Ben Stein’s documentary, due for release in April, certainly promises to be a movie to watch out for.
It claims to expose the suppression and persecution that some scientists and academicians have gone through for not going along with Darwinism. Life in academic institutions, world over, has not been easy for those who believe that nature points to intelligent design by a Master Designer. It has not been easy for scientists, professors, and students. It has not been easy for parents who have had to avoid the public school systems and home-school their children.
So this movie, whether or not it conclusively establishes anything, will be welcomed by many who long for freedom in institutions to speak both for and against matters such as faith and creation. Voltaire is supposed to have said: ‘I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.’ Where is such freedom today?
