Life is a journey - this is mine.

Most have probably heard of the Ben Stein movie "Expelled - No Intelligence Allowed." I plan to see the movie after it's released on April 18th. My expectations for the film are low, however. I'm expecting a Michael Moore-ish over-dramatization of facts, and a one-sided depiction of events. That said, I'm looking forward to the film and the discussion it will spark.

I found the recent story about Richard Dawkins getting in to see the film in Minnesota pretty funny, and I particularly found this guy's self-described pre-emptive strike against the creationist propaganda that the film is espousing. He says the film contains "Dishonest tactics through and through," and yet in his very next sentence says: "I haven't seen the movie yet because it's not out." Uhm, and you consider yourself qualified to speak on the content of the film? Oh you've heard Ben Stein talk about the film. I see. Who exactly is being dishonest here? The film might be, but you have no real way of knowing it, do ya Skippy. You most definitely are.

At any rate, it'll be interesting to see what happens when it opens. It'll probably fade into oblivion quickly after its release.

Check out the trailer:
