That's what I was thinking-- the DT's as in alcohol withdrawal symptoms....
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

Angus and Alexis, the only problem with that Monty Python thingy was that I saw it when it originally aired in England about 43 years ago. Thanks for reminding me what an old twit I am!

But I'm no good at it. I have yet to figure out how to shoot myself in the head. I keep hitting the neighbor I just woke up!

Count me in on that one! I saw it when it originally aired too!

Looks like he's finally given up on us, how quaint.

Note to DrT.

I won't be giving up on you. I had a girlfriend who was clearly your twin. She thought she was so important, and so smart, that she just couldn't quite figure out why there were other people on the planet. They weren't necessary, and they interfered with her high opinion of herself. And you are the same way.

I ended up paying her well over 100K in child support, because, like you, she lied when it was convenient. Like about birth control. And the minute she found out she was pregnant, she broke up with me and went to her lawyers office.  So I'm taking my revenge out on you. This is about as personal as an anonymous web interaction can get. People like her, and you, are what makes life about at trillion times more miserable than it has to be.

By the way, all she could do is repeat herself too. The last original thought she ever had was "Gee, its kinda light that direction. Guess I slide out that way." After that, she was on an auto-importance trip and all she could say was "me me me me me me me". Just like you.

So hang around. You're frickin' cathartic.

lol, you paid over 100K in child support.  I'm glad I don't have kids if they cost that much.   lol  should have aborted it like Jag would recommend.   lol 

 If you could please her in bed, she still be with you.  She didn't lie about that.  lol

thanks for your autobiography but not sure what your wife playing the field for a better man has to do with me dropping knowledge down on IC.

I'm guessing that DrTesla has given up on trying to 'convert' us to supporting intelligent design and irreducible complexity.

She wasn't my wife. Do you want to be?

My tolerance for people who assume that they are a)the only important thing on the planet and b)that they know all there is to know about everything, is zero.

I know you don't recognize yourself in the above sentence, but the thing about big egos is that they don't know that they have one. You seem to think that you don't have to know anything to be right, and though you've certainly proven the former, you have yet to demonstrate the latter. And your attitude, one of complete confidence in a world that you don't understand in any way, shape or form, is irksome. As was my girlfriend.

It figures this is what you came back to talk about. Since its about you. As is, as far as you're concerned, everything else in the universe.

You didn't 'drop knowledge' down. You merely ASSERTED your assumption with use of the fallacy of the argument from incredulity. And instead of correcting your use of that fallacy (among others) you decided to continue using it, as if we wouldn't notice or we'd eventually jump on board with your irrationality. And then, when you realized we would not jump on board you continued to shower your same fallacies over and over. You couldn't demonstrate anymore clearly that you don't care about truth, knowledge, or science.

And the rest of the world breathes a sigh of relief.... Oh! Wait! Didn't you say elsewhere that you have two daughters?

DrT is back for one reason and one reason only. His ego needs to have the record for most negative karma's on the site, and with Skeptic666 closing in, he had to return. He sees himself as Rocky running up the steps in imaginary triumph. The only kind available to him.

Flies only live for at most 36 hours so he'd be dead at three days so...no.
