Obviously, none of the above applies to you, nor most of the members here. To all of you, so-called "blind watchmaker" evolution (whatever the accepted term for it is nowadays) is a religion. It is your creation story, and, thus, you take challenges to it very personally. That explains the emotional, often vulgar responses to?and hostile treatment of?dissenters.
I don't think it's unreasonable to conclude that there are many similarities between the Islamic extremist and the dogmatic Darwinist. They're convinced they're right, you're convinced you're right. You both believe the infidels should be squashed, you just go about it different ways (murder vs. institutionalized discrimination). I'm willing to bet most of you would happily kill I.D. proponents if it weren't for the consequences (read: prison).
Well, that's quite the escalation there Jammer. First it was "Darwinists" squashing dissent, without any evidence of such. Then it was "Darwinists taking away Darwin skeptics' livelihood, again without even a minor reference. Now it's institutionalized discrimination (again, no reference) and a desire to kill I.D. proponents.
Say Jammer, can you even reference a time when a so-called "Darwinist" even threatened an I.D. proponent with some form of physical harm? Again...just curious.
