Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed

Ben Stein's movie "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" is an entertaining and thought-provoking investigation into the fanaticism of genetic evolutionists' commitment to Darwin's theory.

Through interviews with Darwinian and Intelligent Design geneticists, Stein unveils the political correctness of academia and mainstream journalism and the pressure to conform to an atheistic worldview. He also highlights the American Scientific community's marginalization of brilliant scientists who do not adhere to the party line.

The greatest weakness of "Expelled" is Stein's limitation of the expose's scope to genetics. This is also what makes the presentation so effective. The complexity of genetics makes Uber-Darwinians vulnerable to criticism by open-minded, truth-seeking scientists.

I hope that Ben Stein will produce a sequel which highlights the conflict between Darwinian Linguists and truth-seeking Linguists who find no evidence for the evolutionary development of human languages from a single original language.

Genesis can't be used to support Darwinian linguistics. While many creationists insist that Noah's three sons are the ancestors of all the linguistic groups of the world, Genesis 10 reveals that they and their descendents are Afro-Asiatic peoples. The Afro-Asiatic language family is one of 17 distinct language families. These language families do not share a common proto-language though Darwinians and young-earth creationists insist they must.
