Lighter moment: Want to attract a school of sharks?
Randal Rauser, a self-described "Tentative Apologist" explains,
In my own view, the key question is, do you want to believe that little separates you from a baboon or would you rather be an authentic human being? If the former, behave like a Darwinist troll. You can probably even get money for being a baboon's cousin, if you do a good enough impression. If the latter, try Uncommon Descent, where you will learn things you will not hear from the Darwinists' media sheep heard.
I ventured into turbid waters a couple days ago by mentioning that in the future I would discuss Steve Meyer's Signature in the Cell in the blog. What followed was a barrage of discussion which led AnAtheist.Net to observe:
"It looks like you have discovered a quick way to attract a fiery horde of new readers."
Indeed. Actually I learned last year about the effect that mention of "intelligent design" has in a blog. I like to think of it as being like a bucket of fish heads and blood. Slop it in the ocean and within fifteen minutes you'll have a number of sharks swimming around the boat snapping things like: "That's just creationism in a cheap tuxedo. Goddidit! Magic! You suck! Ha ha ha!"
So the question. Do you want to deal with the sharks? (Jul 08, 2010)
