I haven't seen it, though the deliberate double entendre of that title alone suggests a not so objective view.Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed with Ben Stein, which discussed the virulent and vitriol-laden debate over Evolution vs. Intelligent Design
The problem I have with Creationists (or those I encountered) is that they do not talk about the possibility of a higher mind behind the universe as we know it (i.e. starting with the big bang), but rather about how Genesis is an accurate description and people lived next to dinosaurs. Pulling lowly tricks to confuse people with "logic" like "Science only has theories! Theory means it must be vague! No facts at all! Just as valid as any belief!".
And what is worse, it even works to basically stall the discussion on such a level. Even though anyone with a mediocre education should know that in science, a theory is formulated to best describe what was observed in thousands of facts.
They obviously and deliberately aim at the masses'... stupidity may be too harsh a word. But not at a honest discussion, in spite of all the "scientific" polish they put on.
Yet free-agency, as in having a soul instead of a predeterminded/chaotic system of neurons, requires exactly that.As for "things like heaven, hell and non-material influences that actively direct your actions in spite of overwhelming eveidence against them," the fact of the matter is that Christianity teaches the concept of free-agency, where we make our own decisions. God doesn't "directly influence" everything we do.
OT, but that's basically what modern neuroscience comes down to today, because the rest is known: Are the smallest electronic processes that trigger decisions clearly determinded by cause and effect ("cause" being any number of circumstances), are random processes involved, or can some force (soul) push them one way or another without being material itself?
The latter is what was proposed by a christian cleric. Though he had little to say to back it up except that it would have to be that way in order for christian beliefs to remain a possibility.
