The concepts that he writes about however...


Such as the concept that a red plastic ball spontaneously coming into existence is somehow equivalent to a ribosome spontaneously coming into existence? How is that relevant to ID?

What is he arguing for or against?

Perhaps someone can translate this into something meaningful.

Happy to help:

>>I agree with everything you say,

"Please don't bother me right now I am in the middle of something"

>>although I often use different terms.

"What the fuck are you talking about?"

>>I try to stick with the vocabulary of physics as much as possible.

"Whatever it is you are trying to tell me you are not making any sense at all.  You might as well be spouting Vogon poetry."

>>This is just one example of the arbitrariness …

"I'm going to start just saying random stuff back at you so you think i'm agreeing with you, then you'll hopefully go away and not bug me any more.  I come to parties to let my hair down, so please cut the metaphysical bollocks and stop blocking my route to the bar ... "

Organic molecules are made from atoms, which are made of electrons, protons, and neutrons, and the later two are made of up quarks and down quarks. What more do they need to know?  :p

UD News away till October 30
August 23, 2012 Posted by News under Adminstrative, Intelligent Design

Needing to finish up a manuscript for Christian Darwinism (Broadman and Holman, 2014), a book co-authored with Bill Dembski, the News desk needs to focus, focus, focus.

New book announcement: William A. Dembski and Denyse O’Leary slam “Christian Darwinism” in forthcoming book
August 6, 2010 Posted by O'Leary under Intelligent Design

In Christian Darwinism: Why Theistic Evolution Fails As Science and Theology (Broadman and Holman, November 2011), mathematician Dembski and journalist O’Leary address a powerful new trend to accommodate Christianity with atheist materialism, via acceptance of Darwinian (“survival of the fittest”) evolution.

Hey look...Dr. Dr. is on the author's page along with Chuck Norris and Ollie North:

Also brought to you by B&H- pre-filled, hermetically sealed communion cups of grape juice with a little wafer on top. I can't think of a greater perversion of the symbol of the COMMUNAL sharing of wine and breaking of bread.

"torturing young children for fun is morally evil"

Note the qualifier from the righteous Barry: for fun.

For profit? eh.....Barry? Wtf man. Why the qualifier?

Or is the qualifier because maybe your God occasionally demands it: Genesis 22:1-12, Judges 11:30-39, Numbers 31:16-18, (I Samuel 15:2-3, Isaiah 13:15-16, Deuteronomy 2:34, Deuteronomy 3:6-7, Exodus 12:29-30, 2 Kings 2:23-24,  Deuteronomy 13:6-10...

Mung:

One, where it is credible that we are not playing around where crocodiles lurk and where the odds of getting some loathsome taint are low.

In simpler terms, if objectors would simply be willing to address issues on the merits of fact and logic, with a modicum of common decency and broughtupcy, we could have a serious discussion.

The comments boxes of UD are open for just that, but over time consistently we find abusive objectors, evasive/distractive objectors and enablers for abusive and evasive/distractive objectors.

That is beginning to look to me very much like the warrant is not on the side of the objectors, and deep down they know it but are clinging to an ideological position for reasons that cannot be put up in polite and serious company.

Which reminds me a lot of the Marxists I had to deal with at the turn of the 80?s.

Ten years to go, if the timelines are truly parallel (and providing someone shows up for a high-noon showdown and refuses to back off under intimidation and mud-slinging etc), then.

That is part of why it is so important that here be places like UD etc where the issues can be dealt with on a level playing field basis, where those with the manners and attitudes of a swamp predator are not welcome.

Because calling folks "those with the manners and attitudes of a swamp predator" exhibits "address issues on the merits of fact and logic, with a modicum of common decency ".

Mullings, you're just a cowardly pulpit bully unable to carry himself in a public forum.

Quote
I hate to tell you but you completely misunderstood me – I was being sarcastic. I don’t admire the work of Sandra Harding at all. I wrote about it in the book Why Truth Matters, very critically.

Paul Gross is a friend of mine, and (with Norman Levitt) the origin of my view of Harding (see their book Higher Superstition).


Sal responds in full smarm:
Quote
Ophelia,

Thank you for responding and setting the record straight on my misunderstanding of what you wrote. Good luck with your A+ movement.

It stands to reason that someone capable of writing this with a straight face...
Quote
The ID community, in terms of its leadership, make very few technical errors and almost no major errors in terms of basic science.

...would be utterly unable to detect sarcasm in someone else's writing.

Illustrating the growing reach and influence of Uncommon Descent.  

UD's Impact rating must be going through the roof as an ever-increasing number of people learn that they have to keep an eye on it (or at least have their lawyers do it) to spot lies, slander and the stupidest and most elementary misunderstandings of their work being broadcast to the more retarded parts of the world as fact.
