He was never my hero or any other poster on this joint for that matter. Why you respond to him after he's been banned and won't return is anyone's guess but that's the way here.Ah, I knew you'd enjoy it. I just used your hero, Barbarian's own favored formula. Would you like me to use it again?

Because I don't make idols of folk on internet platforms.Really? Whyever not?
I continued to reply with criticism to his pompous stupidities even after he had put me on "ignore" and considered himself somehow triumphant in doing so, so what difference should his having since been banned from TOL make to me? If I nowadays find stuff he's written and I feel like replying to it with criticism, that's what I'm going to do; and he's no less capable of defending his stupidities now that he's banned than he was before he ever even had me on "ignore".

Until RD bumped this thread it had been nigh on three years before anyone had posted on it.
Responding with "criticism" requires rather more than juvenile "retard" garbage
and Barb was eminently capable of responding to inanity like that.
Well, he sure seemed to get under your skin that you're still wound up about the guy.Well, you're definitely thinking straight insofar as Barbarian is not one of your heroes. I mean, how could you look up to someone like Barbarian who is so weak that he has to put people on "ignore" whom even you, yourself, have not needed to put on "ignore"?
How much do we owe you for that interesting factoid?
Does it require saying "wingnut" and "bat crazy" a lot?
As you learned, his eminence's capability consisted merely of knowing how to put his critics on "ignore". Would you like me to show you how to put your hero's critics on "ignore"?
Well, he sure seemed to get under your skin that you're still wound up about the guy.
Nothing, it was for free!
Not necessarily but those epithets for the far right
are somewhat apt given the amount of off the wall crazy associated...
Wow, Barb sure did get to you didn't he?
Let it go man.
Hey, you don't need to be wound up to call folk wingnuts and bat crazy. It would be preferable that there weren't loons out there but calling a spade a spade is a good thing.You'll know when I'm wound up about someone or something when I start mindlessly calling people "wingnut" and "bat crazy".
And worth every penny!
By "epithets" I take it you mean pejoratives. And since that phrase you like to parrot, "the far right," is itself a pejorative, to whom are you referring by it?
You should try looking at things from a different perspective (i.e., that of rationally-thinking people) instead of from your present mindset. That way, you'd not be saying silly things like what you're writing here.
I bet you'd say that about all your other idols/heroes, too.
You ever heard that song by Eric Clapton, Let It Grow? Man, that's a good tune! Thanks for making me think of listening to it!
Hey, you don't need to be wound up to call folk wingnuts and bat crazy. It would be preferable that there weren't loons out there but calling a spade a spade is a good thing.
No refunds then? Cool!
Wingnuts and bat crazy loons.
Hmm, you mean from the perspective of election deniers, Q-Anon, NAR and such? Eh, Pass....
You're the one wound up by the guy dude...
Probably at some point but hardly my thing anyway...enjoy!
There is a need for you to stop however, although that of course is your choice.
Outta this thread now.

What evidence?Nobody ever "believed" evolution. People "believe" in Christianity. People "believe" in Islam. "Belief" is not part of the discussion of a scientific theory.
Do scientists still think evolution is a good theory? Yes, of course. There is a lot of evidence for it, despite the OP. No amount of wishful thinking will make this go away. Scientists will change their minds when there is evidence that the theory is wrong. So far, that hasn't happened.
Interpretation instead of literal reading????If it could, then every man-made, sola scriptura sect would agree 100% on doctrine. Yet there are literally thousands of denominations with contradicting doctrine, all claiming to base their teaching on only the Bible. How does that happen?
What would you prove to us? That every combination possible already exists within the deck?Maybe if you used a simple concrete example with letters or playing cards it would sink it. Though I have my doubts whether anything will convince these fine gentlemen.
No, we just realize that the data and every experiment ever performed only shows Kind after Kind. God just happens to affirm the facts….They don't, and they won't. The problem here isn't the science or the math, or even the facts. There are two main issues here:
1. These Creationists think that the Bible, that is God himself (in their viewpoint), said otherwise. So somehow, anyhow, Evolution is wrong wrong wrong.
How is that? Every single fossil of any creature you care to name will remain distinctly that creature for every fossil found of that creature.2. This is also part of a culture war. You think you are on the side of Knowledge and Light, and they are on the side of Ignorance and Dark. They think you are on the side of Evil, plain and simple. They are on the side of God. They can't allow even one tiny crack in their view of Evolution as Evil. They can't even admit outright that the fossil record shows that evolution actually happened, irrespective of the mechanism and the math.
Wheat is still wheat, fruit flies are still fruit flies, E. coli is still E. coli, coelacanth is still coelacanth, Staph bacteria are still Staph bacteria. Every example of change that doesn’t involve imaginary missing common ancestors simply confirms Kind after Kind….So wheat is still wheat... got it.
