Editorial Reviews

Big science has expelled smart new ideas from the classroom ... What they forgot is that every generation has its Rebel! That rebel, Ben Stein (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) travels the world on his quest, and learns an awe-inspiring truth … that educators and scientists are being ridiculed, denied tenure and even fired – for the crime of merely believing that there might be evidence of design in nature, and that perhaps life is not just the result of accidental, random chance. To which Ben Says: Enough! And then gets busy. NOBODY messes with Ben.

The truth is out: REAL SCIENTISTS are being "expelled," removed, and even denied tenor because of their belief in an intelligent cause behind life.
Michael Burgess
Supposedly, no one knows how this happened, and several scientists are quoted as speculating "it grew on crystals" or "extraterrestrials seeded the Earth."
Surrounded
What that truth was, I won't really get into, because knowing the truth means you never have to, um, not....know....the.....truth, or something like that.

Now that the DVD is out, how does it differ from the film version? Even though Vivendi/ Premise won the lawsuit that Yoko Ono filed against the film for using ten seconds of John Lennon's "Imagine", the reference has been cut out of the video. I greatly respected Yoko as a performance artist and had the original records of Two Virgins and Plastic Ono Band. How very sad if a great modern artist's only interest now is gathering greenbacks. More on this in Steve Turner's excellent and revealing The Gospel According to the Beatles, which is full of absolutely unknown Beatlemania.

If anyone actually watched Expelled, they'd see that it's not "thinly disguised creationism" but rather about the freedom to challenge entrenched views. Certain sectors are always taking the church to task for supposedly limiting Galileo's freedom of inquiry and speech (in a vastly distorted account of what actually happened). Hello! Exactly the same thing is happening now, although they seem rather more silent when the shoe is on the other foot. Ben Stein is merely trying to restore the freedoms of speech and inquiry guaranteed in the US constitution to the realm of academia and the hugely controlled "Big Science" of public science foundations and those funded by philanthropic grants, including the Smithsonian Institute, National academy of Science, and the National Science Foundation.

After seeing Expelled in a theater, I wrote a long review of it elsewhere on the web. Now I see it's sparked a rather lively debate among reviewers. Actually, among those who, by their own admission, haven't seen it. One reviewer asks why people are voting against his review (which is against the film).

Format: DVD
The Ninth Commandment certainly wasn't held in high esteem by the filmmakers (although they might attempt to weasel out of it by arguing that it only applies to witnesses held under oath in court). A thorough refutation would take several hundred pages and several years of biological education. As I specialised in business management and marketing in college, I will address the most egregious errors in the movie.

The lies and misrepresentations about what actually happened to the academics mentioned and interviewed in this "documentary" are already well-documented by Expelled Exposed, so I will not address them here. Suffice it to say that creationism isn't science and has no basis in academic journals until they can bring forth the evidence. So far, they have yet to do so.

The complexity of the cell - this is a red herring, and has nothing to do with evolution. It is more of an attack on abiogenesis (which we now know is possible). It certainly wasn't as simple as "lighting striking a mud puddle." The original cells that came into existence from self-replicating molecules and protobionts would have been much simpler than cells that comprise living beings that are the result of billions of years of evolution. Moving on.

"Science leads you to killing people." Get real, Ben Stein. Science is a process for learning about the world. It has produced innumerable benefits for humanity (and non-human animals as well).

The movie Expelled makes it very clear that there is a conspiracy, within the scientific community, to silence freedom of thought. For established scientists to even mention Intelligent Design as a possible explanation for life is to risk losing one's status and becoming Expelled from the mainstream scientific community. Something is going on and you brainwashed atheists just blindly believe whatever science says is true like hopelessly dumb experimental monkey-sheep!

So, let me get this straight: Darwin writes a controversial book called The Origin of Species when he doesn't have so much as a clue how any species originated!!! Darwin's THEORY involves speculation about what happened AFTER species originated, yet he called the book The Origin of Species. HELLO!!! DOES ANYONE SEE SOMETHING STRANGE HERE??

Okay, living cells are proving themselves to be more incredibly complex than simple-minded Darwin EVER DREAMED was possible. It is said by science that DNA is encoded with information. Well, then. Where is the repeatable, observable, scientific experimental evidence that INFORMATION can come from a source with no intelligence whatsoever? Unless I am mistaken IT IS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND!!!

However, science wants everyone to believe ON BLIND FAITH ALONE that the information encoded in DNA came from a source with no intelligence whatsoever.

AND THE GULLIBLE JUST BLINDLY BELIEVE IT!!!!

I wholeheartedly recommend this movie. I saw it because several people I know who always claim to be open minded and thoughtful totally bashed it.

I had to see it then... Seeing all these reviews which appear to be nothing but second grader rants totally supports my theory that whenever anyone does anything of consequence the "authorities" start acting like children having a tantrum or run away and cover their eyes, ears and mouth.

Just for doing the movie in this hostile environment it gets five stars from me.

If for no other reason you should watch this movie for the interview with the author of "The Blind Watchmaker."

Mr. Stein simply asks questions and the answers are precious, sad, but precious.

I loved the interview because it exemplifies the argument Stein is making through the whole movie. Stein does not hit you over the head with it either--he lets you see it for yourself.

The movie presents the fundamental argument: That Scientists should be open to follow the evidence where ever it leads however uncomfortable. He also presents a powerful information concerning what can happen to individual human rights when those in power pick up on a novel idea and run with it...

Stein shows, throughout the movie, science is impotent when scientists try to force a belief system paradigm into their thinking. The paradigm or "wall" of interest is that there is no place for religion in science therefore there can be no creator and no means to understand the origins of life other than through random happenstance (but apparently its OK to consider "little green men.")

Clarified by this movie and the rantings (I mean reviews), people don't like to question what their teachers and TV told them ad nausea all their lives.

Expelled
S. Best,

Go to expelledexposed.com if you want to see just how misleading the DVD is. It will take courage on your part to do this. Most would rather accept a lie that they think supports their position.

From Darwin to Hitler. From Hitler to Behe.
Mr. Beazley:

I think the most important point to make is this: Nazi Germany's eugenics, like all eugenics plans, was an artificial selection program, determined by humans. This is completely different from natural selection. (Not survival of the fittest; but rather survival of those who are... Read More

Here are some things that don't actually constitute a coherent argument:
1) dismissing any criticism of this film as a "rant," whatever that means;
2) raising the red flag of "academic freedom" whenever schools and academic journals prove unreceptive to some fringe group's pet... Read More

Win Ben Stein's Mind - A review by Roger Ebert
Ebert's deconstruction of this alleged "documentary" is one of the best of very many such pieces. Thanks for posting the link, Eric.

the intelligent designer is...
And yet so-called "scientists" continue to reject any explanation of the origin of life that involves the FSM. Until the bigotry stops, and the FSM is allowed into the biology classrooms of America -- and, what the hell, the chemistry and physics classrooms, too -- we must not rest.
