Questioning Darwin

For those Christians who believe their Bible is the word of God, the literal truth, one man is held up as the antichrist, he is Charles Darwin, their reasoning?, for leading millions of Christians astray with a very different account of creation, evolution by natural selection. In this new HBO film we get a look into this fast-growing branch of Christians in America, who have a very hardline, literal and creationist view of the Bible.

Through a selection of interview with Darwin historians, biographers, ministers and creationist Christians, along with letters and writings of Darwin, this documentary attempts to take a balanced look at this 150-year old debate. Creation vs. Evolution.

    So incredibly disturbing and disheartening to watch this! It is a very transparent, one-sided attempt to present the biblical view of creation as somehow viable and discredit Darwin and Natural Selection.

    I feel very sad for the poor people who grasp on to primitive, magical thinking and try desperately to defend it with “documentaries” like this one. I feel especially sad for those who are unwilling or unable to even try to investigate what is behind their clinging to their views, beliefs and opinions.

    The first scene in this film of the children being taught myths as reality literally turned my stomach. I would classify it as intellectual and spiritual abuse. So terriblly painful to see those kids being set up for so much pain and confusion in life.

    The level of stupid in those Creationists should be outlawed. It is staggering just how deluded people can be not to mention, dangerous.
