Expelled, The Irony

I really want to just give the link to this and stand back, but some of you will need the background.
Last year the creationists started talking about a film – Expelled. A few people on the anti-ID side (e.g. PZ Myers, Eugenie Scott, and some English guy called Dawkins) had been interviewed, ostensibly for a film about faith and science, but in reality for a feature-length whinge about how evil Darwinists are.
The film is due to come out on the 18th of April, but there have been some pre-screenings. A few of the anti-ID side noticed this, and that it seemed fairly easy to get an invite, and one poor soul had even seen it.
Last night there was a screening in Minnesota, which is where PZ Myers lives. Now read on

    I went for the cell biology angle myself and kept away from the evol/creat perspective.
