More Lies From the Discovery Institute

I know, I know: dog bites man. Anyway, I received this note from a colleague who attended a Seattle screening of Randy Olson’s Flock of Dodos:

…There were lots of ID folk in the audience, since the Discovery Institute is here in Seattle. So we had some pretty antagonistic questions. But what was really amazing is that Discovery Institute folks secretly tape recorded the whole event and posted a podcast with edited segments to their website, taking Randy’s comments out of context and making it look as if he was retracting the claims in his film.
Talk about slimy tactics! I’ve never seen a real scientist do anything like that. Seems to me that if they want people to think they are doing science, they’d best start acting like scientists.

You can hear the distortion here.
The creationist right (funny, how there isn’t a creationist left): still using words as weapons.

    no surprise that DI distorts, seems to be common among evangelicals. Any response from Randy yet.

    Did anyone with a conscience also tape the appearance? The best way to battle an editing job like htat would be to post a full recording.

    It’s news like this:

    that gives me hope.
    That these IDers aren’t beyond repair.
    Unless their subventricular ‘superhighways’ all end in culdesacs?
