Expelled: Weekend data April 25 2008
Submitted by PvM on Sun, 2008-04-27 18:37.
After entering the top 10 in 8th place, "Expelled" has dropped to 13th place with Friday returns dropping to 40% of the previous Friday returns. In numbers this translates to $505,000 in 1,041 theatres or $485 per theatre and $97 per showing (assuming 5 showings). In addition 11 theatres have dropped the movie which opened in 1052 theatres. May I suggest the movie "Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay" as an alternative?
Antievolutionists Say the Darndest Things
Antievolutionists often express outrage over alleged incivility from those who oppose their efforts to evade the establishment clause of the First Amendment. But they have no difficulty in dishing out the abuse themselves. Here is a sample from the Invidious Comparisons thread that documents egregious behavior on the part of the religious antievolution advocates.
IDC advocate Phillip E. Johnson:
Gould’s uncomfortable situation reminds me of the self-created predicament of Mikhail Gorbachev in the last years of the Soviet Empire. Gorbachev recognized that something had gone wrong with the Communist system, but thought that the system itself could be preserved if it was reformed. His democratic friends warned him that the Marxist fundamentalists would inevitably turn against him, but he was unwilling to endanger his position in the ruling elite by following his own logic to its necessary conclusion. Gould, like Gorbachev, deserves immense credit for bringing glasnost to a closed society of dogmatists. And, like Gorbachev, he lives on as a sad reminder of what happens to those who lack the nerve to make a clean break with a dying theory.Link
