A while back some creationist group did a video that showed one of their members in front of a lab, giving an air of scientific authority to their “research.” (Of course, IDers’ and other creationists’ “research” usually consists of finding pseudo-problems with evolution; they almost never do actual hands-on work in the lab or field.) At any rate, somebody found out that the lab was actually “green-screened,” that is, it was not really the place where the creationist was interviewed, but was simply faked as a background by projecting it onto a screen behind the speaker. (I can’t recall the post I did about that, or the source, but I trust some reader will come through.)
A few days ago I posted about the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) in Dallas, for the Dallas Morning News had done a piece on it. The piece included an uncritical video about the ICR, a video extracted and sent by alert reader and militant anti-creationist Doc Bill (aka the staff of Kink the Cat). Here’s the link to the video, which is short. Pay attention to the interview with ICR’s “Research Director” Jason Lisle, and especially to his appearance in front of a “white board” at about 1:15.
Doc noticed something funny about that white board, and tried to take a screenshot. But every time he stopped the video, it went black. Finally, he managed to take a screenshot of the white board on the fly, and here it is behind Lisle:
