STJ---above,describes a consuming illness at the house of ID.
Yes the Tweedle brothers are quite mad, little willy and Riechs Fiend dSS, the Ministerialdirektor at the Dumbskipropagandasylum seem both to suffer fromNarcissistic personality disorder.
Sadly Count Billious Von Dembstern was beaten by his vicious sadistic pater, or was it mater?, probably for doing too much math homework and all the while his submissive and godfearing mama said that gad really did exist and all this was his doing. Well our little willy was not going to let THAT happen again He was going to decide what g0d wanted and no amount of lying(by his mother or him) is going to stop him. dSS, Herr Sychophant, plays the idiot savant (without the savant) second fiddler completing in an ill fitting  dress and loud lipstick for a little of his grandnesses smooth glances.
Reminds me of a hilarious scene from an old Cheech and Chong movie where they play a South American Aztec God and his sychophantic off sider dSS has used a direct quote out of it. Can't find the exact reference tho.

So if you want me to convert, you might try the calm, rational technique, rather than the "Rant/Rave/Rotten Tomato" technique


Oh yeah? Convert to what? Rational thinking?From what ?
For someone boasting about how tough they are, you seem to be remarkably thin skinned.
The old 'turn the other cheek' is not a call to to behave stupidly in the face of cognitive dissonance it is a method to ensure the so called faithful don't change their minds when fed to the lions, as a cult forming technique it is almost perfect and drives the lions owners mad with rage, which destroys from within ,as the old pagan Romans found to their chagrin. If they had taken more notice of the psycho politics they would have stolen the idea for themselves....oh right ...Emperor Justinian did just that, with one caveat....Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and the bishops can have the sheep's brains. The call by JC at his sermon on the mount not to insult people needlessly follows a similar thread, not a postmodernist political correctness to act with sweetness and light promoting mindlessness or mendacity but a method to claim the moral high ground where the attacker discredits himself by his projected anger, a central theme in Zen too BTW. In JC's case he should have listened to his own words when he took on the money changers but then he was nothing if not a radical, a point completely washed from history in today's Fundamentalist churches. In other words the Fundies are much more concerned with materialistic wealth and a desperate grasp for more (material and converts) at the expense of those outside their belief group, that the actual message of their figurative head is conveniently forgotten and obscured by a whole raft of ancient ideologies rationalizing ignorance,war and pillage.
Take the redefinition of 'materialism' itself, old JC said it would be tougher for a rich man to ...etc etc.... was against it. So what do the Fundies do ? Redefine the religious constraint against actual materialistic greed to actual natural material. The Catholic church is partly to blame here , how can you justify owning more land, bricks, mortar, and vast incomes for thousands of years all the while suppressing natural knowledge?....easy make nature evil and god outside of man and they get to say what the one true word of god is and HE doesn't like natural materialism (but not good old mammon..god forbid). Pity the renaissance removed the church as the commercial center of society and could, indeed needed to independently fund science. The late 1800's Fundies were a reaction to modernity and the rise of power of the secular state  so they replaced rationalism and the new mechanical understanding of nature which they confused with the new  mechanistic  role people had to play in society to survive, as though they were machines with a call to a higher power ..their own, very seductive to a disenfranchised lower class and strangely to their robber baron masters . What better way to explain ones position in relation to a higher power if authority is removed from those very  classes who resent modernity stealing their lives. The meek shall inherit the earth? Huh? After the Priests and Kings have collected their cut the meek will get what they #### well deserve, as they have always  done since Kings ,Priests, CEO's and elected reps came into existence. When the recontructionists morphed that 'higher' power into an old testament dictator, material nature became their religious  enemy (again ...predictably) and all was justified by their simple minds ( and their target audience)  promoting a crude redefinition of reality...no serious person gives them any credit except for cultural engineering on 'pods'.

Don't bother airboy in my bar we don't need sissy's ,you're just not brave enough, its dangerous out here and you just don't have what it takes. So swig the soma and live in ignorant bliss and when you die, you know what?

A gap or your saying so is not a god or a proof, just thought I would let you know that.

God is not provable because there is no objective proof for its existance and by definition does not exist, other than by human subjective thought, end that and even the subjective existance disapears as have thousands of dreamt up thunder,sea,sky,snake,female,male gods since man climed down from the trees.

Pity the animal rights people have set the bar higher and the lower mammals are now not allowed to be baited for human entertainment. We could clean up.
Let’s see... what has the uncommonly dense asylum actors troupe performed for us through the bars?
1)The humor of political correctness performed while being indistinguishable from a pompous fascist.
2)The pathos of vanity and folly causing unintentionally irony while  being perfectly inconsistent, coupled with the incongruity of their own perceived seriousness…irony in it’s truest sense.
3)THE FUN of seeing dumb city boy proper WASP clones mistake common sense with the effects of an opiate....they don't need big silly shoes to seem like they can barely stand up.
4)A parody on the last supper .....Eating crow as though it were fine French cuisine flushed down with Dover whine made from tears of DI Martyrs
5)A history lesson.....Proving Voltaire right long after his death.
6)A literature lesson ......Making  Beckett’s and Orwell's work seem like it could have been written yesterday.
7)A lesson in humility….Dang…. I mean sarcasm.
8)The Ultimate lesson......Making Finnegans Wake  (the version without the apostrophe) intelligible in the sense there is nothing new under the night and the dreams of language makers.
9) So lets drink to the accidental entertainers and hope the never-ending mirth they supply will never let this list be completed….perhaps they could make the whole thing Open Source and then I could play it on a game boy…nah….. then it would be predictable…

yeah Ghosty reality has a liberal bias tuff
but even better humor has a liberal bias

St Peter decides to take the day off to go fishing, so Jesus offers to keep an eye on the Pearly Gates. He is not sure what to do, so Peter tells him to find out a bit about people as they arrive in Heaven, and this will help him decide if he can let them in.

After a while, Jesus sees a little old man with white hair approaching who looks very, very familiar. He asks the old man to tell him about himself. The old man says, "I had a very sad life. I was a carpenter and had a son who I lost at a relatively young age, and although he was not my natural child, I loved him dearly."

Jesus welled up with emotion. He threw his arms around the old man and cried, "Daddy!"

The old man replied, "Pinocchio?"

What are you trying to do half a Dave give the guy a bad name? He wrote children's stories and was not much of an expert at anything else including morality and the universe, as if there were such a thing. Next 1/2 a D will be saying eating vegitables and invading 3rd world countries to steal their oil is immoral and against God's will because the universe sets the rules...sheesh
Yeah 1/2 a D manifest destiny is written in the stars....... in Portuguese French perhaps?
By the way there are more French words in the English language than in the Portuguese language and the 'official' French Language of today  originally came from the Germanic Frankish court/legal system and it was only widely spoken all over France displacing regional dialects around a 100 years ago so are you going to say that Portuguese is a Germanic language perhaps half a Dave?
Oh thats right you don't even understand English.
Have you even studied another language?Oh yeah

abyss ** and raise good old me up to be your right hand man dishing out morality to all the angels"



**(The  underworld described in Greek and Egyptian mythology was Nietzsche's  and Dante's (oh and half a Dave's) abyss. Those stories described with easily decoded metaphors commonly understood in their day, something largely lost today unless through scholarship, recognizable milestones for ones progress through and hopefully out of the abyss. Fairy tales for adults . A sort of journey through the psyche, the inner journey as Campbell and Jung described, not unlike tempory schizophrenia i.e. rearranging the brain to function in the real world. The journey through the underworld AS STORY was the treatment in those ancient times. Campbell's take on the  The Egyptian book of the dead (and schizophrenia) is a very interesting read if anyone is game)

If G...er the Producer/Prehistoric Genetic Engineer wanted to zap primitive replicating life into existence why bother creating a non living world devoid of life in the first place?
Heck maybe he was autistic and just got the joke, 3.5 or so billions years later, that a world without life was not going to have them (other gods one presumes) laughing in the aisles. That's the half a Dave denial, to accept an old earth is an anathema for that obvious reason. The big g... HAS to do it all at once otherwise his is redundant


Then on the other hand if rocks and water are living things an old earth is feasible, since those six days were just billion year days, give or take a day or two and the magic of a very, very slow learner for a god is perfectly explainable, that's the CarolC scriptural revisionism school of creation.
If life and rocks are the same thing any magical thought is real, including healing crystals, the restorative powers of old Elvis memorabilia, and psychic surgery.

Different agendas, corporate power vs people power, differing visions, no agreement yet. In other words a huge project and everyone talking past each other and not understanding and perhaps not wanting to understand the other, each claiming to have a legitimate and final authority. It doesn't stretch the imagination too much to think that such a project in the ancient world claimed a kingdom or two's treasuries with competing architect priests and imported workers building a proto pyramid or ziggurat for ...ah the usual reasons....the glory of priests and kings.

What the heck are they complaining about? They got their hands on the wheel of the most powerful nation on earth, its practically a crime to be an atheist in public life, effectively shut down teaching evolution and the real enemy for them; the method by which the closest thing to truth can be determined, by omission, seen the rise and rise of consumerist religiosity posing as Christ's ideal (what camo uniform would JC wear, would he buy a laser gun-sight unit made in China? .....as a personal god you understand), and after all that with the world at their feet .....they project nihilism....well of course, maybe now they are starting to wake up......the Bible and previous other tomes of wisdom has the answer as an historical observation. "He who God wants to destroy, he first drives insane". Or He who ignores the obvious will be left without a leg to stand on....nihilism a dangerous tool in the wrong hands.

Here's my reply to that

Apologies to Yeats

What rough beast slouches off to Baghdad

The Second Coming

W.B.Yeats


TURNING and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight:  somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Baghdad to be born? .

Well, well, well.
How revealing 1/2 a D 'claims victory' shades of MP's Black Knight there is no finer example of a deluded mind denying facts, reason and honesty.
The other observation I have is the methodology employed by 1/2 a D vs the 'crew'.

It would seem that everyone except D/2 did some basic research and did not overstep their own ability. How in this day with so much information available on line, one could honestly make such a mistake lead me to conclude that D/2 is more mendacious than ignorant.

Considering we are graced with the presence of a PhD in linguistics whose knowledge, skills, professionalism and yes one could reasonably conclude proven honesty in the field of linguistics due to his qualifications; I for one would not be rushing to claim 'victory' over a foolish statement based on listening to kitchen conversations with my family and friends and one tiny snippet of European history.

It's clear to me D/2  has not the faintest knowledge of the history of language development and does not seem to have studied first hand any Romance Language.
I studied Latin and French at high school for 3 years and would not rush to make any such claims.

However, I would claim that one can not truly understand ones own language without studying another related language. The structure of my mother tongue, English was completely opaque until I found that Latin and French use different object,subject,verb structures masculine and feminine forms, verb conjugation, just to name the trivial differences. Seeing the Latin root word and it's French and English cousins and the subtle shift in meanings, in the raw if you like, help with forming a more sophisticated world view of history and cultural imperatives.
Particularly with regard to understanding what a world view actually is.

As someone once said “We know water was discovered by someone or something but we can be very sure it wasn't a fish”.

1/2 a D is literally swimming in ignorance, that is, a lack of even a basic education in western culture and I would argue an impotence in acquiring any useful knowledge simply because he lacks the ability to critically examine any information regardless of its sources.

Why? Fundamentalism does not test the truth you are told what to think, just take orders and execute like a good soldier, no critical thinking needed or desired, in fact it is crushed and removed from the adherent WHEN THEY ARE CHILREN by professional lying liars.

The scientific method and its test for truth (Darwinism) is Fundamentalism's enemy and is thus the enemy of education,knowledge,truth, honesty and mankind's collected wisdom.

1/2 a Dave is just Fundy cannon fodder, he's had his brains turned to mush.

He is incapable of telling himself what is true and what is not, because he believes a lie is true.

Anyone spot the obvious here regarding Portuguese oui?
from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O%C3%AFl_languages
Quote

Langue d'oïl is an Old French term meaning language of oïl—i.e. language in which the word for "yes" is oïl.

The medieval Italian poet Dante in his De vulgari eloquentia wrote in Latin: "nam alii oc, alii si, alii vero dicunt oil" ("some say oc, others say si, others say oïl"), thereby classifying the Romance languages into three groups: oïl languages (in northern France); oc languages (in southern France) and si languages (in Italy and Iberia). Vulgar Latin developed different methods of signifying assent: hoc ille ("this (is) it") and hoc ("this"), which became the langues d'oïl and langue d'oc (or Occitan language), respectively. Subsequent development changed "oïl" into "oui" as in modern French. (Other Romance languages derive their word for yes from the Latin sic, "thus", such as the Spanish sí, Italian sì, or Portuguese sim.)

Modern linguists typically divide the languages spoken in medieval France into three geographical subgroups: Langue d'oïl and Langue d'oc are the two major groups; the third group, Franco-Provençal, is considered a transitional language between the two other groups.

The Oïl languages in their range from Belgium across northern and central France and the Channel Islands form a dialect continuum.

The language generally referred to as French is an Oïl language, but the territories of France have for centuries included large groups of speakers of Oïl languages other than French, as well as speakers of languages outside the Oïl language family (see Languages of France).

Although there were competing literary standards among the Oïl languages in the mediaeval period, the centralisation of the French kingdom and its influence even outside its formal borders sent most of the Oïl languages into comparative obscurity for several centuries.

Septic - with the highly original I'm jealous of Darwin theme...which by his own judgment is again not very useful to this discussion.

And Septic what is that ....ahem discussion?

Since the kind folks here suggested you  go here http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/comdesc/ and actually find an original objection on which you could focus since you claim to be a scientist and all.

A philosophical objection identical to the Deceiving Idolaters perhaps ?

Fine ....so drop the evidence/facts/honest science and concentrate on the relativist ethics of the Idolaters.

I'd like to do the same .....since contra-Theory of Evolution education activists actually encourage a serious hard look at those ethics.

For instance.
Why do claim that your objection to the ToE does not need positive confirmable evidence?
Why is your claim not merely a semantic juxtaposition of words with emphasis on an emotional appeal to ego?
Why do your ethical standards not include arguing from ignorance as an unethical presupposition?
Why do religious ID supporters behave unethically and how are they any different to your behavior here?

Yes Septic lets not update our knowledge on a subject where you blatantly disregard the parts you don't like and just attack it on feeble grounds without any properly considered honest evidence. Why would that be? Everyone who has tried has failed? Doesn't leave much *except* an attack from ignorance does it Septic?

I agree with you 100%

Septic unconsciously projects that he is again not very useful to this discussion.

0+0=0

Oh...and by the way Septic thank you for reading the above with a righteous up curled lip I'm sure it hasn't had the slightest effect on your dishonesty, I seriously doubt that you have any idea what that is. One thing I DO KNOW is that to call oneself a scientist requires more honesty than you have shown so far.

Now come on Mr “I'm not buying the ToE” mention something relevant to this century. Darwin didn't read Mendel who the F### cares?

Then ALL other intervening evolutionary scientists are dismissed because they can't say god and not RM+NS EXPLAINS why we got here.

Yes STJ (7th Viscount, Baron V.Fish) writing too quickly as usual.
Note: Myth not in the colloquial sense of an untruth. But as a story explaining some deeper human truth.
I should have said that the source of public  Myth was the collective unconscious expressed as retold dreams according to Jung.
Job wresting *all night* with "God", even waking up with bruises all over him, is the perfect example it's right there in the text as plain as day.... er except it wasn't day.... so Job didn't actually see god,. Today you would say  he just slept on the problem, he had and came up with an answer suitable for the collective unconscious of his tribe.
Joyce's Finnegans Wake is *all dream* told in the language of dream the -subconscious revealed- over just one night.
Jung off the deep end?...well I agree ...probably dealt with too many people with psychosis I find his stuff unreadable for more than a short time.
Groff with his LSD influenced patient documentaries are incredibly revealing and it is amazing the same motifs come up over and over in Myth.

Something like the V2 the D/2 is launched vertically at birth and kept in a state of sublime ignorance on a ballistic trajectory that reaches a region of subspace where a partial vacuum boils off reason for a period of several years. Cosmic radiation sterilizes the neurons responsible for creative thought and once the device returns to the earths surface a zombie chip is quickly inserted as soon as the device opens its mouth. These devices perform such a realistic rendition of a human that normal 'earthlings' fail to recognize the automaton however the loud whirring of a preprogrammed mechanical brain are easily recognized when the correct buttons are pushed. When that happens the re-entrant script is started and a predictable  stream of evangelizing commences, the script is unmodifiable and no new information can be inserted into the script except by pastors with the correct key..unless they are Pastors themselves..in which case go back to line 0.

D/2 u unit

look up argumentum ad nauseum

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argumentum_ad_nauseam

It is a form of circular reasoning used by intellectually dishonest people such as yourself.

Quote
Ad nauseam is a Latin term used to describe something that has been continuing "to the point of nausea." For example "This topic has been discussed ad nauseam": it has been discussed extensively and everyone has tired of it. It is a form of proof by assertion.

Argumentum ad nauseam or argument from repetition or Argumentum ad infinitum is the false proof of a statement by (prolonged) repetition, possibly by different people. This logical fallacy is commonly used as a form of rhetoric by politicians, and it is one of the mechanisms of reinforcing urban legends. In its extreme form, it can also be a form of brainwashing. In common usage the statement "A lie repeated often enough becomes the truth" is often used to allude to the same concept, which self referentially has been attributed diversely to Lenin, Goebbels, Hitler and Stalin among others, when little evidence can be found to support most of these historical figures having said this.

Modern politics is fraught with examples of argumentum ad nauseam, and wide acceptance of many policies and perspectives is driven in part by the endless repetition of slogans. The exercise of argumentum ad nauseam can be widely observed in the distribution of "talking points," which are collections of short phrases that are issued to members of modern political parties for recitation to achieve maximum message repetition.

16 Biblical ways to aquire a wife

Find an attractive prisoner of war, bring her home, shave her head, trim her nails, and give her new clothes. Then she's yours. -- Deuterononmy (Deuteronomy 21:11-13)

Find a prostitute and marry her. -- Hosea (Hosea 1:1-3)

Find a man with seven daughters, and impress him by watering his flock. -- Moses (Exodus 2:16-21)

Purchase a piece of property, and get a woman as part of the deal. -- Boaz (Ruth 4:5-10)

Go to a party and hide. When the women come out to dance, grab one and carry her off to be your wife. -- Benjaminites (Judges 21:19-25)

Have God create a wife for you while you sleep. Note: this will cost you a rib. -- Adam (Genesis 2:19-24)

Agree to work seven years in exchange for a woman's hand in marriage. Get tricked into marrying the wrong woman. Then work another seven years for the woman you wanted to marry in the first place. That's right. Fourteen years of toil for a woman. -- Jacob (Genesis 29:15-30)

Cut off 200 foreskins off of your future father-in-law's enemies and get his daughter for a wife. -- David (1Samuel 18:27)

Even if no one is out there, just wander around a bit and you'll definitely find someone. (It's all relative of course.) -- Cain (Genesis 4:16-17)

Become the emperor of a huge nation and hold a beauty contest. -- Xerxes or Ahasuerus (Esther 2:3-4)

When you see someone you like, go home and tell your parents, "I have seen a ...woman; now get her for me." If your parents question your decision, simply say, "Get her for me. She's the one for me." -- Samson (Judges 14:1-3)

Kill any husband and take HIS wife. (Prepare to lose four sons though). -- David (2 Samuel 11)

Wait for your brother to die. Take his widow. (It's not just a good idea, it's the law). -- Onan and Boaz (Deuteronomy or Leviticus, example in Ruth)

Don't be so picky. Make up for quality with quantity. -- Solomon (1 Kings 11:1-3)

A wife?...NOT!!! -- Paul (1Corinthians 7:32-35)

Become sinless, and die in atonement for others, and you can marry a whole bunch of people. -- Jesus (Revelation 15?)

skeptic when you only have a hammer the whole world looks like a nail.

Skeptic throws hands in air , ducks run off with them.

Male Med student to girl friend :
"Today I learned that love is just a bunch of hormones running around in my head"
Girlfriend :
"See I told you it was real"

Skeptic a house is not a hammer nor is it created from or by a hammer or even wood and nails, ancients did quite well without, it may contain those things but a house is an entity in itself. Equally comparing an autonomous living creature and the reproductive process with inanimate objects lacks sophistication.
There is a time line with every living creature that can be observed forward  and backward (as recorded history) in the wild, in any case our observations are  ALL history, time does not exist except as a concept, however existence itself JUST IS right now in THIS moment, by definition .
For Evolution to be useful it must provide some value, that value is; that new discoveries can be categorized without tearing up the already existing explanatory template and assists in identifying future areas of investigation, just like assembling a jigsaw puzzle.
Evolution as it is understood is like a huge jigsaw puzzle with a great many parts in place and a great many more from widely varying  scientific disciplines  waiting to be fitted.
The rules so far proposed work fine. The picture (proof that the rules work) at this stage is quite clear and is as easily recognizable  as your mother or Marylin Monroe (if it was say a half completed picture of MM) . In other words we don't need to assemble the whole thing to see the obvious.
None of the parts have copyright by god on the back, sorry.
Don't forget dynamics...work and use of energy in other words. Wouldn't want you to starve :)

The Evolutionary Hammer is the gene, they actually do the work and they 'know what to do', without them life would not be built.

Every house and living creature has a history even if it can't be all found, no gods needed.

When I said if you only have one skill set and one tool to deconstruct a living entity I meant that it does not leave much room for actual thinking and creating reality with thought, which like it or not, is how your world view is created.

If you are complaining that not enough is known about chemical interactions in living organisms then why not do the same with non living entities, it could keep you employed for years.

This pattern has continued; that anyone who is a biochemist SCIENTIST could make the absurd and semantically meaningless remarks about the fundamentals of chemistry SCIENCE.


Missing fossils?

Pseudoscience appeals to the truth-criteria of scientific
methodology while simultaneously denying their validity.

Wagons in a circle ?.....pffft

Pseudoscience appeals to false authority, to emotion,
sentiment, or distrust of established fact.


Pseudoscience displays an indifference to facts.

