I am excited about a new movie that is about to hit the theaters on April 18. It is already causing so much controversy about the subject. Most who are speaking out against the movie do not even know what it is about. Most, think the movie is about believing in “creationism”. The fact is, though, is that the movie “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” is a documentary showing that those who even question evolution, are persecuted, shut up, threatened, fired, banned, and etc. This movie is a somewhat comical documentary by Ben Stein showing all of this and asking, “Why do evolutionists have free speech about what they believe, but there is absolutely no room for free speech of those who even “dare” thinking about questioning evolution. This evolutionist mindset is the antithesis of science, and true science welcomes complete investigation and does not censor it.

I encourage you to check your local theater to see if “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” will be shown there starting April 18, and if not, give them a call and ask them to show it. You can be sure, those that do not want you to even question evolution will be knocking at their doors “suggesting” they don’t show it. Be brave; go against the flow, rebel, and “dare” to see it. I plan on it.

    I wonder, would a public school teacher in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, be allowed to say the following:

    “It is interesting to contemplate … [all the many forms of life on earth] … so different from each other, have all been produced by laws acting around us. … There is grandeur in this view of life, HAVING BEEN ORIGINALLY BREATHED BY THE CREATOR INTO A FEW FORMS OR INTO ONE; and that from so simple a beginning, endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved.”

    Just imagine a public school teacher who says those words: that God creates life and places it on the earth in a few forms, and then that life evolves according to the physical and natural laws that God put into place in the universe.

    Would that be allowed?

    Actually, it should be REQUIRED FOR THE TEACHER TO SAY THAT.

    Why? Because the quote is from: On the Origin of the Species, Chapter XV, Recapitulation and Conclusion, By Charles Darwin.

    If you are going to teach Darwin’s theory of evolution in public schools, you should teach what Darwin actually wrote about it.

    If you believe in God, you really have only two choices:

    1. God created all life on earth like a carnival magician, or the Amazing Kreskin: a wave of the hands and poof! there was life. That’s Creationism. (I dont believe God does his handiwork like a second rate magician.)

    or…

    2. God created all the processes, chemistry, mathematics, and physical laws that govern the universe with an end in mind – the creation of life. It’s a belief in God as powerful and intelligent on a grand scale. In this belief, evolution IS intelligent design. It’s not random, though it may have random elements. The goal was to create man.

    All of science – everything we have learned so far – leads us to this view. It is not incompatible. I recall that AT&T/Bell Labs scientists won the Nobel Prize for “hearing” the remaining noise of the Big Bang – the origin of the Universe. But what they couldn’t answer – an no scientist can yet answer – is where did the original matter come from, and how did life get breathed into it?

    Einstein proved that space and time are related, and postulated that the Universe is finite. What is beyond the finite universe? What is its purpose?

    I am an engineer by training, and have always enjoyed science and scientific inquiry. I believe that scientific inquiry only leads to one thing: the discovery and understanding of the rules of the Universe – how God decided the Universe would work.

    That leaves us one question: Why?

    And THAT is the right question.

    Thanks for the post Michael,
    In reference to #1 in your post,

    1. God created all life on earth like a carnival magician, or the Amazing Kreskin: a wave of the hands and poof! there was life. That’s Creationism. (I dont believe God does his handiwork like a second rate magician.)

    A carnival magician does his thing through trickery and slight of hand, while what God says and does is true. (A first rate magician!)

    just saw Expelled; the fact that Ben Stein isn’t trying to win any popularity contests helps to validate his message… i gather that his goal is to promote free thought, especially more thinking about the worldviews that drive American academia
