Regarding the discussion about UD I would argue that sites like UD are the best Idiots like Dembski could have done fot their oponents. The comments by their followers display what ID means. Without them Dembski and the othe Idiots would just run fake journal pages like "Bio-Complexity" and fake labs like "Biologic Institute" and pretend to being serious scholars who are just ignored by mainstream science. Thus, the best thing for our side is if UD is kept alive and even better if it is run by people like Barry Arrington.

Though....now that Barry has freed up about a half-hour per week...maybe I should fire off an article to Bio-complexity. Anyone want in?

For shame! Many good posts under the mushroom banner. Anyone would think they didn't welcome critical examination of their scientific position...

I did wonder if you were sailing a tad close to the wind calling KF a liar and hypocrite!

Thanks, guys.  Yeah, I knew I was taking a risk, but my two main sock rules are 1) don't say anything you can't back up, and 2) don't censor yourself just to avoid bannination.  Rule 2 has cost me plenty of socks, but Rule 1 means I earn my banninations honestly.

Further, on UD we find KF welcoming Zoe to UD, several favorable comments upon his contributions, and the repeated use of Zoe's comments to advance his own long-winded points.

I have a different theory (not to be confused with a well constructed scientific hypothesis, of course).  

The prose and worldview are similar, however I find it impossible to believe (unless he is as capable of maintaining such a facade as Aaron in Primal Fear) that he can keep the pretence going over several years without reverting more closely to the writing style of gordon e. mullings of montserrat.  Then there is the brown nosing that goes on between them.

I suspect Zoe is a hopelessly indoctrinated disciple (probably the star pupil) from his school of Renewal and Reformation, the "Kairos Initiative" ... that Gordon knows full well who Zoe really is and probably even persuaded he/she to start posting there.  This would be an almost as interesting ethical dilemma as KF posting as two different users on the same board.  If anyone cared about such things w.r.t. the  IDealogues over there, that is.

Now, how to test the theory?

(I can does science too although i am not one, not even a lawyer or a forensik man).

I'd vote for not. That emphatic asterisk (I keep looking for a footnote) appears all over Zoe, but not in K/F, and other markers of common descent are absent in the other direction. I don't think he has the wit to keep two personas up-and-running. But the styles, the prose and the smackable certitude are certainly very close cousins.

how many pupils does this cocksmoke have at UD where he now spends most of his time?

zero as far as i can tell

the probability that another person would find his bullshit appealing is near nil, as far as i can tell.  from observing how the UDers deal with him, anyway

Quote (The whole truth @ Feb. 09 2012,02:17)
The reason I brought up importance is partly due to some comments by you and others and partly due to this question from Erasmus:

"who gives a fuck what they think?"

I think it's fair to say that most or all people here (at ATBC) care about what's said at UD (and elsewhere) by the IDiots (and by their opponents). Otherwise they likely wouldn't be here, or at least wouldn't stick around for long. The level of importance from one person to another undoubtedly varies, but I don't think that anyone here can honestly say that what the IDiots do or say (or "think") is completely unimportant.

I realize that we all have our own way of dealing with things, and I'm not trying to 'make' any ID opponents change their methods. I'm just speaking up about something that bugs me and hoping to influence EL to consider some things. I do feel strongly about it but I know that she can, and will, ultimately do whatever she wants.

To prevent any misunderstanding, by "this site" I meant ATBC.

I agree for the most part, though I could quibble with you about your choice of the word "important". I certainly don't find what goes on at UD important in a strict sense of the term:

 
Quote
Adjective:

   1. Of great significance or value; likely to have a profound effect on success, survival, or well-being: "important habitats for wildlife".
  2.  (of a person) Having high rank or status.


For me, UD is more compelling than important. The discussions and behavior there are indicative of a mindset that I find a little shocking, a little frightening at times, and unbelievable, but also fascinating. I'll engage in discussions there every so often just to see how they defend what I see as an obviously ignorant and erroneous claim.

Still, I agree with you in principle - a lot of us would not come to AtBC if not for UD, so clearly most of us care about UD...at least in the sense that we care enough about what they say and how they behave to gather and comment on it.

I am still curious though - what do you think one of the UD folks "pouncing" on a weak Lizzie would look like? What do you think would happen that would be significant in some way?

Pouncing on a weak EL would look like the way she's treated at UD, especially by the most arrogant assholes there. You may have noticed that some ID opponents are treated differently than others at UD. Bullies, which is what most or all of the IDiots are, are much more likely to pounce on what they perceive as an easy victim, and that's especially true when the bullies are part of a 'gang', like the IDiots at UD are.

