Private Screening

You are invited to a FREE PRIVATE SCREENING of Ben Stein’s upcoming, history-making film, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed (Opening in theaters April 2008).

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed follows Ben Stein on his journey around the globe where he discovers that scientists, educators and philosophers are being persecuted in a modern day witch hunt because they dare to go against the theory of evolution. These pillars of education are being fired, ridiculed and ostracized for merely challenging Darwin’s theory; proposing that life on this planet could be a part of some intelligent design and not random chance.

This movie provides a rare opportunity to educate everyone on issues that deeply affect our families, schools, churches, courts and the progress of science and medicine. This film truly has the potential to have a positive impact on our society.

About the Movie
EXPELLED, starring Ben Stein, follows Ben’s heroic and shocking journey in which he discovers that students, educators and scientists are being ridiculed, and even fired – for the “crime” of merely believing that there is Evidence of “Design” in Creation (God), and that perhaps life is not just the result of accidental, random chance.

EXPELLED: No Intelligence Allowed, is already receiving National News Coverage
(Click to view articles – ABC News, New York Times, O’Reilly Factor, Christian Post, Variety, Access Research Network).

EXPELLED exposes Darwin elitists who suppress all who disagree with them – even scientists (yes, SCIENTISTS) whose new EVIDENCE erodes Darwin’s claims. This film will allow you to:

  • Learn about new scientific evidence that invalidates some of Darwin’s claims
  • Hear from scientists who are being SILENCED for those discoveries
  • Learn how to DEFEND your belief in God based on SCIENTIFIC evidence
  • Learn what can and cannot be taught in schools and how that is CHANGING nationwide

What People Are Saying

See all endorsements by visiting: www.GetExpelled.com/quotes.php

“I recommend the film enthusiastically! Ben Stein’s film exposes an entrenched and aggressive Darwinist establishment in academia that suffocates all competing points of view. What Ben Stein discovers in this riveting documentary is incredibly enlightening.” - James C. Dobson, Ph.D., Chairman of the Board, Focus on the Family

“What Ben Stein is doing in this film is extremely important by opening up an honest debate in the public square where people can hear reasoned arguments on both sides and make their own conclusions. I love Ben Stein” - Chuck Colson, Radio Commentator, Founder of Prison Fellowship

“We highly recommend the movie to anybody. It is not only informative and challenging—it is fun to watch. Ben Stein’s interviews with avowed atheists, is well done as he elicits responses that leave grave doubt regarding their position of absolute disbelief in a creator and/or God”. - Ken Smitherman, President, Association of Christian Schools International

“EXPELLED is an engaging film. Ben Stein has given us a powerful documentary about the widespread repression of faith-friendly scientific scholarship. Along the way, he also makes a strong case for a return to civil discourse in a time when political correctness often overshadows the search for truth”. - Ronald D. Ellis, Ph.D., President, California Baptist University

“We are seeing the consequences of locking matters of faith out of our classrooms. We applaud Ben Stein for casting light on today's challenges to academic freedom.”- Luis Palau, President, Luis Palau Association

“Propaganda molds minds in a very direct way and that is the logjam in this situation, which the Ben Stein movie, EXPELLED: No Intelligence Allowed, seeks to break through. I wish it well – I hope under God it will have a great effect just at that point.”. -Dr J.I. Packer, theologian

If you seek intellectual integrity, see EXPELLED. If you enjoy thought-provoking conversation, bring a friend. If you value free speech, tell everyone you know to meet you at the movies and spend an alarming evening with Ben Stein. EXPELLED could easily be one of the most important movies of the year." - Denny Rydberg, President, Young Life

“The movie is powerful...shocking....intense....humorous at times....well worth seeing. This message must be given to the next generation or else....” - Jack Brown, CEO, Capitol Prayer

“If the Ben Stein movie is asking these questions and if somebody is keeping us from finding out the great answers to the great questions - then maybe they are more than just questions. Maybe they are questions with eternal consequences.” - Peter Furler, lead singer, The Newsboys

For those of you reading this blog who think that Ben Stein was in any way the motivating force behind this movie, please reconsider.

From the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention Texan interview with Logan Craft (executive producer of Expelled):


TEXAN: How did Ben Stein come to be involved in the film?

CRAFT: Well, John (Sullivan, producer of Expelled) had a real insight, we believe, into the necessity to have a person, first of all, who wasn’t overtly Christian or overtly religious…

Ben Stein is a hack!

This film is a manufactured argument, cleverly crafted to advance a conservative christian agenda. ID at this point, after almost 20 years and millions of dollars tossed at it by the Discovery Institute, is still merely a vague idea. It has not yet even been fleshed out into a valid scientific hypothesis, and certainly hasn’t developed into a viable or testable theory.

So at this point, the ID/creationist movement is merely a well-funded public relations effort trying to rally public support promoting “science/evolution = atheists = Naziism”, rather than offering any positive evidence of the “designer”, or “design”.

“Tens of millions of Americans, who neither know nor understand the actual arguments for or even against evolution, march in the army of the night with their Bibles held high. And they are a strong and frightening force, impervious to, and immunized against, the feeble lance of mere reason.”
—Isaac Asimov

hope readers will see the film and come to their own conclusion...

Yes, it's necessary to see the movie. The mere fact that the producers came up with a fake movie called Crossroads with a completely different subject that they said they were making in order to get interviews with the scientists that they're so proud of certainly doesn't suggest that they're willing to deceive in order to get their message across.

The fact that it was founded on a lie certainly doesn't mean that the rest of the movie is likely to end up being just as deceitful.

A note to those that go, check up on the facts behind the claims presented in the movie. In particular, you may find that some of the people who you'll be told were fired from their jobs for asking questions were never fired at all.

You might also ponder the question of why the movie allegedly interested in people being expelled because of their take on evolution fails to mention the examples of individuals who have been fired for having positive takes on religion.

It might start to look like intellectual freedom is only important to the makers of the film if it's freedom to think what THEY want people to think.

Which, of course, isn't intellectual freedom at all.

Have you seen this movie?

Why are you sharing this secret RSVP site with the general public? Wasn't it given to you in utmost confidence? What would happen if people who were not wholly in sycophantic agreement with the film's message were to get hold of it?

steveh said...

Sorry, I was being facecious. The link is well known now so please, please don't remove it. And if you do please acknowledge its removal.

However, I would be interested to know if you were encouraged to share the link with others - for instance as part of a grassroots, word of mouth marketing campaign.

The problem is that a lot of people who are unaware about the issues can get easily misled by the film. They will not bother to check the facts for themselves, and it is a shame. It's a film with a clear motive that will not provide a balanced view.

Ironic ... That is the point of this film!
