Heh, over at UD in a discussion where ET has bought up the subject of beaver dams, DerekDiMarco gives us this gem:

The Statue of Liberty was closed on September 11, 2001. It reopened to visitors in August of 2004. In July of 2004 I was given a personal, private tour of the Lady by a Colonel of the NY State Troopers. I got to look out at the hundreds of people looking up and wishing they were me that day.

And then there was that meeting with the top General of the Egyptian Army to discuss secure communications from their bases to their satellite. Or going deep inside Saudi Navy headquarters to install encryption on their land to sea missile communications. Or working with Ericsson in Norway on secure comms for the Patriot missile system deployed in the Mideast. Or perhaps those two weeks in Kuwait and Iraq, right there, in the triangle, helping save lives. Don’t get me started on the two tours to Colombia.

I lose track.

There is actually a solid biology literature on beaver dams. I also like the evolutionary literature on spider webs. I haven't visited it recently.

Three quick points:

To Marfin, who writes, “Please explain in detail how the ability to drive a car is not a product of evolution”:

Huh? Our physical abilities to perceive and coordinate our bodies as we do evolved thousands of years ago, but driving a car was not part of the environment which helped select for those skills. Driving a car is a “derived skill”, so to speak: we put to use the skills that had evolved much earlier and have applied them to situations that were not at all present at that time.

The general point, as I made above, is that not everything that humans do were “selected for”: once we became able to use such things as language, abstract thinking, and tools, and became more flexibly dependent on learning and socially communicated knowledge, all of which were in part “selected for”, we’ve been able to expand beyond purely physical evolutionary processes and develop large amounts of knowledge and skills.

To ba: I am not a “Darwinist” and I’m not talking about how such things as language evolved. But I accept the conclusion that there has been a progression of creatures over the last some hundreds of thousands of years that slowly acquired what we now consider fully human capabilities.

About (but not to) Barry: all he can do in response to my posts is claim “hand waving” and “special pleading” without any further explanation, so I’ll not bother to expect any more from him.

Barry, you’re hopeless. Your statement following “your argument amounted to” is just a distorted, inaccurate description of what I said. I can’t discuss things with people who can’t do better than that.

Joke Gallien the homophobic bigot rears his ugly head.

ET November 17, 2019 at 10:12 am

Oh my- Ed must be in desperation mode. People of the same sex cannot procreate. That is the OBJECTIVE reason to disallow same-sex marriages. That is a biological fact that Ed ignores as if his willful ignorance is an argument.


So post-menopausal women can't marry, and infertile couples can't marry.  Thanks Joke for invalidating 10% of all marriages across the country.  BTW in the U.S. in 2019 approx. 36% of married women aged 20-45 don't have children, mostly by choice.   According to Joke their marriages must be invalid too.

What an idiot.

The fact that Ed George himself cannot live his life as if morality were REALLY illusory and subjective, as he believes, is proof that his belief is delusional.

I have no idea what you are saying. And I’m sure that your following 1000+ words don’t clarify the issue.

All I want to know is if you think that the measure of the greatness of a nation is how it treats its weakest groups? A simple yes or no will do.

I have just received an email from Hazel. Yes, that Hazel. (Her name is actually Hazel) She has decided that arguing with the folks at UD is a waste of her time. She wishes to say she appreciates the AtBC folks.

We appreciate you too, Hazel!

ET

Ed George is not just anyone. Ed George has lied. Ed George has quote-mined. And All Ed can do is respond like a child.


Sorry, but he is not the one looking like a child.

Quote
Context, Reaper. You have to consider the trash that I am responding to. Or perhaps you can’t because you have a bias issue.


No I don’t. Nobody else here responds in the childish way that you do. That reflects more on you than EG, Hazel and others. And not in a positive way. But you already know this.

Quote
They understand the trash that I am responding to. YOU, on the other hand, seem to have an issue present a cogent argument. You don’t seem to have the ability to follow along.


Why do you find it necessary to respond in an insulting way to everyone who disagrees with you? Even the people from the ID side notice this. The only conclusion I can draw is that they view you as the crazy, intolerant, racist, homophobic uncle who is incapable of filtering his comments.

Quote
Coming from a laughing stock, who has yet to add anything beyond its clueless commentary, I am sure that no one cares what you have to say.


Perhaps. But I have faith that people here see you for what you are. The fact that very few stick up for you suggests that I am correct.

Looks like the DI is in financial trouble.  John West himself has a post on EN&V begging for money so they can continue the fight against evil Darwinism.   The EN&V home page now has a pop-up of Ann Gauger begging for donations.  

Douglas Axe already bailed from the sinking ship and took a job at Biola.  I expect more cost saving measures soon.   2020 doesn't look to be a very good year for the DI's anti-science circus.  :)

How many “Senior Fellows” do they still have trying to share the money from the rubes the donations from the faithful?
