Ben Stein On Intelligent Design

No I haven't seen the movie but I did find this nice site that reviewed it. I'm curious as to whether I will have a similar opinion. I am entertained that she considers Sicko so highly and yet comes down so hard on the Stein movie. Smacks of attraction to the opinion of the movie as opposed to the movie itself. If the movie is bad or good because of the content, that isn't really a review of the movie but rather a review of opinion promoted. That would be akin to a bad review of Harry Potter because you don't like witchcraft or sorcery.

That being said, this blog is an intelligent read and gets some good both in favor of an opposed to her reviews.

just saw Expelled; Ben Stein's goal in making this flick (i gather) was not to win any popularity contests (this by itself helps to validate his message)... his goal was to promote free thought, especially more thinking about motivations that drive American academia and a lot of other behind-the-scenes worldview that we tend to take for granted.
