Don't leave a space for Oscar on the mantlepiece, Eric

The latest piece of nonsense from Ken Ham attacks American Atheists for attacking a 3-D film about creation.

As we have come to expect from most atheists, they are already against a message before they even see and hear it! That’s because they have decided that no matter what evidence is before them and no matter what someone argues, if it has its basis in the Bible, it’s wrong regardless!

Well, yes. But only because anybody who reads the Bible and think it reflects reality is an idiot.

We saw an example of this again last week. Good friend of AiG Eric Hovind and his ministry are producing a 3D movie depicting Genesis. The Christian Post reported on this movie and quoted the president of the American Atheists as he commented on the movie’s successful fundraising campaign:

People should be free to make movies on any subject. That’s why for every ‘Godfather’, there’s a ‘Freddie Got Fingered’; for every ‘Avatar’, there’s a new Underworld movie. Good and bad films are released all the time. If Eric Hovind wants to waste money on a 3-D movie instead of doing supposed Christian things like caring for the sick, the hungry, or the impoverished, that just makes him less of a true Christian. At the same time, people are perfectly entitled to watch ‘Grown Ups’ rather than ‘Lincoln’ if they so choose. Or watch both (variety being the spice of life).

Secular museums and documentaries (and other films) spend large sums of money to make flashy movies and exhibits—but that’s OK as long as they teach atheism, evolution, and millions of years as fact! But, if Christians use the latest technology to produce first-class museum exhibits and a startling movie to teach people the truth of God’s Word, well, that’s not OK for atheists because they have already decided Christianity is false.

I can’t actually think of a recent movie that teaches atheism, evolution or ‘millions of years’ (whatever that may mean in movie terms - imagine spending millions of years sitting in the same cinema seat). There was the recent Will Smith movie ‘After Earth’, but that seemed to misrepresent the concept of evolution as much as Ken Ham does. Or there is the forthcoming Thor movie, but when the main character is a Norse God, that hardly promotes atheism. On the other hand, we have the forthcoming Noah movie, which will probably not be promoted as a fantasy movie, despite the fact that the concept is pure fantasy.

What I’ve noticed about many atheists and other secularists is that they often cry tolerance, but they are often the most intolerant people around! Really, they are tolerant of all opinions as long as they agree with their own.

This would be a strange comment, coming as it does somebody who almost daily attacks Christians for not tolerating his own version of Christianity, and who constantly lies about atheism, evolution and science on his various websites. But this is what we expect from Ken Ham.

It’s thrilling to see how God raises up different people like Eric to be engaged in the massive spiritual battle before us today. We pray God will use this 3D movie in a big way to reach people for Christ.

Personally, I can’t wait for the next Avengers movie.How will they top the Hulk's "Puny God" line?

Dennis, reminds me of religious people who ask me if I'm "angry at god" because my brother died.  This after I've explained the basis in logic and reason for my atheism.  Can they not grasp that one can't be "angry" at something that does not exist?  Yep, theists just do not get it.

Theists just do not get it! In a recent pic a christian keeps attacking an atheist with lines like "why do you hate god?" They assume from the git go that the bible is true and accurate, was inspired by god, and is the word of god. With this belief in mind it's hard for them to understand why anyone would not accept the words written by bronze age nomadic tribesmen claiming to be "god's messengers." There is just no proof.

Truth, science, and reason have caused some of us to doubt the loosely knitted "Frankenstein" that christianity (and other religions) have put together claiming god's "message and plan" for mankind. Again, there is no proof.

With this said, it would appear that the baby was thrown out with the bath water. That doesn't stop the gullible. They want you to believe their message regardless of flaws in the writings and the messenger.

Oh, where is Zeus when you really need him?
