Ben Stein's Controversial Film Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed Tops the Blogosphere

According to Technoranati's BlogPulse which surveys the hottest topics and sites in the world of blogs, a site featuring Ben Stein's controversial new film Expelled is the #1 blog on the net.

The web traffic spiked when P.Z. Meyers, a biology professor at the University of Minnesota, Morris, attempted to sneak into a private, invitation-only screening of Ben Stein's highly controversial upcoming movie, EXPELLED: No Intelligence Allowed ( But Myers, who is an outspoken atheist and author of the science blog "Pharyngula" got caught and has used his blog to bitterly complain about not being allowed to see the film before its release.

Myers, who was interviewed in Expelled, has apparently been asking supporters to sneak into the private screenings which are being conducted by marketing company Motive Entertainment, which handled grassroots marketing for blockbusters The Passion of the Christ and Chronicles of Narnia for various leaders as part of the grass roots marketing of the film.

Ben Stein's Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed opens nationwide on April 18th.
