While universities are known to be places where bright minds expand the frontiers of knowledge, in a new documentary, Ben Stein has found that scientists in these institutions are being stifled and prohibited from straying from ideas that don’t agree with the Big Bang Theory.
According to Motive Entertainment, Ben Stein, famous for his role as the monotone teacher from the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and the TV show, “The Wonder Years”, “is on a journey to answer one of the biggest questions ever asked: Were we designed or are we simply the end result of an ancient mud puddle struck by lightning?”
Throughout his journey, Stein discovers scientists who “have had their reputations destroyed and their careers ruined by a scientific establishment that allows absolutely no dissent from Charles Darwin’s theory of random mutation and natural selection.” The movie reveals how educators “are being ridiculed, denied tenure and even fired in some cases for the fact that they believe there is evidence of “design” in nature, challenging the idea that life is a result of random chance.”
“The incredible thing about ‘Expelled’ is that we don’t resort to manipulating our interviews for the purpose of achieving the ‘shock effect,’ something that has become common in documentary film these days,” said Walt Ruloff, co-founder of Premise Media and co-Executive Producer.
“People will be stunned to actually find out what elitist scientists proclaim, which is that a large majority of Americans are simpletons who believe in a fairy tale. Premise Media took on this difficult mission because we believe the greatest asset of humanity is our freedom to explore and discover truth.”
“Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” is scheduled for release in February 2008. For more information on Ben Stein’s journey visit www.expelledthemovie.com.
