Storyline

Freshman university student Josh Wheaton attends a philosophy class, where the uncompromising Professor Radisson requires all students to submit a signed statement that the "God is dead" and never existed. When Josh refuses due to his own Christian beliefs, the Professor challenges him to defend his position that his god, Yahweh, is real, leading to a series of confrontational presentations between himself and the professor, with the class as jury. Josh's plans to go to law school depend on not failing this class. Josh's girlfriend urges him not to throw away his future with this pointless act of defiance. At the same time, Pastor Dave and African missionary Jude attempt to leave town on a trip, but are hindered by comical accidents. Student Ayisha is at odds with her father's conservative religious principles. Businessman Mark acts cynically towards his mentally ill mother, while his journalist girlfriend receives bad news from a doctor. Written by BakedEel

I Enjoyed It
5 August 2014 | by TrebabySee all my reviews

I'm not a Christian but I watched this movie and I got a big kick out of it. Not in the way that the producers probably intended, but I thought it was entertaining.

Of course this movie is complete hogwash with conversations in the script that would never ever happen in real life.

OK, where do I begin? As mentioned elsewhere on this page, atheists, for the most part, don't "hate" God...that would be like hating Santa Claus. And the argument that one can't be moral without Christianity...gimme a break. Has anyone ever heard of Aristotle? He wrote a book about ethics long before Christ trod the Earth. And finally, no professor would ever act like Kevin Sorbo's character. Anyone with a truly inquisitive mind would welcome a debate and no, Stephen Hawking is not consider "infallible." You can't just bring up Hawking's name as proof of anything. Never been done. Never.

Overall, this movie is about bashing what the producers see as militant atheism and secularism. Richard Dawkins is mentioned several times. And why anyone would get their life's philosophy from a dude who sells duck callers on TV I'll never understand.

If you enjoy overwrought, wrong-headed religious melodrama with a sort of a dark and surprisingly nasty undertone, then God's Not Dead is for you.
