Joe Gallien (Joe G) is a bullshit artist who has floating this "I was wounded fighting in Iraq" lie for years.

When pressed on the details, turns out he was never in the military.  He spent a month or so there as a contractor, and somehow hurt his back in a totally benign manner, lifting something the wrong way.

It steams me no end to see this chickenshit dishonor the real men and women who fought for our country and who were wounded or killed there.  :angry:

The body part changes depending on what day he is telling the story.  :p

The details were drug out of him a little bit at a time, across several boards (IIDB, CARM), several years ago  I'd have to see what I can locate.

Just for grins, why don't you just ask him to provide a detailed account of his service and his injury.  Then ask him if he has any verification.  See what he comes up with.

On the Sternberg Not A Baptist thread

I don’t understand why Dr Sternberg bothers having this conversation in the first place, unless his correspondent is extremely good looking. He could have simply stated that from an ID perspective, no one doubts the common descent of humans and simians, and the details are being worked out. Is he actually trying to argue that the ITSs observed in different species are designed artifacts? That would seem to be a testable prediction.

Funny - he was mentioning his hurt back well before he supposeldy went to Iraq.  He mentioned it wayyyyy back on the old OCW forum probably 7 or 8 years ago - claimed that his prayers helped it heal.

Clive,

It seems that you’ve been infected by the “mockery constitutes refutation” meme, judging by your opening post here and by your comments on determinism (link, link) in the “Belief in God” thread.

Do you have any actual criticisms of the concepts of determinism and memes?

beelzebub,

Were you asking me to list them here? Me memes and your memes weren’t apparently understanding each other. I have this replicating unit of cultural information stuck in my head, otherwise known as a “song”, and it distracts my other memes, who are otherwise engaged in replicating themselves. These memes really want to stay alive, which is why they wrote Stayin’ Alive within the mind of the Bee Gees. That’s their Theme song.

They’re otherwise known as Thetons among the Scientologists, and as Macrobes in C. S. Lewis’s science fiction book “That Hideous Strength”. They run the show beelzebub, not me—-you’ll have to put your question in terms of cultural replicating units in order for it to make any difference to these memes, they’re not interested in anything other than that—-maybe put it in a poem or rhyme scheme, and it will become meaningful to them, and they’ll use it to mate with and replicate themselves. My memes and your memes will mate, and we’ll see what comes of the progeny.

Clive,

Your response reveals how badly you misunderstand the concept of the meme.

Memes are not conscious agents, like Hubbard’s Thetans and Lewis’s Macrobes. They aren’t interested in things, they don’t understand anything, they’re not distractible, and they don’t “want” anything, except in the same purely metaphorical sense in which genes “want” to be replicated.

I recommend Susan Blackmore’s The Meme Machine to help clear up your confusion.

Now can I help you with the concept of determinism?

rich i find that substantially less funny without all the buy my book memeage and buzzword memery adorning it like tassels on a fancy banana hammock (meme)  in my humble ignorance i mistook the wrapping for the present.  

i mean now it's like "Oh, look, a UD moderator/socktard/regular/owner has done something stupid and been corrected in more or less polite informative fashion".  and that happens every damn day

It was all like "specks and motes in a frenzy of beams sticking out every which way".  and "wow those people are dumber than we even CAN imagine"  

those paradigm shifts in our study of the TARD are not so common.  at least not daily events.  for me anyway

This brings back memories of a comment (off site) of UD (now ir)regular Lee Bowman. Lee had learned that a podcast re-enactment of the Dover trial was in the offing. Lee reported on it, getting facts badly wrong, but the real gem was in this comment in the follow on:
   
Quote
Don’t believe everything you read Andy, but thanx anyway for taking me literally! And good luck with you podcast. I really think a four act play would be better, tho. Here’s a scenario.

Act (1), Gathering facts, and maybe letting everyone take a taste of primordial soup to really help set the mood. Act (2), Watching the facts evolve, for the amusement of the audience, and of course the genetic mutant on the bench. And don’t forget the stack of peer review books and papers, since watching the witness have to peek around it will always get a laugh. Act (3) For the finale, have the Marine Band waiting in the wings to play patriotic music as Eric Rothschild tells his epic saga of the plight for deliverance from theocratic oppression (but for g** sake, don’t have them play ‘Battle Hymn of the Republic!) Stay silent for the defense, however. Then have the audience stand up and salute as the band plays Stars and Stripes Forever as Judge gives the final accolades, and exits the room.

After a brief intermission for refreshments and to stretch a bit, Act (4) could start off with a narrative read by an announcer offstage, while gradualistic phyletic images are projected onto the curtain. Some sound effects would be cool! When the hominid lineage arrives, have the curtain open half way, and as a spotlight falls on the judge, have him read his ’scathing decision’, and have him do it with passion, but with pauses to half smile and make audience eye contact (ala GW style). After the show, sign autographs in the lobby, while serving little Trilobite cookies and little demitasse cups of primordial soup.

Just kidding. The Podcast will be fine.
Lee is so pleased with this bit of wit he ends with a flourish:    
Quote

That’s just the thing, there is no consensus on what these memes are, it depends on who you ask, because it is science fiction.

Clive,

Nobody who understands memes thinks they are conscious entities. Dawkins didn’t think so when he invented the term, and he doesn’t now. Blackmore doesn’t. Dennett doesn’t. The authors of the Wikipedia article on memes don’t.

Until today, in fact, I hadn’t heard of anyone who thought that memes were conscious.

The problem is not a lack of consensus, Clive; it’s the tendency of certain people to mock things they don’t even comprehend.

As you can see, this sometimes backfires.


Sweet.

This may come as a shock to you, but the convention by which information is passed from nucleotide to effect is not contingent upon physical law.

This fact is supported by direct experimentation.

Physical law has nothing to do with the existence of the code, nor the information transferred from it.

All magic science so far...
I would love to know what experiments it is referring to...

There was a discussion here a while back about dinosaurian soft tissues. Schweitzer et al. have published supporting evidence.

Biomolecular Characterization and Protein Sequences of the Campanian Hadrosaur B. canadensis: Molecular preservation in non-avian dinosaurs is controversial. We present multiple lines of evidence that endogenous proteinaceous material is preserved in bone fragments and soft tissues from an 80-million-year-old Campanian hadrosaur, Brachylophosaurus canadensis [Museum of the Rockies (MOR) 2598].

UD finally found a perfect sponsor!  Just peeked at it and it was showing an ad for DIANETICS.ORG, complete with animated volcano.  Refreshed three times and it was still there.

This is perfect!  I'm certain that L. Ron Hubbard would have been an IDist.

Why research when we can make it up

ID is not creationism
evolution=religion but ID is not religion

Jerry reveals why he believes that every gene is designed:
Quote
I base nearly all my conclusions on Behe’s Edge of Evolution. To me that is the definitive work so far. I also base a lot of my conclusions on Sherlock Holmes and the story of Silver Blaze and one of the most famous insights in history. Namely, of the dog barking in the night.

Both these works support/prove my conclusions about the design of genes.

Does anyone have the heart to tell Jerry that Sherlock Holmes isn't a historical figure?  Or that Behe doesn't think that every gene is designed?

Jerry, you magnificent bastard, PM Erasmus immediately.
