What do Ben Stein and Intelligent Design (ID) have in common? More than a little bit, apparently. Ben’s newest movie to be released later this month is titled, “Expelled. No Intelligence Allowed.” And while I haven’t seen it, I’ve read a good number of reviews from mostly Intelligent Design proponents who generally all agree on it’s merits as a fine documentary.
The premise is simple. Various faculty at various universities or other academic institutions were allegedly forced from their positions after attempting to or actually putting forth a positive opinion on the concept of intelligent design. The movie tries to show an apparent disregard for intellectual freedom and a staunch close-mindedness perpetrated by the intelligentsia.
In my mind, this sounds like fairly interesting stuff.
