Expelled purports to document
- that Big Science is dominated by Darwinists who know that evolutionary theory is not supported by scientific evidence, so it can only be supported by purging anyone who believes in God and a created universe, and
- that, on the other hand, those who are challenging the forcefully imposed Darwinist orthodoxy are asking only for “both sides” of “the controversy” to be heard — not for the establishment of Creationism through suppression of evolutionary biology.
A previous post here linked to a post by Blake Stacey, which compiles examples of people being penalized for being truthful about evolutionary biology — contrary to the second contention above.
In earlier posts, I also mentioned outspoken believers in God and divine creation who are not penalized in any way for expressing their beliefs, while continuing in their positions teaching science and doing real scientific research, but I haven’t provided a lot of specifics and examples.
Such examples are provided now by Chris Heard, Associate Professor of Religion at Pepperdine University, in a post on his Higgaion blog. Heard not only provides these examples, but provides transcribed excerpts of a conversation between Scientific American staff and Mark Mathis, associate producer of Expelled, in which Mathis basically explains that these examples were excluded from the film because inclusion of this evidence against the film’s major argument “would have confused the film unnecessarily.”
In other words, the film is a lie, and the film-makers know it.
