|Yet I'm told I don't know what ID is about. Right...|
Of course. It was the bit where you claimed that it only concerned abiogenesis that was the dead giveaway.
|It's claimed my ability to distinguish between "Natural Selection" and artificial selection prevents me from knowing what "Natural Selection" means.|
No-one has claimed that. That is nonsense that you've made up in your head.
In the real world, where real people live, I pointed out that you had confused natural and artificial selection. At no point did I ever claim that you possessed any "ability to distinguish between "Natural Selection" and artificial selection", because this is clearly not true. You do not have that ability, and I have stated so clearly.
Just to make it quite clear, I have never claimed, and probably never will claim, that you are able to distinguish between them.
Do you understand now?
|I'm told time and time again I don't know what evolutionism is about.|
And you have learned nothing from this experience?
|I maintain that it's not difficult to see what ID is about.|
Oh look, you inadvertently told the truth!
|Neither is it difficult to see that it bears very little resemblance to any of the straw men which have been constructed hereabouts.|
"Straw men"? You mean like when I quoted from a textbook on ID?
|1.) Why are evolutionists terrified of ID?|
We are not. This is a silly fantasy that you've made up in your head.
Do you not understand that some people are capable of pointing out that an idea is wrong without being afraid of it?
|2.) Why can't they tackle the real ID instead of misportraying it?|
We do not misportray it. This is a silly fantasy that you've made up in your head. We portray it by quotations from ID proponents.
|I trust the answers to both of these questions are obvious.|
|My prediction for the imaginary situation that is the topic of this thread could be wrong. It's not likely we'll find out. Note that from the very first they have tried to give the impression that ID = CS...|
Actually, it's not evolutionists who have given the impression that ID = CS. It's the "cdesign proponentsists" using the same definitions of both terms.
"Intelligent design means that various forms of life began abruptly through an intelligent agency with their distinctive features already intact: Fish with fins and scales, birds with feathers, beaks and wings." (Of Pandas And People as it was eventually published.)
"Creation means that the various forms of life began abruptly through the agency of an intelligent creator with their distinctive features already intact. Fish with fins and scales, birds with feathers, beaks, and wings, etc." (Of Pandas And People as it was first drafted.)