Pseudoscience is indifferent to criteria of valid evidence

Pseudoscience relies heavily on subjective validation

Pseudoscience deliberately creates mystery where none
exists, by omitting crucial information and important details.


Pseudoscience argues from ignorance, an elementary fallacy.

The beauty of the creationist is that given long enough they manage to make clear their agenda whether they are aware of it or not, including faux skepticism and a seemingly holier than thou concern for an ad hominem free debate, when in actuality their whole debating tactic IS ad hominem i.e. against validated human knowledge collectively

Yeah Rilke I was going to perform the trivial task of analyzing sckeptic's Cynic's past nonsense for creationist boiler plate..... his approach denies the possibility of knowledge. I knew there was a bunch of it but as you have pointed out ...perhaps it accounts for all of his arguement.

From:The 10 Commandments of Helping Students Distinguish Science from Pseudoscience in Psychology


 
Quote

Second Commandment
Thou shalt distinguish skepticism from cynicism. One danger of teaching students to distinguish science from pseudoscience is that we can inadvertently produce students who are reflexively dismissive of any claim that appears implausible. Skepticism, which is the proper mental set of the scientist, implies two seemingly contradictory attitudes (Sagan, 1995): an openness to claims combined with a willingness to subject these claims to incisive scrutiny. As space engineer James Oberg (see Sagan, 1995) reminded us, we must keep our minds open but not so open that our brains fall out. In contrast, cynicism implies close-mindedness. I recall being chastised by a prominent skeptic for encouraging researchers to keep an open mind regarding the efficacy of a novel psychotherapy whose rationale struck him as farfetched. However, if we foreclose the possibility that our preexisting beliefs are erroneous, we are behaving unscientifically. Skepticism entails a willingness to entertain novel claims; cynicism does not.

Third Commandment
Thou shalt distinguish methodological skepticism from philosophical skepticism. When encouraging students to think critically, we must distinguish between two forms of skepticism: (1) an approach that subjects all knowledge claims to scrutiny with the goal of sorting out true from false claims, namely methodological (scientific) skepticism, and (2) an approach that denies the possibility of knowledge, namely philosophical skepticism. When explaining to students that scientific knowledge is inherently tentative and open to revision, some students may mistakenly conclude that genuine knowledge is impossible. This view, which is popular in certain postmodernist circles, neglects to distinguish knowledge claims that are more certain from those that are less certain. Although absolute certainly is probably unattainable in science, some scientific claims, such as Darwin's theory of natural selection, have been extremely well corroborated, whereas others, such as the theory underpinning astrological horoscopes, have been convincingly refuted. Still others, such as cognitive dissonance theory, are scientifically controversial. Hence, there is a continuum of confidence in scientific claims; some have acquired virtual factual status whereas others have been resoundingly falsified. The fact that methodological skepticism does not yield completely certain answers to scientific questions?and that such answers could in principle be overturned by new evidence?does not imply that knowledge is impossible, only that this knowledge is provisional. Nor does it imply that the answers generated by controlled scientific investigation are no better than other answers, such as those generated by intuition (see Myers, 2002).

Oh and fossils dSS? how long does it take to fossilize a dead animal or human?
Even if they survive scavenging and weathering it is almost a miracle we have as many as we do, you have seen what happens to dead animals on an African savanna have you not?

In the time scale from the first cave art we have the actual (non-fossilized) bones from burial sites complete with jewelry, weapons, pottery, not to mention camp fire remains, middens (trash heaps) etc way before your DI-Creationist bosses even think the earth came into existence.

It seeks to RE-categorize and explain material reality.

I know I have been through this before but "Don Quixote" by Cervantes the "Heart of Darkness" by Conrad and "Lolita" by Nabokov talk of mans lust for pagan material Gods/goods (to those men there is no difference), a crushing desire to possess, which causes suffering for the protagonist and those around them.

Those writers were not just writing about an abstract idea, their inspiration came from their own experiences with living breathing people they met. Their vast life experiences when informed by the great stories/myths of previous generations coupled with a cold hard eye and  their own considerable artistic talents allowed them to relate universal themes through their stories. Part of that talent is to overcome the barrier of language as dogma and allow the reader to experience the drama from within the story. In a post literate world TV and Movies take that role and the big stories are replaced with soap advertisments, it would seem religion is headed that way as well.

Those universal themes go right back to pre-biblical times the Sumerian/Egyptian/Greek/Indian-Bhagavida
Ghita
tales are not actual history, they are the normally hidden unconscious dreams,fears and desires of mankind expressed as stories and the hardware that caused those stories has not changed since those times.

If you were magically transported back to ancient India with a babelfish  
translator and told those ancients about a group of people thousands of years in the future who had an idea for a god that fiddled with nature but couldn't say how or that none of them could prove  existed and when each of them are asked could only provide differing stories, I'm pretty sure your ancient listener could quote a similar story(no prizes for guessing which one)

It always impresses me when the likes of Salvador Cordova pop up and seem to play out one of the characters in those stories mentioned above ...how some things never change.

Salvador the Sancho Panza of the ID movement has the the job as the harlequin Russian fool(who seems to survive in the heart of the ID movement by not knowing what’s going on around him) on Kurtz-ski's quest for ivory (the pagan God that is so worshiped by Dembski and other whites) in the dark heart of Africa/mankind (take your pick).


My guess is that neither the Russians nor NASA are in any danger of hiring a fool for an engineer on any space station any time soon.

You have not yet developed that ability.

Why are you arguing on subjects way out of your range when you are the worlds foremost expert on the Portuguese language?

Surely to be so authoritative and scholarly  in fields other than Portuguese would require a whole lifetime of study.

And since your lifetimes work HAS made you the worlds greatest Portuguese-ist
don't you think that claiming to be something other than  the worlds greatest Portuguese-ist is a case of severe HUBRIS not to mention MALPRACTICE and incompetence?

Stolen from somewhere else

Top Ten Signs You're a Fundamentalist Christian

10 - You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.

9 - You feel insulted and "dehumanized" when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

8 - You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Triune God.

7 - Your face turns purple when you hear of the "atrocities" attributed to Allah, but you don't even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in "Exodus" and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in "Joshua" including women, children, and trees!

6 - You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.

5 - You are willing to spend your life looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth (few billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a few generations old.

4 - You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs -- though excluding those in all rival sects - will spend Eternity in an infinite #### of Suffering. And yet consider your religion the most "tolerant" and "loving."


3 - While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in "tongues" may be all the evidence you need to "prove" Christianity.

2 - You define 0.01% as a "high success rate" when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

1 - You actually know a lot less than many nonchristianss do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history - but still call yourself a Christian

Do you like Dogs AFTarget Drone ?? (on and on and on)

A Truly incredible dog

This fundamentalist Christian couple felt it important to own an equally fundamentally Christian pet. So, they went shopping. At a kennel specializing in this particular breed, they found a dog they liked quite a lot. When they asked the dog to fetch the Bible, he did it in a flash. When they instructed him to look up Psalm 23, he complied equally fast, using his paws with dexterity.

They were impressed, purchased the animal, and went home (piously, of course). That night they had friends over. They were so proud of their new fundamentalist dog and his major skills, they called the dog and showed off a little. The friends were impressed, and asked whether the dog was able to do any of the usual dog tricks, as well. This stopped the couple cold, as they hadn't thought about 'normal' tricks.

"Well," they said, "let's try this out."

Once more they called out to the dog, and then clearly pronounced the command, "Heel!"

Quick as a wink, the dog jumped up, put his paw on the man's forehead, closed his eyes in concentration, and bowed his head.

You disregard any evidence that you don't like, not on it's merit, but on how you 'feel'.

Of course not ONCE THE BEAST HAS MATED its all over sunshine!



"The Second Coming" by W. B. Yeats

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.


Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of "Spiritus Mundi"
Troubles my sight: somewhere in the sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Skeptic asked:

Is there an evolutionary basis or justification for religion?  Just a thought.


In my opinion there are tribal/family survival justifications for religion/mysticism/politics/social organization

Was religion the result of a survival need?

More particularly was there an advantage to be had by creating a tribal 'reality' a super ego that allowed the group to function as though there was an 'overseer' who the members of the group always thought was there even when the tribal leaders were not. Instructions could be carried out beyond the purview of the creators of that reality(The chief and his propaganda minister/priest/shaman).

Since the actual thing that sets us more apart from other animals is our ability to 'read minds' a necessary function in social animals. Other social animals do the same, anyone who owns a dog will tell you they can read your mind. However add sophisticated language and the whole thing can be a very powerful method of social control.

Add to that the very long time humans are children before they reach sexual and mental maturity. So to make full use of our brains and to fulfill our ability to reproduce a massive amount of social engineering takes place.

Or did the process of creating religions come as the result of our brains co-opting a previously developed successful evolutionary trait in brain development such as masculine hunting or warfare, feminine nurture and gathering.

I'm sure a case could be made for some sort of co-development of language, story telling/ mythology. Thought control in the individual and group by our abilities in abstract reasoning. In other words 'religion' came about by default as a natural extension of being social animals.

We can see how ancient religion started by studying the remaining stone age hunter gatherer cultures alive in recent history. A good example would be the Australian Aborigines. Their initiation ceremonies can be traced back thousands of years. When the first white settlers landed in the 1790's they documented those ceremonies which around the Sydney area involved removing one of the initiates top front teeth. Skulls were discovered with the same feature, that from memory ,were 10,000 years or older. The initiation ceremonies (the modern descends are the  Bar Mitzvah, Christening) are a symbolic link with the tribes ancestors where childhood is officially ended in no uncertain terms and the boy is 'transformed' into a man by losing part of the body 'to the ancestors' as a blood payment. Note the child in those societies was physically transformed by scarring, tattoos, circumcision etc and that was to parallel the mental and physical transformation to adulthood. Serious stuff. If you tried to skulk out you would be forced to comply or at best ostracized or worst killed.

In fact the ceremony involved the boys 'godfathers' re-enacting their  own initiation at the ceremony by dancing themselves into a trance and at the end would fall to the ground and spit out a ceremonial bone shaped to take out the initiates tooth. The payment is non-negotiable and with that payment the rewards are inclusion ...oh and for the boy permission to take a wife.

Neuroscience I believe is not much further now than Darwin was around 150 years ago however the field has vast potential to uncover a deeper understanding of how we act under social constraints. There is an interesting study of the growth in size of brain activity when tests were done on people that involved acts of trust. Look up [URL=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4397269.stm]US scientists say they can tell whether one person trusts another, by using a brain scan. [/URL

Will neuroscience make religion obsolete?

Not as long as the ancestors are watching.

Quote


(from http://zenoferox.blogspot.com/2006/04/so-much-smarter-than-you.html)

Once upon a time in Prague .........
Berlinski goes to Prague University to lecture on Tychnoff's theorem, a sophisticated result from topology. One of his hosts is Professor Swoboda, a mathematician. “Swoboda is extraordinarily intelligent,” Berlinski tells us. Please remember these things. Berlinski is giving a math talk attended by an extraordinarily intelligent mathematician. Here is an extended quote from the middle of his narration:
     
Quote

I am supposed to talk about Tychonoff's theorem, but to my surprise I find myself explaining the elementary calculus to a roomful of mathematicians, re-creating in my own mind the steps that Bolzano took in order to define continuity. For some reason I feel it absolutely crucial to explain how the concept of a limit is applied to functions. No one seems to mind or even notice.

“A function indicates a relationship in progress, arguments going to values. Given any real number, the function f(x) = x2 returns its square, tak? ... In go arguments 1, 2, 3, out come the values, 1, 4, 9.... As the arguments of f get larger and larger, its values get larger and larger in turn.* ... Now imagine,” I say, “arguments coming closer and closer to the number 3, tak?”

I walk back to the blackboard and show the men in my audience what I mean, writing, 2, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, ..., before the function.

“What then happens to the function? How does it behave?” I ask, realizing with a sense of wonder somewhat at odds with the hard-boiled pose I usually affect, that a function is among the things in this world that behaves—it has a life of its own and so in its own way participates in the drama of things that are animate.

“I mean,” I say, “what happens to the values of f as its arguments approach 3?”

I look out toward my audience. Swoboda and Schweik are looking at me intently, their faces serene, without irony. It is plain to me that they do not know the answer yet.

“They approach, those values, the number 9, so that the function is now seen as running up against a limit, a boundary beyond which it does not go.”

Swoboda leans back and sighs audibly, as if for the first time he had grasped a difficult principle. The room, with its wooden pews and narrow blackboard, is getting close.

I say, “The concept of a limit, as it is applied to functions, is forged in the fire of these remarks.”


There's more. Much more. But enough. Can you explain this passage to me? Berlinski begins by admitting he is talking about elementary calculus, but then has his roomful of mathematicians rapt in awe as he reveals that values of the squaring function approach 9 as its arguments approach 3. College students would not be surprised by this result, let along a roomful of mathematicians.

I presume Berlinski intends this as an extended metaphor, because otherwise he is cruelly mocking his Hungarian Czech colleagues. The point of the metaphor, however, is completely and entirely lost on me. His absurdist account continues with yet another elementary limit. A moderately competent Calculus I student would dispatch it promptly and math teachers could do it in their heads, but Berlinski presents it to his audience with drama and mystery. The mathematicians leave the seminar at its conclusion and trudge down the street, exhausted. “Their tread is heavy and tired.”

I know how they feel.

His projection of his high school angst as an uber nerd must have seemed to him the ultimate 'I got even with those jerks' but you guys missed the best bits.... T&A.

Berlinski on Berlinski: What Trees Does He Plant?
http://blogcritics.org/archives/2006/04/05/131034.php



Berlinski accepts the mantle of DI Fellow, one suspects, because they're willing to pay him the sycophantic homage he believes is his due. He's on record as saying that the idea of Intelligent Design "Theory" doesn't interest him much. In the linked "interview" he describes his attitude towards it as "...pretty much what it has always been: warm but distant. It's the same attitude that I display in public towards my ex-wives." The fact that Berlinski has had wives is somewhat more surprising than the fact that he has a collection of former ones.

their posts convey that characteristic combination of pustules and gonorrhea that one would otherwise associate with high-school toughs, with even the names--Sir Toejam, The Reverend Lenny Flank,--suggesting nothing so much as a group of guys spending a great deal of time hanging around their basements running video games, eating pizzas and jeering at various leggy but inaccessible young women.


Wow. That's some sentence. One gets the feeling that Berlinski eschews the utility of the full stop out of his utter glee in hearing himself go on and on unimpeded by bothersome punctuation. It's also interesting to note that he ascribes low-lifeism to "the men who contribute" to PT without saying that it's the commenters there and not the actual contributors that he's referring to. Otherwise he would have to admit that the intellectual assets of PT contributors are considerable; you can see for yourself here.


By and large they're people who are doing something to make the world a better place other than sitting on their fat asses in Paris disparaging all who would deign to believe that mere science, and the actual work (here one sees Berlinski reacting to the sound of the word as Maynard G. Krebs would) that scientists do on a daily basis is worth nothing more than some occasional self-worshiping intellectual masturbation.

Gee, Air Fart Dave

You are doing a sterling job as the Fundy thought police there, proving the immense damage that American Christian Fundamentalism does, to what might otherwise be a potentially normal person.

Proof indeed, that the promoters of that insanity consider the minds of its followers just simple real estate to be owned, science is just “false memories” for them.

An independent observer (any god or devil will do, as a metaphysical equivalent) would rightly conclude that there is little difference between the state created manic social realism under the worlds last Stalinist Regime , North Korea and the decentralized manic social realism  of American Christian Fundamentalism.

Complete with low grade emotionally charged propaganda prepared in the Fundy equivalent of Orwell's  "Chestnut Tree Cafe" , misleading information presented as 'fact', 'cultural training' and indoctrination centers which receive their imprimatur,  their raison d'être from an all powerful superhuman (Kim Il Yung or his imaginary 'Big Brother' Fundy equivalent)

A power structure built on total subordination to dogma and censoring dissent. Under educated and brutish mechanistic party aparachiks   like D.T. who throw dissent down "memory holes".

Devoted commissars like A.F.D  who uncritically and mindlessly repeat the same old tired message endlessly.

Well continue on Air Fart “falsification of the past” suits you.


Those who have read '1984' by Orwell and place more value on what really happened in the past will remember the last line, Fundamentalists have succeeded in obliterating the past in their Jihadists minds.

AFD you are a  triumph of disinformation.

A.F.D forget about the Fundy dystopia of '1984' being sometime in the future, the North Korean regime is almost a mirror copy of Orwell's commentary on the Post World War II western government of Oceania whose slogan was;


"'Who controls the past,' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'"


Your parents implemented that scheme to great effect as witnessed by your 100 pages of denial of the past. Their fiction, their magical reality, their social constructivism has produced you, a man unable to determine fact from fiction.

... the Party controls the people by feeding them lies and narrowing their imaginations through a process of bewilderment and brutalization that alienates each individual from his fellows and deprives him of every liberating human pursuit from reasoned inquiry to sexual passion.

Did you know that the Republican Party uses a certain Frank Luntz who uses Orwell as his post Goebellian guide to 'better government'

Political language… is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind

That language is no different in Christian Fundamentalism which really is identity politics and has very little to do with religion, other than name.


Just by way of example AFD are you a Global Melt-Down skeptic ? take a look at this



 
Quote

Slamming the Climate Skeptic Scam
...political consultant Frank Luntz to the U.S. Republican Party. Luntz followed the [PR] rules: he did the research; he identified the soft spots in public opinion; and he made a clever critical judgment about which way the public could be induced to move.

In a section entitled "Winning the Global Warming Debate," Luntz says this (and all the points of emphasis are his own):

"The Scientific Debate Remains Open. Voters believe that there is no consensus about global warming within the scientific community. Should the public come to believe that the scientific issues are settled, their views about global warming will change accordingly. Therefore, you need to make the lack of scientific certainty a primary issue in the debate, and defer to scientists and other experts in the field."

If you download the memo and read the whole thing, you will notice that Luntz never expressly denies the validity of the science. In fact, he says, "The scientific debate is closing [against us] but is not yet closed."

" ... not yet closed"? Among those who disagree with that assessment are the 2,500 scientists in the IPCC, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the Royal Society of London and the Royal Society of Canada Donald Kennedy, editor-in-chief of Science magazine, says, "We're in the middle of a large uncontrolled experiment on the only planet we have." And to back up his sense of certainty, he reported that Science had analysed the 928 peer-reviewed climate studies published between 1993 and 2003 and found not a single one that disagreed with the general scientific consensus.

Journalists have consistently reported the updates from the best climate scientists in the world juxtaposed against the unsubstantiated raving of an industry-funded climate change denier - as if both are equally valid.
Notwithstanding, Luntz wrote: "There is still a window of opportunity to challenge the science." He recommended that his Republican Party clients do just that. He urged them to marshal their own "scientists" to contest the issue on every occasion. He urged them to plead for "sound science" a twist of language of the sort that George Orwell once said was "designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidarity to pure wind."

Luntz's goal - embraced with unnerving enthusiasm by the Bush Administration - is to manufacture uncertainty and to politicize science. Like all tragedy, it would be hilarious if you could play it for laughs.

It's an open question as to whether Luntz and company are being willfully blind or grossly negligent in the way they have ignored the science - and the potential catastrophic risks that they promote. But whichever way you cut it, their actions reflect badly on the whole public relations industry.

Conspiracy theorists will be happy to hear that I'm not suggesting that Frank Luntz or even a dubious cabal of ethics-free PR people are solely to blame for the public confusion on climate change. They have received extensive, if clumsy assistance from the media, which in a lazy and facile attempt to provide "balance" is willing to give any opinion equal time as long as it is firmly in contradiction with another.

As you read this blasphemous sticker, compare its phrases to those found in the evolution sticker of Cobb County reprinted at the bottom.

“This book [the Bible] contains religious stories regarding the origin of living things. The stories are theories, not facts. They are unproven, unprovable and in some cases totally impossible.

Quite so SteveS.

AFDave is doing far more than any of *one* of us could, to debunk Creationist propaganda, including their claim to some sort of moral high ground.

The thing about people who have been trained since birth to deny reality with a small library of stock phrases (which is all that is needed) and the final caveat of "If you feel the opposition are right, you will forever be doomed to ever lasting H3LL" is a very powerful psychological tool that actually hard wires their brain's neurons for permanent denial.

They are given an enemy for life and told that no moral rules apply to the way that enemy are dealt with.

Hardly Christian.

No ,in fact it is NOT Christian but just plain old identity politics, with ethics  no different to any totalitarian regime of the past.

That is why they want to move “The Law” from Rome to Jerusalem they then get to decide what “gods” laws are.

You only have to look in the old testament to see how powerful that propaganda is, the Priests made god into a dictator so they and their kings could rule with no opposition.

Every member of society becomes one of gods secret police and the whole nation a priestly gulag

Now the ironic thing is that to continue the charade actually makes its adherents technically insane, that is to say, not in connection with reality, a type of neurotic schizophrenia, like the people in the old  insane asylums who thought they were Napoleon or Jesus.

Except their social group with its shared delusion creates the impression for those inside its horizons, of sanity to them, its those outside who are insane by way of the shared delusion.

In other words to be a member of the group, you must suspend belief in reality.

Every action against their delusion makes them a greater martyr for the cause, a tool that is put to good use by their leaders. Simple identity politics, no religion needed.

In fact the central precepts of morality from religion MUST be re-defined as AMORAL, they are no longer capable of determining good from evil.

I can think of no other example that would better describe H3LL, than the place where AF Dave is right now. The pressure he must feel, must be enormous.

AFD claims to be a "Free thinking Christian"

WRONG on both counts AFD is neither "Free thinking" nor "Christian".

Let me correct your "mis-statement" AFD.

Rigidly uncritical, unthinking and blind follower of a dangerous authoritarian anti-democratic politico-religious cult that hypocritically calls itself Christian

You claim to love Jesus AFD, but who do you love Jesus against?

By the way, did you know Mary wasn't the mother of god?

Yes, AFD you are free to think whatever your cult decides. Institutionalized Schizophrenia.

