Enter intelligent design. I do not like the "explain everything" attitude of people from this perspective. But their attempt to integrate the idea that a creator exists with scientific observation is a step in a new direction. In effect, they ask a fundamental question: If it is more reasonable to conclude that a creator might be present, because of the complexity of the observations that are made, why not do that? An honest scientist, one who is not intent on discrediting the possibility of "God" at any cost, might do that. Many in history, after examining the heavens or the seas, or other aspects of nature, have come to these kinds of conclusions.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
