Fundamentally Stoopid

Enough with politics! Lets have some fun at the expense of the Christianists. Wwweeeeee!

Noted evolutionary biologist and blogger PZ Myers reports:

I went to attend a screening of the creationist propaganda movie, Expelled, a few minutes ago. Well, I tried … but I was Expelled! It was kind of weird — I was standing in line, hadn’t even gotten to the point where I had to sign in and show ID, and a policeman pulled me out of line and told me I could not go in. I asked why, of course, and he said that a producer of the film had specifically instructed him that I was not to be allowed to attend. The officer also told me that if I tried to go in, I would be arrested. I assured him that I wasn’t going to cause any trouble.

I went back to my family and talked with them for a while, and then the officer came back with a theater manager, and I was told that not only wasn’t I allowed in, but I had to leave the premises immediately. Like right that instant.

I complied.

Myers was interviewed for the movie and was unaware at the time that it was actually an anti-evolution piece funded by right wing Christians. But, you see, it gets better. It drips with sweet, delicious irony. Because:

They singled me out and evicted me, but they didn’t notice my guest. They let him go in escorted by my wife and daughter. I guess they didn’t recognize him. My guest was …

Richard Dawkins.

He’s in the theater right now, watching their movie.

It just doesn’t get much better than that, does it?

    Gee, you must live in some strange FASCIST country, that such behaviour is tolerated from the “authorities”.

    Pray tell, where is it?

    “I assured him that I wasn’t going to cause any trouble.”

    Why? I mean why didn’t you ask for HIS ID, and threaten to report this JackBoot, a PUBLIC “servant”, for acting malevolently on behalf of a PRIVATE party?

    “I went back to my family and talked with them for a while, and then the officer came back with a theater manager, and I was told that not only wasn’t I allowed in, but I had to leave the premises immediately. Like right that instant.

    I complied.”

    Ditto; Why?

    The people must have been conditioned to be such compliant sheep in that country of yours. Perhaps there hasn’t been much evolution there.

    Pray tell, which country are we talking about?

    Sincerely,
    Dennis Revell.
