Was interesting in Ben Stein’s film when he had Dawkins suggesting humans came from aliens.
Leftists will accept anything except the truth. “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’”
One thing they aren't though is Biblical literalists. Genesis says that God commanded the earth to bring forth grass, and the earth brought forth grass. That's an executive commander, not an intelligent designer.
The hell they aren't!
They certainly tipped their ideological hand with the ending of that movie. Recall that at the end "everything was OK" but Shaun was keeping his zombie friend under wraps. Here you had an image of modern western society with a clandestine zombie component. Who would they have had in mind?
There’s only so far you can go lampooning other movies and genres. “Shaun of the dead” was very good, but I didn’t think much of “Hot Fuzz” (satirising buddy cop movies) and I think I will give “Paul” a pass. I will think they are brilliant when they can do an original comedy script.
“I try to show my students that Biblical Religion and Darwinian theory are not mutually exclusive. I try to show them that, even if they can’t accept the evolutionary account of human origins, they can still see natural selection at work in creation and use Darwin’s theory at least in an instrumental way.”
The author is wrong. Biblical origin and Darwinian theory are mutually exclusive. Natural selection is not evolution. It is not an alligator changing into a crane. It’s a salt water alligator changing into a fresh water alligator. It is not one species changing into another. It’s one species changing to meet the local environment.
I will say this about the movie.
The anti-Christian screed was offensive. I half expected it when the female character came out wearing the Jesus shooting Darwin T-shirt, which I found rather funny because it shows the anti-Christian bias of the writers for what it is.
As far as anti-American, I didn’t really catch that. Both main characters repeatedly said how happy they were to be in America, and how they had dreamed of it their whole life.
The whole gay joke was that everyone they met thought they were gay, and they had to keep denying it.
The best part of the movie was the references to SciFi and pop culture of the last 45 - 50 years. You really need to be in your 40’s to catch all the subtle jokes in the film.
For instance they walk into a redneck Roadhouse in NV, WY, and the house band is playing the music from the bar in Star Wars, and the spaceship Paul leaves in is the Guitar shaped craft used on the Boston albums. The point being, and demonstrated by a not so subtle phone conversation between Paul, and Steven Spielberg, was that Paul was the influence for a lot of pop culture, and scientific advancement.
It was supposed to look like E.T. because Paul influenced E.T.’s creation.
Simon Pegg is funny, in a dry British humor style, and Paul is a rude vulgar little snot who still comes off funny.
Sometimes, a movie is just a movie. Everyone has their own bias, and we know what Hollywood’s is. This movie is not the best, but it wasn’t the worst. Not a bad matinee.
Please let’s just not miss the point, guys it’s not about Biblical Religion and Darwinian theory. What they’re passing through this movie to children’s minds can only be called appalling. It’s not only about Paul, pick any newly, or old, released movie and you’ll find tons of the same poisonous contents and misleading ideas to feed the chaos they created, pick any song, any TV show..etc People are being hypnotized by those giant screens and receiving all kinds of lethal moral solvents without even being conscious to the amount of nonsense that’s being shoved down their throats.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do nothing
Are you doing anything about this?
