If yet another thread from the resident idiot Davidjay is to be promoted
at least get him to clear up whether the topic is the history of the Theory of Evolution or the history of evolution itself or some other inane sophomoric platform for his crap and word salad.

Re: "Discuss the origins of EVOLUTION."
Its an honest topic. We discussed Creations exact history ...

Where do you claim that we did that?

Don't promote Davidjay's proposed thread
Davidjay is off to a bad start with his new thread proposal:

Science is laws, but evolution is still a theory...

Absolutely wrong. Science is facts-and-theories. And theories explain laws.

This is a chance for evolutionists to declare and state their origins of their theory...

That's well over 150 years ago and the theory had evolved tremendously since then. But I suspect Davidjay has lots of cut-and-pastes from his website just ready to dump on us, thinking that if he can discredit Darwin or the origins of the theory he can make it all go away. (He can't)

Good debates involve both sides answering questions about their claims or statements...

Which is one thing Davidjay doesn't do.

If you won't send him packing, at least do some moderation to get him to conform to Forum Guidelines. Certainly don't reward him with another thread to spam his nonsense.

Evolutionists need a chance to participate in this origin of evolution, OR research it and find out about the first believers in thier theory and what it was based on.

The last thing "evolutionists" need is to be lectured by a spamming and terminally-confused numerologist who is anti-science from start to finish.

Re: Promote Davidjay's proposed thread
Dont be afraid of discussing the origins of Evolution or the History of evolution.

http://www.evcforum.net/dm.php?control=msg&t=19435

There are enough evolutionists around to support you. Just have some courage and write in explanation of your theory.

Edited by Davidjay, : No reason given.

The Lord is the GREAT SCIENTIST as He created SCIENCE and ALL LAWS and ALL MATTER and of course ALL LIFE. God is the Great Architect, Designer and Mathematician. Evolutioon is not mathematical and says there is no DESIGN but that all things came about by sheer LUCK.

I don't see any note posted to the thread, but it looks like someone already reopened it.

Sorry, not closed but in summation mode -- can that be switched off or would you prefer a new thread?

Enjoy

DavidJay's *********s
Not really a whine so much as a question. Is DavidJay prevented from typing a whole bunch of words by moderators? A lot of his posts are filled in asterisks in place of words, and it's rarely looks like anything that would make sense from either the point of self-censorship or imposed restrictions. What's going on?

Well here's a whine.

I've got DavidJay on my imaginary 'do not reply' list because he's a deluded, self-aggrandising, proselytising arsehole that doesn't listen to argument or respond to questions. He's probably also mentally ill. He's successfully trolling this forum with total garbage in every post - but we continue to respond.

Can I suggest that a little self-moderation is in order? Why respond to his garbage? Wouldn't we be better ignoring all the bollox and only responding when he says something that has actual content? Otherwise I wake up to another dozen posts full of insane crap that I have to see before I ignore it.

The child rearing code of 'ignore bad behaviour, reward good' seems to be in order.
