Expelled, the Movie.
From Tom Ascol:
Ben Stein chronicles the experiences of scientists who have been blackballed by the academy for questioning the ideologies of Darwinism, global warming and the like. Stories about such leftwing fundamentalism have been accumulating through the years, but no one has ever attempted to weave them all together and portray them on the big screen. Evidently, that is exactly what "Expelled" attempts to do. It ought to be fascinating to watch antics of those who, while screaming for academic freedom and ideological pluralism, militantly cut off dissident voices that dare question current scientific dogma.I might add that it might help to shed some serious light on "peer review." It's high time it be exposed for the farce that it is. It's mighty easy to say somebody hasn't produced a peer reviewed work when the establishment is using the process to keep dissent out. Personally, I find it highly ironic that those who talk about religion stifling free inquiry and calling on the days of the Inquisition are the ones today practicing the same tactics. I'm reminded of how this works even in biblical scholarship. One need only thumb through the index of a standard liberal commentary and compare it to a standard evangelical commentary to see who is interacting with the other side.
One can already see the Darwinian Fundamentalists in action in Mr. Stein's first post.
