Cummins: We have people using 5-cent reasoning with 5-dollar words. And, often (as
in the example I used), the 5-dollar word isn't any more precise than the
5-cent word. So, why do some of the people in this newsgroup use "the
terminology"? My 2-cents is that they want to sound more intelligent and
more informed.

On the contrary, using established terminology reduces the potential for misunderstandings.

Cummins: Although, self-important Evolutionists are not alone in this juvenile
babble? Ever read documents produced by teachers for other teachers? Too
bad their language only handicaps their thinking ability.

It's interesting that you apparantly oppose evolution without understanding its premises. Should you not at least make that effort ?
