Re: Edging Toward Irrelevance

Why do you accept Behe at face value?

I don't, but I give him a lot of deference. It's a matter of trust. I don't trust Miller. I've read Behe's responses to Miller, and find my distrust of Miller is confirmed.

Re: Objective Deliciousness

why do find it hard to accept that I reject that one

I don't find it hard to accept that you reject them all. You seem to find it hard to believe someone wouldn't reject all of them.

Re: Edging Toward Irrelevance

Behe is a fool. Just read the transcript from the Dover trial. Talk about "egg on his face".

I guess egg is in the eye of the beholder too ...

Re: Edging Toward Irrelevance

Fixation has nothing to do with my argument so to bring it up is either naive or an attempt at obfuscation.

You're being too kind. Probably has more to do with density of cranial bone matter.

Re: Objective Deliciousness

How is morality not physical? Show me a more that exists without energy and matter. Show me a more that is relevant without a human being. Show me a more not created by man.

Re: Objective Deliciousness

So you're arguing that deliciousness has its roots outside of material reality and that there is a higher law of objective deliciousness?

Didn't make an argument. Just pointed out that the guy you are fawning over assumes what he's [more]

Re: Edging Toward Irrelevance

That means that it is very likely that after a couple of generations, the mutations Behe is talking about pre-exist in the population. The question then is what are the odds of Behe's required 2nd mutation occurring in a plasmodium that is [more]

Re: Objective Deliciousness

Deliciousness, like morality, has its basis in the physical attributes of material reality

That was horrible. "Let's assume morality is purely physical, like our sense of taste. See, nothing outside of the material reality [more]

Re: Edging Toward Irrelevance

I often wonder what psychological mechanism is at work here... Is Behe protecting a fragile ego? ...One might have to argue that Behe sees the idea that there is no divine Creator as an existential threat.

I would wager that no one has ever converted to Christ in order not to be killed. Some may begin to practice a state religion loosely based on the historic Jesus but I do not think a person can be converted to Christ to avoid bodily

Re: I would fail Abraham’s test
