Most prevalent reaction to Expelled: anger


Why can’t we follow WHERE the EVIDENCE leads????

Some people loved the movie, some hated it. Sure it was propaganda, but it was fighting for something worth fighting for. It angers me how close-minded people are. The reaction from “big science” has not been good since the release of Expelled. Many are trying to sue Expelled, some are just firing away their propaganda agianst the movie and others are not even willing to see the movie or talk about the REAL ISSUES in a realistic, justly manner.
I do understand why some would want to sue “expelled” because of the whole “Crossroads” situation and some of the content being “out of context” but those are NOT the REAL issues.

The REAL action needs to be happening in institutions. Institutions that stress and say they view academic freedom need to step up to the plate and investigate the issue, they need to decide how “free” they really are. they need to open up to FACTS instead of being dead to the TRUTH and letting big science have their way.

I was and still am anger about closed minds in institutions.
There is a sick cycle happening big science leaders are pushing out any ideas that go agianst what THEY believe. Ironic? How free is that? People should be able to research and discuss ALL aspects and theories and not be limited by whoever is in the dictating the leadership positions of the institutions. the whole point of learning is to see the FACTS and make a decision for yourself, not being forced into ONE belief system!

Scientists are fatally proud of their reliance on peer-review to ensure that only good science gets funded and published. Yet it has been shown that peer review does not increase the quality of studies11,12 and because the anonymous reviewers generally represent established ideas it is an effective way to suppress innovation 13,14 .

Censorship is most effective when the censor’s hand is invisible. Modern science has developed an effective hierarchy for disseminating ‘acceptable’ information and, perhaps more importantly, for excluding work that threatens mainstream scientists and the governments and industries that fund them. Luckily, there are still publications and websites outside this web of self-censorship. You should take advantage of this information, use it to formulate your own opinions, and discuss them with friends, family and colleagues. Small donations of your time and money can make a tremendous difference to the world’s excluded scientists.

  1. “Why can’t we follow WHERE the EVIDENCE leads????”If I may ask; what is the evidence for Intelligent Design?What are the theories behind Intelligent Design?What predictions does Intelligent Design make that might verify its truth?How can Intelligent Design be proven wrong (falsifiability is an important part of any scientific idea)?The fact is, there is no credible evidence for Intelligent Design. Common arguments such as Irreducible Complexity and Specific Complexity have been refuted over and over again. The theory of Intelligent Design is basically “God did it”. Sure, ID proponents generally will not admit this to the general public but they certainly do believe that the designer is their God.Intelligent Design makes no predictions that could be used to verify it and advance science.Intelligent Design is an idea that has no place in science because it is not scientific. It is a useless theory (if one can even call it a theory) whose purpose is simply to support religion by attempting to undermine evolution which gives a logical and rational explanation for the diversity of life that does not include a god of any sort.Please read < HREF="http://www.expelledexposed.com/" REL="nofollow">http://www.expelledexposed.com/<> for more information about the so-called expelled scientists and teachers. You will find that they were treated fairly and justly and many of their claims are outright lies.

  2. Thanks for your comment. My biggest question is this: If professors do not have the right to study intelligent design, how will we ever legitimately study Intelligent Design (ID) and ever come up with “evidence?” My question is why does it matter if there is not any evidence? If there is not any evidence why do you care if people study it or not? The point of my post is that I am angry about the close-mindedness and elite “big science” that does not even allow for study of ID. In all seriousness I am not an ID proponent. I do not believe in it at all. But I want to know what it is about. I want everyone to have the right and freedom in America to study ID freely, just as they should have the right to study evolution or Creationism or whatever. You say that “there is no credible evidence for Intelligent Design.” Well that is fine, why though should people be kicked out of a job for mentioning ID? That is my question.I am ticked because there are plenty of false lies that Universities are teaching as facts, and people are free to learn about them! For example, theories in social sciences like psychology and sociology. Everyone learns about them and yet everyone studies them. They are even told how these theories are flawed and sometimes these theories are supported with evidence. The point is both sides of the story are presented and professors and students are free to learn about them….but ID on the other hand is not allowed. My heart is crying out about academic freedom! Please do not be so close-minded and say that because there is no credible evidence that no one should be allowed to learn about it, because that is elitist and close-minded. This is exactly why I posted in the first place.
