Clark Adams was on the board of directors of Internet Infidels, the organization that hosts the infamous “swamp” (the infidels creation/evolution discussion board).

It was the swamp creatures the heroic ID proponents and creationists have fought on the internet in various places for many years, and these battle continue to this day…

But now, one of the Darwinsits generals in the person of Clark Adams falls on his owns sword in the middle of battle!

At first I was about to seriously gloat that yet another Darwinist was vanquished. He killed himself in a manner thoroughly consistent with his pointless Darwinian world view. But alas, I find the passing of this particular enemy to be an unhappy event…

Having spent many hours with atheists, I’m always struck by the humaness of some of them. Some are scum of the Earth like John Rennie and Larry Moron, but Adams, by all counts, had many virtues.

I think so highly of Adams I would almost offer the customary blessing, “God rest his soul”, were in not for the fact that in my heart, I know, for Clark Adams, such a wish has no chance of coming true….

See: Clark Adams Eulogy

Then there was the side to Clark that was definitely that of the poignant, if not sensitive man. There were times we would have conversations and you could see him reacting as if he wasn’t as worthy. The sad part of this is he was certainly more important than most people in the room. He never came across as brazen, or brash, but instead was demure, and humbled. He deserved to be the most adored speaker, and the one most revered by all. And instead, he let the spotlight shine on others who often were far less well-spoken, or far less intelligent. When he did speak, people heard him, and they took his words to heart. They looked to him as a peer, and not a demi-god as some view Dawkins and Hitchens. And yet, he certainly could be considered as equal to them in any panel, or in any conference.

it was Judy! He was glowing and happy and they were just smiling away and it was like watching two teenagers on prom night. Clark Adams looked like — well, it was apparent, Clark Adams and Judy were in love!

    How on Earth can you know such things Sal? I would rather leave these matters to God.

    Well, if I’m wrong, all the better for Adams. If I’m right, it’s pointless.

    When I said, “no chance”, it’s on the presumption that in the course of his suicide he rejected the Christian faith. That presumption could of course be wrong, but given his death was a self-induced suicide by someone who only days earlier was railing against the church — I presumed his fate was sealed, and it would be unkind of me, for the sake of the living who can still change their ways to sugar coat what we Christians believe happens to unbelievers.

    In any case, thank you for your thoughts inunison.
