Expelled: No Intelligence Found - Why Ben Stein's documentary on intelligent design lacks intelligence
Don't let Ben Stein fool you with his role as Ferris Bueller's teacher, his Clear Eyes commercials, or his self-named Comedy Central trivia show. His recent documentary, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed is pathetic.
Aptly named, this documentary (which I forced myself to watch to the end last night) proves that it lacks intelligence by completely ignoring the primary argument used by scientists for not accepting intelligent design (ID) as science - ID does not, nor can it, provide any testable hypotheses.
If you ask any scientist who does not accept ID as science why they do so, this will be the main reason they give; and yet this key argument is not mentioned a single time throughout all of the whining and complaining done by Ben Stein and his fellow ID theorists in the film. Instead of even acknowledging this important bit of information, they instead conjure up absurd conspiracies and even try to use fear-mongering by poorly and fallaciously attempting to tie Darwinism to Nazism and eugenics.
After watching the documentary, I was completely flabbergasted (love that word). How is it that they could have wasted nearly 2 hours of my time complaining of ID not being accepted as science, when they don't even acknowledge the primary reason given for their exclusion.
That they interview Dawkins and other critics of ID, but fail to mention this point further shows the dishonesty of Ben Stein and the film's producers as these critics would have surely brought up their main criticism of ID.
I won't even go into their repeated misreprestations of evolution, Darwinism, science, and historical facts. For that you can check out this site.
