PZ Myers mentions my blog

"That ID blog, Uncommon Descent, had a slight shakeup in their management recently. If you had the faint idealistic hope that their comment policy might have become a bit less intolerant, forget it: they're still deleting dissent."

That's pretty cool that PZ Meyers mentioned your blog....It's not cool that AiG is deleting comments (but I've only come to expect the least from them).

It's not AiG it's Uncommon Descent - An intelligent design blog.

Anyway, it's funny to me how mild my comments were and how they weren't tolerated in light of so much crap I tolerate on my own blog plus all the idiots we tolerate on this board. It's weird how atheist forums are usually open and free and Christian boards are usually strict, quick to censor, and quick to boot.

It's not surprising at all when one side of the argument has observations, facts, and experiments to support their claim while the other side has no observations, no experiments, and the only fact being we don't know how some things happened.

To draw support to their argument, ID proponents must eliminate any and all evidence of opposition on their support network.

Real opposition may inspire doubt. Doubt damages faith.
