Is Expelled not, therefore, a closed issue? Not if the folk at Premier Christian Media (you may have come across their Premier Christian Radio station before) can help it. They've organised a screening and debate (billed as the UK premiere, which, given the fact that it was shown at the Cambridge Film Festival, it isn't) to be held at Imperial College, London on Saturday 27 February:
"Justin Brierley, presenter of Premier's faith debate show "Unbelievable?", will be your host for the day, and there will be representatives from both the Christian and Secular arenas who will be debating EXPELLED after the screening. Guest speakers include Dr. Alastair Noble (Former Inspector of Schools) and Dr. Vij Sodera (Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons) who advocate intelligent design and Prof. Keith Fox (Biology, Southampton University) and Prof. Thomas Dixon (History of Science, Queen Mary London University) who advocate Darwinian Evolution."You have to love the idea of "advocating" evolution, don't you? Reminds of the time I spent advocating gravity a few years ago. Anyway, I thought the debate was worth mentioning in case any of you fancied going along. No doubt the "advocates" of evolution could use some support in the audience, although you would have to pay £5 which, as a fee for seeing Expelled, is at least £5 too much.
