Ben Stein Wins Intelligent Design Award for ‘Expelled’

Ben Stein’s work in his new controversial movie “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” has earned him praises and now an award from the intelligent design community.

The multi-talented star of his Comedy Central show “Win Ben Stein’s Money,” who is also known for his lead role in the film “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” was named the recipient of the 2008 Phillip E. Johnson Award for Liberty and Truth, an award created to honor one of the founding fathers of the intelligent design movement. Full story:

    These people claim they are motivated more by a concern with free speech than by anti-evolutionism.

    If so, when are they going to make a film about all the teachers fired or intimidated for teaching evolution in high-school biology classes, or who are afraid to bring it up?

    Although no one seems to be counting, there appears to be a far larger number.

    If you do a google search you can find many references to the attempt to stifle free thinking by the the anti-evolution movement. Times have changed and the tables have been turned. Now it is what I call gay science that is stifling free speech.

    No matter which camp the stifling comes from, the motivation is the same; the inability to contend in the free market of ideas.

    I’m sorry if I wasn’t clear. I was referring to the present day. This year. This month.

    Just for the record, what is “gay science”? Science is science, no?

    I was referring to any day or time. The free market of ideas should remain free.

    Gay science is a reference to Friedrich Nietzsche’s “The Gay Science” where he famously stated that God was dead.

    There is a good reason creationism magic and intelligent design creationism magic is not taught in biology classes. Magic is childish nonsense, and it’s not science. Why waste a student’s valuable class time talking about idiotic god-soaked nonsense?

    Some people claim intelligent design magic is science. These people are lying and they know they’re lying. They claim it doesn’t matter who the designer is, but everyone knows the designer is a supernatural magician, also known as god. It’s not appropriate to talk about sky fairies in a science class. This should be obvious but some people are too bloody stupid to understand anything.

    When have I ever suggested teaching intelligent design in science class? Again, you seem incapable of contending in the free market of ideas. I love your comments because they represent exactly the attitude I’m talking about. No logic, no reason, just silly insults.

    “Magic is childish nonsense”

    Yes; the magic world-view is the world-view we find in children. You might be interested in Spiral Dynamics. Great model of the evolution of world-views.
