Stein is a fool

I knew Ben Stein was conservative, but I thought he was fiscally conservative, not, you know, totally out of his fucking mind. In his new movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, Stein and a production team trick evolutionary biologists using Borat-style tactics, recite the ‘Darwinism = eugenics = Nazism’ fallacy, and generally mischaracterize everything they can get their hands on.

And just look at what Mr. Stein is wearing! No joke, I find this part the most troubling. An attempt to make intelligent design look hip and rebellious terrifies me because it just might work.

From the About section of the Official Expelled Blog

In a scientific world gone mad, EXPELLED: No Intelligence Allowed is the controversial documentary that will chronicle Ben Stein’s confrontation with the Neo-Darwinian machine, exposing widespread suppression and entrenched discrimination in his heroic quest to bring back freedom in our institutions, laboratories and most importantly, in our classrooms, with the help of the world’s top scientists, educators and thinkers.

The emphasis is theirs. Thank you Mr. Stein. Thank you for letting us know about this new hip thing called creationism that THE MAN doesn’t want us to know about. We are in your debt.

Scientific American was invited to a pre-screening, and has a great article about it. And be sure to watch the “super” trailer.

Which came first: the douche or the douchebag?

I think an analogous documentary film should also be made out of the DINOGLYFS or dinolits:

It seems that the ancient man not only saw but also documented the last megafauna (gigafauna, I should say, really!)
