Re: Evolution and Intelligent Design

NAturalism is what is currently being imposd therefore a theory can never include intelligent design. Science (and even naturalism) is capable of detecting design. 1) Design by an alien intelligence could be detectable and is consistent with both. Perhaps we could find remnants of their machines, m...

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/notrocketscience/2011/08/31/bacteria-resisting-antibiotics-for-at-least-30000-bc/ And somehow this reference means something? Not sure what exactly. Hmm, it doesn't mean anything? 1) Organisms 30,000 yrs. old were already making antibiotic resistence long before th...

True, you don't learn much with a bunch of fellow travelers as judge and jury cheering on your every statement.

Are they arguing about the existence of anthropogenic climate change or merely the details?

Re: ID gets a pat on the back from athiest

Consider further on this point, some lowly ancient bacterial life that is dug up and found to have all sorts of antibiotic resistence for antibiotics that won't actually exist for another 30,000 years.... Antibiotic resistance is ancient Here we report targeted metagenomic analyses of rigorously au...

Re: ID gets a pat on the back from athiest

Up until today's restriction upon "science" being limited to "natural and physical science" (perhaps due to the pervasiveness of philosophical positivism ) -- "science" covered much more representing any pursuit of knowledge via intellectual enquiry. Yep it did, 150 years or so ago. I'm old, but no...

Re: New Book on the Giraffe's Neck

This little detour shows what? I kept out earlier, because I am not sure what the point is. Believe it or not, scientists are humans. Many have incredible egos. Some will deliberately misrepresent facts (Sames-Sezen), some will unconsciously fool even themselves (Pons and Fleischmann), and even more...

Re: Evolution and Intelligent Design

Oh, and one more thing. Do you accept such things as astronomy to be legitimate scientific disciplines? I know you may have answered this before, but it should be a simple yes or no answer. This is getting into the discussion you are having with Sandy, and I'll try and keep it brief. No, that discu...

Re: Climate Science

every day I read in the news that their predictions were wrong and they have to change their model to suit new information. So much for the "scientific method". The news is not a very reliable source of scientific information. And to make it more confusing, "global warming" has been replaced by "cl...

Re: Evolution and Intelligent Design

So when are you going to answer how something can be considered scientific if you can't test it? For the last time, I have addressed this question many times in the past. Obviously you are unsatisfied with my replies, so i suggest you try elsewhere in the future. In science, if you can't directly t...

Re: ID gets a pat on the back from athiest

Could it be true? Philosopher Nagel has held this position since at least 1974. It is not exactly breaking news. http://organizations.utep.edu/portals/1475/nagel_bat.pdf But just because the title of this forum is "God and Science" not "God and Philosophy", i suggest that the interested reader cons...

Re: Evolution and Intelligent Design

Again you are wrong here because my definition of the scientific method does not mean that "test it is to reproduce it". Test it stands alone and repeat it stands alone. One must first be able to test something for it to be scientific in the first place and reproducibly testable to get confirmation...

Re: Evolution and Intelligent Design

I have quoted a ton of stuff and you have not answered any of it. Most of references were to scientific papers on spatiotemporal control. I have no problems with those papers; neither does mainstream science. Many of these papers precede your discovery of this phenomenon. if you can't answer the qu...
