P. Z. Myers Gains Fame Thanks To Creationists

Yesterday I reported on how P.Z. Myers was expelled from Expelled, a movie promoting creationism, while Richard Dawkins made it in. This story first gained a tremendous amount of coverage in the blogosphere, but now even The New York Times has picked it up. Both Myers and Dawkins appear in the film after having been interviewed under false pretenses and not being told the movie was being made to promote creationism.

The producers of the film allege that Myers was not allowed in because of being a trouble maker. Myers responds here. Of course if by trouble maker they mean he would go home and mock them mercilessly in blog posts, then he would be guilty as charged. Thanks to the producers of Expelled, Myers should have an even bigger audience in his future criticism of creationism and defense of evolutionary biology.
