Finally, a movie I am looking forward to seeing. There are not enough movies for smart people to watch; however, this one looks really good. In a year where popular books discussing the silliness of religion were published by the likes of Richard Dawkins and Chris Hitchens, Ben Stein is set to release Expelled. Here is a brief clip.
The premise of Expelled is that scientific discoveries made since Darwin’s time point to an intelligent designer – or God, depending on your perspective – but scientists who question the theory of evolution are persecuted for their queries. The film asserts a large number of scientists have been denied academic degrees and new jobs, been reprimanded or fired and subjected to public humiliation for publicly questioning the validity of the theory of evolution.
