The Truly Expelled: Victims of the Culture War

I found this to be an excellent post. Blake Stacey summarizes many examples of the most atrocious reasons why scientists need to maintain a strong presence in the debates surrounding science in this country. The writers of Expelled scream persecution of creationists intelligent design proponents, when the evidence suggests just the opposite. I could make the analogy to the tactics of the Brownshirts, but I would hate to break Godwin's Law so early on a Friday night.

Bruce Alberts it was who first accepted from his post as the president of the National Academy of Sciences USA that the biological machinery can be called as such, machinery, without asserting to metaphora. He gave the students that license in 1998. Other animations on the tiny cellular machineries apart from the Expelled movie can be seen in here:

It is thrilling that it is the People of the Book who once more are the initiative spectators who have the balls to question the ambient amen and go against the loudy majority. Not the first time. Here's some statistics and charts regarding the success of the Jews in science and technological innovations when the others were too stubborn to change their minds:

This conference poster of mine shows how profoundly the continental, Haeckelian type of vulgar evolutionism drived not only the 'Politics-is-applied-biology' Nazi takeover but also the nationalistic collapse of the World War I. It was Charles Darwin himself, who raised the monstrous Haeckel in the spotlight as the greatest authority in the field of human evolution, even in the preface to his Descent of man in 1871:
Biochemist, drop-out (Master of Sciing)

I have collected about 200 quotes and figures on the importance of evolutionary frauds and recapitulation here:
