Ag, ping to number 4 esp.
DLR: you are gonna love this one...
LJ: excellent moral absolutes editorial for your review this morning...
Dumbest analysis I've seen yet.
Agreed! Those who doubt that a Mastermind is at work have serious perception problems.
Science is not a democracy.
Oh, and please don't assume that all social conservatives believe that evolution requires 'magic' to operate.
"Science is not a democracy."
I agree; it has the stench of totalitarianism all over it.
Excellent read...thanks for posting...what's also interesting is how the whole ID/Darwin argument impacts on the issue of abortion, as it pertains to the seminal question of when life begins...It is pure science, advantages in technology, like 3D sonograms, pushing back the old left "dogmas" ( intentional use of the word) about a ball of protoplams...that are making the case for the idea that life is indeed present at the moment of conception.
Nothing scientific about it either.
Is that ID's main appeal? Simplicity?
"Oh, and please don't assume that all social conservatives believe that evolution requires 'magic' to operate."
- Yeah, and the Big Bang just exploded from nothing.
Please explain what the Big Bang theory has to do with the TOE?
Very good article.
I'm just happy to get this comment in before the mayhem that will surely ensue!
You are quite welcome...
Where did the intelligent designer come from (besides the imagination of Creationists)?
"Is that ID's main appeal? Simplicity?"
Perhaps you will object if I refer you to Occam's Razor?
In other words Intelligent Design will win because nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.
Your are welcome.
"I'm just happy to get this comment in before the mayhem that will surely ensue!"
I doubt there will be much ... the die-hard darwinists have begun to believe boycotting articles like these helps their cause.
But who knows? I have noticed many of them are terribly afflicted w/ boredom.
LOL! That was funny. (And thus, it follows that the FIRST people who would be delighted w/ this would be the profit mongers, the Randians ... but somehow, in this case, it is just not so....that is funny, funny strange, too.)
Not at all.
(Hint: the addition of the 'mystery designer' runs contrary to Occam's razor)
intelligent design people! They're just buck-toothed Bible-pushing nincompoops with community-college degrees who're trying to sell a gussied-up creationism to a cretinous public! No need to address their concerns or respond to their arguments. They are Not Science. They are poopy-heads."
There. I just saved you the trouble of reading 90% of the responses to the ID position.
You question appeal. EITHER
I can believe in a message from an all powerful being that says "Trust me, believe me and have eternal life knowing that I love you."
I can embrace
"You are ignorant and contemptibly so. But you can get a little respect from us by acknowledging that your central beliefs are fairy tales and then be a real macho man like us and deal with the fact that oblivion is your only destiny."
There was this guy a long time ago that took some really terrible punishment on my behalf. He did it despite knowing that I would hate him for years. I'll stick with Him, thanks.
