Southern Stupidity

The New York Times is reporting [Free Login Required] on the passing on science films by Imax theatres in the Southern US due to references they make to evolutionary theory. Why? They might offend some of stupid southern religious bupkuses. Films that don't make the cut include Volcanoes, Cosmic Voyage and Galápagos. The most alarming part of this news is that the chances of this happening at commercial theatres is slim -- it's happening mostly at public institutions, such as museums and science centres.
