A month ago we posted Science Film: “No Dinosaurs in Heaven”. You can still make arrangements to see the film on 25 October in New York (for details, see Evolution in the Classroom: No Dinosaurs in Heaven).
We thought the film was newsworthy because its exhibition comes in the middle of an ongoing cascade of nonsense posts about a creationist “documentary” from the neo-theocrats at the Discovery Institute‘s creationist public relations and lobbying operation, the Center for Science and Culture (a/k/a the Discoveroids, a/k/a the cdesign proponentsists).
We haven’t written much about the Discoveroids’ film, except for Klinghoffer: Butterflies Prove Creationism back in May, but they’ve posted about it an astonishing number of times.
Now it appears that the release of No Dinos, featuring people like Eugenie Scott, Executive Director of the National Center for Science Education (NCSE), is almost more than the Discoveroids can bear. Look what just appeared at their blog: NCSE and Eugenie Scott Attack Critics of Evolution with New Film, No Dinosaurs In Heaven. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
If you believe you are on the side of truth, you are most likely at ease. After all, truth remains long after attacks on it have ceased. It is usually those who feel threatened with the possibility of being wrong who make the most noise, who bare their teeth menacingly, and who feel most uncomfortable with respectful discourse and debate.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Right. That’s why the Discoveroids are attempting to implement their notorious wedge strategy. It’s because they’re at ease with being on the side of truth. Their fantastically funny post goes on:
This is the reason many Darwinists and atheists hesitate to debate science with proponents of intelligent design. As long as they can label opponents of Darwinian evolution as “unscientific” or “religious”, they don’t have to critically analyze or defend their beliefs to anyone.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Let’s read on:
This is also the reason for the National Center for Science Education (NCSE), which exists to support and promote the teaching of evolution in public schools. Its inflated name makes it sound like an official government agency or national public institution. It is actually a small outfit in Oakland, California, headed up by activist and former professor Eugenie Scott, who for the last twenty-five years has made it her mission to quell any opposition to the teaching of evolution in American public schools. … In the realm of science, the NCSE will do everything in its power to keep evolutionary theory’s critics and doubters silent. And that includes students and teachers.
Yes, Genie is just desperate activist on a mission to quell opposition to evolution. We continue:
The NCSE recently ramped up their defense of evolution with their first foray into documentary film, No Dinosaurs in Heaven.
“Defense” of evolution? BWAHAHAHAHAHA! If someone were to make a documentary about the physical nature of earth, which incidentally ridiculed the beliefs of the Flat Earth Society, who (other than flat-erthers) would deride it as a desperate “defense” of the spherical earth? Here’s more from the Discoveroids:
Make no mistake – the main target of Scott and No Dinosaurs in Heaven is “creationism” or creation science, the belief that the universe and living organisms originate from specific acts of divine creation, as detailed in the Biblical account. However, the scientific theory of intelligent design is also under attack from Scott, who, like many other members of the scientific establishment, still cannot understand or accept that intelligent design is a purely scientific pursuit wholly separate from creation science.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! This thing is so good you’ve got to click over to the Discoveroids’ blog to read it all. Here’s one more excerpt:
Eugenie Scott and the National Center for Science Education are bent on preserving evolutionary theory as the only explanation for life and origins taught in American classrooms. Their efforts are noisy, menacing, and disrespectful, and only serve to divert attention and delay progress. Our children deserve more than that.
Genie Scott — menacing! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
