UD has been boring as shit lately so I was perusing old stuff, like this Barry excerpt from 2008:

Quote
We live in exciting times.  The Darwinist/materialist hegemony over our culture has definitely peaked, and we are privileged to watch the initial tremors that are shaking the Darwinist house of cards.  These are only the beginning of woes for St. Charles’ disciples, and I look forward to one day watching the entire rotten edifice come crashing down.  I am persuaded that just as when the Soviet Union went seemingly overnight from “menacing colossus astride the globe” to “non-existent,” the final crash of the House of Darwin will happen with astonishing suddenness.  You can be sure that we at UD will be there not only reporting on events, but also lending our intellectual pry bars to the effort.

Best regards to all,

Barry Arrington

And Brian, my remark about “parochial” was addressed to kf:

I knew that. I was just being a dick. I apologize.

But i agree that there are some broad stroke ideas of beauty that most of us would agree on. But the bigger question is if our anscestors would agree with us. In previous ages pasty white skin was the ideal. And women who were more “pudgy”? And this is just European norms. I’m sure that African ideals of beauty, and Indian, East Indian, Australian aborigiginal, etc were completely different than our modern ideal.

I am hoping that late middle age, beer bellied men become the epitome of male beauty. I won’t hold my breath. (ET, feel free to hold your breath).

Yes, you read that correctly, post #14 in his First Principles series involves 'preliminary thoughts' :-)

Some of the issues …. where did the penta sugar backbone come from? The sugar carbohydrates to assemble the backbone …where did these sugars originate ? Were they the product of photosynthesis? (obviously not !) And RNA being even less stable than DNA …were there repair mechanisms and if not then what would be the consequences. And finally how would RNA be replicated? Magic I guess !!

While Joe's still a regular, I don't think maximum stupidity is going to change.  But average stupidity could still go up.

The Stanford encyclopedia of philosophy does a good job of explaining the basics of why fine-tuning arguments are garbage. There is no way to determine any probability range of any constant or law of physics. Therefore it's impossible to know if this set of parameters is incredibly improbable, incredibly probable, or anything in between.

there are numerous other fatal problems with the idea of fine-tuning, but that basic one will suffice. There's no benefit to shooting someone who's already been decapitated.

Too many good physicists are bad amateur philosophers.

Created the moon with the just-right diameter and the just-right distance relative to the earth so that, at the narrow epoch in solar-system history when human life would be possible, humans on earth would witness perfect solar eclipses, which would help them make important discoveries about the solar system and universe.

What utter BS.  I'm 71 years old and I had to drive 600 miles round trip to see one solar eclipse.  But in my lifetime I've seen a half dozen partial eclipses from my back yard.  If the moon was bigger then its supposedly "fine tuned" diameter or a little closer than its "fine tuned" distance, every one of them would have been a total eclipse.  We'd have seen the sun's corona, the background stars and every thing else we'd see in any other total eclipse.

What a bunch of ID BS!

What happens to the "fine-tuning" argument for the Moon's position when it **inevitably** moves further away from the Earth (because that is what happens in mutually orbiting, gravitationally bound pairs of objects).

The ID argument can only be made at this particular moment in the history of the solar system. I guess the argument is one form of fine-tuning, albeit a cretinous one.

The scientific method:
1. Observe something.
2. Formulate a hypothesis.
3. Devise a test.
4. If the test fails, go to #2.
5. If the test passes and is confirmed, the hypothesis might be promoted to a theory and used to prove other hypotheses. And it might not.


Since the multiverse has not been observed, it is not scientific. It is fiction.


I'm so glad the creationists are around, to explain the scientific method to us. What would we do without them? :D

The general theory of relativity predicted black holes in 1915. The first observational evidence of a black hole didn't happen until 1971. According to this dumbass, black holes must have been unscientific fiction for that 56 years.

Stoichiometry provided good indirect evidence for the existence of atoms back in the 1700s. From that time, especially in the 1800's on, chemists used the idea of discrete atoms to advance the science of chemistry.

Despite the fact that atoms weren't "observed" until arguably the early 1980's. And one could argue they can't be directly observed at all.

So I guess dumbAZ would say chemists were just playing with fictions for 200 years.

The general theory of relativity predicted black holes in 1915.

Arguably, black holes were predicted back in the latter part of the 18th Century. Once you realize that light has a finite speed, it makes sense to think that there might be an object whose escape velocity is greater than light speed—and LaPlace did think so. From his Le Système du Monde: "[It] is therefore possible that the largest luminous bodies in the universe may, through this cause, be invisible."

Laplace's paper is included as appendix A of Hawking's "The large scale structure of space-time".

Stoichiometry provided good indirect evidence for the existence of atoms back in the 1700s. From that time, especially in the 1800's on, chemists used the idea of discrete atoms to advance the science of chemistry.

Despite the fact that atoms weren't "observed" until arguably the early 1980's. And one could argue they can't be directly observed at all.

It's elementary!

There are currently no bills in the US to push ID into public schools. KF and MathGuy are over at UD just babbling about whether math exist in some kind of platonic sense. Denyse's four daily paid posts are bordering on random.

Creationism barely has a pulse at the moment.

Creationism? Not so sure. Pence has a pulse, I think. Betsy de Vos too. They just don't need ID as a fig-leaf anymore.

just a few years ago there would be multiple school boards trying multiple tactics to get creationism in the public schools. I've heard almost nothing on that front in the last year or so. A few cases with individual teachers is about it.
