Friday Limericks: Expelled!

I hear a rumor that today there will be more than a handful of bloggers taking aim (metaphorically speaking) at the movie “expelled”. I can’t think of a better topic (or worse, I suppose) for this week’s Friday Limericks. Enough to make me wait up until midnight to post! Lots of good rhyming words here, and of course foul language counts… these are limericks, after all…

There once was a lawyer named Stein
Who argued the case for design—
He never did answer
Just who designed cancer—
Design, for Ben Stein, was benign

A fight over copyright spelled
The end of the line for Expelled;
Which, fortunate-ly
Meant that no one would see
Just how terribly bad the film smelled.

A plagiarized cell animation?
Then invoking the Aryan Nation?
In a monotone diction?
Ah, yes—it’s pure fiction!
A film made by “special” creation!

In an hour or two, I'll be fine--
It's just too much burritos and wine--
But for right now, oh boy, let
Me get to a toilet:
I've got to expel some ben stein.

Have at it!

Creationist Whine

Hooray for Expelled with Ben Stein!
A movie with purpose divine.
It shows how ID types, by elitist asswipes
Are victims of Darwinist slime.

Creatards are really swell guys.
Our science mislabeled as lies.
Surely, us clever blokes shouldn’t be butts of jokes;
Atheists merely despise…

Our answer that God in the gap,
Will smack down Darwinian crap!
Complexity reigns; and must come from God’s brains -
The designer, so shut up your yap!

Evolutionist fascists are fools.
They throw us right out of good schools,
For no valid reason, it’s just Nazi season,
Because they’re such Darwinist tools.

They treat us as if we’re not bright.
Insist that our “proofs” are not right.
Like snobs they expel us; we know they’re just jealous.
They snub us quite purely from spite!

A ridiculous fool called Ben Stein
Tells us lies in a monotone whine.
In the worst parts he's
Called Darwinists, Nazis:
See this film? No, I think I'll decline.

Of course that only rhymes in certain accents. But I couldn't miss the opportunity to use the word Nazis in a limerick.

Wonderful! I was trying to figure out how to do that!

Said the filmmaker, right out of church:
“Simple stealing is quite a bad urge,
But you’ll know, like any,
That stealing from many
Is just what you’ve asked for: Research*!”

*”Stealing from one source is plagiarism, but stealing from several sources is research.” Attributed to Wilson Mizner.

Ve vas not NARZIS!


Expelled has already wrought Win!
Both Myers and Dawkins got in -
Although not to see it
Oh, no; just to be it,
'Cause lying for Stein is not sin.

(yes, I know, lame.)

Expelled with Ben Stein is a tour -
Not de force, but de farce, to be sure.
With both pictures and sound
That were sto - er, ah, found,
ID's not as bad as this cure.

I wish an analogous documentary film was made concerning the DINOGLYFS or dinolits:

It seems that the ancient man not only saw but also documented the last megafauna (gigafauna, I should say).

Bruce Alberts it was who first accepted from his post as the president of the National Academy of Sciences USA that the biological machinery can be called as such, machinery, without asserting to metaphora. He gave the students that license in 1998. Other animations on the tiny cellular machineries apart from the Expelled movie can be seen in here:

It is interesting that it is the People of the Book who once more are the initiative spectators who have the balls to question the ambient amen and go against the loudy majority. Not the first time. Here's some statistics and charts regarding the success of the Jews in science and technological innovations when the others were too stubborn to change their minds:

This conference poster of mine shows how profoundly the continental, Haeckelian type of evolutionism drived not only the racial World War II but also the nationalistic World War I:
