SPCS commends film commencing 8.30 p.m. Thursday 17 December 2009, Paramount Theatre, Courtney Place, Wellington.
The new American movie Expelled – No Intelligence Allowed, directed by Nathan Frankowshi and hosted by Ben Stein, currently on its theatrical release in NZ, highlights a fundamental problem that is inherent in the NZ Science curriculum. In the section titled “Making sense of the Living world” careful analysis reveals that Neo Darwinist Theory (i.e. Molecules-to-Man Evolution via natural selection) is the sole basis allowed for all scientific investigation. The other leading origins theory – Intelligent Design – doesn’t get a mention. Therefore students are being prevented from engaging in the controversial and exciting debate on the competing ideas about the origins of life. What they are receiving in their life sciences education amounts to a large dose of philosophical indoctrination into scientific naturalism – read atheism. God has indeed been “expelled” or censored out of the NZ Science curriculum. Will our National Anthem of “God Defend New Zealand” be next to be ‘expelled’ from our ‘enlightened’ secular culture?
