I have been reading this thread for quite some time now, and I find it quite humorous. Not to derail Arden's current foray at UD, but I saw this quote and knew you guys would appreciate it.

I’d like to be the first to congratulate Nick Matzke on finding an adversary that makes Nick look well versed in science by comparison. It’s about time. Maybe if Nick starting fisking nursery rhymes for bad science he could appear even smarter than he does now.


First Newman writes nursery rhymes, and is obviously a quack. Dave must have figured that the argument is complete bunk from the get go.

Quote
Update: Awe shucks. It looks like I was wrong. The adversary is Dr. Robert C. Newman who was awarded a doctorate in theoretical astrophysics from (Ivy League) Cornell in 1967. Nick has not only failed to attain a doctorate, he switched his major at an unremarkable school from chemistry and biology to the much more lightweight field of geography. What’s next for Nick, a doctorate in basket weaving from the ITT Technical Institute? Theoretical Astrophysics is pretty much your stereotypical rocket science and far beyond Nick’s meager intellectual abilities. My abject apologies to Dr. Newman for the comparison.


Oh, wait! Did you say that you have a doctorate from a big name school? Well obviously, my first statement was an emotional statement. Now that I have thought it thru, there is clearly some merit to you arguments, Dr. Newman.

*cough* Appeal to Authority *cough* Ad Hominem *cough*

     The question has broader implications than you mention, Dave. If the newly elected board had recinded the policy at their December meeting, prior to the Judges ruling, they would have made the Judges ruling unnecssary. Furthermore, it may have saved the school board some money by doing so. It makes you wonder what behind door conversations might have taken place. It appears that they wanted Jones to rule…but why?

     Also, it appears a motion to recind the policy was made but not seconded at that December meeting. Yet, this was the very issue that got them all elected in the first place. Very curious indeed!!!

I am a computer engineer and was brought to this debate by the ID side trying to convince me that biologists were hiding facts. After some very convincing arguments and actually beginning to doubt the biologist's explanation, I started to do some of my own research.

What I found was that the ID community was primarily driven not by evidence, but religion. In fact the people who originaly tried to convince me of ID (and claimed that it wasn't religious) were clearly very religious people. ID could very well have some good points, but they try to claim things that they cannot prove. Plus instead of releasing studies, often they only released press releases in response to scientist's studies.

Evolution does not make any claims beyond that which they can show within reason. ID activists claim that Evolution wants to make claims about the origins of life, but the evidence for the origins of life is very sparse and the theory of evolution doesn't touch it because it is so sparse. Occasionally someone does some experiements on how life could have intially formed, but as of yet no conclusions have been drawn, and certainly this is outside of the scope of evolution.

After doing my own research I found that ID's view of evolution tends to be mostly misconceptions and strawmen. To me, this is not a convincing argument, and if I may be so bold, it should not be a convincing argument to anyone. The people who believe in ID WANT to believe. Scientists should not allow their emotions to become involved with the search for facts.

As for myself, I attend church weekly, but remain agnostic. I could probably discuss the Bible and philosophy with the best if I were so inclined, but I find that my perspective tends to only brings out anger with some people so I keep it to myself. I have found that no matter how much arguing I do with someone, I'm never going to change their religious views. People have to want to change their views themselves.

I know this is going to lead nowhere. You, afdave, will not change your opinion. In fact, anyone posting on this forum will probably not change their opinion. We have done all the searching that we need to form our opinions, and drawn our conclusions. I think that here are those of us who wish to be told what to think and then there are those of us who wish to draw their own conclusions. Most people on here try to draw their own conclusions (even you afdave). Of those who wish to draw their own conclusions, some try to be objective and weigh all the evidence while some try to do that while also bringing in a belief system, which really isn't proven by any objective means (at this point in history). The latter method isn't good enough for me.

