It's been a while since I rapped with you. The combination of a new job and the unending stupidity of Intelligent Design Creationism have conspired to make blogging less compelling than I'd like.
As a case in point, see this from Denyse O'Leary about the ridiculous spat of PZ Myers' explusion from a recent preview of the movie "Expelled":
"It is much easier to solve Myers's problem about getting a ticket than to solve the more serious, science-related problems detailed in the documentary - the problems of people whose careers were destroyed by Darwinists simply because they know reasons why Darwinism isn't true."What reasons would these be, I wonder?
According to early reviews of the film, it doesn't even bother to define what it means by "Darwinism", "Evolution", or - staggeringly - "Intelligent Design". Even so, it blames evolution for "Communism, the Berlin Wall, Fascism, the Holocaust, atheism and Planned Parenthood", while presenting Intelligent Design as a religious viewpoint.
All science so far.
And let's look at just one of the scientists who's career was "destroyed" by Darwinists, according to "Expelled" - Caroline Croker.
This is a lady who gained a PhD in immunopharmacology, and who still managed to tell a second-year cell biology class that macroevolution was not established because "No one has ever seen a dog turn into a cat in a laboratory".
Does Denyse O'Leary think this is a reason why "Darwinism isn't true"? Inquiring minds want to know...
