+---Topic: My ISCID classification... started by Wesley R. Elsberry


Posted by: Wesley R. Elsberry on Dec. 08 2002,00:05

The ISCID moderator (John Bracht, if my sources know what they are talking about) recently posted concerning how ID critics came in 4 categories.



---------------------QUOTE-------------------
1. Open-minded skeptic: I'm interested, but not convinced.
2. Closed-minded skeptic: Not convinced and no longer interested in being convinced. Call me only if something new develops somewhere to cause quite a commotion.
3. Debunker: Not convinced; no longer interested in being convinced; interested only in convincing others they are wrong.
4. Debunking Crusader: Debunking to save humanity.

I've asked for what category I might be classed in.  Stay tuned for the results...

While on the subject of ISCID, does anyone else find it strange that discussion of purpose of design is shyed away from even though the ISCID home page says something like "retraining the scientific mind to see purpose in nature"?

Hmmm, I always thought the ISCID moderator is Micah Sparicio (sp?).

That is funny, isn't it.

"Look, there's purpose in biology!"

"But what's the purpose?"

"Sorry, can't talk about that!"
