    Re: “Lies, damned lies and "intelligent design'

    I did and I found that it did a good job of showing both sides of the academic lines. You're wrong, webgirl. There is no "other side" to the ID issue, a fact that the film completely obscures. No reputable, peer-reviewed scientist has yet put forth any kind of scientific defense of ID. There simply is no controversy about evolution in scientific circles. Ben Stein is lying to you. I think that the most comment came from Dr. Dawkins himself when he said that he believed that life on Earth was "seeded" from an advanced, intelligent society. Now isn't that interesting? An evolutionist who admitted that he believed in intelligent design? And now you're lying. Dawkins admits it's within the realm of possibility that aliens could have seeded Earth with the most basic form of life... but -- he goes on to say -- those aliens would themselves have had to have been the products of natural evolution. And in any event, Dawkins is talking about the origin of life on Earth, NOT the development of life after that point, which is ALL the theory of evolution is concerned with. Evolution does NOT even pretend to cover the origin of life on Earth. And once again, Stein is confusing the issue by pretending that evolution has anything to do with that area. Here, once again, is the insidiousness of Stein and *Expelled*: he misleads the ignorant for his own purposes, which I'm not even sure we can discern from the film. Why does Stein believe it's better to lie about these things?
