This is not a docu, it's propaganda!,
This review is from: Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed [DVD] (DVD)This is one of the most fake, unreliable, uncomplete and unbalanced docu's i've ever seen. How can you call this a docu anyway?? This Movie is pure propaganda! You can clearly tell by how the docu was made...
They put these so-called scientist supporting creationisme and intelligent design completly into the spotlight. Victimized by some conspiracy of a 'obscure darwinian organisation', but fail to talk bout the (real) reason why they got expelled. They have clearly the upperhand in this 'documentary'. And then you have real scientist shown by very short and select statements, shown as somewhat - in a dark place - as 'absurd, godforsaken men'.
This docu also doesn't even talk about the core of evolution or creationisme, or any way to define both. Nor realy about these scientist that got fired from their faculty or university. They are allowed to talk about their believes with no need of factual back-up. Had the director given the same amount of time and attention to the evolutionary scientist... well, we wouldn't have this 'duco' then...
Also their attempt to link the evolutionary science to Hitler and nazi-ism and somehow suggesting science is and leads to evil, is really lame. As if religion never caused tentions, wars and yes, even holocausts. Suggesting living without religion is an empty, evil life. That living without it makes you a radical athiest. Like there's no such thing as relgious fundamentalism. Although (the) burdens of religion are never mentioned here, living without it can be a relieve and a mind opener, and is in my opinion also worht of a debate. Still, the director didn't find it necessary to show both sides of the story.
This movie is full of opinion and propaganda and has a huge lack of data.
It's cheap approach suggested to show how this ideological group of people are stigmatised by the darwinian 'fascist' scientists. But the hypocrisy is easily detected in this film, with 'their' attempt to marginalize 'these' darwinians.
This documentary is misleading, and is doing so by using terms as freedom, and freedom of speach, and basic American Values to back up these 'creationist scientist' - a term of 2 words contradicting themself - and to give them some credibility - also cause they don't actually have to talk about what it is they realy believe in then, but more by magnifying on the disbelieves of the evolutionary scientists.
The director is clearly trying to manipulate your thoughts on the subject. Suggesting there is a wide belief of intelligent design (creationisme) amongts the scientists. But they are just afraid to talk about it...
Of course this is not true!
There is no such thing as a conspiracy. There is not even a debate amongst academics whether it's evolution or intelligent disign that's at the base of all life on this planet. Evolution is well accepted in the scientific world, where it is considered the organizing principle of biology. It is grotesk and a lie.
There is a reason why these creationists are expelled from a scientific classroom.
Intelligent design is based on opinion and not on facts.
I rated this movie with 1 star cause i had to rate it something to give this review.
I hope this was helpful.
P.S.: It disgusts me how they Bring Reagan in association with freedom and democracy at the end of this docu! Ask the people of Chile what they think of Reagan's so-called freedom and democracy, or the many other countries he'd spred his reign of terror on. Like El Salvador, Nicaragua, Iran, Honduras, Guatemala, Cambodia, East Timor, South Africa and surrounding countries, ...

You are showing by your comment that you actually support the hypothesis of the movie. To state that there is not even a debate among academics clearly shows that you try to exclude scientist who do not adhere to evolutionistic dogma from being labeled 'academics'.
That is exactly what this movie is about: the lack of academic freedom.

"this movie is about... lack of academic freedom"
Even if that is the case are you arguing that academic freedom includes the freedom to teach lies and nonsense in the classroom?
