PaV  
Quote
Just as a reminder, one of the things that Darwinian theory predicts is vast numbers of intermediate forms present in the fossil record. Oops.

'Darwinian' is a term with a variety of meanings, and they are often conflated. In any case, Darwin devoted a whole chapter to The Imperfection Of The Geological Record.. He also discusses the meaning of "intermediate varieties" in terms of ancestry using the fantail and pouter pigeons as illustrative examples. And, of course, modern biology has advanced considerably since Darwin.

It would be nice if PaV and others had at least a rudimentary understanding of evolutionary theory, at least catch up to the scientific literature circa 1859.

I couldn't get a coherent response when I asked about the Templeton Foundation. Did a VP state that the Templeton Foundation solicited research proposals? Or was this just a "lie" printed by the NYT?  The link to the NYT article did not constitute evidence, according to Mr. Scot. It seems that if a Templeton Foundation VP said so, then it probably happened. My posts stopped showing up after that....

First they'd have to recognize that their (and my) hero Isaac Newton (the real one) said that, in order for his theory of gravity to work, action at a distance was required.

The Baylor search page stuff, I don't get it, what's going on?

Some internet gossip is going around suggesting that I am about to start a ďnew job.Ē My job, and one I intend to keep for a long time, is as Research Professor in Philosophy at Southwestern Seminary. This is where I teach and this is where I derive my salary and benefits. I very much enjoy my students and colleagues... In addition to this ďday job,Ē I have formal and informal affiliations with many groups and organizations. Because of some health issues in my family, we continue to live in the Waco area (Ft. Worth is about 90 miles north, requiring of me a long commute to Southwestern Seminary). Because Baylor is in Waco and because I was on the faculty of Baylor for over five years, I continue to stay in touch with Baylor colleagues, some of whom I collaborate with in research.

Wes was just pointing out that you don't get listed in the Baylor faculty/staff directory simply by "staying in touch with Baylor colleagues." †Dembski may not be ditching the West Southwest Bible and Taxidermy College, but it does look like he's starting something new at Baylor.

Darwinism was in trouble then, because it seemed to be at odds with genetics.  But Fisher showed how the two could be reconciled, and started the field of population genetics.  And things have moved on a bit since then.

Iíve never been able to verify that rumor. Templeton goes to great pains here to disown ID...However, if you have anything from the Templeton Foundation saying they were soliciting proposals for ID research feel free to provide it here.

"Feel free." But how long will the feeling last?

KL provides an article from the New York Times which includes a quote from Charles L. Harper Jr., senior vice president at the Templeton Foundation.

Hi lkeithlu (may I call you KL?). Actually DaveScot will see the links: he does read this forum. That's why we all know he will graciously print a retraction and an apology for his overreaction. That's just the kind of guy he is.

Incidently, I did tell him that John Templeton is from my county (no kidding!;) and that maybe I could ask. He doesn't actually live here, though, and I suspect that he would not appreciate my intrusion if he did. Worth a shot.

Well, I guess I'll go to work, feeling sorry for myself that I am no longer welcome at UD. Ooooh, the shame of it all...

Well she did get her picture in a popular culture rag, that's about all Dembski can claim.

DaveScot is typically using human ignorance and the limitations of human technical ability as evidence for Intelligent Design.

I am still wondering why all the predictions made by Gonzalez and Richards in ďThe Privileged PlanetĒ cannot be considered ID predictions.


Um, because the predictions are not testable with any reasonable extension of human technology.

Bishop: I'll fund your efforts, but if after a year or two you haven't demonstrated your point, then that will prove that angels push planets on crystal spheres. Then we'll burn you for heresy.

The prediction by ID that Harvard will fail is a valid one. Thereís no flaw in it. A valid scientific hypothesis is in principle falsifiable. In fact it might not be falsifiable because it isnít false. Harvardís project is a valid attempt to falsify it. The more valiant their attempt the better it supports ID being true. Thus I want to see a heroic, herculean effort of extraordinary proportion put into falsification of ID because Iím confident that no effort will succeed due to the simple fact that you canít falsify something that isnít false.

Every honest NDE pundit should be 100% behind me on this. If they arenít it can only be because they suspect that no amount of effort at finding an undirected means of chemical evolution will succeed. They are in fact afraid of the implications of possible failure.



What the?

How old is this guy again? And did he really take his SAT test when he was 35 years old?

That HAS to be the most bone headed statement from the ID daycare centre yet.

Lets see,
IF testing chemical pathways for abiogenesis fails,  imaginary leaping pink zombies really potentially exist in DT's mind?

Yup, that's a prediction I can live with.

Better get that paper up to scratch DT, I can just make out the Nobel committee on the shimmering horizon, it looks like they are walking on water.

What are you going to title the paper?

ID = X; where X is the unknown unknown.

