Well, let's see where we are now.

My current discussion with IBIG is in regards to the quote-mine featured on PT here: Dembski vs. Evo-Devo

IBIG maintains that this is a correct representation of the discovery article author's conclusion.

I maintain that it is (and remains since 2005) a quote-mine because it does not accurately represent the author of the original article.  If effect, it lies about what Elizabeth Pennisi said in her Science article.

Furthermore, I quote Psalms where it says, "There is no God." as an example of a quote-mine that is exactly the same as the discovery article.

Both quotes are taken out of context and result in a misrepresentation of the intent of the original author.

IBIG maintains that the discovery quote is legitimate, but my quote is a lie and that I'm a liar.  

So, IBIG, please explain why my quote-mine of the Bible is wrong, while the discovery article quote-mine is OK.

Over to you.
