So you lied when you posted that you did hit your baby in a restaurant for embarrassing you ?
I never said that.

People like you and Feltcher like to embellish.

That's not very honest.

Feeling persecuted again? I'm going to guess that those people went to preach where they knew they were unwelcome rather than being hunted down in their homes while minding their own business.
My father told me not to fuck with the bull if you're not prepared to take the horn, and if you do, don't cry about it.
You tell me that. Your post here shows how little you care about human life, ESPECIALLY Christian life.

The point is that I've illustrated to you how stupid it is to stereotype, as you do with Christians and 'the church'.

I doubt you understand the exercise.

Taking it out of context and changing the wording IS intellectual dishonesty, dumb ass.

When I quote Harris about killing people, I quote him verbatim.

Try again, loser.

No it doesn't. Irreducible complexity means; "composed of several well-matched, interacting parts that contribute to the basic function, wherein the removal of any one of the parts causes the system to effectively cease functioning".
In other words, remove the spring of the mousetrap and you no longer have a functioning mousetrap.
Michael Behe:

"A final reason for the persuasiveness of the example [Miller mousetrap] we can call the "Clever Hans effect." Clever Hans was the name of a horse who seemed to be pretty good at arithmetic. Its owner would give Hans a simple math problem such as 5+5, and the horse would stamp his hoof ten times, then stop. It eventually turned out that Clever Hans could pick up unconscious cues from its owner, who might raise his eyebrows or tilt his head when the horse's stamping reached the right value. The horse could even pick up unintentional cues from other people, not just the owner, who also apparently gave telltale reactions. In the case of Clever Hans, the human intelligence of the owner was inadvertently attributed to the horse. In my experience the same is invariably true of Darwinian scenarios--human intelligence is critical to guiding the scenario through difficulties toward the "proper" goal, but the intelligence is then attributed to natural selection. As with Clever Hans, the guidance is usually unconscious, but is intelligent nonetheless."

I didn't say rehabilitation doesn't work.

I said it doesn't work most of the time.

And that's a fact.

You know nothing about the case. You know nothing about Dembski's case. You have read nothing about it, learned nothing about it. And if you read something about it, you still would know nothing about it, because you are a blathering moron. Your brain is bat shit. You are a bat. You sleep hanging upside down. You are stupid in appearance, because nobody as mentally stupid as you could avoid looking visually stupid. I suspect you have one eye in the center of your head, and your mouth is vertical like an ass crack.

Buck Crick wrote:
<quoted text>
Lincoln was not a humanist, but a theist..
.. that's debatable. While Honest Abe professed Christianity, he was not a member of any church nor did he indulge in religious rituals. He did accompany Mrs. Lincoln, an advocate of the occult, to seances ..

And he was not an abolitionist.
.. first and foremost, he was a politician walking a fine line. There will also be an unending debate on Lincoln's commitment to racial equality ..
