It's the Darwin crowd that lacks the facts in evolution debate

Full story: Asheville Citizen-Times

I would like to respond to the letter 'Recent letter offered no examples of Darwinian disingenuousness,' . He responds to an article with, 'He says evolution is 'so riddled with holes,' yet fails to provide a ...

There's no confirming data for anything there, just a list of dataless assertions which by themselves are worthless. I realize that finding data takes work whereas spewing assertion does not, but rational people want to see confirming data from those lazy enough to try getting by with only the assertions. So get off your lazy butt and provide data.
For which assertion do you want data first?

The statement in question is not an instruction for forming a wash basin. It is a passing reference to the size of the finished basin. There isn't even a hint of using Pi=3 to form something. If there was, I would be all over it like KAB on the Quran 4:11,12.

Marksman, show me where my math is wrong:

C = pi d
C = 300
d = 100
300 = 100 pi
Therefore, pi = 3

Of course I do. They're documented in a demonstrated reliable source, and no physical data has confirmed these things cannot be so.

As to the JW cult you guys DO get a few things right:
- denial of the Trinity
- denial of deity of Christ
- denial of physical resurrection.
You do down hill fast from there, however.
Things you get wrong are legion:
- Mistranslations of many words including YHWH
- revisionist history (including JW history)
- false prophecies
- what happens after death (more the inconsistency than the dogma)
- 144,000.... enough said.
- Whole nonsense about immortal vs. everlasting life (yes, I have read the nonsense, it is guano crazy).
- New World Translation (again enough said).
many, many, many more.

Now you've moved into the realm of openly stupid. The Bible contains references to Assyrian King Sargon. Compare them with archaeological finds, and you'll see how quickly the Bible moves out of the zero evidence column.

In other words, no data, no dice.

If you were good with math you would readily recognize that 3 is Pi rounded to one significant digit.

You better go back and read both again.

The bibles failure to correctly define pi is a major gaff.

But it is easy to rationalize the minor error in the koran.

Weren't Billy Mays, Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Patrick Swayze, Walter Cronkite, Dom DeLuise, Edward Kennedy, Natasha Richardson, Bea Arthur, David Carradine, DJ AM, Steve McNair, and Michael Jackson actual people?

You can see them all on Season 13 Episode 8 of South Park.

So South Park must also be true.

No, not one of the sources of a flood are from a "demonstrated reliable source". The best accounts of the flood (probably and actual localized event) are in records that predate (and disagree with) the bible.

The physical data show that no global flood ever occurred. EVER.

If you can produce some DATA of this flood I will reconsider my statement. Till then the evidence stands. No global flood.

Sorry, I am not TB but I do miss his more active presence here. I may have learned to repeat data that others are unable to respond to from him. It is a potent weapon against ignorance.

This is very poor logic.

You like to make a bang sound like a real gun, but all you got are blanks.

The Koran documents event that were unknown to outside history as well till modern archeology verified the claims.

Does that make the Koran evidence based?

That is not the issue. 3.0 is 100 times less accurate than what school children use in math class. In physics the term is often limited to 3.141592654 (depending on the number of significant digits of the next less accurate term).

In most building projects 3.14159 would be fine. 3.0 is the formula for mud brick huts.

Given Mayim or waters.
So the understanding of the waters being divided into those below and those above with an expanse between them is recognized as valid, and denial of that has been dowsed. There is hope for a successful combining of you and objective comprehensive data-based data-driven thinking after all. Hopefully, you saw where objectively examining the "waters" thesis was going to lead and that is wasn't going to negate the validity of the above.
