This is a very controversial film. Some media claimed that "it made the creation theory that once made waves in the United States greatly face, and made Darwin's theory of evolution suffer a cold winter", and some scientists angrily rebuked: "This is a very, very fake, boring and lack of art work." These controversies are due to on the content of the documentary. This film touches on a very sensitive topic: the debate between "Darwin's theory of evolution" and "Intelligence design theory". In fact, American documentary directors have always had a good tradition of "spiking the hornet's nest", Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 911", Errol Morris' "Standard Procedure". whichever "hornet's nest" is more from this film It is big, but the reason why this film can be widely concerned is that the director Nathan Frankowski does not go to shoot the victims after stabbing the "hornet's nest", but cares about the "hornet" - he expresses a strong expression in the film The tendency to support "Intelligence Design Theory".
The debate between " Darwin's theory of evolution " and "Intelligence design theory" is not so fun. In the United States, the idea of ​​the theory of evolution has been opposed by Christians, and the struggle often rises to the height of the law. In 1925, the famous "Scopes Monkey Case" occurred in Tennessee. The judge found Scopes guilty of teaching theory of evolution in science class; in 1967, the Supreme Court ruled that the "anti-theory of evolution law" in Arkansas was unconstitutional ; In 1987, the Supreme Court ruled that Louisiana's law on providing "scientific creationism" in schools with the same class hours as the theory of evolution was unconstitutional. After the 1990s, Intelligence Design Theory gradually came to the forefront of American society, The Seattle-based private think tank, the Discovery Institute, is the most powerful driving institution. Although many media have pointed out that Intelligence design theory is nothing more than a repackage of creation theory with some scientific words, but in the United States, it has a huge market. To date, 14 states have no objection to Intelligence design theory entering the classroom. The results of the Harris poll showed that only 22% of people believed that humans evolved from earlier species; there were no more people who agreed with "Darwin's theory of evolution is a scientific theory that has been demonstrated". With its $3.1 million premiere box office revenue, "Expulsion Theory of Evolution" successfully ranked No. 9 in the weekend North American box office rankings. It is not as simple as "there are arguments, there are gimmicks", and the huge mass base of "Intelligence Design Theory" cannot be ignore. Of course, it is not ruled out that there are "theory of evolution" supporters who come in to pick the wrong one.
This film is Nathan Frankusky's first film as director, having previously assisted David L. Cunningham in "After." and in "The Road to 9" /11 Road" (The Path to 9/11) as assistant director. The film's narrator, Ben Stein, is a well-known TV actor who was nominated for four Emmys for "Win Ben Stein's Money" and shared an Emmy in 1997 with Jimmy Comiller. Playing the college student is the fledgling Jason Collett, and it remains to be seen that there is not much drama.

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed quotes

  • David Berlinski: It'd be nice to see the scientific establishment lose some of its prestige and power. It'd be nice to see other questions being opened up. Above all, it'd be nice to have a real spirit of self-criticism penetrating the sciences.

  • Alister McGrath: Richard Dawkins has a charming, and very I think interesting view of the relationship between science and religion. They're at war with each other. And in the end, one's got to win. And it's going to be science. It's a very naive view. It's based on a complete historical misrepresentation of the way science and religion has been directed. Dawkins seems to think that scientific description is an anti-religious argument. Describing how something happens scientifically, somehow explains it away. It doesn't. But the questions of purpose, intentionality, the question why, still remain there on the table.
