|This is the actual reason why the fine folks at TSZ engage gpuccio. His arguments aren't very cogent. His story changes every time he opens his mouth. But once in a while he drops a gem like this, and that makes it worth your while.|
I buy that for *some* of them (and definitely for you you troublemaker you).
Some folke, however, I think have a white-knight syndrome. Like debate with gpuccio is going to convince these mythical "onlookers". Aint no onlookers reading through 1000 post threads dispersed among 3 blogs
either way, that's good shit right there I don't care who licked the paper
I think at this point UD has no onlookers. There's a small regular readership of the usual suspects, who lack the intelligence, the education and/or the willingness to understand science. And there's a much larger readership of, well, us. I'd be surprised if many "undecideds" make their way to UD any more. Dembski and Denyse are hardly household names, and no-one's heard of Gordon even in fucking Montserrat.
To a first approximation, UD is a comedy site and we're the only audience.
Math is just a language of reality. Its a waste of time to know it.
