1. Is it okay for ID proponents to post personal information of the internet? NO
Do you think that Wes and/or steve would not remove your personal information from the board if someone posted it?
No, I believe they would....that is why I was giving them the warning that someone may be listing personal information about me.
Do you think that the Baylor curators and other officials post their home addresses and phone numbers to the internet? I have not checked into that so I do not know. I would assume that most do not.
Why re you back posting here at AtBC? I believe I answered that on this page or the last page. checking the previous 3 pages, there is no answer from Ftk as regards this question. There are however, many complaints about having to answer questions and the ridiculous expectations of such. –blipey
How does Behe know what is in a group of books without ever having read the books? !!! This question is ridiculous. Obviously, he wouldn't, and I'd have to ask Behe if he was every allowed to go through every book and article one by one and make two separate piles of what he had and had not read. But, I tried desperately to explain in an earlier discussion that just because we have theories about how something *may have* occurred, that does not mean that all the questions have been answered nor should they be regarded as "fact". I’m counting this one as answered because of the first sentence “obviously, he wouldn’t”. That being said, the commentary after that phrase proves that she’ll never be able to answer question 6. perhaps this is why she stopped answering questions. –blipey
6. What is the point of the Behe/unread books discussion?
7. According to ID Theory, how did the immune system develop?
8. What is gained by jettisoning ToE and saying God did it?
9. In the light of a science teacher teaching that the study of beetles is not a scientific effort and possibly that spiders evolved from insects (if evolution were true), how is ID theory driving kids toward science?
10. Why don't IDers pursue RESEARCH GRANTS, from the Templeton Foundation, for example?
11. Are you afraid to examine the sequence evidence for ToE?
11A. Added. Do you understand what sequence evidence is?
12. Where did Albatrossity2 claim that his students were religious freaks?
12A. Added. Where did blipey claim that his nephew's teacher was "a source of evil"?
13. Why don't IDers publish in PCID?
14. Why hasn't PCID been published in over two years?
15. Do you believe that Darwinists have kept PCID from being published?
17. Can ID be called a theory when it hasn't made even one prediction?
18. Yes or no: ID wouldn't benefit from publishing any articles, anywhere.
19. Yes or no: Your children should be taught the historical insights of the Bhagavad Gita?
20. What sort of Waterloo can we look forward to on February 8, 2008? Nebraska banned the electric chair as the sole method of execution. Did anything else happen?
Interesting side note. Just came across this comment back on page 102 where you berate people for not having read the pertinent books. Which begs several more questions I'll put here. Why is reading material important? Do you think it might have been important for Behe to read some books before commenting on them? Have you read the textbook that Albatrossity2 sent you? Have you got that list of peer reviewed articles you've read ready to go? Are you seriously arguing that we should read books and that IDers don't have to?
21. What are IDers doing to garner respect?
22. Given that you believe ID is science because of "design inference", why is ToE not science because all it has is inference?
23. Can any human being know what is contained in a book without having read the book?
24. If everyone died in the Flood, who wrote all the different stories down?
25. What year was the Flood over? 2300 BC, answer provided for Ftk by blipey
26. What year was the height of the Egyptian Empire? 2030 BC, answer provided by blipey
27. What was the population of the world in that year? 30,000,000, answer provided by blipey
28. How did 8 people (6 really) make that many people?
29. Is Dembski a creationist?
30. How would monogamous gays destroy heterosexual marriage?
31. How did Koalas get from Ararat to Australia?
32. Do you believe that the FLOOD is a scientifically tenable idea? yes
33. Are the people who run Baylor Darwin Police?
34. Are those same people Baptist?
35. What does this mean?
36. Given that HIV cannot have evolved (Behe), which of the 8 (6 really) people on the ark were carrying HIV?
37. There are at least 40 distinct STDs. Were they distributed evenly among the passengers on Noah's ark, or was there like one Ultra-skank who had all 40?
38. Do you think that gravity is “just a theory” and therefore should be “taught critically” (to use the ID phrase)?
39. If not, what makes the details we don’t know about gravity different from the details we don’t know about evolution?
40. Do you believe Common Descent = Common Design?
41. Do you believe that Macroevolution = (not observed so did not happen)?
42. Despite the documented evidence, do you believe that macroevolution is based solely on historical inference?
43. Can you define macroevolution (in your own words)?
44. What evidence would confirm this?
45. Did God just make it look like the horse evolved, but in fact tinkered with the design along the way?
46. Is the horse the only thing that evolved, but everything else is designed?
47. Given your statement that the idea of the Geologic Column was introduced by Darwinists after 1860, FtK, were the "periods" and "eras" added after 1860 "to fit the evolutionary theory"?
48. Or, since the early 19th century work by Smith, Cuvier, et al. led to the identification of the Geological Column in the 1820’s, were they (periods and eras) devised by creationists before 1860 to fit the evidence?
49. Why is the Cambrian Explosion a problem for the Theory of Evolution?
50. Did the Cambrian Explosion occur?
51. If yes, can Walt Brown’s Hydroplate Theory still be valid?
And of course a new one:
52. How's the kids' paper on Walt Brown's Grand Canyon coming?
But I get the trick question- there isn't any such thing as one molecule of water. -JoeG
And scientists rarely test theories. -Gary Gaulin
