Today I went to the movie theater to see the new documentary Expelled featuring Ben Stein. It was very intriguing and fascinating. Ben Stein did a good job approaching the topic of evolution and intelligent design objectively and asking open, very good, and thought-provoking questions.
It was definitely a documentary; so don’t go to the theater thinking you’re going to see a “movie.” Nevertheless, the content was fantastic. He compared what is happening in America to what happened in Nazi Germany, and that in and of itself was eye-opening and challenging. If nothing else, definitely get it when it comes out on DVD. I think it would be great to take an evening to watch and discuss the movie in a small group setting.
