Kate Mulgrew Duped into Narrating Documentary

Actress Kate Mulgrew said on Tuesday in a statement on her Facebook page that she does not stand behind her latest project, a geocentric documentary called The Principle, and that she was “misinformed” about it when she agreed to narrate the film.

Mulgrew, known for her leading role as Capt. Kathryn Janeway in Star Trek: Voyager, posted an explanation on her Facebook page Tuesday, dissociating herself from the controversial documentary that promotes the long debunked theory that the sun revolves around the Earth.

A trailer for The Principle, directed by Katheryne Thomas, begins with a voiceover from Mulgrew: “Everything we think we know about our universe is wrong.”

Robert Sungenis, a Catholic apologist who runs a blog called Galileo Was Wrong, produced the documentary.

Mulgrew, who currently stars as Red in the hit Netflix series Orange is the New Black, said in her statement that she does not ascribe to Sungenis’ theories or geocentrism, and that she would not have participated in the project had she known he was involved.

Prominent scientist Laurence Krauss also appears in the documentary and claimed in a Twitter post on Tuesday that he was misrepresented in the film.

 

Krauss wrote in an article for Slate on Tuesday that “The notion that anyone in the 21st century could take seriously the notion that the sun orbits the Earth, or that the Earth is the centre of the universe, is almost unbelievable.”

He also explained that he was reluctant to sue the filmmakers because “it would elevate the profile of something that shouldn’t even rise to the level of popular discussion.”

    Once again creationists reveal themselves for the bottom-feeding scavengers that they are. No act is so sleazy that they won’t use it to promote their ignorant agenda. An even worse example of this was “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed,” where the oily Ben Stein misrepresented scientists as accomplished as Charles Darwin and Richard Dawkins. Fortunately the backers of this pathetic piece of propaganda lost a large amount of money, and let’s hope the same fate awaits the ironically-named “The Principle.”
