A common debating technique is the appeal to popularity. It goes like this:

Most, many, or all persons believe statement p is true. Therefore tatement p is true.

You're of course talking about the Discovery Institute.

Many scientists are now saying they doubt "Darwinism"...


Part of a debate or an "argument" is making "observations" which are meant to convince your opponent or your audience that your argument is superior.

Kind of like the Discovery Institute again and all their "observations" of "patterns" in nature, which of course suggests a pattern maker, or an intelligent designer

Zardoz, you're down with it.  The Disovery Institute won't be fooling you anytime soon.

Uncommon Descent is a moral cesspool, a festering intellectual ghetto that intoxicates and degrades its inhabitants - Stephen Matheson
