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.
Darwinian evolution with its blind watchmaker thesis makes me think of a great battleship on the ocean of reality. Its sides are heavily armored with philosophical barriers to criticism, and its decks are stacked with big rhetorical guns ready to intimidate any would-be attackers. In appearance, it is as impregnable as the Soviet Union seemed to be only a few years ago.
