    You mean you would have to read my post and understand it? That no doubt is annoying - and challenging, evidently.

    That might require you to get off your hobbyhorse and out of your echo chamber. can't have that.

    What really annoys you is being disagreed with, that and not being held in the high regard that you hold yourself in.

    Again, you argument seems to be "I am a very impressive person, and if you do not agree with me I will bludgeon you with insults." This is not discourse. This is egoism.

    That is what is so comic about the evos around here: They think they are "deep scientific thinkers" when I doubt that any of them have even worked in even third tier institutions. I doubt that you have worked in one of any tier.

    This amuses: "Toodles." Is that suppose to be clever? Dismissive?

    Do you imagine that I am hanging out here looking for your approval?

    Too funny.

    You know I just got back from a meeting at CERN (tech not science) and twerpish, mediocre and prickly little egoists like you would literally be shown the door in about a half a hour over yonder, and yet you think that you are dealing with "issues of the highest levels of import to civilization," or some such blather. Really, no one that matters is listening to your little echo chamber.

    A nerve? No, I must have hit your spinal cord.

    Too funny

    You should listen to yourself - you think that is reasoned discourse? Just more invective, hand waving and psychobabble.

    Again, nothing substantive.

    let me repeat myself:

    But drop me a note when you have something meaningful to say, just spare me the hectoring, please. It does not have the effect on of me that you evidently are looking for.

    It is just nettlesome, I doubt that you could insult me.

    Oh, an inclusive, "plural" use of the English pronoun "You" is quite acceptable, as you should well know. My meaning is clearly stated by my phrase:

    Really, you evos and IDers.

    Honestly.

    You are just proving my point about how "you people" (perhaps you would prefer "Youse guys") with all of these attacks on anyone that disagrees with "you"in any form whatsoever. "You" may chose not to believe me, but "the public" finds this irksome. But go ahead, perhaps they will find "you" as impressive as you find "yourselves." (Note the plural usage here.)

    You know, if you actually worked in an real, professional scientific institution and tried this tactic, you would get fired.

    But then you would not know about that, now would you? (now here I mean it in the singular)

    Looks like I struck a nerve - more hysteria and mortification, I see.

    This is not substantive response, nor does it address my points. It is just blathering informed by little else that egoism. That ego is the driver is amply demostrated by that fact that you somehow think that i was merely addressing you and what you said when it was quite clear who I was talking about ansd where my focus was directed.

    Prior postings of your is rather off point. There is nothing to respond too as there is nothing in this response but personal attacks and psychobabble.

    But drop me a note when you have something meaningful to say, just spare me the hectoring, please. It does not have the effect on of me that you evidently are looking for.

    Yes, but I would argue that archeology and anthropology are not really "sciences." They are really in the Humanities.

    Archeology, a field that I have immense respect for, strikes me as a sort of "applied historical study" which is richly informed by Science, and in general, the "hard sciences."

    Anthropology, a field that I have some real problems with almost seems to me to be a form of literature, a form of literary conjecture, or perhaps a "preliterate philology" of illiterate cultures (an awkward phrase and concept, I know.) One could say that is is a "Social Science" which is, of course, to say that it is not a science at all, at least from my point of view.

    I have a lot of trouble with anthropology, but occasionally these people put out some interesting stuff. I am just not sure that we need a "science" called "anthropology to get these writings.

    Really. That is exactly what occurred to me.

    It does bing up the point that Putin (along with other enemies in the world) would not feel half so cocky as he does without the continual attacks of the Democrats. We must at this point really at least consider that the Democrat obstructionism goes beyond narrow and thoughtless political gain for their party. It is beginning to openly verge on treason.

    These utterances when placed along side the recent war games with China, the SCO nonsense in the CIS and China's offer of military assistance to Iran, bodes ill.

    I have done neither, and you know it. Her position is absurd on the face of it.

    You are merely taking sides based on gender, not on any other "principle." Your retort is as childish and it is off point.

    I have asked for cogent discussion from "doodle" and have not gotten it. Instead I received what can only be described as willful obtuseness interspersed with ill conceived gobbledygook, and this gobbledygook she has used to literally heckle people on this thread. She in no way meaningfully response to post directed at her.

    In any event, it is none of your business.

    If you have a substantive point, please make it. Otherwise spare me your "refereeing." It is completely uncalled for and out of line. She is big girl.

    What no one in the media seems to want to mention is that most of the "Rising Sun" agitprop -for that is what it truly was - occurred during the Administrations of Reagan and Bush Senior.

    Notice that soon after Clinton came to power the reporting here changed.

    Oh I believe you, and am gratified, believe you me.

    I was making a smaller point. I do not doubt that there are high quality people in the service, and I absolutely do not think that to attain this level one has to be from the Ivies or even go to college (I went to a couple of Ivies, and I have taught in them, so I know first hand of what I speak.)

    I am just making the point that it is amazing to see people from that background go in, that is all.

