We tried to ignore this, but the Retard-o-tron™ wouldn’t stop screeching, so we have to bring it to your attention. It was the top story today at the website of WorldNetDaily (WND) — thus the jolly buffoon logo above this post.
WND’s headline is Watch evolutionary theory crumble – in 3D! Incredible! Irresistible! Let’s get right to it. WND says, with a touch of bold font added by us:
Coming soon to a theater near you: a depiction of the Bible’s creation account so lifelike, so real … you could actually believe it.
That is going to make evolution crumble? We have to read more:
“Genesis 3D,” a technologically ambitious project of Sevenfold Films and Creation Today, is in development now, promising to be “the first, 3D, Christian movie about the very beginning of the Bible.”
Who are those film makers? Here’s the website of Sevenfold Films. It doesn’t tell us anything. And this is Creation Today. They describe themselves as: “a leading Christian-apologetics ministry, defending the literal interpretation of the Genesis creation account from the theory of evolution.” Their president is Eric Hovind, son of the currently-imprisoned Kent Hovind. Let’s read on from the WND story:
Sneak peeks and scenes from the film are already drawing awe-struck praise.
Creationists are always awe-struck. WND then gives us some examples of the praise the film has received:
“It’s like a time machine,” claimed Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis. “It takes you back in history as if you were there.” “I was blown away, the graphics are stunning,” said evangelist and author Ray Comfort.
Wow — if those guys are impressed, this must be a fantastic film! We continue:
Eric Hovind, president of Creation Today and executive producer of “Genesis 3D,” told WND, “This project is made by Christians, funded by Christians, for the entire world to witness the truth of the creation week in a visual experience that has never been possible before today’s modern technology.”
Ah, now we get it. When they make their movie about Genesis, evolution will crumble — just as WND’s headline promises. Of course! That’s the way to do it. Here’s more:
“By mixing the visual beauty of the creation in 3D with the information to answer skeptical questions, undoubtedly audiences will leave with an incentive to accept the truth of the Bible,” he [Hovind] added. “And for those who are already believers, they will have their faith fortified and strengthened considerably.”
There’s a trailer embedded in the WND article. We watched it. It’s not from the movie, it’s the movie-makers making a pitch for money. Moving along, WND says:
“This is one of the most exciting movie projects I know about,” added Joseph Farah, CEO and editor of WND.com. “It’s a game changer!”
We’re impressed — the head of WND himself is supporting this evolution-crumbling film. We’re skipping the rest of the article because it’s only more puffery about the project and additional begging for funds. Well, why not? It’s certainly a worthy endeavor.
However, it’s unlikely that the people putting this thing together are gong to actually make evolution crumble. We doubt that all of those geniuses together could figure out how to change a roll of toilet paper. But who knows? If this film lives up to its promise, it could bring Darwin down.
