If You Haven’t Seen ‘Expelled…’

If you missed it when it came out in 2008, I encourage you to see Expelled: The Movie. Because we’re very far from being done with “scientific” inquisitions.

Here’s my review, which I wrote at the time:

This film has a lot to say about how iffy science gets turned into “settled science” that you question at your peril. And leftists want the government to run the inquisition. Don’t forget–the 2016 Democrat platform, the platform Hillary Clinton ran on, called for the U.S. attorney general to “investigate” Climate Change denial… as a crime. Her administration would be doing that right now, if she hadn’t lost the election.

They didn’t need the government to launch and sustain the inquisition over Darwinism denial–most of whose victims are themselves credentialed scientists. Now and then they got the courts involved: nothing like an ACLU lawsuit to scare a local school board out of allowing its science teachers to discuss Intelligent Design.

Science is a very valuable tool, when statists and self-anointed know-it-alls aren’t debauching it.

P.S.–Ben Stein’s interview of atheist motormouth Richard Dawkins is worth the price of admission. I’m sure you can find this movie somewhere on the Internet, either on YouTube or amazon.com.
