Of course some conversants did not need a lot of help
from editing to make them look silly.
But consider, for example, the Michael Ruse interview in which he was
pushed on speculations involving the role of crystals in lifes origin. Ruse is a philosopher and historian of
biology. Did he really spend the
majority of his interview with Stein talking about biochemical theories of
lifes origin, or was this a detour Stein engineered and then exploited? The regrettable thing is, while a strong
critic of ID, Ruse is consistently respectful of religious believers, he
strongly opposes the dismissiveness of Richard Dawkins and those of his ilk,
and his own arguments against ID admirably avoid the kind of tactics to which
he was subjected.
