A few days ago I linked to the video for Beware the Believers, thinking it could possibly be a viral video for Expelled. Our Newsflash of the day… it is. Michael Edmondson, owner of Float On Films, created Beware the Believers to promote expelled.

I created (and danced) the “Richard Dawkins: Beware The Believers” viral ad for “Expelled : No Intelligence Allowed” found here:

The viral ad received 200, 000 views on the web during the three weeks prior to the (Expelled) release. I also have a visual effects credit for the film Expelled.

I love this video, and if it’s propaganda for Expelled (as many have speculated over a period of many months), it’s no doubt a hundred times better than Expelled could have ever been.

The elite here is comprised of: Richard Dawkins, Eugenie Scott, Daniel Dennett, Charles Darwin, PZ Myers, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens.

My personal favorite character is Sam Harris, I think the grillz are funny. But Dennett is funny in anything like this, because he looks like Santa but most religious would tell you he embodies Satan instead. Also, when he comes out of nowhere and says “YEAH!”, I laughed hard. Of course, that particular “YEAH!” is seemingly taken from the Anthrax song I’m The Man. I could be wrong, though.

What a day!

At 8 PM everything resets and a new day begins on WordPress dot com. But all is most certainly not lost! For instance, there’s a cache forever saved on the WordPress site that records all of the number ones, the number one blog posts, number one blogs, etc. for certain days.

Today, I happen to be number one in one category. On the Blogs of the Day page, you’ll see that I’m in the number one spot.

That’s right. Thanks to one PZ Myers I racked in the top spot on WordPress dot com for yesterday in a mere nine hours. Want to know the final number of hits? Do you? Huh? I received 12,867 unique hits over a nine hour period. For comparison, my four month total (March – July) was only abou 3,500. That means I got over three times my total blogging traffic from four months of work in just nine hours. Quite incredible!

I owe it all, yet again, to my biology friendly hero PZ Myers, who gave me this epic shoutout. You can see his worship of me at this location.

lol. Worship.

Also, at the end of the day I was nudged out of the number two spot in growing blogs to finish in the number three spot. As for overall blogs, I finished in 21st place for the day.

More than being impressed with anything else, I found two things intriguing: the fact that PZ did notice me (he must get plenty of email like mine!) and the fact that he has so much traffic.

Thanks everyone for making this a very special day. I feel like a band that has just had a number one single and a number three album debut on the billboard 200! OK, lame comparison, but it feels good. The best thing is knowing that my hero did notice me ❤

I have tried for months – MONTHS – to get my publicly pronounced idol, PZ Myers, to, if nothing else, notice that I exist!

I’ve mentioned him in countless blog entries, spammed his blog with my links (OK, so one per post isn’t quite spamming, but it should be enough), defended him in my own awesome ways (not that he needs it, he can certainly handle himself), and show him a tremendous amount of respect regularly.

He’s like in the Ivy League of bloggers, along with fellow scientist Phil Plait, and you’ve got to do something uber cool kick ass as hell to get him to notice you exist. For instance, an associate of mine, one Splendid Elles got his attention with an article on her local museum that creationists had invaded. I, on the other hand, am trying to get a date with the creation museum!

But I’m not about to write up something gigantic with custom pictures for a measly little twenty hits a day. I’m also not going to pay to get in that hack job of a “museum” for nothing. I’m happy with being able to slam the creationists, but that’s not enough for you, Myers, is it?

I’m at the end of my ideas. If I don’t get some attention soon from the number one blogger I know, I’m going to assplode! Or worse! I may even end up visiting the creation museum and doing some gigantic write up on every factual error while at the same time remaining family friendly enough to be able to market to everyone and not just the extreme atheist crowd who don’t mind cursing to hell and back.

Actually, I do plan on making it family friendly to show my family, but yeah.

To sum this up: read the title. Thanks.

Update: My begging paid off. Thanks for the notice, PZ! I feel special now. kthx.

Update 2: I changed the time zone so the comments got a bit screwed up. Sorry. If you comment, look for it near the top instead of at the bottom. Time zone is EDT, so yeah.

Bill Donohue continues on his anti-science, anti-PZ tirade with this new statement from the Catholic League. Of course, PZ, being awesome as he is, has already noted their response and torn it to shreds, here.

But me being me, I’m not done yet. I can’t simply give this one over to the overly rational and not near insane enough Myers, can I? Of course not!

