Re: Ashes to ashes, ...

What methods are ID using to detect this so far undetectable creator? Why does ID seem to think it is science when it makes no effort to back its claim?

At this point I'm going to refer you to the last 14 years of posts that deal with [more]

Re: Ashes to ashes, ...

Don't think being simple makes clearing the hurdle any easier, that's all. The sword cuts both ways and its turtles all the way down on both sides of the blade.

Re: Ashes to ashes, ...

You said a tinkering god is more appealing, or at least that's what I thought I thought you said. Tinkerers tinker because it isn't right to begin with. They tinker to improve the imperfect creation.

Your Tinkerer has a lot to answer for.

Re: Ashes to ashes, ...

So fallibility makes God more appealing? Seems inconsistent with the religious models I'm aware of.

Do you find a creator implausible?

Nope. IMO there are three observations that suggest plausibility.


I appreciate your insights on this.

Re: Rehashing the last 14 years

If I do that, who will I rehash with for the 14 years?

Nigel, this may come as a huge shock to you, but I need more than that to give meaning to my life.

Re: Ashes to ashes, ...

At what point would you be willing to have your auto mechanic charge you for an exorcism to fix your car?

I'm pretty close-minded about that. Do you find a creator implausible?

With this broader definition in mind, saying that something was made by intelligence does not mean that it or the intelligent maker does not belong or is not a product of the natural universe.

I agree

That seems to be a claim that all intelligence is supernatural.

Not what I intended to imply, though I see why you think so. By "Intelligence is not a natural process" I mean intelligence is not just the operation of [more]

Re: Christian Realignment...

Opposition to classical Christianity and simmering threat of persecution will foster a new depth of meaning to the term “Evangelical Catholic.”

What is an Evangelical Catholic?

Would a noise in my attic, where no rodents or birds are found, be evidence that the source of the noise is a ghost?

Do ghosts make noises? Intelligent designers make artificial things
