No Intelligence Allowed

Last night, I finally got around to watching Ben Stein's documentary EXPELLED: No Intelligence Allowed. Stein goes on a fact finding journey around the world interviewing scientists. He is trying to figure out why those who consider Intelligent Design worthy of study are being shut out of academia. It is quite interesting to say the least.

Stein, a scholar in his own right, stares Darwinism in the face and holds it to the light. Most of all, he is questioning why Intelligence Design is not even allowed to be considered with being "black listed" by the scientific community. Stein is mainly calling for the freedom to ask questions and explore.

Has anyone else seen this movie?

Do you think Intelligent Design is given a fair chance in the scientific community?

Hey, Kevin

I took my college Grow Group to the movie when it first came out. I thought it was asking really fair quesitons, and that people who are supposedly open to "wherever the evidence leads" were getting very squeamish.

So much for open mindedness...

It was very interesting to see how the scientists squirmed when put to the test.

I also found it interesting how he showed that Nazi Germany was based out of Darwinism. End then how Eugenics was based in Darwinism and how the founder of Planned Parenthood was huge into Eugenics.

It had a lot of good info and brought up a lot of valid questions.

It is out on DVD now so I just got it at the redbox. Do you have redbox out there? I don't even know. You should be able to find it wherever DVD's are rented or sold.
