What a surprise, the stupid have to defame and lie where they can't hope to know anything (archiving again):
|--In reply to Glen’s claim: “The “father of Intelligent Design” and HIV denier to whom I was referring is Phillip Johnson. Is it at all surprising that Johnson has advocated more than one pseudoscience, not just ID?”|
It is hard for me to understand how educated persons could be so misinformed and resort to character assassination such as this. Se the above post.--
It's bizarre that people like Jbagail condemn themselves in just about every post, by dishonestly projecting their own faults onto others. Johnson's past opposition is well-known by those informed enough to comment on these matters, which obviously Jbagail is not. Here's one example, for the woefully ignorant defamatory pro-ID anti-thinkers:
--Given the 10 years of total lack of progress on AIDS, the billions of dollars that have been wasted, the human heart-ache that this issue has caused so many Americans, it seems only sensible that we should re-examine the question of what really causes AIDS. At issue here are not only the lives of those diagnosed with AIDS who are being treated improperly, but also of those who are tormented by the fear of AIDS-for themselves and their children. We can't allow the scientific bureaucrats at the CDC and NIH to prevent this reappraisal from happening. *--
This was written by: "By Kary B. Mullis, Phillip E. Johnson & Charles A. Thomas Jr." The whole piece may be found here:
I should mention that not only do IDists threaten lives by condemning the primary organizing principle in biology, evolution by investigable means, but the HIV denial in which Johnson engaged even more directly threatened the lives of people, especially in Africa.
Fortunately, science has "suppressed" such nonsense here thus far, or in other words, it has discharged its duty to abandon useless ideas whenever and wherever they have proven to be useless. Jbagail chooses to be dishonest about this, as well as most other related matters.
Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of coincidence---ID philosophy
