I think I have earned the right to make fun of Ayn Rand's fiction. Not only have I read Atlas Shrugged, but also The Fountainhead, We the Living, and Anthem. That last one was like reading a poor man's version of Brave New World.
The only thing I learned from reading those novels was that Ayn Rand must have grown up in Lineland (1)
But Keith Lockitch from the Ayn Rand institute has released a statement regarding his thoughts on the movie Expelled. The only reason I bring it up is because it has a very succinct one-liner that summarizes the actions of those who support intelligent design extremely well.
Intelligent design advocates will do anything to advance their views--except science.
Now if only I could get my hands on the original draft of Atlas Shrugged in which Rand actually named every single character Mary Sue (2).
(1) Because all of her characters were uni-dimensional. There, I'm done making fun.
(2) Okay, now I'm really done.
