Not wholly unlike the way the Utah claims for cold fusion were presented.

  There is an interesting little irony to this whole thing. The filmmakers shunned peer review, opting instead for a popular book and film; evidence was not handled properly and the conventional scientific methods appropriate to the relevant discipline were not followed; sweeping proof claims are being asserted prior to any academic debate; experts who have been working in the field for many years and have first-hand knowledge of the evidence are dismissive of the claims; seemingly devastating contrary facts are being ignored and/or rationalized away; and some scientific-sounding stuff relating to DNA and statistics is being thrown in the mixer to support the novel claims. And we Christians are now the ones having to confront the psuedo-science! Maybe this is a blessing in disguise.
