davison in his extraordinary anti-darwinian work Evolutionary Manifesto. Such an idea of front-loading seems to better explain evolution as darwinian mantras of random mutation and natural selection does.

I would say that the Nature itself gives us some examples when the same DNA  contains information for different morphological structures - larvae, pupa, butterfly - as is the case of metamorphosis. That these three different morphological structures of the same indivudal evolved gradually via random mutation&natural selection is probably another darwinian fancy.

Or, on second thought, maybe your examples suck and providing further information will make that even more obvious.

FTK,
I have a serious question. What is it about people who are in your life position that make them want to believe the most far fetched and least supported ideas by people like Brown or Ham or Hovind? Some who's methods and research are so poor they're laughed off by even other creationists and yet dismiss the findings of the people who are the best educated, most experienced and happen to occupy the vast vast majority of the scientific population?

I know you consider yourself an open minded person, and ignoring your propensity to show that you are anything but, are you so insecure in the ability of your own mind to process the information that you have to fall back to the lowest common denominator of, and I use this term in the most loose definition possible, Science?

At this very moment, WmAD and his pet tardmonkey DaveScot are deciding how long to leave that page up before making it disappear into the ether.

It's killing me how funny it is.

He's

1) making the mistake in crapping his diaper over the non-fact that the guy was jailed for being an ID proponent - WRONG

2) Defending a Holocaust denier not because he was prosecuted for being holocaust denier but because of a made up charge that he's being prosecuted over believing in ID - WRONG

3) misses the boat by not railing against the actual stupid law that being a Holocaust denier is a crime and turning this into a free speech issue on the correct terms.

4)Choosing to make this a point on his blog. If it were me I wouldn't touch this guy with a ten foot pole if i was an ID proponent. "Thank you no holocaust deniers please."


Of course this is par for WmAD. If I wrote a paper on the perfect way to cook sweatbreads and used the shorthand of ID when referring to identifying the perfect sweatbread, there is a high probability that UD would have a post on it within days extolling my support for Intelligent Design.

Truthfully I wouldn't expect to see Common Descent in the fossil record. That is because not everything that has lived and died was fossilized.

I think it is silly to use the fossil record for anything except to show what was around at some time in the past.

What I always wonder, and ask people like FTK, is that why god seems to have stopped. I mean, he came along burnt some bushes, did a bit of re-decorating (teh flud) and then, 2k odd years ago just stopped. Nothing else. From hero to zero. Why?
All this action (to the point of killing all but 8 people on the planet and appearing in person at times) and then nothing at all. If you are going to be a planetary overlord then just disappearing for thousands of years is just not on!

Can't be anything to do with the general level of development can it? I mean, if you lived and died in the same 5 square miles in muddy poverty (or it's worldwide equivlient) who knows what happens thousands of miles away. Could be anything at all.

nah, just chance.

I would like to congratulate you for another deep "psychological" insight (darwinists are not only brilliant scientists but also prominent linguists and psychologists as we see here) but I am afraid you are only projecting your own dismal situation to John and me. But it is O.K. - darwinists project humans relation also to animal kingdom seeing everywhere "struggle for life", "evolution in action" and "mimicry".

Dismal Situation in what way? The theory of Evolution is the accepted explanation for the fact of evolution. It is one of the most well supported theories in science whether you or JAD choose to accept it. I see nothing dismal about that. It's you hand waving types on the sidelines who's current situation is dismal. John IS a joke. He's a joke here, a joke among those actually doing the science and a joke every time he writes another 400 comment single post blog. When you find the strength to remove your proboscis from JAD's nether regions you feel the need to defend his untenable position by failing to address questions posed to you and readjusting the x,y coordinates of those posts generally found on the short sides of a football field.

Icky,

I'd have to say that 95% of all your posts directed toward me had the smell of troll attached.  Why do you expect people to treat you with respect when you confront them with utter contempt in every sentence directed toward them?  Confront people in the way in which you would like them to carry on dialogue with you, and you might notice that the "trolls" don't seem as trollish.

Good luck with finding the perfect "pasture".  Just remember that in this debate one rarely sees a conversion.  We simply cannot fathom how the other side can possibly perceive these issues in the way in which they do.  The better option might be trying to find a way to live with each other without literally tearing each other apart.  

