This is why reality will always be stranger than fiction. PZ Myers, biologist and associate professor at the University of Minnesota, Morris, was not allowed to see an advance screening of the movie “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.” A movie he was interviewed for under false pretenses. Well, apparently the producers of the movie anticipated that PZ Myers might make such an attempt at their screening. However, what they didn’t seem realize was that Richard Dawkins was going to be in Minnesota for the 34th Annual Nation Conference of American Atheists. So while they kept Myers out, they let the Dawkins in. Apparently there was a Q and A session after the movie where Dawkins asked why PZ Myers had been, well, expelled from seeing the film. Here is an account from a Christian perspective. (h/t Chris)
I must say, Dawkins is a brave man. If it were me, I would watch the film, keep my mouth shut, and leave. However, it is exactly that type of tenacity which makes Dawkins such a strong advocate for reason, and entertaining to watch.
