It's been a week since Telic Thoughts exhibited a heartbeat. We're going to call it.

Telic Thoughts died at 2 o'clock GMT, some 37 minutes ago. The Vice Telic Thinker has left the morgue, but we do not know to where...

We can thank a certain nasty little blowhard with a hard-on for third rate homo-erotic prose for that.

TT is back! Techne has discovered the surest way to fight cancer: a healthy dose of bad-ass scholastics.

Quote
If the emergence of cancer is a causal process and we want to know what causes cancer and we want to design something that causes cancer cells to die, I suppose a good way to start is to have a proper understanding of what a cause is in the first place. Again, what follows is an attempt to briefly lay out a few important Scholastic concepts with regard to causality as it will be relevant before ditching "random variation" and natural selection" as "explanations" or "reasons" or "causes" for the emergence of cancer.

Say what?

I'm not a medical researcher, but I'd think that what to look for is something that would selectively kill cancerous cells and only those, while leaving other cells unharmed.

Danged if I'd know how to do that, though, especially as different types would likely require entirely different algorithms.

No new threads for a month now, looks like TT has joined the many many ID websites that have finally realized they've said everything that can be said and called it a day.

Funny really because if you believed what they were saying over there the evidence for ID grows every day and if that were true then sites like TT would be growing too.

Except it's not. So it's not.

So I just popped over and nothing there is moving. This made me laugh though:

Telic Thoughts hasn't had a new post since Nov 7. There is some interesting news there though. "Guts", the guy who maintains TT, has changed from being an "ID Creationist" to a "Skeptic".

Not using scare quotes there, just quoting him exactly because he doesn't really go into any length, at least in that thread, on his uh...evolution. :-)

Since Gary's so boring and clueless, I thought I'd mention that the exchange on the TT link I gave, between Guts and several other commenters about his newfound skepticism, is pretty interesting. He mentions Newtown, they say the Problem of Evil is no big problem for theism at all, and he goes on to give evidence--some from his critics' own comments--that it's actually a really big fuckin problem for christianity. Worth a gander.

Thanks for the reference Steve. Quite enjoyable compared with Gary's...uh...lunacy and UD's crickets.

In reading through, this comment from Daniel caught my attention in particular:

And any good fundamentalist parent will answer with Genesis 5:4 – "After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters." (BTW, I don't think Abel married anyone!)


Danny-boy there clearly didn't think through his knee-jerk fundy parent response. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the idea that Caine's and Seth's wives must have been several hundred years younger than their husbands.

Ken Ham is at least honest about this. The Creation Museum informs its young patrons that Adam's children married their brothers and sisters.

These were purportedly the people who passed down the creation myth(s), thus they would have given birth to creationism.

The fundies say that the genes in those days were more pure in those days so it was okay to interbreed. This purity is why they all lived for hundred of years.
