To this day, when somebody claims to be an honest fool instead of a smart crook, I usually take his word for it.

Of course, the unfortunate thing is that most creos fall into a different category entirely, a dishonest fool.

Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus. -- Thomas Jefferson

For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and non-believers. -- Barack Obama

We see monsters where science shows us windmills. -- Phat

It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate

Re: Early tetrapods and tear ducts
There are so many complex systems, each with connecting systems that are virtually useless on their own, and yet you have very little interest to consider how or why they could come together without some kind of guidance
What makes you assume all of those complex system were always connected and always served the purpose they do now? Perhaps this is the reason you're having an issue?

Edited by DC85, : No reason given.

Closing this one down
I never was comfortable with this topics nature. It should have been started in the Proposed New Topics forum, and I'm not at all sure it would have been promoted out of there.

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Message 150
