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

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...

Well, look who's back.  

Hey, Barry and KF, you like to pontificate about how we are a bunch of nasty, mudslingers over here.  Little Joey is one of your guys.  Proud of the company you keep?

Taken a look at UD lately?

In fact, the very reason you are here is because UD has just expired and you are bored all alone in your basement with no one to argue with, as only when people argue with you do you feel as if you are alive. That somebody cares.

Tell you what Joe, turn off comment moderation at your blog and I'll have a debate with you. You can pick the topic.

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?

I'm not angry about the bannings, especially since I didn't have a sock in that fight.  Barry has every right to run UD however he wishes.

I do get angry about the hypocrisy, lack of respect for freedom of speech, willful ignorance, and blatant dishonesty on display there.  I'm extremely angry that these people can affect my life and the education of my children by voting based on their arrogantly held, essentially ridiculous beliefs.

UD is a joke.  Dominionism and related movements are a threat.

I thought you said ID wasn't anti-evolution.

If ID is OK with evolution, then ID won't be dead when evolution is supported.

You are so full of wrongness.

Bored with UD?  I'm surprised that you can still post there... oh, that's right... double standards.

Just like you who can say there is no evidence for evolution, in spite of 150 years of research and can say there is evidence for ID when there is nothing.

Double standards...

I see your point Patrick, though to me, UD isn't specifically related to the greater social conservatism and an political theocracy. Sure, some of the folks who go there support those greater socio-political movements, but UD itself is really just a small gathering of small-minded, powerless, folk. I actually think the folks at UD - like, Barry, Joe, Gordo, Gil, etc. feel that the conservative, sectarian movement is failing, or at least not accomplishing the things they want. They feel powerless to put forth their real-life agendas, so they go to UD to vent and whine and feel powerful.

I just see them as pathetic and I don't take them seriously.

But the larger movement still gets legislation introduced in state governments, and individual teachers still undermine evolution in the classroom. Either ignoring it or teaching it badly.

I see UD as an important, defining outpost of the ID movement, one that consistently identifies ID with creationism and dominionism. And that's a good thing.

No question and I do take that seriously. And it's no question that the UD denizens reflect that movement's mentality, it's just that I don't see the actions on UD itself contributing to that movement at all.

UD is a lovely record of the overall message that ID is creationism and dominionism however, so I'm all for them keeping it up.  :D

In that, I think you're mistaken.

well, hide and watch.  that joint aint nothing but a troll bin.  to the extent that anything going on there correlates with any sort of fundie movement at large in this country has fuckall to do with UD as a motivator and more to do with fundies being the same everywhere.   they all have an ass-in-mouth virus (creationism) and this particular rest stop is the population you are sampling but that doesn't mean this is the origin of the ass in mouth virus.


but, hell yes UD consistently identifies ID with dominionism, and makes it obvious that it is nothing but a shittier, balls-less mock up of rehashed creationism.  but that don't mean shit.  ID is dead.  aint going anywhere anytime, ever.  creationism is alive because retarded people breed every day but this particular form of creationism is dead in the water.

so, barry is a creationist activist of sorts when he isn't raping ducks.  so maybe there is some overlap there.  but thats about it as far as i can tell

I find the current purge a bit of a yawn. I predict that within a week or two people will don new socks and the cycle will repeat itself once again. It would be nice if people could refrain from visiting the site for a month just to see if the site would implode.

Ever since Dave Scott left and DrDr has let go of the reins I've noticed that the site has cycled between being tolerant and wielding the ban hammer with abandon.

Of course in the early days even expressing a polite doubt would get you banned.

On the moon's existence and eyewitnesses and whatnot:

In about four days time we will have a new moon. We won't be able to see it. If we can't see the moon, does it still exist in the same sense as before when we could see it? If we can't see it how do we know it exists? If the moon is "new" what happened to the old one?

Moving on (or not)...

If the Father is the Son and the Son is the Father then, obviously, both exist at the same time.
But before the Son there was the Father because, obviously, the Father precedes the Son.
But how can the Son and the Father be the same thing if one preceded the other?
Did the Son both exist and not exist at the same time?

OK... enough of that. Time for a frosty beverage.

I think Neil Schipper is waving at us:

like it or not, all of our knowledge is probabilistic — knowledge of whether we are presently wearing socks, whether we love our mommies, whether we’re presently alive (tho i admit i’m having trouble with that last one)

Of course, Christians will tell you that the Son is "eternally begotten" of the Father, so that the Father doesn't precede the Son.

I love being lectured on logic by people who believe in the Trinity, the hypostatic union, and the "eternally begotten" Son.
