Know how you ought to answer

Tom Gilson offers good advice to Christians who become involved in discussion of Intelligent Design. It is also good advice for any of us involved in almost any controversy. Excerpts [read it all]:
Here are the three most serious mistakes to avoid:
  1. Speaking Of What We Do Not Know ....
  2. Speaking Without Respect and Courtesy ....
  3. Not Speaking of What We Do Know ....
For those who are Christians, Colossians 4:6 summarizes it best:
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
