Roger Ebert has finally reviewed Ben Stein’s terrible propaganda piece, Expelled. The review is a work of genius satire. Ebert, a movie critic, clearly understands more of science and evolution than Stein, and clearly recognizes a hack pseudo-documentary when he see it.
The money quote:
This film is cheerfully ignorant, manipulative, slanted, cherry-picks quotations, draws unwarranted conclusions, makes outrageous juxtapositions (Soviet marching troops representing opponents of ID), pussy-foots around religion (not a single identified believer among the ID people), segues between quotes that are not about the same thing, tells bald-faced lies, and makes a completely baseless association between freedom of speech and freedom to teach religion in a university class that is not about religion.
