Tard Alert!

Bob O’H, I own three Blogger blogs, each of which supports a book, present or proposed. I am paid to blog at several sites and volunteer blog or guest blog at others. It is a congenial way of life for a freelance writer.



OK, she won't tell me, but let's try and work it out.  Her three blogspot blogs are
http://collidinguniverses.blogspot.com/
http://post-darwinist.blogspot.com/

Then she also posts at

Pardon me for being direct.  I don't post often, but I am amused when scientifically, philsophically and theologically untrained persons opine on science philosophy and theology all at once.  These people often hit the tridefecta, so to speak.

So, assuming this is a genuine question--

   
Quote
What would you take as evidence?  


An answer to the following question previously asked of you would be a good start.

   
Quote
Pick a single thing. Anything. It's up to you.

Show us

a) What ID or creationism predicts regarding that.
b) What "evolution" predicts regarding that.

And then show us why the answer is more accurate for A then B.

For example.

A global flood.

Creationism predicts that fossils will be found all mixed together due to the flood waters being chaotic, but with filtering by size (smallest to largest) when they settled and fossilized.

Evolution predicts that fossils will be found in chronological order, not size order.


How say you?

We know full well what ID is and isn't.


As a lifelong atheist/agnostic, I resent the implication that ID and religious creationism are the same thing....Almost all proponents of ID do in fact have a religious agenda and they must be stopped from disseminating their ideology in public schools. .

Http://www.charliewagner.com


Got it.

You think creationist have polluted the real ID.

Evenif that's true, scientists who correctly pointed out that ID=creationism shouldn't have to then clean up the mess.

The solution is clear.  Take your problem to the Discovery Institute.   They were the ones whe pooped in the punchbowl.  If they really want to clean up the problem, they can separate the fruit juice from the floating bits.

I want to present an entirely new view of the universe.  One that is compatible with Newton's, Einstein's, Schrödinger's, Dirac's and Maxwell's Laws, Theories and Equations.  It is based upon subspace particles, spinning singularities that are infinite on the insides and small on the outsides.

Here's a theory that is simple, understandable and not buried under a ton of mathematics.  Besides explaining physics there is an explanation on how life began.  Its all in the subspace.

I've spent 40 years on this quest and I will give you what I know on this web site.  If you want to support me, buy my books.

But when people say these things, they're mostly talking about one or two religions practiced one or two ways, not all of "religion."

What is "watered down deism"? Buddhism - which in its esoteric form postulates no deity at all? Taoism? Contemplative Christianity? Hinduism? Shinto? The religion of the people of Madagascar, who believe that humans are descended from alligators, and that their spirits move into monkeys after they die? Get my drift?

It frustrates me how inexperienced with diversity most fundies and many atheists are. Why not invite some Shinto priests to comment? If the project is not working, maybe that's because its focus is too narrow. Many religions are not about doctrines, but about experiences.

If Christianity and evolution are irreconcilable, let's look for the reason for that and ask the real question: is Christianity compatible with other religions, and if not, is Christianity compatible with reality? That, in my opinion, is the essential question for Christians. Our society is changing, and this is really about how we handle change. Evolution is just the flashpoint. This country is really, really naive about other religions, and therefore creationists should not even be talking about "science vs. religion."

My attitude is: No one should criticize as impossible the actions of those who seem to be doing the impossible. If I observe Christians who are good scientists, and I have, then I accept the reality that they have achieved this reconciliation. I didn't care for Ken Miller's last two chapters of Finding Darwin's God, but I also think he didn't have to write them as he doesn't have to answer to me on religious matters, as long as his science is sound and he doesn't use religion to stop inquiry.

If this country can get past the anti-evolution/anti-science/anti-change stance, then the atheism vs. "religion" debate can turn into what it should be, a game of verbal tennis.

If people have to "choose" between their faith and science education, then they also have to "choose" between their faith and any education at all in our increasing diverse culture. That's why when fundies call me "intolerant," I just laugh my ass off; I've actually met the people they want to convert. There is no generic religion or concept of God. Not at all.

One official Catholic Church position on evolution is set out in a document called "Imago Dei"  (Man in the image of God).  This document was sent to, and approved by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict.  It is pretty much as "official" church teaching as it can be.

The money paragraph very succinctly summarizes common descent and common ancestry.  For non-biologists it's quite good.

Text:offical Vatican Website

Here's the Catholic understanding of evolution, from the document:

"According to the widely accepted scientific account, the universe erupted 15 billion years ago in an explosion called the “Big Bang” and has been expanding and cooling ever since. Later there gradually emerged the conditions necessary for the formation of atoms, still later the condensation of galaxies and stars, and about 10 billion years later the formation of planets. In our own solar system and on earth (formed about 4.5 billion years ago), the conditions have been favorable to the emergence of life. While there is little consensus among scientists about how the origin of this first microscopic life is to be explained, there is general agreement among them that the first organism dwelt on this planet about 3.5-4 billion years ago. Since it has been demonstrated that all living organisms on earth are genetically related, it is virtually certain that all living organisms have descended from this first organism. Converging evidence from many studies in the physical and biological sciences furnishes mounting support for some theory of evolution to account for the development and diversification of life on earth, while controversy continues over the pace and mechanisms of evolution. While the story of human origins is complex and subject to revision, physical anthropology and molecular biology combine to make a convincing case for the origin of the human species in Africa about 150,000 years ago in a humanoid population of common genetic lineage. However it is to be explained, the decisive factor in human origins was a continually increasing brain size, culminating in that of homo sapiens."

A pretty good "layman's" description--So Floyd cannot argue that the Pope is somehow confused by evolution.  Maybe he wants to argue that the Pope is not Catholic and maybe bears shit in special Yellowstone outhouses and not in the woods.

Floyd Lee equivocates as prophesied:

"...biblical Christianity..."

As opposed to other kinds of Christianity?  [See e.g., Catholic position above]

Can we just define "Biblical Christianity" as "Floyd's personal beliefs?"  and "Non- biblical christianity" as Catholic, Methodist, Episcopalian, Lutheran and Orthodox?"

Unless you restrict yourself to "typical" "orthodox" Christianity as distinguished from yoru uh-"unique" beliefs, you have simply invoked the "No True Scotsman" fallacy and meaningful conversation must end.

By "evolution happens", does the Pope mean "microevolution happens", "macroevolution happens", or both?  Without specifying things further, you can't be sure what Pope means there, and therefore your (3) may not necessarily follow from your (1) and (2)


Well, he accepts common descent and common ancestry that would include micro and macro evolution. He rejects YEC.  That pretty much covers it, don't you think?

Here it is YET AGAIN;

According to the widely accepted scientific account, the universe erupted 15 billion years ago in an explosion called the “Big Bang” and has been expanding and cooling ever since. Later there gradually emerged the conditions necessary for the formation of atoms, still later the condensation of galaxies and stars, and about 10 billion years later the formation of planets.

So the pope is pretty clear there's no conflict.

But wait there's more.

The Pope holds a doctorate in Theology.  He had been a professor  of theology for over twenty years and held the position of chair of the Department of Theology at the university of Tubingen, probably one of the most prestigious positions it its possible to hold as a professor of theology.

I say this because I think the Pope knows quite a bit about Christian theology and has the credentials to back up his opinions.  The Pope, as been repeatedly noted, rejects your so-called conflict.  The previous Pope, also a bit of theologian in his own right, rejected the so-called conflict succinctly, "Truth cannot contradict Truth."

You, Floyd  I don't see similar credentials at all.  You don't' appear to have the academic qualifications to discuss the fine points of Christian theology at all.

In fact, it's pretty clear to me your knowledge and understanding of Christian theology is weaker than your understanding of evolution, if that's possible.  You seem to be very unclear regarding Christian theology. I don't think you even have a clear or accurate definition of "Christian."

Let's start over:

Define the essential core beliefs of Christianity for us.

Might I suggest the Nicene Creed?

Born, raised still consider myself catholic though slouching towards atheism.

Good science is good science.  That's all I care about.  That's all I want my kids taught in science class.  I don't care about the tone of those who object to creationism and all its pomp and circumstances.  I'll stand next to PZ and say "go get'em!"

I'll talke no personal offense at any "militant" "strident" or any other kind of atheist for two reasons.  First, they could be right.  Second, a lot of my co-religionists talk out of their asses and have no idea what they are talking about and deserve to be mocked and ridiculed.

I personally think that scicence and religion are not 100% compatible.  But there are degrees of incompatibility.   YEC is a load of crap and is comepltely incompatible.  Soft theisic evolutionists who accept evolution and somehow have done internal gymnastics to reconcile that with religion are a lot less incompatible.  A few kind and understanding words in their direction like so:

 
Quote
On teaching evolution in schools, atheists and believers should stand united. On religion, let us all be honest. I think that the debate as to how a believer can reconcile science and religion may, handled correctly, pull in more believers toward theistic evolutionism.

Has anyone heard from the journal about this?

Ironic that Casey is complaining that the news of the retraction was broken by people her before the author was notified, if EN&V is now breaking this news before giving the journal a chance to put out its public statement.

I've tweeted Ivan Oransky of Retraction Watch (and Reuters), hopefully he'll follow up.

I stumbled across this yesterday when my Google Alert for "Intelligent Design" activated.

There was no other mention of this on the internet and the publication itself seems silent.  Of course, I believe nothing from EN&V without independent verification from knowledgable and honest sources, but I've heard nothing so far.

I'm wondering if there had been a "nuisance settlement" and the DI let confidential terms out of the bag.  Often such settlements are limited to a public announcement of "Neither side admits libaility, we did nothing wrong and we won't do it again."

It won't be the first time that the DI suffered a self inflicted gunshot wound, requiring a podiatrist's attention, in legal proceedings.

Still, it should be news that a journal rescinding an article would be sued and then pay $10,000 to the aggrieved author.  There are significant First Amendment issues at play that should have attracted attention.

It seems as though you asked for an operational definition, then got one, then later found out what kind of dynamic structure would be required for such a phenomenon to exist, and have since gone on a rant to eviscerate yourself from the position you are in.

Apparently, it wasn't clear to her what his argument entrails.

That's my gut feeling as well.

Is that colon intentional?

I hope there's not going to be another nested pun-fest. I couldn't stomach that

(Here incorporate AtBC policy on nested puns as an appendix to the above.)

That would be quite a tract.

I villi think this is not a good idea.

Butt colitis get on with it.

My reflux is not to ruminate on this tripe.

Is this the right time to point out that the ID folks should spend less of their time in theorizin' and more intestine?

Maybe we should spleen that to them.

Bile means keep on with the alimentary witticisms. This must be that polyp fiction people speak of. Don't let it get too serosa, though.

Just duodenum others as you would have them duodenum you.

Maybe at this point we should liver be?

Naah, we just need some authoritative advice on how to deal with it. I'm sure the Army can supply a G.I. Tract on the subject.

That's it? Shit.

That's right.  What he means is the Army can supply a Jack Shit Tract - rather than a Jack Chick Tract - because that's what they really know about anything.

What gall.

I don't find this conversation at all humorous.

I don't know about you, but it boweled me over.

Me too. But I find it all rather hard to digest.

Pfft. I see that my own comment on this got skipped over. I'm gutted.

You don't need to get anal about it

I thought there were strict forum rules about this sort of thing. But I see you've rectum

Don't be an ass. This isn't Sunday stool. (Oh, how will we ever eviscerate ourselves from this pun cascade?)

It's got its own omentum

With a fistula of dollars.

It's all alimentary really. The turds over at UD are only half way through the canal. They would be more reproductive waiting for the second coming of Godot.

It's a problem with epistemistalsis.

Yeah they're born again constipationists.

OK, enough is enough, pretty soon you'll just be making fart and 'number 2' jokes.

Broom handle --> rectum: GO!

With friends like those, who needs enemas?

Provided you and your friends are deutorostomia.

Why do I feel the need to take a (golden) shower?


Crap, urine real trouble now

Coppedge will be available to start as soon as the judge issues his ruling.  I'm on pins and needles.

“I’ve asked some really good lawyers and nobody knows the answer,” Becker said. “One lawyer told me it’s as long as he wants to take. It could take a year, two years.”


Really good lawyers, eh?  What, unlike himself or the flacks he normally hangs around with?  

Really, really, like, good, lawyers.

I assume the judge could rule against Coppedge with no comment.  Simply, "no, go away."

For anyone out there with experience in these kinds of wrongful termination cases, is Coppedge typical?

Yes, the judge could rule against Coppedge with a simple "judgment for defendant."

If the plaintiff or defendant requests a "Statement of Decision," then the judge must prepare a written opinion goign into some detail.  Most judges know how to write these to bulletproof them on appeal.

Under California law, the judge must render a decision within 90 days after the case has been submitted.

Reading between the lines in the linked article, Becker has continued to submit post-trial briefs, essentially re-setting the 90 day clock.

I suspect that's why JPL is not filing a response to his latest--they don't want to re-set the clock any more.

The judge also has the power to prohibit further filings.  I do not know why the judge has not done so in this case.  Most judges I know would have cut Becker off by now and rendered the decision.

"the PSC award banner (that is only for award winners) is there so that no matter how well you think you're doing (making it seem that you know better than everyone else) the how-to community most knowledgeable in what else is around already made it clear what they think about it, and you cannot change that."

Could I have this translated into syntactically correct English, please?  Perhaps a complete thought will then emerge.

I'll try to explain it another way.

......

This theory does not meet expectations because of it not having been considered that a Theory of Intelligent Design would have to come from a place like Planet Source Code where what is most important is the source code, perfect grammar optional.

....

Only makes sense it would not come from somewhere you're not used to, that you here need to be to really get around in the science being pioneered. It's here not just the opinion of the community that I am showing it's where the theory is from where it's not at all a new thing that out of the blue arrived there, the Intelligence Generator did well too.

Hopefully that better translates why meeting expectations that the theory must be judged by its peer-reviewed lab journal published results is rather pointless. It becomes a way of making it seem like it's a crime for not instead having brought lab results to someone just being pompous.


Yes.  Thank you.  That clarifies things immensely.

I now understand what we are dealing with.

Shades of Kitzmiller, I'll bet the judge simply plagiarized the defense attorney's findings.  I smell conspiracy!


Correctamundo!

"Becker — who declined to comment beyond his written statement — contended that by “rubber-stamping” JPL’s proposed judgment, and not issuing a thorough written ruling of his own, it would work in Coppedge’s favor going forward."

Actually, no it doesn't.  Judges routinely "rubberstamp" the winner's proposed judgment.  That's why the winner is known as "the winner."
