According to Wired, we may start to see normally mild-mannered and reserved scientists, rip off their lab coats and take to the streets for some fisticuffs. The issue is that: "despite 150 years of research and a near-universal scientific consensus behind them, evolutionists are losing the public relations battle to intelligent design advocates." The reason: "(Intelligent design supporters) tell a simple story, one that a 6-year-old can understand."
Sounds like a familiar story...
The scientists are about to get some help courtesy of a new film, Flock of Dodos, that Wired calls "a gentler Super Size Me." It opens at the Tribeca Film Festival this month.
Sadly this too seems like a very familiar strategy. It's classic liberal American protest. Faced with an enemy who works at the level of remedial sound bites, they say, I know, lets make an art film, that'll shut them up.
