That is the trait of a poor teacher or someone that is spouting off to impress but really lacks the full understanding of the supject. If someone has a good understanding of a subject, especially a scientific one, then they SHOULD be able to find a way to present the subject in a way that other people can have a rudimentary understanding of the subject, if not all the nuances. If they cannot then I, for one, would be suspect of their knowledge.
