|I must admit, UD has been poor entertainment of late.|
Sadly true, which is why I started commenting at Telic Thoughts again (as 'robin').
In my brief tenure there (I've been banned), I mined a few good tard seams:
ID and Morality:
Watch as good, upstanding Christians defend the morality of Bible verses such as these:
| If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts, you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity.|
(Deuteronomy 25:11-12, NIV)
|If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property.|
(Exodus 21:20-21, NIV)
Joy gloats over a paper in Science:
|Yeah, I know I'm being smug here. I've had a bit of a rough spring out in the real world, so it feels pretty good to 'win' something for a change... So, Culture Warriors. What say you about this evidence of intelligent design in life and evolution? Is this science? Should the researchers be expelled from academia for heresy? Should the journal Science be taken to task and forced to issue a retraction?|
...until Raevmo and I point out what the paper actually says, and Joy stops gloating and decides that the authors are dogmatic Darwinists after all.
Evidence and Truth:
Mike Gene explains why evidence is overrated.
Speak Your Mind:
I accept the invitation and speak my mind regarding Salvador Cordova's behavior in the blogosphere, asking TTers whether they approve of it. None of the ID supporters can bring themselves to express approval -- or disapproval. Except for DaveScot, who says he disapproves of the quotemining but approves of the way Sal "bends over backwards trying not to offend anyone"!
To make Sal feel better, Bradford offers this:
|Salvador, you're not Attila the Hun and I've witnessed much, much worse on the web and in person during my life.|
Long-time tardaholics know that it is good to have a back-up supply in case your primary source runs dry. Telic Thoughts will never match the pure, uncut tard at UD, but it's better than withdrawal.
