Re: logic and scientist vs engineer and equivocation
I've been following this debate closely, and I must admit that most people had very good points.
To me it it all is solved when a person professionaly introduces him- or herself as: Hi. I'm John; I'm a Mecanical Engineer. Or, Hi, I'm Jim, a Geneticist. Or, hi, I'm Jack, a Seismologist. Or, Hi, I'm Mary, a Particle Physicist.
What' I've found a lot is that creationists tend to introduce themselves as "scientists" to very ignorant people who think that a Chemical Engineer would know the same about Palaeontology as an Inorganic Chemist would. All scientists are supposed to know everything about everyting. It's usually aimed at misleading innocent and ignorant people.
Some people find the word "scientist" something akin to the word "God".
