Funny / Expelled

  • A screening of Expelled was held in the Mall of America in Minnesota. The noted Minnesota atheist blogger and biologist PZ Myers, whom the makers of the film had interviewed, signed up for tickets to the event. While waiting to get into the movie, he was pulled aside and asked to leave, as the producers didn't want him in the theater, since they had kinda, sorta interviewed him under false pretenses and didn't want to be called out on it. So he left, but his family and guest were allowed in. That guest? Much more widely noted British atheist and biologist Richard Dawkins. Who was also interviewed by the producers for the movie kinda, sorta under false pretenses. And he did call them out on it, after the movie was aired. You can listen to Dawkins and Myers discuss the incident here.
