Ben Stein's movie, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, has been in theaters for about two weeks. For those still unaware, the producers of the movie essentially posit that those within the halls of academia not only prevent the inclusion of Intelligent Design proponents, but will actively seek, and have sought, to destroy the careers of those who dare question natural process evolutionary theory.
So, how do some of the most vociferous proponents of natural process evolutionary theory approach Ben Stein's efforts? Well, if you visit The Thumb, you will find a total of 61 posts (as of this writing) tagged under the category of "Expelled".* Skim through the posts and you'll find them laced with the notions that the producers of Expelled are liars, dishonest, disingenuous, etc.
Hear. Speak. See.
Okay, so let's ignore the obvious display of paranoia in which they overreact to an idea which they consider equivalent to that of believing in a flat-earth. Instead, let's ask: Why are they so intent on convincing you to NOT see the movie? What are they so afraid of?
Tell you what, why not do the typical American thing? When some group - any group - is so intent on getting you to not do something, then how about you go out AND DO IT?
Yeah, go see the movie.
