I am terrible with some of the acronyms used by my more learned colleagues on here. In an effort to facilitate communication for those of us that are less well versed in the current acronyms I thought I would start this thread. I have assembled the following brief list to kick things off. If you have one to add, feel free. Some of these are not exclusive to the creation/evolution debate.

I hope this is of some use to others.

Creation/evolution acronyms
CSI = complex specified information
DI = Discovery Institute
EAC = Evil Atheist Conspiracy
ERV = endogenous retrovirus
FARM = fish to amphibian to reptile to mammal (and bird)
FSM = Flying Spaghetti Monster
GotG = God of the Gaps
IC = irreducible complexity
ID = intelligent design
IMHO (also IMO,IMNSHO)= In my humble opinion
NCSE = National Center for Science Education
NS = natural selection
OEC = Old Earth Creationism
SLoT = Second Law of Thermodynamics
RM = random mutation
YEC = Young Earth Creationism
ROFLMFAO (and variants)= Standard response to God Did It With Magic or intelligent design is science.

Some make me wonder what thread i missed!

Like FARM and CSI

Any information evo's give on any species here must be considered CSI by crea's.....
These are also not understood:
Fundies say the darndest things. FSTDT Variation 'write', though the website has the former name.
RTT Read The Thread/Topic. And variations. RTFT or RTP Read The Post.

Are you excluding physics?
And the entire list of HTLM codes for minus &#745:, alpha 945, beta946, gamma947, eta948 a.s.o.
Or the one for either a minute (as i grades, minutes ', seconds ") or in written DNA code f.i. H', it follows closely and i forgot the &#...;.
