ID advocates Tim McGrew and Sal Cordova have accused P.Z. Myers of misrepresenting Jonathan Wells when he pointed out that Wells had selectively edited a quote from a paper by William Ballard in BioScience. McGrew wrote that "Myers is lying through his teeth" about the quotation appearing on p. 35 of Wells' Politically Incorrect Guide to Intelligent Design.

Myers points out that McGrew and Cordova have failed to see what's right in front of them, and adds some red arrows to a scan of the page to help them see.

Will either of them apologize for their IDiocy?

UPDATE: They've admitted they were wrong about the quotation on p. 35, but argue that the text on the earlier pages is not guilty of the misrepresentation that Myers claimed with regard to the p. 35 quote.
