The Voyage That Shook the World

 
Watch the trailers and visit the website. Is this a film that promotes evolution?

No, it isn't [Creationists defend Darwin film].
Phil Bell, CEO of Creation Ministries UK, acknoweged that his organisation established a "front company" called Fathom Media, because they were concerned that experts such as Peter Bowler would not agree to take part in the film if they realised it was an "overtly Creationist" production. "At the end of the day," he said, "[when] people see 'Creationist', instantly the shutters go up and that would have shut us off from talking to the sort of experts, such as Professor Bowler, that we wanted to get to."

  2. This tactic sounds familiar. Wasn't there a movie in the United States where they did this? It's right on the tip of my tongue....

  5. Historical revisionism is a cherished tradition practiced by the zealous apologist for at least 4700 years.

    Eusebius would shed a proud tear over this one.

  7. ...used to be an evolutionist. Then woke up when I discovered it was illogical. People, there is an option and it is called Creation.
