Shame. I had the pleasure of participating in two of his blog-posts re evolution in the latter part of 2009. Staunch supporter of science, though he was ever courteous to the creationists posting there nonetheless. Beyond the movie-critic persona he was known for in the US, to me he came across as pretty thoughtful and articulate. I always thought I'd get a chance to go back there again.

"Roger Ebert, Defender of Evolution?" What else would you expect from a shill that made a living declaring very shitty movies to be worth watching? Let's face it. Roger Ebert lived as a prostitute for the film industry.

Thanks Shube for once again confirming that you're nothing more than a whiny little jerkoff.

Most evolutionists are just worshipers of social/state power. It takes courage to go against popular opinion.

You're just jealous because he made something of himself while you're still a pile of feces.

It takes more than that. Moral courage is also required.

Roger Ebert is a rotting corpse with an inglorious legacy. I sure wouldn’t want to be him in the final judgment. But maybe you would.

Most intellectuals are motivated by the desire to compel the public to sing hosannas to their leaders, says Noam Chomsky. That man is a genius. http://everythingimportant.org

Your jealousy is so transparent we can see the outline of your rotten little soul through a whole mile of it.

Your claim to be able to look into my soul and to judge my inner thoughts is just plain ludicrous.

God never leads His children otherwise than they would choose to be led, if they could see the end from the beginning, and discern the glory of the purpose which they are fulfilling as co-workers with Him. Not Enoch, who was translated to heaven, not Elijah, who ascended in a chariot of fire, was greater or more honored than John the Baptist, who perished alone in the dungeon. "Unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on Him, but also to suffer for His sake." Philippians 1:29. And of all the gifts that Heaven can bestow upon men, fellowship with Christ in His sufferings is the most weighty trust and the highest honor.– The Desire of Ages, p. 224.

No, it just takes brains. Moral courage is just shorthand for "it's evil because I think it's icky!"
