I suppose that science is just some guy in a white robe?


What is wrong with this picture?

1- Jesus is 50 feet tall

2- Jesus is hitching for ride when He already has one.

3- Jesus is riding side saddle.

4- To accurately portray theistic evolution, the dinosaurs should be riding Jesus.

Nice alliteration, Louis. Spiro Agnew couldn't top that.

Spiro T Agnew? The world's favourite anagram?

To those pondering this, the classic anagram is of "Spiro Agnew" without the "T".

Unless you had something else in mind, Louis?

Absolutely!

Well.....possibly.

Oh that. GROW A ... SPINE? PINES? SNIPE? Uh...

Here's fun:

http://wordsmith.org/anagram/index.html

Got 3,500 anagrams for "Spiro Agnew". Adding the "T" -- he never left home without it -- yielded over 16,000. A cursory glance at the 16,000 yielded "Orating Spew". Works for me...nattering nabob of negativity that I am. :)

In case you missed it, you (with your closest 299 friends and $1800 to $2400) can still see Expelled!!

But you need to hurry - this offer is only good for this summer!

For details see here.

Kinda desperate if you ask me.  Why not wait for the DVD and play it in the church basement?

At this stage, ID is about whatever ID needs to be about in order to maximise the separation of fools from their money.

Ok, I've been busy for the last 3 weeks and pretty much offline so to speak.

Just catching up I see Expelled flopped in Canada, worse than in the US.  Check.  Kevin Miller is still spouting nonsense.  Check.  Ben Stein is still the most ignorant man in north america.  Check.

Have I missed anything else?

Well, some dirtbag sent an email to Myers threatening him with violence and got his wife canned from her job at the florists'. Oh yeah, that and Joy's still a loon and FTK's still an idiot.

So no, not much new.

The controversial film "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" will be re-released theatrically this summer across the United States to celebrate the film's legal victory over Yoko Ono, according to the documentary's producers. ...

"We had many individuals and groups who had planned to see the film, but decided not to because the cloud of doubt this lawsuit brought to the film," noted one of the film's producers, John Sullivan.

"We came out of the gate with strong momentum only to have our integrity questioned by this frivolous lawsuit. While we're thrilled with the film's having earned nearly $8 million during its first run; we've heard from enough people and groups who want to see it in their theaters that we've agreed to re-release it this time without an undeserved cloud over its head."

How does a lawsuit over content deter people from going to see a film? I guess it would increase the audience.

Assembled by Nathan Frankowski, who did some Bush-lionizing on The Path to 9/11, this journey into ignorance is hosted by Ben Stein, a former Nixon speechwriter whose deadpan face was introduced in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

Ahh and Denyse had such big expectations for Expelled in Canada.  Seems they saw much less of it than us and hated it more, if that's possible.  What's a canadian fundy to do?  I suppose this brought Denyse and Kevin Miller B closer in a spiritual yet consensual way.

I'm not sure why I'm bumping this, maybe I hate to see no one making fun of it anymore.

We need some new Ben Stein jokes.

Brace yourselves! Expelled!-dvd is coming! I got email from Disco Insitute:

Help Us Get Lawmakers Expelled.

We’re excited to be able to tell you that on October 21st Expelled: No Intelligence Allow, starring Ben Stein, will be released on DVD.  In Expelled, Stein  brilliantly exposed the widespread persecution of scientists and educators who are pursuing legitimate science that challenges Darwin’s theory of evolution.

[...]

First

We would like to widely distribute the DVD to key policy makers, opinion makers and leaders throughout the country.  Such distribution takes more money than we have budget for right now. So, we’re looking for donations to help underwrite the cost of sending the DVD to these individuals.  Donations of any amount are welcome.  The cost of purchasing and distributing one DVD is about $25, so your donation of $100 will help us to send 4 DVDs.  We want to send out as many DVDs as possible Click here to donate now.



Second

If you run a church or school bookstore and would like to stock Expelled we can help you get a special wholesale price, if you pre-order 25 copies or more. By ordering together in quantity we may be able to get the cost per DVD reduced up to 50% off of the retail price.  This is a limited one time offer and we estimate the cost of 25 DVDs to be $300, plus shipping.  For bulk orders contact us at the e-mail or phone number below.



We have to move quickly to guarantee that the costs don’t go up.  The DVD is going into production soon, so orders must be placed and paid for by Wednesday, Sept. 17th.  Please contact Janine Dixon at jdixon@discovery.org, (206) 292-0401 x108 to start the order process.



Thank you for your support,

Ha!  I donated to the NCSE and got my Judgement Day DVD yesterday.  Watched it again enjoyed it even more than the first time.

The actor who portrayed Behe was most excellent, but I wonder if he'll get typecast playing morons.

So what happened with the DI denying they had anything to do with the movie?

Part of the cost goes to support the Casey Luskin DI tour bus.

Sorry, Kev-0, I've already spent my DVD budget this month ordering "Religulous" now showing in theaters across the country and picking up rave reviews.
