Re: Goes with the territory.
Marjorie Taylor Greene is a good politician

I have no doubt she is a good politician. That's not exactly a compliment.

What she isn't is rational, logical, or knowledgeable.

Have you ever watched the documentary of Sun Tzu, the Art of War in YouTube? Watch it and apply that to Evolution...

Of course I know...if not, I will not fight. But I think the ToE supporters do not know...

Read The Art of War and apply that to yourself!:

quote:
Sun Tzu, Scroll III (Offensive Strategy):

31. Therefore I say: "Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never be in peril.
32. When you are ignorant of the enemy but know yourself, your chances of winning or losing are equal.
33. If ignorant both of your enemy and of yourself, you are certain in every battle to be in peril."

(Sun Tzu The Art of War, translation by Samuel B. Griffith, Oxford University Press, 1963)

You are ignorant both of your enemy and yourself, so you are certain in every battle to be in peril.

Or to quote a past governor of Mississippi (perennially last in education) justifying his education reforms:

quote:
We've already tried ignorance, so we know that that doesn't work.

I guess you haven't learned that about ignorance yet.

I have no doubt she is a good politician.

No, she is not! She has been disciplined by being removed from her committee assignments. Why? Because she was threatening fellow members of Congress with violence.

The practice of politics involves building and using interpersonal relationships with fellow politicians. She killed that with her threats of violence against fellow politicians. Yes, that is how the GQP now rolls, but it does also make her unviable as a politician.

Her involvement in the attempted overthrow of the government is just icing on the top. I can't wait to see that other shoe drop on all those GQP traitors.

Kind of telling
Instead of actually reading Sun Tzu he suggests watching a youtube video about Sun Tzu.
Speaks volumes.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Kind of telling
I wonder if there is anyone that posts regularly at EvC other than the Christian Cult of Ignorance and Deceit that has not read Sun Tzu, Mencius, Confucius, Lao Tzu, the Eight Fold Path, the Bible and at least some of the Vedas?

Re: Kind of telling
For starter, it is good that you must watch the videos as explained by the experts, unless the experts are stupid.

Re: Goes with the territory.
There is no perfect politician, at least, she follows Make America Great Again, instead of destroying America, with Pres Biden.

But you don't have any explanation at all! I'm not trying to be antagonistic, I really mean it; there's no explanation in what you've written. It's just a pile of unintelligible words. They carry no meaning.

It's not that we disagree with your argument or that you've made mistakes, it's simply that what you've written is gibberish, just nonsense.

You must have heard this before? Doesn't it worry you a little bit that you can't get any journal to touch your stuff? It really should. You're not even getting suggestions for improvements are you?

Look, we can help you at least understand what evolution is. Without that you can't hope to make an argument against it.

Reminds me of one of the most incredibly stupid things I'd ever heard a creationist say. And it was one of the star creationists too!

It was either Dr. Henry Morris or Dr. Duane Gish (my memory leans towards it being Gish) on a radio show in the late 80's. From memory of more than three decades ago:

quote:
Creation is the far better explanation than evolution could be. Evolution claims it can explain everything but it fails to explain anything. Creation doesn't claim to be able to explain anything and sure enough it doesn't! That makes creation the best explanation!

Something which doesn't even claim to explain anything is the best explanation? It's steel-trap minds (ie, rusted shut) and logic like that which makes creationists legends in their own minds.

Similarly, MrID not only hasn't produced any explanations but he also refuses to do so. But that doesn't stop him from making empty boasts about his accomplishments which he has never delivered. Just like his role model, Trump.

You are a liar. You have no explanation. It is crap! You are a fake! You are a fraud!

YOU LOSE! EVOLUTION WINS! ADMIT IT!


What if Eleanor Roosevelt had wings? -- Monty Python

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq
