expelledPop quiz! What’s responsible for atheism, abortion, euthanasia, and the Holocaust? If you answered anything but evolution, I’m incredibly relieved. If evolution did in fact pop into your head, you’ll probably be first in line for Ben Stein’s new documentary: Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed

Using the same tactics as Big Tobacco and Global Warming skeptics, the film attempts to generate a smidgen of doubt about evolution. Stein follows the script that creationism is being dismissed from schools because of academic “prejudice” and attempts to dress up the idea that the earth is only 6,000-10,000 years old by inviting anti-evolution “think tank” cranks and under-credentialed academics to the table. From the article,

Expelled relies on the viewer’s inability or unwillingness to wrestle with a complex corner of science, double-talking its way toward a “must be a miracle” solution to anything that science may not claim to have an answer for. Dismiss that for having no basis in fact, and you’re infringing on “academic freedom.”

That’s not it at all, Ben. And really, when academia, the courts, the opinions of the educated have all weighed in on this subject on that “other side,” who’s the real monkey in this ‘debate’?”

Oh, snap! No wonder Ferris Bueller cut school that day. He was probably about to get an earful on cavemen and dinosaurs living together in perfect harmony. For more on the silliness of this film check out the counter-website, Expelled Exposed.
