Ho-Hum, Another Feathered Dinosaur
Last January when the most recent flap about feathered dinosaurs made the rounds (01/21/2009), we listed 18 questions that should be asked before believing the claims made about bird and feather evolution. It would be a good time to review those again (see also footnote 3). The rush to judgment and eagerness to prove dinobird evolution should raise red flags...

Not only them.
ooh...Random House American College! Nice liberal dictionary there. You could probably fetch a pretty penny for it at DU.
No thanks. I use good conservative ones.
Your propaganda vanities are getting rather annoying. Take it to church.
Whoa, he used the L word on me. Is that permitted in the scriptures?
Be sure to get a chain for that L, as I’m sure you will wear it proudly.
I see. Anyone that doesn’t agree with your propaganda is a not a Conservative. Grow up, son.
Oh, I see, if YOU don’t agree with the Christian Right—one of the central pillars of the Reagan Coalition, without which conservative Republicans can never win elections—then they should be banished from Free Republic and consigned to the church where they can talk about Judeo-Christian morality on Sunday. If you ever wondered why the conservative movement is wandering aimlessly in the desert, look in the mirror. Talk about the need to grow up!
I see you’re imagining things. Not one word you wrote has any relationship to my saying that you are narrow-minded, intolerant. The more you speak, the more intelligent people know that you still think the Earth is flat, that its center of the universe, that stars were placed on a crystal celestial sphere, and that God planted fossils on purpose to deceive humans into questioning his existence.....Hmmmmmm. Riiiiiiiiiiiiighhhhhhhhhhhhhhht. LOLZ.
I advise you to debate, rather than whimper and whine and make a fool of yourself. No credible people believe in that God pointed a finger at Earth and living creatures appeared suddenly, and no one believes the Earth is 6,000 , 10,000, or whatever-have-you years old.
Faith is fine, but when it blinds your common sense, you have become fool.
The only reason people think that conservatives or people like GGG think that is because of the lies spread about them by people like you.
It's a common evo tactic to accuse non-evos of all kinds of nonsense and then blame the non-evos for the reputation that the evos are making up and spreading about them.
And no one enjoys the kind of verbal flatulence that you seem to desire spewing. Evo’s like you pretend to speak for a large portion of society for the simple reason that you are insecure about your own beliefs (or lack thereof).
I’ve been an observer of human nature for most of my life and the thing I’ve found about the kind of ego the likes of you display is that it’s generally founded in the same stuff as is the bully on a playground: there’s something generally lacking, whether it be a bad relationship with your mother or problems with your manhood or the like.
For instance, in one single response you have proposed that GGG believes a whole host of things that are entirely unfounded. Actually, what you’ve said here are blatant lies and your comments are generally slanderous. However it’s not hard to surmise who you are by just the few words you’ve written. Your intolerance screams and the smallness of your world is evident by the juvenile nature of your weak and tasteless response.
Honestly, I’d love to debate you on the theory of evolution, but judging from what you’ve written here I’m not sure you’d have the mental capacity to argue the physical characteristics of peanut butter, much less the complexities of Creation.
Just my humble opinion. Here... I’ll sign it so you’ll have no question who posted this reply. You can use it when you start crying about being attacked by a Creationist.
“Your propaganda vanities are getting rather annoying. Take it to church.”
Missed this... and what makes you click on them? You have no control over your own will? Not a very good Darwinist, my friend.
Survival of the fittest does not bode well for one so weak.
Cool. I’m up for debate. Thanks for being sensible. Now..how to start debating with a young-Earther fundamentalist Christian that doesn’t believe in science? When we get that figured out, I’ll start pitching, but until then, its a moot point arguing or debating with you folks. And there is nothing insincere about calling a young-Earther a flat-Earther or center-of-universer because it all came from the same dogma. I’ll wait until the next stupid thread is posted to “debate”, but you’ll have to start providing evidence from your side, otherwise its not a debate.
Meanwhile, back here in reality, polls over the last generation show an ever growing proportion of America favoring biblical creation. The latest polls having been consistently showing the proportion of Americans believing in mankind being less than 10kya old is over 50%. How's it feel being in the minority? (Apparently it feels very insecure, judging from your emotional posting.)
Us conservatives get used to feeling like minorities. You should know that by now.
Yeah, I need to pull this channel off my display list so I don’t see them any more .
“Ho-Hum, Another Feathered Dinosaur”
Ho-Hum, Another GGGs post....
I understand why people come to believe in evolution after years of teaching it in the schools. However, those of us who believe in creation are not fools. I am requesting that you show respect to us, and not call us names. We need to do the same for you guys.
I’d like these discussions to show respect in both directions and stop the animosity. More light and less heat.
Shouldn’t you post these in Religion instead of News/Activism? I’m not removing news from my sidebar, so you’re going to have to expect people that disagree with your vanities to participate.
“how to start debating with a young-Earther fundamentalist Christian that doesnt believe in science?”
This in itself proves out that you cannot be debated. Your assumption that those who believe in Creation cannot possibly believe in science is the problem. God created science and we do start from the assumption there is a God. The issue with your side is you start with the assumption that God either doesn’t exist or that He has no hand in what happens in the world. As a result, your conclusions will all lead to that one premise. Based on that I completely agree that debate is useless.
