I have been following for some time now the build up to the release of a purported "documentary" about how a recently contrived alternative "theory" of the rise of life on earth should somehow be given equal treatment in schools. The problem with "Intelligent Design" is that it suggests that many constructs of biology are so complicated that they could only have been placed by a "creator". Additionally, these ID proponents want this taught in science classes as an alternative to the Theory of Evolution as originally described by Charles Darwin. It's a problem because since ID claims a supernatural origin to life on earth, it can't be proven by scientific means. It is therefore not science.

But that hasn't stopped certain ID proponents from doing all they can, including misleading, lying and deceiving to put their little theory in front of as many gullible people as they can. They made their little movie under false pretenses, then carefully controlled (or tried to, with hilarious complications) who was able to view the pre-release version of the movie. Now, the producers are releasing the movie theatrically, but only in areas in which they know they will find favorable audiences.

Now I'm not going to tell you to not see the movie, since I haven't seen it myself (nor do I plan to). You will also notice that I avoided giving you the title of the movie. But I have included a link below to a website with more information about the movie, and exactly what the producers did to bring this abortion to the screen. Warning: If you liked Ben Stein for his eyedrop commercials, you're going to be very disappointed.
