About this item
In a light-hearted take in the culture wars, Flock Of Dodos tweaks egos and pokes fun at both sides in the evolution vs. intelligent design debate. Evolutionary biologist and filmmaker Dr. Randy Olson rides along with jargon-impaired scientists and jargon-rebranding intelligent designers as they engage in the comic theatrics that erupt wherever science and religion clash over the origins of life. From the shadowy, well-funded headquarters of the pro-intelligent design Discovery Institute in Seattle to the rarefied talk of Olson's science buddies around a late-night poker table, Flock Of Dodos leads a thoughtfully critical ear to the wonderful personalities and passions driving the Darwin wars. By explaining the quirks of evolution with colorful visual aides while respectfully listening o people of faith, Flock Of Dodos is intelligently designed for popular appeal" (Variety). And if you find it difficult to determine which side of the issue is the bigger flock of dodos, Olson offers up his 83-year-old mother, Muffy Moose, as the ultimate head dodo who provides the Rodney King perspective of "can't we all just along?" This enlightened, fun film is a must-see for anyone who cares about the issues of our time.
