"Poor Dr. Dr. Dembski. Seventy three years of college and even the
people who test parrots for telepathy don't respect him." - Ceiling Cat, AtBC, 2008

"It seems to me that such people care more about labels than reality. Just as slapping the label of atheist onto the entire scientific discipline allows people to discard the views of thousands of scientists in favor of accepting the views of a handful of engineers and computer programmers, so the label of conservative hearkens back to a fantasy caricature of the Reagen era, a past that never was." - Nomad, AtBC, 8 Feb 2008

"It is almost a cliche in this newsgroup that creationism in this day
and age has retreated to epistemological nihilism. Note that even
their scientific expert does not claim that the evidence is better
explained by or better supports their version of events; his point is,
rather, that evidence does not really matter, since different
worldviews and different assumptions can justify any conclusion from
the same evidence." - Stephen J., Talk.Origins, 3 Nov 2007

"SETI is based on the simple assumption that nature operates
elsewhere the same way it does here. ID is based on the assumption
that nature doesn't even work here." - Bobby Bryant, Chez Watt, 2002

"We lie loudest when we lie to ourselves." - Eric Hoffer