Just a thought...I'll be going back to my blog now to swat at the gnats (ie. trolls).

So, I figured if this question gets its own thread, with no other distracting questions, it SHOULD be easier to get an answer.

So, FTK? Please to give us list now?

Looks like Mrs. Dino is to be sentenced tomorrow. I honestly don't care if she gets actual time or not. I do not think she was a duped wife who had no idea what was going on however it's pretty obvious that Mr. Hovind was the ringleader and held a pretty strong sway over his whole family.

Either way. If she gets time, fine, I'll trust the court. If she doesn't, same, she's still a convicted felon.

The problem you have is that you've been entranced by the anti-science crowd to think that their handwaving is actually evidence when in truth it is nothing but a distortion of the facts in order to comply with the bible.

Jo Hovind, the wife of creationist theme-park owner Kent Hovind, stood solemnly beside her attorney Friday as U.S. District Judge Casey Rodgers handed down a sentence of one year and one day in federal prison.

Jo Hovind, 51, also was ordered to pay $8,000 in fines and three years supervision when she is released from prison.

Hovind was found guilty in November on 45 counts of evading bank-reporting requirements. The same jury found her husband guilty on 58 federal counts, including failure to pay $845,000 in employee-related taxes. He was sentenced in January to 10 years in federal prison.

Jo Hovind’s attorney, Jerry Barringer, said after the sentencing that he plans to file an appeal against the guilty verdict as well as the prison sentence.

I think that is a reasonable idea Wes. I'm just curious who is going to pay us in the U.S.(yes us, they stole the money from the taxpayers essentially) the $845,000 or so? No one. I'm sure any fines assessed on either of the Hovinds will take years to pay back.


Actually I'm curious how fines are enforced. Do the Hovinds have to sell (have it seized?) property to pay back immediately?

So maybe a [mostly] suspended sentence and a much larger fine.

Who knows. She's still a convicted felon either way.

And so this rabid nutcase has been taken up by elements of the American right as a hero and a martyr. William Dembski, the leading proponent of "intelligent design", has argued on his blog that the jailing of Lerle proves that advocating intelligent design would soon also be classed as a hate-crime in Europe, and punishable by jail.

This is because he has been told -- by a far-right website in Brussels - that Dr Lerle was jailed because he compared abortion to the holocaust. He did that, too, and published on his website the names of women who had had abortions, and of doctors who had performed them. But that was not illegal. He was not jailed for being "pro-life" but for being anti-semitic.

The thing is, that I'm not familiar with anything that Lenny has ever said that is so terribly enlightening.  I'm only familiar with him from this forum and comments I've seen on occassion at PT.  From the time I started posting here, he's offered absolutely nothing but snide remarks...virtually no science involved.  So, if he is some sort of science wiz master, I've never been subject to his words of wisdom.

Ian and I have found a private venue in which to discuss various issues further.  

Don't worry, I won't cry martyrdom in regard to my departure.  I'll let Elsberry off the hook so he won't be accused of using the "banninator button".   It's time to go anyway because I've scanned through some of the threads here where other people from my "side" have tried to reason with your folks, and it's futile.

A vandal with a deranged sense of humor from Los Angeles.

Anyway, I'm writing up an email to Verizon abuse asking for their assistance in tracking down their user for publishing false defamatory information about me. Who knows, maybe I can get the joker's internet service yanked, or take it even further.

I'm sure that Larry F. would be interested in this case, if only to make appreciative noises about what the vandal did.

Wes, that IP is very similar to one that a troll named Truth machine uses to post from. With a DSL connection and switching DHCP leases it could very easily be the same one.

Well, that's pretty weird because Truth machine is on the evolution side, but I can also see that because he tends to become unhinged and come down real hard on people. PZ once told him to calm down, and I had an extremely unpleasant encounter with him at Pharyngula myself.

What does Wikipedia do in these instances?  If it is left to you to keep repairing stupid attacks like that, I would simply demand that the page be deleted and kept deleted.

Can Wikipedia be sued?  Can they be shut down?  If not, then there is no protection for anyone being libaled.

Well... anyone can suffer defamation at any time. Your best protection is yourself, standing up against that person (though hard to do when the cretin is anonymous). JAD called me a sexual prejorative at my blog, for example, and I informed him and VMartin that statements about my alleged sexual behavior would be resolved between attorneys if it happened again. Well, that apparently put the fear of his dead god in him, the twit.

