My attitude is simple. Whenever my personal interpretation of the Bible conflicts with my scientific speculations, I go with the Bible every time. However, when my personal interpretation conflicts with something I know to be a slam dunk fact, I re-evaluate my biblical interpretation, knowing that I made a mistake in reading it. How do I know that? I know it because the Bible will never contravene a fact, therefore, if it appears to, I am misreading it. How do I know that the Bible will never contravene a fact? Because the Bible is inerrant.

Just had a glance at that thread - the only live one at the moment. From what I gathered, Stephen B. has left a shred of sanity compared to tjguy who takes him to task about Teh Fludd.

Barry.

It is as "obvious" that living things appear to be designed as it is that the earth appears to be flat, and that the sun and other celestial objects revolve around the earth.

However, the evidence points to the facts that:
1) living things were not designed for a purpose;
2) the earth is not flat;
3) the sun and celestial objects do not revolve around the earth.

Nice try, and actually, I think this was a creative attempt by you, Barry, but your argument would not persuade any instructor teaching Freshman Composition. Again, and seemingly always with ID, the analogy is not apt. Evolution is cooborated not only by the biological evidence, but by evidence in chemistry, physics, archeology, and other sciences (and now, apparently, the humanities). Triangulation, Barry. "Design" enjoys no such status.

No, Barry, it is you who is just like a YEC, except that you have added one more matryoshka doll: you take the eyeballing of "design," wrap it in the evidence for evolution, then doll it up ;) with another matryoshka called begging the question (not to mention the burden of proof).

Thank you for getting your paper in on time, but I just gave you an F, and no, classroom participation will not alter it. :)

P.S. I notice that the split between IDists and YECs, that I predicted so long ago in the comments at Red State Rabble, has begun.

What I did not predict was the sudden emergence ;) of an attempt to correlate YECs and those who accept the scientific evidence for evolution, while at the same time allowing those still uninformed about ID (an astonishing large audience, it seems, after all of that hard PR work) to think that intelligent design is merely "God had something to do with evolution."

Veeeery interesting.

I'm surprised as well, Kristine.  I was expecting a series of fundier-than-thou purges, with a "six days, flood and baraminology" loyalty oath.  It will be interesting* to see where this attempt to co-opt theistic evolutionists ends up, especially given Dr Dr D's current employment.



* for some definitions of the word "interesting".

SCheesman sticks his neck out on Barry's 9000th post celebration:

Quote
I wish I could celebrate, but I fear 9000 is a reflection of a vast inflation in the number rate of postings in the last year or two, with a corresponding decline in comments.

I owe a good deal of what I know today about ID from UD, both from a scientific and theological perspective, and used to enjoy the long threads and back-and-forth between proponents and opponents.

But now, many, if not most posts get nary a comment, and the ones engendering some debate often are lost in the crowd. Since the recent purge of participants who failed to pass what amounted to a purity test, it’s been pretty quiet here. The most lively recent discussion featured a debate between OEC’s and YEC’s. Now I enjoy that sort of thing (like on Sal Cordova’s old “Young Cosmos” blog), but it’s hardly what UD used to be known for.

Maybe the new format gets more visitors than it used to, but I’d be interested in seeing the stats, including comments per post, posts per month, unique visitors etc. over the last few years.

I miss the old days. I expect a lot of us do.


Please, Barry, celebrate this milestone with a Loudspeaker/ Bannination.

Does anyone have SCheesman's contact details?  I'm sure he could find some of the "back-and-forth" he's looking for here.  He's probably just waiting for an invitation.

For a blog purportedly about Intelligent Design, the only OPs that generate a significant number of comments are about religion.  For example, How TEs are like YECs, which has 161 comments to date, with 347 instances of the word "God".

Just in case there was any confusion about what really excites IDists.

(hint: it's God)

Everybody already knows this, but still, reading through those comments and seeing some of the regular UDers with their guard down, in full god-botherish mode is quite revealing.

