No Intelligence AllowedDVD - 2008
Ben Stein travels the world on a quest to learn an awe-inspiring truth - that educators and scientists are being ridiculed, denied tenure, and even fired for merely believing that there might be evidence of 'design' in nature, and that perhaps life is not the result of accidental, random chance, but of intelligent design.

David Berlinski: It'd be nice to see the scientific establishment lose some of its prestige and power. It'd be nice to see other questions being opened up. Above all, it'd be nice to have a real spirit of self-criticism penetrating the sciences.
Alister McGrath: Richard Dawkins has a charming, and very I think interesting view of the relationship between science and religion. They're at war with each other. And in the end, one's got to win. And it's going to be science. It's a very naive view. It's based on a complete historical misrepresentation of the way science and religion has been directed. Dawkins seems to think that scientific description is an anti-religious argument. Describing how something happens scientifically, somehow explains it away. It doesn't. But the questions of purpose, intentionality, the question why, still remain there on the table.
John Polkinghorne: People who tell you, for example, that science tells all you need to know about the world, or what science tells you is all wrong, or science tells us there is no God, those people aren't telling you scientific things. They are saying metaphysical things, and they have to defend their positions for metaphysical reasons.
Ben Stein: What if after you died you ran into God, and he says, what have you been doing, Richard? [...] I gave you a multi-million dollar paycheck, over and over again with your book, and look what you did.
Richard Dawkins: Bertrand Russell had that point put to him, and he said something like: Sir, why did you take such pains to hide yourself?
Ben Stein: But, if the Intelligent Design people are right, He isn't hidden. We may even be able to encounter God through science, if we have the freedom to go there. What could be more intriguing than that?
“My way of joking is to tell the truth. That's the funniest joke in the world.” -Muhammad Ali
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” ― Martin Luther King, Jr
“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.” –Thomas Jefferson
