One of the largest Facebook groups supporting Ben Stein‘s movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed is (seriously) named this:
I. Love. Irony.
The creator of the group had to put this (possibly more amusing) message up:
I have tried and tried and THERE IS NO WAY TO CHANGE THE SPELLING. PERIOD. I have followed everyones suggestions and there is NO WAY. If you comment on this site about the spelling i will delete the comment…..if you email me about the spelling i will delete your email……if you dont like the spelling of this group name than you will have to take it up with Facebook themselves. They are the ones that make it so i cannot change the name. There is nothing i can do to change the Spelling of this group….however incompetent that may make me sound to you it is reality……
If none of the above satisfies you than start your own ben stein group with the correct spelling and invite all of your friends to your correctly spelled group and the world will be better because you correctly spelled the title of your group…….you will not hurt my feelings in the least.
While we’re on Facebook, though, let’s compare some numbers. How large are the groups in support of the intellectually-bankrupt movie?
|Facebook Group||Members in Group|
|I AM EXPELLED: “No intelligence allowed.”||2,953|
|EXPELLED the movie||873|
|EXPELLED: NO INTELLIGENCE ALLOWED!||740|
|Suporters of Ben Steins Movie – Expelled “No Intelligance Allowed”||700|
|Ben Stein’s Expelled!||390|
And on the flip side?
Only one group I found had over 100 members:
|Protest Ben Stein’s Expelled||835|
We’re bad at this whole Facebook thing.
On a brighter note: The National Center for Science Education, through its website Expelled Exposed, will publish its full response to the movie’s claims tomorrow.
