I swear these people get sillier every day

From the NYT:

On the conservative Web site WorldNetDaily.com, an opponent of abortion wrote that the movie "verified the beauty of life and the rightness of protecting it."

At a conference for young Republicans, the editor of National Review urged participants to see the movie because it promoted monogamy. A widely circulated Christian magazine said it made "a strong case for intelligent design."

The movie is "March of the Penguins," and of all the reactions it has evoked, perhaps the most surprising is its appeal to conservatives.

...

The movie goes on to follow the penguins as they trek back and forth over 70 miles of ice to their breeding ground and huddle together to protect their eggs in temperatures that average 70 degrees below zero Fahrenheit.

To Andrew Coffin, writing in the widely circulated Christian publication World Magazine, that is a winning argument for the theory that life is too complex to have arisen through random selection.

I guess these guys are lucky that they didn't stumble into a nature film about infanticide in lions or the well documented examples of homosexual behavior in the marine mammal world. And suffice it to say that a documentary about those randy little buggers the Bonobo chimps would have sent them running from the theater in search of a holy water eye-wash sink. Stephen Jay Gould once said "We never should have sought either solace or moral instruction in Nature." I don't doubt that he may also have said "Never get your film criticism from morons."
