Little intelligence found
April 17, 2008
The Los Angeles Times featured some debate about Ben Stein's new documentary, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, which seeks to expose how a cult of Darwinism has overtaken our public-school science classes. I like Ben Stein, but I'm pretty skeptical about this film, and the reputable reviews are generally negative. Moreover, it reportedly draws connections between today's science classes and Nazi Germany, which is bizarre.
I wish I could write something more authoritative, but the people in charge of screening the film in D.C. had to cancel because of sound problems, which indicates either a) that after scanning the list of potential attendees, the promoters decided showing the film would be a bad idea, or b) incompetence. Neither inspires confidence in Expelled's worth.
