Karl Giberson doesn’t use the word “liar” to refer to Michael Behe and Paul Nelson, but it logically follows from this assertion:
But this is completely false, and these confident spokesmen know it.
Giberson (who might be called “Francis Collins’ pitbull”) goes after the Discovery Institute with quite a few insults and accusations. Below is a longer quote, but go to the link to read the full argument. You can decide if he is correct that Michael Behe is a liar, and whether this constitutes civil discourse befitting a believer.
I have been perusing the new anti-evolutionary Web site from the Discovery Institute, Faith+Evolution. This new site appears to be a frontal assault on the new BioLogos Web site, launched a few weeks ago by Dr. Francis Collins and the BioLogos team, of which I am a member.
The Faith+Evolution site, like most of the products from the Discovery Institute is slick, well-resourced, rhetorically clever, profoundly misleading, and almost completely devoid of any real science.
Take the opening video, with vignettes from Michael Behe, Paul Nelson, Jonathan Wells, and others. The carefully crafted impression that viewers get from the video is that these scholars represent a viable scientific position that is both held by a meaningful group of scientists—what they optimistically refer to as a “growing minority”—and will be explicated on the site, if viewers choose to dig deeper. But this is completely false, and these confident spokesmen know it.
