Just looking

I have stopped posting on the BBC because I was in danger of spending more time on it than working because everytime Miles posted something I felt I had to reply. :?

But I pop in and have a look around for old times sake and noticed that this board had been reborn/regenerated/resurrected/reincarnated/evolved (delete as applicable to your beliefs) and thought I would have a look who was here.

I doubt I will post here any more than the BBC now...but Hi to anyone who knows me....

Many of us know that feeling David! Smilie_PDT  Unfortunately, Miles doesn't post there anymore, though I hope he will make it over here at some point.

:smt006   Hi David, and I'm sure that those of us who don't know you will enjoy getting to know you. Spare us a moment when you can!  8)

Hey maybe the temptation was reciprocal! Miles stopped because he didn't have the challenge of my blistering intellect, theological insight and witty repartee....  Smilie_PDT or maybe not...mmm :oops:

Hi there stranger ;)

Welcome to the forums!
david_geoffrey

Thanks Shaft - and may I say how welcome it is to find someone who thinks that Calvin&Hobbes is a worthy source to quote from. I wondered once if I should change my user name to Spaceman Spiff but thought no one would get it, but hey one person would have done!
Shaft2101

I'm equally glad to see a fellow fan  :lol:

TBH I was a bit stuck for which of the many fine quotes I should choose, but reckoned that my current one pretty much sums me up best ... or at least it seemed appropriate at the time when I was arguing a lot with YECs  
david_geoffrey

YECs...mmm...yes, I can sympathise with you, if not completely agree.

My views are tempered with the knowledge that in many cases their hearts are in the right place, well from my point of view at least, and so I cannot condemn them only think they are misguided. But that is another whole topic me thinks

I know what you mean ... the vast majority of them are unwittingly naive and aren't deliberately deceptive or wilfully ignorant.

There are, however, a fair number who are so perniciously anti-science and so thoroughly hung-up on pursuing their literalist dogmatism that they sink in to dishonesty, lying and fallacy in order to try to undermine science ... it's the dishonest manipulators, i.e. the ringleaders, of others who tend to get my wrath. The day-to-day YECs, as you say, have their hearts in the "right place", so to speak  :wink:

I think you are right there Shaft.
There are those who are simply unable to see the wood for the trees, and then there are those who use that for their own ends.
