Here's an interesting review of the dishonesty of The Ben Stein film Expelled. What's interesting about it is the amount of energy religious groups are spending trying to attack science. One might think that religion is so well established in American society as to not feel threatened by science. One would be wrong.

In other propaganda news, Blackfive, a site run mostly by current and former US Soldiers, reports that Al Jazeera actually does a better job of reporting on the war in Iraq than any American media outlets. I was a bit surprised at first, but not so much now.

I didn't actually click the link to the review, but I've read several of them lately.

I was driving around the other day, and thinking about the whole science/religion conflict, and it really does seem pretty one-sided, doesn't it?

The thing that really gets me about it is that scientists constantly work to find new evidence to prove their points and have VOLUMES of it, but all arguments from religion come from one book (for whichever religion) with uncertain origins.
