Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed–Scientific American’s Take

The top page of what’s become so large a response at SciAm that it requires an index:

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed–Scientific American’s Take

Don’t miss John Rennie’s (Editor-in-Chief/Soldier-for-Darwin of SciAm) 5 single spaced pages of Expelled diatribe here:

Ben Stein’s Expelled: No Integrity Displayed

I note that in what must be thousands of words Rennie wrote about Expelled, where he was trying to play down persecution of the expelled (he mentions Rick Sternberg, Caroline Crocker, and no others), Rennie seems to have conveniently forgotten to mention Guillermo Gonzalez. I find this interesting because Gonzalez’ work in extra-solar planetary discovery was the cover story of the October 2001 issue of Scientific American.

I suppose the irony there is something even John Rennie appreciates and wants to avoid.

Rennie can’t say he isn’t aware of Gonzalez either. He wrote a response to an Uncommon Descent article less than a year ago which appears here:

Scientific American, Freemasons, Illuminati Join Forces in Global Conspiracy

Expelled is not opening in Canada at the same time as in the US. My sense is that they are not sure of their plans yet. I hope, for their sakes, they get worthwhile local advice before plunging in. Backer Walt Ruloff is a Canadian; presumably he understands that the situation is very different here, at least for the present. O'Leary
Many countries are further down the road to being fully secular, but the USA is catching up fast.
What does that have to do with ID? pubdef
I think those in the USA need to ramp up this whole issue and make it global. Many countries are further down the road to being fully secular, but the USA is catching up fast. We need good ID teaching materials, videos like PBS have, lectures, tours by the big guys and so on OUTSIDE of the USA. CN
I think an analogous documentary film should also be made out of the DINOGLYFS or dinolits: http://www.helsinki.fi/~pjojala/dinosaur.htm It seems that the ancient man not only saw but also documented the last megafauna (gigafauna, I should say, really!) pauli.ojala@gmail.com Biochemist, Finland http://www.helsinki.fi/~pjojala/Expelled-the-Movie-Evolution-Intelligent-Design-ID.htm Pauli Ojala
For a second I thought that was Jason Rennie (Sci Phi Show/Design enthusist). But it says John Rennie. What a relief. DeepDesign
by the way, how much international exposure is Expelled getting? Is it opening in other countries soon? Collin