Quote
Schizophrenia is “any of a group of psychotic disorders usually characterized by withdrawal from reality, illogical patterns of thinking, delusions, hallucinations, accompanied in varying degrees by other emotional, behavioral, or intellectual disturbances. A condition that results from the coexistence of disparate, antagonistic qualities, identities, or activities” (www.Dictionary.com)


AFD  who said?

“How do you find a lion that has swallowed you?”

here is the answer to that question

“you can’t find or see that lion”—not as long as you are inside the beast.

Trust half a D*** to come up with a 130 year old discredited piece of wishful thinking.

Now 1/2 a D makes the plainly false rhetorical and therefore an an appeal to the truly stupid, claim by Biblical literalistists that the genealogy of the "One true word of FOG" proves (in a totally scienti-fickle sense u understand) that the age of DOF's world is around 6000 somethings, give or take, but if D divided by 2 actually did a  genealogy on every human on DOG's green rock he would find that the time line traces back to well over a 100,000 years otherwise Kane and Able would have to have had something like 500,000 children each.

Now I know in fractional D's world that is not an impossibility, but everyone should know that even though each man could theoretically impregnate every single women on earth with each ejaculation the reality is there are not enough boxes of chocolate and bottles of cheap wine that one man could accumulate in his short pre Christian life time to make that a certainty.

On the other hand (no pun intended..oh OK pun intended) if Kane was a Gene Simmonds look alike and he had a rock band and didn't wear condoms he may have been able to get it up, with a respectable frequency, producing a vast Asiatic and African offspring, but the returned rings and letters by village scribes may have shortened his romantic and thus procreatic career.

Goebbels 1928 Knowledge is Power speach

Quote

Background: This is to my mind one of Goebbels' most interesting speeches. It was given on 9 January 1928 to an audience of party members at the so-called "Hochschule für Politik," a series of training talks for party members in Berlin. It is Goebbels' most extended discussion of the nature of propaganda, all the more interesting because of its early date.

Knowledge and Propaganda



by Joseph Goebbels


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My dear fellow party members!

Our theme this evening is hotly disputed. I realize that my viewpoint is subjective. There is really little point to discussing propaganda. It is a matter of practice, not of theory. One cannot determine theoretically whether one propaganda is better than another. Rather, that propaganda is good that has the desired results, and that propaganda is bad that does not lead to the desired results. It does not matter how clever it is, for the task of propaganda is not to be clever, its task is to lead to success. I therefore avoid theoretical discussions about propaganda, for there is no point to it. Propaganda shows that it is good if over a certain period it can win over and fire up people for an idea. If it fails to do so, it is bad propaganda. If propaganda wins the people it wanted to win, it was presumably good, and if not, it was presumably bad. No one can say that your propaganda is too crude or low or brutal, or that it is not decent enough, for those are not the relevant criteria. Its purpose is not to be decent, or gentle, or weak, or modest; it is to be successful. That is why I have intentionally chosen to discuss propaganda along with a second theme, knowledge. Otherwise, our discussion this evening would be of little value. We have not gathered to discuss lovely theories, but rather to find ways of practically working together to deal with our everyday challenges.

What is propaganda, and what role does it have in political life? That is the question of greatest interest to us. How should propaganda look, and what is its role in our movement? Is it an end in itself, or only a means to an end? We must discuss that, but we can do that only when we begin with the origin of propaganda itself, namely the idea, then move to the target of propaganda, namely people.

Ideas in themselves are timeless. They are not tied to individuals, much less to a people. They rest in a people, it is true, and affect their attitudes. Ideas, people say, are in the clouds. When someone comes along who can put in words what everyone feels in their hearts, each feels: "Yes! That is what I have always wanted and hoped for." That is what happens the first time one hears one of Hitler's major speeches. I have met people who had attended a Hitler meeting for the first time, and at the end they said: "This man put in words everything I have been searching for for years. For the first time, someone gave form to what I want." Others are lost in confusion, but suddenly someone stands up and puts it in words. Goethe's words become reality: "Lost in silent misery, God gave someone to express my suffering."

Some kind of idea is at the beginning of every political movement. It is not necessary to put this idea in a thick book, nor that it take political form in a hundred long paragraphs. History proves that the greatest world movements have always developed when their leaders knew how to unify their followers under a short, clear theme. That is clear from the French Revolution, or Cromwell's movement, or Buddhism, Islam, or Christianity. Christ's goal was clear and simple: "Love your neighbor as yourself." He gathered his followers behind that straightforward statement. Because this teaching was simple, crisp, clear, and understandable, enabling the broad masses to stand behind it, it in the end conquered the world.

One then builds a whole system of thought on such a brief, crisply formulated idea. The idea does not remain limited to this single statement, rather it is applied to every aspect of daily life and becomes the guide for all human activity — politics, culture, the economy, every area of human behavior. It becomes a worldview. We see that in all great revolutionary movements, which begin with a clear, crisp, understandable, all-encompassing idea. They spread more and more and become a mirror of life that reflects all activities of the peoples, and indeed in a particular way.

Then one can say that a person has a worldview—not because he knows a lot or has read a lot—but because he sees all of life from a certain standpoint, and measures everything by a certain standard. I am a Christian when I believe that the meaning of my life is the heavy responsibility to love my neighbor as myself. .
Kant once said: "Act as if the principle of your life could be the principle for your entire nation." I am a National Socialist not when I want this or that from politics, rather when I consider all aspects of daily life. I must act in all things by putting the good of the whole above my personal good, by putting the good of the state above my personal good. But then I also have the guarantee that such a state will be able to protect my personal life. I am a National Socialist when I see everything in politics, culture or the economy from this standpoint. I therefore do not evaluate the theater from the standpoint of whether it is elegant or amusing, rather I ask: Is it good for my people, is it useful for them, does it strengthen the community? If so, the community in turn can benefit, support and strengthen me. I do not see the economy as some sort of way of making money, rather I want an economy that will strengthen the people, make them healthy and powerful. Then too I can expect that this people will support and maintain me. If I see things in this way, I see the economy in National Socialist terms.

If I develop this crisp, clear idea into a system of thought that includes all human drives, wishes and actions, I have a worldview.

As an idea develops into a worldview, the goal is the state. The knowledge does not remain the property of a certain group, but fights for power. It is not just the fantasy of a few people among the people, rather it becomes the idea of the rulers, the circles that have power. The view does not only preach, but it is carried out in practice. Then the idea becomes the worldview of the state. The worldview has become a government organism when it seizes power and can influence life not only in theory, but in practical everyday life.

Now we must consider who is the carrier, the transmitter, the guardian of such ideas. An idea always lives in individuals. It seeks an individual to transmit its great intellectual force. It becomes alive in a brain, and seeks escape through the mouth. The idea is preached by individuals, individuals who will never be satisfied to have the knowledge remain theirs alone. You know that from experience. When one knows something one does not keep it hidden like a buried treasure, but rather one seeks to tell others. One looks for people who should know it. One feels that everyone else should know as well, for one feels alone when no one else knows. For example, if I see a beautiful painting in an art gallery, I have the need to tell others. I meet a good friend and say to him: "I have found a wonderful picture. I have to show it to you." The same is true of ideas. If an idea lives in an individual, he has the urge to tell others. There is some mysterious force in us that drives us to tell others. The greater and simpler the idea is, the more it relates to daily life, the more one has the desire to tell everyone about it.

If I believe that the nation must be governed by the principle that the common good comes before the individual good, I will tell it to those to whom it applies. As soon as I realize that this principle is not only of a transcendental nature, but that it applies to daily life, I have the need to tell it to those in the economic world. And if I see it applies to culture as well, I have the need to tell it to those people involved in cultural activities. The great masses will never be won simply by such a sentence; it must cast its shadow over all areas of human life.

You see how an idea spreads and becomes a worldview, and how the bearer, the individual, reaches out to form a community, and how an organization, then a movement grows from the individual. The idea is no longer buried in the heart and mind of an individual. Now there are four, five, ten, twenty, thirty, fifty, eighty, a hundred, and ever more. That is the secret of ideas; they are like a wildfire that cannot be restrained. They are like a gas that seeps through everything. Where an idea finds entry, it enters, and soon that person is influencing others. The others cannot stop it. They may believe they can stop the fire by force. They may even be able to do so for two, or ten, twenty, or fifty years. But that is not significant in the larger course of world history. It is irrelevant if something happens today or tomorrow, or even years in the future.

It is possible to slow an idea by force for a certain period of time. In reality, however, that advances the idea, for force drives out that which is weak. The elements that do not really belong collapse. Suddenly, the individual becomes a community, a movement, or if you prefer, a party.

Each movement begins as a party. That does not mean it has to follow the methods of parliamentary parties. We see a party as a part of the people. As an idea spreads, becoming a worldview that spreads to the community, the community will want to give the idea practical form. The party will feel the necessity to organize. Someone will suddenly have the idea: "You think the way I think. You are working over there, I am working here, and we know nothing of each other. That is absurd. It would be better if we worked together, if I did my part and you did yours. Would it not be good if we met every month and talked?" That is an organization. Gradually, a strong organism develops, a party ready to fight for its ideals. A party that does not want that will indeed continue to preach its ideals, but will never bring them into reality.

A recent example may help. Our movement is often accused of losing its character as a movement. We are accused of taking the vast, broad and ever-moving system of thought of the völkisch movement and forcing it into a Procrustean bed. We supposedly had to chop of the legs of the movement that stuck out, eliminating important parts of the völkisch idea. National Socialism is only a surrogate for the real movement, some say. In fact, the völkisch movement ran aground on this matter. Each declares his own particular interest central to the völkisch movement, and accuses anyone who does not share his views as being a traitor to the cause. That is the way the völkisch movement was before the war. If someone had been able to take this great idea — and the völkisch idea was greater than the Marxist idea — and develop out of it a tightly disciplined political organization, then the völkisch idea, not the Marxist idea, would have won on 9 November [1918]. Marxism won because it had a better understanding of political conditions, because it had forged the sword it would later use to conquer the state. If a völkisch organizer had understood how to form a great movement — it is a question of life or death for our nation — the völkisch idea, not Marxism, would have won, It was a worldview, but it did not understand how to form a party and how to forge the sharp sword that would have enabled it to conquer the state.

The state needs a worldview. Christianity also conquered the state, and in the moment that it conquered the state it began to carry out practical political activity. You can with justice claim: "Yes, but at the moment Christianity took over the state, it began to cease being Christian." That is the tragedy of all great ideas. At the moment they enter the realm of this life of sin, of the all-too-human, they leave the heavens and lose their romantic magic. They become something normal. We are not discussing whether or not one can change the nature of life. Things have gone on this way for millions of years, and will go on in the same way for millions more. You will have to ask a higher power why that is so. At the moment an idea takes practical form, it loses its angel's wings, its romantic mystery. If someone had had the courage to strip the völkisch idea of its romantic mystery, if one had taken account of the hard facts, it would not look as romantic today as it does to some dreamers. But it would have kept millions of German children from starving. For me, it is more important that a nation lives than that an idea remains as pure as possible in the heads of a few dreamers.

You can see that a movement needs an organization if it is to conquer the state — and it must conquer the state if it wants to do something of positive and historic significance. I have often met the kind of wandering apostle who says: "Well, everything you are doing is fine, but you really must also take a stand against foreign words in the German language." And another comes along who says: "Well, everything you say is good, but you must have a point in your program that says alleopathy is dangerous, and you must support homepathy." If the movement were led by such apostles, the Jew would end up in charge. The Jew would find something new every day until nothing was left. It is not the task of a revolutionary fighting movement to settle the dispute between alleopathy and homeopathy, rather its task is to take power. The movement must have a program such that every honest fighter can stand behind it. Now, it is certainly true that the modern German cultural establishment produces every manner of nonsense. I know that this nonsense is poisoning the German national soul. There are those who say: "Something has to happen. You have to do something. If you want to fight the movie industry, you must build your own theater, even if it at first has only the most primitive equipment. And if you see that the children are being poisoned by what they read in school, you must begin to win children's souls and give them the antidote." My reply is simple: You can spend ten years giving the antidote to the poison that is produced by a badly led cultural establishment, but a single decree from the Ministry of Culture can destroy all your work. If you had spent that ten years winning fighters for the movement, the movement would have conquered the Ministry of Culture! Everything else is mere piecework.

If a movement wins political power, it can do those positive things it wants to do. Only then does it have the power to protect its accomplishments. At the moment a movement or party wins control of the state, its worldview becomes the state and its party becomes the nation. The nation is not the 60 million people who live in it. That is a confused mixture. One says yea, the other nay. That is not a nation. A nation is characterized by consciousness. Instinct alone is not enough. Only when I am aware that I am a member of the nation, when I am consciously a German, do I belong to the German people. The Great Elector did not say: "Think and remember that you are a German." Rather, he said: "Consider well that you are a German." Consideration is at the level of consciousness. Such consciousness belongs to the entire nation. Adolf Hitler rightly answered the court in Munich in this way when he was asked: "How could you think of establishing a dictatorship over 60 million with such a tiny minority?" His reply: "If an entire nation has become cowardly, and there are only a thousand left who want something great, and who have to power to transform the state, then these thousand people are the nation." If the others let a minority conquer the state, then they must also accept the fact that we will establish a dictatorship.

The same is true of a movement. If a movement has the strength to take over the state, than it has the power to transform the state. I am the last to complain that the Marxists rule us today. As long as we do not have the strength to overcome them, they have the political right to rule us. I am surprised how little they use that right. I would do things differently. That is their tragic misunderstanding of their own worldview. I do not complain that the gentlemen of the Berlin Police use their power against us, only that they call themselves democrats and claim that they allow freedom of thought and of speech. That is nonsense. That is lying hypocrisy, for in truth these gentlemen are dictators.

If a movement has the strength to take over government positions of power, then it has the right to form the government as it wishes. Anyone who disagrees is a foolish theoretician. Politics is governed not by moral principles, but by power. If a movement conquers the state, it has the right to form the state. You can see how these three elements combine ideals and personalities. The idea leads to a worldview, the worldview to the state, the individual becomes a party, the party becomes the nation.

The important thing is not to find people who agree with me about every theoretical jot and tittle, but rather that I find people who are willing to fight with me for a worldview. Winning people over to something that I have recognized as right, that is what we call propaganda. At first there is knowledge; it uses propaganda to find the manpower that will transform knowledge into politics. Propaganda stands between the idea and the worldview, between the worldview and the state, between the individual and the party, between the party and the nation. At the moment at which I recognize something as important and begin speaking about it in the streetcar, I begin making propaganda. At the same moment, I begin looking for other people to join me. Propaganda stands between the one and the many, between the idea and the worldview. Propaganda is nothing other than the forerunner to organization. Once it has done this, it is the forerunner to state control. It is always a means to an end.

Although I must hold unshakably and unalterably to the idea, propaganda adjusts itself to the prevailing conditions. Propaganda is always flexible. It says different things here than it does there. It cannot be polished, laminated and stuffed; rather it must occupy the space between the one and the many. I talk differently on the streetcar with the conductor than I do with a businessman. If I did not, the businessman would think I was crazy and the streetcar conductor would not understand me. That means propaganda cannot be limited. It changes according to whom I am trying to reach. Let me tell a good story about a party member in Berlin who since 1919 has promoted the National Socialist idea. At first, he beat his head bloody against a wall that we want to avoid. He began by distributing the wildest anti-Semitic publications on the street. He knew it was bad stuff, but there was nothing better, so he read these books or newspapers in the subway. Everyone could see that he was a harmless crank, and when he stood up and left his newspapers behind, someone regularly would say: "Sir, take your newspaper along with you." He would angrily take his paper and leave it with the conductor, saying: "Here, German brother." And the conductor certainly thought he came from the nuthouse. He gradually realized that the methods that worked with friends and comrades do not work with strangers.

In other words, there is no ABC of propaganda. One can make propaganda, or one cannot. Propaganda is an art. Any reasonably normal person can learn to play the violin to a certain degree, but then his teacher will say: "This is as far as it goes. Only a genius can learn what remains. You are not a genius, so be content with what you have learned." I can certainly teach any reasonable person the absolute basics of propaganda. But I will soon recognize the limits. One is either a propagandist, or one is not. It is wrong to look down on a propagandist. There are people who say a propagandist is merely a good drummer. This displays a certain envy and lack of ability. They are mostly mediocre philosophers whom the masses ignore. You have seen often enough — no one can deny it — that our movement has good speakers. Since our opponents do not have good speakers, they say: "Well, they are only good drummers." Hitler was called the "Drummer of National Unity" for five years. When they realized that this drummer had ideas that didn't fit into their way of thinking, he was suddenly a "crazy politician" who had to be dealt with. It is foolish to look down on propagandists. The propagandist has a certain role within the party. It is good for our young movement that we are young and lacking in really great leaders — though naturally not in comparison to other parties. The great leaders we have cannot stick to a particular area, but must be able to do everything. They must be propagandists, organizers, speakers, writers, etc. They must be able to get along with people, find money, write articles, and a lot more. That is why it is wrong to say that Hitler is merely a drummer. That is what is great about him, and what separates him from everyone else. He is a politician, and also a propagandist, while the leaders of other parties understand neither politics nor propaganda. You can see how propaganda relates to the worldview and to the organization. After we have finished the hard work of moving the idea and the worldview from the individuals to the masses, propaganda has the task of taking the knowledge of the mass and enabling it to take over the state.

Let me give an example.

What good would it do if everything we know to be right stayed in our few heads! The few would doubt the rightness of the idea, since they would see that no one was joining them. And if we did not have the people — from the lowliest S.A. man who distributes newspapers to the best speaker, or the leader of the party, all our lovely knowledge would be useless, for only we would know it. The others would continue their nonsense, and the German people in the end would perish.

Propaganda is absolutely necessary, even if it is only a means to an end. Otherwise, the idea could never take over the state. I must be able to get what I think important across to many people. The task of a gifted propagandist is to take that which many have thought and put it in a way that reaches everyone from the educated to the common man. You will all grant me this, and as further evidence I can recall a Hitler speech in Jena. Half the audience were Marxists, half students and university professors. I had a burning desire to speak with both elements afterwards. I could see that the university professor and the average man had understood what Hitler said. That is the greatness of our movement, that it can use language to reach the broad masses.

Of course, the style will vary according to the speaker. It would be a big mistake to expect everyone to treat the idea in the same way, for as great as it is, so different are the individuals who are to be reached by it. You will surely hear some people say that they like one speaker, while others prefer another. It would be a mistake to try to make the soft-spoken speaker into a thundering orator, or a thundering orator into a soft-spoken chap. Neither would accomplish anything. The soft-spoken speaker would never reach the heart no matter how hard he tried, nor would the thundering orator succeed in speaking quietly. Everyone would go home dissatisfied. The bigger our movement gets, the more kinds of people it can house, and each will reflect the movement a little differently. No two things in God's world are alike. Everything is a little different. Thus one person reflects things differently than another.

As propaganda draws an ever-growing following to the idea, the idea broadens, becomes more flexible. It no longer stays in a few heads, but wants to include everything. At that moment it becomes a comprehensive program. We can happily see that that is the case in our movement. You will never find millions of people willing to die for a book. But millions of people are willing to die for a gospel, and our movement is becoming more and more a gospel. All that we have come to know in our individual lives is joining to form a great faith that lives unshakably in our hearts. Each of us is willing, if necessary, to give his all for it. No one is willing to die for the 8-hour day. But people are willing to die so that Germany will belong to the Germans. What Adolf Hitler prophesied in 1919 is becoming clearer every day: "Freedom and Prosperity!" The movement is increasingly freeing itself from the all too human, and becoming a powerful force. The time is coming when people will not ask us what we think about the 8-hour day; but rather when Germany is seized with desperation they will ask: "Can you give us back faith?" If a movement has brought the idea from the individual to a worldview, building in the end a clear gospel for which each is ready to die, that movement is near victory. That does not happen in the study, but rather in battle, in bitter battle each day with the enemy, bringing him to see how he has led the nation down the wrong path. I must say that I learn the most from reading the "Berliner Tageblatt" [A newspaper hostile to the Nazis]. That is a fine example of the Jews at work. From the Jewish standpoint, I've never noted a single mistake, whereas the nationalist papers make mistakes all the time.

I now want to outline the essential characteristics of propaganda. We have already agreed that propaganda is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. Its task is to spread the knowledge of National Socialism to the people, or to a part of the people. If propaganda does that, it is good; if not, it is bad. The German Nationalists claimed that Hitler's propaganda before 9 November 1923 was too loud, too noisy, too popular. Hitler replied: "Munich must become National Socialist. If I achieve that my propaganda will have been good. If I had wanted to make you happy, it would have been bad. But that was not my intention." You cannot evaluate propaganda in midcourse, but rather you have to wait until it reaches its maker's goal. You cannot say that our propaganda was wrong because the government banned it. That is false. Under Jewish police officials, our propaganda would be wrong if it were not banned, for that means it would be harmless, The fact that it is banned is the best evidence that we are dangerous. If the ban is lifted, do not come to me and say that the Jew has seen the error of his ways. It will be lifted when the Jew sees that it is not achieving his purpose. You can say what you want. The Jew will put away his dagger only when he sees that it is better not to use it against a propaganda method, or when he sees that the dagger has already done its duty.

Success is the important thing. Propaganda is not a matter for average minds, but rather a matter for practitioners. It is not supposed to be lovely or theoretically correct. I do not care if I give wonderful, aesthetically elegant speeches, or speak so that women cry. The point of a political speech is to persuade people of what we think right. I speak differently in the provinces than I do in Berlin, and when I speak in Bayreuth, I say different things than I say in the Pharus Hall [A meeting hall the Nazis often used in Berlin]. That is a matter of practice, not of theory.We do not want to be a movement of a few straw brains, but rather a movement that can conquer the broad masses. Propaganda should be popular, not intellectually pleasing. It is not the task of propaganda to discover intellectual truths. I find them by thinking, or at my desk, anywhere but in a meeting hall. That is where I transmit them. I do not enter the meeting hall to discover intellectual truths, but to persuade others of what I think to be right. I learn methods there that I can use to reach others with what I have found to be right. The speaker or propagandist must first understand the idea. He cannot do that in the middle of making propaganda. He must start with it. Through daily contact with the masses, he learns how to communicate that idea. It is not the task of propaganda to discover knowledge, but to transmit knowledge. It must adjust to those it wishes to reach with that knowledge. The propagandist's speeches or posters that are aimed at farmers will be different than those aimed at employers; those aimed at doctors will be different than those aimed at patients. He will adjust his propaganda to fit those he is speaking to. You can see that all the critical standards used by other parties to evaluate propaganda miss the point, and that most complaints about the NSDAP's propaganda result from a false understanding of propaganda. If someone tells me: "Your propaganda has no civilized standards," I know there is no point in even talking with him.