Unfortunately, Wikipedia is so rife with vandalism that I corroborate every fact with other sources.

You're right Kristine. I looked back at my haloscan and Truth Machine isn't much of a troll. There was one comment (the only one I read) that taken out of context looked trollish.

My bad.

The IP addressing scheme is very close however.

FtK made a comment in a PM to me about my minions here.

I said that "minion" implied people at my direction, and that I didn't presume that applied.

But I got to thinking just how convenient having some (or even one) minions could be, and thought I'd float that idea.

I'll really try not to be too much of a slavedriver... ask for a bit of transcription here, some online research there, that sort of thing. No making bricks without straw, I promise.

So, how about it? What's the prospect for official minion status here?

One must have some sympathy for Darwinists, because they have painted themselves into a corner. They cannot admit that even a single, solitary aspect of biology is the product of design, or their entire thesis collapses catastrophically. ID proponents, on the other hand, can admit that Darwinian mechanisms play a role in biology, and they most certainly do, almost by definition.

Well anyone with a shred of ability to see this adminstration for what it is knew this was coming.

I do like the fact he only commuted his sentence instead of a pardon. Which means exactly zero.

As I said at my blog

Quote
This is essentially a pardon. He serves no time and he'll never suffer the problems that anyone else with a conviction record like his would. All those Bush groupies will be falling over themselves to give him a job.

OH NO. He has to pay a $250,000 fine!

Right. They'll be plenty of under the table gifts to make that a whitewash. If anything this cements his place as a martyr for the idiot right wingnuts. I bet this increases his sellability in the private sector exponentially.

If this isn't proof that Bush is a joke, I don't know what is.

It's conclusive proof that Bush is a traitor to the rule of law in this country, in my book. I understand that Keith Olbermann will call for the President's resignation tomorrow night.

Bush is just saying he and his administration is above the law.  How did that turn out for Nixon?

Okay, so I'm an optimist.

I love Olberman. (Only in a totally manly, way of course!)

So, will Bush get Worst Person In The World Award tonight, and Libbey The Worser Person Award?  And couldn't Cheney pick up The Worst Person In The World Award pretty much every night?

Per Ed Brayton at ScienceBlogs, there is nothing in the US Constitution that gives him permission to do this.  Very interesting.

http://scienceblogs.com/dispatc....riv.php

Ed is talking about executive privilege, which really has nothing to do with the power of the President to issue pardons and reprieves.  The latter power is codified in Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution.

This is true.  Bush's application of justice here may be capricious, but it is constitutional.  

Bush will (hopefully) pay a stiff political price for this move, and I imagine that it will stand as a primary example of his imperial approach to the presidency.

What's bugging me, though, is the fact that the times he openly flouted the constitution, as with the electronic eavesdropping program and executive signing statements, he wasn't criticized as harshly as he seems to be now.

Well I disagree to some extent. At the time of the wiretaps and such it was the repubs in power but he was still criticized fairly harshly for it. It's just that those in power made it virtually impossible to do anything about it.

These are all just "symptoms" of the president's abuse of executive privilege, the disdain for both the separation of powers and the rule of law. Nixon would be so proud.

Read this. It's a good timeline on the whole deal with Scooter Libby. He was the head of staff for Vice Pres. Cheney who  president Bush just basically let out of an imposed prison sentence of 30 months for lying to the courts. But its much more involved than that.

Please tell me I am wrong here.
The link looks as though somebody upset a politician and so a politically apointed (non-elected) person gave away details of a US CIA agent to upset her husband. Is that correct?
I hope I am wrong as that would be too bad.

It's it's most boiled down form that's part of it yes. It more goes to a pretty serious crisis that we in the US have been having with our President thinking that he is above the law and above our constitution.

It all started with the trumped up evidence that was used to get us into the current war in Iraq. Bush and his cronies didn't like that the fact that someone was calling them on their bullshit. They then decided to out the whistleblower's wife as an undercover CIA agent. This is a big no no.

During the course of trying to determine who the person was who outed Valerie Plame, Scooter Libby lied in court about various conversations, times lines and such, thus committing perjury.

