Scientists Pwn Those Lying About Their Work For Creationist Agendas

PZ Myers points us to two great letters from scientists to creationists distorting the meaning of their work.  The idea that non-biologists commenting on the internet can feel entitled to go around calling legitimate biologists frauds is so stupefying to me.  Do these people have no humility, no appreciation for the rigors of specialized scientific investigation, and no self-awareness?  Apparently, yes, some people have none of these things.

So, here are the letters from Joe Thornton (whose letter comes at the end of an article) and Richard Lenski (whose main letter is the fourth in the sequence on the page).
