Where is the evidence?

Published April 7th, 2013 by Bobby Henderson

Here’s a video that has been making the rounds.   Richard Dawkins shows great patience in interviewing Creationist Wendy Wright.  I find it painful to watch but also fascinating.

    That woman is so boring that she should be convicted for reducing ppl’s attention span to pulp. Mind, if she didn’t no-one would agree with her.

    Plus her neck tendons have a life of their own that’s as freakingly fascinating as the way her head bobs around like an anchorless boat.

    A whole hour of that? You’re out of your mind.

      Clearly, she is some sort of mechanism that failed the Turing test. Artificial Stupidity.

        @c’tain, dya now what, you’re starting to annoy me (just a figure of style r so2spk, I vr mch like learning things, ta).
        Earlier on I had to look up Malleus Maleficarum, thought it was something closely related to bad hearing – which certainly applies here – only the maleficarum looks downright suspicious. You got weeeiiird reads for sure.
        Now it’s touring test r possibly turning test, both of which also apply to that, er, who man? Turning test definitely fits the head movements perfectly. As for touring, it does takes us on a tour but there sure isn’t enough doubloons on earth and/or at sea to get me on that boat.
        Also, I don’t think ‘stupidity’ applies there: the word is too humanoid for that thing. I can show you any day a cow that’s better fitted for talking religion, and I ain’t even taking the piss while saying that one. I’m ready to bet the same for trees, bound to be more intelligent than that.

          I suspect the folks of Salem had several well-used copies of the book.
          The Turing Test is when a machine, in conversation, can convince a human that it is human (not including the bulging hydraulics that you spotted).

        • basicdesign says:

          “The Turing Test is when a machine, in conversation, can convince a human that it is human”: got that much from wikipedia’s introduction to the corresponding article. A Turing test on that one can only have one result : it be declared to be the mechanical one. I just can’t bring meself to say ‘her’, doesn’t feel right at all. And not just because of hydraulics. The talk as well is just not right. You know how they do it: take a whole picture, stick a magnifying glass over one bit of it and pretend it’s the whole lot. And when you tell them, “er, sorry but something’s missing”, they go mirror-like and tell you it’s your brain missing (and not theirs). Artificial stupidity is what they do to the rest of us.

        • Captain Birdseye says:

          Basicdesign, we are entering a new era of Artificial Intelligence, where laws are already being drafted to protect such machines from cruelty and even rights for sexbots that people may wish to marry.
          Must run, Mrs. Birdseye has blown a fuse.

      • basicdesign says:

        Just had another (quick) check. Yep, stupidity definitely doesn’t fit it. I wish it were just that. I mean, you seen her eyes? I’ve worked with druggies for some 20 yrs, there weren’t that many who looked gone as far out as this one looks and at least they, had an excuse for it. To tell the truth, this one freaks me out. For starters I’m positive it ain’t human. And among non-humans it looks like one of them dummies that one no-cool race sometimes puts up as pre-invasion decoys. yyyeeekk.

    Sounds like someone skipped science class in High school. I laughed so hard I woke up my kid. This only serves to prove that she is the closed minded one. Sadly, this is normal in most Christian churches. Went to Synagogue once with a Jewish friend, and the Rabbi spent an hour talking about how God designed evolution as a way to create the perfect species. “The process is an on-going one, thank Our Father.”

    • Captain Birdseye says:

      Caleb, ask a biologist for a single piece of hypothetical evidence that would falsify Evolution and they would offer something like: ‘Finding a fossil rabbit in a coal seam’. Try asking a Creationist what it would take to falsify Creation and expect incoherent rhetoric. Laughter is the best response.
      To be fair to the rabbi, at least he didn’t claim that Evolution and Abiogenesis were the same subject, but, his undefined ‘Creator’ is just as likely to be The FSM – May He Rest in Pesto.

    • Keith says:

      The perfect species? Dare I invoke Godwin’s Law if I see the irony in a Rabbi talking about the perfect species?

      • Captain Birdseye says:

        Oooh, perfect as in master race?

        • Keith says:

          Tweeet! Discussion over.

    As one of the most popular pairs of shoes in the Air Jordan series, the Air Jordan 4 will celebrate its 30th birthday next year. Jordan Brand has frequently released all kinds of re-enactment and new color schemes, not only the return of the classic OG color matching such as “Bred” black red, “Fire Red” flame white red, etc. The highly acclaimed Flyknit material version is also said to be Will be applied to Air Jordan 4.

      Spammers should have their fingers removed; or is that a bit harsh?

      • Keith says:

        They’d just find some other body part to pound the keyboard with. Don’t think about it too hard.

  4. Apprentice Frederic says:

    Keith, you must know the song that goes “…wrap it ’round the bedpost; slam it in the door…” ???

    • Captain Birdseye says:

      Yes, AF, but, did they say what ‘it’ is? Did they mention revolving doors?

    • Keith says:

      AF: no, I’ve never heard of it. I tried looking it up but I keep getting references to The Doors, which is rather irritating.
      My dad used to sing a snatch of a song about taking off your skin and dancing around in your bones but I daresay that has nothing to do with it.

    It is always joyful to know a mysterious fact. i really enjoy here

    yess… GATE Electrical Notes

    I feel like they where both being roosters neither backing down if they had taken a moment to just go “I don’t understand could you please help me do so” also they just kept repeating the same things over and over again it actually sounded quite stupid.
