74. Please point to the actual "evidence" in the article
Edited on Mon Jun-02-08 12:27 PM by SDuderstadt
If you read it carefully, it's actually the opinions of the professors. How anyone can confuse opinion with fact is beyond me. If you read the quotes, the professors are making evaluative claims, not statements of fact. I'll ask my question again. Suppose a newspaper ran an article citing the arguments of Intelligent Design proponents and quoted them denying evolution. Are you seriously suggesting that the newspaper "clearly intended to put Intelligent Design and questioning evolution before its readers"? Are you serious? Do you actually know what reporting is? I don't know how one can read the wording of the article and divine that the newspaper was pushing a belief. Are you claiming to know the state of mind of the reporter or the paper?

If the paper was making the claim or raising the question, why wouldn't they put it on the editorial page? As I've long believed, the underlying problem with CT's or "truthers" is your abject lack of critical thinking skills, compounded by your inability to grasp nuance. I would highly recomment a class in Critical Thinking or Logic. I'm sure your local community college provides them.
