The Expelled folks need to head to Turkey to document this. Darwin was expelled from the front cover of a government-sponsored science mag.
Maybe we should just call Turkey "chicken" from now on.

Ooooh, Ben Stein is "notorious" as an ID advocate now! Maybe now he'll finally get the, er, chicks. :p

Should we send him your email address so he can start hitting on you?

No, just give him my name. According to KairoFocus, that's the same thing. :p

Ben Stein is Expelled again! I guess that's what happens when you're Ben Stein and trolling for dollars, not Richard Dawkins waiving your honorarium and speaking for free.

The James Randi Education Foundation gives Expelled a Pigasus:
Quote
So, to the producers of "Expelled" goes the Pigasus, and a little free advice: next time, invest in a project that has a more grounded basis in reality. Perhaps unicorns, fairies, or Atlantis.

Cool!  Now they're an "award-winning documentary".

That's outrageous! If anyone is going to hit on Kristine it's us. By golly, she may be a witch/librarian/Galapagos mistress of Richard Dawkins but dammit she's OUR witch/librarian/Galapagos mistress of Richard Dawkins. If there are utterly juvenile and inappropriate advances to be made then dammit WE will be the ones to make them. If it's ok by Kristine that is.

Speaking of which, would you like to come back to my place and see my....erm....unique filing system? It involves every available flat surface, and some not so flat surfaces. I've been very bad, I could do with a lesson in the Dewey Decimal system....*

Louis

*ETA: I am aware that there is more to librarianship than alternatives to flat surfaces and the Dewey Decimal system. Tight hair pins, starched white blouses and half moon glasses for example. Oh dear I seem to have a) got myself into a lot of trouble and b) started down a road of erotic librarians that will take a crowbar to release me from.

He charged a Cancellation Fee?

I guess this is that "charity" that the religious folks like Ben love to brag about so much.

Has anyone told Kevin?  Maybe we should be nicer to him, or he'll stop posting and charge us a fee as well?

Hey Ben Baby

Where's the ID Plan?

...steal music....get money from da rubes

Well here's a new tune for you.
Turn up the volume.

*Sung in the key of Revolution by some old half dead white dudes*

Quote


You say you want no evolution
Well you know
We'd all want to change the world
You tell me that  ID's  revolution
Well you know
We'd all want to change the world
But when you talk about creationism
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be alright [x3]

You say you got a real solution
Well you know
We'd all want to see the plan
You ask me for a tribulation
Well you know
We're all doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you'll have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be alright [x4]

You say you'll change the constitution
Well you know
We'd all love to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of a Sistine God
You ain't going to make it with science anyhow
Don't you know know it's gonna be alright [x3]
Alright [x7]

Let's see what we can do to kill the sexy librarian fantasy for you with a little hypnotism

You are feeling sleepy ... sleepy...

Whenever you think "Sexy librarian" this image will dominate your thoughts ...



Snap.  You are now awake.

Far more effective than a crowbar.

Okay, I'm here, I'm here! :) Louis noticed that I've been AWOL.

I have papers to write, too! And one heckuva digitization project to finish, plus another paper (Lou, JAD jinx!;) to present, all within two weeks. Dewey Decimal? Never used it. You got something against the Library of Congress? :p

Yeah, nice news about the Pigasus Awards, bwa ha. That made my day. I'm going to DC next week to finally meet James Randi himself! *Beams* And Paul Kurtz.

The producers of Expelled: Logan Craft, Walter Ruloff, and John Sullivan, are also among the Five Most Irrational People of 2008. And by golly that's saying something.
ETA - I know they're the same thing, it just struck me funny. Are the producers each 1/3 of a person? Why not? :p

The comments are GREAT!  Especially the arguing about whether or not Stein being Jewish is appropriate to "send off" the Christian Kids in the world for a Christian School's Gradtardation.

Report Inappropriate Comment


Unfortunately one has to be "signed in" to "report inappropriate comment." Ben Stein, you have no idea (as don't so many Zionists) how much your Christian "supporters" hate you. They're not Zionist friends, they're Rapture-crazy. Ben in the lion's den. The "Darwinists" didn't put you there.

Frankly, I fear for the man. He could seriously be putting himself in danger from his "friends."

fitting end, yes.

i have about as much compassion for stein as I do for a scorpion or a tsetse fly.  being ripped apart by a mob of fundies would be proof of a vengeful god.

Don't worry. Poor dear Ben will be just fine. It's science that makes you kill people, as he comprehensively demonstrated in a cinematic footnote to the pimple on my arse. And they're not going to allow anything like science at Liberty, nossir.

The C*ultergeist tells us that Jews just need to be 'perfected' to be come good Republicans Xtians. Maybe all those newly-minted missionaries will take the opportunity to perfect Ben. In fact, they really would be failing in their duty if they didn't try.

Hmm. Someone should go and remind them.