Being in the position he is in and being that our Vice President basically is an evil dishonest son of a bitch who has no use with the law, the President decided to laet him out of jail.

So a desk driving political employee is considered worth more than someone who actually does risk their life in service to country?

Well it's really more about the man who was criticizing the Bush policies and the lies that bush told than about Libby. He just ended up being the fall guy for the whole deal due to his own perjury.

They used his wife (the CIA agent) as a tool to get back at him and to send a message to others who might be critical of the administration that they would stoop to any level to get back at people and to protect their power.

Well, Wesley, Verizon was thorough. I received calls from them today, but I was in my office at the time. I want to let you know it was my computer publicly, before you go and defame me publicly.

But, it wasn’t me that wrote the Trudi Barlow blogs. I am a CPS worker; and the kids I was transporting to a foster home had access to my laptop in my car, while I was being accosted by a drug addict family - while I was making a routine stop trying to save thier kid from them.

I really like you guys and agree with you. I really, really do. I am not a religious person. It makes me sick to hear people say that “God” gave them their children, and purport that they have special rights to their kids when kids are merely biologically representative of their parents in some ways.

There are no god-given rights to birth parents! Every parent should earn their right to parent - and having irresponsible sex does not qualify you.

I feel my position in society is a type of evolution process in itself. I have just been proving this to myself - with your help.

Please, understand. I cannot report the children to you or Verizon because they are minors, and they are therefore protected by juvenile law in California. I would lose my job and get arrested if I did that without a court order. But rest assured, there is a silver lining, all three kids have appointments tomorrow to see a doctor, and my guess is that he will prescribe them Ridalin; no, most likely something stronger. So you won’t have to worry about their deviant behavior anymore.

I am sorry, I should have activated the lock code on my computer. I have the utmost respect for you. You give respect to my profession, inadvertently. :)

For the moment, color me skeptical. For Los Angeles, the editing on Wikipedia would have occurred in about a twenty minute window around 6:30 AM last Saturday. Kind of early morning for CPS to be at work, and on a weekend, too. I just called the number for Indio, CA CPS and got a canned message saying that their hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8AM to 5PM. It seemed to me that the office was closed today, which also doesn’t match up with Torvik’s note.

The ‘net shows that there is a Christopher Torvik associated with CPS in Indio, California. Of course, any agent of CPS is likely to have a does of abuse hurled at them, and the ‘net shows that, too. Now, something a bit more interesting is the rant declaring that CPS is corrupt and inflates its importance via false charges of abuse, implemented through its workers. The rant is posted as from a “Chris Torvik”. Is that a forgery? If not, it seems inconsistent with the comment about “respect to the profession” here.

That’s all right. I’ll enlist the aid of the relevant authorities to sort out the true from the false. If it really was untouchable juveniles, I’m sure that they will let me know that through their own channels.

To be honest, though, I have seen some really inner city people, when I visited my friend in Philly some 20 years ago, that really, really did like a lot like a monkey, or a missing link. I swear to God, but then looks CAN be deceiving.

I’m not trying to be racial or flippant. I saw it with my own eyes. Has anyone else had this culture-shock type of experience (for lack of a french word)? I know what I am talking about is very politically incorrect; but please, can someone expound on this?


My first thought here was to question the whole "never attribute to malice what can be attributed to incompetence" axiom.  To create plausible deniability for his Wikipedia antics, would Chris have someone else post this comment at a time or by a means that would have demonstrably been impossible for him?

The weak link in this whole chain is whether Verizon will release information about their user. Verizon could

1. Do nothing. This one is actually one of the more likely courses of action. ISPs are notorious for not handling complaints about users.

2. Terminate the user's service, but not reveal who they are to me. Again, if they choose not to "do nothing", this is a likely course of action. I have argued against this, but I don't know how much leverage I can bring to bear. It might require the threat of legal action to cause them to do more than this.

3. Reveal the identity of their user to law enforcement. They could turn in their user for violation of relevant computer crimes statutes to an authority without notifying me.

4. Reveal the identity of their user to me. This would be the most useful for me to be able to pursue legal recourse, but is, I think, the least likely outcome without some further interaction.

The odds are that the "Chris Torvik et alia" entity is simply trying to distract me from pursuing getting the data from Verizon.

