That’s the warning I received from an anonymous “wellwisher” (?) here at the Post-Darwinist:
I do hopw that the makers of “Expelled” are aware of the lawsuits launched against the makers of “What the Bleep…”, given that they obtained their interviews with several biologists unders false pretenses.
I asked a contact at the studio, and he tapped back,
No worries. Reality is, in the U.S. you can sue a baloney sandwich if you want.
Well, I guess that Bleeps all.
Note: An incident similar to this one may be what the anonymous correspondent has in mind.

In this podcast, I express my appreciation for the work of Larry Moran and PZ Myers in promoting intelligent design.
