Call for links for the Tangled Bank

The Tangled Bank

Another Tangled Bank is coming up on Wednesday, 30 November, at Dogged Blog. Send those links in to the host or me soon.

If you're wondering what the Tangled Bank is, Mike Bergin has written a summary of weblog carnivals. It's basically a mechanism to spread the attention around, and direct readers away from a few well-trafficked weblogs to other deserving sites, usually with a theme—the Tangled Bank is a one-stop shop to find lots of weblogs that write about science, for instance.

PZ, you are a disgrace. You curse and harass those who don’t even agree with you. Thanks to you I lost my faith in darwinism. You can delete this letter if you want, however, be assured that I’m not the only one who feels this way.

Regards, William Watson

Creation vs evololution? i.d.in kansas? why yes just look at the people of kansas with their high rate of academic over achievers and the phenomenal number of them holding pHds and research fellowships(about 73.2 percent of the population at the last count) doesen’t that count for anything? when will these scientific unbelievers repent and come back into the bosom of old paedophile father chuch?

and they don’t even believe in god.. why only last tuesday He was drinking with me and santa claus in a little strip joint.. in kansas. just ask elvis, he was there too that night. and elvis sure wouldn’y tella lie.

heck dang chew tabaccy(note i diddin cuss willy watson)

if god is all powerful can he destroy himself? if he has always been around and there are no other gods, isn’t he bored? and if he’s THAT bored and also all knowing why didn’t he top himself way way back? because its immoral?it breaks god’s(his own) law? what was he afraid of? a higher power? like phyics?or common sense? no.there is no god,morality is man made and relative , and religions are merely myths. the universe grew. not a fan of the big bang though,thats looking at it the wrong way round.think of an incredibly large mass compressed into a few cubic miles.. a black hole.. two miles across from outside but with strong enough gravity to hold light in.. speed of light constant implies distance stretches the closer you get the centre, time slows.. whats that? an imploding universe infinitely large contained within a few cubic miles. so every black hole..

so creation isn’t even a unique event.. its ongoing.. thats why god doesn’t listen to you willy watson when you pray for the destruction of scientists and other sinners. he’s just too busy upholding a myth.

Was that actually apropos of anything, or just blowing off steam? Cos PZ really didn’t say anything that rude in his only post this thread.

Incidentally, if you had to have faith in “Darwinism” you’re better off without it. The entire point of the body of knowledge called science (which includes the field more properly known as evolutionary biology*) is that you don’t have to have faith in it. It’s a measured, unbiased attempt to draw the best possible conclusions from the available data, and to acquire the most accurate possible data to challenge these conclusions. For this reason, science tends to provide the most accurate portrayal of events, because if someone has a better portrayal then science adopts it.

* That’s right, there’s no such thing as Darwinism in science. Science has no infallible doctrines, just the current best guess. Of course, this can look very like doctrine, for sufficiently strong value of “best”.

Whoever got inside your head and told you that there was a religion called “Darwinism” needs his ass kicked.

Hey Darwin is dead do you think he would give a damn if you didn’t believe in him. Do you see how strange that is. Do you believe in Paris Hilton ? JFK ?

There is no belief required for the TOE. Do you need to believe in Ford to drive a car ?

This may come as a shock to you but whoever told you that, told you a LIE and it is just the same as calling a doctor a doctorist or God a Liar

If you believe in yourself you will believe in God and science can get on and mind its own business it doesn’t need you to believe it it because it is not a belief. It measures things, takes notes and makes deductions from which predictions can be made and it is tested and tested and tested and changed as it goes along the collected facts are presented as evidence in the “court of science” …purely secular the judges decide what is true and a precedent is built up the same as law, blind justice decided here on earth not in heaven.

Do you think God could interfere in the court ?

God does not get involved in science (unless he gets a cold…just kidding). And science doesn’t have a thing to do with god ..nothing!

That is what your church should be saying to you Do yourself a favor and get this book and relax and read it. “Old Turtle and the broken Truth” It will increase your belief in God! If it doesn’t have a look around for a better church with a real god not some jumped up monkey basher.

Priceless HHHHHahahahah !

obviously god has punished william watson by taking the vowels off his keyboard, at least I hope it’s just off the keyboard and he doesn’t speak like that now. Or maybe it was Darwin.

Nah, it mustbe god. (I hate to do this next bit..)

‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’ (censorship.. I’d bet )

p.s my keyboard is a bit dodgy when it comes to spaces but thats not god.

No. Something far more scary, far more devastating.

Dust.

And I think there might be a chilly seed in there too.
