Please either say something to john hunter regarding his new thread big bang and cosmology or allow it through. I'm itching to reply to it. Also, if you notice, the guy is a newbie. If you just ignore him like that, it's not the best way to draw new blood into our gene pool.

Please promote mike's new thread.

I don't think I'll be taking part in this thread much as message one is pretty strong and these truths are hard to deny.
I am itching to answer because those "truths" are utterly wrong.

What's wrong with a pile on? He did ask for it.
I'm rather surprised he didn't check out these "truths" first before posting them here.

I am requesting the admins to promote this topic proposal by our newest member here.
It is clear that none of the admins here can really understand what he is talking about. Why not promote it and let some of the other forum members take a stab at it (ahem Brad)? It really looks like he is making a lot of effort for his thread. I do not believe the thread itself is any kind of disruption for this forum. I say we let natural selection take over.

A major reason behind the PNT is to stop nonsense topics from cluttering the place up. It is also to give us some mimimum quality to the nature of the debate.
You can always close it later.
Ptolemy doesn't show any sign that he understands his own speculations.
But you have to give it to the guy that he is trying really hard to try to get his point across. I think such effort alone should give him some chance for others in the forum to give it a try with him.
Until he does it will only result in nonsense discussions like we have had with, for example, whatever.
I don't agree that we can compare him to whatever. While Ptolemy seemed like he honestly tried to respond to you and other admins, whatever never gave any serious effort. Most of the time, whatever talked to himself rather than others.
I have been trying to read Ptolemy's stuff and I must admit to being confused. However, you can't expect perfection from someone so new. Until you promote the subject, we could never find out if anyone in the forum actually understands what he is talking about and can respond appropriately.
The reason I am pushing this is because I am curious. If he is a crackpot, he doesn't seem like your typical crackpot. Just give him a chance and see what happens. Natural selection.

Lam is there a reason you seem to immediately think the worst of us?
Yes. Some bastard sabotaged our water pipe and flooded several floors... flooded my room. I'm convinced it was the same person that set our building on fire once this semester and twice last semester. It still smell like smoke here.
Most of the time it is simple overlook.
And I also put that into consideration. However, by my count, there are currently 5 very active admins. I have noticed that while some topics get "overlooked" for a day or two, and sometimes several days, many comments are made by the same 5 admins in other threads and PNTs.
Older members might understand that you guys have your hands full already, but what about the newer members?
I am not saying that you should promote such topics right away. I am saying that if you have plans for a proposed topic but do not want to act it out right away, at least drop a line or two. Even simple words like "your topic sucks" is better than letting the person wait for several days after which some thoughts may have already gotten lost. And I'm not only referring to the OP starter.

EvC Forum: The evidence of God
Take your time. Work with him. But essentially, please don't let this one slip away. I don't know how long my drugs will last before the itch to respond becomes critical.
It is now clear that he is a troubled young man. Please give him extra consideration. I'll be nice. I promise.

Please promote Jerry's new topic 10 Categories of Evidence For ID .
AJ said that
quote:
Very interesting post but I believe you failed to mention what exactly do you want to debate here. Can you please do that in a few words?
I disagree with this assessment.
Putting several other threads into consideration, there have been quite a few public outrcy for Jerry and several other IDists to give precise examples of the evidence that support ID. Jerry did exactly that.
Even though he did not literally say, "I want us to debate about blah blah blah...", there are enough material on there for people to begin analyzing in detail. I would agree more if the assessment was something like "this topic is too broad..."
If my post simple evidence for ID and Chris's rant Evidence for God came through, why did Jerry's proposed topic get put on hold?

I am requesting that a thread (or threat) be created for the sole purpose of question-answer only. I know that Faith is now restricted from the science forum, but I think you guys are a bit harsh on her. If she honestly want to see the "other side", more power to her.
The questions that she raised in her proposed new topic post here are, I think, not that bad. I say create a thread (or threat) in the science forum for her and restrict her to only that thread (or threat).
God forbid, there might be hope for her soul, amen.
