Bloggers, you have a job to do

CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE EVOLUTIONARY APPARATUS DIRECTIVE
• OBEY • OBEY • OBEY • OBEY • OBEY • OBEY • OBEY • OBEY • OBEY • OBEY • OBEY • OBEY •

We need to get the NCSE’s counter-site to the hideous little propaganda film, Expelled, to rank higher in the search engines. The way to do this is for lots and lots of you to link to the Expelled Exposed site with the word Expelled. It’s not hard: just copy this code into a blog post.

<a href="http://expelledexposed.com/"><i>Expelled</i></a>

Whenever you write about the movie, use that link. Do it a bunch of times, if you want. It’s more effective if many people use the same link every time, though, than for one person to be repetitive.

    Actually, I don’t know why we don’t just suppress everything about ID and Expelled. We have the courts, the media, and education all on the side of suppression, so I can’t help but think our Inquisitors are simply a bunch of hopeless slackasses.

    To those lamenting the lack of info on the site: They say at the top that they will be posting a full review on April 15. I assume (and hope) it will become more informative and complete at that time.

    PZ,

    Not good advice. Thousands of people linking to a website with identical text will very likely trigger a ‘Google bomb’ flag and have the very opposite effect that is hoped for.

    Much better that people link with a variety of linking text.

    2.Being a speech writer for the worst president ever (and yes I’m counting W.Bush and U.S. grant)

    It is the Evolutionist’s cowardly fears of the TRUTH that makes this moment so delectable. Ben Stein is a Rock! HIS strength brings the Unbelievers’ lies into the light. May God bless, B.S.!

    All atheistic attacks against Ben Stein and Expelled – a humble man with Ein stein’s intellect adrift in a modern world of sin – are artless hacks.

    Copyright infringement is such a weak case. Who – after all – designed the cell? Who gave Harvard permission to copy the cell’s design and to put it on video? Did they pray over it? Were one to start on PAGE ONE, eventually one would understand. No copyrights apply to HIS works.

    A Google bomb? Is that the best the vaunted avenger of atheism can mount? (If only Jesus were his sidekick…)

    Rush Limbaugh continually advertises for the movie. PZ Myers – sir, you are no Rush Limbaugh!! What good is a google bomb against the towering intellect of Rush Limbaugh? He could defeat any of the weak arguments of Neo-Darwinian Post-Objectified Evolutionism with half his brain firmly tied behind his back.

    The TRUTH is on the side of the Righteous, but it is not too late to see the light! God is LOVE. One can still accept JESUS Christ – it is not too late to abandon the selfish willfulness of intellect and desire.

    Peace to you.

    “…”I never imagined the expelled idiots could be this unethical.”

    I think it’s time that everyone to stop being so surprised by those who wave their “belief flags” being deceitful and manipulative. Their overwhelming confidence that their beliefs are right gives them all the authority they need to break every one of their precious ten commandments. They are mindless zombies without compassion or empathy who will stop at nothing to attack those who question the reality of their pathetic world-view.

    “There is something feeble and a little contemptible about a man who cannot face the perils of life without the help of comfortable myths. Almost inevitably some part of him is aware that they are myths and that he believes them only because they are comforting. But he dare not face this thought! Moreover, since he is aware, however dimly, that his opinions are not real, he becomes furious when they are disputed.” [Bertrand Russell, "Human Society in Ethics and Politics"]

    That explains a lot, they seem to have a particular hatred for the NCSE, they pre-expelled Barbara Forrest from seeing the movie as well. I guess PZ, Dawkins and other contenders can stop pretending, the creationists have found the true leader of the Darwinist conspiracy! They must’ve been pretty flippin’ upset when they found out they couldn’t send Ben Stein around for another interview because she found out that Mark Mathis was being dishonest.

    I guess they are still hurting from Barbara’s role in the Dover case, apparently their main argument for questioning that case nowadays is another Discovery institute lie (something about 92% of the decision being copied from the ACLU (lie #1) and pretending that this would be a abnormal or a bad thing (lie #2)).

    It’s actually more effective if you link to it with more than just “expelled” as your link term. After all, “Expelled” is not the only search term people use. I get tons and tons of people that were searching for “expelled reviews” for instance. And Expelled Exposed is now finally high on that results list.