It makes no difference if propaganda is at a high level. The question is whether it reached its goal. My first goal when I came to Berlin was to make the city aware of us. They could love us or hate us, as long as they knew who we were. We have reached that goal. We are hated and loved. When someone hears the term National Socialist, he does not ask: "What is that?" Once we have reached the first goal, we can work on turning hate to love and love to hate, but never to indifference. The battle against indifference is the hardest battle. There may be two million people in this city who hate my guts, who persecute and slander me, but I know that I can win over some of them. We know that from experience. Some of those who persecuted us and fought most bitterly against us are today our most determined supporters. You see that the important thing for propaganda is that it reach its goal, and that it is a mistake to apply critical standards that are irrelevant.

Let me give another example. If someone asks me what I think of another person, it is silly for me to say: "I like him, but he cannot play the piano." The answer will be: "So what? He is a corporate lawyer. Why don't you see if he is good at what he does?" That is a good answer. And it applies just as well to propaganda.

Our propaganda follows a clear line. Adolf Hitler once told me that it is not necessary to give a programmatic speech to a public meeting. The public meeting requires the most primitive approach. If the fine gentlemen say: "You are only a propagandist," the answer is this: "Was Christ any different? Did he not make propaganda? Did he write books, or did he preach? Was Mohammed any different? Did he write learned essays, or did he go to the people and say what he wanted to say? Were not Buddha and Zarathustra propagandists?" True, the philosophers of the French Revolution built their intellectual foundations. But who got things moving? Robespierre, Danton, and the others. Did these men write books, or did they speak in popular meetings? Look around today. Is Mussolini more an author or a great speaker? When Lenin took the train from Zurich to Petersburg, did he repair to his study and write a book, or did he speak to thousands? Fascism and Bolshevism were built by great speakers, by masters of the spoken word! There is no difference between the politician and the speaker. History proves that great politicians were always great speakers: Napoleon, Caesar, Alexander, Mussolini, Lenin, name whomever you want. They were all great speakers and great organizers. If a person combines rhetorical talent, organizational ability, and philosophical ability, if he has the ability to transmit knowledge and to gather people under his banner, then he is a brilliant statesman.

If someone tells me today: "You are a demagogue," I answer him in this way: "Demagogy in the good sense is simply the ability to get the masses to understand what I want them to understand." Of course, I can adjust to the feelings of the broad masses, which is demagogy in the bad sense. Then I change not only the form of what I want to say, but also the content.

You cannot tell me that things have changed. Formerly, speakers built movements; today we live in the age of the press, and it is the writers who are influential. This theory is obviously false. Of course the press is important. But if you examine well-written editorials, they turn out to be speeches in disguise. The Marxists did not win through their editorials, but rather because each Marxist editorial was a little propaganda speech. They were written by agitators. They sat in their offices or in smoke-filled bars, writing not elegant, intellectual and polished essays, but rather brutal, direct words that the average man understood. That is why the masses devoured the Red press. We must learn from their example. Marxism did not win because it had great prophets — they had none. Marxism won because its nonsense was promoted by agitators of the ability of August Bebel and Lenin. They led Marxism to victory. If the völkisch movement had had such agitators at its disposal, its stronger intellectual foundations would surely have led it to victory. Some critics complain: "All you do is criticize! You only complain. You can't do things any better yourselves!" Others say that "the Angriff [Goebbels's newspaper in Berlin] is entirely negative. Say something positive for a change." Well, I am not in a position to say anything positive about Isidor Weiss [the Jewish Vice Chief of Police in Berlin, and a regular Goebbels target]. I can only be negative. And there is nothing positive I can say about the Republic. There is nothing positive about it. I can say something positive only when I eliminate the negative. The most brilliant statesman on earth could do nothing with this Republic. And Marxism preached only the negative for sixty years. The result was that it took over the state on 9 November 1918. Hitler once said: "Keep those know-it-alls who always want to do something positive away from me." We can do something positive only when we have first gotten rid of the negative. A leader does not emerge from a conference table. He develops from the masses, and the more a true leader rises from the masses, the more he draws the masses to him. The mass is the weak, cowardly, lazy majority of people. One can never entirely win the broad mass. The best elements from the mass must be put in a form where they can be victorious. That is the task of a brilliant mind. We thank fate that it has given us one of these minds, a mind superior to all others, whom we willingly serve. That is the proof that we will win. If others find their wisdom in majority rule, but a movement is led by one person, that movement will win. When it wins is irrelevant. It will win because that is the way things are. Look around as much as you want. You will everywhere see our movement's intellectual foundations.

The task of the leaders and followers is to drive this knowledge ever deeper into the hearts of our shattered nation. Each must make that clear, each must think things through. Everything we do must be clear. We will never give up. If everything is clear, one does not have to be an outstanding speaker. If he can say it all in a few words, he is a propagandist. If we have an army of such propagandists, from the littlest to the Führer himself, and if each spreads our crystal-clear knowledge to the masses, the day will come which our worldview takes over the state, when our organization seizes the reins of power, when we are no longer members of a slave colony, but rather citizens of a political state that we ourselves have formed.

That is our task on this planet: to create the foundation on which our people can live. When we do that, this nation will create works of culture that will endure for eons in world history!

Fallacy: Begging the Question



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also Known as: Circular Reasoning, Reasoning in a Circle, Petitio Principii.

Description of Begging the Question
Begging the Question is a fallacy in which the premises include the claim that the conclusion is true or (directly or indirectly) assume that the conclusion is true. This sort of "reasoning" typically has the following form.


Premises in which the truth of the conclusion is claimed or the truth of the conclusion is assumed (either directly or indirectly).
Claim C (the conclusion) is true.
This sort of "reasoning" is fallacious because simply assuming that the conclusion is true (directly or indirectly) in the premises does not constitute evidence for that conclusion. Obviously, simply assuming a claim is true does not serve as evidence for that claim. This is especially clear in particularly blatant cases: "X is true. The evidence for this claim is that X is true."

Some cases of question begging are fairly blatant, while others can be extremely subtle.

Examples of Begging the Question

Bill: "God must exist."
Jill: "How do you know."
Bill: "Because the Bible says so."
Jill: "Why should I believe the Bible?"
Bill: "Because the Bible was written by God."

Hi Louis, I'm jealous of the skeptics drinkathon but NOT meeting Mr Fullofit.

It does sound like the kind of place that would take some serious work to get thrown out of tho'....hehehe..I'm sure I could manage it.

Now I have heard your Mr Fuller on a radio interview not long after Dover, where your American friend (which sums up his ignorant attitude, coupled with a cheesy optimism) claimed to have found a new epistemology for religion and science ...in other words sweet f#uck all of nothing.

The interviewer seemed less than impressed. Naturally Fuller waved his hands.....there was nothing up his sleeves. He was a bit dull actually.

He was certainly less than impressive on the stand at Dover and succeeded in  sending the gallery to sleep while speaking at a rate exceeding the formation of rational thought...especially his own.

When he finished they couldn't show him the door too soon.

So IF you DO have the opportunity to ping him. Ask him a very simple question that demands a very simple answer and don't let him expand on it.

That classic question is the one old time lawyers keep asking creationists and their answer always discredits them immediately if they get it wrong.
(adopt AliG's persona for these)
Ahem
Mr Fuller. Please answer Yes or No, Do you agree or disagree with Mr Darwin that Homo Sapiens and Chimpanzees are descended from a common ancestor?

He will of course try to go all postmodern with equal time for stupid ideas and as a professional in that field he has few peers (snicker).

In which case I would say

Mr Fuller. Please answer Yes or No, Do you agree or disagree with Dr Alan Sokal (who I'm sure he fears) that postmodernism and pseudo science are descended from a common ancestor?

And would you please speculate what that ancestor may be.

Don't wait for him to answer
prompt him with dingbats, religious fanaticism, national socialism, UFO kooks, homeopathy, new agers

Good one Louis.

Yeah he's a fast talking smart ass so he knows what strings to pull to rise up through the ranks of PoMo Social Science and probably screwed the right people.

If I was there I would ask him something along the lines of.

"Re Dover: Now that all the evidence has been weighed and the Dover school board was found attempting to introduce creationism which being a religion, is therefore illegal in US science classes. So yes or no, is it morally supportable on your part  to assist a US school board to break the law as you did at the Dover trial?"

And watch him squirm.

He may say ID is not creationism (remind him it is according to the US court) and he WILL take up the rest of conversation with mental masturbation to cover his tracks (remind him ID is not science but religion according to the US court),

So it would be an interesting exercise to see how many times he would need to be reminded before he quits.


He will come up with a 'new epistemology' which is just code for theocratic circular reasoning
(remind him objective reasoning tells us that reality is measurable and practiced without the aid of the putative humanities since they gave up reason in favor non evidence based apologetics of one kind or another)
then throw a full pint of Guinness over him and give him the old one two.  arrrrrrrggggggghhhhh. Dang I wish I was there you just can't get that sort of entertainment here. Maybe scratch that last suggestion..maybe.



Skeptics should have a ball with this guy.

Now I suspect he will come over all lovey dovey and say HE is a skeptic as well, but he is a sheep in wolfs clothing, he's just an old slightly more sophisticated creationist.

You should warn your skeptic pals to be wary of having the wool pulled over their eyes.

All the action is in reverse engineering the machinery of life at the molecular scale. Engineers are the experts at reverse engineering. Who cares what happened in the distant past? That’s water under the bridge. Everything important is in living tissue and we don’t need to guess about how it works when we can reverse engineer it. -ds

Yup history is bunk, In the Year of our Microsoft 0031 praise our Ford. Pol Pot and DS would have been bosom buddies in year zero. Kill all the old people, wipe out mans collected wisdom, and breed reverse engineers to secure our future utopia.

No man north of the border is more in need of a blow job more than DT.

History is not an intelligent agent, it is a concept, as is time which cannot be observed directly as it is not reducible except as a unit of measure of past events.

In effect we observe history which we measure its sequence of events with units of time. Thus we observe history not time as such. The past is a sequence of events which we call history.

Without those events we would not be here, various figures in the past have attempted to destroy recorded history so they can shape the future in their own image....need I go on?

Huxley wrote his revenge on the history destroyers (In the year of our Ford... [history is bunk Henry] and the dystopian nightmare of a society that based all its values on 'objective engineering' without reference to the subjective, dare I say divine, art of reading between the lines of mythology and nature itself which is what Darwin did.

In DT's world a jaw bone morphing into ear bone removes him as a valued creator of life in his own image, his projected god is thus a second rate actor...just as DT is. (It's ALL projection)

When nature can better 'engineer' a functioning system through sexual reproduction and time.
He is intensely envious of both. A mere mortal wart on the ass of beauty ....a sneeze of nature itself.

Story telling (Myths of psychological revelation) from our Oral/Aural prehistory when captured on paper lead to objectivism, where science and its attention to facts confuses the sheep who then read those stories as though they were peer reviewed studies of actual events.

Balbinder Sing Bhogal a Lecturer in Religious Studies, University of Derby
States: that the heavily visual modes of consciousness typical of literate and postliterate cultures can make an objectivist paradigm highly probable.

He makes the same observation as Huxley (and Orwell for that matter) on misguided objectivism, see his definitions below.

objectivism = "the idea that all acceptable knowledge must take the form of exact, impersonal, context-neutral ‘facts’" p.1 related to Modernity results in ‘hyperrationalistic technocratic tyranny’

relativism = the opposite, or ultimate conclusion, where "no knowledge claims of the objectivist kind can be found, there is no true knowledge and rival knowledge claims are incommensurable". p.1 related to late-Modernity or sometimes Post-Modernity. results in ‘deconstructive irrationalistic nihilism’.

Now doesn't that sound familiar.

This is how Idiot America engages the great issues of the day.

OA you missed 3 exploration companies
I have worked for in the Oil game I'll not name, but one was from Q8 the other Austria and the last Norway.

A Geophysisicist in one of them was a YEC, who was given the task of peeling back the horizons on seismic data to explore a green fields acreage serveral hundred miles from the nearest producing well.
He used all the models currently accepted of old earth but when asked how 'old' the earth was his reference was Fundy Biblical lteralism.

Lucky for him he didn't let it interfere with his professionalism otherwise he would have been out of a job before you could say "$40,000,000 deepwater wildcat". Talk about dichotomy.

Greetings From Idiot America

Quote
The Gut is the basis for the Great Premises of Idiot America. We hold these truths to be self-evident:
Any theory is valid if it sells books, soaks up ratings, or otherwise moves units.
Anything can be true if somebody says it on television.
Fact is that which enough people believe. Truth is determined by how fervently they believe it.
How does it work? This is how it works. On August 21, a newspaper account of the "intelligent design" movement contained this remarkable sentence: "They have mounted a politically savvy challenge to evolution as the bedrock of modern biology, propelling a fringe academic movement onto the front pages and putting Darwin's defenders firmly on the defensive."
A "politically savvy challenge to evolution" is as self-evidently ridiculous as an agriculturally savvy challenge to euclidean geometry would be. It makes as much sense as conducting a Gallup poll on gravity or running someone for president on the Alchemy Party ticket.
It doesn't matter what percentage of people believe they ought to be able to flap their arms and fly, none of them can. It doesn't matter how many votes your candidate got, he's not going to turn lead into gold. The sentence is so arrantly foolish that the only real news in it is where it appeared.
On the front page. Of The New York Times.

AFD I had 2 migrants from Nigeria come up to me last night while I was having a coffee and reading my newspaper at my local coffee shop, all nice and friendly ..in fact just a little too friendly..So I was immediately suspicious.

Anyway the point man, who had his young son with him was carrying what looked like a bible and claimed to be a geologist. He was reluctant to acknowledge it was a bible at first so I had to tease it out of him.

Thanks to you I was able to get to the heart of the matter in no time...thanks.

He was disappointed to find out that by his own standards his claim to knowing the word of god was on equal footing to that of Osama Bin Laden...something your President is well aware of.

He even started to blither about Carbon-14 dating when he reluctantly admitted the earth was around 10,000 years old. Before he could get very far into that famous red herring I took his bible and held it to my ear and told him I couldn't hear the world of god so he proceeded to read from it. I had to remind him that he is no more qualified than anyone else to speak on behalf of god and the words written in the bible are not the words of god but the words of the bible’s writers and the stories are mythology and are not to be given the same factual weight as the newspaper I was reading before he interrupted me.

He was shocked to find out he worshipped a book.
Needless to say it was closed for the rest of the conversation.

More questioning revealed he was the member of some fundamentalist evangelical sect/cult which paralleled the Christian American Taliban something you yourself have made me aware of.

I left him with a few gory  tales of initiation ceremonies of ancient Stone Age tribes …….the beginning of religion in the Human Animal

Bing you may be onto something there..... but keep in mind Lawyers are trained to argue for murderers and criminals whether they agree with the perp. or not.

In other words even if they think they are on the losing side they still have to sound convincing.

Unlike scientists their conscience is for sale to the highest bidder and hiding the truth for them is a high art.

As far as I can see the whole problem with fundamentalists and their ilk is that they NEED objective proof for gods, simply because they accept so called sacred texts AS literally true.

They are caught in trap created by their very definition of facts and evidence and hence perception of reality, what they call 'world view'.

If one accepts a set of mythical stories as objective fact in the same sense as science accepts objective facts and if those same people lack the ability to place any subjective value  on the deeper psychological meaning of mythology, which can ONLY be interpreted subjectively, then they end up with... ironically enough, hyper irrationality and a purely relative judgment on what DOES constitute a fact or evidence.

By adopting a dogmatic and conservative stand on interpretation of myth, since they argue NOT to do so leads to relativism...what happens? .... they become ultra relativists and I would argue dangerous, since they place no value on objective truth...Hoist on their own petard.

As has been pointed out numerous times they actually worship words.

Now here is a true story, last night at a local coffee shop 2 guys came in to buy some food, now one of them had what seemed a slight disability. Anyway the first guy got his order while the other one asked the kid behind the counter for a meat pie with onions... the kid said the pie had onions it just wasn't written on the sign...
the guy said “No I really want it with onions”
kid “No, the pie has onions the sign just doesn't say it”
guy” Look I really want it with onions”
his friend threw a fit and stormed off, hopped in his car and left the onion guy stranded.

Well for AFD the rules of evidence don't apply.

Even if the cops had a video of him speeding through a red light, he would deny it in court, if he thought they would believe he was on a mission from god.

Fortunately for science the courts actually do apply the rules of evidence and all the religious nutjobs have failed the test and were found to be:
a)lying
or
b)were unable to provide evidence that evolution is not true.

Next case.

By the way, you should all know that Arden and stevestory are actually the same person, Burgoyne "Bunny" Wigglesworth, the nefarious British spy and raconteur.


Ah yes the 7th member of the famous "Oxford 5" who for reasons  known only to himself wrote an abridged and unauthorized autobiography titled "The Gay Saboteur: My life of sock  puppetry and kinky cloaks; Volume 7". There is no record of Volumes One to Six.

One reviewer described it as a tawdry tale of penetrations, sunken wrecks, moles, cracked codes and sudden death. The reader is taken on a journey with "Bunny" Wiggleworth as he trawls the bath houses of Istanbul between the wars, in a narcotic haze, in search of blond German submariners sent there to train the Turkish Navy.

Burgoyne was named after his great grandfather who was an infamous member of an old family of Jewish Swiss chocolatiers (The Burghers of Goyne) and had Whitehall known this would have not hired him.

Bunny somehow managed to flee first to Moscow where he was a double agent in the service of both the KGB and the Foreign Intelligence Service of Chad, when found out, he defected to the USA and made an overland escape through Siberia by Yak to the Bering Sea where he was picked up by the US Navy's newest 'nuculear' submarine. Once in the US the CIA wouldn't touch him with a barge pole and pensioned him off.  He converted to Catholicism   and founded an underground sect that had an unique form of  worship “something to do with pomegranates”  is all that can be found out at this stage.

I expect all will be revealed in Volume 8.

The koala's pouch is unique from that of other tree-dwelling marsupials because it opens at the rear. Female koalas have only one baby at a time, and the offspring spends up to seven months in the pouch. After that, it clings to its mother's back until it's about one year old.

Apparently, we took the blue pill.


Since it seems to be the most popular subject on the interweb these days, we've decided to "go with the flow". Why not? What the ####, it drives traffic, and if that's what you, our readers want to talk about, who are we to argue?

Our inbox now has over 2,000 emails in it. Now most of that is from the blog. We get an email every time someone comments.

We had a bunch of hatemail a while back, but that's trickled off now, for which I am eternally grateful.

But now we're getting swamped with thoughts on who we "REALLY" are. Without naming names of accusers, here's a pretty complete list (I think I got them all) of your thoughts:

Honorable mentions (in no particular order) go to

Joel Borofsky

Dohn A. Javison (that one deserves a black eye)

Good news Deadman I have just received a box of leather bound diaries written by Burgoyne 'Bunny' Wigglesworth (sent anonymously AND posthumously of course). Starting with 1937 all the way through 1975 with years 1957-59 missing, a quick check of 1960 shows he was incarcerated for the alleged crime of carrying a minor over state lines. Although he doesn't admit that directly. He simply alleges it.

Looks like I'll have to write Volume 8 of his unauthorized autobiography myself.

Now the odd thing is this.
He has footnoted his diaries in reverse chronological order Almost as though SOMEONE ELSE has written them.

He makes all sorts of claims of a religious nature, including the ludicrous notion that he was here for a REASON and that we were descended from an ancient line of walking plants, he presents no evidence of course.

Anyway that only takes up a tiny portion of  his diaries mostly its concerned with chasing and categorizing the sexual proclivities of like minded people.

AFD's 'God' is the god of liars and the insane, he is no different to the loonies who were locked up for thinking they were Napoleon Bonaparte. Delusions of grandeur indeed, the current clinical definition is Narcissistic Personality Disorder however it was previously known as Megalomania.

From: http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-megalomania.htm

Paradoxically, a person who exhibits such tremendous ego and self-confidence in reality has such low self-esteem and such a fragile ego that he cannot abide any expression other than his own, for fear of annihilation of the self. Therefore everything that is not under his control is perceived as a threat.



AFD's whole world view and perception of self is so tied up with his unsupportable delusion that he must resort to any wild and or ridiculous assertion by personality types similar to himself ...NOT to do so risks annihilation of his ego.

He is trapped, on the one hand to accept reality he loses his identity and on the other to ensure the survival of his ego he must move further from reality (believing his senses) and further into insanity ( unable to determine what is real and what is not).

His posts are getting wilder and more desperate.

I think you would just say, "Ah, that guy's just a stupid creationist."


No AFD wrong.
I would say
"Ah, that guy's just an ignorant uneducated lying pseudo scientist, who values his own self importance and quite often money above truth."

Pseudo science avoids peer review --in layman's terms a reality check or idiot test.

Just like you do AFD.

Peer review is NOT a one sided process.

If a scientist proposes a testable idea and that idea is shown to be wrong by his peers he is expected to provide enough evidence to support his conclusion or retract his assertion.

If he doesn't, he does not get the support of his peers and if his proposals are clearly wrong he can no longer claim to have the support of that body of wisdom and the organizations and governments that support them.

Heck AFD the world of science is littered with stories of various shysters trying to promote their scams while assuming a 'scientific' air of respectability...don't tell me you can't spot a fraud..what is the matter with you?

Are you a fool?

The single greatest value science has is in fact not an objective measure but a moral value, that of ones conscience. Where someone is found to be deliberately lying, then they lose creditability and respect.

