Books books books
Hi, yes I have quite a few theistic evolution books that I have been reading recently. I have a couple more to add. I am very disappointed with them, most of them are no different than creationist ones, very little science found in the books. I have read over 250 creationist books, they are the worst.

- Damn, I would probably be in a padded cell right now if I had to read that many of them. You should check out What Darwin Got Wrong for some ID-esque arguments from a rather different angle. The book, however, is not pushing a religious agenda. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 18:29, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
- Yes I know of that book I have not read but it has been on my list for a long time & I will probably buy it soon. My favourite book on the subject is "Intelligent Universe" by Fred Hoyle. Link most scientists have shot down some of his ideas about panspermia, but I believe he has some valid points remaining which have been unexplored. The creationists have misrepresented and quote mined his book sadly. I think Fred Hoyle needs an article on rationalwiki where theres a section debunking some of the creationist lies about him perhaps I will get round to it at some point.

There are actually a handful...
...of articles that you have created lately that need links into them. Since you know this stuff way better than I, could you please find some relevant links? Thanks so much. Theory of Practice Years of being an atheist: 30. Instances of persecution on that account: 0. 02:30, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your comment, I will get round to linking them all, I was confused about your previous comment when you mention linking them, do you mean to other articles on rational wiki? I put some of the theistic evolution books in links on the theistic evolution article. DinoCrisis (talk) 02:35, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
"The Christian God"
"God" would be less redundant, and more accurate, given that He is also the god of the Jews and the Muslims. I suppose you could write "The Abrahamic God," but with the upper-case "G", we all know which deity you mean. Theory of Practice Years of being an atheist: 30.

Book titles go in italics...
- Yes it appears he is, it is not a well written book yet has been a popular one. Half of the book advocates religious naturalism and the rest theistic evolution. He has ripped off authors like Thomas Berry and Eric Chaisson etc and just throws in some random religious quotes. DinoCrisis (talk) 22:06, 27 July 2012 (UTC)
That article about me
I simply don't understand you there. Are you actually an Ed Conrad supporter? Because I was keen on creating sci.archaeology.moderated in part because of people like him (he still pollutes sci.archaeology). Here's the final Request for Discussion link, see how I described myself and look at who agreed to back it.. The archaeologist Ken Feder cites me in his Encyclopedia of Dubious Archaeology: From Atlantis to the Walam Olum:. My website was mentioned in the journal of the Arcaeological Institute of America. Do you disagree with what I said here in the Garry Denke thread you added to prove I'm some kook?. Dougweller (talk) 15:50, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
