Don't suggest that Dembski and Wells lack the skills necessary to...
Don't you dare on Dembski's blog suggest...no, that doesn't work.
Don't state that Dembski and Wells need additional education, training and experience in...wait. I'll get it. Wait.
Well, don't do this:
|You wrote as if you didn’t know what the book says, and then criticized what the authors said as needing more schooling for clarity and brevity. This is, of course, impossible. You cannot criticize unless you know what you’re criticizing, or else it is not actually critical. I don’t know what you know or don’t know about any book at all, but this train of argument is incoherent and quite frankly rude, and my comment back to you, stating you needed more schooling was simply an illustration of that incivility, so you can see the error of employing it here. That’s why you’re now in moderation.|
