Today’s winning quote comes from William Dembski’s review of Darwin’s Gift To Science And Religion – the Francis Ayala book. Referring to Ayala, Dembski says (Warning: Please turn your irony meters down, or off):
In fact, he gives no evidence of having spent anytime reading, much less digesting, the ID literature. Rather, Ayala gives the impression off someone who has gone to the ID literature simply to find objectionable passages, which he then reads in the worst possible light [emphasis mine – afarensis], forswearing any principle of charity.
Dembski is accusing his critics of quotemining? Words fail me….
