Expelled: Joseph Farah's Review

I simply can't wait to get to a theatre April 18th.

Here's another review of the documentary:

Stein doesn't just ask the obvious questions of the scientists who are dogmatic about evolution. He probes. He digs. He pierces. He penetrates. He is relentless.

The responses are amazing – even if you think you know what to expect.

It turns out some of the most hardened, doctrinaire anti-design zealots in the scientific establishment – people like Richard Dawkins, author of "The God Delusion" and, coincidentally, the de facto leader of the worldwide atheist movement – aren't really opposed to the notion of design at all. They just can't accept God as the designer.

You will hear some of the world's most celebrated evolutionists admit design is possible – just not by the hand of God.

They will attribute the possibility of design to visitors from other planets and even to crystals. The two things they cannot tolerate are consideration of God's role and any of their colleagues deviating from their own ideas about origins.

It's not so much the architects of evolution are opposed to religion. It's that they have formed their own religion – absent the God of Christianity and Judaism.

As Ben Stein explains it: "Big Science in this area of biology has lost its way. Scientists are supposed to be allowed to follow the evidence wherever it may lead, no matter what the implications are. Freedom of inquiry has been greatly compromised, and this is not only anti-American, it's anti-science. It's anti-the whole concept of learning."

You need to be on the lookout for "Expelled." It will get a healthy rollout in theaters beginning April 18. But you don't want to miss it. This is a movie you will want to see more than once. This is a movie for the whole family. This is a movie to tell your friends about.

It won't end the debate about evolution. But it may give us a chance to revive the debate.

Again, DON'T miss this flick. If you're a blogger, get the word out. People need to be aware of what is going on in academia today in regard to the suppression of academic freedom.
