|Wha-? Steve Fuller's Dissy over Descy |
|The theme of descent and dissent, which has been a theme on this blog and in my book UNCOMMON DISSENT: INTELLECTUALS WHO FIND DARWINISM UNCONVINCING, has been picked up by Steve Fuller in his new book DISSENT OVER DESCENT: EVOLUTION’S 500-YEAR WAR ON INTELLIGENT DESIGN. |
Evolution's 500-year war on intelligent design?
Darwin's 500th coming up? WAD, I thought you said that evolution started with those ancient Greek gawds killing each other and transforming and crap.
Boy am I confused. How does it go again: there's PI in the sky (celestial spheres) when I die. Okay-doke. *Help me, I need a study break*
By golly, I thought that ID was, ya know, SCIENCE and all, and that the reason why it, uh, doesn't have any peer-reviewed results is, um, because it's, er, so NEW, and all . . . . . .
I wish these morons would at least TRY to keep their #### story straight . . . . .
Oops! I should get my story straight myself. I owe WmAd an apology, I was wrong. I misquoted wMAD. It wasn't the Greek gods making war that he mentioned, it was the Babylonian gods making, um, er...
|If you look at the Babylonian account, it's called the Enuma Elish, and what you have [enema elish??] are waters, sweet waters and salt waters, Tiamat and Apsu - they mingle, okay, and the mingle connotes some sort of sexual union, and out of that emerged one set of gods, and then there's another set of gods, and another, and then finally you get Marduk. And it's in this process of generations, the gods are begetting gods...|
His point being that evolution is somehow like creation myths like this. Oooh, this kind of stuff can rile a girl up.
My point being, if I am salt water, what is wMAD? 'Cause he says that the naturalist view is "thin on the consumation part." Heh, I have news for him.
*Waits for shocked Marpuke from Arden*
'Marpuke'? ? ?
|Namely, you could make the argument for Darwinism. Why do you accept it as valid science? What evidence convinces you? We have yet to see anyone here who can defend it.|
Jerry is the perfect ID consumer. Bill and Dave ban all dissent or contradictory statements from UD to create the illusion that there is complete unanimity on ID, and that scientists are afraid to challenge them. Jerry seems to believe this completely. Bill could tell him to roll over and beg and he'd oblige.
