Have a look at this video about Christine Castillo Comer who was forced to resign as the Texas Education Agency’s director of science – her crime was to forward an e-mail message on a talk about evolution and creationism.
This video is a part of the exposure of the creationist propaganda documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.
The official Expelled Exposed website has now been launched. it’s full of information exposing the lies and distortions in the documentary. It also includes case histories of the individuals who claim to have been persecuted for the opposition to evolutionary science. It has a section on The Truth behind the Fiction and information on the documentary’s producers and their actions (Behind the Scenes).
A new expelled exposed YouTube Channel has also been launched and there will no doubt soon be other videos available.
Also have a look at the video Why do people laugh at creationists? (part 22) for a biting criticism of Ben Stein’s understanding of evolutionary science.
The people behind “Expelled” are angry about attempts to counter this propaganda movie with information. A press release from Expelled’s publicity agents are describing this information as “efforts to suppress free speech.” The film’s Executive Producer and Premise Chairman Logan Craft characterises the Expelled Exposed as:“opponents of our film are attempting to interfere with its important message.” The film’s Executive Producer Walt Ruloff talks about “intellectual thugs unwilling to accept any dissent from Darwinian orthodoxy.” And Denyse O’Leary from Bill Dembski’s Uncommon Descent blog has also taken to talking about “Darwin thugs.”
Isn’t this the same old whiny message, and opposition to freedom of speech, that the film itself promotes?
