EXPELLED!—Elgin Opera House . . . .
On the road in the American Northwest.

On my way biking from La Grande to Enterprise along Highway 82,
I passed through the little town of Elgin. I stopped to make a photo
of the historic Opera House, now nearly 100 years old.

As I got closer, I was amazed to read the sign. EXPELLED! "Look
at this," I exclaimed to myself. Now, I haven't seen the film, and in
all honesty, I wouldn't really be very interested in doing so. But I
HAVE by chance listened to the Scientific American Podcast in
which Steve Mirsky discussed the film before its release with editor-
in-chief John Rennie. In my view, the film has much less to do with
the sham-debate between evolutionary theory and so-called intelligent
design; it is evidently more the deliberately deceptive work
of essentially anti-scientific and anti-democratic fundamentalists
with a strongly reactionary, but covert, political agenda.

Clearly, we need the help of Ben Franklin & David Bohm.
Expelled, indeed!

"Welcome to Expelled Exposed, a detailed look at the Ben Stein
movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. We'll show you why this
movie is not a documentary at all, but anti-science propaganda
aimed at creating the appearance of controversy where there
is none."
