Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed

I believe college students are becoming more aware that what they are being taught is more theory then science in a lot of cases. It appears Ben Stein is advocating for presenting the evidence and letting the intelligent community arrive at the appropriate conclusion. It would be a shame if we squelch good science just because it doesn't support the current paradigm of the scientific elite. I think we might have seen something like that happen in other places where freedom is non-existent. There are a lot of dictators who have tried that. Look out - society is pretty resistant. Enjoy!

I find the premise of this movie very interesting. I am amazed at the resistance to having a variety of intellectual viewpoints on a college campus. I thought that was what college campuses were all about. I am surprised at the responses in this trailer by the "Evolutionists." Aren't these the same people (aka the modern intelligencia) who told us to have open minds? I am in for quite a weekend - Friday night debate between Michael Shermer and Denish D'Souza and Saturday premiere of Expelled. That might be intellectual overload.

That debate sounds fascinating. I've read some stuff by Dinesh D'Souza but it's been awhile since I've heard his name. I've also only recently heard of Shermer.
