Your position:

I have no idea how life was started and it doesn't matter because it had to be naturalistic ... I just assume it happened without a scintilla of evidence to support it and a great deal against it. (And you call that science)

I have no basis for my theory of evolution as to the enabling mechanism of replication, the genetic code, the complex molecules necessary for the simplest imaginable life form on which my theory and its mechanism of random mutation and natural selection could act. I just don't think about that .. I just assume somehow it happened.

My kind of science mostly rests on unproved assumptions without experiemental evidence, in the face of phantasmagorically negative mathmatical probability because once that is assumed I can then extrapolate the assumption to explain the entire natual world and its operations.

I have no problem with a scientific world view whose entire foundation is unproved, undemonstrated, mathmatically impossible and rails against established scientific laws. In fact I embrace it against all odds and vehemently oppose any explanation other than mine which is no explanation at all but just an assumption.

I would rather have any answer than one which was not completely naturalistic.

I've been reading this thread for a few days, and just had a couple of points to make to evopeach.

1. You seem to have described ID rather than biological evolution, in being an unproven assumption with no evidence to support it.

2. If you are in fact describing biological evolution, and in light of your previous comments, then I can only assume that you are a shamefully ignorant lying fool of the first degree.

Free speech is the last thing the ID cultists want.

ID is simply part of their roadmap to setting up a fundamentalist theocracy in the USA.

If anyone dared to stand up and suggest that the designer might actually be aliens, Allah, Odin, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster instead of the Christian god, you'd have them screaming their heads off non-stop.

Why not stop lying when you deny that ID isn't religion and that all you want is the truth taught? That way, you might at least appear to have courage in your convictions. Perhaps you ought to reread the bit in the Bible where Peter denies Jesus three times.

First despite the ID distancing themselves from NEC and holding to a purely unnamed designer in word, text and now under oath

My word! They lie under oath about God not being the intelligent designer? Something tells me he isn't going to be too happy about that when the ID people reach the pearly gates. "Thou shalt not bear false witness" and all that...

you're paranoia and rediculous illogical fears ( setting up a theocracy.. how stupid can you be)  .

Go and read the Part Robertson and Jerry Falwell websites. It's all there in black and white (unlike the 'evidence' for ID, of course).

you now commit another illegality, the assumption that people are guilty of your accusations by some form of mind reading ... that they are conspiritorial liars willing to purjure themselves in print and before the courts without a scintilla of evidence to support your claims

It's a statement of fact, not an assumption, I'm afraid.

You mischaracterize ID

Pot. Kettle. Black!

I can honestly say there is nothing to support the idea that any scientist would alter activity of observation, innovation, copying. altering one whit under the alternative approach of assumed original design.

Why should they when ID has not one whit of true evidence?

If the American people are so uneducated, ignorant and behind the rest of the world is it God's providence that we are the most developed, generous, wealthy, advanced in science and technology the world has ever seen. Is the puny, starving, begger, backward and obscenely immoral old Europe or moslem mid-east or North Korea or Russia your ideal model for America. Is the 46% of Americans who want ID taught  the minority cult you speak of... laughable.

Will you stil be saying that when Europe, China, India, Japan, etc, overtake you in the sciences?

And I really wouldn't get to carried away with the idea of America as 'God's own country'. I can pretty easily point out some major problems with that.

egomaniacal atheists and agnostics as the representing the official philosophy of our country.

Egomaniacal atheists and agnostics? Ah, at last you come clean!!

I never said 400 scientists don't believe in evolution. Rather there are 400 who publically state they do not accept neo-Darwinian theory of muation and selection as an acceptable explanation of the life we observe.

How many of those scientists are biologists, and what do they believe to be an acceptable explanation?

Anyway any person skilled in critical thinking knows that Conclusions from Popularity is a severe logical fallacy. (I can give you references if you like)

But the Conclusion from Popularity is one that ID supporters like to use, given the 50%-66% support that ID gets in polls.

The problem is that whatever you call it, ID will find a way to attack it.

One popular claim by the ID/creationist fantasists is that evolution has never been observed in the real world and/or that it's only been demonstrated under laboratory conditions by 'immoral atheist' scientists.

So let's see if we can come up with a counter argument that involves easily demonstrated examples of evolution in everyday life. Here's a few to get the ball rolling:

1. The most notable and significant example (to us): Superbugs. Germs that have evolved partial or complete immunity to antibiotics.

2. Warfarin resistant rats. Warfarin is a common rat poison that kills them by stopping their blood clotting. Of course, quite a few rats have now developed immunity to Warfarin.

3. Mice that have developed to exist in extremely cold environments. Mice living in places like freezer rooms have been found to have developed extremely thick coats to deal with the sub-zero temperatures.

Anyone with any other examples?

Can somebody perhaps tell me why it's amoral to think (1) that complex organisms had ancestors or (2) that an organism will be very similar to some of its recent ancestors, or (3) that organisms with extensive similarity of some part of its DNA probably inherited that from a common ancestor? (and the greater the similarity, the greater the probability thereof.)

Because the Holy Bible says otherwise.

Sources please.

The entire ediface of evolutionism is about finding excuses for immoraity.

Again, sources please.

Since if you no Almighty God to answer to, it follows that you can act in any way you wish.

Sadly, even God's words in the Bible doesn't make Christians act in a Christian way. They were forbidden to shed blood, so instead they got round it by putting people on the rack and finding similar loopholes. Or how about the bishop who said "Kill them all. God will know his own." when asked what to do about the population of a town that had been captured and had quite a few Christians living there.

This especially true of the sin of sodomy, the unholy communion of the Darwinian faith. How else can you explain that almost all of the so-called "Christian" evolutionists are Catholoics? That is, they belong to a church where Christian ritual has been exposed as a front for this most germane and heinous Darwinian act.

And here GoP finally leaves all semblance of reality behind and bravely wanders off into a twilight world of X-files like fantasy.

 Yes, and the evos are doing their best to make sure that little indiscretion never happens again. See the journal's statement.

Did you actually read the article?  
"Meyer's paper was not published in accordance with the journal's established review procedure."
And you might look at the AAAS article it links to as well.

 Besides, I think the Behe-Snoke paper also qualifies as an I.D. paper.

So the number of peer reviewed papers has suddenly doubled. I still don't think they'll bring the scientific theory of evolution crashing down, somehow.

 What are our schools producing nowadays? Hint: look near the front.

I don't know what American schools are producing these days, but I'm not optimistic if they're still fighting over the validity of evolution. Please enlighten me.

 Well, there's My Struggle by some German fellow. What was his name?

By Christ, I really hope that you're not suggesting that a terrible perversion of the theory of evolution by an evil lunatic to justify the extermination of an entire people is what the theory of evolution is actually about.
You think that the scientific establishment would like to be connected to the Nazis?

Also, does Godwin's Law come into play at this point?

This must explain the utter bliss and peace that reigned during the secular 20th century.

The 20th century wasn't exactly 'secular'. It's only in the last 30 years that religion has declined, at least here in Europe.
And can I point out that we're now in a new religious war, with Osama Bin Laden/Al Qaeda thinking that God wants them to destroy Western civilisation, and George Bush thinking that God wants him to invade Iraq.

If you're too persistent in arguing against the party line PT admins will begin deleting your comments without warning or explanation. In my case they also disemvoweled comments but I think they stopped that because it can't be hidden.

A normal reaction to having comments that have broken no rule deleted is to change your name so your comments aren't targeted by who wrote them. As soon as you do this and they figure it out they match up IP addresses and ban you for breaking the rule about using multiple screen names.

It's actually, in every case I've seen, a matter of Panda's Thumb admins being the first to break the rules. They break the rule about comment integrity first and then when a rule is broken in response they ban you for it.

If they weren't lying about all this I wouldn't give a shit. It's their blog and they can ban whoever they want. It's the lying about it being an open forum that annoys me. It's not open to persistent disagreement.

This might sound off topic, but given that the issue revolves around a scientific discovery that people interpretate diferently, I think that a carefull analysis of the evidence presented by both sides might be helpful. Let people see the claims from both sides, and let them decide if the evidence confirms one theory or the other.

ID evidence in it's entirety (as against 150 years of evolution research):

1. We think it looks designed. Therefore it is.

Russ makes a key point in comment #5. In the interview I linked in comment #1 Phillip Johnson is asked what he brings to Darwinian theory as a professor of law. Johnson is an expert in the logic of argumentation, and as such offers scrutiny of the rhetorical, logical, and apologetic devices used by advocates of blind-watchmaker Darwinism. Johnson is, after all, an advocate by training and experience, and he knows all the tricks that are used to manipulate people and pull the wool over their eyes in making a case.

Knows them? He uses them on the ID/creationist crowd!!

This is what Darwinists fear, evidence and logic, so these two foundational precepts of science must be repressed at all cost when it comes to origins. Religiously committed blind-watchmaker Darwinists are in a transparent state of panic, because logic and evidence contradict their creation story, which is foundational to their nihilistic faith.

I've managed to refrain from posting at UD for a while, but this post by TinaBrewer was too good to ignore. No doubt it'll never see the light of day there, but it was good to post some pent up opinions.

"Dr. Dembski you are proving yourself very adept at painting the enemy."

Being a general waste of space, Dumbski isn't good for much else.

"How about putting some intellectual energy into actually responding to the points he makes?"

Methinks you give him too much credit. It's about the only thing he and his little toady DaveSpringer can only do the one thing they're good at, ie character assassinations and mud flinging.

"Does it really satisfy you to use him as a poster child?"

Of course it does. It distracts the rabble at this wretched excuse of a blog from noticing that he's intellectually and morally bankrupt. Note the recent purchase of the 'evidencefreescience' domain. Apart from squandering money that could be used in the ID research program (What research program? Hahahaha), it sums up ID to a T if you remove the word 'science' or add the word 'pseudo' in front of 'science'.

"What is the point of posting someone’s opinions and then failing to respond meaningfully to them? It is just a gesture of self-righteousness. “look how bad he is. we are so much better!”

