Roger Ebert slams Ben Stein

Roger Ebert is best known as a movie critic on TV, but he has been writing movie reviews for far longer. I've read a great number of his columns and his writing is in general excellent, with an obvious and profound depth of understanding of movies. Ebert has a fierce intellect backing up his writing, and that is on display very well in his review of the execrable "eXpelled: No Intelligence Allowed", the creationist "documentary" that is so chock full of lies that the creators' pants will be on fire for centuries. Ben Stein was the host of this steaming pile of celluloid, and Ebert aims his keyboard directly at him. Ebert's review is dead on target, and I recommend reading it. "eXpelled" was a major flop and will most likely sink beneath the waves of history, but don't think for a moment that the people out there trying to promote creationism won't use the same slimy tactics again and again. Being aware of them is half the battle.
