I have to hand it to Expelled producer Mark Mathis: he has guts. No ability to tell the truth at all, but he has guts. He showed up at the offices of Scientific American with a copy of the crockumentary in hand, and let the folks there take a look. Needless to say, they weren't overwhelmed by the accuracy of the movie. In fact, "savaged" wouldn't be too strong a word to use. Check out the reviews there for a bit of schadenfreude. The interviews with John Rennie and Eugenie Scott (both past TAM attendees!) are particularly enlightening.
