Ben Stein's Expelled

This weekend we attempted to see "Baby Mama" with some friends, but when we walked into the theater the only area with four seats was the front row. The designer of this Mega-plex decided that people who sit in the first row must like it close. The angle was so sharp that in order to see you had to lay on the floor and rest your head on the seat.

A few minutes in and we decided to see another movie. Our options were limited so we landed on the documentary called "Expelled" We were pleasantly surprised. This is Ben Stein's expose on the unfair treatment of scientists who think intelligent design has validity. Apparently many are being black balled from the scientific community, and some have been outright fired for their positions.

My favorite part of this movie is an interview that takes place between Ben Stein and professing atheist, Richard Dawkins. I don't want to spoil the movie for any of you, but there was enough humor and irony in this movie to make it worth recommending here.
