When a pastor is shaken by the visible faith of a street-corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a journey that impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate.
A Christian girl goes off to college for her freshman year and begins to be influenced by her popular Biology professor who teaches that evolution is the answer to the origins of life. When her father suspects something happening, he begins to examine the situation and what he discovers completely catches him off guard. Now very concerned about his daughter drifting away from the faith, he tries to do something about it. Written by
Actress Jordan Trovillion's performance in this film earned her a possibility of being in the short film, Into The Darkness (2015). Director/writer of the short film, Van Morgan, said he enjoyed her in this film and wanted her in his film. See more »
When Steven Whitaker makes his statement about Creationism not being taught to the administrator, the administrator states that Evolution is taught in all public schools as the answer to the origin of life. This is not true, no public or private school teaches that Evolution is the origin of life, rather it is taught that Evolution is the reason we see so many different types of life. See more »
I watched this movie out of pure morbid curiosity, as I watched it I began to question whether this was a Christian film or not... I mean it has to be because the disgusting lack of understanding of evolution, but then again, it portrays Christians as diabolical, manipulative, and ignorant as all get out... It starts out with a girl going to a biology class (why would a evolution denier study biology?), the professor seems warm and charming and respectable. Of course the portrayal of his understanding of evolution is off, but then again it was written by people who deny evolution. The plot then twists and turns for a good long while, with the girl being a typical college student more or less with weird shenanigans and chasing boys. It is peppered with really creepy scenes of the girls parents, and predatory boys just looking to, pardon the expression, "get their dick wet". It starts to get to some substance when the father of the girl looks up the nice professors name and finds him to be an evolutionist, oh the horror. The father decides he should talk to this Kaman guy and give him the once over for teaching his daughter, a BIOLOGY major, evolution. When he approaches the professor he chastises him for leading his daughter astray and questions the professors beliefs. The professor is very nice about it saying that if the bible helps the father then that is all that matters, the professor says that evolution helps in and that is all that matters. The father won't accept this and continues to berate the professor. When the professor comes up with what I think is a fair proposal to have a debate on the subject the Christian father freaks out and backs down. Big surprise. Then it gets weirder, and even more aggressive, with a student journalist creeping on the poor girl who just needs some space to find herself. He becomes aggressive in his pushing Christianity on her, and his bad mouthing of the nice professor. They try to paint the professor in a weird light trying to make him look evil, but actually portrays him as a reasonable and good person.
In the end if you want the run around of this whole movie it could be summed up in one interaction between a random student and the Christian journalist. The random student and the girl are discussing how people came from "apes", which again betrays the authors poor understanding of evolution. The creepy Christian journalist boy, again creepin on the girl stalking her, pushes his way into the conversation and then gives his incredible reasoning as to why we did not come from apes and I quote. Christian Journalist: "Does your mom look like an ape?" Random Student: "What?" CJ, aggressively I might add, "I'll take that as a no, does your grandma look like an ape?" This continues in a really mean way. I mean seriously, are you trying to make christians look like a bunch of ignorant bullies? If this is how you want your religion to be portrayed, that's fine, I guess... but man,I wouldn't want this movie associated with my religion and defending my beliefs.
In the end this movie feels more like a pro-evolution/anti-Christianity (especially with the speech made by the professor at the end) which is why i couldn't give it only 1 star. I mean really, it does a pretty good job of painting a disgusting picture of Christianity, their ignorance and their intolerance.
