Carelessly, Douglas Altshuler declared:
“Proponents of intelligent design … have long criticized science for not being able to explain … how bees fly“
Now Stephen E. Jones has taken a stand for ID to make Altshuler to document his claim or to retract himself.
What about mass journals distorting the facts?
What about the unfounded statement of Dr. Francis S. Collins, quoted by Newsweek (previous link) when he carelessly declared:
“[ID] says, if there’s some part of science that you can’t understand, that must be where God is.”
Or what about the careless statement of Dr. Dennis Alexander when he wrote:
“ID proponents commonly use ‘naturalistic’ as a synonym for ‘scientific’ ”
Here, Altshuler, Collins and Alexander are siding with the ID-opposition by putting words never said by real “proponents of ID.”
None of these Doctors can document their careless words against an ID-guided research program!
So, is Altshuler single-handedly “poisoning the well” or not?
