The state of the Percy
I believe Percy considers himself to be a deist. Which, from my perspective, is damn close to atheist.

The relevant topic is probably I Am Not An Atheist!, started by Percy.
A related topic: Percy is a Deist - Now what's the difference between a deist and an atheist? started by Minnemooseus

Life at "Evolution Fairytales"
There wasn't much going on here, so I have spent some time over at evolution fairytale.
I registered there a while back, if for no other reason, to lurk more efficiently. I may come out of the closet soon.
I'm logged in there right now. They're having some sort of database (almost typed dadabase*, which may or may not be the same thing) problems and you can't access any of the topics. And both Google and Yahoo are listed as being there. This can't be a good thing for the sites search index.

*Per here - Dada rejected reason and logic, prizing nonsense, irrationality and intuition.
Of course, that is an out of context sentence.

Still, there is the problem of dogpiles and jerk evolutionists
RAZD writes:
My observation would be that the more one argues an opinion against evidence the more one is likely to be moderated -- regardless of what that opinion is about -- and the more one reacts with an emotional outburst the more one is likely to be moderated.
It isn't the creationism that is is moderated, per se, rather it's the continued and repeated unsupported assertions and emotional replies.
This reply could come from Adminnemooseus, but I put on the full evolutionist hat and post it as Minnemooseus.
The evolution side recognizes that the creation "science" side is armed with an empty gun. Still, the evo side demand is that they fire something other than blanks. Isn't that a variety of cogitative dissonance in itself?
And we do have the problem of dogpiling the creationist, often by less than friendly evolutionists (evo-jerks). This is something that needs to be battled, and it's not an easy thing for moderators to sort through. So yet again I preach, "evo side, please bring up the friendly level".
Dewise1 does many epic and devastating argument messages, but does he ever descend to being an evo-jerk? Very rarely if at all.
My impression and recollection (being one of poor memory) is that Foreveryoung is a higher than average rationality creationist. He did some good discussions and I really do like the guy. Unfortunately, the combination of dogpiling and/or evo-jerks twice caused him to crack in an extreme manner. He needed a substantial suspension vacation for his own good.
Even when civility is high, the evo to creo ratio means the creo is going to get pounded. A creo has to be damn durable (Buzsaw?) to take that pounding and still stick around.
I think it should be an item of basic human decency here, but do we need the 11th forum rule of "Don't be a jerk"?
Feel free to rearrange my sentences and paragraphs in better order. Or something like that.

The creationist goes off-topic and the evos gladly follow
So, should the evolutionists that follow going off-topic also be treated equally?