    Your assertion goes far beyond education,

    If fact it is cognitively, intellectually, socially and politically impossible to have "freedom from religion,"

    Our entire internal world, our civilization and our political foundations are deeply shaped and informed by it. Too suggest otherwise is just preposterous, and a thoroughly narcissistic and solipsistic understanding of what civilization is, or what the human is.

    Likewise you notion of "choosing your children's private education is both spurious and specious.

    1) Why should parents be forced to withdraw from public schools rather than decide to change them? Are the not coerced in to supporting them? Are they mere serf? hardly seems democratic or "public" to me.

    2) There are no value neutral curriculum - they do not exist in a vacuum. Some group of people decide these things, and that group promotes its own believes and agenda. It is intellectually dishonest to suggest otjherwise, and it is arrogant for you to imagine that you have the right to foist your believe system on others without any political form or political outcome.

    3) Secular humanism and Socialism are really just other belief systems and apply a quasi-supernatural mandate to their core beliefs as well. "Socialist man," Scientific materialism, "Scientism" or even the efficacy of reason as an ultimate moral arbiter are no less mystical or religious assertions than a belief in the Virgin Mary, and a great deal more harmful, I might add. Nothing could be clearer from the history of the 20th century.

    4) In principle, no, parents cannot chose if there are economic. geographic or logistical limitations placed on them. This is a particularly specious formulation, and for obvious reasons.

    5) You assume that your position is the majority position birth nationally and regionally. I fail to see how this is so.

    So, based on what you have articulated, I find you position faulty in its whole and its parts, and not a serious position whatsoever.

    Nonsense, the Constitutional provision for freedom of religion gauenttes no such thing, and your assertion does not logically follow in the least, nor is it supported by the historical record. I challenge you to prove otherwise

    You are just throwing out pseudo intellectual gobbledygook, and when you are called on it you just want to throw a little tantrum about it. You are engaged in the philosophical equivalent of stopping your heels. That might have worked with Daddy, but that does not work in th real world at all.

    There is no thought with out metaphysics, and there is not civilization without ethics.

    Your fellow citizens will have their say, get used to it, sister. You need to understand that, as you need to get over your self importance - what do you think, you just pontificate and everyone that disagrees with you just goes away?

    Too bad about that ego of yours - the immaturity too.

    I did not mean to call anyone a liar, ans I should not have worded my comments the way I did. I am just distrusting of media in general these days, and for good reason too.

    What I really meant to say was that if these are not just isolated cases then my faith in the nation is restored.

    I have no doubt that the Corp can find people, that really does not surprise me. I am surprised to see Ivy Leaguers of the current day go into to any of the services at all.

    That is really not a comment on them - rather it is a comment on the environment which has nurtured.

    You can bet that kids like these have had multiple "counselors" and "role models" try very hard to talk them out of this.

    BTW, I see where Pataki's kid (his youngest?) took a commission in the Corp this summer. That surprised me. His parents actually look proud about it. Imagine that.

    What if they were wearing identifiable Jewish clothing and were the only ones in the place that were doing so. What if it was just descriptive.

    And beside, why should this be illegal, particularly in a privately held business.

    Shall the government now regulate descriptions of customers? How will this be enforced?

    Should the "PB police" regularly monitor businesses hard drives for "illegal descriptions?" You reaction is absurd and straight out of the liberal play book.

    And why all the consternation? If they had said "The Wasp couple in the corner" would we hear such outrage? No.

    Instead we would be told that that was an apt description.

    In any event, have the AG involved is just preposterous, and we know just what the motivation behind it is.

    Even with the right bloodlines and disposition, dogs will fail in a protector roll of they are not given a great deal of training. Part of that training requires that the dog be submitted to physical attack. JUst ask and K9 trainer or Shutzhund hobbyist.

    The vast majority of people that think that there dogs will protect them are quite mistaken about this. It is not for want of trying on the dogs part, but when a professional crook , a drug addict or a deranged person gets physical with the average dog the odd are that the dog will back down.

    They will warn and scare off the coward and the amateur, but they will do little else.

    Well I am not sure it is BS, it is just poorly cast as an argument.

    It is really a epistemological criticism of Macro evolution, and they have some points from this angle.

    The real problem, of course is that much of the evo argument cannot be really be approached from the empirical, experimental methodology that can be found in the so-called "head science" (which from my point of view is really science proper,) while at the same time the Evo side want to claim the surety of "hard science." I really think that some areas of Biology were if fact better characterized by our forebears as "Natural Philosophy."

    I see a lot of rhetorical and philosophical hanky panky on both sides, and some of it seems to be even unwitting. I imagine if this get thrust into public scrutiny this will come to the fore and the whole argument will shift completely. You evos might be surprised at the outcome and who you end up arguing against.

    My background is in Mathematics and Philosophy, and from that viewpoint, I find much of the claims of much of what we call "science" on today's campuses do have some dubious value, and built on some methodologically unsound footings.

    You people imagine that all educated people are scientist, or buy the claims of science without analysis.

