Eugenie Scott's Retraction
Eugenie Scott's retraction related to the Larry Caldwell libel suit can now be found here. Oops, she refers to it as merely a "clarification." Sorry, Eugenie.
The Science magazine version can be found here. They did not call it a "clarification," but rather a "mea culpa." That must be Latin for "clarification." The Discovery Institute's blog discusses it here, with other interesting links.
I thought this part of her statement was interesting:
Of the two incumbents not re-elected, one, who supported Caldwell's position, did not seek re-election; the other never identified himself as a creationist, although members of the community perceived him to support the antievolutionist efforts.Even in her "mea culpa/clarification" she seems to be justifying the label "Creationist" for anyone who is perceived to be questioning macroevolutionary theory. Maybe someday she will be able to think in shades other than black and white, and use substantive arguments instead of convenient, but misleading, labels.
For a discussion on the meaning of "Creationist" and "Creationism," and another example of a misleading use, have a look here.