So, we’ve lost PCID, ISCID, UD is now a news site, and Telic Thoughts is pumping very slowly. Does this mean ID is dying? No, on the other hand, it is professionalizing. There are starting to be conferences on ID, ID has a journal, and ID is starting to appear more in other journals (though not usually under the title “Intelligent Design”).

It would be nice if there were a research spot where ID’ers and their critics could hang out and discuss things like men, but there is not.

Commenters,

Thank you for your comments.

The management at UD has wrestled with the identified issues for over a year now. The problem is, like most decisions we have to make in our lives, there are no clear “good” and “bad” answers to these questions. Instead, you have tradeoffs.

On the one hand, we know that the lifeblood of a blog is constant new content. On the other hand, we love the intense, largely civil discussions that go along with some of the more in-depth posts. So the tradeoff is between higher traffic (more posts) and more opportunity for discussion before the in-depth posts move down the page (fewer posts).

At UD we try to achieve both goals though a system that is similar to the one KF suggests. You might have noticed that the four posts just under the lead post “stick” longer than the other posts. The reason for this is that the news posts do not go into this area. They are pushed down by any new post that comes along. The posts in the “sticky” area tend to be the more in-depth posts that draw more comments. We are trying to have the best of both worlds, higher traffic attracted by constant new content; and in-depth discussion of the posts in the “sticky” section.

I am not worried about the comments-per-post data. As Denyse points out, that ratio was bound to go down when we added a news desk.

I am also quite pleased with the quality of the discussions at UD. This is especially the case when I look at other sites around the web (all pro-Darwin), where the discussion is barely above schoolyard taunt level most of the time.

All in all, while we continue to look for ways to improve, I am pleased with where we are at UD, and I am especially proud of Denyse’s news desk. She does a fantastic job for us.

Barry

LOLOCAUST.

Yes, definitely a LOLOCAUST, and the usual demonstration of denial and IDiocy.


"we know that the lifeblood of a blog is constant new content"

What new content? It's really just the same old shit, and could all be distilled down to something like this:

Darwin was evil.

Anyone who isn't a zealous evangelical intelligent design creationist fundy is evil, and will burn in Hell forever.

Evolution doesn't happen, and the ToE is evil.

Science is evil, but we thoroughly enjoy the perks it provides.

Worship me and my God, or risk my and God's wrath.  

We're exceptional, and specially created in God's image.

We're God's official spokesmen.

We are inerrant.

Darwinists/evolutionists/materialists/naturalists/atheists are the spawn of the Devil and are always wrong.

Reality sucks. Fantasy rules. The crazier it is the more we like it and believe in it.

Everything is rapidly decaying and sinful. Repent now!

God-did-it.

For instance from 2010/11 we had a clear sock puppet and troll wave that sought to kill UD, and that is reflected in part of the statistics. Some of the die-off is due to the tail end of that wave.

What the other commenters perceived to be an interesting debate in 2011 and miss so much they are now thinking of migrating to another site was in fact an attempt to kill UD, and they never noticed the death throes because the debate was so - lively!

And what even you admit to be a "die-off" is in fact the healing process.

It pays to be trained in Christian apologetics, doesn't it, KF?

God must be on a long free lunch if he just waves socks at UD.

O'Leary offers evidence against human evolution:

The few claims for which we have hard evidence are stuff like cave art (which went downhill over the millennia) and temple complexes (Gobekli Tepe, about 12000 years old, went down over the millennia too), which doesn’t support Darwin’s gradual ascent thesis at all.


That, plus the fact that she's way dumber than most writers were a century ago, so take that Darwin!

Her whole OP is one huge mountain of manure madness. I was starting to pick some tidbits for your edification but was overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of fail.

And she's so proud of it she signed it with O'Leary instead of News.

What the fuck does that even mean?  Did she just piss off a few hundred million fellow catholics?

She might love to piss off Catholics; iirc she belongs to a group of fundie dissenters who want to go back to the roots.

Isn't she a former fundy evangelical and converted for whatever reasons?
