I think Theological Creationism and ID we designed for this purpose. And it was built for Faith too, if I recall correctly.
Why are "Theological Creationism" and "Intelligent Design" bunched together on the same thread title? They're clearly different things, from a pro-ID perspective. In effect you are classifying them together by the implication inherent in the title of the thread!
This seems to be a major case of question begging, biased to favour the Darwinian camp.
Ok, I see, like Theological Creationists can discuss evidence from Intelligent Design theory that supports their beliefs. I get it.
However, to say:
...these kinds of topics could be discussed without the evidence requirements of the science forums.
is the same question-begging as I thought the title was, and just as biased toward the Darwinian camp.
It implies that NEITHER 'Theological Creationism' NOR 'Intelligent Design' are supported by scientific fact, and that's just not true of ID. (nor for that matter properly understood Theological Creationism, but that's another topic) cheers
Ok I completely understand you this time. That forum is for discussing non-scientific implications of ID theory. I apologize for speaking out in my ignorance, I can only say that my protest was made in good faith, although misguided by my assumptions.
The personal abuse on the Intelligent Design threads is getting out of hand. If it doesn't stop, I will have to recommend disciplinary actions, or leave this board. There has been no meaningful discussion for the last couple days, and lots of personal harassment and insults. I'm talking about these threads : 'Is there a legitimate argument for design?' and 'The Semiotic argument for design'
For instance, the latest thread in 'Legitimate argument' is this:

You are throwing useless RED HERRINGS into the discussion in an attempt to harass me. Any more of this an I will be reporting this to the administrators. Hey, I've got an idea, why don't you report that I've invited you to kiss my ass, you unresponsive troll.
Now, if that is the opinion of all of you Darwinists on this forum, just let me know and I'll take my leave.
There's no understanding to be found under these conditions.
Well, as an administrator, it's your responsibility to enforce the rules that are intended to keep this forum civil.
If it's your choice not to take corrective action, then I'll have to declare this forum a sham. I was promised "understanding through Discussion" not harassment by dog piling.
You all know what you are doing. You can't refute my argument for design so you act dumb and start asking pre-high school level questions, nit picking and finally personal attacks. A little in the spirit of humour is entertainment. In these quantities, however, it's harassment and abuse.
