Expelled Exposed: A resource to counter Ben Stein’s vile and despicable crapfest

As you may know, Ben Stein’s execrable crapfest of a movie, Expelled!: No Intelligence Allowed, slimes its way into theatres on Friday. From my perspective, the biggest, most vile lie pushed by Ben Stein and produce Mark Mathis is that it’s a direct line from their hated “Darwinism” to the Holocaust, as I’ve pointed out twice before, but another major theme of the movie is that the poor, “truth-seeking” intelligent design creationists are ruthlessly “expelled” by those (pick one or more) atheistic/Stalinist/Nazi Darwinists.

Fortunately, there is a resource to counter Ben Stein’s lies (and, yes, they are lies; either that or Ben Stein is just to deluded, ignorant, or stupid to realize their untruth): Expelled! Exposed. Thanks to the National Center for Science Education, there is now a quick and easy site to find the truth behind the fiction and to learn about the deceptions of Premise Media and the producers of the movie.

Spread the word!

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
