Richard Hollerith's blog post explicitly stated that he hadn't read the post where "moral miracle" is defined ("The Gift We Give To Tomorrow"). As Caledonian has read this post, his misrepresentation was malicious, while Hollerith's status is that of an innocent victim of Caledonian.

Thom Blake, you've just been another victim of Caledonian, this time by his implication that I censor him for disagreement rather than malicious misrepresentation. Plenty of people here disagree without getting censored, such as, for example, Richard Hollerith.

Phil Goetz, why should I care what sort of creatures the universe "tends to produce"? What makes this a moral argument that should move me? Do you think that most creatures the universe produces must inevitably evolve to be moved by such an argument?