So, I must assume from your statements that you are a racist who believes that Africans and American Indians are savages who are not quite as fully evolved as Europeans. After all, those ideas and Evolution all came from the same dogma. Hmmm?
Are GGG’s daddy? “Grow up, son.”?
Are you GGG’s daddy? “Grow up, son.”? (fixed)
I’m guessing Alley Oop!
So I might ask to borrow your pike to mount a head on. Don't worry, it'll be a light load! Cheers!
Lefty, you said that GGG and those who think like himWho is the flat earther and who is not? Do you also believe in global warming? Do you also believe that socialism is the way the world will prosper and mankind will advance? Do you also believe in the other ridiculous things these people teach? Think about where and who you stand beside and support. All the things these these people teach and support are similar to their theories in evolution. They are all lies that they have perpetrated to control the masses to get the world they want for us to live in. Either you agree with all their lies or not. For all their lies are totally based upon blind faith that has clouded their common sense just as their belief in evolution has.
"think the Earth is flat...and ....that no credible people believe that God pointed a finger at Earth and living creatures appeared suddenly, and no one believes the Earth is 6,000 , 10,000, or whatever-have-you years old."
Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, he must become foolish, so that he may become wise. 1Corinthians 3:18
Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 1Corinthians 1:20
but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, 1Corinthians 1:27You can be as smart and wise as you desire when it comes to things of this world, but when you speak of God, you are speaking of the One who made the rules we must live by. Let me repeat that, we, not Him must live by. God is not bound by the simplicity of our minds nor the realm to which we live, because as I said He created the laws to which we are bound by.
On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, "Why did you make me like this," will it? Romans 9:20Ultimately, you are not in agreement that an all knowing, all powerful God who has the right to do what you cannot explain. So, you use arguments that have never been proven to be accurate, supported and promoted mostly by the very individuals whom you disagree with in almost every other aspect of human existence on this planet. I can only come to the conclusion, and forgive me for being so blunt, but it comes down to your desire to put God in a box that you can understand and explain.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 1Corinthians 13:9-12When all we see and know is gone, then those who profess Christ as their Lord and Savior will understand as He does, because He will open our eyes. Then it will be for us as it was for Saul when the scales fell from his eyes and he saw the truth. We too will lose the scales that have us blinded our minds and limited us to this world of which our minds are bound.
you said that,"and no one believes the Earth is 6,000 , 10,000, or whatever-have-you years old."You are wrong sire, I like GGG, and others whom you say are none, but in reality are truly millions, also believe that God is bigger, more powerful, and more awesome than you could imagine. So in God's ability, yes He could and yes He has, made all you see and all you can understand in 6 earthly human days. There is no disputing it, because if you do? Then you dispute with God not, men.
Now when the attendant of the man of God had risen early and gone out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was circling the city. And his servant said to him, "Alas, my master! What shall we do?" So he answered, "Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them." Then Elisha prayed and said, "O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see." And the LORD opened the servant's eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2Kings 6:15-17It has been said that a mind is like an umbrella, it only works when it is open. I suggest you open your mind, and allow God to enlighten you beyond man's mere understanding of things.
If you don't like it, "What in the wide, wide world of sports" prompts you to comment? Just pass on by.
Well, if you consider comments on feathered dinosaurs as a religious topic, then I suppose you may have a point. But you better alert the editors of "Nature" and "Science".
Thank you for sharing your insights, dear brother in Christ!
Creationists and IDers have been given specific permission to post in News/Activism by the owner of FR. If you don’t like this policy, you’re barking up the wrong tree.
PS Do you get equally upset when you see articles that evangelize on behalf of Darwin’s thoroughly discredited evo-religious creation myth?
My beef is with people like you that do not believe in the abilities of God but limit Him to human views.
I have never seen an IDer post on FR. I suspect that metmom may be one but she hasn't said she is. I know that she will not (like you) declare that God in the Intelligent Designer.
What are you talking about? I post ID papers and articles all the time.
ID is evolution spiked with miracles. How does one lump YEC creationists in the same category with those that believe that humans evolved over billions of years?
You are an IDer? I didn't think you were since you had said that God was the Intelligent Designer. I think you a little mixed up on what you believe.
GGG: What are you talking about? I post ID papers and articles all the time.
Do you believe the earth is less than 10,000 years old?
That you cannot conceive of an all-powerful God and limit your perception of his deeds as "God did it" and cannot fathom a God that designed this masterful Universe and more.
I am not part of the Intelligent Design proper, but I do believe that the Universe and everything in it is the product of God’s intelligent design. As such, I am sympathetic to much of the research, and many of the arguments, advanced by ID scientists.
You sir are HIGH!
You obviously never read what I wrote in comment #78.
Oh. Then we are back to ZERO ID posters on FR. Unless metmom declares.
What do you consider the Intelligent Design proper?
As your screed would seem to demonstrate?
You are not engaging in any kind of reasonable debate. You are only demonizing an opponent. All heat, no light.
Do not answer a fool according to his folly, Or you will also be like him. Proverb 26:4That being said, I will stop trying to communicate with you, for I do not wish to be thought of as a fool like you.
It's located two blocks down from the Temple of Darwin, address unknown.
Oh, you mean things like the earth is a sphere that revolves around the sun?