First they start off with a title like this:

HYSTERIA MARKS MYERS AND HIS ILK

What? One PZ Myers has received threats against his person for a cracker. Do you not get it? There is no hysteria when someone is threatened over a goddamn cracker. Especially when it’s not just their property, but their very being! And over a cracker!

Not only that, you assbackwards motherfuckers are trying to take his job… Over the same goddamn crackers. If that’s fucking hysteria, you have every right to call us hysterical, but it sounds to me like the Catholic League is the hysterical bunch, emphasis on Bill Donohue.

He continues…

Myers went on Houston radio station KPFT last night saying that Bill Donohue has ‘declared a fatwa’ against him. He should know better—I don’t need others to do the fighting for me. I’m quite good at it myself.  But he’d better be careful what he says, because if I get any death threats, it won’t be hard to connect the dots.

Bill Donohue, you douche, if you could do the fighting yourself there would be no need to make a public statement for a group of people… and oh yeah, he’s already gotten death threats. But he’s not yet suing you or the Dumbfuck League!

Myers, who claims expertise in studying zebrafish, has quite a following among the King Kong Theory of Creation gang. Indeed, we’ve been inundated with hate mail from all over the world, and it all stems from those whose alleged god is reason.

King Kong? OH, HAHA, I GET IT! AN EVOLUTION REFERENCE! Donohue, you funny, funny man, you!

There is no god, but reasoning is key in getting people to hate foolish men like you who are truly disgusting, lying, fat pigs. You threaten PZ’s job, people threaten him, then you call us the hysterical bunch despite our concern over someone’s hard earned job and very life. That’s the ultimate in douchebaggery. You win at it, Donohue.

As a result of the hysteria that Myers’ ilk have promoted, at least one public official is taking it seriously. Thomas E. Foley is chairman of Virginia’s First Congressional District Republican Committee, a delegate to the Republican National Convention and one of two Republican at large nominees for Virginia’s Electoral College. His concern is for the safety of Catholics attending this year’s Republican National Convention in Minneapolis, Myers’ backyard. Accordingly, Foley has asked the top GOP brass to provide additional security while in the Twin Cities so that Catholics can worship without fear of violence. Given the vitriol we have experienced for simply exercising our First Amendment right to freedom of speech, we support Foley’s request.

…and the First Amendment right to freedom of speech doesn’t go for PZ Myers and his supposed “ilk”, too? Why not? Is it your god given right as a Catholic to be able to speak but no one else? In fact, why would you ever think we would be capable of being violent? PZ has gotten death threats from your ilk, and you only assume you’ll be getting some from ours, which you undeniably will sooner or later.

We already know that Myers lost one round: the university has removed the link to his blog from his faculty page. He should be prepared to lose a few more rounds. By the way, Myers says he is delighted to have finally garnered my attention. Too bad I can’t say the same—I never heard of the guy until yesterday.

Where were his First Amendment rights when his blog link was removed… for abusing a goddamn cracker?

If anything, this whole debacle highlights the hateful attitude, the hateful ethos, and just how generally hateful religion can be. Bill Donohue and the Catholic League are hypocrites on the top level, the ones who beg for free speech when it’s in their favour but attack the supporters of free speech, sometimes with physical violence, when it’s not in their favour.

You, Bill Donohue, are an assclown and don’t deserve the freedom of speech which you yourself can’t respect enough to give to PZ.

Everyone had said Expelled was THE film. The creationists said this would defeat “Darwinism” and the Disco Tute banked on it. What they didn’t bet on was the legions of smart people who would step up to the plate to say it was nonsense. I even know creationists who believe what the film has done is just plain stupid. A friend of mine, who strongly believes in God and creationism, has said that the film itself was despicable, although he’s admitted to being a fan of Ben Stein, and has called him… Erm… Smart. Not my choice of words, but I can respect that.

I hate to say it, but it is.. honestly… over.

As said before, scientist and major blog hero PZ Myers, has had one very bad time with the dramamentuary (it’s a fusion of drama and documentary where drama is more prominent and actual documentary content is null).

Before reading what comes next, check Part II to get up to speed on the whole issue — and how PZ Myers has been boned by the producers for absolutely nothing. Part III is also recommended, but not required, as this is more about their recent exploits as opposed to the beginning.

(Continue to the next page at your own discretion because this may just be more of a buzzkill for the Expelled team than any of the other things that I’ve posted.)
