"Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" Opens Friday

Should we be talking about this movie/documentary, which opens up Friday, April 18th.

Probably...and a lot of people have been. Supposedly, it is one of the most talked about blog topics right now, according to an email I got that I already deleted. I blogged about it briefly over 2 months ago!

The main premise:
"educators and scientists are being ridiculed, denied tenure and even fired – for the “crime” of merely believing that there might be evidence of “design” in nature, and that perhaps life is not just the result of accidental, random chance."

The movie "confronts the world’s top scientists, educators and philosophers, regarding the persecution of the many by an elite few."

Simply put...the movie challenges if you don't support Evolution and think God or something created the world with a purpose then you are an idiot. Why is there no freedom to share a view different than evolution/big bang/Darwin's Survival of the Fittest which are all improvable and in the case of Darwin, extremely out of date and no longer relevant in the science community.

From what I understand this movie tries to find out why people can't have freedom to share their view and may also state the side of Intelligent Design. It includes interviews from big name Atheist supporters.
It is as much about Freedom of Speech and persecution as it is about God...
