EvC will completely degenerate (write that down!)
Prof John A. Davison writes:

I predict that within one year of this date, Pharyngula, Panda’s Thumb, EvC, RichardDawkins.net and Uncommon Descent will all have so completely degenerated as to become nothing but embarrassing footnotes in the history of internet communication.

The end of civilization is nigh, and the fall of EvC is one of its portents!

Re: EvC degenerate (write that down!)- I dont think so
Well, I just finished listening to Lynn Margulis
Thursday, Feb. 14 - "Darwin's Truths and Symbiogenesis," at Cornell's Biotech Building, Room G-10, at 7 p.m., a lecture by Lynn Margulis, Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Geosciences, University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

and by her, Dawkins is "coming around" to her view.

Thus I suppose I can see that Dawkins".net" may be degenerating but to think that EvC can not gain say JAD's negative position as a student of Crow,I think is false and THAT is precisely because we DO allow all sides to be considered.

Let me just say here that if anyone wants to talk with me about Margulis in another thread I would be happy as I have got a rather clear notion of what she means and intends by "symbiogenesis". She has phrased it in terms of Darwin's word "check"(thinking (perhaps wrongly) that "environment=body")) and for this reason either Dawkins MUST come around or else she has to be wrong to disagree with Will Provine (she did tonite) that "neo-Darwinian" math can not understand genome acquistion. I know where I stand but her placing of natural selection as unable to generate novelty explains to me better how Creationism can continue to expand, playing off the difference in the last paragraph. This is not going to degenerte as long as Percy keeps EvC powered. Margulis took a couple of pictures ofmy pet Ostrcods of EVC. I think I really do understand what she is talking about. She even mentions "infinity" in the span of one generation holistically.

Hillbilly math
This is the most hillarious thing I've ever seen.

Notice that this reflects the frustration that we have here in the EvC debate.

Re: Uncyclopedia on Nihilism
Reminds me of a bit of dialogue from an odd existential French comedy, Des nouvelles du bon Dieu (1998):
Police Inspector: They're nihilists!
Policeman: What?
Police Inspector: Nothing.

You don't know Jack Schitt...
The lineage is now revealed. Many people are at a loss for a response when someone says "You don't know Jack Schitt," but now you can handle this situation with confidence!

Jack is the only son of O. Schitt and Awe Schitt. O. Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married Awe Schitt, the owner of Knee-deep N.Schitt, Inc.

In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt, and the deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Giva Schitt, Bull Schitt and the twins, Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt.

Against her parents objections, Deep Schitt married Dump Schitt, a high school drop-out. After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced. Noe Schitt later married Mr. Scherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt-Sherlock.

Dip Schitt married Loada Schitt and they produced a nervous son, Chicken Schitt. Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony. The wedding announcement in the newspapers announced the Schitt-Happens wedding. They created a bumper sticker and made millions. You've probably seen it...

The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd and Hoarse. Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new bride Pisa Schitt.

So now when someone says, "You don't know Jack Schitt," you can correct them and inform them of your more than deep knowledge of the family tree.

Driving 4 Jeebus
The other day some old gal went up to a local Christian bookstore and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker. She was feeling particularly sassy that day, because she had just come from a thrilling choir practice followed by a powerful prayer meeting, so she bought the sticker and put it on her bumper.

She was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection just lost in thought about the Lord and how good He is, and she didn't notice that the light had changed.

It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus; because if he hadn't honked, she'd never have noticed. She decided that LOTS of people love Jesus because while she was sitting there, the nice man behind started honking like crazy, and he leaned out of his window and screamed, "For the love of God, GO! GO!" She thought, "What an exuberant cheerleader
he is for the Lord."

Everyone started honking! She just leaned out of her window and started waving and smiling at all these loving people. She even honked her horn a few times to share in the love. She decided there must have been a man from Florida back there, because she heard him yelling something about a sunny beach. She saw another man waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. When the old gal asked her teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant, he said that it was an Hawaiian good luck sign or something.

Well, she'd never met anyone from Hawaii, so she leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign back. Her grandson burst out laughing; why even he was enjoying this religious experience.

A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards her. She thought they wanted to pray or ask what church she attended, but this is when she noticed the light had changed. So she waved to all her sisters and brothers, smiled at them all, and drove on through the intersection.

She noticed she was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again, and felt kind of sad to leave them after all the love they had shared, so she slowed the car down, leaned out of the window, and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as she drove away, thinking to herself, "Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!"
