    Just because someone makes statements, no matter how inappropriate does not mean a theory is right or wrong.

    It would not matter if they had said they were going to kick religion up a notch, it still would have no bearing on the validity of a theory.

    It should be interesting, I have noticed quite a stir on Digg lately every time it is mentioned. It seems many people are sensitive to the subject of Evolution. It also appears that the focus on the film is on academic censorship more than defending intelligent design - but I guess I'll see.

    Expelled has used a made up controversy to push their relgious views, do not think they haven't. Discovery Institute (you may or may not remember their famous wedge document) is helping fund and promote it.

    This is yet another move by religious fundies to try to sneak creationism into schools. Anyone who denies this is really only fooling themselves.

    By crying academic freedom they are trying to make available to allied teachers the ability to place god in the gaps of evolution. This is a very familiar trick by religious people. When they can't get what they want, they sugarcoat it, put on some lipstick, and run it by the courts again.

    When a judge, appointed by Bush the Anointed, says its a duck, you can bet it quacks. But no, the judge was part of a vast conspiracy....y'all know the rest.

    i agree with this assessment.

    he was exposing the double standard that is affecting an open discussion.

    very enlightening.
