Please post your "Defending ID" Posts here.
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary students of William Dembski's "Intelligent Design" course/s, welcome.

http://www.designinference.com/teaching/teaching.htm

AP410 ... (3) provide at least 10 posts defending ID that you've made on "hostile" websites, the posts totalling 2,000 words, along with the URLs (i.e., web links) to each post (worth 20% of your grade).

AP510 ...(4) provide at least 10 posts defending ID that you've made on "hostile" websites, the posts totalling 3,000 words, along with the URLs (i.e., web links) to each post (worth 20% of your grade).


Please post your "Defending ID" posts on this thread: I believe we qualify.

We are generally "hostile" to all kinds of stupidity and ignorance, to misrepresentations of reality, and to avoiding the evidence of reality all around us, but well reasoned arguments are welcome.

If you think you have a valid argument please feel free to share it, but be warned - known PRATTs will be ridiculed - and be prepared to defend your position rather than just state it.

If you don't know what a PRATT is see:
TalkOrigins PRATT List and
Arguments (ie PRATTS) we (AiG) think creationists should no use

A PRATT is a Point Refuted a Thousand Times ... or in other words it is an argument as silly as trying to defend the concept that the earth is flat.

CRITERIA FOR QUALITY DEBATE

EvC Forum holds itself to high standards of debate for all participants on all sides of any issue:

  • Research arguments to find supporting evidence and to answer evidence that is contradicts one's thesis. Reject concepts that have been invalidated.

  • Give well thought out responses to replies supported by researched evidence and sound reasoning.

  • Also helpful is correct spelling and proper use of paragraphs. Take advantage of online spelling and grammar checkers.

We challenge you to survive your 20 posts and to resolve any issues left hanging with unsupported elements of your argument.

We will grade you

  • on your science,
  • on your supporting evidence,
  • on original thinking,
  • on your logic,
  • on your grammar,
  • on your spelling, and
  • on your attitude.

Will you take the challenge?

Enjoy.

... your message is linked to the one you are replying to (adds clarity). You can also look at the way a post is formatted with the "peek" button next to it.

ps - note that I am a Deist - we invented Intelligent Design - and it is my personal opinion that teaching ID can open a student to considering the many possibilities of science, to understanding the scientific method and how science is actually done, both in the field and in the lab, and the difference between science and philosophy.

Re: Please post your 20 Posts here.
Can you do a "friendly, inviting, engaging" version?
