I love Ben Stein

February 29, 2008

I have for quite some time, and my love for him has grown with his current project. Dale sent me the link the other day. It appears to be a documentary about academic bias with specific regards to criticism of evolutionary theory. Stein makes it clear in the trailer that he believes in a creator, but the crux of the film seems to be not whether creationist theories should be taught, but rather that scientists who speak out against evolution or indicate any religious beliefs shouldn’t be castigated simply for opposing the status quo.

The close-minded would have you believe it’s simply propaganda for Intelligent Design, but it’s really a matter of free speech and not being persecuted for your beliefs.

    Fan, quite interesting and spot on. I never thought of it as limiting free speech. But that is for sure. Another form of liberalistic authority trying to take our freedoms and rule over us after the majority of society has abdicated the major of their freedoms.

    It just amazes me that more people don’t see the hypocrisy of it.
