For more on the impact and box office success of Expelled, see this past article I contributed to Skeptical Inquirer magazine.

    It is not fair to compare Michael Moore and Ben Stein.

Ben Stein’s “Expelled” either is — or is very close to being — the most successful documentary produced by someone other than Michael Moore. “Expelled” did quite well, everything considered.
