A Note on Nomenclature

This post by Larry Moran gives a good indication of differences in the way atheist and ID communities insult one another: Atheists tend to use expletives and accusations of feeble mindedness, whereas ID supporters, with all the seriousness of the religious mentality, have the know how and gravitas of purpose to implicate their opponents in unforgivable sins - like the holocaust for example. Expletives add nothing to the atheist argument, although use of the holocaust, if anything, effectively subtracts from the ID argument when we simply remember the word "Inquisition".
