Expelled: No Intelligence in theaters!

Last night, John and I went to see the film Expelled. We would highly recommend it does bring up some interesting conversation.

There is a well-done review from the Pulpit Magazine found here.

What I thought the movie did best, was that it began dispelling the myth that in order to believe there was an Intelligent Designer, you have to be a religious fanatic. I have found in my own conversations and mini-debates on the subject, once a person knows you are a Christian, they begin attacking your beliefs as nonsense, rather than the issue at hand.

I think that it's important to see that there are many scientists out there, who are not necessarily religious, who have huge issues with evolution. It almost gives more credence to the subject.

Now, don't expect to take your evolution-believing friend to this movie and have their opinions change by the time you walk out of the theater. I also wouldn't expect a republican to enter a Michael Moore film and be a democrat by the end.

The movie is worth seeing, and I would love to hear your feedback on it!

I look forward to seeing this movie too, for the equipping factor and to clarify.
I just read Lysa T. review over at her blog (Proverbs 31 ministry) if you haven't seen it yet.
Thanks for entering my giveaway, btw.

I took my kids to see this movie the day it came out; we thought it was great.

Like you said - - - it wouldn't move an evolutionist to think otherwise, but it gives the rest of us insight, encouragement, and empathy for those who are 'fighting the fight'.

We saw this the other day. I enjoyed it.
