Suspended: No Astrology Allowed

How dare they fire these professors for teaching Astrology in an Astronomy class!?

ComedyJesus tells us their stories in this Expelled parody:

Oh, Professor Cleo, they never should’ve gotten rid of you…

My favorite quotation:

“Astronomy is like AIDS to the American education system. It’s a disgrace and there is no cure.”

Immediately followed by:

“Does Astronomy kill people? You know what, that’s for you to decide… But yes.”

Up yours, Phil Plait :)

    Am I angry? No–well, I’m a cancer so I’m naturally crabby…

    I enjoyed that. Thanks, Hemant.

    Brilliant! I’m glad that I know now that Newton gave out razor-blade apples on Halloween.

    I’m still amazed and disappointed at how stupid and ignorant Ben Stein is. I loved his little game show with Jimmy Kimmel; and I can’t comprehend how someone who possesses that much knowledge can be that ignorant. As a kid playing Dungeons and Dragons, I never really understood the difference between the Intelligence and Wisdom character abilities; Ben Stein would’ve served as the perfect example.

    This was excellent satire. I enjoyed it. I’m sending it to my best friend who runs the telescope at the observatory where much of it was filmed. He’ll crack up.

    I got a good laugh out of this. Damn astronomers with their facts and evidence!

    @Brian

    You have brought great insight, humor, Ben Stein bashing, atheism, and Dungeons & Dragons together in one place.

    Bravo. =)

    I cannot wait to get home and watch this! My brother will love it.

    Brilliant. Of course, there will be two responses to this from creationists – “It’s not the same thing”, and “That’s very funny – but you’re still wrong.” Something about the way the conservative evangelical mind works; they generally don’t seem to be able to process irony.

    Maybe you can have either the GOD gene or the IRONY gene turned on, but not both turned on at the same time. ;) But I’m Aquarius, so I’ll believe anything. :)

    That is freaking fantastic.
