Uncommon Descent Serving The Intelligent Design Community

A Commendation of ellazimm and Dr Elizabeth Liddle

arroba Email

I wish to publicly commend UD commenters ellazimm and Dr Elizabeth Liddle for their seriousness, civility, responsiveness in dialogue, and general positive tone.

We need more objectors like these ladies. And, I hope that, increasingly, we will have them.

Ladies, well done.   END

EZ and EL: I hear you, and appreciate the concern. We just lost my Mom in law (a retired nurse who was living in the UK as a volcano refugee) to the same complaint. A wicked disease, wish we had a real cure for it. Anyway, let's not spoil your weekend, I hope the tea went well. GEM of TKI kairosfocus
Yes indeed. It must be one of the most difficult things to have to face. I lost my mother to a series of strokes, but she never lost her sense of who she was, mercifully (just where she was!) I still miss her deeply, 12 years on. I wish you and your mother all the best. Lizzie Elizabeth Liddle
KF: I'm so sorry for you and your mother. You've got a long hard road ahead. ellazimm
It's much more fun programming for people who actually find it interesting. News
Mung: I guess you were being satirical. Women are more than half the population, and have a lot to say that is significant about many things. I deeply miss being able to have a serious conversation with my mom, due to steadily advancing Alzheimer's. And, I am carrying on HER genes. GEM of TKI kairosfocus
aw shucks :o Thanks - I've really appreciated the civility I've met here too :) Cheers Lizzie Elizabeth Liddle
Sorry kf, but if they can't carry my babies I'm not interested. The only reason I talk to females of my own species is in expectation of passing on my genes. Mung
EZ: And, the same to you. GEM of TKI kairosfocus
Thank you kairofocus. I really appreciate all the people who have taken so much time being very patient with me, not only this last couple of weeks but in previous times I've participated in this forum. I feel that when you really listen to other people you learn to understand and respect them. And when it comes to dealing with difficult social or scientific issues mutual understanding and respect are more likely to lead to a mutually agreed upon resolution. And I do now better understand the subtle nature of some of the Intelligent Design arguments. I understand better what ID is and is not. AND I see my own position differently as well. By spending time looking at ID, trying to figure it out, I have been forced to examine why I believe the way I do. I do apologise for getting lots of things wrong and not being able to better explain some of the answers I have given to questions directed at me. I need to spend more time understanding my own 'camp'! I shall continue to contribute when I think I've got something worthwhile to add but I shall endeavour not to waste your time with things you already know or arguments I can't back up. :-) I know, I know, that may mean I'm very, very quiet from now on!! hahahahahahahhahaha Keep the faith, enjoy the weekend and honour those who have given their lives so that we have the freedom to do what we're doing here. ellazimm
