I will deal with the politics first and then with the science in another comment.
|I have no idea when or what that first instance was, TP, except that it occurred before I was banned. Can we agree that TT is not nearly as tolerant as you have repeatedly claimed them to be?|
Actually, I have loudly questioned MikeGene about whether or not Telic Thoughts lives up to its About Us declaration multiple times. I have even pointed out the biased treatment of the Smokey verses Bradford discussions. I felt you two were opposite sides of the same coin.
MikeGene estimates Telic Thoughts has banned a total of 10 people (7 ID critics and 3 ID supporters) in the 2.5 years of its existence. You (with your three aliases) were apparently one of them.
Telic Thoughts is a pro-ID blog. In case it has escaped everyone's notice, I seem to be the only one who seems to care whether or not people from After the Bar Closes choose to participate in discussions at Telic Thoughts.
Jam, it is obvious that you have a biased opinion of Telic Thoughts. Based on your actions here, I would have to agree it would not be in Telic Thoughts best interest to reinstate your privileges.
If you actually wanted to come back, you missed an opportunity. It would have been relatively easy to convince me that you were unfairly treated if you tried. Had you done that, I would have tried to make the case that Telic Thoughts could use more balanced discussions. Besides, I liked "Smokey". I might have had a chance, but now, with the way you chose to approach this, I don't see how it would be remotely possible.
As it is, it looks like the shield bashing games will continue. After the Bar Closes will be smug in their presumption that ID proponents are arrogant and unreasonable. Meanwhile, Telic Thoughts will be smug in their presumption that ID critics are arrogant and unreasonable.
Everyone can continue to be comfortable with their stereotypes reconfirmed.
Oh well, I tried.
