Good thread worth reading. Glenn Davidson explains abductive vs deductive inference. Barry flounders with a piss weak "thats what ID uses". Further down Nick Matzke explains the problem.
|Getting this confused is one of Barry’s mistakes, amongst numerous other failings (high arrogance, low knowledge, high propensity to blab without doing any research in the primary literature, reliance on quotes from popularizations rather than absorbing the consensus in the primary literature.)|
Bang on, couldn't have said it better.
ETA: Second thoughts, Matzke was probably a little too vague and unnecessarily politically correct. Barry is such recalcitrant recidivist asshat that come what may he couldn't tell the difference between a tautology and a shit sandwich. God help his paying customers if he has any.
