Nothing too exciting here, but I like to link up logs of my online discussions here once they're pretty well concluded.
Over on Victor Reppert's blog, what started out as a minor correcting of someone's obvious mistake about Intelligent Design turned into a lesson about the pitfalls of Cult of Gnu atheism. The big lesson: being a member of the Cult of Gnu doesn't automatically make you well-informed about religious and scientific matters, and it certainly doesn't make you smart. I know it's kind of a faux pas to question someone's intelligence, not only among Christians in general but in whatever passes for 'blog culture' too. But really, I stand by my actions in that thread, and on Dangerous Ideas generally - generally the blog where I'm on my worst behavior.
Christian have done themselves a lot of harm by trying to remain civil and respectful with people who not only grant them neither, but who don't really merit either. If you act respectful and even praiseful of a jackass who insults and belittles your faith and others' faith, you're not 'being the bigger man'. You're enabling intellectual bullying. Knock it off, please - even if you prefer to do it with more grace than myself.
