I'd love to lock BatShit in a room with a textbook on quantum (like griffiths) and a textbook on General Relativity (like thorne) and he can come out when he's successfully solved a single problem in either one.

I think back to Kitzmiller v. Dover, 13 years ago.
I think the trial and results would be quite a lot different now.

If they are ever considering a new site banner here’s a suggestion:

Uncommon Descent - Celebrating the Triumph of Hope over Experience for over Thirteen Years.

The problem is that the internet has been taken over by trolls who are not very intelligent, well informed nor ethically or intellectually honest. How can you reason with such people? I can’t, which is why I engage them as little as possible. That’s not civility; that’s giving in and giving up because of frustration.


That's why I don't engage at UD.

…you can name two new followers and producing papers (in a hosue-journal…) at the rate you’d expect for a PhD student. And you think things ahve got better in that time?

The DI has a list of scientists. More than two. I hadn’t checked it in a long time – includes scientists now from 14 countries which is a dozen more than 10 years ago.

Peer reviewed papers – the quantity has increased. I believe at Dover it was claimed that there were none.

At the time of Dover Dembski was talking evolutionary simply not existing in 10 years.

I think he was proven right about that.

I just got back from a conference with more than a thousand evolutionary biologists. There will probably be more than 2000 at another meeting this month.  Pretty good turn out for a field of study that no longer exists, I would have thought?

2) Batshitcrazy77, who spends every evening masturbating to ‘small breasted femboys’ on pornhub.
3) William J. Murray, who would masturbate if it weren’t objectively wrong, except on Tuesday and Thursday, when it is subjectively okeedokee. And, if it is not observed, it is not real.
4) ET, a failed toaster repairman fired from his previous job for using company computers to call people, ass munching faggots.

Correction.  Joke Gallien (ET) was fired for using his work computer to make threats of physical violence against other C/E discussion participants.  His violent threats were reported to his company and they decided they were better off without a raging psychopathic asshole in their employ.

I suppose everyone knows that as soon as The Shrub pushed the chads back into the Florida ballots he banned the use of the term "Global Warming" by Government agencies before he found an excuse to steal Iraq's oil.
President bone spurs has tried to do the same with "Climate Change".

Whilst reading through Mapou's shitty little blog, that would that require roughly zero indexing and less than five minutes to mirror with the right application, I just had an epiphany. Clearly NicholasMarks is the love child of Mapou and Batty77.

Nicholas has discovered that the bible is indeed a science book that explains everything you need to know about physics and that Satan would rather you didn't know that.

 
Quote
Your style reminds me of someone else Stranger. No hard feelings but he refused to grasp difficult scientific points like the one that if Jesus attracted millions of supporters then his science is repeatable if we use his data points and I have proven to myself, at least, that it still works in the dimension of resurrection, repair and everlasting life because attaching ourselves to his righteous science and God's indestructible energy does just that...regardless of who says otherwise.


 
Quote
So...let's explore what you find so offensive Stranger...that I say that there is an invisible, superabundant, indestructible, dynamic energy behind the existence of the universe. That it is owned by Almighty God...in fact it is God and from it, all science, all stars and all life came into being. Now that is what the Holy Bible tells us as well and Jesus taught us how to harness it righteously...now where do I discredit Jesus or his father and where do I not offer great hope by revealing a science that Satan's henchmen would rather we didn't have?.


Quote
Wherever a group of people gather under one banner it is the same electric evidence at work. Often they seek security from hostile forces...This is the same in Christianity and Judaism. It is the science that underpins this emotional gathering, that you say doesn't exist, that I find intriguing. You see, it always works in one of two ways...either it is used to create oppression as Satan and his henchmen do, else it is used righteously as Almighty God and Jesus Christ do...and the force that is at work, in every case, is our inner electric/nervous/spiritual energy...and warning you of the terrible problems facing us today because of our abstinence from this knowledge isn't intimidation...it is loving kindness...and Jesus Christ knows all about it because his crucifixion oscillated from his stake like a vibrating transmitter which will never stop vibrating because the science behind his teaching will never stop...which brings us neatly to his resurrection...your resurrection....my resurrection...and the resurrection of all souls who will have to face God's Judgement...but if you interpret this as intimidation then, I'm afraid, your attitude is all wrong.

Oh, we now have more comments. From Denyse:

Funny you should bring this up just now, kairosfocus. Last night, I ran into trouble at Facebook again, with the time-consuming accusation that I am a robot.

I post links to consenting ID-related discussion sites at Facebook. Every so often, the accusation mechanically surfaces, essentially preventing me from posting links that are usually rewarded by Likes and discussion.

At best, the time spent addressing the no-robot tests cuts into the time I have to accumulate news of interest. I have complained but in vain.

Facebook needs competitors. It is as simple as that.

I think she has just admitted to failing the Turing test.

The ID issue vs Digital Empire/Cartel concerns: information utilities/ “superhighway” vs shadow-censoring, de-platforming information gatekeepers

Bonus question: guess the first (and so far only) commenter.

Funny you should bring this up just now, kairosfocus. Last night, I ran into trouble at Facebook again, with the time-consuming accusation that I am a robot.

I post links to consenting ID-related discussion sites at Facebook. Every so often, the accusation mechanically surfaces, essentially preventing me from posting links that are usually rewarded by Likes and discussion.

At best, the time spent addressing the no-robot tests cuts into the time I have to accumulate news of interest. I have complained but in vain.

Facebook needs competitors. It is as simple as that.

For kf, "interference with my web presence" means breaking the top secret code of his identity.  Never mind that he includes a decoder ring by linking to his blog every time he posts.

The real difficulty with secret identities on the internet is that there are no virtual phone booths.
