Expelled

Warwick alerted readers here to the film "Expelled" produced by Ben Stein. I had the opportunity to see it tonight.

It runs for about 90 mins and because the group of friends I was with had a lot of things to do on the night we decided we would watch 45 mins tonight and the remainder another night. However, so riveting was it that we watched it all the way through in one sitting.

Ben Stein is such a disarming interviewer he got opponents of Intelligent Design to expose their motives and the paucity of their explanation of evolution by natural selection as the means of the origin of life. It is clear that the paradigm is sustained by rhetoric and not evidence.

Of particular interest is the last few minutes of the film when Richard Dawkins, the guru of world atheism, is interviewed. I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet, suffice to say that Richard Dawkins was interviewed in "From a Frog to a Prince" and "Expelled" and unwittingly does a hatchet job on the paradigm of evolution. All one has to do with this guy is ask the logical questions rather than ask "Dorothy Dixers!"

I thoroughly recommend "Expelled" for viewing.
