Nope ! Do not adjust the screen! That’s the man alright! “Bueller, Bueller, Bueller!” Yes, that man—Mr. Ben Stein, actor (famous for Farris Bueller’s Day Off), lawyer, Nixon advisor and a man who is the jack of all trades so to speak! This coming February 2008, he’s coming out with a documentary called Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed in which he feels that scientists have made the theory of evolution into dogma. In WorldNetDaily it states, “Stein uncovers a long line of biologists, astronomers, chemists and philosophers who have had their reputations destroyed and their careers ruined by a scientific establishment that allows absolutely no dissent from Charles Darwin’s theory of random mutation and natural selection.”
“Big Science in this area of biology has lost its way,” says Stein. “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.”
As “Expelled’s” official website asks: “What freedom-loving student wouldn’t be outraged to discover that his high school science teacher is teaching a theory as indisputable fact, and that university professors unmercifully crush any fellow scientists who dare question the prevailing system of belief? This isn’t the latest Hollywood comedy; it’s a disturbing new documentary that will shock anyone who thinks all scientists are free to follow the evidence wherever it may lead.”
I look forward to seeing this documentary. It will make interesting discussion. Read the rest of the article on WorldNetDaily at and the official site promoting the documentary. If Richard Dawkins thinks he’s bad, he doesn’t know Ben Stein! Don’t let his humour fool you. You may agree not agree with Ben Stein but for one to simply brush him off does it at one’s own peril.
