Are All Anti-IDists also Intellectual Cowards? It appears that way.
1- Anti-IDists are always quick to disparage Intelligent Design, but when pressed it is obvious they don't even understand the concept. IOW they appear to be too lazy to do any actual research about the subject.
2- When pressed to support their anti-ID position so that we can compare the two, they never do.
3- Instead of staying on-topic in any thread that requests that they support their point-of-view, they hem and haw, beat-around-the-bush, but never do as requested.
4- I have asked, several times now, that the anti-IDists present a testable hypothesis based on their anti-ID position. That is present a testable hypothesis that demonstrates non-telic, ie stochastic, processes can do what they claim. Yet all I get is more nonsense, no substance and definitely no hypothesis.
5- When told that there isn't any data, scientific or otherwise, that demonstrates that the physiological and anatomical differences between land mammals and cetaceans, between chimps and humans, can be accounted for via any of their proposed mechanisms, all I get in return is a vague literature bluff- meaning the answer I get is "It's in the scientific literature. There are thousands of peer-reviewed articles that support evolution"
However evolution is not being debated. And the data I requested is not in any peer-reviewed journal- yes I have looked. If anyone thinks I am wrong the easiest way to support that claim is to find ONE peer-reviewed artcle that contains the data I requested.
6- When all else fails I get invited over to one of their discussion boards- as if they will be able to do there what they are unable to do here.
The only reason for such an invitation is that there are more monkies waiting in the trees to throw shit at anyone honestly looking for some answers.
The bottom line is their position does not make any predictions based on any non-telic, ie stochastic, process. The position can't be objectively tested.
That is why they will not answer my request. To do so would be to expose their position for what it is- faith trying to be passed off as science.
IOW the anti-IDists are nothing but intellectual cowards.
And all the above is why I will be running for my local school board in the next election. Getting these chumps in Court and forcing them to answer my request will be well worth the effort- that is if the case even goes to court. No one has yet to say anything about my presentations in area schools, so I doubt anything will change once I become a school board member.
The other reason why I want to get elected to a school board is that Lenny Flank once said that he wants to destroy ID as a politacal movement. If Lenny comes up against me he will get steamrolled and it won't be pretty.
