Expelled

So there's a ridiculous documentary coming out tomorrow about intelligent design. Expelled. My hope is that others will go see it for me and tell me how it is. I fear that if I go myself I may just have to slaughter everyone who laughs at Stein's (and the producers) intellectually dishonest comments and the likely misconstrued portrayals of those such as Professor Dawkins and others. I mean, the moment I saw the preview with Stein asking his teacher about how we got here in the first place, I was looking for a shotgun to shoot myself in the face with. I own no shotgun, of course, otherwise I would not be writing this rant. Sooooo, if anyone sees it, be sure to tell me how (bad) it is. I have already read Dawkins' review. Of course I didn't expect an objective account from him, but his own personal stories about what happened to him and PZ Myers at a special showing of the documentary are quite amusing…and of course how the producers have edited and/or twisted the words of scientists to make them sound ridiculous. But that should probably be expected with any documentary: or at least any documentary dealing with religion or politics. Here's Dawkins' ravaging account and review:

Lying for Jesus?

    I haven't seen this movie, but I can already tell it is going to be ridiculous. Stein is an idiot. Check this vid out.
    Btw, where have you been?

    It is interesting how many of the critics of evolution by means of natural selection have no idea what it actually is. But then it's so much harder to refute "survival and reproduction of the fittest" than it is to say "XOMGIDIDN'TCOMEFROMNOMONKEY!!!1!" I was actually curious to go see it until I read that the documentary cites "Darwinism" as the reason for the Holocaust, and shows a scene of Ben Stein weeping at Dachau. To sell out the Shoah for this stupid film… I don't think I could watch it and not fly to Stein's residence for the sole purpose of punching him in the grapes.
