Controlling the Message at BloggingHeads

Over at BloggingHeads the heat has been turned up. John McWhorter's interview of Darwin doubter Michael Behe was yanked as soon as Paul Nelson hit the return key. The forum gives one of those carefully crafted statements which speaks volumes in what it omits:

John McWhorter feels, with regret, that this interview represents neither himself, Professor Behe, nor Bloggingheads usefully, takes full responsibility for same, and has asked that it be taken down from the site. He apologizes to all who found its airing objectionable.

"Represents neither himself, Professor Behe, nor Bloggingheads usefully"? Unbelievable. This is reminiscent of those forced confessions that make no sense. The prisoner awkwardly apologizes in broken English he would never normally utter as armed guards threaten him from behind.

Any use of the scientific evidence to criticize evolution is hereby "objectionable." There will be no more discussion. I'm afraid the revolution will not be televised--even on BloggingHeads.
