I'm betting that Bernhard's first post uses the word "presupposition" at least three times.

I'll bet Bernhard will dismiss all evidence presented as not evidence for evolution.

Post Re: Discussion thread for Bernhard.visscher vs. hackenslash

Some of my favorite of Bernie's greatest hits are

Lying about the Google definition of Macro-evolution.

Admitting to not knowing how to measure "information," but still claiming that evolution can't make it increase.

And my favorite complaining about "assumptions" of evolution but avoiding talking about how those "assumptions" can be verified.

Don't forget, us quoting scientists is just argument from authority, yet he admitted he beleive Tompkins on Chromosome 2, even after Tompkins assertions were proven false.

For some reason, that isn't an argument from authority, if you're Bernhard.

Post Re: Discussion thread for Bernhard.visscher vs. hackenslash

Don't forget the goalpost shifts, false equivocations, use of lay dictionaries but rejection of scientific definitions...hmm what other dishonest tactics has Bernhard.visscher used...?

It might be interesting to see how long hackenslash holds his cool. I will give him a lot of credit if he can keep from vomiting at the things that Bernhard says. I'm just wondering how you even prove evidence works when the person you are discussing with rejects everything out of hand and than lies about your claims. The fact he won't even accept the current definitions held by science and doesn't understand that just because a model had mistakes and was revised doesn't mean it wasn't scientific at the time it was the current model. He seems to think that a dogmatic model that doesn't change with the evidence is science while an up-datable model that changes with the evidence isn't. This will make it an uphill debate, but at least anyone honest viewing it will see how horrible Bernhard's arguments are.

Will Bernard finally learn how to use the "quote"-functon PROPERLY?
Yes 3.9
No 1.01

How long does it take before hackenslash becomes frustrated and insults Bernard?

You might also include proper use of your and you're.

Maybe also add will he have comprehension of what atavism is?


Before I place my bets. Does he have to master the quote function? As in does he have to get it right every time or just once?

Also who determines if it's an insult?

Good one. I will add this one.

But, I will add new ones after one of the previous (now) three is done.

Something like this post would suffice for quote function, most of the time. Let's say, in over 50% of posts.

I do! :)

Place your bets, 100 units per person!
We'll have three bets at a time. You don't have to spend all of your units or bet on every one of them.

I would think it would be pretty obvious at that point with hackenslash when he starts getting insultive, but as we all know common sense only applies to common experience. Though based on his own statements in setting this up he'll behave, and since he's tying to show how disingenuous Bernhard.visscher breaking that promise will give the pigeon it's chance.

I think end of the day it'll still be an effort in futility since Bernhard doesn't even understand the definitions and that gives him more than enough room to hide and dance and dodge the evidence. How can anyone have an honest debate if your opponent is going to pretend that what you are saying isn't what you said. Just like the whole thing that made hackenslash take it up, Aronra's statement that he can't "just" present the evidence. We all know, and anyone who read any of the posts before that would know, that what was being stated was that just presenting evidence doesn't mean anything without the background to show why the evidence is evidence. If you can use any definition you want for evolution, macro/micro evolution, species, "kind", leg, etc. than you'll never have a meaningful conversation.

I'm wondering if this will be more of a train wreck than trying to read the dandan vs. Inferno debate, at least from the point of view of the creationist came to a battle of wits unarmed.

Post Re: Discussion thread for Bernhard.visscher vs. hackenslash

I will bet 25 moneys that Bernhard.visscher cannot master the quote function. 50 moneys that hackenslash will not insult Bernhard.visscher. 25 moneys Bernhard.visscher will not master "your" and "you're".

Now that we are betting on Bernhard.visscher, this debate might actually be interesting.

Post Re: Discussion thread for Bernhard.visscher vs. hackenslash

I'm a terrible gambler. 100 on no insults. Keep in mind it isn't an insult if the person really is a fuckwit/cunt/moron/etc.

I should have jumped in on the bets sooner so I don't seem like HWIN.

If my credit is good:
33 on "No, Bernard will not learn the quote function."
66 on hackenslash not being insultive. I have "faith" that he'll be genuous in his desire to have a formal style debate.
33 on Yes Bernard will use tour and you're right 3 times in a row. Someone demanding formal debates can't be that stupid when they get into a formal debate can they?
