Bill Nye the Science Guy to Debate Creationist

    I've heard people criticize Nye for using too much data, but I don't quite agree. I thought the point of the debate was to demonstrate whether Ham's Creationist viewpoint was valid. Doesn't that require a bit of data? Would it really be enough for Nye to say, the evidence is in his favor? He has to demonstrate his information. Maybe he could have explained his positions better, but I thought he showed the right amount of empirical data to make his case.

    It's only because I used to play games with him in the past. Ummm - I just realized how dirty that sounded. I meant - in the "Games" section of the SKMB.

    I know, though, that sometimes you look at a person's avatar and you think they are a certain gender.
    On the old board I would mix up FlakeNoir at first with CatInABag as they both had smiley faces

    Walter Oobleck keeps coming back...or going, and going, and going

    Like I SAID above, I contacted the board through the "contact us" option. The most I received was a machine response...so WHAT was I supposed to think? I still can't access the old board whenever someone posts a link to it. And when the new board began, I had to post the "problems" thread in Website, simply to be able to post more than one time and out, which was what I was experiencing at the time. So I'm sorry if I choose to believe something when all other options seem closed to me. I'm told I should not air my grievances...and yet if I were to go to the Cantina, I'd read a number of grievances. Or I could go to the I Am Mad Today and read more of the same. Why am I told not to air my problems? Special? The reality is that I CONTACTED THE BOARD through the only option open to me and I I got nothing! And I'm not going to take any more time in this thread to repeat what has already been ignored and minimized.
  10. I'm glad you're giving up the ghost :) I understand your frustrations. I've spent days (weeks even) in the past trying to get answers from Microsoft and HP. My biggest problem is that I don't know enough about operating systems (windows, iOS, etc) and web browsers (IE, Firefox, Safari, etc) and different hardware/software compatibilities in order to ask the right questions or even provide the needed information, y'know? I had problems when vBulletin was switched to XenForo, but everything works fine now. I think Jordan was kept pretty busy with the switchover and then working out the bugs, I'm pretty sure he didn't realize he hadn't addressed your question. Plus, it takes a while to figure out what kind of problems in a switchover will lift their ugly heads... I'm not referring to you lol.

    I looked at an old post made by a member I knew had been banned and "deleted user" appeared under his name. I also looked at one of your old posts and "deleted user" did not appear under your name. I can't guess as to why you were unable to log in. (note: the only reason I was able to view the old posts was because I had bookmarked the thread on my browser.)

    Anyways.... Welcome back :)
