Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

I haven't seen any case of the ID science guys, Behe, Minnich, Meyer, staging fake photographs to support their theory.
Seems ID guys are not only smarter than the Darwinists,...but also more honest.
This link gives a decent explanation.

Bollocks, I have had enough of your winging because you want the church to be squeaky clean. It isn’t so live with it.
They are fooking priests you moron, so it should be lower than the national average, those bum fookers are supposed to be trusted. It should not exist at all in the church, but it does so there is something else you’ll have to live with.
Yes those people are called priests. Or have you not been following the conversation?
Of course I want the church to be clean

I already admitted it wasn't

I already said I brought up the 1.8% not to minimize it but to illustrate the inherent danger that thinking it is way higher can cause when people don't also focus on additional places

You are way too stupid to try revisionist history on me. How many more times would you like to be corrected? I have no problem doing it a 6th time.

Actually I did say that the British media has was a deeper concern about exposing child abuse than the United States, which appears by the very nature and output of the British and US press machine to be true.
I also said the that US press were more interesting in protecting there national security with is also true.
Different perspective, so where am I lying?
Oh I get it, you have nothing else to offer. Fair enough
You said it as an insult about the United Stares

If you like I can post your old post to show you are lying? This is twice I've offered. You gonna go with revisionist history again?

What you offer here is easily grasped. It's just not the argument you have made.
Then why have you had such a hard time grasping it? You have never shown one inkling of understanding it.

Perhaps if you are the calculus maven you claim, you can describe the Weirstrauss Theorem.

And you also seem to be saying that priest who rape children are not offenders.
Honey give up now before you dig yourself a hole so deep that you can’t hide under your religion
You may be the dumbest person on Topix

How did you come up with that?!

Q In fact, your definition of scientific theory is synonymous with hypothesis, correct?

A Partly -- it can be synonymous with hypothesis, it can also include the National Academy's definition. But in fact, the scientific community uses the word "theory" in many times as synonymous with the word "hypothesis," other times it uses the word as a synonym for the definition reached by the National Academy, and at other times it uses it in other ways.

Q But the way you are using it is synonymous with the definition of hypothesis?

A No, I would disagree. It can be used to cover hypotheses, but it can also include ideas that are in fact well substantiated and so on. So while it does include ideas that are synonymous or in fact are hypotheses, it also includes stronger senses of that term.

Q And using your definition, intelligent design is a scientific theory, correct?

A Yes.

Q Under that same definition astrology is a scientific theory under your definition, correct?

A Under my definition, a scientific theory is a proposed explanation which focuses or points to physical, observable data and logical inferences. There are many things throughout the history of science which we now think to be incorrect which nonetheless would fit that -- which would fit that definition. Yes, astrology is in fact one, and so is the ether theory of the propagation of light, and many other -- many other theories as well.

Q The ether theory of light has been discarded, correct?

A That is correct.

Q But you are clear, under your definition, the definition that sweeps in intelligent design, astrology is also a scientific theory, correct?

A Yes, that's correct.

End quote

Note two things...

The "using your definition" for Behe determining ID is science and the "Yes, that's correct" when asked if astrology is also science under that definition.

That really says it all right there. ID is as much science as astrology. Behe admitted it. No, he didn't say the words, "ID is not science"...but it is perfectly clear he might as well have.

You always have have trouble figuring out what is going on from what post to the next too. Other than RT, the women atheists (I will just go by whatever group you claim to be in at the moment) are really dragging down the curve for your side. And I know plenty of very intelligent women so that's not an indictment on females. It is just random chance I guess that some of the dumbest ones are in the same place
And 'chook'
Who are you trying to copy now? Rosa goes all 'drungo' and whatever other supposed saying are where she is probably pretending to be from and now the Topix sheep has to copy of course! Have you ever used that word before right now?

.. in contrast, your writing is tight, concise, thoughtful. That's the sign of a disciplined, astute mind. Can I call you 'friend'??..
You have used 'stream if consciousness' in like 6 posts to it about me. Most of the time completely in the wrong context. You are trying too hard to sound smart. At least try not to over-rely on the same phrase repeatedly. It looks forced and a little goofy

Yup, that explained it.

"One explanation might be that biology textbooks, which are often authored by non-experts, are generally junk, always out of step and unrepresentative of the latest science."

Pointing out the circular reasoning of an extremely huge brown eye doesn't do much either.
Except point out the extremely huge brown eye.
