Also, Read more Allan MacNeill and the response...
|Interesting: I was expelled from "Expelled" because my interview was "boring." Surprising, then, that my students have twice nominated me as the outstanding lecturer at Cornell University and that I was given a special award for my teaching by the Cornell Learning Skills Center.|
But maybe I was a little boring in that interview. After all, I didn't use ad hominem attacks against my opponents, nor did I try winning a Godwin Award (for most egregious application of Godwin's Law), nor did I lie from the beginning to the end of the interview the way the film makers did. Silly me!
And all of that beside the point, it still doesn't explain why Will Provine's interview (with essentially the same content, but probably a little more pizazz) was also omitted. It couldn't possibly have to do with the fact that he and I invite IDers and YECs to make presentations in our evolution courses, and that this fact totally undermines the basic premise of "Expelled"?
Oops, sorry, I forgot: as Ben Stein (a towering intellect in political history, philosophy, and science) has said repeatedly, "No Darwin, no Hitler."
Or, to put it even more succinctly,
"No integrity, no audience."

|Wow, this is getting really petty and ridiculous. Sorry to rain on your little witch hunt, Allen, but Will Provine has a very prominent role in our film. As for your interview, perhaps boring was too strong of a word. In making this film, I sat through dozens of hours of footage. Some of it stood out, and most of it didn't. Yours was in the latter category. Who knows, it may end up somewhere in the DVD extras. You're looking for a conspiracy where there is none.|
