Gay Scientists Isolate Christianity Gene
The next one requires a bit of setup. A documentary called Expelled has recently come out. The producers of the documentary misrepresented their project and got Richard Dawkins and PZ Meyers to speak about evolution for the film.
When Dawkins and Meyers tried to get into a special showing of the film, the producers had the police through Meyers out, fearing the results of having someone who actually knows some biology in the audience. But they failed to recognize Richard Dawkins and let him in to see the movie. See this video for their discussion of the whole affair.
The thesis of the Expelled makers is that there is a vast evolutionist/naturalist conspiracy at work in biology that has been actively suppressing scientific findings that would refute Darwinism and corroborate Intelligent Design. Dawkins' and Meyers' view has been, appropriately, that none of the proponents of Intelligent Design have been able to pass muster in the real arena of scientific peer review, so they have only been able to peddle their nonsense to eager church audiences where the standards of scientific scrutiny are lacking, to say the least.
