Re: Why is the Intelligent Designer such an idiot?
The last two pages degenerated, which is why Adminnemooseus closed it. There were multiple contributors to the degeneration, for an example of your own see Message 148. I'll reopen the thread, but I leave it to you to keep the thread focused on arguments from evidence rather than from incredulity and ridicule, otherwise the thread will soon be closed again.
For future reference, threads with titles that include words like "idiot" might do well at attracting participants, but not necessarily the serious ones you might like, and like a red car on the highway they tend to attract the attention of moderators, too. You might consider changing the title to something like, "Why is the Intelligent Designer Inept?"
Daniel4140 wasn't addressing the thread's topic. If Daniel4140 doesn't propose a topic to discuss his issues then someone else should do it for him. His marshaling of a number of creationist arguments against dating methods deserves to be addressed.
Because this would be off topic on that thread, I would like to propose a thread to explore how one could come to the belief in devolution/no new information without a religious, and in particular a biblical, background.
In your most recent message you said, Message 32, you said:
I would like to keep the topic to how someone could accept the geocentric belief in spite of the immense scientific evidence to the contrary.
The change in focus from "devolution/no new information" to "geocentric belief" is why Adminnemooseus believed the thread to be drifting off-topic.
I think I understand that what you actually intended as the thread's central focus was making the case that all beliefs of this sort are religiously motivated rather than scientifically evidenced. I'll reopen the thread, but in your next post please make clear the thread's central focus.
Each thread has an ID number, so if you say something like [tid=13101] (where 13101 is the thread ID for this thread) then you'll get Thread Reopen Requests 2. If you hover over any link to the thread or link to a message of that thread then you'll see the thread ID displayed in the little hoverbox. And once I know what thread you're referring to I can check if it makes sense to reopen it.