If someone (e.g EL) shows weaknesses, even though they show strengths too, the predators at UD, and especially the most arrogant ones, are going to pounce on those weaknesses. The weaknesses enable and embolden the IDiots, and it should be obvious that most or all of the IDiots need see only a tiny bit of weakness to trigger their pounce reaction. They are looking for weaknesses. The vast majority of their thinking and their arguments are based on their desire to attack, dominate, and destroy any opponents. That desire is the driving force behind their mindset and agenda.

Whether something is compelling, important, or significant is up to each individual. I used the word important because it's what came to mind at the time, and I still think that it's an appropriate word for my points. Debating the specifically applicable term seems rather useless to me. I realize that you or others do not or may not agree with the words I use and that I may not always choose the right words, but I stand by what I've said. I think that the overall points I've made are valid.

There is other evidence that "Zoe" is Gordon. Zoe has repeatedly posted this chestnut, or fragments thereof, at the blog "Barbados Underground," supplying a Caribbean connection. Links to examples follow, although click with care, as these are slow loading, Flash laden pages that cause my browser to beachball for quite some time:

Examples here and here.

Somebody posting as Carlos Jordon has posted a version here.

And indeed in response to one of Zoe's repetitions on Barbados Underground another commenter states:

You see. this is a struggle for me and I dont want to be drawn into this argument (been there, done that with GP, Carlos, Gem of TKI etc.)

On Gordon's own blag he links to and extensively quotes comments from a page on Barbados Underground. Although not quoted, those comments include yet another copy of Zoe's sermon on truth. (Another commenter named technician IS* quoted responding, "@ Zoe…..please dont start with your crap !!!")

Further, on UD we find KF welcoming Zoe to UD, several favorable comments upon his contributions, and the repeated use of Zoe's comments to advance his own long-winded points.

Gordon is lonely. He created Zoe for company.

(And if he uses his left hand it feels like someone is really there.)

[Edit: corrections vis Gordon's blag]

I have a different theory (not to be confused with a well constructed scientific hypothesis, of course).  

The prose and worldview are similar, however I find it impossible to believe (unless he is as capable of maintaining such a facade as Aaron in Primal Fear) that he can keep the pretence going over several years without reverting more closely to the writing style of gordon e. mullings of montserrat.  Then there is the brown nosing that goes on between them.

I suspect Zoe is a hopelessly indoctrinated disciple (probably the star pupil) from his school of Renewal and Reformation, the "Kairos Initiative" ... that Gordon knows full well who Zoe really is and probably even persuaded he/she to start posting there.  This would be an almost as interesting ethical dilemma as KF posting as two different users on the same board.  If anyone cared about such things w.r.t. the  IDealogues over there, that is.

Now, how to test the theory?

(I can does science too although i am not one, not even a lawyer or a forensik man).

I'm inclined to go along with the "hopelessly indoctrinated disciple (probably the star pupil)" idea, although anything's possible.

Googling fragments of Zoetext from Oldman's sample it becomes obvious that a large percentage of his output is cut and pasted from other sources.

So there is a third alternative: Zoe has has large chunks of genuine KF in his stool, including the passages quoted upthread. Passages with the unmistakeable texture of KF are in fact Gordon - yet Zoe is not.

whats even more hilarious is that 1)  no one actually called that prick a "prick" and 2)  the prick ostensibly *has* a prick yet finds it despicable

That is a fantastic thread.  The blatant hypocrisy is there for all to see.

I especially love Gordon's "reverse appeal to authority", i.e. the dismissing of a lawyer's data because he's a lawyer complaint.

paraphrase: You should dismiss the argument on the facts, not the job of the presenter.

Of course, the facts are that Johnson doesn't have a clue about what's going on, or if he does have clue, then he is misrepresenting the facts to support his position.

It's not that Johnson is a lawyer, it's that he's Phillip Johnson.

I'd say, if Zoe and KF are the same person

I'd vote for not. That emphatic asterisk (I keep looking for a footnote) appears all over Zoe, but not in K/F, and other markers of common descent are absent in the other direction. I don't think he has the wit to keep two personas up-and-running. But the styles, the prose and the smackable certitude are certainly very close cousins.

What is it with creationists and the inappropriate use of punctuation marks?

Peter Griffin (who, he?) collects together some of Joe's recent insults and pastes them into a single comment.

KF says:
Quote
Joe: Pardon, but if you have been speaking in that way [and it looks like the clips are accurate, from your responses . . . ], I suggest you will find it best to dial back your tone a few notches. We in the main need to focus on issues not personalities. Controversial matters are best addressed in that way, otherwise the sidetracks will tend to derail serious discussion. KF

Barry says:

I agree with KF Joe. You are warned.

Funny how Joe get's a warning after dozens of "offences" and others are insta-banned after one...

The sad thing is that the Barry only got mad when I asked him to explain if appeal to authority was always a fallacy, and what an "expert witness" is.

Those posts have gone missing.

Well poop! I will miss your and Keith's posts over there. Very good stuff!