Wes, in my experience in my job I frequently have to deal with spammers and attacks on our systems. I have reported a number of IP addresses to the ISPs involved and typically they will suspend the account, warn the abuser or the most frequent result is that they acknowledge my request and I never hear anything again.

I have not however needed to get the personal information of the person[s] involved so it is hard to say what Verizon will do. My best guess is they get a large number of requests for this type of information so there probably is a protocol in place. How you would find this out though could be the difficult part.

Can't you see FtK sitting around the house, hysterically overreacting to everything, until finally her daughter looks at her husband, and her husband says "Hey, honey, I wonder what those wicked evolutionists are up to?" And she runs off to the computer room and spends the next 5 hours there while her family gets a much-needed break.

I just got a hilarious picture in my head visualizing that.

It's a good day for Brats steamed in beer, then pan grilled, and topped with caramelized onions.  Unfortunately, this apartment dweller doesn't have an outdoor grill.  I hope others on this board got the charcoal or, even better, wood chips, fired up today.

We made veggie dogs. *Ducks*

Okay, I'm not as kewl as Rev. Chimpy! But I gotta save room for the tequila and beer.

Hi Kristine-

I didn't mention meat specifically in the original post, because you can stay vegetarian and still have a lot of fun with a grill.  Branch out from those veggie dogs when you feel inspired.  

Chimpy-

Great post.  Seeing your toys in action has given me lots of ideas for the wedding registry.

Too bad FtK bailed before she understood the question about the icefish, or read the paper about the genetics of why primates can't make vitamin C.

How close, in your opinion, was Ftk to achieving a rudimentary understanding of these issues?

Honestly from my limited time viewing her nuttyness, she seemed to be regressing. No matter how much was put before her she would go out and find other pseudo-science like her foray into Brown. The more you showed evidence from reputable sources the more she shrieked in fear and ran for the hills.

No no no no no NO!

You're piffling stereotypes of what English food consists of are ludicrous. I might take abuse from the French, but from a nation of people who think that Bakelite is a cheese, I think not.

For example, until last year, the best restaurant in the world was in England. We have more Michelin starred restaurants than anywhere except Paris. Sorry boys, we learned! We also have orthodontists now too.

However, substitute kebab for half a block of cheddar cheese in Lenny's diet plan and you have a pretty accurate description of my twenties.

Louis

I'll have to agree with Louis. While the UK in general has a bad reputation it has elevated it's higher cuisine to the standards the rest of the culinary world is at or shoots for. England's close neighbor Ireland is actually quite the hotspot for cuisine because of the vast variety and proximity of fresh local ingredients that are available.

I love grits.  I usually eat them with liberal amounts of butter and black pepper.  But, I am willing to bet the Right Reverend has a good recipe or two for grits.

Grits are delicious if they're prepared with the right consistency. (They're easy to screw up.) I prefer them with butter and garlic salt.

Traditional English food?

Pork in cider...stews....broths....steak and ale pie...sprats....lamb and mint...roast chicken with stuffing.....bacon sandwiches, hell ALL sandwiches....eccles cakes....cheddar....STILTON!!!!!....beer, real beer, not making love in a canoe beer....pork scratchings...curry(we stole India therefore Indian cuisine is ours)...fish and chips, it doesn't suck so there, add mushy peas and gravy....roast beef, yorkshire pudding, mustard GRAVY, mashed potatoes..........

I could go on and on and on. You can get GREAT English food in many pubs, especially in the new Gastro Pubs which are springing up across the nation. I reckon even in Windsor we could find English food (although I'll grant you know the place better than I ;-) )

Celebrate our English fodder (and this from a Demi-Greek!)

Louis

Lets lay claim to Greek too. Man I love Haloumi. Fried, barbied or grilled.

Anyway. Good food is available in England and who the Hell cares where it originated from so long as it is tasty?

PS. Beer is more important than food and I know of not a single country that such a wide and varied choice as England *flies flag. sings "Land of hope and glory"*.

You'd be surprised at the massive amounts of styles and breweries that are in the us now. Ignore the big swill beers like miller, bud, coors etc... There is a huge craft beer industry here in the states.

Not saying more than england but more than most people think.

The cyber harassment of Wes, and Torvik is a minor issue compared to life or death.  It needs to be stopped without being glorified into a major crime.


