    I would have gotten a lot more out of the trailer if it was continuous. It was so jerky, I had to piece together what he was saying and near the end, it was about 'where are we going' what are we here for I think, but after that I could't follow it, just too jerky to understand.

    I think Flock of Dodos was probably a better movie than Expelled will be.

    Where can you find Flock? I went to one site but it seemed to be a year old, claimed there were tv showings, showtime, but couldn't find dates or times.

    I would like to see the trailer in one piece first.

    Kelly, Is this the Ben Stein movie? I saw an ad for it for the first time today. If so, it looks interesting. (I don't go to the sites posted on these forums--wouldn't have a clue how to do so)

    Directly on the main page at the link you gave it says:
    "Big science has expelled smart new ideas from the classroom"

    What do you think that means?

    When I saw it I immediately thought of the court case to do with ID in the US. If that is what it is referring to then my thoughts are:
    Rational people have prevented pseudoscience from being taught as fact in the science classroom.
    I personally have no problem with new ideas or even controversial ones being discussed in the university classroom. I do however object to anything going into lower school text books and science classes that:
    1. Does not have the support of the scientific community.
    2. Is little more than an unproven hypothesis.
    3. Has as its proponents confirmed liars.(as was shown in the court case).

    If you are allowed define science you can limit all discussion with
    respect to almost everything don't you think? I'm going to go see
    the movie.

    Of course you want to see the movie, you want validation.

    I suppose so. But are you claiming that someone has defined science who shouldn't have? Most people use the commonly understood definitions found in dictionaries and encyclopedias. Do you use something else? Did you notice me or anyone else using something else?
    Or do you simply object to my use of the word 'pseudoscience' but don't wish to admit it in the fear that I might back up my statement to your disadvantage?

    I don't care if you use the word pseudosience if you apply it across the
    board to everything thatt it may apply too.
