Ah, quote-mining. A proud Creationist tradition.

Ah yes, the old "you're just quote mining" missive. I was waiting for that. Get that from TalkOrigins, by any chance? Feel free to take any of these quotes and provide any "context" you feel would change the meaning of the words these macroevolution proponents used.

At bottom, the "quote mining" charge is just a buzzword that means nothing. It's meant to create a negative emotive reaction to the message and quell objecdtive discussion. But words mean things; so do plain admissions. To suggest otherwise is take a page right out of the Bill Clinton Manual of Dissembling, Diversion and Distraction-- a tactic unworthy of "enlightened and objective" minds searching for truth.

Maybe so. Quotes are irrelevant anyway. The scientific research behind evolution is solid. The science behind creation is crap. That's the bottom line. Read a science book.
