Expelled!—coming to Canada June 6
There is a new documentary released in theatres in the US on April 18, Expelled: No intelligence allowed, starring the actor and comedian, Ben Stein. CMI highly recommends this movie, with a few caveats, and we are encouraging our supporters to go see it.
The movie highlights the extreme bias among evolutionists against anything to do with religion, God, or even an impersonal ‘designer’. The moral implications of evolutionary theory are strongly dealt with in sections on the Nazi atrocities and the euthanasia movement. The interview with Richard Dawkins in the final few minutes is worth the price of admission alone. If you know anything of Dawkins, the self-proclaimed apostle of evolutionary atheism and author of the best-selling The God Delusion, (see our review) you will be shocked to see him contradict everything he has written about evolution over the past several decades. Did Stein set him up? Did Dawkins walk into a trap? Or, has poor Richard really given into the idea that a designer is possible, even if that designer is an alien? Stein is an old earth, intelligent design advocate and not a young earth creationist. Perhaps to make the movie seem more acceptable to young earth creationists, there is no mention of the age of the earth anywhere in the film.
This is perhaps the greatest drawback is that the evolutionists interviewed all rail against the ‘creationists’ and the intelligent design advocates also deny creation. So someone unaware of the distinctions would not walk out of the movie with a greater understanding of the biblical position. However, even though there is no direct support for our cause, Expelled is still worth seeing. It is provocative enough, accurate enough, and powerful enough to earn two thumbs up from CMI.
CMI already has two articles about Expelled on our website:

We also have an article about one of the scientists featured prominently in the movie, Dr. Guillermo Gonzalez:
