Storyline

Freshman university student Josh Wheaton attends a philosophy class, where Professor Radisson requires all students to submit a signed statement staying "God is dead" and never existed. When Josh refuses because of his own beliefs, the professor challenges him to defend his position, which leads to a series of confrontational presentations between himself and the professor, with the class as jury.

Quotes

Freshman Registration Advisor: You might want to think about a different instructor.
Josh Wheaton: Because?
Freshman Registration Advisor: Let's just say you're wandering into the snake pit. I'd recommend Patel or maybe Mueller.
Josh Wheaton: Come on, man, it can't be that bad.
Freshman Registration Advisor: Think Roman Colosseum, lions, people cheering for your death...
Josh Wheaton: Yeah, but I'd have to rearrange my whole schedule. I don't think I can really...
Freshman Registration Advisor: It's your funeral. Last drop date is the 22nd; you might want to keep that in mind.

Unintentionally absurd
7 September 2017 | by knujonmapsonSee all my reviews

There is much to raise both an eyebrow and a chuckle in this movie, which wastes a frankly potentially interesting premise on casual religious bigotry. The film seems set in a world where the "religious" enquiry is boiled down to two possibilities. On the one hand, the most arrogantly certain stripe of Atheism. On the other hand Theism (to the exclusion of Deism, Pantheism, Pandeism, Panentheism, Polytheism, and a range of other options). And not just Theism, but one of the relatively small set of faiths within the grouping of *Abrahamic* Theism. And not just Abrahamic Theism, but American-style Christianity.

In the world of this film, Islam is a dark stereotype on the edges of reality, Judaism and Mormonism and Hinduism are nonexistent, and really neither is Agnosticism to be seen, even. Christians and Atheists are equally just so beguilingly *certain* in their knowledge of the unknowable. And yet the God debated isn't really the Christian God, since the arguments used in favor of their being a God at all are more suitable to supporting a God of Deism (if not Pandeism).

There is room in higher levels of discourse for films examining the fertile grounds of Agnosticism, Pandeism, even avenues of Polytheism. There is just no room for that level of discourse in this film.
