Just think, this unscrupulous, deluded shyster could someday be a judge:

arrington's idea of overwhelming evidence and FACT

I never said we have the testimony of hundreds of eyewitnesses. I said the record states there were hundreds of eyewitnesses. That record, which was written during the living memory of those who saw the events in question, is the only record we have, and there is no good reason to disregard it.
Being a lawyer, you may not have heard of this, but that type of evidence where one person tells what another person told him is called "hearsay" and it's not allowed in court.
       
Quote
A person may choose not to believe it, but it fits very well with all of the other evidence, about which volumes have been filled.
Yep, it's just as worthless as the rest of the "evidence".

But perhaps you are one of those people who believe the disciples willingly went to their gruesome deaths when all they had to do to avoid the agony was recant a wicked fable they knew to be a lie. Odd ducks those disciples. Dr. Johnson was quite write; martyrdom is the measure of truth.
Read your Bible, Barry.  Most of the disciples are barely mentioned before the crucifixion and are never heard from again after it.  Stories of their "gruesome deaths" are pius Christian fables.  I must agree with you, though: that type of "evidence" does indeed fit very well with all the other evidence and is of very similar quality.

I recently wasted an entire evening trying to reason with someone that (analogously) two flips of a coin could yield a heads and a tails in two distinct ways (HT or TH) giving the combination a 50% chance of success over either HH or TT. This person had already decided that the two combinations were identical, and no amount of demonstration would convince her otherwise. Attempts to show proof yielded blank stares or more illogical protests. It became clear that this person had placed an irrational world view as the stake in a debating game against me. After the debate got started, our discussion had nothing to do with discovering truth, nor illuminating each other’s views, rather a win-at-all-costs attitude emerged as the keystone of the discussion. She was playing a game, and one that she plays every day in life: truth is what you can make others believe, and not anything that can be determined by universal principles. I was subject to any objection that appeared to provide the slightest bit of wiggle room for the person’s argument, and an utter lack of willingness to engage my points on their merits. For every advance I made in my arguments, she doubled down and protested all the more. Her arguments became more long-winded and rambling in an attempt to filibuster, seeking to derail the heart of the discussion by finding some small weakness in my peripheral knowledge, to try and gain the upper hand. After many revolutions of circular arguments and backwards reasoning on her part, when it became all the more clear that her protests would yield no fruit, she lost all interest in the matter and shifted to an unrelated argument.

I then noticed there was no dinner cooking in the oven, that my martini had not been prepared and my pipe and slippers remained stubbornly in their resting place rather than being presented to me on my customary padded cushion.  I filed for divorce the next day.

Robert 'I ain't no stinking monkey' Sheldon, physicist, lets the (dead and not dead) cat out of the bag regarding common descent.  Perhaps Joe has found a soulmate.
 
Quote
Suppose for the moment, that your ancestor was a monkey, and this supposedly explains your opposable thumb. But wait, maybe your ancestor was a savannah monkey like a baboon, how does that explain opposable thumbs? And where did the tail go? And for that matter, why couldn’t racoons be an ancestor–they have opposable thumbs? The point is that this common descent argument neither predicts nor is falsifiable. The presence or absence of opposable thumbs can neither verify nor invalidate the thesis. Common descent doesn’t require similarity, it only suggests it.

I'll shut up now as I seem to be hogging the page.  The reduced number of posts over there means it's easier to spot the tard and harder to refrain from digging it up.

Yes, appeasing the science geeks on an ID blog is a recipe for what? If we sense weakness, we'll... what? Starting posting charts and graphs? There's something deeply twisted about the idea that letting your opponents, or just those who have different beliefs post and debate is "appeasement".

Barry should really just re-phrase the question to: "do you want to be banned - yes or no"

What he is really doing is a variation on the old "do you still beat your wife?" question.

I'm still predicting the Second Coming of DrDr Bill.

Of all the many purges, this is the most artificial.

Something's coming, and it isn't just Barry Arrington.

So Barry is a chief minister for some other authority. I thought there was some similarity.

Coincidence?





I think not.

The thing that gets me about Wikipedia’s sources is that their [sic] second (or even third) hand. This doesn’t mean that they’re not reliable. They may be in most cases. But when explaining that the gospels are eyewitness accounts, I usually get “but they’re unreliable!”

What’s the difference? The gospels are secondhand accounts, just like an eyewitness account reporting an incident. If one is valid, then so is the other, unless you want to start moving goalposts.

Just because 'second-hand' and 'secondary source' sound similar it does not make them equivalent.

Second Hand: "Someone told me Barry Arrington had allegedly raped a duck."

Secondary Source: Harvard Law Review analysis of the case and verdict as recorded in the transcript of the trial of Barry Arrington on alleged duck rape charges

It’ll also be entertaining to watch the slough of sock puppets come through over the next couple of weeks.

Stand fast, people!

I, for one, am uninterested in posting there at this point. And not because I was banned or even because I find their behavior rude or what-have-you.

Truth be told, I don't even hold any anger or animosity towards Barry or anyone else at UD. I mean, it's a blog...how serious is the exchange on it really in the context of things? Why should I take Joe's, Gordon's, Barry's, Gil's or anyone else's ramblings/threats/rants/arguments/etc there seriously? I just don't find any reason to get worked up over it. And frankly, why in the world would anyone here - or anyone, period, for that matter - want to give them that kind of power?

The fact is, their voices are very small overall in the context of the US, nevermind the world. They don't even reflect the voices of some of the more prominent fringe groups. So, I just don't feel threatened by their behavior in the least.

Maybe it's just me, but enjoyed posting there - the little I did - not to try to win points or get them to admit they were wrong about something or even to show "onlookers" some factual point. I posted there because I wanted to argue against something I felt was erroneous. They...or at least Barry...have decided they don't want that occurring anymore. Ok. It's no skin off my teeth. It's a little less entertaining, but that's about all.

A good point Erasmus. I don't feel I'm confusing the two though. It just seems there's a few folks here who are actually annoyed about being banned. I just really don't care. Banning me won't stop me from pointing and laughing at them from other places, so I don't see what Barry thinks he accomplished. In fact, I really feel it's the best thing he could have done from an entertainment standpoint.

don't confuse "pointing and laughing at them" with "taking them seriously" please

ID is deader than jesus's toenail clippings and buddha's dried dung.  and it has been for years

that doesn't mean that there aren't LULZ to be had at the tards expense.  barry is the sort of retarded bully that will always be fun to piss on no matter what the context, it just so happens that in this situation they are completely and utterly wrong.  that is worth a lulz multiplier of at least an order of magnitude

A good point Erasmus. I don't feel I'm confusing the two though. It just seems there's a few folks here who are actually annoyed about being banned. I just really don't care. Banning me won't stop me from pointing and laughing at them from other places, so I don't see what Barry thinks he accomplished. In fact, I really feel it's the best thing he could have done from an entertainment standpoint.

got it!  while i like to play "Soi tres mas cynical que est" on TV in this case it's really true.

but i didn't always feel that way.

plot "length of time socking at UD" against "how pissed you are at being banned this time" and i imagine there is lots of unexplained variation.  some of these socks have survived for yeeears and that is amazing

plot "log (number of your socks previously murdered at UD)" against" how pissed you are at being banned this time" and it will become clearer

or am i wrong about that?

Excuse me- ID will only be dead when you assholes acyually ante-up testable hypotheses and positive evidence for your position.

Until then all evos are just pieces of shit fucking assholes.

Congratulations...
