Me: 11:48 PM: It's bedtime anyway here in the east
BobS - 1:21AM: I have yet to get an answer to my challenge to wattajoke.
Yeah, I must've been really stumped. Or sleeping.
BobS - I gave a direct challenge to whattajoke in my post #18. Lets see if he accepts my challenge. I have 10-1 odds layed out that he wont accept the challenge.
LOL. You want to talk about unanswered challenges? In just the last few days I have asked very simple, very direct questions of FR's leading creationists that could be answered in a few sentences and yet, none of them have bothered. Not baiting questions at all; very simple questions. But anyway back to your post 18...
I believe you should be forced out of your college dorm and be made to forcibly meet people people in their own countries.
Is that the "challenge?" Okay. I graduated college in 1985. In that time, I've been to exactly 4 foreign countries (5 if you included Canada.) I met plenty of people in those countries.
And ask them of what they think of your ideas and defend them right there. Across ~three civilisations. Pick your your places.
By "your ideas" I assume you mean... actually I don't know what you mean. If it's plain old evolutionary theory, that's hardly MY idea, but rather the accepted premise of biology of 99.9% of biologists.
If you mean for me to ask them if Darwin is somehow responsible for all Eugenics programs, racism, and the holocaust, well... that's a conversation that is just too stupid to have. On another thread, a particularly virulent creationist who has the tagline "Evolution is Satanism" and reminds us all that all science is satanic and scientists will burn in hell (etc) also claimed that WWI and WWII were caused by Charles Darwin's theory. So you see, I get tired of that whole "argument."
As for your challenge, I suppose you'll get your 10-1 odds. As if I"m going to tell my wife and kid that I have to go fly somewhere to discuss a FR thread with a guy in Zimbabwe.
"If you mean for me to ask them if Darwin is somehow responsible for all Eugenics programs, racism, and the holocaust, well... that's a conversation that is just too stupid to have.
I am not a creationist. Just go to some other countries and meet people that have in the recent past been through hell and talk about what you believe in. I lived overseas and know your personal beliefs in science are rejected. They saw the reality of what Darwin represents after enduring the results.
I'm a uW engineer and know that God exists. There is no way I can be allowed to do the math without being allowed to. Consiousness is bestowed upon us by God. What we do with it is our own free choice. This is what seperates humans from any other life form on the planet.