That is to say AFD ...now you will have to bear with me here because this is a concept you have no grasp of...indeed your past actions show that you do not only NOT understand this but are pathologically UNABLE to understand it..

I only say that because, others while they may be aware of it need to understand that AFD is physically incapable of understanding the value of truth, his own conscience lies to him.

In science ego's get hurt, many careers have ended where cherished causes not based on reality cause their owners to literally 'go off the rails', fortunately the great majority of the people involved in science value the opinion of their peers AND have enough self respect to know when to admit they are wrong. Their world doesn't end because of an emotional defect, as yours would if you acknowledged the truth.

AFD has been damaged as a child, he is carrying a wound and until he seeks professional help will never be able to deal with his problem.

Mythology actually has something to say in this area.
The tale of Parsifal  an uneducated  fool who tasted early success which gave him a higher opinion of himself than was deserved,  spent many years wandering the forests searching for the hidden castle and each time he found it forgot to ask the question that would have ended his perpetual miasma “What ails thee Knight?”.

AFD has the capacity to pass that damage on, and there is very little we can do to prevent it.

All we can do is reveal his delusion.

I even wasted some time digging up the usual creationist false use of logic to support their own ...er  circular reasoning. (The same type of logic that failed in Dover BTW)

They seem to think that by making a statement (any statement) the statement itself IS evidence.

The moon is made of green cheese, therefore the moon IS green cheese.

Why do you think the moon is made of green cheese?

Well some guy who merely made the assertion, said so

Yes, and what did he say?

The moon is made of green cheese, therefore the moon IS green cheese.

So a circular argument made by a 3rd person?

But it was written in a BOOK, AND it had footnotes so it MUST be science


Oh so, just like the bible eh?




AFD worships  books, bone idolatry.

I was going to suggest he read

The Map That Changed the World: William Smith and the Birth of Modern Geology

And guess what ....surprise ...surprise.. the 2 competing world views in geography in the early 1800's were .......wait for it....catastrophism and gradualism.

Trust a born again idiot to dredge up a 200 year old disproved bible based 'scientific theory'.

Don't Know Much About History

A song popular about 40 years ago contained the line “don’t know much about history.” Apparently things haven’t changed much. Here are some purported-to-be actual answers collected from 6th grade history tests (including spelling anomalies):
“Egypt was inhabited by mummies and they all wrote in hydraulics. They lived in the Sarah Dessert. The climate of the Sarah is such that the inhabitants have to live elsewhere.”

“The Greeks were a highly sculptured people, and without them we wouldn’t have history. The Greeks also had myths. A myth is a female moth.”

“Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who gave people advice. They killed him. After his death, his career suffered a dramatic decline.”

“The greatest writer of the Renaissance was William Shakespeare. He was born in 1564, supposedly on his birthday. He wrote tragedies, comedies, and hysterectomies, all in Islamic pentameter.”

“Johann Bach wrote a great many musical compositions. Bach died from 1750 to the present. Bach was the most famous composer in the world and so was Handel. Handel was half German, half Italian, and half English. He was very large.”

“Beethoven wrote music even though he was deaf. He was so deaf he wrote loud music.”

That’s an “F” in World History. What about American history? A couple answers were: “Benjamin Franklin discovered electricity by rubbing two cats backwards. Franklin died in 1790 and is still dead.”

It is also important to note that relative ages are inherently more precise
 
Quote
 
Relative geologic ages can be deduced in rock sequences consisting of sedimentary, metamorphic, or igneous rock units. In fact, they constitute an essential part in any precise isotopic, or absolute, dating program. Such is the case because most rocks simply cannot be isotopically dated. Therefore, a geologist must first determine relative ages and then locate the most favourable units for absolute dating. It is also important to note that relative ages are inherently more precise, since two or more units deposited minutes or years apart would have identical absolute ages but precisely defined relative ages. While absolute ages require expensive, complex analytical equipment, relative ages can be deduced from simple visual observations. dating. (2006). In Encyclopædia Britannica.

Creationists just don't understand what circular reasoning is.

Call it fundy brain rot but the classic one is the Ken Ham "weeeeere youuuuu theeere?"

No of course not, no one was there when the mythical flud occurred either.

Children with uncorrected thinking skills are the only ones who fall for that.

No AFD, circular reasoning does not mean using differing sets of data/evidence that correlate to support a conclusion.

That is simply calibration. Exactly the same way as measuring a standard and then using that standard measure, to measure an object in situ.

It is the basis for all modern technology, if it didn't work then the Internet and countless other modern developments would not be possible.

Otherwise no conclusions about anything could be made if your childish 'logic' had any relevance.

And therein lies the problem, tell a child that something exists without proof, any proof, then that child's logical facility will remain in a childish state, in other words the child will accept a lie as a truth.

Now why would anyone want to that?

Oh that's right ........circular reasoning is bad because it disproves the objective statement 'god exists' ....there is no data to support the conclusion, and the bible is not data. The hyper rationalistic AFD cannot accept that a story is just that, a story to be read  subjectively.

The answer for AFD is to claim circular reasoning is drawing a conclusion from data BECAUSE the data AGREES with other relevant data.

The 'logic' here is that because the data can have an imaginary line drawn from one point to another producing a putative circle, box, triangle, polygon, etc etc then somehow that is 'circular' reasoning, and the same thing as reaching a conclusion based on a false premise.

No the the false premise is his.
AFD: "the flud is fact" (premise) the data does not agree with the premise.

Thus AFD's conclusion is the data is false.

AFD circular reasoning means, that in very simple terms for your simple calcified childlike brain, the premise, the idea, the thought, a creative product of the human mind, or for some a  delusion drives the conclusion ......not the data.

You want to prove the flud without circular reasoning, fine provide the evidence (and a 2500 year old tale from sand farmers in the middle east is not evidence)

You're not simply irrational -- you're a-rational, a black hole of rationality. You are rational thought's antigen.


As I have discovered since the start of all this ID nonsense, AFD and the whole creo-nutcase movement are rationally irrational to the point of hyper-rationality.

If you asked AFD to do a literary analysis of say Kafka's "Metamorphosis" let alone the Flud Myth he just couldn't even begin.

His mind is physically wired only to accept objective facts, everything for him must be factualised(an internal cognitive reality that is projected onto the external world, essentially to reduce the existential pain of being...woe is me I'm going to die) and that is his weakest point.

For him the Flud IS fact, that is internal objective reality for him, the alternative for him is nihilism.

He simply is unable to trust his judgment of subjective matters, that has been removed  from him by his strict adherence to worshiping his parents moral codes via the Bible. The book is his subjective measure and it is not sure about anything, to kill or not, any crazy view can be supported via the bible or any sacred text for that matter.  

The sad thing is that nihilism IS the biggest single danger FROM Fundamentalists, if they can't make the world accept their view they invariably attempt to destroy it (before it destroys their reality), one way or the other.
Think McVeigh and Bin Ladin at the one extreme and the attempt to destroy science education(actually... it's tests for truth) at the other.

Why? No one listened to their cries for help. When they get an audience though what do they tell us?" The whole world hates them" and they love it, for them it provides their energy source in a twisted way.

Now when all the data/evidence/external objective reality show their reality does not exist, except in their minds, they cannot make the intuitive jump required to discard their internal objective reality(such as it is) ...to do so would require them to destroy their ego's(be born again in religious psychological terms), they would literally lose their grip on reality (more than they already have), their whole identities would disappear, their personae are welded to a totally schizoid world view.

AFD had his ego destroyed as a child and refashioned into a hard core believer in the unbelievable.

That is why  he cannot afford to lose his tenuous grip on what is left for him.

He must, absolutely must, find any discordant information(thruthiness) that can support his fantasy/delusion no matter how wild or insane.

Even if that means giving new meaning to words  opposing his internal reality or world view.

Orwell fully realized this, he also realized language itself can be a trap and he distrusted the ability of language to properly communicate reality except in science.


AFD is physically incapable of transforming himself into a whole man, he will die as half a man.

No, actually I doubt very much that he knows on any conscious level.


Ah AFD don't listen to this I have to just let the guys know something so .....ah just stand over there for a minute..thanks.

(whispering)
Well guys AFD ...being a hyper-rationalist does know one thing, circular reasoning in it's true sense (begging the question) demolishes his god.

He's got that much, worked out.

Now since that is the problem for his little game he is trying to hammer that square peg into sciences data=>deduction round hole.

Now, as has been demonstrated, he hasn't quite worked out that circular reasoning doesn't actually mean connecting dots that look like a circle because he can't disassociate data from imagination...to him they are one and the same. He has no imagination, his reality (The product of some very serious brainwashing) to him is as real as the rocks in the Grand Canyon.

Rather than going to his church, which while amusing and I personally would find it very gratifying to kick his ass around it (in the nicest possible way of course) the challenge should be for AFD to work as a geologist's assistant for a month then go into a lab where they do Radio metric dating. Like Boy George cleaning up the garbage in NY.

Having said that I know having met a couple of  geologists who are Christian Fundamentalists no amount of education can fix their problem.

Of course I believe in miracles.  But God does not use them often.  He allows natural processes to operate most of the time.


I love it when these people unconsciously let 'god' speak through their own mouths.

AFD takes the chicken way out:

Of course I believe in miracles.

1. Some people may miraculously believe my lies
2. No fact is too firm not to explained by a miracle where my ignorance make me blind.
3. If I didn't my world would vanish.
4. They are very convenient when it comes to making insurance claims


But God does not use them often.
 
1. Otherwise that would devalue the rarity, who's gonna buy lottery tickets if the same person keeps winning them.
2. When someone else from a competing cult makes such an outrageous claim I can safely scoff.

I did a short course with an oil well logging company many years ago as a 'mud logger' and while my background is in electronics most of the people on the course had studied one of the earth sciences and had a huge advantage over me.
They knew what shale and dolomite was right off the bat. You should brush up on your chemistry.

So don't expect to go there 'to be enlightened' or even 'to debunk'.

I have also worked in system support for oil companies setting up some of the software they use for seismic  processing, petrochemical analysis (wire line logging), mapping, core analysis, Palynology (the study of fossilized pollen used to date core samples) and the software they use to study the 'chemical kitchens' deep under ground that make the crude from organic matter deposited millions of years ago. They only drill when all the data is in and even then there are no guarantees.

The gold eyelids were long gone, however, revealing masterful craftsmanship that must have seemed very convincing 2500 years ago, much like a 747 does to the masses today.....They don't care how it works, they just pay their money and climb the ladder.

The whole ID crowd have absolutely no idea of time and it's relation to nature.

Soils that formed at the end of the Flood and at the beginning of the post-Flood period could have been buried by subsequent geological processes such as flooding, volcanism, and wind blown processes. These would be true paleosols. In fact, the whole idea of paleosols was first developed by geomorphologists and soil scientists to explore soils in the Quaternary. The study of these post-Flood soils was then extended throughout geologic time to more ancient rocks based on the assumption of uniformitarianism.22

Nice links Jon.  They show how to date grains of IGNEOUS origin


Oh so you agree RM dating proves IGNEOUS rocks are older than 6000 years.

Why didn't you just say that?

When did the big bang happen AFD.?

How old are the 20k-35k year old cave paintings in France?

Why didn't the more than 100,000 year old Greenland icecap melt when your super heated hidrawlick fludde water covered it ?

Where did all the excess water go?

What geologic layer marks your fludde and why did the processes (over time) after that layer change with respect to the layers before.

IF your fairy tale fludde took place at the layer you pick then that dates every other layer both above AND below .......AFD, so be very careful.

Every time MacNeil was called to account he tossed some meat to the wolves in the form of Evolutionary Psychology papers detailing his view religions(or more precisely mythological world views) are behind wars from paleolithic times...which someone picked him up on and he failed to reply.

He did go on about politeness A LOT...so did Pim.

I chimed in near the end and tried to draw a few snipers PG chickened out or lost interest.

Despite his innumerable achievements, Hapner faces many experts who remain skeptical and have even declared his findings corrupt, irrational, irresponsible, and unscientific.

"It's true that I've been condemned and ridiculed by the world's most prominent chemists, as well as by a good number of amateur hobbyists," Hapner said as he rubbed a balloon on his head to demonstrate a basic principle of hydrodynamics. "But then, wasn't Einstein ridiculed when he unveiled his theory of relativity, or Copernicus when he posited that the Earth revolved around the sun? True, I have since proved them both wrong, but at least they took risks."


The nuttiness of the BeheDembskiNelsonWellsBerlinski-tards of the world, does in fact call into question all scientific findings to the extent that IF their pseudoscience was true it would prove not just Einstein and Copernicus wrong but ALL science wrong.

Now of course they would try to deny this fact, since they know themselves and the whole world knows they do not have the 'Intelligence' to prove either Einstein or Copernicus wrong (except AFD who thinks they are all wrong...snicker) but they ARE in effect saying that the METHOD that Einstein and Copernicus used, is invalid.

What if Einstein and Copernicus had said "Hmmm ....X looks designed and cannot be simplified ...thus we call it an artifact of Y"..which (apparently) is the Gospel of John stated magicmatically or *insert favorite deity* or Little Extraterrestrial Creatures which have not EVER been seen..... except by UFO crazies.

Taking their new 'scientific method' to its logical conclusion they do in fact end up in AFD's position....an insanity impervious to reason and thus totally irrelevant....hence the desperation of trying to connect Hitler and Darwin...they should have stopped when they were ahead .....Hitler was a leader who used religious fervor and martyrdom to drive his mania.

Just a quick question AFD what was the average life span of dinosaurs and how many begats of dinosaurs were there before the fairy fludde.

what was your time line again

Year 0 ...Genesis
Year 1500....Flud.

So each dino say had say a 20 year life span and  there were 75 generations of dino by fludde time. ...right?

So over the 1st 74 generations of dino .....they got buried somewhere right?

Now please date each layer of dinos before the fludde and show where the humans and other mammals were buried with those dinos.

Should be very easy AFD there were only 1500 years right.

Don't worry about those lying paleos AFD who say the dinos were wiped out 65Million years ago.

Can We Really Believe the Dating Systems?

We have covered a lot of convincing evidence that the Earth was created a very long time ago. The agreement of many different dating methods, both radiometric and non-radiometric, over hundreds of thousands of samples, is very convincing. Yet, some Christians question whether we can believe something so far back in the past. My answer is that it is similar to believing in other things of the past. It only differs in degree. Why do you believe Abraham Lincoln ever lived? Because it would take an extremely elaborate scheme to make up his existence, including forgeries, fake photos, and many other things, and besides, there is no good reason to simply have made him up. Well, the situation is very similar for the dating of rocks, only we have rock records rather than historical records. Consider the following:

There are well over forty different radiometric dating methods, and scores of other methods such as tree rings and ice cores.
All of the different dating methods agree--they agree a great majority of the time over millions of years of time. Some Christians make it sound like there is a lot of disagreement, but this is not the case. The disagreement in values needed to support the position of young-Earth proponents would require differences in age measured by orders of magnitude (e.g., factors of 10,000, 100,000, a million, or more). The differences actually found in the scientific literature are usually close to the margin of error, usually a few percent, not orders of magnitude!
Vast amounts of data overwhelmingly favor an old Earth. Several hundred laboratories around the world are active in radiometric dating. Their results consistently agree with an old Earth. Over a thousand papers on radiometric dating were published in scientifically recognized journals in the last year, and hundreds of thousands of dates have been published in the last 50 years. Essentially all of these strongly favor an old Earth.
Radioactive decay rates have been measured for over sixty years now for many of the decay clocks without any observed changes. And it has been close to a hundred years since the uranium-238 decay rate was first determined.
Both long-range and short-range dating methods have been successfully verified by dating lavas of historically known ages over a range of several thousand years.
The mathematics for determining the ages from the observations is relatively simple.
The last three points deserve more attention. Some Christians have argued that something may be slowly changing with time so all the ages look older than they really are. The only two quantities in the exponent of a decay rate equation are the half-life and the time. So for ages to appear longer than actual, all the half-lives would have to be changing in sync with each other. One could consider that time itself was changing if that happened (remember that our clocks are now standardized to atomic clocks!;). And such a thing would have to have occurred without our detection in the last hundred years, which is already 5% of the way back to the time

page 20

of Christ.

Beyond this, scientists have now used a "time machine" to prove that the half-lives of radioactive species were the same millions of years ago. This time machine does not allow people to actually go back in time, but it does allow scientists to observe ancient events from a long way away. The time machine is called the telescope. Because God's universe is so large, images from distant events take a long time to get to us. Telescopes allow us to see supernovae (exploding stars) at distances so vast that the pictures take hundreds of thousands to millions of years to arrive at the Earth. So the events we see today actually occurred hundreds of thousands to millions of years ago. And what do we see when we look back in time? Much of the light following a supernova blast is powered by newly created radioactive parents. So we observe radiometric decay in the supernova light. The half-lives of decays occurring hundreds of thousands of years ago are thus carefully recorded! These half-lives completely agree with the half-lives measured from decays occurring today. We must conclude that all evidence points towards unchanging radioactive half-lives.

Some individuals have suggested that the speed of light must have been different in the past, and that the starlight has not really taken so long to reach us. However, the astronomical evidence mentioned above also suggests that the speed of light has not changed, or else we would see a significant apparent change in the half-lives of these ancient radioactive decays.

Doubters Still Try

Some doubters have tried to dismiss geologic dating with a sleight of hand by saying that no rocks are completely closed systems (that is, that no rocks are so isolated from their surroundings that they have not lost or gained some of the isotopes used for dating). Speaking from an extreme technical viewpoint this might be true--perhaps 1 atom out of 1,000,000,000,000 of a certain isotope has leaked out of nearly all rocks, but such a change would make an immeasurably small change in the result. The real question to ask is, "is the rock sufficiently close to a closed system that the results will be same as a really closed system?" Since the early 1960s many books have been written on this subject. These books detail experiments showing, for a given dating system, which minerals work all of the time, which minerals work under some certain conditions, and which minerals are likely to lose atoms and give incorrect results. Understanding these conditions is part of the science of geology. Geologists are careful to use the most reliable methods whenever possible, and as discussed above, to test for agreement between different methods.

Some people have tried to defend a young Earth position by saying that the half-lives of radionuclides can in fact be changed, and that this can be done by certain little-understood particles such as neutrinos, muons, or cosmic rays. This is stretching it. While certain particles can cause nuclear changes, they do not change the half-lives. The nuclear changes are well understood and are nearly always very minor in rocks. In fact the main nuclear changes in rocks are the very radioactive decays we are talking about.

There are only three quite technical instances where a half-life changes, and these do not affect the dating methods we have discussed.

1. Only one technical exception occurs under terrestrial conditions, and this is not for an isotope used for dating. According to theory, electron-capture is the most likely type of decay to show changes with pressure or chemical combination, and this should be most pronounced for very light elements. The artificially-produced isotope, beryllium-7 has been shown to change by up to 1.5%, depending on its chemical environment (Earth Planet. Sci. Lett. 171, 325-328, 1999; see also Earth Planet. Sci. Lett. 195, 131-139, 2002). In another experiment, a half-life change of a small fraction of a percent was detected when beryllium-7 was subjected to 270,000 atmospheres of pressure, equivalent to depths greater than 450 miles inside the Earth (Science 181, 1163-1164, 1973). All known rocks, with the possible exception of diamonds, are from much shallower depths. In fact, beryllium-7 is not used for dating rocks, as it has a half-life of only 54 days, and heavier atoms are even less subject to these minute changes, so the dates of rocks made by electron-capture decays would only be off by at most a few hundredths of a percent.

page 21

2. Physical conditions at the center of stars or for cosmic rays differ very greatly from anything experienced in rocks on or in the Earth. Yet, self-proclaimed "experts" often confuse these conditions. Cosmic rays are very, very high-energy atomic nuclei flying through space. The electron-capture decay mentioned above does not take place in cosmic rays until they slow down. This is because the fast-moving cosmic ray nuclei do not have electrons surrounding them, which are necessary for this form of decay. Another case is material inside of stars, which is in a plasma state where electrons are not bound to atoms. In the extremely hot stellar environment, a completely different kind of decay can occur. ' Bound-state beta decay' occurs when the nucleus emits an electron into a bound electronic state close to the nucleus. This has been observed for dysprosium-163 and rhenium-187 under very specialized conditions simulating the interior of stars (Phys. Rev. Lett., 69, 2164-2167; Phys. Rev. Lett., 77, 5190-5193, 1996). All normal matter, such as everything on Earth, the Moon, meteorites, etc. has electrons in normal positions, so these instances never apply to rocks, or anything colder than several hundred thousand degrees.

As an example of incorrect application of these conditions to dating, one young-Earth proponent suggested that God used plasma conditions when He created the Earth a few thousand years ago. This writer suggested that the rapid decay rate of rhenium under extreme plasma conditions might explain why rocks give very old ages instead of a young-Earth age. This writer neglected a number of things, including: a) plasmas only affect a few of the dating methods. More importantly, b) rocks and hot gaseous plasmas are completely incompatible forms of matter! The material would have to revert back from the plasma state before it could form rocks. In such a scenario, as the rocks cooled and hardened, their ages would be completely reset to zero as described in previous sections. If this person's scenario were correct, instead of showing old ages, all the rocks should show a uniform ~4,000 year age of creation. That is obviously not what is observed.

3. The last case also involves very fast-moving matter. It has been demonstrated by atomic clocks in very fast spacecraft. These atomic clocks slow down very slightly (only a second or so per year) as predicted by Einstein's theory of relativity. No rocks in our solar system are going fast enough to make a noticeable change in their dates.

These cases are very specialized, and all are well understood. None of these cases alter the dates of rocks either on Earth or other planets in the solar system. The conclusion once again is that half-lives are completely reliable in every context for the dating of rocks on Earth and even on other planets. The Earth and all creation appears to be very ancient.

Apparent Age?

It would not be inconsistent with the scientific evidence to conclude that God made everything relatively recently, but with the appearance of great age, just as Genesis 1 and 2 tell of God making Adam as a fully grown human (which implies the appearance of age). This idea was captured by Phillip Henry Gosse in the book, "Omphalos: An Attempt to Untie the Geological Knot", written just two years before Darwin's "Origin of Species". The idea of a false appearance of great age is a philosophical and theological matter that we won't go into here. The main drawback--and it is a strong one--is that this makes God appear to be a deceiver. However, some

page 22

people have no problem with this. Certainly whole civilizations have been incorrect (deceived?) in their scientific and theological ideas in the past. Whatever the philosophical conclusions, it is important to note that an apparent old Earth is consistent with the great amount of scientific evidence.

