Mark Mathis sort of shot the movie in the foot when he refused to let PZ Myers into the film where he (Mathis) would be answering questions later.
He pretended that it was because Myers wasn't invited, but the invites were sent out via Internet. Richard dawkins got in as a "guest" under Myers name. Guests didn't show on the list.
Now why would Mathis not want Myers there when he was thanked at the end of the film?
Tell me this......where did you hear the producer admit to outright obfuscation of facts and hyperbole?
I linked this very broadcast on Era's blog about ID. Don't believe us...listen for yourself. Mathis is NOT your friend. He put his foot so far in it he makes all believers look like agenda driven idiots. There are bad apples in every barrel. Bad scientists, bad believers. Mathis is a bad man all around. Scientists and believers alike should suspend their disagreements long enough to out this guy for what he is. A spin doctor and a liar.
Pastafarian? Do you mean Rastafarian, or are you making a funny.
It isn't a joke. I didn't really scroll up to who said it, so I won't discuss it in context, but instead, will make an attempt at educating you.
When someone somewhere decided that ID should be taught in the science class, it angered some people. It angered them because ID is not science as science defines itself. It's untestable and unproveable. A lot of science minded folks believed, maybe for right or wrong, that it was just an agenda to get creationism taught in public schools.
So these people that were angered started preaching the gospel of the "Flying Spaghetti Monster." The FSM supposedly created the whole universe with his noodley appendage. And they said that if you were going to allow ONE unproveable doctrine into science class, then you had to allow them all - including the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
Adherants of the Flying Spaghetti Monster are other known as "Pastafarians." get it? *rimshot*
