I have seen it twice in screenings, and once you watch it you will understand why NeoDarwinists are pulling out all the stops to keep you from seeing it. Additionally, the flagrant, unapologetic, and historically bizarre attempt to attribute the Holocaust to evolutionary theory goes beyond being insulting, vaporizing the movie's last shred of integrity. The film exposes the NeoDarwinist The Intelligent Design - NeoDarwinist debate has long been viewed as an argument between science and religion. There is no contradiction there.

I'm just a guy who knows BS when he sees it. I'm guessing that most of the votes on the "1" side are from people who haven't even seen the film. Not to mention blatantly stealing the cell animation without proper attribution, banning PZ Meyers from the prescreening, and insinuating that Richard Dawkins believes in aliens.

Much like the reviews and viewer opinions of Michael Moore's psuedo-documentaries or Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" are influenced by whether the person in question agrees with the views espoused in those films, that will be the situation here in even more stark relief. Both in its willful refusal to work through the reasoning behind the science it attacks and its willful refusal to investigate the 'victims' it profiles, the movie is pure propaganda. The logical conclusion from that is that due to the idea of moral relativism ("well, maybe that was considered bad 50 years ago but times have changed") is that eventually we could go beyond abortion and voluntary euthanasia to selecting people to be euthanized "for the good of mankind/the human race/our country" with no guilt of sense of wrongdoing.

(Rocky Mountain Pictures), People don't like admitting they are wrong that's why the ratings are so low. A couple of the eventual items that will be highlighted in the movie are hinted at with the opening credits, which are made up of what looks like old archival footage from World War II.

Ben Stein was the absolute wrong choice for narrator, not because of his nasally voice and annoying patterns of speech, but due to his well known bias for intelligent design.

Not only did Hitler dedicate his deeds to God (ie: the "intelligent designer"), but he rejected the theory of evolution and the idea that humans are animals (if he can't accept that Jews and non-Jews are biologically related, why would he believe humans and chimps are?)