ID does try to address some of the evidence, but due to their belief system they throw out whatever does not fit in. For instance Carbon dating and radioactive decay seems to be a problem for them. Instead of trying to fit their theory around those tools (which is what scientific theories do), they claim the tools are broken and throw them away. The same can be said of the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

The sad/funny part is that for those who actually look into the claims, a lot of times the jumps in their logic/coverups are obvious. With ID proponents, they are actively trying to keep themselves in the dark or are being intentionally disingenuous.

In a nutshell, biologists draw conclusion from evidence, and creationists manufacture evidence from conclusions.

Driving across bridges is another good one.  I always wonder if those engineers that designed that thing were competent.  Can I prove that they had the proper credentials and knew what they were doing?  Maybe, but it would be a lot of trouble and I don't.  Have there been bridges that broke b/c of poor design?  Yes.  But I drive on it anyway ... going on "faith" if you will.

I can see the bridge and observe the bridge's condition. If I wanted I could look up the previous inspection dates and engineering diagrams. And of course I can go and observe people crossing the bridge and make a judgment for myself on the safety of that bridge. I can also go out and stomp on the surface of the bridge to make sure that it is strong. Perhaps I could take smaples of the steel and concrete to analyse their strength. Show me something like that for God. Obviously we don't do this, but we could if we wanted. Because I drive over a bridge does not mean that I should worship your god.
I think a more appropriate analogy would be driving off a cliff expecting to make it to the other side smoothly because the road map (Road Bible?) says that there is a bridge there, even though you cannot clearly see a bridge.
Quote

This is how it is for me with God, and I would have to say that the "God Hypothesis" or the "Creation Hypothesis" is actually one of the best supported hypotheses around.  Does it ultimately come down to faith?  Yes...

Stop right there. It is the best supported hypothesis around? Then you say that it is supported by faith. I actually think that is the opposite of support. You have faith because there is no support.

If you look closely at the picture above, you will note that all the Marines pictured are bowing their heads. That’s because they’re praying.

This incident took place at a recent ceremony honoring the Birthday of the Corps, and it has the ACLU up in arms. “These are federal employees,” says a rumored spokesman for the ACLU, “on federal property and on federal time. For them to pray is clearly an establishment of religion, and we must nip this in the bud immediately.”

When asked about the ACLU’s charges, former Marine Sergeant David Springer, speaking for all his brothers in uniform said (cleaned up a bit), “Screw the ACLU. GOD Bless Our Warriors, Send the ACLU to France.”

NEW YORK, US (AP) -- In the field of Intelligent Design Research today, scientists have announced the discovery of the Jebus. "The Jebus is the irreducible unit of Jesus' love that is spread around the earth to each of us Christians." says Dr. William Dembski.

The Jebus has shown properties of recharging electrolytes during moments of prayer amongst some Christians, while causing burns on radical Muslims. It appears there is no effect on Catholics and members of the more liberal Christian sects such as members of the United Church of Christ.

Noted Intelligent Design researcher Dave Springer was skeptical, "I can't see the Jebus so I remain agnostic, but Thank God we have a rigorous research program to solve this problem once and for all." He then slammed his door as he said, "You're questions aren't in the spirit of this house, you're outta here."

As a computer engineer I have to agree with much of what is said above. Engineers tend to be confident and arrogant. I'm with Wayward Hammer in that I also took Philosophy in college, just three years ago, as well.

My guess is that intelligent design is the product of engineers trying to reconcile their faith with their knowledge. The obvious connection is God's a designer and an engineer. This falls directly in line with their confidence and arrogance. They view themselves on similar terms as God and then the problem just doubles. It's a vicious cycle.

You must have missed this one. See. It appears that we may start having to "teach the controversy" of whether Arc researchers are idiots, liers, or both.

The unusual object is perched on a slope 13,120 feet above sea level. After studying the discovery site, Bonnema observed, “These beams not only look like petrified wood, they are so impressive that they look like real wood—this is an amazing discovery that may be the oldest shipwreck in recorded history.”

