RE: How do you tell if something is designed by an intellect or not?
I am curious about the OP's education and experience.

Do you have a science degree? Do you work in a scientific or technical field?

I see you as someone who thinks he knows what he doesn't really know or understand.

I'm educated enough to know the difference between a non sequitor and a conflation.....unlike some people in this forum.

I don't think so - you failed to do it here.

I guess you're not going to answer the question. Are you a teenager?

We can assume then that you have no actual education or training in science.

On the other side of the fence, accepting abiogenesis; logic would seem to dictate that this thread is of a sort to have been "designed by an intellect," yet... Tongue

My education has nothing to do with the truthfulness or validity of my argument. It is irrelevant. If my argument is bad it is bad because it has a dubious premise, or faulty logic. It is not bad because I didn't go on to get a PHD. Do you know what fallacy you commit when you reject an argument on the the basis of not liking something about the arguer?

Did he do that? Consider

Nope. Drinking Beverage

Nope. Drinking Beverage

I didn't say he committed any fallacy. I merely asked him a question about argumentative fallacies. Drinking Beverage

He asked you a direct question, you avoided answering, he drew a conclusion.

Did he mention your argument in that exchange?
