Now, I try to be objective when I'm watching documentaries because I know that they are often meant to get you to lean in a certain direction of thought. I went to a workshop once about how to critically watch a documentary, and because of what I learned there, I try to step back and notice the music, lighting, how the facts are presented, etc. if the documentary subject has a high emotional or political flavor to it. With that said, I figured that this documentary would be at least as conservative as I am, but I wanted to make sure that I paid attention to the other side of the argument and didn't get swept away in "Yeah! You tell 'em, Mr. Stein!"
If you haven't seen this movie or know what it's about, it deals with the taboo subject of intelligent design in the science world. It discusses the danger of teaching Darwinism without the freedom of teaching Intelligent Design in schools -and the scientific validity of latter having just as much (if not more) validity than the former. I was fascinated with the explanations of holes in Darwinistic theory on one side and the brutal attack on Intelligent Design on the other (which most of us have witnessed in the real world). The movie starts with images of the Berlin Wall going up and really encompasses the massive importance of freedom of thought and freedom of the exchange of ideas.
Okay, I'm finding myself wanting to go on and on about it, but I think it's best that you just watch it if you get the opportunity. Then, let's chat. I still believe what I believe with my whole heart, but another facet has been added to strengthen it, and it's strangely scientific.
