|That's interesting, because I have never felt lonely being the only evo on a hostile site.|
Not lonely, but it can be damned hard to offer sensible, thought-out and researched answers to a large, baying crowd detecting fresh meat who consider the entire gamut fair game and themselves as expert as one would need to be. Trying to be honest and accurate - and being called a cowardly liar for your trouble! - takes a lot more effort than just saying stuff.
it's important to remember that it's all about the LULZ
pretending like there is some sort of substance to critique therefore good faith internetting discussion is possible with ID creationists is a huge error IMO
that's a very different thing from fisking the tard.
look at wes on dembski: fisks the tard, brutally and without remorse, in print, with citations and leaves it up for dembski to run away from.
that's a totally different from trying to get KF to admit he is a lying dooshbag on UD where he can be lord of the flies gilligan bob marley gk chesterton version.
So, although I may have not been as clear on this in this thread as I was in my head, i think fisking the tard is great. i guess what i am getting at is that there are a lot of smart people wasting a great deal of time and effort to fruitlessly yet systematically expose the Wizard in the arguments made by some very obtuse, dishonest and stubborn stupid fucking creationists.
And I have done it too. And I hopefully will in the future. But I am about convinced that "wasting a great deal of time and effort" is a pretty good descriptor, if your objective is to detard more tards.
oh shit this is now framing
