Re: My Personal Reaction
What will be the response of the scientific community? Will they send out Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and Daniel Dennet (Brights???) to further alienate the masses? Is a measured response that makes clear why ID isn't science why this is the ID community's fault within the ability of the scientific community? I'm frankly very worried.

I don't know that there is a real lot that the established scientific community can do that would make much of a difference. They might send out Dawkins et al, or other professionals to speak out, but I can hear Cletus in the audience thinking to himself "Aw heck, I doesn't understand all this science crap these evilutionist guys is talkin! But the Bible says I ain't descended from no goddamn ape!"

Wilful ignorance, misunderstanding of science, propaganda, evolutionist conspiracy theories and a (potentially) popular film may be an unfortunate combination. I just hope it doesn't become very popular.
