More Lies Supporting Expelled: The Movie

Ben Stein is putting his smirk and whiny voice to ads for the DVD release of Expelled: The Movie, No Intelligence Allowed. Christmas is just around the corner and a rotten lump of pseudo-scientific coal makes such a great stocking stuffer for the kids. In the ads, Mr. Stein claims Expelled is the #1 documentary of 2008. I think not. Let’s check the stats. Expelled grossed about 7.7 million and opened in 1052 theaters, while Bill Mahr’s documentary Religulous grossed 10.6 million and only opened in 502 theaters. If Mr. Stein is alluding to the reviews of Expelled making it #1, then he is wrong on that point, too. Most reviews were resoundingly negative. For example, The New York TImes said,

Mixing physical apples and metaphysical oranges at every turn “Expelled” is an unprincipled propaganda piece that insults believers and nonbelievers alike. In its fudging, eliding and refusal to define terms, the movie proves that the only expulsion here is of reason itself.

Finally, if you go to the Expelled website you can crash their ironic poll asking, “Do you think Darwin’s theories are outdated?” If Darwin is over-the-hill, then creationism is fossilized. I made a funny.

    Genesis 1:27, “So God made man in his own image”.
    Genesis 2:7, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground.”
    Genesis 2:21-22, “And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, …the Lord had taken from man, made he a woman, & brought her unto the man”.
    From the above verses, it is obvious that God formed man/woman from dust instead of transforming apes to human beings.

    The bible calls the earth an immovable table set on pillars. Is the earth flat?

    Psalm 93:1 He has established the world; it shall never be moved;

    Samuel 2:8 For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and on them he has set the world.

    Isaiah 24:18 or the windows of heaven are opened, and the foundations of the earth tremble.

    Don’t be gullible!

    to don’t be gullible:

    don’t be ignorant:
    It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
    . . . stretches out the heavens like a curtain
    And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.

    isaiah 40:22

    have you had grade school english yet to learn about metaphors?
