Darwinism and popular culture: Darwinists resort to whining when they are not popular (Also, this just in, water runs downhill)
Clearing out the Inbox, I find this item, "Charles Darwin film 'too controversial for religious America'"
A British film about Darwin recently failed to find a US distributor because his theory of evolution is too controversial for American audiences, according to its producer (Anita Singh,The Daily Telegraph, 11 Sep 2009).
Most likely, the film was rejected because it is a bore. No one here cares about Charles and Emma Darwin. A tell-all about Bill and Hillary Clinton or Barack and Michelle Obama, now ....
This whole fake uproar reminds me of a recent occasion when some pundit from the States claimed that Canadians have a growing fear of science.
Canadians have a growing fear of losing their jobs, being unable to pay their mortgage or rent or heat bills, and not having health care when we need it. And anyone who offers opinions in public fears the "human rights" industry. All very advisedly, I may say. We can easily address some of these problems (especially the last, by just getting rid of the "human rights" industry), not always so easily the others.
Find out why there is an intelligent design controversy:
