In all honesty, if it wasn't for you guys belling the cat in it's litterbox, UD would be the biggest, most useless circle jerk since the fall of the USSR's Politburo.

I suspect we'd see a blackhole of tard, at least until the denzions passed their own Schwarzschild radius.  At that point, they will create their own private server that no one else can see or visit and hopefully, they would never venture off of it.

Joe could sit in his mom's basement and blabber on about the mating habits of asexual organisms, the obviousness that trees made of steel could be taller than trees made of wood, and the ultimate expression of IDiocy, a multi-Megayear study of the fungus growing on the edge of his toilet that slowly becomes intelligent and tells him what a douche he actually is.

Gordon, could write epically long posts where he repeats "Onlookers note" millions of times.  The rate at which modern storage hardware is becoming larger and cheaper means that it could someday reach the point where the amount of storage could contain the nearly infinite ramblings of his monkey brain.  If infinitely many monkeys on infinitely many typewriters in an infinite amount of time can develop the works of Shakespeare, what works would be the result of one monkey on one keyboard in whatever remains of his pathetic life?

O'Leary would find that a pure coffee diet is the ultimate weightloss program.  At some point after her 300 billionth post, she realizes that he has become a thin layer of skin flopped onto an ergonomic office chair with an intrevenous drip of COFFEE!!! and a spray bottle of moisterizer set on a 10 minute timer.  She will, unfortunately, remain the closest thing to an actual human in the UD-hole.*  

Other, specially** invited guests will occasionally join, but much like a roach motel, the self-congratulatory behavior and positive forced-feedback system within the UD-hole will forever trap those within.  They will be unable to communicate with anyone outside of their limted circle of intellectual equals***.

Our only hope to study the UD-hole will be to watch the pieces of intellect that escape from the hole as others are specially invited in.  These pieces of intellect will tell us a great deal about the activities within the hole (thereby proving that Hawkins was correct and some information can escape).  

Snippets of wisdom will begin with complex equations and deep philosophical utterings.  While these would be easily proven incorrect by a particularly bright Australian sheepdog, there is at least a semblence of mental accument.  As time passes, the UD-hole will grow, yet thanks to our knowledge of thermodynamics, the intellilectual ability within the hole will be spread out among a larger and larger volume until finally we get phrases like, "dog food can be a nutritional supplement, I saw it in a movie" and "my toes smell like rancid horse ejacula".

Soon, no actual directly translatable communication will exist and we will be forced to assign meaning to occasional outburst of grunting and making inferences about the author from the mere tonal qualities of seemingly random bits of data.  (For example: "Urkula" might mean, "Joe, quit saying ID is not anti-evolution you idiot.  No one can hear us in here.  We can talk freely now."****)

Those you who wish to prevent this from occurring, my hat is off to you.  For you are tangling with a force more powerful than any yet discovered in the natural world.  Even gravity fades to insignificance over the light-years, but stupidity is remorseless.


*With respect to Dr. Who.

**"Small Bus", not "unique"

***and a subset of small African dung beetles (termites in Joe's case).

**** Although, some actual scientists studying the phenomenon will submit that the same phrase is also uttered when a UD-hole denzion is dealing with a particularly difficult bowel evacuation.



I second. All in favor say AYE?

Aye, aye?

A message for Joseph: I received yours, went to your blog and was unable to comment (no way of posting) so the situation is no different. As far as your claim:

"However seeing that I have already destroyed your main premise I don’t see what there is to discuss."

Uh, no. You did nothing of the sort.
If you can apply the ID paradigm to the hominid fossils, then do so. But, please realize: Anthropologists have to write volumes to explain the sequence of fossils as they see it, and draw on the physical parameters, ages and geographical distributions to do so. Your simplistic one -sentence answers do not take care of the details. So, pick a section of hominid sequence and apply the ID paradigm. Why is that so hard? Your cohorts at UD made it sound like it was no big deal, but I can't get them to mention a single fossil, bone length ratio, joint angle, strata, radiometric method, comparison with modern humans or apes, nada. All I get is religion and philosophy and that all anthropologists are wasting their life, not to mention being left out of the conversation for days at a time by a biased and draconian moderation policy.

So defend your friends' claim, since they won't.

Odd that Joe hasn't noticed after all these years that "Thre, they are explained" and the patternicity shtick cut ID off at the knees.

A message to Joseph: Since you know where to find me at PT, and my posts languish here in moderation (5 on this thread now, and one on the original thread is still in moderation after a full week) why don’t you come there and let’s continue this discussion. You will not be moderated there, and that way each can answer the other promptly. If you are sure of your ideas and have the courage, you’ll come. If you need to have this advantage of my being moderated, you won’t.

Will he come? Is he man enough to discuss this issue without my being muzzled?

That would probably be a "No".  He might come for a while if he is feeling masochistic and wants to hurl insults at everyone, but he won't stick around, and you won't get an ounce of anything approaching science out of him.

Your blog moderates for hours, too. My posts here are still in moderation, with posts from KF on the original thread pretending that he doesn’t know why or claiming that I am lying about the moderation. Ever wonder why PT doesn’t moderate? You can’t hold any kind of interchange when there is a delay on one side.

Well, that didn't take long: Joseph's last post:


Lisa:
This contradicts what they say on UD.

kairofocus agrees with me and has said that. And it is true some IDists disagree. They are not ID.

