    Expelled...A Review...

    I do not think I have seen such a brilliant work since I read Vox Day's 'The Irrational Atheist' (TIA). In fact, they should be bundled together and sold as a set.

    If you believe in God, see this movie. If you don't believe, see it anyway, because the thought of you squirming uncomfortably amuses me a great deal.

    I have read idiotic reviews of it, before I saw it, and frankly, I was ready to write it off. But I still wanted to see it, just because. So my parents took me out for pancakes, and we went to the 1:00pm show. We made a total of five people in the last theatre in the megaplex, waaaaay down the hall.

    And I was riveted from the first frame. Pretty much all I could think about was how much I wanted an opportunity to buy the DVD, so I can watch it again and again. And again. And take notes.

    Ben Stein amused the crap out of me, as I watched him use the techniques of Goebbels and Reifenstahl, and the other Nazis at 60 Minutes, to make his points. Again, and again, and again. Yet, rather than being monotonous, each new scene built on the scene before it, and became part of the foundation for the whole, and in the end, a very complex Chinese Puzzle was solved, and he just turned it around in his hands for a bit, to let us admire it.

    The film could have been made by an atheist, and I still would have sat there at the end, dumbfounded by the artistry of it.

    God did not appear anywhere in the credits, but I'm pretty sure He was a technical adviser on this film, and perhaps even...

    Its Producer.