Rightly Handling the Word of Truth

As Christians it is of great importance that we understand God's word correctly. Yet from the middle ages up until the 1700s people insisted that the Bible taught that the Earth, not the Sun, was the center of the solar system. It wasn't that people just thought it had to be that way; they actually quoted scriptures: "The Earth is firmly fixed; it shall not be moved" (Psalm 104:5), or "the sun stood still" (Joshua 10:13; why should it say the sun stood still if it is the Earth's rotation that causes day and night?), and many other passages. I am afraid the debate over the age of the Earth has many similarities. But I am optimistic. Today there are many Christians who accept the reliability of geologic dating, but do not compromise the spiritual and historical inerrancy of God's word. While a full discussion of Genesis 1 is not given here, references are given below to a few books that deal with that issue.

As scientists, we deal daily with what God has revealed about Himself through the created universe. The psalmist marveled at how God, Creator of the universe, could care about humans: "When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place, what is man that You are mindful of him, the son of man that You care for him?" (Psalm 8:3-4). Near the beginning of the twenty-first century we can marvel all the more, knowing how vast the universe is, how ancient are the rocks and hills, and how carefully our environment has been designed. Truly God is more awesome than we can imagine!

APPENDIX: Common Misconceptions Regarding Radiometric Dating Methods

There are a number of misconceptions that seem especially prevalent among Christians. Most of these topics are covered in the above discussion, but they are reviewed briefly here for clarity.

1. Radiometric dating is based on index fossils whose dates were assigned long before radioactivity was discovered.

This is not at all true, though it is implied by some young-Earth literature. Radiometric dating is based on the half-lives of the radioactive isotopes. These half-lives have been measured over the last 40-90 years. They are not calibrated by fossils.

2. No one has measured the decay rates directly; we only know them from inference.

Decay rates have been directly measured over the last 40-100 years. In some cases a batch of the pure parent material is weighed and then set aside for a long time and then the resulting daughter material is weighed. In many cases it is easier to detect radioactive decays by the energy burst that each decay gives off. For this a batch of the pure parent material is carefully weighed and then put in front of a Geiger counter or gamma-ray detector. These instruments count the number of decays over a long time.

3. If the half-lives are billions of years, it is impossible to determine them from measuring over just a few years or decades.

The example given in the section titled, "The Radiometric Clocks" shows that an accurate determination of the half-life is easily achieved by direct counting of decays over a decade or shorter. This is because a) all decay curves have exactly the same shape (Fig. 1), differing only in the half-life, and b) trillions of decays can be counted in one year even using only a fraction of a gram of material with a half-life of a billion years. Additionally, lavas of historically known ages have been correctly dated even using methods with long half-lives.

4. The decay rates are poorly known, so the dates are inaccurate.

Most of the decay rates used for dating rocks are known to within two percent. Uncertainties are only slightly higher for rhenium (5%), lutetium (3%), and beryllium (3%), discussed in connection with Table 1. Such small uncertainties are no reason to dismiss radiometric dating. Whether a rock is 100 million years or 102 million years old does not make a great deal of difference.

5. A small error in the half-lives leads to a very large error in the date.

Since exponents are used in the dating equations, it is possible for people to think this might be true, but it is not. If a half-life is off by 2%, it will only lead to a 2% error in the date.

6. Decay rates can be affected by the physical surroundings.

This is not true in the context of dating rocks. Radioactive atoms used for dating have been subjected to extremes of heat, cold, pressure, vacuum, acceleration, and strong chemical reactions far beyond anything experienced by rocks, without any significant change. The only exceptions, which are not relevant to dating rocks, are discussed under the section, "Doubters Still Try", above.

page 24

7. A small change in the nuclear forces probably accelerated nuclear clocks during the first day of creation a few thousand years ago, causing the spuriously old radiometric dates of rocks.

Rocks are dated from the time of their formation. For it to have any bearing on the radiometric dates of rocks, such a change of nuclear forces must have occurred after the Earth (and the rocks) were formed. To make the kind of difference suggested by young-Earth proponents, the half-lives must be shortened from several billion years down to several thousand years--a factor of at least a million. But to shorten half-lives by factors of a million would cause large physical changes. As one small example, recall that the Earth is heated substantially by radioactive decay. If that decay is speeded up by a factor of a million or so, the tremendous heat pulse would easily melt the whole Earth, including the rocks in question! No radiometric ages would appear old if this happened.

8. The decay rates might be slowing down over time, leading to incorrect old dates.

There are two ways we know this didn't happen: a) we have checked them out with "time machines", and b) it doesn't make sense mathematically. Both of these points are explained in the section titled, "Can We Really Believe the Dating Systems?"

9. We should measure the "full-life" (the time at which all of the parent is gone) rather than the half-life (the time when half of it is gone).

Unlike sand in an hourglass, which drops at a constant rate independent of how much remains in the top half of the glass, the number of radioactive decays is proportional to the amount of parent remaining. Figure 1 shows how after 2 half-lives, 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4 is left, and so on. After 10 half-lives there is 2-10 = 0.098% remaining. A half-life is more easy to define than some point at which almost all of the parent is gone. Scientists sometimes instead use the term "mean life", that is, the average life of a parent atom. The mean life is always 1/ln(2) = 1.44 times the half-life. For most of us half-life is easier to understand.

10. To date a rock one must know the original amount of the parent element. But there is no way to measure how much parent element was originally there.

It is very easy to calculate the original parent abundance, but that information is not needed to date the rock. All of the dating schemes work from knowing the present abundances of the parent and daughter isotopes. The original abundance N0, of the parent is simply N0 = N ekt, where N is the present abundance, t is time, and k is a constant related to the half life.

11. There is little or no way to tell how much of the decay product, that is, the daughter isotope, was originally in the rock, leading to anomalously old ages.

A good part of this article is devoted to explaining how one can tell how much of a given element or isotope was originally present. Usually it involves using more than one sample from a given rock. It is done by comparing the ratios of parent and daughter isotopes relative to a stable isotope for samples with different relative amounts of the parent isotope. For example, in the rubidium-strontium method one compares rubidium-87/strontium-86 to strontium-87/strontium-86 for different minerals. From this one can determine how much of the daughter isotope would be present if there had been no parent isotope. This is the same as the initial amount (it would not change if there were no parent isotope to decay). Figures 4 and 5, and the accompanying explanation, tell how this is done most of the time. While this is not absolutely 100% foolproof, comparison of several dating methods will always show whether the given date is reliable.

page 25

12. There are only a few different dating methods.

This article has listed and discussed a number of different radiometric dating methods and has also briefly described a number of non-radiometric dating methods. There are actually many more methods out there. Well over forty different radiometric dating methods are in use, and a number of non-radiogenic methods not even mentioned here.

13. "Radiation halos" in rocks prove that the Earth was young.

This refers to tiny halos of crystal damage surrounding spots where radioactive elements are concentrated in certain rocks. Halos thought to be from polonium, a short-lived element produced from the decay of uranium, have been found in some rocks. A plausible explanation for a halo from such a short-lived element is that these were not produced by an initial concentration of the radioactive element. Rather, as water seeped through cracks in the minerals, a chemical change caused newly-formed polonium to drop out of solution at a certain place and almost immediately decay there. A halo would build up over a long period of time even though the center of the halo never contained more than a few atoms of polonium at one time. "Hydrothermal" effects can act in ways that at first seem strange, such as the well-known fact that gold--a chemically un-reactive metal with very low solubilities--is concentrated along quartz veins by the action of water over long periods of time. Other researchers have found halos produced by an indirect radioactive decay effect called hole diffusion, which is an electrical effect in a crystal. These results suggest that the halos in question are not from short-lived isotopes after all.

At any rate, halos from uranium inclusions are far more common. Because of uranium's long half-lives, these halos take at least several hundred million years to form. Because of this, most people agree that halos provide compelling evidence for a very old Earth.

14. A young-Earth research group reported that they sent a rock erupted in 1980 from Mount Saint Helens volcano to a dating lab and got back a potassium-argon age of several million years. This shows we should not trust radiometric dating.

There are indeed ways to "trick" radiometric dating if a single dating method is improperly used on a sample. Anyone can move the hands on a clock and get the wrong time. Likewise, people actively looking for incorrect radiometric dates can in fact get them. Geologists have known for over forty years that the potassium-argon method cannot be used on rocks only twenty to thirty years old. Publicizing this incorrect age as a completely new finding was inappropriate. The reasons are discussed in the Potassium-Argon Dating section above. Be assured that multiple dating methods used together on igneous rocks are almost always correct unless the sample is too difficult to date due to factors such as metamorphism or a large fraction of xenoliths.

15. Low abundances of helium in zircon grains show that these minerals are much younger than radiometric dating suggests.

Zircon grains are important for uranium-thorium-lead dating because they contain abundant uranium and thorium parent isotopes. Helium is also produced from the decay of uranium and thorium. However, as a gas of very small atomic size, helium tends to escape rather easily. Researchers have studied the rates of diffusion of helium from zircons, with the prediction from one study by a young-Earth creationist suggesting that it should be quantitatively retained despite its atomic size. The assumptions of the temperature conditions of the rock over time are most likely unrealistic in this case.

16. The fact that radiogenic helium and argon are still degassing from the Earth's interior prove that the Earth must be young.

The radioactive parent isotopes, uranium and potassium, have very long half-lives, as shown in Table 1. These parents still exist in abundance in the Earth's interior, and are still producing helium and argon. There is also a time lag between the production of the daughter products and their degassing. If the Earth were geologically very young, very little helium and argon would have been produced. One can compare the amount of argon in the atmosphere to what would be expected from decay of potassium over 4.6 billion years, and in fact it is consistent.

page 26

17. The waters of Noah's flood could have leached radioactive isotopes out of rocks, disturbing their ages.

This is actually suggested on one website! While water can affect the ability to date rock surfaces or other weathered areas, there is generally no trouble dating interior portions of most rocks from the bottom of lakes, rivers, and oceans. Additionally, if ages were disturbed by leaching, the leaching would affect different isotopes at vastly different rates. Ages determined by different methods would be in violent disagreement. If the flood were global in scope, why then would we have any rocks for which a number of different methods all agree with each other? In fact, close agreement between methods for most samples is a hallmark of radiometric dating.

18. We know the Earth is much younger because of non-radiogenic indicators such as the sedimentation rate of the oceans.

There are a number of parameters which, if extrapolated from the present without taking into account the changes in the Earth over time, would seem to suggest a somewhat younger Earth. These arguments can sound good on a very simple level, but do not hold water when all the factors are considered. Some examples of these categories are the decaying magnetic field (not mentioning the widespread evidence for magnetic reversals), the saltiness of the oceans (not counting sedimentation!;), the sedimentation rate of the oceans (not counting Earthquakes and crustal movement, that is, plate tectonics), the relative paucity of meteorites on the Earth's surface (not counting weathering or plate tectonics), the thickness of dust on the moon (without taking into account brecciation over time), the Earth-Moon separation rate (not counting changes in tides and internal forces), etc. While these arguments do not stand up when the complete picture is considered, the case for a very old creation of the Earth fits well in all areas considered.

19. Only atheists and liberals are involved in radiometric dating.

The fact is that there are a number of Bible-believing Christians who are involved in radiometric dating, and who can see its validity firsthand. A great number of other Christians are firmly convinced that radiometric dating shows evidence that God created the Earth billions, not thousands, of years ago.

page 27

20. Different dating techniques usually give conflicting results.

This is not true at all. The fact that dating techniques most often agree with each other is why scientists tend to trust them in the first place. Nearly every college and university library in the country has periodicals such as Science, Nature, and specific geology journals that give the results of dating studies. The public is usually welcome to (and should!;) browse in these libraries. So the results are not hidden; people can go look at the results for themselves. Over a thousand research papers are published a year on radiometric dating, essentially all in agreement. Besides the scientific periodicals that carry up-to-date research reports, specific suggestions are given below for further reading, both for textbooks, non-classroom books, and web resources.

Thanks DM I always confuse the Kakapo with the Kea.

The NZ Kea is renowned for it's complete disregard for the proper treatment of cars and camping equipment. While I was last visiting my home country, we parked at Franz Joseph Glacier on the West Coast of the South Island.
A flock of friendly and cheeky Keas permanently inhabit the car park and scrounge for food. They break car antennas, pull out the rubber door seals with their beaks, are quite fearless, behave quite comically and seem to have real attitude. They will walk right up to you and peck at your shoes if you let them. I have heard stories of campers returning to their camp sites in the mountains to find their tents and sleeping bags shredded.

Ah yes good old DT ......he carries the credibility of the entire ID movement to new lows....if that were at all possible.

Just had to delurk for this.  

The actual expression is more like:

"Hy's laer as slangkak se skaduwee op die seebodem."

Trans: He's lower than snake shit's shadow on the sea floor.

It sounds much better in Afrikaans though.

.....Dave, given that you apparently have no respect for the scientific method in your mind. The functionality of the U.S. legal system hinges considerably more on the scientific method and logic than you seem to be able to muster AND it functions so well because of its reliance on the presentation and logical (if emotionally laden) explanation of that evidence. You will find that the areligious (not anti-religious) nature of our legal system and its avoidance of a priori religious stances has ensured a much higher degree of fairness than those systems that existed before it.


AFD and his ilk must maintain a kind of post modernist funk where the rules of evidence are carelessly twisted if not completely disregarded to create the impression they are following them.

That is why the only way they can ever hope their insane version of reality will be accepted is to have SOTUS change the rules of evidence.

Of course if that were to happen the rule of Law would be completely bankrupt and the Crazies would be in charge of the Asylum....one can only speculate what would happen then...reasoning people becoming unreasonable?

Fortunately there are some people who realize this, however given that their dear leader Mr 30% ...Korn God GWB has failed dismally to convince even 'some of the people' ....the 30% being the proverbial backwash, I for one can't see that happening soon.

Xianity rules OK

I'm now going to take this thread seriously.

1. Western science owes everything to pre-Christian Athens and Rome and not a shekel to Jerusalem.

2. The whole premise of GOP and his stupidity pedlars if they had their way would shift a Eurocentric quality to a Levantine lavatory.

3.The church almost succeeded in completely wiping out centuries of learning by around 500CE, until the Renaissance when commerce outside of the church reduced its power. Art and science carried on from where the pagan Greeks left off 1000 years earlier.

Western science is a triumph of reason over superstition something the Christian church worked religiously to suppress until it's power was reduced.

...Blah goddunit Blah blah blah....Christ has assumed the fullness of our humanity and entered every aspect of our reality. He thereby renders all our studies the study of himself.

“Intelligent Design: The Bridge Between Science & Theology” pg. 210


Isn't that just a long winded way of saying that god is in everything, and around everything, was responsible for setting up the universe etc etc?
So once again it proves that ID supporters have a religious agenda.


Indeed that scion of the Enlightenment... Spinoza said something like that. If god actually existed ...it would have to be in everything or not exist at all.

But once they get rid of Darwinism, that world view will have to be modified...god is everywhere .....except that bit over there and that other bit.

....One thing that puzzles me though,  they seem to talk about this Jesus fellow as if he were alive.

Does he have his own TV show or something?....maybe he is on talk back radio ......we don't get all that stuff down under.

Can someone direct me to his Blog. Any merchandise?

You know a cool long white robe and sandals outfit with a neat logo with black stripes or checkers would go over well , when I go for a drink at my local pub I want people to know what team I support.

The wine would have to be Kosher of course but I know some chicks really go for the Jesus sandals 'look' and if any of the hard men take offense to me pulling their chicks I can give 'em a quick 'sermon on the mount' and tell them off for being materialists.

If that doesn't work then there is always the jump over the bar and grab the cash trays and spill them on the floor and rant on about how they offend god by charging for one of god's gifts...the water of life.

Normally by that time the bouncers appear and I seem to leave without my feet touching the floor...which further strengthens my case for being the son of god.

Walking on water...pfffft...a simple optical illusion on a hot day in the desert...but leaving a bar 1 foot above the ground ? That takes talent.

....Oh where was I now?

Being the one true son of god has it's dangers, please don't mention Easter, whenever I head down to the hardware store and ask for a hammer and a nail I get the strangest looks, other than that the people at the unemployment office just don't 'get it'; When I say my talents include turning water in to wine the same thing always happens..they call the supervisor and he ALWAYS makes the smart remark "And I suppose you do the loaves and fishes number as well?". At that point I have tell them god doesn't like sarcasm and they tell me to F***k off.

Lets give Diamond's comments some cultural context.

Someone I know fought in the Zimbabwean war of independence in the mid '70's as member of what was then the white minority government of  Ian Smith's Rhodesian Light Infantry.

His part in the war was fought on foot by small teams of men armed with rifles in remote bushland.

Both sides used essentially the guerrilla tactics of ambush and withdrawal in the face of a superior opposition in sparse bushland. A noisy modern army can drive around all day and think they own the land because the enemy is too smart to engage them until the balance is equaled either by nightfall or since that is harder now with the advent of night sights, attack their means of transport with remote controlled bombs.

To be a successful soldier in that environment one had to be extremely fit, able to walk for days carrying a heavy load, resourceful and alert to the slightest sign of danger while using all ones senses including smell.

Early in the conflict the Rhodesian army found that using soap in the field gave their enemy advance warning downwind of an approaching unit because perfume in  the soap carried far in a breeze, so while on tour no one washed.

At that time the war in Vietnam ceased and a few American soldiers of fortune joined up to continue their adrenaline rush.

My friend told me the ones who joined his unit were next to useless and in fact a real danger, they could not actually walk through bush without making a racket and shot at anything that gave them a start thus signaling any enemy for miles around to their presence, plus they thought they were invincible and hence made easy targets.

Ones environment shapes ones awareness just ask city slicker Dick 'shoot me in the face' Cheney.

If gop and I suspect most of us were to be placed in the middle of New Guinea by helicopter without our normal accouterments, but enough native words to survive, we would seem to Mr. Anthropologist to be clumsy, unaware and just plain stupid in some of the normal day to day tasks that those people were engaged in, digging yams with a stick and hunting wildlife with a bow and arrow all the while making sure nothing nasty bit you as you walked through the undergrowth, and not bitching like a pampered tourist.

Once while I was in Sumatra 32 years ago I went into some paddy fields with the family I was staying with. They had spent since sunrise digging up peanuts with small hand tools and their 13 year old daughter was given the task of carrying a large sack of them (weighing from memory around 80lbs)  balanced on her head  for about 1/2 a kilometer along the narrow mud walls of the paddy fields. I was reasonably fit and gallantly offered to carry them for her. Imagine my embarrassment when  I struggled  with this large heavy load without a pack frame, wheelbarrow, ropes or straps to get a purchase on the load and negotiate the 1 foot wide track.
She just popped it on her head and took off without the slightest trouble.

That is what Diamond means by awareness and apparent intelligence, pure and simple.

Had the tables been turned and our (and their)ancestors migrated in different directions his premise is that the Melanesians would have become just as technologically advanced as Europeans are now, given the same natural resources.

Great White Hunter Gop, I have to say in either environment Western or whatever you remain singularly and recalcitrantly stupider than a dumb stone, not because you are unintelligent but because you are simply incapable of seeing what is obvious to everyone else as the result of living in what seems to me, a basement all your life.

("ancient" in quotes b/c I of course believe that ALL bacteria are only about 6000 years old.)


Don't BS us AFD you don't believe that.

You think it is true because you think a circular arguement is true. Observe

AFD:The world is 6000 years old.
Why?
AFD: Because the Bible (or more correctly some 19th Century theological nutter) says so.
How do you know that is true:
AFD: Because the Bible (or more correctly some 19th Century theological nutter) says its true.

However, the circular arguement is a logical fallacy and by definition false.

You 'believe' something that is false pure and simple, truly a credit to 'stupidanity' there AFD

You know it is wrong, you may not 'believe' that  bacteria have been in existance for billions of years although you know that the evidence supports it, and it must be true, the real test for you AFD is .....does it pass the 'stupidanity' test.... of course it does ...so the earth being 6000 years old MUST BE FALSE.

K.E :The following page has the best "guesstimates" and information I've seen so far in my limited browsing on bacterial diversity and numbers of species. Basically, they say this: "the smallest drop of temperate seawater or a grain of agricultural soil will also yield myriad 16S rRNA sequences that are new to science"
http://www.pnas.org/cgi/content/full/99/16/10234
THAT paper basically says we have no models to determine the actual diversity and it cites an older paper that says " the entire bacterial diversity of the sea may be unlikely to exceed 2 x 10^6, while a ton of soil could contain 4 x 10^6 different taxa. These are preliminary estimates that may change as we gain a greater understanding of the nature of prokaryotic species abundance curves." http://www.pnas.org/cgi....psecsha




So AFD since you accept that science says that all life on earth started as simple cellular life can your creation science explain why there is such abundant diversity of bacteria without using the Theory of Evolution ?

Why is that AFT wipe?

Well the theory of evolution is so simple even a child can understand it, they can use it straight away if they are taught problem solving using the scientific method.

( as an aside that is why the Bible boys are so sh*t scared of it)

The ToE allows a scientist to make predictions about what will happen to say a virus if people over medicate on anti-virals or this AFUD..

Since each Human has enough unique DNA to allow a forensic identification with enough reliability to be used in a court of law and AT THE SAME TIME inherited DNA that allows identification of distant family members then there should be a method to identify common DNA among various ethnic groups of Humans  and or common ancestors ..right?

Mitochondrial Eve
From Wikipedia,
Mitochondrial Eve (mt-mrca) is the name given by researchers to the woman who is the matrilineal most recent common ancestor for all living humans, from whom all mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in living humans is derived. Mitochondrial Eve is the female counterpart of the Y-chromosomal Adam, the patrilineal most recent common ancestor.

