This is interesting. Yesterday I note Bryant's (or someone's) misuse of
the term "scientist" in a post, as I stated "science is not a monolithic
cult." Today, I read a post using my term, and behaving as though I had
not made the statement.

The power of creative editing.

Bryant is also trying to convince the audience that I am making statements
which I did not make, or that my statements have implications far
different than those I clearly stated.

(Either that or he believes every person who challenges his assumption is
a "Creationist." Yesterday a "post-modernist," today a "creationist,"
tommorow who knows what silly claim he will post.)

I do not communicate with those who *deliberately* misrepresent the
positions of others in their threads. End of my contribution to this
thread. Go talk to yourself, Bryant.

Blessed Be,