Reg Lyle, oil and gas geologist said “the object appears to be a basalt dike, however, it is absolutely uncanny that the object looks like hand hewn timbers, even the grain and color look just like petrified wood….I really need to keep an open-mind about this.”

I think they've realized that some of their "readers" didn't like all the long blocks of text. Getting their ideas across in the form of cartoons seems like the best method of communication for them.

The one thing that is the most (unintentionally) humorous about it is that the message has not changed at all. It's still just making fun of science, as if that proves their argument.

It’s not simply enough that there be an assembly mechanism and assembly instructions. The assembly mechanism also has to be able to “read” the instructions. That means we need to already have in place some type of chemical “language”.

Moreover, all this has got to be hereditable somehow.



Ps - I'm sure this one isn't satire because he's got a Jesustastic website.

There is no way that you randomly guessed that Mr. Rhoda was going to say that, it's far too improbable! Anyone who thinks that you just guessed that he was going to say something like that is only lying to themselves. Clearly you were prompted by God to say what you said.

I envision them like cells, that is, having a membrane of sorts, but that isn’t true, is it? So if we have a body of water, how does each molecule maintain itself next to the others? For how long does it do so?

Comment by avocationist — July 7, 2006 @ 11:15 am


Brilliant. Good thing these people aren't trying to force feed their view of science into the education system. I think the theory that avocationist is looking for is "intelligent molecule holding." It says that some intelligent being is required to hold all the molcules together, or else they will all fly apart. Oh and molecules that fly apart, they are governed by "intelligent molecule pushing." That says the molecules need an intelligent force to push them apart, otherwise they would just stick together.

Without the same sort of preconceptions and prejudgements that characterize Darwinian views (i.e., an unfounded precept that “it can’t have happened”), the science of History–yes History is a science–verifies the reports of the Resurrection, that the physical bodily resurrection of the person named Jesus of Nazareth did in fact occur.

Ancient literature including but not limited to the New Testament histories and the flow of history itself, especially the history of Western Civilization, are inextricably intertwined and unexplainable if the Resurrection did not occur.

Without the blinders of preconception, the Resurrection is a staggering event.

I love this comment by Mung in the thread by DS about how Darwinism is 150 year old lies etc etc:

I am not sure that I want ID to replace Darwinism. The problem with scietific theories is that they are always changing and eventually being replaced. What’s to prevent the same fate happening to ID? We’d need to change something about science itself. It would need to become about “absolute truth.”

So how to we separate ID as absolute truth from ID as science, and prevent ID as absolute truth from being affected by the vagaries of science?

Comment by Mung — July 13, 2006 @ 9:46 am

So, ID is correct, but yet would be replaced by something else?  
So we need to redefine science as absolute truth, effectively freezing scientific discourse at the level at which they are comfortable with?  
Hasnt that already been tried?  
Anyway, my brain hurts, I'm going to bow out for now.

We need to make it so that no one can question ID; We need to make it religion. Ah, but it is...

BTW, could whoever is playing JanieBelle, email me and tell me who you are. I just want to know.

If JanieBelle really isn't a real person, I have to say that not only has she pulled off a great hoax, but the patience she has shown is astounding.

I think the news about the family would be easy to fake, and obviously the lesbian love scenes would be fun to write. But quoteing Shakespeare with Blipey seems to show a bit of research for someone just playing a 17 year old girl. On top of that, sitting through my attempts at describing some evidence for evolution would require some real restraint from someone who knows all about it.

Looking at her comments on UD also look like a real person, not someone acting. Had I been acting, the jig would have been up long ago. If she's not real close to who she says that she is, then I'll be the first to admit that I've been had.

Edit: Maybe I need to be more skeptical...

