Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed behind the scenes gags

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.

    At that time, I thought that this film really provided good scientific evidence for the "intelligent design theory", especially the connection between the evolution theory and the Nazi Holocaust was a fatal blow to its moral consciousness (yes, yes, This is what a Darwinian world of the lawless world that abandons the Creator's standard will become). Yet all this so-called scientific evidence and social-historical facts are nothing more than propaganda that has been carefully cobbled together for the revamped Christian creationism. When you have a chance to compare these two scientific theories (evolution theory and "intelligent design theory") more fairly, you will find out how empty, fragile and scientifically unscientific the so-called intelligent design is as a scientific theory The basic explanatory power it should have (see the court documentary "Judgment Day"). In fact it does not deserve to be called a scientific theory at all. There is no discrimination without comparison. Which is true and which is false, which is good and which is evil? Many things are often not what they appear at first glance. The same goes for religion and science. The key is whether one is willing to put aside preconceptions and identify it for himself through rational and empirical evidence.

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed quotes

  • John Polkinghorne: People who tell you, for example, that science tells all you need to know about the world, or what science tells you is all wrong, or science tells us there is no God, those people aren't telling you scientific things. They are saying metaphysical things, and they have to defend their positions for metaphysical reasons.

  • Ben Stein: What if after you died you ran into God, and he says, what have you been doing, Richard? I mean what have you been doing? I've been trying to be nice to you. I gave you a multi-million dollar paycheck, over and over again with your book, and look what you did.

    Richard Dawkins: Bertrand Russell had that point put to him, and he said something like: sir, why did you take such pains to hide yourself?

    Ben Stein: [voice over] But, if the Intelligent Design people are right, he isn't hidden. We may even be able to encounter God through science, if we have the freedom to go there. What could be more intriguing than that?