Have you really not noticed before now that the bogeyman of 'Darwinism' that is deployed daily on this sad little website is responsible for every last little evil of today's world according to Dumbski and his stooge DaveScot, and that before 1850, life was perfect in every way?

"Sorry, Tina, but I’m not going to take the bait, tempting as it is."

I bet you can't. Because that would mean doing some science. And let's face it, why go to all the trouble of doing some actual work when you can piss, moan, lie, post hoax emails, stay just on the legal side of slandering people, and other such charming activities?

You'd think that the big ruckus that went on in Dover about the Pandas text with subtle name changes from creationism to ID would teach Dembski not to openly discuss these things.  Of course, maybe he still believes ID won't need another name change in a few years.

Luckily no one on UD, even Dembski, is too bright. Just look at the way they keep letting slip what their agenda is (rants about atheists, the first amendment being the only thing stopping ID from replacing evolution) despite doth protesting too much that it's not religion. If they ever wised up, we might have a problem.

This analogy can be taken in so many ways. While the Visigoths helped speed up the collapse of Rome, they certainly offered no alternative struction to replace it, and thus we had the Dark Ages.

If Darwinism is on the verge of collapse as is so often started on this blog, where does that leave us? And is there in fact solid evidence that this is the case, or is this just a much-desired assertion based on popular opinion? Let’s be a little scientific here, if Darwinism were to collapse, what would be the predictable signs? For example, would Universities stop teaching evolution classes? Would there be statements by prominent evolutionists (and preferable non-religious ones such as Dawkins) that declare that evolution theory is incorrect? So far I haven’t see these things occur, or maybe I’m not looking in the right place?

And if Darwinism is a defunct theory, what exactly do we now teach? After all most IDers do accept common descent don’t they? And didn’t most of the scientific work around common descent in fact come from the evolutionist camp? Does ID theory alone have enough substance to fully replace evolution wholesale? Are the IDers then going to throw out the baby with the bath water, or is there going to be an acknowledgement that there is an overlapping body of knowledge that both the ID and evolution sides agree on? I think doing so would be a very good thing — acknowledging what ID and evolution have in common could help not only mend fences but allow for a more constructive dialog between the two groups.

Every once in a while, I think: " Ah, what the he11, these guys are doomed to obscurity anyway, due to their lack of valid and demonstrably science-oriented ideas," then some ass like Dembski calls the FBI on Eric Pianka, or depicts a guy like Kevin Padian as a Ku Klux Klan member--or some fucknut says shit like  
" The only predictions it seems capable of making is that the biology departments at american universities will continue to dillegently work toward the destruction of our Christian America and keep us all crying and moaning over our poor treatment of rapists, murderers, child molesters and filthy arab terrorists."
about Darwin, who was the most mild of men, and his theory.

Then I recall why I despise these liars like DaveTard and Dembski. The mere fact that Dembski allows a scumbag Muslim-hating idiot like Dave Scot Springer to control the content of his board...well, that's sufficient to show their aims.

I've certainly learnt to despise fundamentalist religion.

There's an article in the Guardian today about televangelism in the States and how it's taking off here in the UK, along with other unattractive elements like megachurches. Pat Robertson and his ilk remind me of nothing so much as the moneylenders that Jesus drove out of the Temple.

I want to make a plea to Design Theorists like Bill Dembski and others. PLEASE GET TO WORK.

He's right, they've gotta do some work. I mean, how long is it since the last ID book was published??  ;)

What are these people so angry about?

Beats me.

After all, Dembski makes a living creating farting flash animations     writing books    putting Darwinist heads in vices destroying evolutionary theory!! *snigger*
You'd think he could show a little gratitude to Darwin for keeping him fed and clothed!

Of course, I could have gone with the "Big ASS Beer" usually a 64 oz. Bud Light. :)

Why would anyone want to be seen in public with a normal bottle of love in a canoe beer, let alone a 64oz bottle??

Instead she argues that Darwin must have been a racist because he was a British Toff, which is racist in itself. But if all "British Toffs" were racist as she claims, why single out Darwin for special treatment?

There's been a lot of coverage on the 200th anniversary of the UK abolition of slavery in the last week or so. Apparently Erasmus Darwin, Charles grandfather, was one of the leading figures in the abolitionist movement.

Does it feel to anyone else that ID is now mostly an historical event?

Pretty much. Dead as a threat to science education anyway.

Until the next smokescreen for getting fundamentalist Christianity into science classes pops up.

Pure creationism is dead in the water, and ID may be too. But as long as someone can convince people that they're standing up for Jesus, then they'll get the funds to "teach the controversy!"

Even had the IDers won in Dover, they would have lost the appeals. Just like the anti-evolutioners have lost every OTHER Federal court case they have ever been involved with.  Every single one.

Sure, they lose in court every time. But they soon pop back up with a new story.

Sheesh. Behe just destroyed Levin. Behe is polite but in my opinion, nobody does a better job of utterly demolishing Darwinist pretensions than Behe.

Yes, he made such an impression at the Dover trial. Why, I still can't work out how he unarguably refuted something like 57 papers on the evolution of the blood clotting mechanism and gave Darwinism it's Waterloo!  :D

Right, let's give this thread some class and get another Londoner into it.
