Who is this monolithic "we" ?
People who understand science, and the scientific method, and, so it seems, these idiots' employers, as not a single one of them was fired, as Stein's movie claims.
Oh come on, regardless if anyone was fired...there's no denying that there is this very elitest holier than thou view amongst many sectors of academia, almost like thought police...that goes jihad whenever anything approaching "intelligent design" is flirted with. People act like it's on par with holocaust denial. I am diametrically opposed to the fundamentalist Sharia law, fundamentalist Christianity, etc that dictates many institutions and schools of thought in the world...
but I also see how it can go the other way. "Nope...nope! Just take your creationist filth elsewhere!"
It's like a scientist can't even muse around the mere notion of intelligent design, without being labeled a fundie creationist. I think most people reject creationism, including most the people espousing exploration of ID. Least I'd hope so.
