Skip to comments.A Return to Triangulation (libertarion vs social right)

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 Roves 2006 campaign strategy.

Glibness is Clintonian and unwelcome. You play games and that is NOT a good thing at all. Either engage in direct debate and/or discussion, or slither over to your other forum and try to impress the people over there.
That's odd, I thought you would feel the opposite way about it.
No joke nor flame--but why trash apologetics for "not being science" when it isn't even *pretending* to be science?
I would be more concerned about ID masquerading as "real science" when it is just a mishmash of poor science and poor apologetics.
Well gee, with all those wires and switches showing up on the X-ray, what do we need NMR for?
I'm not here to impress anyone, nor am I accountable to you. I'm simply here to sign the divorce papers. But first we have to talk about splitting up the albums, and you know how that can be.
I expect that NMR is intended to supplement X-ray machines, not replace them.
I'm having trouble understanding what point you are trying to make. I understand most of your sentences as they stand on their own. And it all works both ways. But what's your point?
I administer it. I don't own it.
If this is true, just say the word and I'll grant you your final papers.
Oh, and those albums, just give them away. Just give them away.
The Dems certainly do want to see the conservative movement fractured. I don't think there is any disagreement there. I've written many times on FR that conservatives and libertarians need each other, and should try to bury the hatchet. I've tried to bury the hatchet with a number of people on FR and have discovered shortly thereafter the hatchet buried between my shoulderblades. I tried to make peace with Cultural Jihad once and it turned out badly.
If we're going to stay united against the socialists, religious conservatives need to realize that modern biology isn't the enemy. None of us are "evolutionists". I don't "believe" in evolution in the religious sense. Calling us darwin-idolaters and evilutionists plays into the hands of the Dems, because it helps them portray the conservative movement as the party of luddites. I agree that some of the secular conservatives around here need to be more respectful of the beliefs of the religious conservatives. I try to be respectful of people's faith. I am not without some measure of faith myself.
slither over to your other forum and try to impress the people over there.
So Thou Shalt Not Have Other Forums, lest you be regarded as unworthy of the one true one? Is that what it's all about?
FGS! Go read some of your own posts. You play head games with religious posters --- asking them to PROVE the Ten Commandments are God's words.
Let me rephrase my original post, with background, in case I explained it poorly.
Somehow this thread got embroiled in a crevo food fight. It came up that a number of pro-evo's got ticked off (for various reasons, some of which I have heard about, some of which are over my head).
Jim Robinson (founder of FR) pointed out that as the founder of the site he had the right to ban people. Exactly right. As evidence of the "bad faith" (so to speak) of *some* of the evos, he posted links to Darwin Central in his post 655 of this thread.
I clicked his links and READ the posts by some people who have recently posted opuses, or who are still posting. Many of them were being disdainful of FR, or of the conservative movement, or the Republican party, because they disagreed with the influence of "anti-science" types. Some of the posts said so in so many words, some of the posts merely commiserated.
In other words, I was basing it on what I read tonight on DC, not on any notion that FR is the largest portion of the Republican Party.
Full Disclosure: I will not mention names, but a number of the explicitly pro-evo people have FReepmailed me saying they would miss talking to me, or even inviting me to join them on DC. Only a couple of the staunch atheists have ever tried to call me a troll...and I think that that was out of frustration that I was able to logically defend a limited position--they weren't used to that.
So I'm a class of '04 n00bie.
I was invited by Freeper adam_az, and did not come on as part of any project of infiltration, whatever other reputation the FReeper class of '04 might have :-(
Though there are now many different forums within FR, it is still primarily a CONSERVATIVE POLITICAL FORUM.
Right, like the Hobbit Hole, or Word of The Day...as long as it has Jim's blessing, and God's :-) (and is done in a spirit of amity). I wish the crevo threads had been more civil--and that the pro-evo folks had taken more time to talk to their audience at a beginner's scientific level. They'd have made more friends that way.
You have an Anti -Freeper forum,hello.
