Ben Stein is in a new movie called Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. It appears to be typical creationist/intelligent design whining about how their religion should be taught as science. (If you want more about this, I recommend the excellent blog The Panda’s Thumb.) And poor Darwin, who was a practicing Christian, is abused most shamefully.
But the extra-fun thing about Expelled is that there’s an article in the New York Times today about how they’ve been lying about their movie to get interviews with prominent scientists. Because God just looooves deceivers! P.Z. Myers of Pharyngula adds:
We were lied to, and they tricked us. It’s that simple. They ought to simply ‘fess up to it — it’s not as if we can take legal action against them or do anything to suppress their movie, since we all signed quite legal releases. They ought to take a little pride in the fact that, in their dedication to Jesus, they successfully deceived Richard Dawkins, Eugenie Scott, myself, and who knows how many others.
