American Association for the Advancement of Science on Expelled

Folks may have already seen this statement about the Expelled movie, but here it is to reiterate the position of the American Association for the Advancement of Science:

AAAS further decries the profound dishonesty and lack of civility demonstrated by this effort. The movie includes interviews with scientists who report that they were deceived into appearing as part of such a production, and advance segments [of the film] broadly depict those who accept evolution as racist and sympathetic to Nazis. Such generalized insults are untrue and grossly unfair to millions of scientists in the United States and worldwide who are working to cure disease, solve hunger, improve national security, and otherwise advance science to improve the quality of human life.

Looking back over the last couple off months, the good news is that the movie has gotten relatively little mainstream press attention. I talk with several folks who are TV addicts (yikes) and consider themselves very up on pop culture, and they say they've still never heard of it.

And it's given us an easy target. Not bad, overall.
