Should be good for a laugh.
Ben Stein can be pretty funny and this parody looks to be one of his best.

Re: Should be good for a laugh.
Yup, and not even a really good comedian.

The one big things going for the ID and Creationism folk is that they stay in a setting where there is no need to tell the truth or even support their allegations. It is an environment made for a spokesperson like Stein.

Re: Should be good for a laugh.
I don't think it was meant to be a parody, or that the folk watching it will see it as a parody.

But stop and think about it.

It is an infomercial posing as a documentary asserting that it is about science but containing nothing but unsupported non-science insinuations and innuendo presented by a second rate comedian.

What else can it be called but a parody.
