Review of Expelled the Movie

I have encountered the first review of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed by someone who has seen the entire film. It is basically a hatchet job by someone who does not understand intelligent design and who writes pretty badly. Given the nearly complete negativity of the review, this stood out:

One of the few funny parts of the film, though, is Stein's interview with British philosopher of science Richard Dawkins. Dawkins' best-selling book The God Delusion is a clarion call for atheism, making him a bete-noire of the religious right. Ben Stein, marshalling the intellectual resources of Ferris Bueller's boring teacher, gets the better of him. Dawkins comes out of it looking pretty silly.

Update: Links to most of my posts relating to Ben Stein and this film can be found here.

Doesn't Dawkins generally look silly? He produced an incompetent and clueless review of Behe's The Edge of Evolution. Do Darwinists really regard this character as a good biologist?

They offer to "bribe" schools to bring their kids:

But hurry to register - there's a limited amount of bribe money. Last come - not served.

Calling donations to schools "bribes" doesn't make them bribes. But it does says a lot about you and your eagerness to spin the facts. So does your posting as "anonymous."

It seems to me that your worldview seriously distorts your perception of reality.

Thank you for using your intelligence in looking at the scientific evidence and coming to your own conclusion. Today we are being force feed a popular theory that is being fronted as fact. Evolution, ID and Creationism are all theories but here is the distinction that I have made, Evolutionists will not allow any other theory to tread on their space. That is the real problem.

"Evolution, ID and Creationism are all theories"

But one is a scientific theory and the other is a religious theory. The word "theory" has a specific scientific meaning, but that little truth seems to have eluded you.

You've got it backwards - science is the proper perception of reality and religion is unthinking belief in a non-reality.