    Anyone with a WordPress Blog… you can use the “Linked” plugin to set a keyword “Expelled” to the Expelled Exposed site… that way, every instance of the word “Expelled” on your blog will become a link to the GOOD site.

    Um… Don’t the links put here in the comments have some sort of google code that prevents it from indexing that link… something along the lines of rel=”nofollow”…

    So linking from the comments here doesn’t do anything to get expelledexposed any additional exposure. I think we’re supposed to be adding that link on our own web sites. Mine has had the link for a couple of weeks – for all the good it does since google probably doesn’t index my site (I do a vanity search now and again – my page doesn’t come up, yet – though I have put it in the submissions queue).

    I thought everyone realised Mark Witt was Swiftian-esque from several threads ago. He is very dry, nothing but “nudge, nudge, wink, wink”. Clever stuff if you aren’t overly reactionary or more partial to broader humor. It’s hard to parody Creobots with a straight face, but Mark seems to have his tongue planted firmly in his cheek.

    Ask him why Darwin should not have published his scientific work. Here’s the relevant quote:

    “5. What would you like to say to Darwin?

    [Ben Stein answers]“‘You are a wealthy man, you married a wealthy woman, why don’t you just live quietly out in the countryside and not torture us with your half-baked suppositions, which have caused so much misery?’”

    http://www.citizenlink.org/CLtopstories/A000007058.cfm

    Obviously he’s not going to give a good answer, but it might be interesting to see him attempt to squirm out of it.

    I have to agree, though, with the suggestions that the Expelled Exposed site could be much more welcoming to visitors – many of whom, especially if this link campaign has effect, will simply be looking for info on the movie and may know nothing of the hubbub over it.

    It’d be great to see the Expelled Exposed site lead off with a big, clear statement: “Here’s what the Expelled movie claims, here’s why it’s outrageously wrong, and here’s why you should join us in protesting it. See links below for much more info.” Short and sweet.

    I might not mind this ID movie so much were it not for glaring omissions in what is now widely believed to be true about ID. Many who have studied ID and believe it to be true, also believe that the Designer got bored toward the end. At that point, the design aspect kind of went out the window. In fact, it is a widely held belief that the Designer just kind of pulled e-coli out of her ass.

    WOW, Mr. Post 54,
    I think you need anger management classes – or a little prozac. Calm down, man. You blog like a fearful, cornered animal – an indication of your limited progress along the path of evolution, I suspect. Have a “nice” mutation for your offspring’s sake ……….

    I’ve read the blogs here with some great amazement. Most exhibit the religious zeal of an Appalachian snake handler or a Voodoo priest. What are you so afraid of? You have legitimate viewpoints to express, so why resort to tactics that are not worthy of even an emotional 13 year old girl? Some of your blogs make you sound like the totalitarian haters of the Third Reich. Again, what are you so afraid of?

    John, what are you on about? You repeat the baseles accusations of a poorly made piece of propaganda. Why? Because you can’t be bothered to absorb the facts.

    And if we’ve fallen to ridicule and name-calling, it’s because of people like you, who haven’t even bothered to learn about what they’re criticising.

    Well, dsmvwld, for some weird reason, Expelled Exposed now appears as the eighth link on the first page of a Google search on “Expelled”. Must be divine influence.

    Congratulations, nitwits. You’re taking down your own website in an impotent attempt at googlebombing. That takes a lot of talent. Wait, no. Not talent. It takes a lot of nincompoopery.

    Yeah, you’re right. When websites experience serious technical problems because some morons are mindlessly linking to them in an impotent attempt at the now-defunct practice of googlebombing, that’s a good thing!

    Oh for god’s sake – it was a joke! (And quit peeking in my window!)

    I don’t think “safe search” has any effect on websearch anyway… just image search. Therein lies the absurdity.

    Image search + “exposed” + unexplained_num_of_hits + implication_of_no_filtering = hahaha? Silly and utterly harmless quip? Perhaps a hair too subtle?

    Oh, BTW and FWIW, “expelledexposed” came up eighth in my search, too. My list is the same as yours (dsmv), except for “exposed” showing up on my list between the IMDB entry and the Science and Society entry… Dunno why it would be different. I’ve never visited the “exposed” site.

    It’s up to #5! #4 is PZ’s original post on being kicked out of the movie. I can’t take credit for the idea, but one of my friends is now using the link as her facebook status, so I switched mine too. Might get a few more hits that way!
