The Anti-Defamation League blasts Ben Stein and the other cretins behind “Expelled.”
The film Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed misappropriates the Holocaust and its imagery as a part of its political effort to discredit the scientific community which rejects so-called intelligent design theory.
Hitler did not need Darwin to devise his heinous plan to exterminate the Jewish people and Darwin and evolutionary theory cannot explain Hitler’s genocidal madness.
Using the Holocaust in order to tarnish those who promote the theory of evolution is outrageous and trivializes the complex factors that led to the mass extermination of European Jewry.
God might have resurrected Jesus, but I doubt even He could bring back Ben Stein’s integrity or career.

Update: Over at National Review Online, John Derbyshire – who, when not talking about homosexuals, displays an ability to be rational – also takes Stein to task for the “science leads to killing people” nonsense (see my post below).
He then asks:
And there are NRO readers who are on board with this dreck? I need a drink.
Better get a keg, John – I’m willing to bet that most of the far right is on board with this dreck.
