Ben Stein’s movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed has made its case even before its first public showing.
The movie, which opens this week, is about science clashing with teachers who side with the possibility that man and the universe had a designer. Some teachers have even been “expelled” for their view…or at least ridiculed. The opposition to the Intelligent Design school of thought is so strong that not only have jobs been placed in jeapordy, but censorship reigns free.
The movie’s exposition of censorship in the educational system should no longer be a stretch in anyone’s mind. Those of you that peruse the internet, blogging and chatting, should already know about the ID hate that is out there.
I’ve had links to the movie site removed from group discussions, gone round and round about the topic, and all of a sudden heard about this Ben Stein hate…normally considered a loveable actor who played a teacher in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
Today’s example of ID suppression comes from a blogger who is in the process of setting up a To Hell with Expelled Blog Carnival. If you hurry, you can get your submission in today! wink wink
This from the Dinosaurs and The Bible: A Creationist’s Fairy Tale blog:
You have until tomorrow at 8PM EST to get your submissions in for To Hell with Expelled Blog Carnival. And please, no pro Expelled posts. I had to delete a pro Expelled post which claims the movie is all about free speech and asks, “What is wrong with presenting both sides of the issue since both issues are claimed to be faith based?”
Answer: The movie is not about free speech. It’s about pure criminal deception and everything done only in the favor of YE creationists and IDists. The film presents only ONE faith based issue and this film is only a ONE-sided issue which favors intelligent design and creationism and all of its deceit, distortions, dishonesty, and criminal activities within while giving the other side no chances of ever making their side of the issue known. And if one were given a chance to give out their side of the issue, the creationist would make a big noise to drown out the truth, take that side out of context, shunning out everything they hate, and twist and distort it about to make it look so bad that it will make the lay audience be herded into only seeing the creationist side of the issue and nothing else. That’s how creationists manipulate, proselytize, and indoctrinate people into creationism in the most crafty, deceptive, dangerous way.
My, my….why all the hate?
