I think we cannot ignore the no-secret of that being crap. I can't force myself to see this too after the 2 versions of "What The (Bleep) Do We Know!?". (but is a lot better to know what kind of narrators they call from the start, as the subtitles appear on they first phrase)

(Sorry if typo errors appears, my native language is portuguese) I am sorry for this man, I have relatives that suffer from autism, and this guy serios don't have a clue about what is the cause of their condition. I can think about many causes of the growth of autism, not only in US, but over the world. - We know more now about this condition, and recognize in early stages, with many levels been reported. - The stereotypes of autistics are falling down and people are more friendly to assuming their child has autism, and so more are declared as so. - If the kid suffer from a lower kind of autism, the chances that he(or she) live a normal life are big. So there are second generations, and maybe, if autism have a strong genetic cause, other autistics may be born. This is not a statement, just me playing mind gueses, but I think that my will hurt much less feelings.

A good vague guess. Like always the PETWHAC (Richard Dawkins anachronism for Population of Events That Would Have Appeared Coincidental) hits. Like Skeptico’s psychic predictions for 2007, James describes obvious predictions, vague ones, and a few off the wall. (and I don't see many of so-called obvious hit...)
