Intelligent Design vs. Science on the big screen

Cruisin' the net today and came across something interesting:

Expelled

Please click on the link above. It will take you to a website by Ben Stine (Bueler...Bueler...). He's known as somewhat of an intellectual and well, seems he's been asking questions. Can God and science coexist? Can Intelligent Design be taught in United States schools or are we only allowed to teach theories of a scientific nature?

His documentary is coming to a theater near you. Click on the link. Click on links within the site to see if you might want to check out his movie. Ask if your school is teaching all it can or limiting questions as well as answers and theories. I haven't seen the movie, but I plan to.

Here's betting on Ben Stine's money.

I've heard of this is sounds interesting. I don't think I'll see it in theater's though. But you should post your review of it :-)

I had not heard of this movie. But, Hey I hope chronicler will review it over on her site and you too Smee.

Joe says he can't wait to see it! i think it looks great! But being as I am I may have to wait for Netflix.

Red and Pea, I'm not sure why this hasn't gotten more press. I just found it by random blog reading. Perhaps because the subject matter challenges the norm? Anywho, I would love to see it, but like you two, maybe have to wait. grrrr.

I haven't heard of it either. I will definitely check it out.

That looks great. I looked on Netflix and it's not on there yet. I would love to see this (and as yes, Netflix is my ticket to doing that). Let me know how it is.

The only review I've read made quite a bit of mention of the fact that they don't do much analysis in their documentary. Just a lot of "wild assertions" about what is and isn't allowed to be taught, without really backing it up with any specific examples from certain school districts, or statistics nationwide and so forth. While I'm on his side, I hope he at least did some research/homework to make it reputable.
