Richard Dawkins’s famous long moment of silence …

I remember reading years ago violently conflicting opinions on Richard DawkinsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s famous/infamous/faked silence when a filmmaker asked him about the origin of genetic information.
Eventually the tape made its way to Barry Williams, the editor of an Australian journal called The Skeptic, who consulted with Dawkins and then published a blistering article with the title “Creationist Deception Exposed.” Williams at first seemed to be accusing the filmmakers of altering the tape by substituting a question Dawkins was never asked, but that accusation was never made explicitly and in any case was dropped after the creationists produced the raw tapes. (Phillip Johnson, The Wedge of Truth, pg. 40 (InterVarsity Press, 1999).)
