i'm interested to learn that a) dawkins was interviewed in the film, and yet b) was not invited to the preview - nor, apparently, were other people interviewed - i'm guessing just the ones that held the "wrong" viewpoint. rather discredits the idea of this being a "evenhanded" - if it gives a fair representation of everyone's viewpoints, they wouldn't be afraid to let everyone interviewed for the film see the final result.

and i love the way they apparently insist that the political/religious/sociological conclusions people draw from evolutionary theory is a necessary result of the science. of course, no one will base a political agenda on an idea like intelligent design! just like people have never persecuted other people for religious reasons...

That would all be probably more amusing if I had any idea who Richard Dawkins or this PZ person were, or anything about this pseudo documentary, or really gave a goog god damn about the general stupidity of "intelligent design"


ok disparagement concludes please continue

Richard Dawkins is the self-proclaimed atheist pope.

Even if it's worth less than a quarter nowadays.