    In this the IDers have sensed something: You too have a "religious" bent as well.

    The public sense this as well. or so it seems to me.

    You give some of your own prejudices away here by somehow implying that the "blue state voter" is somehow more intelligent that the "red stater." The admission is as striking as it is inadvertent

    Evos to not seem to grasp the broader implications outside of science that the IDers somehow intuitively grasp, and those implications need to be addressed, though perhaps the conflict between the two sides here is not the place to do so.

    Well if that is the issue then ID would not matter anyway, now would it.

    Really, you evos and IDers overestimate the publics concern over this all of this.

    What if the Pope cam out for ID? What would that do?

    Besides, you make it sound like the Dem's tack on the stem cell issue has that much traction. Bush's position is pretty reasonable here, and most people seem to agree with it when they actually find out what it is.

    On one have you seem to be saying that the public will side rationally with the eveo side because they "rational, logical positivists" and on the other you seem to be saying that they can be "bludgeoned" with rhetoric, and "tempted with eternal life" (a pretty silly formulation - and a demeaning estimation of the American people, BTW) You cannot have it both ways, it would seem to me.

    Believe me, having high school kids in Kansas spend two weeks hearing about ID is not going to move us "back to the dark ages," or somehow "stop bioscience<" and you evos do not help your cause with this sort of hysterical "warnings."

    Do you really think the voter believe that this will keep them "from eternal life?"

    Do you really think that the voter is so stupid to buy all the outrageous claim coming out from the stem cell crowd, when it is pretty obvious that they are yet again rattling a cup? We have been through the "War on Cancer" and the "War on AIDS," but to little avail. This aspect of the Evo argument seems pretty childish from the outside looking in. As the teacher lobby has begun to be seen as just another interest group at the trough, so do scientist risk this perception the more they are seen as political actor.

    Perhaps the Left will be successful here, but it will be a phyrric victory in the end. The self-ipmortant posturings of the Earth sciences crowd, the evo crowd, the gay is biological crowd. the diverity crowd, etc is wearing a little thin. When we have Harvard taking the wholly irrational view that the problem with a "manpower" shortage is some how solved by "empowering women scientist" is is profoundly hard to take the academy seriously when one hears their cries about "the sanctity of science."

    I think that you are falling for the Left's notion that they are they "rational; and scientific" ones when they are in fact pretty full of gobbledygook themselves. In fact, ID seems pretty mild here compared to what the left has been up too for years.

    As someone with no dog in this fight, I will tell you that the stridency and seemingly mortification of you evos becomes you little in the public square.

    It just goes to show that it is not just the Left that has contempt for "the public."

    In the end the American people will chose correctly given and honest means of doing so.

    I saw some contributions to The Nation in there too.

    Let the market drive broadband.

    Internet2 is humming away at 19gig on the backbone. I expect that we will see 24mbs on landlines in the urban markets in the next 5 years. I do not know enough about leading edge wireless to make a meaningful prediction, but you can get 700kbs right now in the metro markets.

    Again, I really wonder about these studies as they make no real sense to me. I still say it is a combination of trying to portray the bush administration as some sort of retrograde force for the nation, and a desire to sock the taxpayer for some bucks.

    In the early part of the Clinton Administration they tried this with the "information highway" nonsense.

    The truth is that the private investor got bilked into paying for this, and a great many investors lost their shirts over this one.

    Liberals cannot seem to put forth any idea without first trying to create a crisis and/or finding a "villain" or too.

    Right now we are seeing the socialist in the EU really pushing GRID Computing. They think that competeively they "missed" the internet the last time around. They want to actually pay companies to use publiclly contrcuted GRID. The science genuises at Brussels have decided that this is "the next big thing." How are these con clusions reached? What if they are wrong? (Comically,it is american tech firms that are getting all the bucks and reaping the rewards of all the research.)

    Look a the fiasco g3 was to the European telecoms (and new wireless tech like EVO is making that obsolete.

    You know, the state of Iowa spent million hoking up all their public libraries a while ago, now of course there is cheap DSL all over the place.

    Government planning rarely works.

    It is particularly comic when we are talking about the Internet, for no one ever omagined that it would take off like it has (well ohre than a few visionaries like Alan Kay.)

    It would certainly be dishonest of government types to claim otherwise.

    You know, DARPA and Co. is undertaking a complete redesign of TCP/IP to accommodate mobile "self-organizing" networks.

    I would not be surprised to see the whole concept of the Internet as we know it to be obsolete in another 15 years.

    It was probably the slang I used that confused you.

    What ticks me off about the continuing insurgency and MSM coverage...is that it seems to be happening because the President doesn't want to say we're being blackmailed by nukes.

    Huh? You have any proof for that? Seems to me that if our foe were in a position to use Nukes it would do so.

    Has it occurred to you that major military action before the Iraqis vote on their constitution might not be all that helpful?

    I also do not recall any promise to get the troops out by the 06 elections.

    The GOP would be better served by ignoring the MSM and take their case back to their own constituents.
