I distinctly remember sitting on a bus a few years ago traveling through the English countryside toward Oxford and talking with an Englishmen who delighted in telling me that "the thing that is wrong with you Americans is that you do not care to debate passionately". It was ironic to me as I watched the screening this evening for Ben Stein's Expelled movie, that it was a majority of the Oxford academia that did not care to debate this archaic 149 year old assumption.
This documentary is a must see!! Two thumbs WAY UP!
Ethos claps one hand today because I am appalled by the lack of conversation and debate of this issue in the global education system. Especially the American Education system. Beware the sound of one hand clapping in a world of no debate on this issue.
If phrases such as: "Intellectual Terrorism" and "Deprivileging Of The Human Race" intrigue you, then this movie is for you. However, If a world where dogs are Gods and humans have no hope of meaning is more your "cup 'o tea", then this movie probably won't interest you.
