Opening Weekend for “Expelled”
Well – after much praise and (perhaps) much more criticism, “EXPELLED” opened in theaters (c. 1000) throughout USA. Here is how it did at the box office:
“Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed,” a rare documentary opening in wide release, debuted at No. 9 with $3.1 million. Released by Rocky Mountain Pictures, the film features Ben Stein as he challenges Darwinian theories that prevail in academic circles and suggests that life could have emerged through intelligent design.”
Is this good? Is it bad? I do not know. But it looks like quite a few people will get to see it.
In any case – it will most likely generate some continued debate. Let’s hope this will be civilized and will contribute toward a better understanding of what is false and what is true in all camps. For none of the camps owns the “truth,” (in spite of the rhetoric) especially since many don’t believe that such a thing exists in the first place🙂