Well, sure, go ahead and put it into perspective.

If asked which I'd rather have get identified and have a go-round with our legal system, the guy who burglarized my van last year or the current cyber-libeler, I'd go for the cyber-libeler.

Ya Sure Ya Betcha.  The person who trashed your van didn't mess with you sense of identity.  Nor are they going to be found.

Ed Brayton has posted that he knows I am an atheist and an alcoholic, both accusations are false and potentially damaging to me professionally.  Worse than some pathetic woman's random attacks.

The fact that he deserves no credibility might not matter.

Maybe I should follow Wesley's lead here and try to have Ed Brayton arrested.

That is poor form from Ed. do you have a link?

Google +Hurd +"Ed Brayton" +athiest

or

Google +Hurd +"Ed Brayton" +alcoholic

Ed Brayton is a close friend of Wesley's. I am sorry.  He is also a avid supporter of efforts to eliminate public education, unions, environmental protection and antipollution laws, and civil rights laws regarding equal access to jobs, and public facilities- schools, parks, and restrooms.  

He, and Tim Sandefur, like many "former" Nazis post 1948, will insist they do not support all of the party line.

I am unimpressed. Sandefur's bosses have just scored a predictable victory favoring  racial segregation under the protection of the far-right dominated Supreme Court.

If creationism ever gets back to the SCUS, nobody should expect a repeat of 1987.  The same policies promoted by Brayton and Sandefur are in direct opposition of the 1987 Court.  Dover will be a wisp. The religious right and their "libertarian" tools will eliminate Roe v Wade as soon as it can be evaporated.  These people are as big, if not bigger, enemies of modern liberal society as Behe, Dembski, Johnson, Ham or Hovind.  Add, Bush, Cheney, Libby, Gonzales and the rest of the neofascists.

We are doomed.

I hope I am wrong.

Those bones pics reminds me that one such dish was bone marrow. The leg bones were sawn up, the pieces were grilled or something, and at the table you were supposed to scoop out the marrow and spread it on I believe bread.

That is actually a pretty classic dish. I've had marrow a number of times and it is quite good.

Trust me, LOTS of people make it to 50 without ever dreaming they would.

I don't feel like keeling over from smoking or heart disease at 49 (having a young daughter is a big part of that), but at the same time I'm not willing to spend my whole life jogging 2 hours every morning and eating nothing but bland low-fat high-fiber vegetarian food. (What's the point of a long life, if it's filled with that?) Fortunately I've never smoked, but I do love me some fried food. So you compromise. I try and keep the fats lowish and take meds for cholesterol and blood pressure (hereditary high BP -- thanks, dad!), but I don't jog or work out, either. So what'll that buy me? 77? Cool.

I've known a couple people in academia who made it into their 90's still sharp and still productive (I certainly have enough projects to last me another 50 years) but it is incredibly rare. (For every one of them I can name, I can name ten people who keeled over at 81 after 12 years of idleness and shitty health.) My personal opinion that making it to 100 with all your marbles is so totally a matter of genetic luck that it's ridiculous to deliberately try to make it happen.

Yeah I know I was half kidding. My grandfather made it to almost 90 with all his faculties working at the same level they always did (although a hair slower). Living long and being healthy is a goal, however, liek yuo said I'd like to enjoy the ride.

Sometimes one is tempted to despair that journalists will ever understand even the most basic principles of the philosophy of science.  Then one reads a sentence like this one in a story on the Fox News web site:

“Global warming can no more be “proven” than the theory of continental drift, the theory of evolution or the concept that germs carry diseases.”

That little (very little) light you see in the distance is a glimmer of hope.

Read the article he gott he quote from and then tell me how using that quote and the rest of the article supports him using the ID tag at UD and therefore supports Intelligent Design or even refers to it?


UD when quote mines go bad.

Picked up some Guanciale from the butcher. Will be making something with that this week. If I can find someone with a curing locker I'm going to try making some. WAY to hot and humid down here in SC to do it the traditional way and hang it outside to cure. Might try in our second fridge but the humidity in a fridge can be an issue.

If you've never had it, it is like pork heaven.

I'm hooked on the Noah's Mill bourbon. Drinking it now. Tomorrow off to a concert in Charlotte, many partakings to be had.

If my mom calls, you don't know where I am.

