I usually dont review pages I disagree with

Published November 12th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

I usually don’t review pages I disagree with, but I’ve stumbled this page a few times now… If methodological naturalism is to be used unwaveringly in science (which has not always been the case), then it renders the discipline potentially impotent to answer fundamental questions that it might otherwise provide insight on. Acknowledging that there are certain situations in which data may be interpreted in ways that at least suggest alternatives to ontological naturalism seems like the kind of thing that might increase interest in science. Specific ID models (if they’re to be presented at all) must only be considered based on their merits with respect to the data and their explanatory power (thus excluding young-earth creationism and FSM).

    There is no available data supporting ID and thus it has no explanatory power. The only situation where data can be interpreted to favour ID over evolution is the situation where the data is ignored.

    I wonder how many words you needed to look up to write this XD But I must say this; You can’t accidentally stumble across this page, read enought to get the gist, think “Gee, that was a big pile of crap, let me go “stumble” upon it again and read it just to make sure it really sucked as much as I thought…”

    I think he tripped on it on his way to the latest fake science convention. Happened to me too. Except i was only going to make fun of them anyways, so I just decided to stay here, cuz you guys sound like a fun group.

    Yeah, lets all never review anything we disagree with. Damn those who don’t disagree with us! What do we have to learn from them? Nothing, because we know everything, and noone can ever teach us anything. We can not profit at all from hearing diferent points of view, because ours is so superior.

    what a fucking asshole!
