    Okay, so maybe there’s a chuckle in Mann’s article, but the deceptive marketing of the pseudoscience of intelligent design creationism is no laughing matter. The propaganda masters at the Dishonesty Institute have given up that there is any actual science backing intelligent design creationism, so they are poisoning the well by marketing it to the faith community (which is of course where it originated) rather than to the science community.

    A review of the marketing of the execrable anti-science film “Expelled” shows the depths to which these creationists will go: Lying to actual scientists in interviews and then cherry-picking their responses, parroting long-disproven creationist lies coupling Darwin to Hitler, and packing secret pre-release showings with naive churchgoers. (Or is just good marketing?)

    Make no mistake about it, most “cdesign proponentsists” (Google the term, if you’re unfamiliar with it) – supporters of intelligent design creationism – are willfully ignorant of science, and count their scientific illiteracy as a virtue, not a sad deficit. Check out the Wikipedia article, “List of scientific societies explicitly rejecting intelligent design,” to see what the actual scientific community thinks of the pseudoscience of intelligent design creationism. Better yet, read Dr. Barbara Forrest’s book, “Creationism’s Trojan Horse: The Wedge of Intelligent Design” or her paper, “Understanding the Intelligent Design Creationist Movement: Its True Nature and Goals,” to see what these dangerous religious fanatics are really up to.

    Paul… thanx for your comment however, I don’t believe that this is the appropriate place to have this discussion so I’d appreciate it in the future if you would restrict your comments to the subject at hand. I am happy to have a discussion on Creationism v. Evolution but only offline.
