Thank you guys.

I will concede it was a little puerile, but look what I had to work with ;-)


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

A general observation of Faith's posts over the years
Not a post of the month more a general observation of Faith's posts over the years.

Perhaps it's because her posts are now set in perspective next to another outrageous creationist that's currently spewing garbage over several threads, but her continual attempts to set her ideas within known science in several disciplines need to be recognised if not lauded.

She's utterly wrong in every post but she responds to most questions, she's consistent and mostly, I think, honest in her arguments.

As a raging loony creationist, she's a good 'un and I think we're lucky to have her.

Amen.

Her writing is legible. I always disagree with her but I understand what she is saying.

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq

Re: A general observation of Faith's posts over the years
Well thank you. I had to think twice before thanking you for a post that calls me a loony but hey, the compliments are very nice and I can't expect better. Thanks again.
