Intelligent Design

Congratulations to the UD News Desk

Spread the love

This is Thanksgiving week here in the United States, and one of the things for which we at UD are most thankful is our News Desk.Β  UD’s mission statement statement and goal is “serving the intelligent design community,” and nowhere is that goal accomplished more than through the News Desk’s tireless efforts, especially the efforts of our foremost news hound, Denyse O’Leary.

We would like to take a moment to recognize that last Friday the News Desk published its 10,000th article.Β  Congratulations and well done!

    Ditto. Denyse manages to pull out the most interesting stuff from all sorts of obscure places. That’s exactly what journalists should be doing!

    Thank you, Barry and Dionisio! Dionisio is quite right to recognize KF and GPuccio, as well as DLH and our many other contributors you come to this site to read.

    I’d also like to recognize Rob Sheldon, Laszlo Bencze, Noel Rude, Lee Spetner – and many others who will come to mind immediately after I hit Post Comment. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks to them and all others who have permitted me to post their thoughts with or without attribution.

    And to the tipsters. Real news desks thrive on tipsters, not PR agencies.

    Just this from me: The internet changed everything. Today, most people can find out most things they want to know. That took a load off established news sources and they have used their freedom to become much more partisan.

    Increasingly, you will hear news that you care about from non-establishment sources like ours.

    In your own interests, keep the internet free. Read widely and keep an open mind. And support the news sources you feel you need. – Denyse O’Leary

    Consider: What did you learn from the New York Times about how much trouble Darwinism is in, with respect to evidence about evolution? How much did you learn from UD? Or other non-establishment sources?

    Read the Times, read us. But if you want to know what is going on, better you read us.

    Thanks, Denyse. I don’t comment much anymore, but I check in a couple of times per week, and I always enjoy reading what I fail to find anywhere else.

    Keep it coming. Happy Thanksgiving.

    CannuckianYankee @10:

    In your own blog you mentioned the tragic case of persons who officially despised the scriptures that include the absolute law that forbids killing another person, because they hated the absolute law giver. Ironically, they were killed by other people who agreed with them in principle but also hated them. However, according to their own rules, which state that there’s no absolute right or wrong, their murderer wasn’t right or wrong.

    A reminder of Pangur BΓ‘n? πŸ™‚

    (translated from the Irish by Robin Flower)

    I and Pangur Ban my cat,
    ‘Tis a like task we are at:
    Hunting mice is his delight,
    Hunting words I sit all night.

    Better far than praise of men
    ‘Tis to sit with book and pen;
    Pangur bears me no ill-will,
    He too plies his simple skill.

    ‘Tis a merry task to see
    At our tasks how glad are we,
    When at home we sit and find
    Entertainment to our mind.

    Oftentimes a mouse will stray
    In the hero Pangur’s way;
    Oftentimes my keen thought set
    Takes a meaning in its net.

    ‘Gainst the wall he sets his eye
    Full and fierce and sharp and sly;
    ‘Gainst the wall of knowledge I
    All my little wisdom try.

    When a mouse darts from its den,
    O how glad is Pangur then!
    O what gladness do I prove
    When I solve the doubts I love!

    So in peace our task we ply,
    Pangur Ban, my cat, and I;
    In our arts we find our bliss,
    I have mine and he has his.

    Practice every day has made
    Pangur perfect in his trade;
    I get wisdom day and night
    Turning darkness into light.

    Congratulations, Denyse. I admire your encyclopaedic mind, in combination with that ‘light touch’ that you express in a wry humour.

    I am very thankful for Denyse, the UD website, and the entire UD community.
