Re: “S.C. education commission passes pro-creationism vote to 'teach the controversy'

Mr. Baker,

I realize that it is very difficult for creationists to read simple articles, and report them correctly. You posted a garbled bit of nonsense: " (q)"that the natural sciences need to leave room for design" (r)" Yes, it is true." "Design does remain a possibility"



The sentence you tried to "quote" was as follows;

"Yes, it is true. Design does remain a possibility, but not the type of "intelligent design" of which they speak."

The full paragraph is, "When three leading advocates of intelligent design were recently given a chance to make their case in an issue of Natural History magazine, they each concluded their articles with a plea for design. One wrote that we should recognize "the design inherent in life and the universe" (Behe 2002), another that "design remains a possibility" (Wells 2002), and another "that the natural sciences need to leave room for design" (Dembski 2002b). Yes, it is true. Design does remain a possibility, but not the type of "intelligent design" of which they speak."

Apparently you cannot even read to the end of a sentence.

Re: “S.C. education commission passes pro-creationism vote to 'teach the controversy'

"Nofaith" you must have really loved Saint Ronnie Raygun:

April 18, 1983. A suicide bomber in a pickup truck loaded with explosives rammed into the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon. Sixty-three people were killed, including 17 Americans, eight of whom were employees of the Central Intelligence Agency, including chief Middle East analyst Robert C. Ames and station chief Kenneth Haas.

Oct. 23, 1983. A suicide bomber detonated a truck full of explosives at a U.S. Marine barracks located at Beirut International Airport; 241 U.S. Marines were killed and more than 100 others wounded. Israel's Lebanese allies massacred an estimated 800 unarmed Palestinian civilians remaining in refugee camps.

Dec. 12, 1983. The American embassy in Kuwait was bombed in a series of attacks whose targets also included the French embassy, the control tower at the airport, the country's main oil refinery, and a residential area for employees of the American corporation Raytheon. Six people were killed, including a suicide truck bomber, and more than 80 others were injured.

Sept. 20, 1984. In Aukar, northeast of Beirut, a truck bomb exploded outside the U.S. Embassy annex killing 24 people, two of whom were U.S. military personnel.

Not any rightwing demands for impeachment were there? In fact, impeachment was ruled out even when Bush I and St. Ronnie were found to have sold illegal weapons to the radicals in Iran. The same radicals that armed the attacks on our people.

Yep. I did dig my old copy of Behe's "Black Box" out of the book stacks. 1998 paperback edition.

Nothing from Mr. Baker. I cannot say I am surprised.
