    (Barbarian suggests that creationists show where Walt predicted rocks on comets before Carl Sagan did in the 1970s)

    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Predictions are the currency of science.

    Thirteen years ago, it was predicted that most of the rocks (pebble-sized and larger) comprising asteroids and comets will be found to be rounded to some degree. This rounding was predicted based on the Hydropate theory, in which the rocks tumbled and were eroded in the fountains of the great deep.

    With the first close-up images of a comet becoming available only recently and showing what have been dubbed "dinosaur eggs," rounded rocks of 1m to 3m in diameter, this is what we call a successful prediction.

    Which is why the evolutionists are desperate to avoid the topic, or talk about something, anything, else.

    No documentation? Looks like another Walt tumbleweed, rolling by. Walt is the guru of post-hoc "predictions."

    All the rock we've seen in space has been rounded to some degree. Walt took another known fact, and "predicted" it.

    It would be interesting to see what Walt said about it, and when, but I'm guessing we're not going to see that.
    In another description of his view on the concept of God, Sagan emphatically writes:

    The idea that God is an oversized white male with a flowing beard who sits in the sky and tallies the fall of every sparrow is ludicrous. But if by God one means the set of physical laws that govern the universe, then clearly there is such a God. This God is emotionally unsatisfying ... it does not make much sense to pray to the law of gravity.[66]

    It's taken a while, Barbie, but I'm gradually getting a much clearer picture of your God.

    Let's not get greedy.

    The evolutionists will get jealous if we get too much of a lead. Like we already have with one.

    And Newton denied that Jesus was God, and Kenneth Miller is a devout Catholic, so quite a range of opinions about God among the best scientists. It's a common misconception among creationists, that if one accepts scientific facts, one must have a particular religous outlook. Not every creationist is that dumb, of course, but there are plenty of dumb creationists.

    Seriously guy, the days that you live are the coin of your life and you spend them on that which you think is important. Most of your posts are dedicated to defending scientific orthodoxy ... and that is when you're not defending political orthodoxy.

    barbie's god is an ineffectual god that used random mutations and natural selection to create man

    iow, his feeble god is more interested in creating pain and suffering than improving man

    i know who his "god" is

    Our salvation is not based on being a devout Catholic, *nor on how we understand science. Kenneth Miller is a Christian if he confesses that he is a sinner and Jesus is his Lord and Savior.*

    What's more fun than science? Deflating the pompous twits who peddle their imaginary world as the real thing.

    Most of your posts are dedicated to defending scientific orthodoxy
    Except punk eek, and slab pull, and (well, I was wrong about thecodonts and birds, it seems) Some stuff just has way too much evidence to deny it.

    ... and that is when you're not defending political orthodoxy.
    Left libertarians are "politically orthodox?" You honestly think so?
