The idiot Mathis has spoken again. This is a cross-post from Talkorigins:
|The public is not aware of the materialist, atheistic agenda|
Yeah, funny that. You'd think the public would be aware of a materialist, atheistic agenda pushed by pastors and priests, people from all religions, cultures, and perspectives--since that seems so unlikely and unbelievable. But they're just not, they tend to think that if religious and irreligious folk alike can agree on chemistry, biology, and physics, that it's just chemistry, biology, and physics. It takes a real dedicated religious moron to assume that the science done in Catholic schools is part of the materialist, atheistic agenda, and that heroic dedicated religious moron is Mark Mathis. Here's part of his interview:
|Mark Mathis is Associate Producer of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, a forthcoming documentary that says the Darwinists of American universities are suppressing scientific inquiry.|
World on the Web: What makes Expelled different from other “radical idea” documentaries, like the ones Michael Moore has produced?
Mark Mathis: This film is not told from a conservative worldview, though that accusation will happen. Most of the documentary films that have been well done are driving an agenda that comes from the left side of the political spectrum. Films that do (come from this perspective) are less ambitious, more true to documentary form. Our agenda is that science needs to be free, and that the freedom’s not there. When you come to a Michael Moore or Al Gore film, the message is, “we have the answer; and everyone else, just shut up.” Expelled wants to do the opposite: stop the shutting down of scientific inquiry and return freedom to science.
WoW: Who is the film’s target demographic?
Mathis: Our target is the general public. The public is not aware of the materialist, atheistic agenda that is driven by elitists. We know that within the academic elitist institutions across this country, we are going to persuade almost absolutely no one. They’ve stopped looking at the evidence in an unbiased way.
WoW: And who do you think will be most interested in seeing this?
Mathis: People who care about freedom. People who are sick and tired of elitists dictate to them what truth is, people who believe that when they look at nature, they see reason to pursue scientific inquiry, and people who believe in God will have a strong interest in seeing this film. Having a free society will ultimately show us the truth.
The rest is here:
Let's see, dishonest Mark, Stein has already told us that this is a free society, which he attributed to capitalism. And having this free society will ultimately show us the truth? Looks like it already did, which is why you want an unfree society to enforce your lies into the curricula and into the science labs.
And gee, Mark, you're not going to persuade anyone who's well-educated, including the many religious academics? Why not? Don't you have any truth to tell us? I'd think that if you had any truth, you'd be able to persuade some people. What's the point of merely persuading those who don't know enough to judge? Money and propaganda? 'Fraid so.
"...People who believe in God will have a strong interest in seeing this film."
Ooh, you just contradicted yourself there, idiot boy. You said that the academic elites wouldn't be interested, and a significant number of those happen to be religious folk (like at the Catholic university I attended for a couple of years). The intersection between religious folk and "academic elites" just happens to make a contradictory claim by you, hence you're lying once again.
Then again, do you ever cease to lie in your interviews, Mathis?
