The Register on Dawkins and “Expelled”

The U.K.’s Register says Dawkins may protest too much:

Speaking at the Atheist Alliance convention in Virginia, Dawkins said: “I was never given a clue that these people were a creationist front,” adding that he wouldn’t have agreed to take part in the documentary if he had known its purpose.

Here at El Reg we are not known as supporters of the creationist or intelligent design camps, and we’d love to swing into a full and hearty rant about the evils of those crazy god-bothering loons in the US etc, really we would (you should see the letters bag when we have a pop at them. Hilarious).

But in this case, we can’t really see that Dawkins has much to complain about.

Further:

But we suspect Dawkins and his mates are upset because their participation in the film makes them look a little foolish. Dawkins, of course, has made programmes himself in which his “opponents” don’t come off looking quite so hot, so perhaps this is a object lesson in karma, eh? (Not that this would exist in a completely random Universe)
