I was raised in the so-called Third World and live in Europe. I watched this film, because the subject interests me. While watching, I was thinking "This is a comedy, it didn't really happen, these people are actors, right?", so hard it was for me to believe that this was taking place in a nation everybody (mostly Americans) thinks it's the country that "leads" the world.
In the so-called Third World Evangelicals have grown a lot and more and more of them infiltrate politics, but I don't know of any country where they have so much power to change things and force their religious agenda. How can this be possible in the country that supposedly leads the world, and worse: in the XXI century? If I were American, I would be ashamed.
Science is about finding things out, whatever it is. When some people decide that a book says how things must be, this is obviously not science. Science is not about proving a book is right.
It's laughable especially because some people decide that there is a God, a certain God is the right God and a certain book is his book. Couldn't the God of indigenous people in the Amazon, for example, be the right God, and all people who think that the God of the Bible is the right one have been wrong all this time? Why not? Also, John Calvin is a very bad advertisement for a country, since everybody who knows History also knows that he did very evil things, like sending opponents to be burnt at the stake (see Michael Servetus, for one example).
Texas is a funny land...
