Consider this thought experiment:
In 100 years, with your advanced quantum computer, you create a simulated world full of sentient, living things. They have no knowledge of you or any record of how they came to be. (Note the lack of anything supernatural in this illustration.)...


ScottAndrews thinks we don't have "any record of how" we "came to be".

Not even the Bible, apparently. I understand him chucking out genetics and the fossil record. After all, per KF and Clive Hayden, we weren't there to see it happen...

Quote
The argument that design requires the supernatural and therefore isn’t scientific really translates to, ‘This possibility seems way to hard to investigate, so we’ll just keep looking over here instead.’


According to his own words in his same post above, we can't even consider non-supernatural explanations, because we don't have any evidence about the past.

Of course - its not possible to see idcurious's posts as for some reason all of them beyond post 230 seem to have vanished.  And the funny thing is, Clive just keeps on replying to him a day later, even though he must know for sure that he has been banned at that point.  Which once again shows up the completely underhanded and hypocritical nature of UD.

I don't think they are being hypocritical at all.

That would assume they knew they were in the wrong.

Which they don't.

I have this recurring fantasy that she actually knows very little at all about mathematics but is, in reality, a post-grad psych research student working on her doctoral thesis.  I'd say there was more than enough there to fill a book.

Thought you all might be interested in this video on whether or not mutations are random. It covers both why we originally thought mutations were random plus more current information which shows that the random mutation idea is not the whole picture.

Non-Physical Causation and Science - The Problem
•Science prefers problems for which the solutions are determinable and the
mechanisms are knowable (facilitates knowledge-building)
•Non-Physical Causation is speci?cally about situations where the solutions are
not necessarily determinable, and there is no particular mechanism
•Therefore, how do you formulate non-physical causes in order to aid
knowledge-building without determinism


The "Blyth Institute" also has some techincal papers!

Bartlett, Jonathan.  2010.  "Developing an Approach to Non-Physical Cognitive Causation in a Creation Perspective"  Occasional Papers of the BSG 17:3. (Poster, Slides)

http://www.blythinstitute.org/site/sections/11

Johnny has made his 990
available and from it we can find the address of this obviously prestigious "Institute"



What a surprise.

I'm waiting for the IRS to publish the Nonfilers list - about 320,000 charitable organizations that will lose their status due to not filing income tax returns. I'm hoping to see David Abel's Origin of Life Foundation, this institute and of course the DI on the list. Is UD itself a 501 3c?

Couple of other funny things about that "Institute".



A) Salvador Cordova? Whatever you are getting from him for an hour a week, trust me, it's not worth the nothing you are paying him.

B) Local high-school classes? Recent biological discoveries? Sounds like it could be very interesting indeed.

icdurious was vanished after asking KF "Would it be cruel to compare you to a hypocritical windbag?". As KF seems to have been keeping idc alive, that was unwise. It's true though.

Uncommon Descent is apologetics. It exists to give comfort to believers that there is progress being made with "Intelligent Design". Much of it isn't actually meant to be read (hence Denyse, KF, etc.). Behe is a scientist who supports common descent. No wonder they ignore him.

Look at the effort UDders put into saying we can't know anything about the past. Their redefining of science isn't about finding positive ways to "prove" design, but rather to make sure that no evidence could possibly exist to support evolution in nature.

Pick any Pro-IDder you like. You'll find them saying something really, really stupid... But there they are, the all-science-so-far vanguard for creationists everywhere.

I predict that a programming language and Operative System will be found in DNA, surely in the form of “machine code”, so it will have to be reverse-engineered to get the source code. That will prove Intelligent Design once and for all and also we will have a clue of the designers’ language (i.e, what “words” they use for such commands as GOTO, WHILE, FOR, END, etc., and, of course, the LABEL and comment lines!). I hope to be alive by then.

The phenomenon of stasis is something Darwinists and neo-Darwinists have struggled with. Their theory predicts gradualism, but gradualism is not what the fossil record delivers. Darwinists have sought to evade the evidence by appealing to an impoverished fossil record, but we have reached the stage where this retort must be interpreted as a form of denialism.


Jeez, it's like Stephen Jay Gould never existed to the IDiots.

Trough a comment on the Beckwith post at PT I've learned that Behe is still posting at UD. Unfortunately, they didn't add the viewer counter to his pages and he doesn't allow comments comments. Since I couldn't find any link to his blog on the first two AtBC topic title pages and a search for "Behe" in "posts and or all topic titles" of all open forums didn't find any recent comment I got the impression that he is currently completely ignored. Even those UD News clowns don't link to his posts.

I saw that and wondered whether Behe himself posted to Pandas Thumb as he found being ignored was worse than having your ideas reamed

He had effectively expelled me, and wasn't honest enough to say it outright.

I also doubt that Clive was honest about what irritated him. I commented primarily on the psychology of "true believers" like him who would be crushed if their authority figures admitted to fallibility.

It's hilarious that UD constantly pushes the fallibility of science, but cannot admit that an ID theorist ran into a dead end.

Of course - its not possible to see idcurious's posts as for some reason all of them beyond post 230 seem to have vanished.  And the funny thing is, Clive just keeps on replying to him a day later, even though he must know for sure that he has been banned at that point.  Which once again shows up the completely underhanded and hypocritical nature of UD.

This is continued fallout from their Mathgrrl debacle.  The 'great experiment' of allowing outside dissenting views from scientifically literate folks was such an unmitigated disaster for the IDiots that they have to revert to the old ways.  That's why Barry and Clive have been on a banning rampage.  Interacting with the real world is just too scary for them.

Speaking of Mathgrrl - we haven't seen any new posts lately, so she may be with the silently banned too.

I have this recurring fantasy that she actually knows very little at all about mathematics but is, in reality, a post-grad psych research student working on her doctoral thesis.  I'd say there was more than enough there to fill a book.

Actually, she appeared here and here earlier today.

Unrelated note: Since I have made no progress on the JoeBot 5000 prototype: 3000 posts, bitches!

We are all jumping for joy over your 3000th post!

PaV: I suppose for me to be pried away from what I do to focus long and hard on that particular problem would take, quite honestly, hundreds of thousands of dollars to begin to pique my interest.

I'm sure moderation is on its way, PaV.   ???

What is stupidity of the highest order? Or is that a stupid question?

PaV will never have a girlfriend!

Palmela Handerson.

I am given to understand that she has five lovely daughters.

And if you sit on her for a while it feels like someone else is doing it.

Well, that's what Carlson told me.
