When an outlet like FOX News says this movie sucks...
It's gotta be bad.
quote:Directed by one Nathan Frankowski, "Expelled" is a sloppy, all-over-the-place, poorly made (and not just a little boring) "expose" of the scientific community. Itâ€™s not very exciting. But it does show that Stein, whoâ€™s carved out a career selling eye drops in commercials and amusing us on sitcoms, is either completely nuts or so avaricious that heâ€™s abandoned all good sense to make a buck.
Freedom of speach is a right we all enjoy and it really is not fair to be treated unfairly (especially at work) because of your beliefs.
Then you have the wrong idea of what Freedom of Speech really is.
It is your protection against the government throwing your butt in jail for speaking your mind and even that is limited (see SCOTUS in Brandenburg v Ohio).
Your Freedom of Speech should not, cannot and will not protect you from society’s wrath for saying something stupid.
Sternberg not only said some very stupid things for a biologist, he engaged in a subterfuge of the journal for whom he was supposed to be working and he perpetrated a fraud upon the discipline of the scientific method. He deserved every affront he received from his peers and colleagues at the Smithsonian and he deserves every affront he will receive from scientists everywhere wherever he goes from now on.
