I've been seeing the Google-generated ad on this site for several days now, and finally decided to learn more about Ben Stein's new film "Expelled." Frankly, it looks compelling and I hope to see it soon. This is a good overview of the film and it's potential impact – academic freedom goes both ways. Are science professors who question Darwin losing their jobs? (Film Trailer attached)

Darwin's Kool-Aid (Canadian Free Press)

By Matt Barber Tuesday, April 8, 2008

There's a shakeup in the cult of neo-Darwinist pseudo-science, and that endearing, monotone high school teacher of "Ferris Bueller" fame is doing the shaking.
With his new feature documentary, "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" (opening in theaters April 18), Ben Stein – actor, economist, presidential speechwriter and all around really smart guy – squares off with some of the world's most prominent anti-theist elites as he gets to the heart of the question, "Who are we, and how did we get here?"

This is not your father's documentary. "Expelled" rocks the house both literally and figuratively. It's gripping, music-packed, comically wry and always entertaining. But its entertainment value is yet surpassed by its educational merit. Throughout the film, Stein boldly shines a light of honest inquiry, revealing time and again that Evolution's Emperor has no clothes. In his trademark deadpan fashion, Stein skillfully debunks the dogmatic neo-Darwinist programming we've all had relentlessly rammed down our throats ever since "Big Science" went bananas over that cute little Scopes Monkey.

    I have also heard about this movie. I believe it is in regards to the fact that educators that try to introduce the theory of religion as well as Darwin are being fired or "Expelled". It also looked very interesting to me. I do like Ben Stein – I think he is a very funny, highly intelligent man.

    I did not hear anything about this movie coming out. It looked to be interesting. I donít understand why Darwinism and Creationism have to be polar opposites? Isnít possible God designed Evolution?
