If you're going to keep yammering about SCPID, I think it was.

Yup, but not a thing worth saying - just following your lead. As the axiom goes about imitation, you may consider it flattery... at least in your "real" world.

how many ways and in what ways has science tested for a god, any god? does science even know how to test for a god? when you answer those three little simple questions we will go from there.

Systems are important and deserving to be regarded as the actual movers and changers of life on Earth. Systems are not just imagined, they are occurring everywhere in fact and it is true that they exist. Now SCPID is a simple explanation about how systems occur and work, and this theory is genuine and not merely ostensible.

.
Firstly if he believed he was a wizard as a Jew he would not follow him, but if he thought he was the Messiah, then he may have been a secret convert as many Jews are. But then again you would say that because of this he wrote what he did. So either way you can make it so you don't believe.

More yammering. And it doesn't even rise to the level of ostensible.

OH, Now that hurts. Are you sure Darwinism rises to the level of ostensible?

There is no such science as Darwinism. There is only biology and evolution.

Well then, maybe its about time that biology distances itself from Darwin.

Let's apply your lousy reasoning to physics:

FS: "Are you sure Newtonism rises to the level of ostensible?"
MikeF: "There is no such science as Newtonism. There is only physics and gravity theory."
FS: "Well then, maybe its about time that physics distances itself from Newton".

THAT idiocy in your reasoning.

It would appear that the major Christian universities would rather distance themselves from your pseudoscience and apologist bloggers instead of evolutionary biology. I guess you'd take that as an indication that ya'll is just smarterer than them accomplished academians and researchers.

It's not about being smart or dumb. This is more akin to common sense. The wisest man in the Bible was Solomon and he said things on earth go in circuits. Experience and good judgement should lead these universities, and if they are Christians then they should not deny the Bible.
