Has everyone been following the uproar on the internets over the soon-to-be-released quasi-documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed
? If you haven't, in brief this is a movie hosted by conservative actor Ben Stein that accuses "big science" of persecuting teachers who wish to teach alternate theories of evolution (ie intelligent design). It's a full on battle out there, but someone has hit on a great idea:
The Atheist Ethicist has come up with the notion of buying Truth Tickets
to offset the possible revenues of this movie. Simply put, make a donation to the National Center for Science Education
instead of spending money to see the ID propaganda film. I'm going to buy enough Truth Tickets to cover the few ID believers I know, I hope you will consider doing the same.
If you are interested in the conversations about the movie , here are a couple of links to get you started:
