Ben Stein Keeps Rolling

Monday, April 28th, 2008

(Image from Andy Lyons) I don’t think we need to worry about Expelled. Ben Stein is doing a perfectly fine job of destroying its credibility all by himself. Stein was on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last Friday. This is what he said (minus the unfunny banter with Ferguson): Darwinism doesn’t explain the […]

Playing Chess with Pigeons

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

Playing Chess with Pigeons I found a good blog called Playing Chess with Pigeons, by Troy Britain. He mostly focusses on evolution and creationism. He has a lot of good articles.

The Coral Ridge Hour is the TV show of the late D. James Kennedy. The episode they aired last Sunday was devoted to Expelled. Apparently they were expelled from math class as well. This “hour” was only 30 minutes long. Maybe they call it that, because when you watch it, it feels like an hour. […]

Brian Fitzpatrick wrote an opinion piece titled “Does Barack Obama disdain religion?” The article is about this widely-reported comment of Obama’s: It’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion […]

It Will Be Expelled from Theaters in About a Week

Friday, April 18th, 2008

The Blue Collar Scientist has published a meta-analysis of reviews of that giant steaming turd that Ben Stein expelled from his rectum. BCS says: In my searchings, I didn’t find any positive reviews that weren’t associated with religious or right-wing political publications — and then only two of those. He then presents excerpts from a […]
