Get a Grip!

Ben Stein's new movie, Expelled, is generating a small storm because it's poking fun at evolution. The ID crowd are lining up behind it in large numbers. But the joke is on them. Remember, Ben is a comic with tongue deep in the recesses of his cheek. Far from a critique of evolution, Ben recycles the common batch of fallacies often believed by people who know little about how evolution actually works.

In the end the movie has served as a wonderful baitpile gathering ill-informed flies of all colors both pro- and anti-evolution.

This is rich.
