    Nice view bar.

    Tonight it’s broiled lemon talipia with parsley flakes, seasoned white rice with sauteed string beans with roasted pecan and from scratch tatar sauce. Yum.

    Over at 1.0 (not thread worthy)

    Queeg says:

    “On the pro-science side, we had distinguished scientists, researchers, and textbook authors. On the anti-evolution, pro-Dark Ages side, we had ministers, beauty queens, and Discovery Institute shill Casey Luskin.

    It’s sad and infuriating that in so many states, the Republican Party is now dominated by fanatics who want to force their fundamentalist religious views on everyone’s children, and ruin science education in America.”

    “I’m really not sorry to see the phrase “War on Terror” being retired by the Pentagon; it’s always seemed like a complete misnomer. You don’t fight a war against a tactic, you fight against people with an ideology. This battle would have been much better described as the “War on Militant Islam,” but our government is too hobbled by political correctness to ever be that direct and truthful.”

    “The corrupt, obscenely wealthy rulers of Saudi Arabia continue playing Wahhabi bait-and-switch, promising reforms and delivering only more of the same Dark Agesmisogyny.”

    Charles Darwin’s Illegitimate Brainchild.

    History has bestowed the dubious credit for the idea of evolution by natural selection on Charles Darwin. Apart from the fact that selection itself, while a real phenomenon, is utterly impotent to provide the extra information necessary to produce new traits, most, if not all, of the major ideas attributed to Darwin had previously been discussed in print by others. Not only was this ‘brainchild’ of Darwin’s not really his, but it also had many fathers!

    Do the Darwin Dance.

    #24, n2l-

    Just because Darwin drew upon older theories, doesn’t make it any less true.

    Also, a contemporary scholar of Darwin’s published much the same theory a year earlier, IIRC

    I forgot about her, she is hot. And I like Ozzy also.

    I cant recall where I read it, but someone was arguing against natural selection. Explaining that when random chance is added to this equation, natural selection is pretty invalid.
    Survival of the fittest, yet only those that survive are deem fittest.
    It sounded reasonable to me.

    One of the Banned,
    Did you read the article?
    He was scolded, repeatedly, for not giving credit for others work, and in some cases not even then.
    Even if he did build on others work, there are huge gaps in their collective findings.

  32. One of the Banned
    33 | March 25, 2009 8:00 pm

    I did read the article.

    I’ve heard this argument before, from much more reputable sources than a ‘Creation Ministries’ article.

    As to the ‘gaps in their collective findings’ argument, evolution is still more provable than creationism.

    And neither of us will know who is right until we die, unless science takes a big leap forward in the meantime.

    Okay, this is getting ridiculous:

    Charles is now going after Republicans who want Obama to fail, thus buying into the media ploy to make the GOP sound like an America-Hating group.

    Good job, Charles. Way to think independently.

    I know, it’s a dream of mine that will never be fulfilled. But it would be nice if Rush made Charles even more insignificant than he is now (assuming that it is not physically impossible for Charles to get any lower for more blog readers).

    Memo to certain commenters: Comparing “evolution” with “creationism” does not make you look smart.

    The -ism suffix denotes a doctrine. Creationism is a doctrine. Evolution is a process. You cannot really compare a doctrine directly against a process, only indirectly in how the doctrine may address the process. In most cases this bit of masturbatory semantic foolery is sloppy arguing.

    Evolutionism and Creationism: two doctrines. Evolution and Creation: two processes. Try not to conflate the two comparisons and you will seem a good bit smarter.

    Wow, who knew that “evolution” was not a doctrine. Nothing like looking smart while telling others they are not.

    Here let me help you.


    2 a : something that is taught b : a principle or position or the body of principles in a branch of knowledge or system of belief : DOGMA c : a principle of law established through past decisions d : a statement of fundamental government policy especially in international relations e : a military principle or set of strategies

    How you can exclude “evolution” from that definition only the “smart” people know I guess.

    Its amazing the deformations some “evolutionist” try to perform, in order to stop criticism of their ideas.

    Is “ist” something special I should know about, I don’t want to appear stupid now.

  44. 45 | March 25, 2009 10:25 pm

    I am saying that habitually referring to evolution and creationism as such usually is a deliberate use of those words. What I am suggesting is that it is an intentionally cretinous word play to consistently use evolution to refer to the doctrine of evolutionism and conflate it with scientifically observed processes, in order to imagine it as superior to creationism. That is, pretending evolutionism is not an -ism is somehow expected to earn some cheap points from the start. Anyone who wants to make that argument that evolutionism is a better perspective, fine. I just want to point out that the stupid word games are not necessarily impressing everyone.

    I THINK George is saying that accepting evolution, i.e., “the scientifically observed process,” is not the same thing as being an ideological “evolutionist,” or a metaphysical Darwinist, a believer in pure materialism and chance, as opposed to creation………which, for example, would make me an accepter of evolution, but NOT an evolutionist…..or actually an accepter of evolution and a creationist.
    And that people like CJ deliberately muddy the terms.
    But I’m getting confused. It’s late here.(Just because I have insomnia doesn’t mean my brain is still awake!)

    Funny thing:
    I got this message on facebook the other day

    Of all the weird things people can remember about elementary school. The one thing I remembered about you was when we had assigned seating in Mrs. Etchies class. Before you would sit down, you’d fart right in my face and then I’d punch you really hard in the arm or stomach. Nice seeing you on facebook. hahaha

    Damn my reputation precedes me. I had no idea I was doing that in elementary school, I thought I didn’t do that until later in life.
