Would this concluding statement not reveal John's true motive for why he retracted his remarks? It's clearly not that he revised his position, considered over more than a ten year period, but that his position was revised for him.

If anything, this lends credibility to the claim that any criticisms of natural causation are not only frowned upon, but prohibited within the halls of science, and by their recruited lemmings that lurk in the underbrush of the blogosphere. Threats and adhoms to get points across merely make the case for a form of journalistic fascism, and in this example, have presented it clearly for all to see.
