|Where's the "Expelled" project for exposing the right's war on science?|
I'm sure there's an independent film out there somewhere that deals with the results of two Bush White House terms on the federal science agenda. I've been seeing things like this showing up on a cable channel, possibly sundance. There was one on the Patriot Act, there was one on the history of Karl Rove.. I can't recall seeing one specifically about science, but I suspect it's out there.
Truth be told, if anything I think the fundies are behind in the propaganda film business. Perhaps the bible colleges need to start adding art courses. They could start up their own independent movie circuit, I'd suggest somewhere in Florida as a good first venue. Call it something like the Independent Thought Festival, where, of course, every movie would say exactly the same thing, rehashing the same arguments that were debunked decades ago. It could be a whole new thing for them, supplementing the tedious pseudo-textbooks and occasional lawsuit fiasco.
I suspect Rupert Murdoch might be up for sponsoring something like that.
