Well, we were finally able to rent Ben Stein's Expelled last night and let me tell you - it was UNBELIEVABLE! If you haven't seen this documentary, do yourself the favor. Stein far surpassed my highest expectations and I'm not exaggerating.
The film clearly communicated the rationality of ID; the inescapable links between Darwinism and racism, nihilism, determinism, ethnic cleansing, abortion, euthanasia, and atheism; the FACT that worldview commitments inform our attempts at science and not vice versa; how superficial and inadequate most attempts to reconcile evolution and the Bible are; there was even mention of Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood and Eugenics growing out of the practical application of Darwinism!!!
I've never seen such a poignant demonstration of Romans-one truth suppression. Where's all the evidence? Why is God hiding Himself? [asks Richard Dawkins in a final scene]: Perhaps ... no, certainly ... it is we who work feverishly to hide Him. Exquisite.
