Zachriel demonstrates inference to the best explanation at its most effective. Here we infer that temmenicki2 posted on UD, but was made to disappear. "Silent but deadly" refers to more than one UD phenomenon:
Speaking of survival of the fittest, I wonder how “fit” temmenicki2’s comment will be judged? ((I suspect that that least natural of “selecters”, a certain davescot, will soon swoop in and notify us that both temmenicki2, and his memetic offspring are no longer with us.))
temmenicki2, it is indeed possible that Denyse does not understand evolution, but I’d like to suggest that you simply don’t understand Denyse.
You gave yourself away “whatever that means.”
I’d watch your step, evolution is debated on this site daily, when Ms. O’Leary makes her comments she does so with a thorough understanding of the intricacies of evolution to the molecular level!
My I show you her book?
so temminicki….how well do you understand ID?
you said: “survival of the fittest simply means that those critters that make more babies have a better chance of getting their genes into the next generation.”
johnson rightly pointed out in darwin on trial that this is merely a tautology. whoever survives ….survives. whoever survives also is able to bring their genes to the next generation. wow….that is brilliant! thanks for the deep insights into evolution. it is truly a complex theory eh?
