Go see Expelled!

Check out this website It is a new documentary from the genius Ben Stein (if you don't know who he is, remember Ferris Bueller's Day Off? He is Ferris's teacher..."Bueller, Bueller, Bueller.")
Here are some quotes about the movie:
"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..As the movie masterfully illustrates, we live in a cultural climate where secular elitists in academia, the media and the courts chew up and spit out anyone who dares to question the gospel according to Charles Darwin. They're absolutely terrified to follow the scientific evidence wherever it may lead."
- From Matt Barber at
""Expelled" calls attention to the plight of highly credentialed scholars who have been forced out of prestigious academic positions because they proposed Intelligent Design as a possible alternative to Charles Darwin's 150-year-old theories about the origins of life .
Instead of entertaining a debate on the merits of competing theories, the scientific establishment has moved to suppress the ID movement in a "systematic and ruthless" way at odds with America's founding principles, the film asserts."
- From Kevin Mooney and Josiah Ryan at

The movie is opening up in 1000 theatres nationwide Friday night. Do yourself a favor and GO SEE IT! I will be at my local theatre (which is showing it), see if it is opening at yours at the movie website.
Check out the trailers and interviews here.
