Ah, our beloved atheists on here, demanding respect and suffering such angst when the lesser beings don't recognize their true worth. By their own measure, anyhow.

They just can't understand how their fellow men could not see they are the best products bacterium, modified by eons of dinosaur excreta, swamp water, occasional lightning bolts, and the such could produce over a long period of time. To be enlightened by knowing they are just mere flukes of the universe, which resulted in such magnificent minds as they possess, has liberated them from the tyranny of induced thought of lesser products.

They will not be martyred though. They will make those dummies understand they are the wave of the future. They are the evolutionary advances mankind has been waiting for all of these years.

Or something like that.

Clark, life is but a one shot deal, is it not? According to you.

I hate to disappoint you Electromagnetic Man, but I have never said life is a one shot deal. How could I possibly know that. That would be as stupid as saying heaven was the end of the line for those who bow down and worship an angry, vengeful deity. Anyone who says they know what happens when the body dies is either a fool or a liar.

Clark rarely denigrates anyone. He's almost always of good humor. Why are you projecting negativity onto him?

You denigrate anyone who fails to pay heed to your ramblings. I'm not sure why IANS calls it poetry.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>
Where they believe that intelligent design was involved, there is no natural selection. ID hopes to displace natural selection wherever it inserts itself. After all, ID implies that natural selection can only build the "reducibly" complex, which is correct, but that some of nature is irreducibly complex. If so, that part was not assembled by natural selection.
Why do you quibble every semantic point? You knew what my words meant. I suppose it's all good. Maybe that relationship wasn't clear to everybody that might care. It never hurts to make it explicit at least once.
<quoted text>
ID has plenty of scientific evidence in support of it? You've already claimed that and failed to produce it. So no, not outside of the heads of believers there isn't.
<quoted text>
If you believe that the universe had an intelligent designer, then you are a theist.
<quoted text>
Those are not supporters. I am much of a supporter as that. It may surprise you to read it, but I also do not rule out intelligent design any more than I rule out all gods, and for the same reason. I also don't accept claims for either also for that same reason.
Nor do I consider the standard model adequate for all purposes. I agree that the present model may be incomplete. What carries behavior? I have a real tough time understanding how instinct could be coded in terms of nucleotides, codons, and/or translated polypeptides. It troubles me enough that I began speculating about what might serve as alternative storage media for transferring behavior from parent to offspring other than through the genetic code.
Notice that I still don't need to invoke a god just because I think I have a gap in my understanding. I just want a second medium or mechanism that can serve as a depot for storing behavioral information so that it can be inherited, because I just can't believe that suckling is coded by some protein or by some product that a protein can manufacture, and pecking your way out of a shell is coded by what looks like an enzyme. I don't buy it. And I have some candidate mechanisms in mind. But that's where it ends, not with magic, and not with god.
So, I know that feeling. But I think it's a logical error and sloppy thinking to invoke the supernatural before all natural possibilities have been exhausted. And intelligent design has been an effete idea to date.
There is certainly plenty that we have no figured out yet as to how evolution operates. And DNA, while certainly a major player in the inheritance of traits is turning out not to be the complete story. For example, there is a whole other layer at operation known as "epigenetics"...mean ing essentially "above the genes". These are chemicals that can attach to our genes and effect when and how those genes turn on and off. Some of epigenetics is controlled by other genes, but some are the result of environmental factors. Scientists are just now working on figuring out the "epigenome", but it appears it will be a vastly more difficult task than mapping the genome was.

But I do agree with you completely about ID being intellectually lazy. It is essentially an "throwing up of hands and giving up". It says "it all too complicated to figure out".

I also agree that ID has so far led nowhere in terms of research, and gives no indication of being ABLE to lead anywhere.

fine! but first, you must try responding without using any anti-christ jargon or information which has its roots in the kingdom of darkness;)
I know nothing of the "kingdom of darkness". Any response I give is taken from actual knowledge acquired by man-kind over the years.

I have no interest in being anti-christ. If someone was to actually give a valid piece of evidence on either side of this topic, I am more than happy to consider it.

There have been actually findings stated here which has caused most Christians to re-think what they believe, and to revise those beliefs to what is actually currently known. By currently I mean in the past 100 years, as many of the myths were uncovered 100 or more years ago, and most responsible churches adapted these pieces of knowledge to what they taught, rather than try to deny that which cannot be denied.

There are not many Christians today that don't accept that the flat plain which Jesus, when he went up on a high place with Satan and looked down, does not exist, because unknown to the writers of the Bible the earth is not flat.

Christians in the past have been executed for the heresy of claiming the earth is not flat. Doubtful that any Christian would think that justified today.

Wrong, lovie. I denigrate those who are chronic denigraters of those with religious beliefs. Which includes you.

Those are my thoughts I just throw up there to look at. Take them or leave them. If you feel compelled to ridicule them simply because you think it makes you look intelligent and enlightened, then I will also add you to the list. Especially if you can't recognize basic physics principles.

Too many of you that do that, do so because you are trying to emulate professional shock jocks, low grade comedians, and provocateurs you see on the mass media. You are credits to your intellectual development and maturation levels.
