Well, Sal, it was nice meeting you, and I would have loved to be able to talk more with you. Perhaps next Wednesday. jaredl
Have already read Woodward's book--as also his first one on the history of the movement. And just yesterday Behe's latest arrived via Amazon--read the first chapter last night. All great stuff! What a time to be young! Rude
OFF topic (don't know where to post this kind of stuff here): but FYI: article at the BBC that claims "Upright walking 'began in trees'" "Susannah Thorpe, Robin Crompton and Roger Holder came to their conclusions after analysing the movement of wild orangutans, which spend most of their lives in trees." The say, "The logical conclusion from the environmental, fossil, and experimental evidence is that upright, straight-legged walking originally evolved as an adaptation to tree-dwelling." Note: Whenever a Darwinist says, "experimental evidence" remember that what they mean is "we have some data, this is the way we our faith says to interpret it". "The big problem is: what was the selective advantage for that first hominid that stood upright?" Daniel Lieberman, Harvard University There it is, the expected Darwinist buzz-phrase "selective advantage". It's the only explanation they know - having ruled out all others before the data ever appeared. The usual presumptions are being made in this story, without which nothing they say makes any sense. Yes, the same usual presumptions that are themselves without any empirical foundation. The standard Darwinist take-it-by-faith dogma. Indeed, it never ceases to amaze me the lengths of blatant, self-inflicted narrow mindedness Darwinists will go to pander their primitive science wares. The BBC science/nature section is crammed with this kind of poppycock. Thank God for the Dembski's, Behe's etc of this world. A good flow of new books keeps the debate advancing against the lies of Darwinism. Borne
It looks like "Edge of Evolution" is going to start a lot of debates that will center around whether Behe's math is valid. Should be interesting. Jehu
Be sure to post when they are coming to Seattle. Mung
Darwinists started their "scholarly" reviews and, of course, personal attacks and insults. http://scienceblogs.com/goodmath/2007/05/behes_dreadful_new_book_a_revi_1.php IDist
Darwin Strikes Back is excellent. I can't wait to get a hold of Behe's new book. In fact, I'm going to order it right now. Forthekids
No worries Sal, you amaze me with all the separate blogs you contribute to, comment on, and create. I wonder how you have any time left for your studies! Atom
Atom, You're a life saver! Btw, sorry I haven't gotten around to Lee Spetner's material. Too manythings on the plate right now. Sal scordova
BTW Sal, typo: parites = parties. Atom
Already ordered and shipped from Amazon. :) Atom
I can't wait to read Behe's book. IDist
Sal, I plan to be there for both; feel free to introduce yourself! jaredl
