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).

    (Anna – sorry, just realised my last post could be misread. I meant ‘Same as I’ve just said to Alchemist to you’ Wasn’t trying to be rude! Note to self – practice unambiguous brevity…)

    I was going to post under the hate mail with all the oar action, but couldn’t get past my anger to do so. I did read a lot of your responses and was encouraged. The article on home-schoolers really freaked my freak.
    I just wanted to say thanks!! to all of you who have posted here and then do a little bow and an “I’m not worthy!”
    I have definitely converted to the FSM religion, as long as that does not mean that I have to give up fetticine alfredo.
    So, again, thanks a million for being here and for bringing the FSM to people everywhere.

    Welcome to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster! We know you’ll like it here!
    And, no, you don’t have to give up pasta. To consume it is to come closer to the FSM, and true enlightenment. Plus pirates are cool. ARRGH!!

    @ Whatsinaname.
    I am also a recent convert. It was the beer volcanoes that did it for me (the stripper factory was a plus too, but as a liberal I have to pretend to be disguised, I mean disgusted). What the hell is ” fetticine alfredo ” I ask only as an English meatball -for scientific reasons.
    Those bloody hobnobs want to go out again – I tell you, don’t breed biscuits, they’re more trouble than they’re worth! OK I’m coming, oh, not on the tv……

    Thanks…I love it here! I am glad to hear that I do not have to give up the fetticine…I knew there was a reason that I feel so happy when I eat it!

    Fetticine alfredo=noodles in a creamy sauce, sometimes garnished with parsley…mmm…
    We get strippers, too? Dang, where was this religion when I was 19?!?

    Wow, too many big words for my attention span.
    J– I like your long posts. Even when I can only figure out every other word or so.
    Alchemist–Fetticine alfredo=heaven on this earth.
