Liz's bologna is busier now than UD.

Edit: I don't seem to be able to turn off auto-fix on the Kindle. Perhaps I need to type bl^g.

I really like Dr. Liddle. I may have mistaken her stubborn insistence on sticking to her guns (in the face of what I perceive as overwhelming and irrefutable arguments to the contrary) as intellectual dishonesty, and if I did I apologize. Dr. Liddle, I hope you continue to post here. As frustrating as you can be, this would be a boring site if we did not have someone from the other side to joust with. And it is fun to joust with you.

It has dawned on Bully Bannington that the brighter ID proponents have followed her to her blog, leaving him with the YECs.

I thought junkdnaforlife was an ID supporter (or a really deep sock)--wonder how many friendly fire victims there were?

I see the UD mele has spilled out of the bar into the alley and has now swelled into a full fledged riot in the viral streets. Apparently my ability to add and subtract integers had in fact not eroded, and I can simply no longer post to UD.

I have been hereby attracted to the mathyness of this post. Now I must look at this paper and see what all the excitement is about.

Emperor Palpington finally closes the door on Dr. Liddle:  
Quote
Liddle denies the universal applicability of the three laws of thought. And people wonder why I refuse to countenance her self-repudiating incoherence masquerading as rational argument on this site. Why? As has been said, anyone who denies the law of non-contradiction doesn’t need an argument; they need therapy. Someone else said, “Do not answer a fool according to her foolishness lest you be like her.” Liddle is a fool. She will no longer be spewing her folly on this site.

That is really quite dishonest, as I was banned without making any reference (IIRC) to his Three Laws of Thought.

He's obviously been lurking at my blog, hoping I'd utter an appropriate heresy.

What my banning did follow was a protest from me about his outing of DrREC.

fartmax- YOU are the one throwing insults around.

Bartax asks a good question in that thread:
   
Quote
Is UD so desperate for ‘traffic’ that people with severe social difficulties such as Joe are allowed to post without restraint or censure?

I woud love to hear Barry's answer.

I think the only open question about Barry's response is: will Bartax's bannination be silent or announced?

Now we know the answer...

Granville:

 
Quote
Anyone who can look at eyes and ears and brains and say “there is simply NO scientific evidence to back [intelligent design]” is so unconnected to reality that it boggles the mind. Has our education system so badly failed us that it produces people this unable to think for themselves? Even Richard Dawkins admits that living things “give the appearance of having been designed.”


Granville's grand ol' BS [ETA]

Yes, because an "appearance of" is definitely evidence for it.  So there is evidence that sticks are bent by being put into the water, with part of them being left in the air.  

Has our educational system failed us so badly?  In his case, either it failed badly, or he did.

Not that I agree with Dawkins that life has the "appearance of design," or at least it only does so with a whole lot of unwarranted assumptions (if not unusual in Western Civilization), but Granville's dreck is blithering idiocy regardless.

Thaumaturge, if all you are going to do is to continue to deny the undeniable – i.e., that people like Dawkins and Coyne insist that evolution is a fact! fact! fact! and only the details need to be filled in, you should move along. You bore me.


linky

Calling that POS a pompous ass is an insult to pompous asses everywhere.

He banned me.  Then, when he knew I could no longer reply, he went back and edited the comment you just quoted.  It now includes this at the end:
   
Quote
But you might want to read the article I refer to in my last post, where you will find the following reported:

   
Quote
Last fall . . . several of the world’s leading philosophers gathered with a group of cutting-edge scientists in the conference room of a charming inn in the Berkshires. . . .
The biologist Richard Dawkins was there, author of The Blind Watchmaker, The Selfish Gene, and other bestselling books of popular science, and so was Daniel Dennett, a philosopher at Tufts and author of Consciousness Explained and Darwin’s Dangerous Idea: Evolution and the Meanings of Life. So were the authors of Why Evolution is True, The Really Hard Problem: Meaning in a Material World, Everything Must Go: Metaphysics Naturalized, and The Atheist’s Guide to Reality: Enjoying Life without Illusions . . .
They were unanimous in their solid certainty that materialism—as we’ll call it here, to limit the number of isms—is the all-purpose explanation for life as we know it.


Of course, even Barry's amended comment doesn't support his claim, which was that Dawkins and Coyne
   
Quote
...believe the fundamental questions in biology have been settled and all that is left is to suss out the details.


I'm sure he's hoping that no one will point that out, but I'll bet he's ready with the ban hammer in case they do.

Keiths adds his name to the list of those banned by Mr. Shithead Barry Arrogant.

Alternative “logics” are of course elements of a dissolutive thinking, whose target is no more simply intelligence, reason, religion, ethics, morality or whatever but directly the Truth, the Absolute. No more something can be simple, transparent, or obvious. All must be relative, muddy and confused so that the new emperor Error can finally reign undisturbed. This dissolutive thinking in philosophy and science (among many other things) is specific of the post-materialist phase that will finally led humanity to its end. (About materialism, post-materialism and dissolution see René Guénon’s “The Reign of Quantity and the Signs of the Times”.)

I just assumed that Kairosfocus was making a joke -- the joke being that the "benefits" received from being involved with the ID movement are not really desirable.  A few times KF has alluded to various threats he's received, hackers attacking his website, stuff like that.  He attributes it all to  the Darwinists, of course.  I have no idea what evidence he has for that attribution.  And he also implied that my professional career would be imperiled if my involvement with UD became widely known, since I am in academia.  Little does he know that my academic career is going down the tubes as it is, and my involvement with UD has nothing to do with it -- except perhaps insofar as I spend too much time there and not enough time working on my own stuff.
