Riverrat's women's rights thread... please promote the bloody thing. I can understand when the OP isn't so well thought out or written, but it has turned into a debate between admins. Frankly, I see nothing wrong with the original OP. If admins don't like the tone of it, just throw it into the coffee house and get it over with. Either that or close it down.

Place yourself on the map at http://www.frappr.com/evc
The thread about this map can be found here.

Please promote the bloody platypus thread. I know exactly what Dragoness' husband was referring to when he pointed out the platypus.
When I was a young man back in my fundamentalist days, I attended a sermon by a local preacher on how unscientific evolution was. One of the things he said was that the platypus completely disproved the theory of evolution because of the following reasons: (1) The animal has a head of a bird, (2) it has a body of a mammal, and (3) it has a skeleton of a reptile. At the time everyone including myself applauded the bullshit.
I would like to give Dragoness an easy to understand explanation of why the platypus poses no problem for the theory of evolution so she could talk to her husband. I can't do that when you moderators took it upon yourselves to keep repeating the bleeding obvious, that it poses no problem to the theory of evolution.
After I give her the explanation, you guys can go ahead and close it if you want. But for now, your by the book, word for word, CEO type sticking by the procedure ain't gonna help anyone and is driving me nuts.

Re: Just go ahead and open Buz's new PNT
As adminpaul and admincoragyps almost pulled their hair out trying to explain to Buz, Buz wanted his topic to be promoted to the bible study section but there isn't anything remotely related to the bible in the OP or in the topic.

This is a semi-serious request. I'd like the admins to promote this thread just because I want to see the thread author converse with Brad McFall. I don't know about you, but I'd pay big money to see the two talking with one another.

Re: PNT
The two creation stories have been beaten to death many times before. I think you're just too lazy to do a simple search for the appropriate threads

Owing to the deficiency of the English language, I have occasionally used the academic jargon generator to produce phrases that even I don't fully understand. The jargons are not meant to offend anyone or to insult anyone's intelligence!

Re: PNT
You're just too lazy to search. I'm not going to do your homework for you. I do remember the issue came up before and beaten to death.
PS From now on, when ever I talk to you I will give you answers that are non-answers. You asked for it

Fine, I will write a more substantial PNT on this subject... when I have the time.

I'm referring to this topic proposal.
OH, COME ON!
(1) Removing a link for hate mongering? We're a bunch of professionals here. We're not a bunch of idiots that will get brainwashed by a website.
(2) Promote the damn thing and let us discuss what's wrong with the proposed topic.
(3) Do you want me to start posting links to the kkk, westboro baptist church, and a whole crapload of other hate mongering websites?

Double proposed new topic by same member followed by double promotion for the same damn thing.
EvC Forum: How Dawkins made me a better person
EvC Forum: The God Delusion, how it converted an evangalist

Topic proposal system ain't fair for some of us
I don't have very much free time on my hands. I just logged on and saw this topic proposal. I have a well thought out, calm and simple explanation to why his objection to "macroevolution" is a result of his misunderstanding of evolution. From his very own words, I can tell that there are some very fundamental misunderstanding of the theory of evolution on his part. But it hasn't been promoted yet so I can't reply.
By the next time that I can get on, there will already be half a dozen pages of dog-pile.
The point is I ain't got time to sit around all day waiting for the topic proposal to be promoted so I can reply. And when I do finally get a chance to reply, I'm half a dozen to a dozen pages too late to have any meaningful reply.
I say get rid of the topic proposal system and let Smith's invisible hand take over. Like I said, I don't have that much free time so I can't compete with the members who seem to be always on.
This ain't the only time I've encountered a topic that I want to have a well thoughtout meaningful discussion but couldn't because it's still awaiting promotion. There have been many others and it's irritating to come back the next day to find half a dozen pages of the same damn things from the same damn members who seem to be stalking this forum all day long.
