Dover Trial Movie

It looks as though Paramount is indeed going to make a movie out of the Dover trial. They had someone there taking notes the whole time and now they’ve hired Ronald Harwood to write the script.

Among others are commentaries by Steve Fuller, witness for the defense in the trial; Alvin Plantinga, prominent Christian philosopher; Paul Gross, fellow Panda’s Thumb contributor; and Robert Pennock, my MCFS co-founder and witness…

His first contribution to the ongoing diatribe against Judge Jones’ ruling in the Dover case is the subject of this post. In his essay, Francisco beats…

Repent America – the same organization whose leaders were arrested in Philadelphia for protesting a gay pride event (the charges were eventually dropped, and I believe rightly so) – has rented out the Dover High School auditorium to hold a creationism seminar and “teach the truth about God’s creation.” But remember, this…
