“Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed”
The Greatest Movie I have Ever Seen
In a time when an African-American can win the nomination of the Democratic Party to be the President of the United States of America, you would think that our educational system would be free from racism, and open to freedom of thought, expression, and inquiry. Nothing could be further from the truth. North America’s Universities do not allow academic freedom--if you question the belief system of “Darwinism”. The last vestiges of the horrible scourge of racism remain firmly entrenched in the science classrooms of our society. A new film called, “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed”, cuts to the heart of the systematic indoctrination of unbelief in God. In the United States of America, this film opened in 1,100 theatres, and was number 10 at the box-office. Over 1.2 million people have paid to see the film, and now it is coming to Canada.
How could a film, created by a Canadian, Walt Ruloff, cause so much controversy? I recently interviewed the host of “Expelled”, Ben Stein. He told me that, as a speechwriter for Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, he received a lot of hate mail, but that, since this movie was released, he has been attacked beyond belief. Why are educators, administrators, academics, scientists, and Darwinists so upset? Ben Stein presents the basic question, “how did life begin?” He cannot accept the orthodoxy of the standard Darwinian answer that, a bolt of lightning struck a puddle of mud and, voila, the first cell formed by chance, with over 100,000 moving parts. Throughout the film, he interviews the most notable scientists of the world, and the viewer quickly realizes that, their explanations are bizarre, unscientific, and unbelievable. The most famous evolutionist, Dr. Richard Dawkins, Chair for the Public Understanding of Science at the University of Oxford, outlines his hypothesis that an intelligent life form from another planet may have seeded life on earth.
Belief in aliens is acceptable to the average scientist in academia, but, if, as a scientist, you suggest that God, by intelligent design, created life, then you will be expelled from your academic position. Ben interviews nearly 50 scientists who cannot believe in the “Frankensteinian” bolt of lightning, and therefore, they present the intelligent design hypothesis in their classes and writings, and are, therefore, persecuted, humiliated, fired, or have their research funding removed. Many of these persecuted academics are world-renowned scientists who have made incredible discoveries and advances in knowledge. The intolerance of Darwinists is almost universal throughout the academic world, and, unfortunately, inhibits the advancement of knowledge, as they refuse to allow freedom of inquiry and expression.
Freedom of inquiry is the fundamental platform on which most universities of the world have been established. Harvard University’s promotional material states, “The advancement of knowledge depends fundamentally on the ability of individual scholars to formulate ideas and pursue truth, free from the influence...The university itself, must safeguard the core value of freedom of inquiry.” However, at Harvard, you are not free to inquire about intelligent design. This narrow-minded approach has stunted scientific developments in the field of biology, resulting in a lack of understanding of the intricacies of the cell, and how to cure disease.
The writer and Executive Producer of “Expelled”, Walt Ruloff, is a very successful entrepreneur. By thinking outside of the box, he developed complex computer systems to optimize logistics for large organizations. A majority of Fortune 2000 companies use his logistics systems to control the movements of millions of products and goods around the world. Walt wanted to apply his ingenuity to the biological world to help find cures and treatments for troubling diseases. He quickly found that the scientific community would not allow you to think outside of the box of Darwinism, thereby restricting the advancement of knowledge. Instead of bowing to the high priests of Darwinism, Walt made a movie to challenge their “supremacy”.
Two years ago I was involved in a CBC television debate with Dr. Richard Dawkins. In his documentary entitled, “Religion, the Root of All Evil”, he frequently states that evolution is an indisputable fact, and therefore nothing else should be permitted in the classroom. I challenged him, asking why he is so intolerant of opposing views, to the point where his view is the only acceptable option. I told him that he sounded like a secular fundamentalist. Later in the show, he apologized for sounding like a fundamentalist, but never backed down from his supremacist views.
I also asked Dr. Dawkins to complete the full title of the book he believes in, The Origin of Species, by Charles Darwin. He would not, so I completed it for him. The full title is, The Origin of Species Through the Process of Natural Selection of the Preservation of the Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. I asked Dr. Dawkins to admit that he teaches racism. He hummed and hawed, and said, “not exactly”.