1. This blog solicits and welcomes vigorous argument, backed by facts.

2. Here we critique the argument, not the person. Therefore, we don’t do personal abuse or cussing.

3. Abuse involving race, religion, social class, sexual preference, et cetera, is a banning offence. We judge people on the strength of their arguments, and expect the same treatment from others.

4. As a moderator, I blog on the site, and will therefore only occasionally comment in the Comments section, usually to remind posters of blog policy or redirect a discussion that has gone way off track. When I do, I will post my own comment.

5. In the unlikely event that things get hairy, we may have to close or remove the Comments section without notice. But if we all cooperate to further a lively and fruitful discussion, that won’t ever happen.

   Very defensive about your inability to answer questions, Dave. You should seek some professional help. They say laughter is the best medicine. You couldn't afford me, but perhaps there are others out there willing to take on a charity case.

   Tagging around behind you? Let's examine what's really happened:

   1. DaveScot is invited to present positive evidence for ID on a new blog

   2. DaveScot fails to do so (there's a surprise)

   3. People (including myself) question him about it

   4. DaveScot decides he doesn't like it when he can't censor comments and claims he doesn't want to talk about it anymore

   5. (This is the only point that is speculative) DaveScot buys a lot of wood glue

   6. Blipey quits asking DaveScot about ID (forgot about that part, right?)

   7. DaveScot breaks his silence by posting a long rant about ID

   8. People (including myself) question him on it

   9. DaveScot, trying to figure out if he can suck his own dick since nobody will do it for him, claims that he isn't talking about ID--all evidence to the contrary (get it? it's a joke--the evidence supports you talking about it, but there's no evidence to support ID. HAHA, you slay you)

   10. DaveScot doesn't post on UDoJ for a while, at least not about anyhting I find interesting.

   11. Due to #10, I don't comment to DaveScot.

   12. DaveScot posts In case you all haven't noticed conservatives have been a majority for the past 10 years. Well, this bears directly on a question I asked earlier about majority rule. I had not brought the subject up until you reintroduced it.

   13. DaveScot doesn't answer question, claims foul, fucks a vodka bottle.

   Nice that series of unfortunate events ended with number 13, huh?

Again in the Mount Rushmore Thread:

Quote

Tom English

“Even we earthlings, familiar as we are with natural processes on earth, do not know how to come up with a reasonable estimate of the probability.”

Yes, we earthlings have. In the case of Mt. Rushmore forming by natural processes we do indeed know how to come up with a reasonable estimate of the probability. The reasonable estimate is zero and it’s arrived at by way of elimination. If you think of a reasonable reason it should be non-zero to a significant degree please give those reasons otherwise through the process of elimination you must agree that a reasonable estimate is zero. What we earthlings don’t know how to do is arrive at a precise probability. There is some exceedingly small chance Mt. Rushmore could be a natural phenomenon but it’s so small there’s no way to give a precise number. Duh.

Comment by DaveScot — August 31, 2006 @ 3:00 am


Thanks for clearing that up Dave. What's the chance of Mount Rushmore being natural? I don't know, but it must be so small that it is not worth calculating. Of course the Aliens would use CSI to figure it out, but we'd be idiots to even try.

Has anyone ever seen anybody give the CSI for anything? I've never looked at Dumbski's books, does he even calculate the CSI for anything? Who else wants to see a double blind for CSI's effectiveness?

That, by the way, is one reason why I have never been enthusiastic about the initiatives taken by various American school boards to warn students away from Darwinian evolution. Yes, yes, Darwinism’s a dead duck. It is promoted principally for ideological purposes, and anti-religious ones at that. In the form of social Darwinism, it has some stinky associates and in the form of persecution of non-Darwinian scientists, it has a stinky history. So I completely understand why the school boards and parents are concerned, and I wish them well.

But , all that said, I maintain my objections for the following reason: We do no favor to students who cut classes to smoke in the can when we act as though they can easily understand problems with Darwinism. These are the same kids who need a calculator to add up a shopping bill, don’t know whether Canada is north or south of the United States, can’t name the three branches of the US government, and are not disciplined for being rude to teachers. I could go on, but why bother?

