I saw Ben Stein and spoke with him briefly when he was here in
Washington promoting his movie. A typical no-brain movie by a no-brain
personality. It is pure ID propaganda with a characteristically
Hollywood style lack of research.

Have any of you seen anything about this yet? (movie trailer for
EXPELLED: No Intelligence Allowed)


Unfortunately it seems to me it will be another of those popular
expressions of anti-establishment rhetoric that will in the end be more
hurtful than helpful to the cause of rational Christianity. For
instance, perpetuating the warfare model of Darwin vs. Christianity,
when Darwin himself allowed for the Creator to be part of the
evolutionary history of species; or promoting the view that Christian
scientists are being universally persecuted in science, when what is
often happening is their religious (non-scientific, or anti-scientific)
positions are what's being rejected by science and scientists.


Even worse, the movie is produced by Premise, but it seems that several
of the scientists interviewed for it were interviewed on a "false
premise", not knowing what was the intent of the film. This can't be
good for the image of Christianity, if it really was a tactic used to
quote-mine for the film.