Anyone see Behe on the Colbert Report last night?

Here's my take, with the video.

Behe on Colbert Report

Is it just me or does Colbert seem to know the fallacy behind the mousetrap analogy?  It's hard to tell with his character and what-all but he seemed more non-plussed than usual.

Colbert clearly knows. He spewed Behe's talking points in a way that made them look ridiculous.

I don't know, I got the feeling he didn't really go after him like he does other guests.

Yes, Wesley, you told me not to create new topics.  And the only reason one can figure for that is that you are afraid of my spotlight shining on your anti-creationist activism.  You certainly cannot support your "AFDave isn't a responsible topic starter" assertion.  How many threads did I even start before you restricted me?  Far fewer than other posters with the "correct" POV.  And your own moderator said I wasn't being banned for misbehavior. But that's OK.  Have it your way.  Your actions only confirm my suspicions about you.  And, BTW ... I already AM in the "Pariah" group.  The only reason I'm not banned completely even from the Bathroom Wall seems to be so that you can posture as not having banned me.

Or the more obvious reason is that we have more material to laugh hysterically at.

Dogfish Head 90 minute is pretty good.

One of my all time favorites.

If you like that try the Great Divide Brewery Hercules Double IPA.

You guys did see the links to the Way of the Master videos on his sidebar right? This shit sounds like it came straight out of Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort's heads.

That said, I can’t say I’m convinced that the YEC contingent is wrong. We appear to live in a universe that is governed by immutable physical laws and everything is understandable by those laws. Certainly if we apply these laws backward in time we see an old universe and common descent. Appearances however can be deceptive. There’s nothing that proves the universe, the laws that govern it, and its apparent history weren’t created any time from a moment ago to billions of years ago. Consider that time and space now appear to be digital (pixelated). There is a Planck length and a Planck time. This is strikingly like how computer simulations (artificial realities) are constructed. A master clock ticks and at each clock tick a set of rules are applied and the model is updated from one state to the next. The programmer (or hardware designer) chooses the clock rate and rules that apply. He may change both the rules and the clock rate at his whim. He can also start the simulation running with any arbitrary set of initial conditions. He can also stop and start the model at any time. If we as conscious human beings are constructs inside such a model how would we be able to know if what we observe is real or the machinations of some entity outside the model? All we can do is look for inconsistencies (violations) of the rules that govern the model. So far I don’t think we’ve categorically observed any inconsistencies but since the apparent history of the model, viewed from inside the model, is manipulable by an outside agency we really have no way of knowing if the clock was stopped and the rules were changed and the state of the system changed to make the new rules appear to be the rules that were there all along.

WAD will cut his finger while vigorously typing a fake letter to rebuff the delusionally self perceived attacks by the Baylor cheerleading squad. After noticing the blood on his sweater he will place it on ebay with a starting bid of $10k. The sweater will be bid on solely by bornagain77, davescot and FtK. The bidding will be so furious that it will break single day records on ebay.

The following day, WAD will post on UD and point to the auction's record breaking levels saying it is a prima facie case that Intelligent Design is widely accepted and is gaining popularity. Once ebay discovers that WAD has broken ebay's rules about selling DNA it will pull the auction.

The following day WAD will post that once again ID is being repressed.

when God said in Genesis 1 that living things shall reproduce after their kind, lo and behold this is exactly what we see in the lab and in all breeding (science) experiments.  [prediction again..]
 


Not really sure that counts as a prediction when any and all animals were reproducing at the time that genesis was written. Thats what living creatures do, they reproduce. Any observed reproduction at the time that Genesis was put to paper (bark, papyrus, skin, stone whatever) would appear to only be 1:1 creature to creature.

Why the hell are you even back FtK? Don't get me wrong it's enjoyable watching you squirm but really, why?


Have you ever accomplished anything here? Do you expect anyone to buy your concern troll baiting? You refuse to answer even the simplest of questions (which makes me wonder why I am posting this) and are perfectly happy to ignore any answers given that shoot down any of your wild assertions. Once you are stumped it immediately dissolves into you claiming persecution and pointing fingers at everyone on how mean they are.

It's sad really.

This Joe person seems like such a nice fellow with a lot of interesting things to say to everyone. I'm very disappointing in all of you.

I may tell your mothers.
