This is the quote out of context thread the objective is to take someone's quote and make it sound different by taking it out of context you can use sigs and avatars

I posted this in another part of the forum, but it's worth repeating:

http://www.idnet.com.au/ wrote:Biology Direct publishes this wonderful paper by Eugene Koonin. "In each major class of biological objects, the principal types emerge "ready-made", and intermediate grades cannot be identified. ... The position of some ultra-darwinists that Darwin, "in principle", solved all the problems of the origin of biological complexity in his eye story, and only minor details remain to be filled in is outright false.... The ID folks are clever in their own perverse way, they see through such false simplicity and seize on it."


They didn't take it from the paper itself, but from the reviewer's comments & author's responses.
Biology Direct wrote:Abstract: "In each major class of biological objects, the principal types emerge "ready-made", and intermediate grades cannot be identified." Ouch, that will be up on ID websites faster than one can bat an eye.

Author's response: Here I do not really understand the concern. I changed "ready-made" to "abruptly", to avoid any ID allusions and added clarifications but, beyond that, there is little I can do because this is an important sentence that accurately and clearly portrays a crucial and, to the very best of my understanding, real feature of evolutionary transitions. Will this be used by the ID camp? Perhaps – if they read that far into the paper. However, I am afraid that, if our goal as evolutionary biologists is to avoid providing any grist for the ID mill, we should simply claim that Darwin, "in principle", solved all the problems of the origin of biological complexity in his eye story, and only minor details remain to be filled in. Actually, I think the position of some ultra-darwinists is pretty close to that. However, I believe that this is totally counter-productive and such a notion is outright false. And, the ID folks are clever in their own perverse way, they see through such false simplicity and seize on it. I think we (students of evolution) should openly admit that emergence of new levels of complexity is a complex problem and should try to work out solutions some of which could be distinctly non-orthodox; ID, however, does not happen to be a viable solution to any problem. I think this is my approach here and elsewhere.

I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

He isn't giving instructions here, merely telling a parable about a king. Of course, the king is held up as an example of how to be so...