She is believed by some to have lived about 150,000 years ago in what is now Ethiopia, Kenya or Tanzania. The time she lived is calculated based on the molecular clock technique of correlating elapsed time with observed genetic drift.



Now Bible  boy what does the Bible say about 150,000 year old African and presumably Black Eve?

Are you saying that the time required to produce that difference through evolution from their LCA is more or less than 2,000,000 to 3,000,000 years ago?

If you want to use DNA to calculate time then why is it that scientists who have proven the mathematical  fact the most-recent common ancestor of all humans alive on Earth today with respect to matrilineal descent (Mitochondrial Eve) is 10's of thousands of years older than Y-chromosome Adam?

SO AFD tell us all, where in your bible does it give the age of 'Eve' as less than 6000 years (fundy 'scholars' don't count BTW) when scientists have proven mathematically that the most-recent common ancestor of all humans alive on Earth today with respect to matrilineal descent (Mitochondrial Eve) is more than 150,000 years old?

Oh is our Dopey Designo-Sargent STILL banging on about his SAT scores????

IIRC he took that at between 20-22 years old several years  AFTER the percentile group he was comparing himself to, when everyone else takes it at 16 or 17.

For each year after 16 years old he loses a few percent AND if he goes into the military he loses even more.

His IQ if calculated back would be around 130 IF he was lucky.

In any case his claim is empty unless he took the SAT test at 16 or 17 years old.

The whole thing about IQ is to express a mental age relative to actual age so if you are 50 years old and have an IQ of 200 your mental age would be 100 or 200 or something which is plainly ridiculous so depending which IQ metric one uses points are take off for age.

Points are also taken off for educational level so that someone with a superior education does not have an advantage over someone who hasn't.

That of course would give Dopey Dave Scott Springer a few points back.

I can't be bothered looking it up again but there is plenty of stuff out there at the tip of DSS' fingers which since he is busy growing mushrooms on his boat to prove evolution wrong, I guess he can't spare the time, being a genius and all.

You should have no touble producing the math to show accelerated DNA changes over that time ....YOU SAY THE EVIDENCE IS OVERWHELMING...well bible boy ....overwhelm me.

And why you even acknowlegde TIME EVEN EXISTING BEFORE 6000 years ago is beyond me ...what's the problem? You deny it so why give it any credence at all, in effect you are denying your own denial.

Deny time before YEAR ZERO and DON'T bring it up again.

YOU ARE DISCREDITING YOUR OWN EVIDENCE which we are STILL all waiting on.

Now since every other branch of the natural sciences and every sane person on earth already knows that the currently proven  age of the universe is around 13,500,000,000 years which Evolutionists have no reason to disagree with....

the people who worship a book which contains a fairy tale about the earths age but no explanation of how DNA works; once again Creationists NEED Deep Time for ToE to work. otherwise the EVIDENCE would support YEAR ZERO as being 6000 years ago.

So cut the crap about time existing before 6000 years ago and give us your (testable and falsifiable) explanation for your hypothesis.

AFD you know you are lying.

AFD a bibliolater by choice states:

Quote
Cedric ... one HUGE difference between a Bond novel and the Book of Genesis:  the writer of the Bond novel never claimed it was actual history ... it was labeled fiction from the start.  The writers of Genesis, on the other hand, ALWAYS claimed that their accounts were actual history ... note the recurring phrase "these are the 'toledoths' of ...", a 'toledoth' being a family history.


Invented works of literature by men. The old testament can only be a collection of the imagined history of the Jewish people, full of kings, conquest, larceny, witchcraft, necromancing, deceit, vanity,incest,egomania,ghosts, slavery, poverty, fear, villains and heroes and an invisible puppet master who only talks through a rabble of rambunctious rabbi's, who say whatever their political masters decree...for a price..the sacrifice of a foreskin.

For a King a bit of skin is nothing, when those priests give herds of 2 legged sheep to him complete with frontal lobotomies or in AFD's case the knife seems to slipped and all he is left with is the reptilian brain (or mind if you are listening skeptic) ....now that is a sacrifice.

Meanwhile AFD furiously digs away in the quote mines for some fools gold and burns the midnight oil to prepare another of his tracts...WHICH FOR HIM look no different to real science texts.

See guys AFD just looks at the big words and the complexity of the sentences to judge whether something looks truthy and sciency enough.

He knows that the great mindless masses he wants to protect from the devils work (evilution) have no interest or ability to digest the details of one sciency looking tract from another.

They only ask one question "Does the guy writing it believe in *** (insert favourite cults projected deity, AFD's is the false god of bibliolatry)"

That to them is the test for "honesty".

For them "honesty" is not something that can be tested since for them they had to accept the "Big Lie or the Noble Lie" as children, after that it was all down hill.

"Does god exist" the child asks ..

Mommy:"Yes"

Child:"Prove it"

Mommy:"Accept my lie child and you won't go to h3ll"

I suspect EE DH AFD was  handing out his lies for jesus cards when he attended his information theory classes.

AFD when biologists talk about Shannon information they are not talking about a subjective meaning in a message i.e. knowledge or interpretation of sensory stimulus such as sound or reading a blog,   but  statistical probabilities of a symbol being corrupted in a physically limited medium that has a numerical measure of the uncertainty of an outcome from one state to another e.g. transmitter to receiver, the medium can be anything such as DNA.

I know you don't understand that but look at it this way suppose the bible was only ever written in Ancient Swahili using an unknown script and no one was allowed to read it because the first page had the warning in all languages past and present (in Ancient Greek script) that the wrath of Hog would be visited upon  anyone who did read it and it had been documented that those who tried were instantly burned to a cinder.

Now .....does that bible contain information as defined by Shannon as a message/knowledge independent set of symbols containing relationship order  OR a subjective  message with meaning communicating an understanding?

AFD you have NO CONCEPT of CONTEXT, your message contains a lie however it is still 'information' but NOT in the Shannon context.

Now AFD back to prothelizing for pseudoscience, where lies ARE it's information.

incidental info on noise.

AFD will be aware that engineers use noise to test radio receivers.

To determine the actual residual noise introduced by a receivers own circuits a calibrated wideband random noise source is hooked up to the receiver and the average power is compared between the noise source on and off thus giving the receivers own noise relative to the calibrated source.

The noise source has to have more noise power output than the inherent noise power of the receiver.

The receivers noise power is described in degrees Kelvin.
This value then can be used to determine the receivers minimum discernible signal sensitivity.
By definition 0 degrees Kelvin is zero noise power.

AFD what is the information contained in that noise?

As long as the receivers own noise is lower than the back ground cosmic noise then the background noise can be measured (as power and thus temperature) .....imagine the surprise of Robert Wilson when he and his partner Arno Penzias at Bell Labs in 1965 hooked up their new super low noise microwave receiver, pointed it at the sky and discovered  noise when none was expected. They thought that pidgeon poo on the antenna was the cause at first.

Robert Wilson later won the 1978 Noble Physics prize for his part in the discovery of CMB.


It turned out they had discovered the background heat energy left over from the Big Bang 13-15 billion years ago first theoretically proposed in 1952.


As with information in the scientific sense, noise itself has many different definitions and uses.

Now here is a question AFD how many years before your GENESIS YEAR ZERO was the BIG BANG? (snicker, giggle)
pssst ...its OK to describe it in NEGATIVE YEARS ...tossbag.


And while you are at it...... quick get an email off to NASA they haven't heard about AFDism

And marshal me to knavery. Let it work;

And blow them at the moon: O, 'tis most sweet,

After a few minutes reflection, I believe that my comments may have been more self-referential than I would have cared to admit.


To paraphrase Alexander Pope

'To project is human, to reflect divine'

It's funny you say that but I have come to the same conclusion several times when replying to AFD. And have had to catch myself and re-do some comments.

AFD's programming has made him completely immune to world views outside his cult.

I've noticed this before in religious cults, the programming is actually REINFORCED by pressure from outside agents to change their view. "Thou will be greatly strengthened by challenges to your faith" etc. etc.

In the end IT IS ALL projection, as BWE's quote of Blake  shows. A consequence of mans ability to 'read minds', a necessary mechanism for social animals. Your dog can read your mind..right? I had my daughters pet rabbit (which she abandoned) playing games  and doing tricks I could read its 'mind'. Any horse person will tell you the same. Those animals are all social animals.


So by 'projection' what do I mean, it is NOT the ability to see into another mind, that is actually empathy, the projected image of the other persons mind inside our mind is only the reflection of our own mind that is self generated and is limited by intelligence,values and experience .  AFD will say he is completely unaware of that (the consummate politician/liar), he honestly believes his mind is bigger than his brain (god for him) and is able to control those with weaker minds around him (to perform god's wishes)
....narcissism.

AFD's god is his projected 'intelligence' which unfortunately for those around him, makes them stullifyingly stupid.

Nothing about zero noise here.  In fact, there is no such thing as a noiseless channel in the real world to my knowledge.  It was a very simple question.  Just "is there more info in the speech or the noise?"  Period.  


AFD you lies for jesus junky.

You remind me of the guy sitting at the front of the class that everyone gratuitously insults every time you open your stupid trap.

YOU ARE TALKING about signal(Shannon information, with redundancy) to noise ratio in a SINGLE channel.

WE ARE talking about TWO CHANNELS where the noise is identical in each channel and the SIGNAL TO NOISE RATIO is well above the channel's physical medium noise.

The first channel has highly compressible DATA (speech)the second channel has DATA (white noise generated by an audio noise source at for example 20db Above the noise floor of the recording equipment) that cannot be compressed.

The channel's physical medium is a DIGITAL RECORDING.

The DATA streams consisting 1's and 0's are then compressed with a lossless compression algorithm.

The gaps in human speech are coded as zero's (for example) PLUS there is a limited amplitude and frequency range for human speech which when converted from the analog domain to the digital domain do not cover the full range of available numbers for each symbol in the data stream.

When the data stream is compressed the SIZE of the resulting DIGITAL FILE will be LESS than the ORIGINAL digital  recording file size.


White noise when digitized will contain an equal number of 1's and 0's with no gaps (long strings of 0's) due to quite periods PLUS the FULL frequency range of the channel and a greater amplitude range THAT will produce a larger range of symbols (individual 16 bit words if the digital channels are 16 bit as an example).

The high level audio noise stored as DATA is MUCH LESS COMPRESSABLE and produces a larger file.

The QUANTITY of 'Shannon Information' in this case only refers to the COMPRESSED DATA VOLUME in BOTH CASES regardless of the human readable content.

If you want to extend the analogy to traditional DATA transmission then....

IT DOES NOT MATTER what the medium is, it could be Fiber Optic, microwave link , morse code or smoke signals or DNA. The channel size (bandwidth and modulation rate for a given symbol set, data transmission is described in symbols per second) and thus sets the TIME required for transmission a given volume of DATA.

Channel noise will affect both data streams by the same amount and can be ignored since the recieved DATA files will still bear the same file size relationship to one another after reception.

In this case you are conflating channel noise with high level audio noise stored AS DIGITAL DATA.

Now tell us you don't understand this.

You are either being completely disingenuous are deliberately lying, in any case both are inexcusable for someone who claims to be an EE.

In one word that sums up the difference between Western and Eastern Religion.

There is a cave somewhere in India (Joeseph Campbell talks about it in one of his talks) where there is a painting of 'god'(a symbolic represenation to be taken subjectively). It has a head with a male face pointing to the right and a female face pointing to the left, one wonders if Picassso was inspired by that. Several of his paintings repeat that theme, "The Dream" by him recently in the news has the male and female face kissing on the one female body, his sleeping mistress in this case.

The interesting thing is that Dave believes in macroevolution just as much as any dyed-in-the-wool evolutionary biologist. He just thinks it happens millions of times faster.


AFD has no ability to conceptualize time.

The information thing is a case in point he doesn't even consider that it is a metric of information transmission and interchangeable with channel bandwidth.

For him the wool is so firmly pulled over his eyes that to even remotely consider the implications of rate of change and time would mean instant death for his projected ego ...his god ..in other words.

He has a hard won cultish veneer lacquered over a deep insecurity that provides him with the ability to disregard reality.  The racing continents for example.

So why does he use the 'language of science' without the empirical evidence.

It feeds his need to seem superior to his family and friends and because AiG provides a sciency looking story that allows his ark to float, he can accept his own deluded dreams as if they were reality..

In fact as I have said before all this engagement by us FEEDS his NPD, its the fuel for his insanity.

Dave is risking far more than his ego.

Consider:  All of Dave’s friends, family, his entire social and emotional support network is tied up with his faith.  It’s very common for Christians to live their lives isolated from all meaningful outside contact.

To accept the fact of evolution means Dave no longer has any life.

Is it any wonder he struggles to comprehend?


The age old problem of the clash of horizons.

Jews vs Moslems, and so on, humans divided by nothing other than dogma.

Religion is so intent on looking back and inward that whenever there is a challenge to its dogma it more often makes the choice not to go beyond the horizon set by its dogma. The Amish are a classic example

Science is the archetypal explorer determined to go beyond the horizon, even if there are demons over an imaginary line.

And those demons are VERY REAL to AFD.

All his fears of what lies beyond his safe little world haunt him.

They are however, only in his mind.

NASA calls their mission to Pluto (I think) "New horizons" to perhaps capture the public imagination and get creationists to look outwards to see that their stunted understanding of the creation of the Earth is limited by their dogma.

Its a nice thought, I suppose.

So the way to get your Rrn > Rrs (Rr > Ru in Drew's terminology) is to crank up the transmission rate of the Noise , Rtn, higher than the Speech rate, Rts, which of course can be done simply by using a higher frequency oscillator at the transmitter which is transmitting the signal.


Well not quite....I assume you mean by "using a higher frequency oscillator at the transmitter which is transmitting the signal" that you mean use a wider channel bandwidth?

That is only necessary if you wish to use the same symbol rate and maintain the same transmission time for the larger data file.

The bit rate for a given channel is dependent on 3 things

1.signal power to (channel) noise power ratio (SNR)
2.bandwidth
3.symbol rate (baud rate) which is set by the modulation scheme

You can trade off SNR for increased baud rate by coding more symbols per second (using a faster modulation scheme)

So by using a faster symbol rate in the same bandwidth a larger data file could be transmitted in the same time ...provided the transmitted signal is not attenuated by the physical medium to below the recievers Minimum Discernable Signal power (+ noise margin for the channel) for that particular modulation scheme.

I'm sure you haven't forgotten that have you AFD?

As far as what YOU THINK of the ToE ...well tough titties.

DISCUSSION

The results, which show the successful simulation of binding site evolution, can be used to address both scientific and pedagogical issues. Rsequence approaches and remains around Rfrequency(Fig. 2b), supporting the hypothesis that the information content at binding sites will evolve to be close to the information needed to locate those binding sites in the genome, as observed in natural systems [4,6]. That is, one can measure information in genetic systems, the amount observed can be predicted, and the amount measured evolves to the amount predicted. This is useful because when this prediction is not met [4,28,29,6] the anomaly implies the existence of new biological phenomena. Simulations to model such anomalies have not been attempted yet.

Variations of the program could be used to investigate how population size, genome length, number of sites, size of recognition regions, mutation rate, selective pressure, overlapping sites and other factors affect the evolution. Another use of the program may include understanding the sources and effects of skewed genomic composition [4,7,30,31]. However, this could be caused by mutation rates, and/or it could be the result of some kind(s) of evolutionary pressure that we don't understand, so how one implements the skew may well affect or bias the results.

The ev model quantitatively addresses the question of how life gains information, a valid issue recently raised by creationists [32] (Truman, R. (1999), http://www.trueorigin.org/dawkinfo.htm) but only qualitatively addressed by biologists [33]. The mathematical form of uncertainty and entropy ( , ) implies that neither can be negative (), but a decrease in uncertainty or entropy can correspond to information gain, as measured here by Rsequenceand Rfrequency. The ev model shows explicitly how this information gain comes about from mutation and selection, without any other external influence, thereby completely answering the creationists.


The ev model can also be used to succinctly address two other creationist arguments. First, the recognizer gene and its binding sites co-evolve, so they become dependent on each other and destructive mutations in either immediately lead to elimination of the organism. This situation fits Behe's [34] definition of `irreducible complexity' exactly (``a single system composed of several well-matched, interacting parts that contribute to the basic function, wherein the removal of any one of the parts causes the system to effectively cease functioning'', page 39), yet the molecular evolution of this `Roman arch' is straightforward and rapid, in direct contradiction to his thesis. Second, the probability of finding 16 sites averaging 4 bits each in random sequences is yet the sites evolved from random sequences in only 103 generations, at an average rate of 1 bit per 11 generations. Because the mutation rate of HIV is only 10 times slower, it could evolve a 4 bit site in 100 generations, about 9 months [35], but it could be much faster because the enormous titer (1010 new virions/day/person [17]) provides a larger pool for successful changes. Likewise, at this rate, roughly an entire human genome of  bits (assuming an average of 1 bit/base, which is clearly an overestimate) could evolve in a billion years, even without the advantages of large environmentally diverse worldwide populations, sexual recombination and interspecies genetic transfer. However, since this rate is unlikely to be maintained for eukaryotes, these factors are undoubtedly important in accounting for human evolution. So, contrary to probabilistic arguments by Spetner [36,32], the ev program also clearly demonstrates that biological information, measured in the strict Shannon sense, can rapidly appear in genetic control systems subjected to replication, mutation and selection [33].

Quote mining is the practice of compiling quotes from large volumes of literature or spoken word.

AFD keep digging.

Genetic information is a metric, a material measure and has the same properties as digital data(Shannon information).

The formulae a phone company uses to calculate transmission requirements for digital data (Shannon information) transmission are the same as the ones Dr. Schneider used to calculate errors in transmission of the genome (as digital data) during replication .

That use of the word information was clear to everyone here.


You as an EE who I presume has come across Shannon's Theory of Information should understand this.

You could be excused if you had never heard of Shannon's Theory of Information , IS THAT THE CASE?

You used Dr. Schneider's formulae for transmission of genetic information (i.e. the exact same context as phone company data information, cultural meaning free) to support your claims, ARE YOU NOW SAYING that you made an error in conflating the colloquial definition of information vs the material or scientific definition for information?

If Drew said "What has more meaning, white noise or speech?" then you would have a case.

This whole saga illustrates the  fundamental? problem AFD has with untangling a literal reading of Genesis.

For him Genesis IS FACT, his mind is utterly agape and completely unable to comprehend a figurative interpretation of what is Mythology.

Mythology is the world described by the language of dream, the subconscious desires and fears of the primordial mind of man expressed though story.

For AFD to even remotely consider the possibility that Genesis is not true would be to remove life's(g$ds) meaning and turn all facts into useless purely relativistic non entities...literally to 'lose ones mind'.


Astute observers will note that from the outside that appears to have already happened...strangely the Bible warns of that happening ..well there is so much in there some of it is bound to right. From somewhere in Exodus "Those who god wants to drive mad, he first causes them to loose ones mind/senses"

Google 'deprogramming cults'


Quote
Deprogramming gained notoriety back in the seventies through such figures as Ted Patrick, a short and stocky black man who set out to probe the underground world of religious cults in order to free young people who were caught up in the clutches of deceptive organizations. Formerly appointed as head of community relations for San Diego and Imperial counties in California by Governor Ronald Reagan, Patrick became concerned when his son Michael had a brush with a band of teenagers involved in an evangelistic group called the Children of God. Curious, Patrick sought them out, seeking to infiltrate their group just to see what they were all about. He discovered an intense indoctrination program designed to wear down the natural defenses of young people (and middle-aged ones like himself!;) through constant bombardment with propaganda, lack of sleep, and sensual stimulation coupled with reading Bible verses. Unexpectedly, Patrick himself began to feel he was losing grip on reality, as if he was drawn into a hypnotist's spell.

After escaping the group, Patrick began an investigation into religious cults that led him into a new kind of rescue work known as deprogramming. Known by cults as "black lightning" for his no-nonsense approach, he was seen as a savior by parents and their deprogrammed children, but as the devil incarnate by the Moonies, Children of God, Hare Krishnas, etc.

Ah yes..... begging the question, the great unknown ....to which some sort of  anthropomorphic g$d can be ascribed as having the 'intelligence' to know. (something I have always found to be highly amusing if you must know, it's just a seed planted in young minds, which gets mindlessly repeated)

Why is  your statement 'there is much out there we do not know nor understand and to presume too much places us on the thin ice of assumption' a self referential form of question begging i.e. circular reasoning?

Well..... instead of giving a direct answer, consider what knowledge is.

It is the product of human reason and ultimately will, in the future answer questions you could never dream of  and currently provides light on subjects our dead ancestors would have been incapable of imagining.

You appear to be making the assumption that because we don't know 'some unknown unknown' we can rightly conclude that human language  correctly conveys concepts which arrogantly firmly assert  the existence  of deities as though they are fact.

Well that particular  all powerful deity has already revealed the great unknown is unknowable (snicker) to his believers through the Mythologies in the Bible.

When you encounter your 'other beings with comparable levels of communication' don't be too surprised if they seem a little dull

I hope that does not need further explanation.

Let me know when anything other than human knowledge is considered 'human knowledge', I always thought it was the opposite to (human) ignorance.

Couldn't adaptations for swimming have come about from occasional swimming, without needing the near continuous swimming implied by the aquatic ape theory?

Henry


Hehe.... would a creo answer for the AAT be "Then why do we still have boats?"

The following comments are completely without any intended sarcasm so bare with me and dip a toe.

Do we actually have any adaptations for swimming?
Offspring that can't fend for themselves for say the first 12 years ,may not be giving the beginnings of culture, tool making (millions of years old) and language, enough credit
Most mammals seem to be able to swim if the need arises. Maybe being able to swim is just a happy accident, a consequence of having our noses in the right place...maybe.
Besides...never underestimate the power of the naked form in water for both males and females.
Even in mythology, the girl by the well is a repeating meme, as is water itself which symbolically represents the feminine, so I think water played an important role in  why we are the way we are without resorting to half evolving into dolphins a comparison of time lines may give the  best answers.

