Everyone else is blogging about this, so we don’t want to be left out. There’s a new documentary, The Revisionaries, about the recent craziness of the Texas State Board of Education (SBOE) when it was being run by Don McLeroy, the creationist dentist.
McLeroy is no longer on the SBOE because he was defeated in a primary election back in 2010 by Thomas Ratliff, but he remains a hero to creationists. Because of the publicity generated by the documentary, he appeared a couple of days ago on the Stephen Colbert show, and you can watch a video of that here. It’s about six and a half minutes long.
McLeroy holds nothing back: Somebody’s got to stand up to the experts, man and dinosaurs walked the earth at the same time, the complexity of the cell, atheists think something came from nothing, etc. It’s all old news, but it’s definitely worth a look.
There’s also a two-minute trailer from the documentary (which takes a few moments to get started and doesn’t play too smoothly) and that’s interesting too. Check it out.
