I like Ben Stein. From his dead-pan role in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” to his crazy game show, “Win Ben Stein’s Money”. I never knew that he had been a political speech writer, nor a social activist, nor did I have any idea that he cared so deeply about the current debate over Evolution v. Creation.
Let me preface this by saying that I hold a Theistic Evolution point of view. Certainly, as an Orthodox Christian I believe that we, and all of creation are fashioned by God, by Jesus Christ, who is “of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made”.
I do however accept the idea that change has occurred over eons of time, and that God has enabled and directed that change. Not fish to monkey to man mind you, but changes within species, adaptations to environment and other conditioning factors, yes.
I’m not asking “anyone” (nudge nudge, wink wink) to agree with me here, rather I wanted to give some further exposure to Steins ambitious and rather risky new film, “Expelled”
Take a look at the trailer:

It seems Stein can be serious after all.
