The National Post on Expelled!

John Moore of the National Post writes about the movie Expelled! He has this to say about Intelligent Design:

ID is often referred to as Creationism light. In fact it's more Creationism in drag. Though its proponents claim scientific neutrality, they are usually overtly religious people affiliated with overtly religious institutions. They have written essays and books about why ID is science. And yet when all the sophistry is boiled down, the theory amounts to "living things are complicated. Some-one must have made them."

This has actually been borne out with the information about the Discovery Institute and Of Pandas and People since the Dover trial, which couldn't have ended worse for them. He adds:

It is often observed that just because you're paranoid doesn't mean everyone isn't out to get you. It is equally true that when everyone insists you are wrong about something it doesn't necessarily mean they're engaged in an elaborate conspiracy. You could just be wrong.