Throughout the film, “Expelled”, Ben Stein walks through a journey of racism. Starting in Darwin’s house in England, Ben looks at his book, The Descent of Man, to see how and why Darwin’s teaching has led to so much death. The greatest butchers in the history of mankind have taken Darwin’s claim to its logical extreme, resulting in the death of over 100 million people in the Communist wars, and World War II. On page 178 of The Descent of Man, Darwin states, “At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilised races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world...The break between man and his nearest allies will then be wider, instead of as now between the negro or Australian (Aboriginals) and the gorilla." The natural end to Darwinist thought, is “Social Darwinism”.
Social Darwinism, or “Eugenics”, is the breeding of the strong in order to create a better race of people. Ben Stein labours through a tour of an institution in Germany where 60 to 70 handicapped children and adults were systematically put to death each day in the late 1930’s. The Nazis believed in Social Darwinism, and acted to purify bloodlines for the “Aryan race”. The theory is that, if you only allow strong people to live and procreate, the new race of humans will be stronger and healthier. Darwin, himself, taught that, no sane farmer would allow his weakest animals to breed. First, the Nazi’s killed the handicapped and infirmed. Eventually, Adolf Hitler exterminated 6 million Jews.
Such horrific teaching is not limited to the Nazis. Karl Marx mentioned Darwin in his book entitled, Das Kapital, and wrote to his friend that, "Darwin’s work is most important, and suits my purpose, in that it provides a basis in natural science for the historical class struggle." His Communist Manifesto was the basis for the Russian Revolution, the Soviet Union, and the Maoist Revolution in China. The devaluing of life led Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, to kill tens of millions of their citizens in their Communist revolutions. Together, these butchers killed more people than in all of the wars in the history of the world!
Such levels of racism can also be found in Canada. The CBC chose Tommy Douglas as "the greatest Canadian of all time", for establishing our national healthcare plan. Unfortunately, Tommy Douglas was a supporter of Social Darwinism. He wrote his Master’s thesis at McMaster University on the topic of Eugenics. Mr. Douglas wanted to do away with “subnormal people”. He advocated health certificates for marriage, forcing people to prove that they were not “subnormal”, or diseased. He also propagated segregation, in order to separate such people from the general population, so that they would not procreate and thus, erode the level of strength and purity of mankind. He offered further solutions of sterilization, “castration for homosexuals and chronic criminals”, and abortion to stop unwanted pregnancies.
Planned Parenthood has become a fixture in Canada, but few Canadians know of its roots and motives. Margaret Sanger was its founder, and, in its early form, the organization was called the “American Eugenics Society”. Ms. Sanger was an avid evolutionist who believed that abortion could advance the human race. In one of her letters, Ms. Sanger wrote that, the "lack of balance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the 'fit'…(is)…the greatest present menace to civilization." Ms. Sanger believed that, if she could provide abortion services to those whom she believed were "unfit", mankind would be purified. Sanger started the “Negro Project” as she believed that “blacks were simple, child-like brutes whose fertility needed managing the same way a farmer needs to tend to his breeding stock of sheep or cows.” According to LEARN (the Life, Education and Resource Network), 78% of all abortion clinics in America are in or near minority neighborhoods. African Americans make up12% of the general population, yet they account for 40% of the abortions. Margret Sanger’s eugenics is in full operation today. Planned Parenthood has now exterminated hundreds of thousands of babies, mostly paid for by your tax dollars.
The devaluing of life has consequences. Ben Stein lost many of his uncles and aunts to the horrors of the Holocaust. His journey is a painful one, but through his eyes, we see the terrible result of reducing life to chance, or to a bolt of lightning, or to the seed of an alien. Racism must be countered. There is no such thing as races. The Bible only talk about one race, the human race. We are all brothers and sisters, cousins with the same Grandfather and Grandmother. At the close of the film, Ben challenges us with an old Jewish proverb. Who will fight the battle for freedom of inquiry, freedom of thought, and academic expression? If not you, then who? If not now, then when? I urge you to fight for freedom, and to take your family and friends to see “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed”. Contact your pastor, and take a group from your church. This film will open the eyes of everyone who sees it.