Templeton Foundation  
Quote
Thus while it is our judgment that the general process of biological evolution is well attested by many lines of research, it is not clear to what extent the process of evolution or the study of the history of life on earth may reveal hints of broader cosmic, perhaps even divine, purpose and intention.

It is therefore possible that, from time to time, the Foundation will support well-designed projects or research that some others may label as ďintelligent design."

...

While the Foundation does not generally support theologically-motivated critiques of evolutionary science, we do fund open and rigorous debate concerning the ďIDĒ position.

Checkiní out the ďwomensí programsĒ at the SBTS site (Ďcause they got womenís studies of a sort, donít cha know):

† †
Quote
Women in this generation need women teachers who are not only committed to the importance of studying God's Word but who are also formally trained to do biblical exposition. Woman-to-woman teaching is the biblical method of choice (Tit. 2:3-5).


Gaaa. In other words, no matter what Kristine would study there (just hypothetically, people) she would in all likelihood be tutored at no extra charge in The Female Hate Stare 101. Because all I have to do is walk into some situations where there are a lot of women (especially a church) to rub other women the wrong way. Donít know how I do it. I get along much better with men; always have. (And that means men of all stripes; Iím a conservative magnet. I dated more conservatives in college than liberals.) Why? Beats me.

I can remember who made the comment here about us all being malajusted at 17 (moi , guilty! I was the biggest dork!;), and some of us are still malajusted misfits :) but I would just die in this environment. People go where they feel wanted and itís a mystery to me how someone would reject an educated fatherís acceptance of evolution and run to this kind of cloister, while at the same time I rejected my working-class fatherís creationism and, without any real intention to do so, ended up a bohemian. When I watched Dembskiís sermon it brought back memories of church that werenít as unpleasant as I expected (I wanted to be accepted by the people in my congregation as much as anybody else), but also reminded me how many hours I sat there knowing the Bible upside down and backwards yet also knowing that I was not one of these people, that I didn't believe this stuff, and had no one else around who was like me. So why am I different? Would anyone at UD say that I was designed that way?

Doubt it.

You may have been right, see, but you still needed to be banned, see. It just had to happen that way because, well, you were right, see. And as for DaveScot's assertion that "All the evidence so far provided indicates that the offer was not widely disseminated and was quickly withdrawn due to political pressure," well, that was "just rhetoric". But don't worry. DaveScot is not afraid, you see. He is not afraid. He is not afraid of the likes of you. Or anything else, see. DaveScot is not afraid.

Here's another quote:

My concern for the moment, however, is only with a certain controversial tone; the tone of a gentleman who remarked to me, in a stoic and almost tragic voice: "I am the Last Darwinian." I do not for a moment suggest that these Darwinians are no longer Darwinians. But if this is how the Darwinians talk while they are still Darwinians, how do you suppose the anti-Darwinians are talking?


Well, you gotta hand it to them: when they are funny, they are really funny. Now we only need some joke about William Dembski saying, "I am the Last Paleyan".

Yep, Kristine.  Women go to colleges like that to get their Mrs.* Degree (as we used to say when I attended Blow Job Bob Jones U.)

They weren't really encouraged to learn much, and most of the ones I knew never bothered to continue once they hooked their man.

They were well versed in setting the table, however.

Out of the four women I actually "dated" (that consists of supervised visitation in the student center and writing love notes through the campus mail) whilst there, none graduated, and none continued more than a semester past their engagement.  (One of those engagements was to me, though it ended badly a few months later.)

*Oh, that's pronounced "Em Ar Ess" just FYI.

You be the judge. I must say, I'm tired of the MF snakes on this MF plane(t)...

So, I think Iíll go float in another dimension with the UD steam angels, like TerryL:

My favorite Chesterton quote: ďThe falsity of religion disproves the existence of God no more than the existence of a forged five pound bank note disproves the existence of the Bank of Scotland.Ē

Ahem. The falsity of Piltdown Man disproves evolution no more than the (all together now!;) existence of a forged five pound bank note disproves the existence of the Bank of Scotland. Which I've never seen by the way. Turn about is fair playÖ

How many snarky evilutionist steam angels can dance in a bead of sweat on WAD's upper lip? Is he hoist by his own petard from heaven by a golden chain or an iron one? If a man makes a statement about intelligent design in the woods of Waco and a Minnesota woman isnít around to hear it, is he still cute?

Hey kids.  Sorry, I was watching the NASA TV update on the water on Mars thing....


Yep.  I was a student at Blow Job U....

for exactly one semester, wherein I apparently asked too many questions and refused to accept the answers I got, and just shut up about it.

I was given a personal, face to face invitation to exit the campus at the end of the semester by Dr. Bob III.

It was the beginning of the end of my fundyism.

Soon after, I got laid.

'nuff said.
