|More specifically, it should be obvious to all working scientists that creationists and IDists are all too ready to twist any comment they can out of context to serve their own purposes. The existence of the IDists and their notorious attempts to miscommunicate and misrepresent means that we are exactly in a situation "where words need to be chosen very carefully." It therefore behoves scientists not to go around handing them choice nuggets. |

Words should communicate. His words communicated. Mission accomplished.
