|RUSH: Ben Stein has a new movie out. He brought it by my house Friday afternoon to screen it for me. It's called Expelled.
It is powerful. It is fabulous. And here's the premise of
his movie. The premise is that Darwinism has taken root, taken
hold at every major intellectual institution around the world in
Western Society, from Great Britain to the United States, you name
it. Darwinism, of course, does not permit for the existence of a
supreme being, a higher power, or a God. His interviews with some
of the professors who espouse Darwinism are literally shocking.
The condescension and the arrogance these people have, they will
readily admit that Darwinism and evolution do not explain how life
began. One of these professors said it might have been that a
hyper-intelligence from another planet came here and started our
race. This from some professor either in the UK, I forget where
it was, but can't be God. These people are so threatened by the
existence of God, they will not permit intelligent design to be
discussed. Professors have been fired, blackballed, and prevented from
working who have deigned to try to combine the whole concept of
evolution with intelligent design.
Ben Stein's new movie
is going to open to a thousand screens pretty soon, it's not out there
yet. It's called Expelled. But the point of it is that
these people on the left are just scared to death of God. It
threatens everything. We, on the other hand, recognize that our
greatness, who we are, our potential, our ambition, our desire, comes
from God, and as part of our Creation, this natural yearning to be free
and to practice liberty. That is how we think this country came
to be great. It is how we think this country will continue to be
great and to grow.
