John Templeton passed away today.
 
Quote
In 1987, he established the John Templeton Foundation to fund projects that could reconcile religion and science. The Pennsylvania-based nonprofit has an estimated endowment of US$1.5 billion and awards some US$70 million in annual grants.


One wonders if WmAD will eulogize him. What with getting a cool $100K from them back in 1999 to write "Being as Communion: The Science and Metaphysics of Information", it would be a gracious gesture.

Doesn't Dr. Dr. still owe them a book after accepting some front money from them?

Quote (Rude @ UD)
There is an atheist argument that could be made and that would be via a kind of Platonism. Just as physicists tend to be mathematical Platonists (e.g., numbers are real, they’re actually “out there” and not just the rustling of neurons in the head), so also moral principles are real. The argument seems to me to be very much like the argument for natural law. The problem is that atheists tend to hate this argument—maybe because they don’t really want there to be a universal ethics.


"They" don't want there to be a universal ethics, which is why they espouse Platonism.  WTF?? Just yesterday I was talking to my Platonic-moral-relativist buddy who told me about the nice chat he had with our common Kantian-utilitarian acquaintance.

(scare quotes around "they" because Rude means atheists but unconsciously or consciously means everyone/anyone who disagrees with him/her)

But hasn't Father O'Dave stated that he doesn't believe in God, and comforms his conduct to the shallowest possible interpretation of Pascal's wager?

So what's all this pious bullshit?

We have gross models of gravity that permit us to predict trajectories of projectiles with considerable accuracy. Similarly, we have gross models of evoluton.

You really lost the plot there. NDE predicts nothing. Look at poor Dr. Lenski and his 20 years and 40,000 generations of E.coli. He couldn’t predict jack diddly squat about what or when (if anything) was going to happen to them in the way of evolving. All he could do was watch, wait, then when and if something did happen he could explain it after the fact.

You had better a get a clue pretty quick or you’re history here.

On second thought, get lost. That was just too stupid to tolerate.

Uncommonly Denyse gives a firm answer:
         
Quote
Common descent, uncommon descent, and colliding universes
O'Leary

A reader of The Spiritual Brain asks,

"… , you write that evolution (i.e., macro-evolution, descent by a common ancestor) is a fact, given the fossil record. Do you really believe this, or this is simply a concession to the scientific establishment, in other words, a disclaimer of sorts that is making sure that your ideas in this book can be taken seriously … "

Well that was grounds for a gourmet cup of coffee!

A good question. She answers firmly:
   
Quote
Anyone who thinks we would complicate our lives by also maintaining positions we do not support … has a future in writing afternoon soaps, where life is the art of the impossible.

So she accepts common descent. Right?

She continues (paraphrased for brevity):
   
Quote
I'd like to. But I don't understand it. The Big Bang. Maybe. Who knows? It's all arbitrary. The notion collapses in the telling. No. It's a religious exercise, quoth the raven. Could be. Beats me! In other words. Look. Evidence. Buy my book. The Spatula Brain.

(Is "grounds for coffee" a deliberate pun? More likely: Denyse's infelicitous writing.)

Follow the golden rule and trust in the wisdom and mercy of God to treat you as you’ve treated the rest of creation.

I'm not sure I would trust a 'loving' God who, according to ID Theory, individually hand-crafted every fatal disease on earth and made us prone to cancer to boot.  Maybe I'd trust him if I was absolutely sure he was dead.

This was about the closest I ever got to joining UD. Those idiots saying "atheists think this", "atheists have a problem with that" really got my goat. Disagreeing with atheism is fine but inventing what we think and feel is annoying.

Dr. Dr. D. tries to cheer up the troops. In a post eulogizing John Templeton, he talks about the source of Templeton's wealth (my emphasis).    
Quote
He shared with me regarding his initial investments at the end of the Great Depression and how they paid off big time: he chose 100 stocks that had fallen extremely low and invested $100 in each. When the economy turned around with the coming of WWII, those investments went through the roof. This, as he related, was the start of his brilliant investment career. That story is mentioned in the obituary linked to above; he must have told it a lot! Question: If ideas are like stocks, would this be a good time to invest in ID?

Short answer - no.

Longer answer - Dr. Dr. D. neglects to mention that ID has been around since at least the time of Paley. If it was going to pay off, one would hope that would have happened by now!

I do like the tacit admission that ID has sunk pretty low, even in the view of one of the biggest beneficiaries. Maybe his royalty checks for the latest rube-fleecing books aren't as large as he expected?

Classic case of survivor bias.  Yes, they laughed at Copernicus, Galileo, Einstein, Lemaitre, etc. They also laughed at Bozo the Clown.

To all would-be UD investors: the skill comes in picking *valuable* stocks when their prices are low.  Some stocks are cheap for a reason.

So, after you are President, will you

a.) Direct the U. S. Military to seek out and destroy all terrorists that are over-weight autodidact house boat owners.

b.) Re-activate Sgt Springer, bust him to buck private and make him your limo driver, so you can remind him every day how dumb he really is.

c.) Have him stuffed and turned into a rug for the oval office.

Dear heddie:

Your "anti-Dembski street-creds" are nonexistent to say the least. If they did exist, then I'd see them cited at Panda's Thumb and elsewhere. As for myself, I will only note that at least one prominent ID critic approves of my online conduct against Dembski.

And yes, I do hope that Dembski is "scared of me". I want him to be afraid, very afraid, of me. Why? It's time he receives an ample dose of the "medicine" that he's been dispensing towards his critics for years. Indeed, for his own despicable behavior towards me, he owes me a used black Leica M7 rangefinder camera in near mint to mint condition and several brand new Zeiss Leica M-mount lenses.

RTH - I'm more of the black knight type than a white knight... unless you're a fair damsel in distress.

But I'll pop over there soon as I can and try to straighten everything out.  Why can't you kidz just all pay nice nice huh?

I think it's been sorted. RTH saves Heddle. Atheists once again help their creationist brothers. It's a story as old as the world (6k years).

RTH loves Heddle pt 2:

Here I am defending him over at Abbie's.

Can we start a 'help fund(ie)' for me. Or an intervention.
Or something?

ETA: this isn't fair on Dave:

Dear heddie:

Your "anti-Dembski street-creds" are nonexistent to say the least. If they did exist, then I'd see them cited at Panda's Thumb and elsewhere. As for myself, I will only note that at least one prominent ID critic approves of my online conduct against Dembski.

And yes, I do hope that Dembski is "scared of me". I want him to be afraid, very afraid, of me. Why? It's time he receives an ample dose of the "medicine" that he's been dispensing towards his critics for years. Indeed, for his own despicable behavior towards me, he owes me a used black Leica M7 rangefinder camera in near mint to mint condition and several brand new Zeiss Leica M-mount lenses.
