I think News is entering her dotage.  Can anybody even figure out what she's saying here?  It's about finding 43 million year soft tissue in a Bird fossil.    
Quote
If analyzable soft tissue keeps turning up, paleontology will become a feeder field for molecular biology, which means that it can no longer be the preserve of Darwin’s Fossils, propping up their belief systems, secure in the fact that very few other people had or could get much evidence for anything else.

As near as I can make out, it's something like "Darwin bad!  Fossils no good!"

Re "Darwin’s Fossils" ???

Darwin's conclusions weren't based on fossils, IIRC. He was comparing current species from different places.

The argument they have used in the past was that if soft tissues were found, then we must be wrong about the fossilization process. If we are wrong about the fossilization process then we must be wrong about how we have interpreted the fossil record.

At least KF uses the same line.

ETA: It is obviously not embarrassing for him to use the line above a post which is referring to Breitbart News

rvb8 starts a reply with this line: "News, let a little reality in please, this post is slightly less well researched than an AIG science piece."

KF replies with just about every trope and cliche in his inventory:      
Quote
RVB8, your habit of using invidious comparisons to Creationists not present to defend themselves is doubly offensive. First, the invidious comparisons, which send a not so subtle message of pushing ID into a boat in which even the same Creationists recognise it does not belong — yet another case of your speaking in insistent defiance of regard for truth you know or should know (and for correction). Second, it is an utter disgrace to do drive-by smears of those not present to defend themselves, regardless of how you may view them. I suggest that it is high time that you stop such behaviour, especially as it is part of the toxic trifecta of fallacies: red herrings led away to strawman caricatures soaked in ad hominems, to set them alight to cloud, confuse, poison and polarise the atmosphere for discussion. In the case of Wikipedia, it is a clear case of radical relativism at work on the domain of knowledge and reveals that the attitude might and manipulation make ‘truth,’ ‘right,’ ‘rights,’ ‘knowledge,’ etc is an open invitation to domineering, amoral, nihilist factions who then entrench themselves and ruthlessly oppress those they target; through agit prop tactics and the underlying cultural marxist agenda to wreck our civilisation. It is a capital public manifestation of the failure and bankruptcy of evolutionary materialistic scientism and its fellow travellers. KF

Did he miss anything?  I don't see "mafia ninja thugs attempting to pollute my bodily fluids" in there.  Anything else?

I have a theory, which is mine, that if KF ever succeeds in getting every one of his cliches into a single reply, ID will implode with a force that will suck all of Intelligent Design into a chaotic self-referential maelstrom of incredulity, indignation, poor reasoning and impotent self-righteousness that would actually be little different from it's condition today.  So let 'er blow, I guess.

P.S. Of course, ba77 and News, in their 1997 paper on quantum yeast, also proved that in addition to a critical cliche mass, a reply must also be at least fifteen pages long in order to successfully implode.

If anyone reading this happens to be on the island of Montserrat could you swing by KF's and check the middle of his back for a pull string?

The ol' friendly pat on the back ruse should do the trick.

Maybe leave behind some sort of evo-mat agitprop device.

Well, if that probability is raised to a power around a million, then you get a probability somewhere around a half.

If that probability is per individual, well, bacteria have a lot of individuals. (i.e., we're outnumbered, out-massed, and outgunned by them. )

I say we use the ID approach for all future scientific investigations.

Let’s call it the, “Don’t know, can’t know.”, approach.

This approach will identify all of the irreducibly complex systems in nature, and ignore them.

By this approach we will prove that the evolved curiosity of humanity should be reigned in by superstition, and faith.

I’m not sure if this will advance humanity’s understanding of the natural world, but it will certainly be inoffencive, to the credulous, at least.
