I Admire Ben Stein


Maybe you're familiar with his TV show, "Win Ben Stein's Money." Or perhaps his face rings a bell from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."  Or maybe you've read his book, particularly THE VIEW FROM SUNSET BOULEVARD (which I highly recommend), or maybe you've read one of his columns. 

In any case, Ben Stein is a brilliant man who dares to speak the truth. He's Jewish, he believes in God, and he upholds traditional values.  Apparently he has a movie coming out this spring, and the trailer is well worth your time.  You can view a teaser/synopsis here

Please watch it.  It's well worth your time.  And after you watch it, remember that Hitler was greatly influenced by Darwin--if you believe in evolution and the improvement of the species, it's only a small step to advocating eugenics and the concept of a "master race."  When you don't believe that each man, woman, and child is created in the image of God, it's easy to consign a certain race, the infirm, and the unborn to the trash heap. 

It's frightening to think that scientists and researchers who believe in intelligent design are being silenced in the marketplace of ideas.  What happened to true intellectual freedom?

Angie, I wrote a blog about this movie a couple of months ago. I think it sounds excellent and hope I get to see it without having to wait for DVD.

That looks powerful. I hope to see it in the theater, though typically, I save documentaries for home.

We have been watching Star Trek Voyager and recently I watched the original Planet of the Apes. It always comes down to the dogmatic, narrow minded defenders of doctrine persecuting the open minded, enlightened scientists.
Satan is such a liar.

I LOVE Ben Stein. I have seen him in person as well as many times on FOX News. This documentary is definitely a must-see! And, like Robin, I hope it will be shown publicly in regular movie houses before goin to DVD. Not highly likely, but we can pray, can't we? Thx for bringing this to our attention, Angie! Clyde

Someone sent me a link to a trailer and when I saw Ben Stein I thought it was a joke -not a real trailer - so I turned it off. I was surprised considering who had sent it to me- I will have to go and watch it now!

Its days like this that I am glad I read your blog
