Ben Stein is headed back to school.
Best known for his portrayal of the monotone teacher in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," Stein stars in a new film, "Expelled," opening in theaters today.
The full title is "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed"
The film is an expose on the "Darwinian Machine" that has infiltrated public education in America and prevents any alternative views from being introduced to students.
The theory of evolution -- emphasis on theory -- is all that the secular progressives who control the public education agenda in the U.S. allow to be taught in public schools.
"It's a movie that Ferris Bueller would take the day off to go see," says a press release promoting the film. "What freedom-loving student wouldn't be outraged to discover that his high school science teacher is teaching a theory as indisputable fact, and that university professors unmercifully crush any fellow scientists who dare question the prevailing system of belief?"
Based on the trailer alone, Stein, a lawyer, economist, former presidential speechwriter, author and social commentator, provides a far more entertaining take on the debate over intelligent design vs. Darwinism than some recent documentaries.
Let's face it, Ben Stein is a lot more interesting to watch than Al Gore or Michael Moore.
"Big Science in this area of biology has lost its way," says Stein. "Scientists are supposed to be allowed to follow the evidence wherever it may lead, no matter what the implications are. Freedom of inquiry has been greatly compromised, and this is not only anti-American, it's anti-science. Its anti-the whole concept of learning."
"Expelled" reveals that educators and scientists are being ridiculed, denied tenure and even fired in some cases for the fact that they believe there is evidence of "design" in nature, challenging the idea that life is a result of random chance.
