I will be away from the computer for about a week as I celebrate the birth of our savior and just wanted to wish all of my friends here a very Merry Christmas.
Thank you for allowing me to participate at Teleological blog and may God bless you all.

Allen,

If there is any question you would like to ask me about, feel free. It doesn’t have to be about ID directly. For example, you can ask, “Sal, do you get any money for your advocacy of ID?”

Or, “Do you believe ID is really true?” “Do you want ID in public schools?”

You may be surprised at my answers.

Teleological has three authors, and is a lot smaller place than Uncommon Descent, and generally under the radar screen. I’m not under the same constraints here as I am at Uncommon Descent.

I’m doing this to put to rest questions people may have, and also, you seem someone who is genuinely curious to learn more about the IDers and their ideas.

You strike me as the most collegial and scholarly critic of ID I’ve encountered. I’m sorry I have not had the privilege of taking your classes.

Salvador

Our fathers’ God to Thee,
Author of Liberty,
To thee we sing,
Long may our land be bright
With Freedom’s holy light,
Protect us by thy might
Great God, our King.

O Beautiful for patriot dream
that sees beyond the years.
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears.
America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood,
From sea to shining sea.

Oh, say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Christmas, 1991 the Soviet Union was officially disbanded as well as the infamous secret police known as the KGB. Darwinism was forced on the people through state totalitarianism and the KGB.

After the KGB departed, the Darwinists in Russia turned to none other than Barbara Forrest (abbr BarFo) to combat the creationists in Russia. Here is the 1999 account from the NCSE:

Help Counter Creationism in Russia

NCSE member Barbara Forrest, who recently attended a conference in St. Petersburg, reports that Russian scientists desperately need resources to stem the rising tide of creationism in their country.

Indeed, as reported at Uncommon Descent after only a mere 15 years from the fall of the iron curtain:

26 percent of those surveyed supported the theory of evolution, while 49 percent of respondents said they believed man was created by God

Unfortunately for we who are part of the Wedge underground of covert subversives, BarFo has ratted us out. Her announcemnt to the world about our mischief was reported at Telic Thoughts.

I’m alerting all agents of the Wedge who read this weblog that the public is now aware of our secret operation because of BarFo’s relentless spying. Take the appropriate course of action given your cover is now gone.

Wedge Agent 86

Agent 86, over and out.

I liked that “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” was picked for best makeup.

I liked that Reese Witherspoon won as the best female actress as country singer June Carter:

Oh, my goodness I never thought I’d be here in my whole life growing up in Tennessee,” said Witherspoon, who like co-star Joaquin Phoenix as Carter’s soul mate, country legend Johnny Cash, handled her own singing in “Walk the Line.”

Reese

People used to ask June how she was doing, and she would say I’m just trying to matter. I know what she means,” said Witherspoon, who told the audience the Oscar made her feel she was doing work that matters.

However, I did not like that George Clooney won supporting-performer for his anti-American role in “Syriana” (that anti-American award was the “opening act” for the night, after showing Clooney lying in bed with Stewart), where the “hero” is a self-exploding terrorist bomber, while the enemy is the U.S. government. As Krauthammer wisely declared yesterday (see his full text below):

Tonight, as the Oscars are honoring Syriana, American soldiers will be fighting, some perhaps dying, in defense of precisely the kind of tolerant, modernizing Muslim leader that Syriana shows America slaughtering.

I did not like that filmmaker Ang Lee, who won the best-director prize for the fiction tale of two old cowboys who carry on an homosexual love affair they conceal from their families for years (well, at least he did not win for best movie of the year, yeah!) Lee, whose martial-arts epic “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” won the foreign-language Oscar five years ago, became the first Asian filmmaker to win Hollywood’s main filmmaking honor. “I’m so proud of the movie,” Lee said backstage, where he was asked if he was disappointed that his film about gay cowboys lost best picture and what might have kept it from winning. “Why they didn’t go for it, I don’t know. You’re asking a question that I don’t know the answer…” (My comment: Lee, you are totally wrong on portraying the Chinese as masculine tigers while portraying the American male Cowboys as feminine and coward homosexuals. Please, oh dear movie-goer, dont buy that lie!)

My question is: Is this Chinese director trying to “feminize” the American culture to weaken it more and more, to the point to make it unable to defend against terrorists, against a Chinese Communist Imperialism and against anti-Americans like that Clooney (read it as ‘Clowney‘)?

I am really thrilled to see Songs of Salvation in more and more musical events.Mariah CareyYesterday, in the 2006 Grammy Awards, Mariah Carey presented her great song “Fly Like A Bird” (accompanied by a Choir, a song that also was featured in the 2005 “Storm Telethon” and in “Good Morning America“). Last night, at the end of that song, she was acclaimed with a standing ovation. You were able to see Sting and all the other singers standing up of their seats in awe after hearing Carey’s heavenly message, while Teri Hatcher (the most desperate one) even made a comment (that wasn’t captioned) related to that song and the Salvation that it brought to the whole place (and don’t forget Carey’s songs “My Saving Grace“, “When You Believe“, and her other related ones.)
