Hey! There is apparently a new science blogger out there who is tearing the place up so much that even Popular Science has noticed. But first it stoops to notice the ID fantasy piece fronted by Ben Stein, who has shown himself to be as clueless about science as he is inflection.
A quick search of the web provides the background: the production company for the film is the same that produced The Passion of the Christ; its CEO and one of the film's producers recently questioned the Godliness of the administration at Baylor University over an ID-related incident; and the producers used Stein as the narrator specifically because he wasn't "overtly religious."Well, "used" is certainly the right word ... and that probably stems from Stein not being overly intelligent to match his not being overly religious.
But then there is mention of this new guy:
Professor Paul Zachary Myers at the University of Minnesota is one of the scientists interviewed for the film. He's recently been caught up in a blog exchange with the film's producers regarding this and other topics to do with the movie.Do you suppose we should warn PZ Myearshertz?
