The producers of the "documentary" feature film Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed (featuring Ben Stein) created a "Leader's Guide," intended to structure debate on the topics raised by the movie. The guide is intended for "leaders" (whomever they might be) to steer the discussion along the movie's talking points - that theory of evolution is being questioned, that the people questioning the "Darwinian orthodoxy" are being singled out and punished, and that teaching evolution leads to abortion, eugenics and genocide.

This article is a point-by-point critique of this Leader's Guide and ultimately the message of this movie.
