I'm posting this here because this is where I've been most active during my time on the site. I think it'd be beneficial for me to begin delving into some bookwork to help answer some of the questions that I have. Hopefully when and if I return I'll have a better understanding of things. I've also been spending an unhealthy amount of time on DDO so I may not return. Goodbye and best wishes to everybody.

Goodbye, Ben. Best of luck to you.

Later, Ben. We had our disagreements, but I wish you the best in this endeavor. Hopefully you're questioning some of your own beliefs in the process.

Good luck with your reading, Ben, and best wishes for your further inquiries.

I hate to be a nay-sayer but, knowing Ben, his reading is going to be highly selective and the focus will be on shoring up and improving his existing arguments which he realizes have been found wanting. More Dembski, Meyer and Behe probably.

Reality: Both spider and wasp are extinct. Sub-species of same wasp parasitizes spider eggs.

Probably.

Good luck anyway, later Ben.

Goodbye. Best of luck to you. You may want to see the upcoming debate, though.
