I get the impression he would identify some scientists as duplicitous.
However, he seems to consider the majority to be simply misled.
Nevertheless, I give him credit because, unlike a Duane Gish or a Henry
Morris, the scientists he debates frequently become friends and come back
for more debates. Just the ability to have a reasonably clean fight is
progress in this arena.