What paleos say about the fossil record assumes the mechanism of rm and ns.

You cannot assume what needs to be demonstrated. WTF?

If ID shifts the paradigm, then use the evidence to explain.

The current "paradigm" is unscientific, ie it cannot be tested it has to be assumed.

"However some IDists have weighed in on the Cambrian "explosion" saying the "sudden" appearance is evidence for design."

This is well explained by evolution and needs no design explanation.

Yeah, blah, blah, blah.

You have absolutely no evidence that accumulating random mutations can construct useful, functional multi-part systems.


"Phenotypic plasticity and normal variation within a population can account for what evolutionary paleos observe."

This is not true

Just look at the phenotypic plasticity we observe in dogs.

The fact that there is no articulated ID theory, and that ID is not being put to the test in field and laboratory,

OK, fuck you.

ID is based on observations and experiences- ie our knowledge of cause and effect relationships.

ID makes specific claims, claims that can be refuted- refuted by evos supporting their position!

Your position has to be assumed because it cannot be tested:

1- How can we test the premise that the bacterial flagellum evolved in a population that never had one via an accumulation of genetic accidents?

2- How can we test the premise that fish evolved into land animals via an accumulation of genetic accidents?

3- How can we test the premise that reptiles evolved into mammals via an accumulation of genetic accidents?

OK, this conversation is over. My statement above is correct, and you know it, since there is no articulated theory and no use of it in field and lab. Even creation science attempts to DO science. AND you counter with profanity? That speaks volumes.

Bye

It's clear Joseph has no more to offer than KF except perhaps profanity, which to my knowledge KF never stooped to.

Nice of you to ignore that part of my post.

Of course there is a use for ID in the lab and field- just as there is a use for forensic science and archaeology-> it matters to any investigation how that which is being investigated arose.

Perhaps your husband is a scientist but you appear ignorant of science.

"ID is based on observations and experiences- ie our knowledge of cause and effect relationships.

That's an example of an articulated theory??
And no attempt to explain the details of even part of the hominid record.

"Perhaps your husband is a scientist but you appear ignorant of science."

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Been in the business for 30 years. And my husband (in the business for >40) declared what was on UD as utter BS.

Oh I think that KF would stoop to the profane... just not in public.


On a sorta different tack... UD is like a holodeck for the tardologists. They let a number of people "program" it. Every time the "environment" becomes a little too unpleasant (like someone asking a simple question) they simply tweak it a bit:

"Computer, delay responses from LK for 72 hours."

Because they allow some input from the "outside" they think that their simulation is actually "connected to" or "reflects" the real world. Witness Josephs (and just about all the UDders) responses to questions they think they have already addressed.

Perhaps more of a mix of the voluntary psych ward in "One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest" and a TNG holodeck. Which one is Nurse Ratched?

Yeah Barry... there is a resemblance in both character and image. Someone with genuine 'Shop skillz would have to do that though.

I'm used to seeing UDers revel in their own ignorance, but just wow:

News:

In Scientific American, we learn “ThNeuroscience of the Gut: Strange but true: the brain is shaped by bacteria in the digestive tract"(Robert Martone, April 19, 2011)

....

Then how come we don’t all dissolve in the chlorine in the swimming pool?


Illion: "....grin* You have a talent!"

aedgar: "This discovery is the death knell for antibacterial soap. With the exception of course, of those who want to commit suicide. I wonder how the antibacterial soap companies will market that?"

JoeG: .... Insults scientists, silly math..."And that would be why we don’t dissolve in a chlorinated swimming pool- I guess it would depend on the amount of chlorine and the time period."

Anatomy and chemistry lessons anyone?

Badger, REC's not parodying.  They're the actual responses.

All that proves is the information in our genes is vastly superior to the information in bacterial genes. Perhaps the bacterial genes have evolved much faster. So much the worse for them.

Please keep theology out of and away from Intelligent Design. Thank you.


Boy...that's rather uncivil, doncha think? What are the odds of any bannination? Of a slight reprimand? A slap on the cheek or wrist? a cough? A sigh? A tiny violin?

A message for Joseph: I received yours, went to your blog and was unable to comment (no way of posting) so the situation is no different. As far as your claim:

"However seeing that I have already destroyed your main premise I don’t see what there is to discuss."

Uh, no. You did nothing of the sort.
If you can apply the ID paradigm to the hominid fossils, then do so. But, please realize: Anthropologists have to write volumes to explain the sequence of fossils as they see it, and draw on the physical parameters, ages and geographical distributions to do so. Your simplistic one -sentence answers do not take care of the details. So, pick a section of hominid sequence and apply the ID paradigm. Why is that so hard? Your cohorts at UD made it sound like it was no big deal, but I can't get them to mention a single fossil, bone length ratio, joint angle, strata, radiometric method, comparison with modern humans or apes, nada. All I get is religion and philosophy and that all anthropologists are wasting their life, not to mention being left out of the conversation for days at a time by a biased and draconian moderation policy.

So defend your friends' claim, since they won't.

Good luck with that.  Joe is practicing cargo cult science.  You give him

The fossils are of organisms that once lived.

Thre, they are explained.


You might as well try discussing modulation indices and signal-to-noise ratios with a Pacific islander who builds radios out of coconuts.

or something like that.

You know, if we could redirect that impenetrableness and sell it as armor, we'd make kajillions.
