Unfortunate that scientists can't resist misappropriating words which, have a well established meaning among the general public and then give these words a new meaning that the general public then misconstrues as having the only meaning they are familiar with - the well established meaning.  Wait for the telepathy enthusiasts who will now trot out James Gates in attempts to breathe new legitimacy into their evidence starved hobbyhorse: telepathy.

Just as theists of all religious stripes and promoters of the spiritual can be relied upon to sooner or later trot out Albert Einstein's proprietary use of the term god as proof that the world's most influential scientist believed in the existence of their evidence starved entity: God.

Whereas "The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses" is what Einstein felt about this imaginary supernatural entity as the general public understands it.
