Many of the scientists who were interviewed for the soon-to-be-released movie, Expelled, are claiming that the film is an argument for Intelligent Design and against evolution. It appears that the working title for the movie was “Crossroads: the intersection of religion and science.” Some of the people interviewed are claiming that they would have said something different if they had known the true name and subject.
However, I don’t think any of them have seen the movie yet, and the website blog and trailers seem to focus on the treatment of “rebels” with in the science community, especially those who question “Darwinism.”
“People will be stunned to actually find out what elitist scientists proclaim, which is that a large majority of Americans are simpletons who believe in a fairy tale,” said Walt Ruloff, co-executive producer and co-founder of Premise Media, which is producing the film.
He continued to say that his company agreed to take up the film’s production because they “believe the greatest asset of humanity is our freedom to explore and discover truth.”
The film’s original title was Crossroads: The Intersection of Science and Religion, according to U.K.-based The Guardian. The film company said the movie’s title was changed, on the advice of marketing experts.
Here’s what the interviewees are saying:

Then, there’s this and this from Bioethics.net, the blog of the editors and pseudoeditors of the American Journal of Bioethics.
This is great. The Creation\Evolution debate is moving forward into the Main Stream. I even heard it mentioned on The View. For too long, people have been spoon fed Darwinism without questioning the accuracy or existence of any true evidence. I like how Darwin supporters claim 'tons of evidence' and yet in this blog or anywhere no evidence is specifically mentioned. That is because even Darwinists aren't really sure what evidence exists; they're just sure it's out there somewhere, and that's good enough for most of them. Do yourselves a favor, do some research. I'll help. Answer these questions. 1. Where did the space for the universe come from?2. Where did matter come from?3. Where did the laws of the universe come from (gravity, inertia,etc.)?4. How did matter get so perfectly organized?5. Where did the energy come from to do all the organizing?6. When, where, why, and how did life come from non-livingmatter?7. When,where, why, and how did life learn to reproduce itself?8. With what did the first cell capable of sexual reproductionreproduce?If you cannot answer these questions, do not feel bad. No evolutionists can without far reaching and unprovable theories.As much as I enjoy this debate, ultimately the Creationist motivation should not be to win an argument but to help people find God. There is a God who created this universe by supernatural means. He created Mankind in his image. He loves his creation. He gave us the ability to communicate with him and to have a relationship with him. Instead of programming us to obey him, he gave us free will. We are offered salvation from this world as a gift. It isn't something that can be earned. Accept or reject. It's that simple. You don't have to be perfect (no one is). I would encourage anyone who reads this blog to think for yourself. If there is evidence, search it out for yourself.
