I Guess It Is A Hit

The Genesis Movie. Here is a link to a review of the show

It’s very difficult to get a hearing for intelligent design these days, let alone Genesis 1–11. And even if you got a public platform for Genesis, limiting it to a rational discussion of creation in six literal days and a global flood would seem miraculous. But that’s what Compass Cinema pulled off in secular theaters around the country for a one-night film event by Fathom Media. Some towns had to open additional theater space because of the demand. That happened in Littleton Colorado, I know, and in my hometown, a second theater was added. Both filled up, indicating significant interest in the subject.

On Content

The film consists largely of conversations by Del Tackett with leaders in the Biblical creation movement about scientific evidence supporting the historicity of Genesis accounts of Creation and the Flood. The conversations occur at Grand Canyon, in museums and zoos, on a dinosaur dig and other locations. Del is founder of The Truth Project, a popular worldview apologetics course. In 2008, Del was among two dozen Bible scholars who participated in a special scholar’s rafting trip through the Grand Canyon sponsored by Canyon Ministries. I was on that trip and got to know Del, finding him to be a humble, godly, and very intelligent man, an excellent teacher who is genuinely interested in scientific questions. It appears that trip was very stimulating for him and all the other Bible scholars. We all saw profound evidence for the Flood with our own eyes as veteran guide Tom Vail steered us down the river. Details of the evidence were expounded by PhD geologist Andrew Snelling, who is also prominent in the film. Perhaps that trip was a turning point in Del’s thinking to take him beyond mere Biblical apologetics into full embrace of the historical Genesis.

    If you care about the opinion of Intelligent Design people, here’s EvolutionNews feature on a Young Earth Creationist who laments the FALSE DICHOTOMIES of the Genesis Film. He says he’s been misrepresented in his interview in the film. He’s asking them to correct the film before the DVD version.

    Of course, there are far more errors in the Genesis film than just the false dichotomies. If even Young Earth Creationist authorities are unhappy about it, that should make the cultists stop and think—but it won’t.

    Here’s more details about the many silly geology blunders in the film:

    Del Tackett knows nothing of the science—and he made no effort to consult a variety of evangelical scientists to collect various positions on these topics. It is just a one-sided propaganda film. The AIG type of viewpoint is not the only way to read Genesis.

      I know very little about the film and I am not a fan of intelligent design and their openness to alternative creators etc.

      There is God’s way and his way doe snot allow for evolutionary thought to enter in, no matter the variety.

        God’s way also doesn’t allow for lying. False dichotomies are dishonest presentations.

          The question is–a person who disagrees with secular science is not necessarily lying. Secular science is not a God approved authority nor does it trump his word.

          where in scriptures do both God and Jesus give permission to take science over their word?
