Taq in the sequel Novel Features thread
Taq in Message 58 of How novel features evolve #2.

Clear enough to see even if you did go blind from doing it.


Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!

Thank you
Thank you for both nominations. It is always nice to hear that your arguments are coming through clearly.

He strikes again!
It not always easy deciding which of A's gems deserves the most recognition (actually they are all virtually the same, but some do contain the words pink unicorn, that's how you can tell them apart) but hey, this one is good:

From How Novel features Evolve #2, message 62

I think its brilliant, because it really causes one to ponder with great perplexity, why he is so determined to push another key. Is it reflex? A twitch? Like a sort of tourettes of the fingers? The possibilities are endless. Such food for thought!

Although Dr. A's reply is factually accurate, pithy and correct in its assessment of zaius137's post, I do not feel it quite meets Dr. A's normal high standards.
Therefore, although I commend you on suggesting such a consistently good poster for PotM, I cannot support your nomination of that particular post.

Re: He strikes again!
ditto. quick jabs may be good fun, but it doesn't really substantially add information or even a real coherent argument. which is what i come to PotM for.

I realise Bolder-dash has a deep affection for Dr. A, but I do wish he would think before proposing so many of Dr. A's posts as PotM.

Foreveryoung at "AiG's Strategy: Indoctrinate and Isolate"
Author: Foreveryoung
Forum: Theological Creationism and ID
Thread: AiG's Strategy: Indoctrinate and Isolate
Message #: 50

Regardless of what you have seen in the past six months of me, my creationist stance has gone through a myriad of changes over the past 4 years.

Largely the message relates to "The Flood". Such a burst of sense, I must wonder why he's a creationist at all (or something like that). We seem to have a TrueCreation, version 2. TC's most recent message here.

TrueCreation writes:

I am no longer a YEC. I have been well, and it is good to see that others and 'old friends' are still enjoying these conversations. I have certainly missed mine.

Seconded, the world could do with more TC's and his graduate studies in geophysics. As to foreveryoung, all I ask is forever question.
