"Q" is for Questioning the Orthodoxy

Hubs and I went to see the documentary EXPELLED tonight with some friends. We all found it to be really thought-provoking, and we enjoyed a good discussion about it afterward.

Ben Stein produced the documentary when he started hearing about scientists being black balled by their scientific communities for daring to openly question Darwinism.

It is an important film about the state of academic freedom in America and how it is currently being threatened. The stories that some of the scientists told were both frightening and sad.

I might also add that this film is not a Christian manifesto against Darwinism. Ben Stein himself is Jewish, and the scientists he interviewed are have varied religious views.

I highly recommend the film. Go see it with some friends and then have a good discussion about it afterward!

I am really interested in seeing this. I like to be forced to think.

I saw that this movie was playing in our neighborhood the other day, and thought that it might be interesting. Perhaps I'll get to see it...
