Roberts: Principles of Created Kinds

Continuing the discussion from The First Principles of Created Kinds:

An important conversation started that I wanted to continue in a more protected way. To keep this conversation on track, there are a few rules at play in this conversation. In general, give @AJRoberts and @Agauger time to respond. As actual OEC scientists who are outnumbered here, do not spam the thread with a Gish Gallop of questions and objections. Give them time to respond. Wait till outstanding questions are answered before following up.

Once their point it out there, then there may be space for larger discussion. However, give priority to scientists using their real names here. Anonymous posters should only comment on a side thread.

At this point, we can pick up the conversation here.

First, I think you are setting the the bar too high. There are religious theme at work here, I don’t think we can expect anything comparable to the ZFC axioms.

Second, let the case be presented before criticizing, as Joshua requested. Comments along these lines will end up in side comments until we have established the subject.

Sure, but how can we pick up the conversation? So far there’s nothing to pick up.

If you are in such a hurry, go read some Hugh Ross books. :wink:
Otherwise, we just have to wait until people have time to contribute.
