The life of Charles Darwin is the subject of a new film called Creation which premieres today at the Toronto International Film Festival.
From the TIFF website:
In Creation the battleground is a man’s heart. Torn between his love for his deeply religious wife and his own growing belief in a world where God has no place, Darwin finds himself caught in a struggle between faith and reason, love and truth.
No, I will not be attending either incognito nor as myself. I am eager, though, to hear what people think about it. If you happen to have seen it, take some time to leave a comment. If not, give a shout out about what you think will be the reaction when it is released to the general public.
Further Reflections on a Day Among Atheists at the Creation Museum
Standing in line for our tickets, I noticed him right away. At first all I really noticed were the words “heaven” and “NOT,” and at that glance figured is was a slam against the idea of an afterlife and pearly gates in the sky somewhere over the rainbow. Then I became quite surprised: this particular atheist sported excellent Christian theology! Later when I saw him inside the museum noticed what was written on the back:
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this NOT from yourselves, it is the gift of God— NOT by works, so that no one can boast.
The irony was amazing! Here I was, a Christian passing as an atheist, and I end up running into an atheist who decided to wear perfect Christian theology on his shirt.
