Darwin's Dilemma

There is a preview of the new Illustra Media film, "Darwin's Dilemma," which addresses the Cambrian explosion. I cannot wait to see this film. Illustra's previous work--"Unlocking the Mystery of Life" and "Privileged Planet"--were superb: strong interviews with articulate experts, pleasing music, excellent narration, and state of the art computer graphics used for educational ends. It does not get any better than this.

On a scale from 1-10, how would you rank "Expelled"? I have yet to see it.

It is not good to reduce qualitative judgments to qualitative measures.

"Expelled" points out a real problem (discrimination against ID), but doesn't do much to actually defend ID. For that, in DVD form, see "Unlocking the Mystery of Life" and "The Privileged Planet."

I think you mean "quantitative" measures !

Right - don't reduce qualitative to quantitative.