We do have one unique ability that other animals don't and that is our ability to control water and the diverse environments  we can range to. The Australian aboriginal was able to move across vast desert hunting grounds all by cultural control of water passed down through story telling (dream time myth) that laid out the landscape as a 'story map'. Water was available in  springs that had to be dug up or trapped in rock wells and accessed with a string and bark bucket made from materials close to hand.
Anyway just a thought.

k.e. clarify, are you big endian or lil' endian?


I have to confess no deviancy on the egg opening front
although I did experiment once, I can't remember why, it might have been while I was going out with a girl who was a 'spiritualist' in the Madame Blavatsky mold. The daughter of a Irish shipyard worker from Glasgow who enjoyed brief fame in post war Paris as a jazz trumpeter of some note , according to him at least. She held regular seances with a medium to contact her long dead mother cruelly taken by thrombosis induced by a long plane flight. The seances were always successful provided  coin of realm was given in exchange. Anyway she went off to hug trees, it was never going to work out. She was definitely 'little endian', delicious for a while but any sharing of eggs in future was doomed to failure due to our polar oppositeness and my 'Houdini' attitude to her 'Great Bear Indian' or some such, on the 'other side'. Ever since I have been careful to observe any possible partners for endian compatibility and will quiz them on their contact with ghosts, djins and other apparitions. Of course I make allowances for the fact that women are completely unfathomable anyway so which end they open their eggs, I take with a grain of salt.

You are showing a consistent failure here AFD, your poor comprehension and lack of even the most basic raw ability in every subject you have addressed so far is not the mark of what most people would call 'intelligent'

Are you a suppressed clown Davey?
Are you gunning to be more ironic than say Jerry Seinfeld?

No. YOU and Eric were soundly refuted. Dr. Schneider did not understand the context of the debate and I made it quite clear that I agreed with his response.  The only thing I didn't agree with was YOUR statement that "white noise has more information content that a speech" when stated in the context of a discussion about biological information which I clearly defined


By who?

You? In your infantile dreams g$d boy.

Is that a crystal meth and lying c*cks*cker moment for you AFD?

ARE YOU  STILL TRYING TO EQUATE YOUR CRAZY CREATIONIST "biological information " with Dr. Schneider's measurements of mutation rates of the genome when it is treated as information (the real one not the Falwell, Haggard, Bush version)?


YOU WILL NOTE "white noise has more information content that a speech" refered to the quantative size of a digital recording AS DATA INFORMATION not the coloquial NON SCIENTIFIC use of the word as 'meaning something to a human'.

And context? What friggin context is that?

The context of baldfaced lying in public?

I suspect much of technology today still seems supernatural to evolutionary biologists. After all, you can beat them over the head with explanations of digital program controlled factory automation and how cellular machinery operate on the exact same principles and how these things can’t possibly poof themselves into existence without intelligence involved, and they still just don’t get it. They have no concept whatsoever how their cars and computers are made, they just barely know how to operate them.

Arthur C. Clarke famously said “Any sufficiently advanced technology will appear as magic.”

“Abra cadabra! Your new Prius is ready for you sir. This week we’re giving away free laptop computers with all new cars. Let me get yours for you. Alakazam! Here is it sir. Enjoy it with our compliments. If anything goes wrong in the first year please return it and we’ll hocus pocus a replacement for you!”
That would be in contrast to bacterial flagella, which are most definitely not poofed into existence or touched in any way by the hocus-pocus...


DT has definetly lost it..... but he does display the inner machinations of the IDist's mind.

Uh ... guys ... we're not arguing WHETHER there was a Global Flood ... we already did that weeks ago.


Well actually AFD forget weeks ago ...which you were completely unable to prove .........try a few centuries. Intelligent people have known for centuries that the old Biblical Mythology perishes under the hot glare of reason

Galileo and Copernicus shot most of it down long before Sir Walter Raleigh arrived in America when he saw all the new animals unknown in Europe he knew it was absolutely impossible for Noah to have collected examples of every species.

Here is a simple test AFD.

Go and see what REAL science i.e.Geology has to say about the White Cliffs of Dover.

1.What remains of living creatures it is composed of
2.How long it took for the deposits to form
3.What creatures burrowed in it over the millions of years it formed.
4.What living creatures the silicate/flint inclusions came from.

Now what quantity of planktonic green algae would it take to form 300-400 meters of chalk.

Start here

Modern Technology relies on science that shows there is no evidence for any deities, not the Bible

It's "hundreds of billions if not trillions of dead things."


Easily the scale must be trillions of orders of magnitude larger.

Consider how many trillions of microscopic algea deposited over a 10's of million years contribute to some thing like the 400 meter chalk cliffs at Dover in England.

The carboniferous period 135 million years ago responsible for the worlds finite supply of Oil would probably exceed those figures on their own.

Not to mention the far larger known supplies of coal.

Let me get this straight ....you are claiming the imagined history of the Jewish people is like a newspaper report?

The whole tale is MYTH AFD.

Talking snakes, world wide flood, the sun stopping in the sky, incest, necromancy, talking sky demons, self immolating bushes, parting waters, pillars of salt,  900 year old men, instantly created adults from dust and bone, helio centricity, flat earthism, cults, slavery and feudalism; warlords and wardead; miracles and magic; ancestor worship and animal sacrifice;  propaganda, naked power and pride; envy and adultory; idols and passion; demons and djins; birth, rebirth and death;  rising dead and falling prophets; heroes, seers, sooth sayers and devils and women by the well; Failure and fornication; deceit and hubris; decrepitude and joy; Politics and polemic; Journeys and discovery; wrestling demons while sleeping, killing foes while waking.....

...yes AFD a fantasy, a fantastic dream. Expressed in the language of dream; not real but figurative; not objective but subjective. Poetry and prose as opposed to factual reportage, where time and space are suspended and every demon and boon is hyper real, where mans deepest fears and desires are brought to the waking surface of conciousness as distilled life in a rich elixir of innuendo and metaphor. Imagined underworlds explored then reported as though they were real, 'true detective stories' 'swords and sandles' and 'soap opera' writen by master story tellers.

Myth.

Tall tales but 'true'.

Some assisted no doubt by psycho active substances, which I'm pretty sure AFD has never experienced...more the pity.

Just like all the other sub conscious projections of ancient man.

Taking any of that literally will cause insanity. i.e. to lose ones senses, to lose ones mind.

Ah yes the Myth of Prometheus...I'm sure even his raptureness knows that one.

A story meant to be taken literally, as all the old myths were, to convey a concept; a moral; a warning to those who become so full of themselves with overconfidence in their own capabilities, or the rapture of knowing their gods, to be careful or one will meet a sudden coming down to earth (reality will catch up with those that equate their mortal splendor with those of the gods).

Science impacts Myth in a way that makes them quaint anachronisms, however as we see with AFD some things never change. Man the myth maker still tries to have myth maketh the man.

The purpose of Myth is to give identity to the tribe members and its place in the natural word.

A social reality is constructed which need not and in most cases will not, match the natural material world, however it must SEEM to the tribe to be true.

The keepers of the myth through the use of ceremony and obscurantism constantly remind the members that their very existence depends on the myth.

The easiest way to do that is to create 'an other' the outsiders, an enemy whose purpose is to destroy the myth and by extension the tribe's reality and the tribe itself, the myth thus becomes self perpetuating and its magic reality more real than reality itself. A powerful illusion. To be a member one must leave ones mind at the door.

A repeating theme is to prepare the child for adulthood by a process of radical transformation, the circumcision is the perfect example. In exchange for becoming an adult a blood sacrifice to the ancestors where the child is effectively forced to leave childhood behind and prepare to carry out the purpose of the tribe, protect and procreate.

Its the oldest story in the world , a timeless tale promoted by the world's oldest profession ..identity politics aka religion.

So AFD fly higher, your wax is yet to melt.

Yeah it seems to me the only time AFD has actually read anything vaguely scientific is maybe a National Geographic in a dentist's surgery and then only because he couldn't bring himself to look at the 'sealed section' of Cosmo.

He probably skipped anything that didn't look 'true', at least to his twisted version of truth, such as millions of years.

He regards 'science' as being on par with pseudo science, since to him, it is all to do with marketing,
....that is to say propaganda.

He seems to think that comparing the 2 products(of Human creativity) is like buying a car.

He checks the brochures, but the dealer is more important, if the dealer said 'Buy a 2 cylinder Trabant and you will go to heaven' he would do it.

He seems to think a reputation for being a god botherer seals the deal.

And while I'm at it....... another correction.

Earlier I blamed Prometheus for Icarus' travails.
From Wikipedia
   
Quote
In Greek mythology, 'Prometheus (Ancient Greek, "forethought") is the Titan chiefly honored for stealing fire from the gods in the stalk of a fennel plant and giving it to mortals for their use

Since AFD  didn't correct me on such an obvious mistake I can conclude he doesn't read anything other than his cult approved brain wash.

So here it is AFD reprinted in your honor ....note the highlight.
Quote
Prometheus was a son of Iapetus by Clymene (one of the Oceanids). He was a brother of Atlas, Menoetius, and Epimetheus, but he surpassed all in cunning and deceit. He held no awe for the gods, and he ridiculed Zeus, though he fought alongside the gods against the other Titans. Prometheus, in some myths, is credited with the creation of man; in others, this role is assigned to Zeus.[citation needed] When he and his brother Epimetheus set out to make creatures to populate the earth under the orders of Cronos, Prometheus carefully crafted a creature after the shape of the gods: a man. According to the myths, a horrendous headache overcame Zeus and no healer of the realm was able to help the Lord of the Gods. Prometheus came to him and declared that he knew how to heal Zeus, taking a rock from the ground Prometheus proceeded to hit Zeus in the head with it. From out of Zeus' head popped the Goddess Athena, with her emergence Zeus' headache disappeared. Some myths attribute Hephestus to the splitting of the head rather than Prometheus.

Prometheus and Epimetheus journeyed to Earth from Olympus, they ventured to the Greek province of Boitia and made clay figures. Athena took the figures and breathed life into them, the figures that Prometheus had created became Man and honored him. The figures that his brother Epimetheus had created became the beasts, which turned and attacked him.

Zeus was angered by the brothers' actions, he forbade the pair from teaching Man the ways of civilization, Athena chose to cross Zeus and taught Prometheus so that he might teach Man.

For their actions, Zeus demanded a sacrifice from Man to the Gods to show that they were obedient and worshipful. The gods and mortal man had arranged a meeting at Mecone where the matter of division of sacrifice was to be settled. Prometheus slew a large ox, and divided it into two piles. In one pile he put all the meat and most of the fat, skillfully covering it with the ox's grotesque stomach, while in the other pile, he dressed up the bones artfully with shining fat. Prometheus then invited Zeus to choose. Zeus, seeing through the trick, realised that in purposefully getting tricked he would have an excuse to vent his anger on mortal man, and thus chose the pile of bones (many sources say that Zeus did not, in fact, see through this trick). This also gives a mythological explanation of the practice of sacrificing only the bones to the gods, while man gets to keep the meat and fat.

Zeus in his wrath denied men the secret of fire. Prometheus felt sorry for his creations, and watched as they shivered in the cold and winter's nights. He decided to give his most loved creation a great gift that was a "good servant and bad master". He took fire from the hearth of the gods by stealth and brought it to men in a hollow wand of fennel, or ferule that served him instead of a staff. Thus mankind was warm. To punish Prometheus for this hubris (and all of mankind in the process), Zeus devised "such evil for them that they shall desire death rather than life, and Prometheus shall see their misery and be powerless to succor them. That shall be his keenest pang among the torments I will heap upon him." Zeus could not just take fire back, because a god or goddess could not take away what the other had given.

Zeus was enraged because the giving of fire began an era of enlightenment for Man, and had Prometheus carried to Mount Caucasus, where an eagle by the name of Ethon (offspring of the monsters Typhon and Echidna) would pick at his liver; it would grow back each day and the eagle would eat it again. In some stories, Zeus has Prometheus tortured on the mountain because he knows the name of the person who, according to prophecy, will overthrow the king of the gods. This punishment was to last 30,000 years. About 12 generations later, Heracles (known as Hercules in Roman mythology), passing by on his way to find the apples of the Hesperides as part of the Twelve Labours, freed Prometheus, in a bargain he had agreed with Zeus in exchange for Chiron's immortality, by shooting the eagle with an arrow. Zeus did not mind this time that Prometheus had again evaded his punishment, as the act brought more glory to Heracles, who was Zeus's son. Prometheus was invited to return to Olympus, though he still had to carry with him the rock to which he was chained.


To punish man for the offenses of Prometheus, Zeus told Hephaestus (Vulcan) to "mingle together all things loveliest, sweetest, and best, but look that you also mingle therewith the opposites of each." So Hephaestus took gold and dross, wax and flint, pure snow and mud of the highways, honey and gall; he took the bloom of the rose and the toad's venom, the voice of laughing water and the peacocks squall; he took the seas beauty and its treachery, the dog's fidelity and the wind's inconstancy, and the mother bird's heart of love and the cruelty of the tiger. All these, and other contraries past number, he blended cunningly into one substance and this he molded into the shape that Zeus had described to him. She was as beautiful as a goddess and Zeus named her Pandora which meant "all gifted".

Zeus breathed upon her image, and it lived. Zeus sent her to wed Prometheus' brother, Epimetheus, and although Prometheus had warned his brother never to accept gifts from the Olympians, Epimetheus ("hind-thought", as opposed to "fore-thought") was love-stricken, and he and Pandora wed. The Gods adorned the couple with many wedding gifts, and Zeus presented them with a beautifully wrought box. When Pandora opened the box, all suffering and despair was unleashed upon mankind. Zeus had had his revenge.

As the introducer of fire and inventor of crafts, Prometheus was seen as the patron of human civilization. Uncertain sources claim he was worshipped in ancient Rome as well along with other gods.

He was the father of Deucalion with Pronoia who is often confused as Clymene because the both of them are often called by the same other name, Asia.


[edit] Comparative perspectives
In mythography, Prometheus may be classed among the trickster gods, such as Loki in Norse mythology. Like Prometheus, Loki is a giant rather than a god, is associated with fire, and is punished by being chained to a rock, and tormented by an animal. Yet Loki is malevolent, while Prometheus is a benefactor to humanity. In addition, Prometheus is very intelligent and acts with forethought, unlike the rash Loki. The similarities between the two characters may be coincidental. The motif is believed, by some, to have been borrowed from the Nart sagas of the Caucasian peoples, but the analogies with Loki seem to reveal an older Indo-European source.

The Prometheus myth bears striking similarities to the Adamic myth of the fall of man. The Promethean fire and the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge can be considered semiotic synonyms; there are clear links between Pandora and Eve. In fact the euphemistic name for Satan's former angelic form, Lucifer — actually, a Latin name for the planet Venus — literally means "light bearer," which seems to hint at the image of Prometheus carrying the divine fire down to man. Of course, Satan was not called Lucifer until St. Jerome translated the Hebrew phrase heilel ben-schahar in the Latin Vulgate, many centuries after the account of the Fall of Man was written, making a Prometheus-Lucifer/Satan connection rather unlikely.

Such a reading seems to identify Yahweh as Zeus and the serpent/Satan as the Prometheus figure. This reading is problematic for Judeo-Christian readers, since it seems to suggest that Yahweh is jealous, vengeful and keen to restrict humankind, while presenting Satan as a Prometheus-like champion of humanity. Satanism uses Prometheus as a symbolic aspect of Satan. (see the article Satanism) However, there is no actual evidence of actual borrowing between these two cultures. Old Testament scholarship and that of the contemporary cultures (Hittitology, Assyriology, and Egyptology) show that the beginning of Genesis is modeled more in-line with Ancient Near Eastern myth, so if there is any borrowing, it would be more likely that the Greeks borrowed from an Ancient Near Eastern culture.

How odd AFD preaches.

And Hoists himself on ANOTHER petard.

His projection is in vivid wide screen Technicolor.


Quote

Yes, this describes you (not just you--you collectively--you and your cohorts here at ATBC) perfectly.  You strain at a gnat and swallow a camel !!  You mislead the public and our schoolchildren.  You lie to them and tell them that Genesis is a fairy tale.  Then you act all smug and righteous.


TA Daaa!

What an act AFD ...take a bow.
The crying clown on the empty stage, not a comedy a tragedy.

And like ALL his useless preaching on his non existent Flood we have an other pile of doggy doos.

He quotes a moral from his book that suggests those whose internal beliefs do not match their external beliefs are immoral. Or one who says one thing but actually thinks another is ungodly.

What Jesus is ACTUALLY saying is those who concern themselves with consumerism and material things in preference to honesty, truth and justice by keeping up appearances for the sake of appearances only, are immoral.

A typical rant, what else would you expect?

It looks like AFD is making a virtue out of lying and hypocrisy.

To keep up appearances of believing in THE UNBELIEVABLE or THE BIG LIE, first one must make the outside story match the internal story.

***In AFD's mind this means making reality a lie.

AFD has enough reasoning ability to know that if the bible is not true, then god cannot be a true idea.

AFD's internal story:- "the bible, must be true real history and therefore there is a god"; the external world aka reality can then only be "the exact result of biblical history OTHERWISE NOTHING IS REAL."

AFD produce your evidence for a MASSIVE SPIKE of CO2 in the pre 5000 year atmosphere.

IF TRUE, you will find that CO2 spike in those Vostok ice cores going back 400,000 years.

BTW in Shakespeare's day a petard was a form of crane for lifting things. It could also be translated into modern English as cock. (and handsaw was his spelling of harnser, a heron.)


I only recently discovered this meaning for Petard up until then I always thought it was a pike  and 'Hoist on one's own petard was to have ones severed head placed on a pike for public display'  as one of my High School teachers claimed.

Shakespearean punnery and word play is extremely clever and if a petard or a similar sounding word did mean a crane then even better. Thats why I liked my sig. the last line has 2 meanings.

Lifted by ones own crane has the image of someone winding the cranes windlass while roped to the the cranes lifting hook.

However, I am unable to find a refernce to that. Perhaps it might be in the OED? (NOT the one without the crane)

DaveTard "It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them."

Now gives us a prelude to his magnum opus.

While he and "micro-testes" Dembski take their moveable feast of Tard to the very walls of Judea with a plausible 'Virgin Birth' scenario for biology, we are going to be treated to the disembowelment of one of the central tennants of Christianity.

Mary was not the father of god ....or the mother for that matter ......Jesus was a girly ....a bearded lady from a travelling Jewish freak show.

Dembski and El Tardo left a deposit at a zero year CE spermbank....a toilet seat down in the Kazbah..... and a rash of unmarried women now claim to be pregnant with HIM.

UD and it's rusted on backwash hurtle towards a pre-industrial trainwreck.

Nothing miraculous here, move along please.

It appears that practically anyone who was a major celebrity then, could have a virgin birth added to his CV/Myth by his propagandists.

One virgin Birth?

Insurance to cover a virgin birth
In June 2006, it was revealed that a British insurer, britishinsurance.com, had provided a £1 million insurance policy to three Scottish women to provide cover in the event of one of them having a virgin birth. The payout was to cover the costs of bringing up the Christ. The policy was cancelled following pressure from the Catholic Church. [2].

I've calculated vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I know the probability of every possibility
from fallacy to outcome, I am quite delusional

About Mt Rushmore I'm teeming with a lot o' news

In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,

In fact, when I know what is meant by 'RNA' and 'DNA,'
When I can tell at sight a Mountain from a Statue-a,
When such affairs as genes and springing them willy-nilly,
And when I know precisely what is meant by 'biology,'
When I have learnt what progress has been made in modern skulduggery
When I know more of tactics than a novice in thuggery;

There's also the minor issue that DT has no professional engineering experience (or education).  There is no forum on Earth (except UD) where he would be accepted as an expert on design or the practise of engineering.


Does he qualify to be a full (degree qualified and professional standing) member of the IEEE?

Don't forget there are countless anti-gravity machines, rungless ladders, bottomless ashtrays and zero energy machines patented so without discounting his contribution to the advancement of the patent count it is appropriate that the one other forum where his ideas are given merit IS the patent office.

Quote of the day
by William Dembski on November 28th, 2006 · 8 Comments
“You measure a democracy by the freedom it gives its dissidents, not the freedom it gives its assimilated conformists.” — Who said it and how does it apply to the ID-evolution controversy?


Well Dembski missed his chance in Dover, he could have attained ID martyrhood and immortality at the same time, by screaming his polemic in the judges face and being restrained in a chair by chains for the duration of the trial (as Hoffman was)........oh hang on....he ran away.....or the self appointed defenders of religion (No Monkey business Moore & Co) decided he was too religious.

Pity .....it would have been one of the most hilarious cross examinations in history.

So how is your church audit going AFD?

I'll bet they can't get anything past you .....eh?

Did you make sure the auditors were tame?

What do you tell them when they dig up the bodies, so to speak?

Your skillful denial and obfuscation makes the Mafia look like a bunch amateurs.

Have you personally benefited from any of the huge checks you pastor has written for himself?

Or are you doing it for free?

Don't worry AFD I don't expect an honest answer.

It's a pity there isn't someone in your church who won't take you and your cohorts on.

How many years would you get for embezzlement or assisting corruption?

Then AFD you would find like minded thinkers, everyone in jail is innocent by their own account.

I don't understand why we had all of that discussion of the quality of DaveScot's engineering background. If a biologist were to expound on the engineering feats of von Daniken's ancient astronauts, I wouldn't be wondering if that person was really a biologist.

It's quite common for software programers, technicians, trades people, craft workers to call themselves Engineers whereas a Biologist must be degree qualified to be called a Biologist.

Along with all his petite bourgeois bluster and underwhelming achievements, DT remember seems to think biology is akin to stamp collecting and pipetting.

Yes, the social workers came and inspected our home and they did all the background checks and we were approved with flying colors.


Sure AFD....just to be safe, get them to check your posts here.

I can only imagine what whoppers you spun when talking to them.

Like I said you make lying a virtue and would put to shame the worlds very best.

It went fine thanks.


It's a pity fleecing suckers isn't illegal only the backwash is left ......the smart ones hit the road.

I know all about audits AFD, you call in someone to whitewash the missing millions and because you are paying them they provide the report you want, so they get paid.

You and your lawyers can take a running ****.
