    That’s a complicated question. I’m not a good movie reviewer, so here’s one:

    The movie was not well made. It was hamfisted. But it has a good point worth considering after you get done rolling your eyes at the propagandistic techniques. Despite the protests of establishment apologists who have “the real story” (really, we called ISU ourselves and they said they didn’t fire him over ID!) I do believe that ID scientists are being bullied out of universities and that story needs to be told.

    I thought the most effective portions were when we got to hear the Darwinists talk at length. The dripping disdain and overcompensating condescension merely needs to be seen to be disbelieved.

    Bottom line (from me, not the movie): Evolution is unable to explain the problem of irreducible complexity and will fail as a Theory of Everything and you won’t have to wait until heaven to see it. Eat healthy and exercise and we’ll dance on its grave together in 10-20 years.

    ah-ha…

    The passion this issue raises is startling to me. Although I enjoyed reading some of the articles, the comments were simply too snarky for me to endure more than a handful of them.
