Henry Morris and Duane Gish would be very pleased to see how their memes are being expressed in their intellectual descendants over at UD. Every misconception and misrepresentation about science, from thermodynamics to atoms and molecules to the origins of life and onward to evolution, is expressed as clearly as a deadly genetic disease in Morris’s and Gish’s intellectual progeny over there.

Even funnier, those UD characters – like abandoned street urchins – don’t know anything about their own intellectual ancestry.  They don’t know or understand the genetic and memetic markers that identify them; and they actually believe they are solving the “scientific” problems that Morris and Gish set out for them by introducing them into their intellectual memes and genes.  ID is their attempted “solution” to the pseudo-scientific memes that reside in their heads.

Who says ID is not a morph of “scientific” creationism?  The paternity test screams otherwise; right over there at UD.  It’s in their intellectual DNA.

Well, it's not a morph and it's not a descendent.  It's the same fucking corpse they trotted out before it's just wearing a bit more face paint and they trimmed it's bush.

i understand why you want to screw gpuccio to the mat.  in fact, several people here voted him "Most Likely To De-tard" so I can only infer that you voted this way because you are fond of him.  And maybe he is most likely to de-tard.

but so what? no one is a committed creationist because they have reviewed the evidence.  they are pre-committed.  if you manage to convince gpuccio that ID is the bollocks it undoubtedly is, then you haven't convinced him to renounce creationism, which is a state of denial and not a positive position.  and even if he does in some way renounce creationism, it will be a business decision.  a trade-off.  

So, that makes it a twist but otherwise, you're still arguing with a creationist.  olegt keeps bringing that up in a beautifully cynical way.  ID is deader than a mackerel
