1.0 out of 5 stars Complete, utter garbage May 19 2009
By Mary
Much information is false (Google for expelled exposed, for example), interviewees are misrepresented, and various claims are outright disgusting (like comparisons to the holocaust). The film's narrator/host is very silly, at times almost like he's trying to be like Michael Moore (shots of walking on the street, and a completely staged in front of a "live" audience), at others a prop (cut to Ben nodding or trying to look intelligent), and even worse, always trying to appear like he was working from the position of neutrality, when in fact, he was not.

2.0 out of 5 stars A clearly biased attempt to discredit science June 11 2009
By J. Tupone TOP 500 REVIEWER
Ben Stein is an impressive individual - he's highly accomplished, intelligent and witty and has been involved in many diverse pursuits. While I admire him for sharing his views, no matter how controversial, he is a clearly biased individual. This documentary is packaged as a defence of free speech with regards to the intelligent design movement and many proponents of that movement being stonewalled for sharing their views in academia.

The film begins by discussing the backlash against ID advocates in the academic world and Ben Stein clearly views this as a violation of free speech and academic freedom; I don't necessarily disagree. He goes further though, in making an attempt to give credence to ID as a scientific theory (which is not according to US federal court & most scientists) by interviewing several proponents of ID. Many of the proponents are in fact scientists, while many are philosophers or sociologists.

This film, however, even goes so far as to blame Darwin's theory of evolution for the Nazi's views on Aryan supremacy, for the eugenics crimes that took place in many western countries in the early 20th century and for pretty much everything religious folks consider to be immoral (like assisted suicide, abortion, etc).

The one positive thing I can say about this film is that is reveals a great deal about the ID issue. It's a point of view that's difficult to find anywhere else. Several accomplished scientists who are ID proponents are interviewed in the film and are frank about their views on ID. Interestingly, a number of these proponents were originally going to testify on behalf of the defendants in Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District (the federal ID case that banned ID being taught as science), but chose not to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Evolution or Intelligent Design March 21 2009
By falcon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
i found this documentary interesting think it is balanced and shows
both sides of the issue.Intelligent design proponents as well as
evolutionary proponents are interviewed.some of the things they talk
about are a bit of a stretch,i think.plus,i wish they had injected a
bit of humour and made things a bit lighter to lighten the mood. also
the documentary is very sobering,and even sad at times.but no matter
what side of the fence you are on,you might find this documentary of
interest,maybe even informative,though some of the interviews may have
been edited and/or taken out of context(like any documentary)so you
really have to be careful.for those of you on the fence about this
issue,this documentary could lead you to do your own research and come
to your own conclusions.as interesting as this documentary was,i can't
use the word entertaining to describe it because it was so serious and
dour.nevertheless,it was worth watching.for me,Expelled: NO
intelligence Allowed is a 3/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Scientists running scared of ID Aug. 28 2011
By rossuk TOP 500 REVIEWER
To understand this DVD you need to realise that it is an American phenomena. The young earth creationists want creationism to be taught at school, then along come the Intelligent Design (ID) group which is based on the observation of data at the cellular level. The scientific elite (Smithsonian) want nothing to do with ID because it could be a back door to creationism (and God). Therefore the elite silence any mention of ID. The big question is whether ID can contribute anything to science. If it could then it would be pretty stupid and unscientific to silence it. The elite also put a limit to freedom of thought/discussion within the science community, which is not healthy for science, good science comes from thinking outside the envelope (of current dogma).

The program goes on to show the natural outworking of Darwinian evolution that resulted in eugenics (in the USA and Germany) and the holocaust. There is a fascinating interview with British Atheist Richard Dawkins who could not explain the origin of life and posited panspermia, which only removes the problem to another planet. The DVD was better than I expected, it was certainly thought provoking, whether or not you agree with ID.

A good intro to ID is the DVD Unlocking The Mystery Of Life [DVD], on the link between eugenics and Darwinism see Darwin's Dangerous Idea [DVD], episode 2.

1.0 out of 5 stars Propaganda Oct. 22 2008
This is an extremely biased look at the so called intelligent design/evolution "debate".

The premise is that ID proponents are being discriminated against in the universities by "Darwinists". To do this they present a number of cases of alleged discrimination. Each of those cases has been thoroughly debunked on the Expelled Exposed site. They do not explain why the scientific community is seeking to keep creationism out of the classroom, nor do they present ANY evidence for why it should be considered alongside evolution.

Another major premise is that "Darwinism", or natural selection, was a key component and motivation in the Holocaust. While Nazi eugenics was a form of social Darwinism, to blame Darwin, or evolution, is completely absurd. Human's have understood and used artificial selection for thousands of years to create crops and livestock. The Nazi program was the result of a lot of things gone bad but to blame Darwin's idea is just wrong.

If you are interested in this topic and do plan to watch this movie please do read some of the articles on the Expelled Exposed site (google it) too.

It's ironic that Ben Stein's point is so clearly proven by the many angry reviewers against this movie. Stein does not come out for or against ID. Read more
