A Return to Triangulation (libertarion vs social right)
National Review Online ^ | 10/25/06 | David Boaz & David Kirby

Posted on 10/25/2006 11:10:46 AM PDT by Blackirish

As the Republican base fragments and Christian conservatives consider a “fast” from politics, the polling data point to a mid-term Republican thumping. Less than two weeks from now, Republicans will begin their post-mortem soul searching. And as the corpses of their House and Senate majorities grow cold, so should Karl Rove’s 2006 campaign strategy.

There is really something sad about seeing Wyatt Earp and the Lone Ranger taking shots at each other.

Well, you must have missed it when he declared me (and others, because we actually know a bit about science) to be the forces of evil, and likened himself to the Marines in Baghdad fighting against the Iraqi insurgents (again meaning me, and others). Quite frankly, I'm surprised that Silver hasn't thrown him.

... Guess what. Evolution is one of the premier sciences out there and this anti evolution nonsense makes the republicans look just plain pig ignorant.

Arguing about emotional issues also makes us look ignorant. You must accept that people have differences of opinion. Different opinions are not problems and allowing emotion to overwhelm rational debate is not helpful on any side of any issue. The coalescing of different opinions within one group is wherein we find strength and power.

Yeah, well looks to me like a lot of people see the theory of evolution as much more than mere science.

"You don't know what you are talking about" is snotty and imperious?

Maybe.

I've been called a terrorist. A nazi. A jihadist. An idolator. A commie. All these on crevo threads.

I try to stay polite, but Lord help me, I lose my patience with some people.

Libertarians seem to be libertarians until it comes to Public Schools. Then they suddenly are for a topdown, leftist, big government, education monopoly that ignores the wishes of the parents in certain matters.

Its all about indoctrination of other people's children by force of big government mandate.

So now the MSM spin comes from National Review?

Aaaargh! It's a conspiracy, I tells ya.

I said that I'd heard this to be the case, disclosed my source, said if it was untrue, I'd be more than happy to admit the error. I did not put it forth as unassailable fact. What was the main thrust of the argument? That there is a lot scientists still don't know. Is that main point true? Yes. Were the examples listed accurate? I cannot confirm them, so I'll withdraw them as examples, but maintain my original point.

Wow. Now that is some serious evasion. In a nutshell; you were absolutely wrong, and if you were wrong, you would admit that you were wrong, but you were not wrong, so you were right. Call the ACLU and put in an app! You'd fit right in!

One must toss out a lot of science, and all that that science implies and infers, to take such a ridiculously irrational position.

No you don't. You just have to assume that the Creator interfered at some point, in a way that doesn't fit the current laws of nature, and didn't go out of His way to tell us about it.

There are other explanations, but that is one of the quickest ways there.

Cheers!

Just how many doctoral dissertations" were written on the subject of Piltdown Man do you claim were written? Zero??

That is what I would guess, but it is hard to say for you are very adept at evading questions that you would have to answer directly.

So where are you on that Dimesnio? If you can call a person a liar about that topic infers you have some knowledge as to that the real answer is, but I am guessing that on that as most things, you really do not know and you hope you will not get caught in your false accusations and subsequent judgments of people.

Lame dodge boys..

Pretending to be more thick headed then you are is not a winning debating style.

What was wrong with creation being taught in the science classrooms to begin with?

""Intelligent Design" does not qualify as science, and as such it is not appropriate to teach it as a "companion" to the theory of evolution."

Thats what the ACLU and the Godless liberal left said too.

But I can see your well reasoned point that there is no political bias./ sarc.

The concept of interference would only be from our human and limited perspective. Agree?

This has little if an relevance to my previous statement.

But I can see your well reasoned point that there is no political bias./ sarc.

If you believe that "political bias" exists, then please explain how Intelligent Design qualifies as science, and explain what you believe is political bias regarding the issue.

... But I do *not* agree with calling folks who disagree names.

I think getting directly into the face of the disruptors is a way to expose them, and to negate their attempts to divide.

You know, reaching for thinly veiled insults is kinda disruptive ...
