The same small batch of Creationist Ph.D. scientists who make an appearance anytime you’re looking for critics of evolution are now featured in a new documentary produced by Creation Ministries International called Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels:
They got 15 Ph.D.s to appear in the film. 15! That’s almost the size of a single small college’s biology department. So that’s persuasive…
Comments are closed on the video, of course, because Creationists, unlike real scientists, only like information to flow in one direction. If they opened up the comment thread, maybe the scientist who said the human race should be “devolving, not evolving” would realize that would actually be the same thing… and the one who trots out the cliché line about how, if evolution is really true, then there’s “no basis for morality” would hear all sorts of challenges.
(Interesting note: I didn’t hear a single woman’s voice in the trailer… which, I suspect, is either the result of a fundamentalist mindset or good decision-making by women everywhere.)
The movie premieres in one church in October and you can sign up here. (I’ll reimburse registration costs for the first few people who send me a review of the movie that I can post after attended opening night.)
