Natural Science 301 Guidelines

This is an open forum area for all members for discussions on all issues of science and origins. This area will and does get volatile at times, but we ask that it be kept to a dull roar, and moderators will intervene to keep the peace if necessary. This means obvious trolling and flaming that becomes a problem will be dealt with, and you might find yourself in the doghouse.

As usual, Tweb rules apply. If you haven't read them now would be a good time.

    Yes, we've strayed quite a way from the thread topic, if that's what you mean. That's kind of typical for long threads...

      Actually no. I would like to stay on the topic and wait for you to address the original issues of the thread which you failed to do.

      In favt in the early posts you advocated compromising the integrity of Methodological Naturalism to include subjective theological questions that cannot be addressed in science. Your shifting the the discussions to theological issues has been your problem.

        Talking about the need for it in an abstract manner hardly counts and they've been promising something on this for 30 years now and are still standing at the starting line.

        Relying on unsupported assumptions and cherry picking data, to be generous.

        Which would still be rather pathetic. But even there at best a couple have dipped their toe in the water and quickly pulled back.

          And the point of that?

          I've presented clear evidence that people are living within the area that was once enclosed by Babylon's walls. You seem to be waving your hands around and hoping to distract people.

              Wow, you really are quite the troll, aren't you?

                • Why is anyone surprised? Even his hoped for distraction regarding ancient cities sort of blew up in his face on him.

                    I guess i just naively expect people to live up to the standards of the beliefs that they proclaim to be motivated by.

                        Sad but true. I'd like to think that my past failings have given me a bit of humility, though. And the wisdom to try to avoid making my future failings on a public discussion board...
