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.
