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.

    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...

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

    The usual response when you cannot respond to the subject and the science of the thread.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I can't believe that, in addition to explaining biology to you, i also have to explain how to use Google Maps.

    And my view is that you seem to interpret which happened when based on whatever is convenient for your current argument, rather than any firmly held underlying principles.
