I just watched Ben Stein’s 2008 documentary Expelled:No Intellegence Allowed which is all about how respected scientists who make any mention of Intelligent Design are being black-balled and more-or-less “expelled” from the scientific community.
American Professors have been denied tenure, had research grants revoked and even been fired simply for doing scientific research that supports Intelligent Design or even mentioning it in their college classroom.
The documentary was really well done and eye opening to just how entrenched darwinian thinking is within the American scientific community and just how far many are willing to go in order to silence opposing views. Ben Stein really tackled the heart of this issue and met with some of the most prominent spokespeople on both sides of the Darwinian Evolution-Intelligent Design debate, including Richard Dawkins.
I think every thinking American should take the time to watch this documentary. I have posted a preview trailer below if you are interested.
My wife and I rented it for 99 cents at our local red box which is in the entry way of Super WalMart. If you are not familiar with red box, it is basically a vending machine that vends movies. (GREAT concept!)
If you have never heard of this amazing invention, known as the red box, and wonder if there is one near you, visit the red box website and type in your zip code.