Same here, SS. I have heard the cat/dog thing, but with other animals.

Yeah, creationism is a bigger threat than a lot of other idiot theories because it is a larger threat (getting into schools) and because it is fairly widespread. I have argued with people who I know to be perfectly rational being about a variety of these issues and by far, the creationists are the most stubborn.

At least with most astrology buffs and moon landing hoaxers, you can get them to admit that it is either just for fun, or they can admit that the possibility exists that they are wrong. Creationists just eventually fall back on, "I ain't no monkey!" How can you argue with that?

THREE KEY DEFINITIONS
Intelligent Design. The study of patterns in nature that
are best explained as the product of intelligence.

Intelligence. Any cause, agent, or process that achieves an
end or goal by employing suitable means or instruments.

Design. An event, object, or structure that an intelligence
brought about by matching means to ends.


So if design is by definition only brought about by intelligence, why do they need to specify intelligent design?

I find very important that the book be pre-released for review on Internet. First, this will allow minor errors to be fixed through woldwide checking (probably also by NDEers …). Second, and most important this could give the book a huge diffusion provided that also the final release could be freely available. I agree that “the labourer is worthy of his hire” but the experience in such fields as computer science tells us that even more hardcopies are actually sold for more and more people like to buy a copy.

Yeah get as many versions as you guys can out there, so that when the next trial comes around we can again show how some words were changed to mask the fact that your new "theory" is just ID in a cheap tuxedo, which is just Creation Science in a cheap tuxedo.

Note: Putting more tuxedos on does not make you look any better.

Sal,
You’re correct. They did mix the names up.

But hey, let’s get back on tangent ;) … how different are the DNA between man and woman? Could it be factually argued that the difference is greater between man and woman, than it is between man and chimp?

In the interest of fair reporting, I would like to quote PZ himself from the title of his response to me:

   PZ Myers is such a LIAR!

   –PZ Myers

I can neither confirm nor deny the veracity of PZ’s title. I merely report what he said.

ID is science, and 'Ova has a firm scientific basis for his assertion:

Genesis 3:14 (New International Version)

So the LORD God said to the serpent,

"Because you have done this,
Cursed are you above all the livestock
and all the wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life."

See? Nothing here about being a cow, but Serp clearly had legs before he was cursed above all the livestock.

I think that's precisely what Sal has in mind, as this later comment states quite explicitly:

Besides, some of you out there who share my ideas about origins certainly believe snakes once had legs!

I don't think that means that they had to have legs, maybe they used to be able to fly.

Here's some snakes that have gotten around the whole crawling on your belly thing. Weeee!

My thought is that cows form chrysalids and then after a short time they open revealing a few hundred snakes. Wow, freaky, That needs to be made into a movie.

Lou, I was just reading through old posts on UDoJ, and I came across this gem where DaveScotDell needs help uploading his avatar.

Humorously, he's still using that avatar to this day. In a way he still is carrying around a mark of his idiocy.

On another note, it is quite weird to read the stuff we wrote under the assumption that you were a 17 year old female. Too funny.

I arranged a googlefight to resolve this situation.

http://googlefight.com/index.p....lossary

I win handily. There are far more glossaries that contain the word diploid without the word parent (by 2:1 margin) than there are glossaries that contain both diploid and parent. Subtract the number on the left from the number on the right to get the number of glossaries without parent in it.


Good one Dave. But I'm confused.

I thought marines were tough.

I guess that also shows that Dembski isn't smart.

Google trends:

"intelligent design"

Fizzling.

Fizzling? What are you talking about? That graph clearly shows that Intelligent Design is infinitely more popular now than at the beginning of 2004.

That sound you hear is Darwinism's Waterloo.

As to Robo being a physics student, hold out hope. Engineering students are often also required to take general physics classes.
