I suppose I will, since you can provide me no evidence of your argument at all.

This should be easy for you GeoffP, are there any legitimate biologists in the Intelligent Design camp? They get degrees like everybody else, so are they legitimate biologists in your mind?
Yes, they are, though I do not find support in their paradigms. Present their theories against Darwinianism, if you will.
Personally I think it's fine for them to suggest their theories, so long as they can be argued. Frankly, even the excessive complexity espoused by Behe does not necessarily translate into deific provocation. You want to shout down microevolutionary Darwinianism? Fine. Off you go, then. But that doesn't mean God was behind the scenes. Or that he wasn't, either. It's reality-neutral. Unrelated.
What supposedly is "micro-evolutionary Darwinism" GeoffP?
And remember, you said all credible biologists are Darwinists, and now you don't say that, so please be consistent.
Micro-evolution. Now can we, y'know, debate it or something?
Please illustrate where I made such a comment or be denounced as a troll. This is ridiculous.
GeoffP, see your posts #157 and #163, now, you should be denounced as a troll.
There is no difference between "micro" and "macro" evolution according to Darwinism, so what are you trying to talk about?
Lets see some argument to back up your claims
The claims are self evident, GeoffP contradicted himself, see those two posts, and micro and macro evolution are young earth creationist terms, not Darwinian terms, so GeoffP does have lots of 'splainin to do.
I'd still like to see some arguments otherwise I will delete all your posts in this thread as trolling.
Arguments for what? GeoffP says he wants to talk about "Darwinian micro-evolution," but that is not a Darwinian notion, so GeoffP needs to step up to the plate to try to explain what HE's talking about. Maybe you should delete all of GeoffP's posts therefore.
Lets first hear your arguments behind this claim.
Biologists who propone Intelligent Design dissent from Darwinian dogma, obviously.
Give us a peer reviewed paper now, to back up your claims.
What in the hell are you talking about?
?? Again, what are you talking about? The two processes - both of which probably are going on - are evolutionary. Neither is inherently the refutation of Darwinianism. Please present some arguments or something.
THEY CERTAINLY ARE NOT.
That's it. You're a troll. You don't have any argument, and you don't have any points. There is no need to differentiate between micro and macro as being exclusively responsible for evolution. Period. What is your argument?
I will now REPOST the articles I mentioned previously, since you appear to have constructed an elaborate roundabout to get by them. If you have any scientific training at all, as you say you do, then you are surely familiar with the Biological Species Concept. Here are some articles illustrating that concept and its inference from reproductive isolation:

I highlighted one of special interest since it involves speciation/isolation by selection.

As for the rest of my dealings to date with you, I commend unto you Exodus 20: 16. I leave your ethics in the hands of your faith.
*IAC staggers from the ring punch drunk*
I suggest everyone visit the Earth Science section and take a look at the last couple pages of IAC's thread "Great Explanation of Global Flood Model."
He is taking a severe beating.
Wow, I'd hate to be IAC's parents the day they told him Santa Clause didn't exist. :bravo:
