Let us begin with Isaiah 57:20-21:


But the wicked are like the tossing sea,
which cannot rest,
whose waves cast up mire and mud.

"There is no peace," says my God, "for the wicked."

There's no way this will go another 1000 pages. UD seems to be running on fumes now.

Huzzah!  Thank you my friends for all your many comments, witicisms and to all the UD people  for all their excessive stupidity and cluelessness, without which none of this would have been possible.

I want to buy The First Book Of Tard!  Plese produce it for us.

I bet it would outsell the Tard books it's based on too.

A hearty thank you for those brave souls that are so willing to go and mine TARD for the rest of us.  You've provided me with endless hours of entertainment.

There's no way this will go another 1000 pages. UD seems to be running on fumes now.

I sympathize with your thought. However, let us recall that UD was shuttered before the Official UD thread was started. Dembski originally shut his blog down sometime after Judge Jones's decision in Dec '05. In January '06, Dembski announced that with the help of 'friends' it would keep going. The Official UD Thread was inaugurated around that time. The whole 1,000 page business is derived from the second act of UD. While UD might seem to be running on fumes now--and I agree, it does--who knows what the future holds for that site. It is, after all...

Uncommonly Dense.

That's funny, the other bible line I was thinking about opening with was Ecclesiastes.

Quote
9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

The original thread has 29,999 comments. Aren't there supposed to be 30,000? Has Dembski's Meisterwerk all-caps guest appearance been disappeared or summat? Enquiring (read enebriated) minds want to know!

eta: rats! "no", the original post doesn't count. But that doesn't mean that Demsbki's guest appearance wasn't  disappeared anyway (unless it wasn't, sorry)Eta: Double rats. SteveStory pointed out the mistake while I was typing this)ETA Triple Drat (which is tard spelled backwards, three times) he spelled it out even more when I was typing that Ok I give up!!!!!one!!!!one

If 6000 is approximately equal to 4.5 billion, then.... oops, wrong thread.

Little known fact, 1,000 full pages is actually 29,999 comments. The original post counts as the 0th, not the 1st comment, and so the nth page contains comments (n-1)*30 through n*30-1.

to make it easier for the inebriated, the number of replies on the thread is the number of replies, not the number of comments, which is 1+number of replies. The 1 is the original comment, which is comment 0. So the first page shows comments 0 through 29 inclusive, which is a total of 30. The second page shows comments 30 through 59 inclusive, etc. So to cut it off at a full 1,000 pages means original post plus 29,999 replies.

wow richtard you do that so well.

anyway i suspect the tard mines have several more years left in them before the company closes shop and finds some other community to exploit.  After they leave town, there will be enough tard laying around on the ground to tide yourself over during those dark frozen nights.  Never fear.  wait until we figure out how to mechanize this tard extraction shit.  Cheap Tard for every damn body!

Maybe I'm just a traditionalist, but I'd like to see the word "Official" in the title of this new thread. Can't have a bunch of unauthorized UD threads popping up hither and yon.

And can we get a show of hands....... how many people have read damn near every word of part I of the Official Uncommonly Dense Discussion Thread? I would be one. I'm sure I haven't missed more than 20 or 30 pages - and possibly none. Rather daunting, really, in retrospect.

Anyhow, thanks to all for the many giggles and LOLs over the past two and a half years.

Cheers!

*Raises hand

I don't comment frequently, but I was watching from the start.

And I also agree with earlier comments that just when you think UD can't keep up the level of tard - it does!

Then we follow his link to the original article and find this at the bottom of the page:

Update 7/17/2008:  After publication of this story, the APS responded with a  statement that its Physics and Society Forum is merely one unit within the APS, and its views do not reflect those of the Society at large.

William Dembski: The American Physical Society, an organization representing nearly 50,000 physicists, has reversed its stance on climate change and is now proclaiming that many of its members disbelieve in human-induced global warming.

Well, that should be easy to confirm.

Quote
American Physical Society:

APS Position Remains Unchanged

The American Physical Society reaffirms the following position on climate change, adopted by its governing body, the APS Council, on November 18, 2007:

"Emissions of greenhouse gases from human activities are changing the atmosphere in ways that affect the Earth's climate."

Hmm.

Let's check out Dembski's original source, Michael Asher on Daily Tech. Well, that's what he says alright. But what's that in the comments?

Quote
CynthiaCyndi: On the front page of the APS website there is a statement as follows:

APS Climate Change Statement

APS Position Remains Unchanged

Did Michael Asher retract his statement. Um, no. But he does try to justify it.

Quote
MIchael Asher: It's original stance was that no significant dissent existed, and that no publication or APS officer would refer to the debate as anything but settled. Previously, APS publications rejected any paper which criticized the IPCC conclusions; now they are actively calling for such papers. That's a radical change in stance.

Darn those scientists, always asking for scientific papers.



Let me say, some "so-called" scientists have said this vein of Tard was exhausted. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright Brothers...
