Extended Trailer of Expelled the Movie

An extended trailer for the movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed was shown to the recent Values Voter Summit. It was followed by a speech by Ben Stein. The relevant part begins at about the 27th minute mark, or you can get there by clicking the "next track" button- at least on my browser.

The clips are quick, but it gives a little more flavor about where they are going with this. The film seems to be very focused on free speech rights.

The highlights:

Richard Dawkins says, "As a scientist I am pretty hostile to a rival doctrine."

Daniel Dennett: "It's all propaganda."

At the end, Stein notes the likelihood of hardship for anyone who chooses to challenge Darwinian orthodoxy. He concludes, "If you do leave, will anyone be left to fight this battle? Anyone? Anyone?"

Yes, because Dawkins doesn't look like he's in the middle of a sentence which has been cut off at all......

Since it looks like Ben Stein doesn't shy away from manipulating video footage to forward his cause (the Dawkins quote), I think Daniel Dannett might have a point.

"macroevolutionary theory is built more on a priori philosophical assumptions than on evidence."

You fit the definition of an IDiot.

I might try an appeal to an authority:

WASHINGTON -- The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and Institute of
Medicine (IOM) today released SCIENCE, EVOLUTION, AND CREATIONISM, a book designed to give the public a comprehensive and up-to-date picture of the current scientific understanding of evolution and its importance in the science classroom.
