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 (due to his own beliefs), the professor challenges him to defend his position, leading to a series of confrontational presentations between himself and the professor, with the class as jury.

Trivia

Atheists have created a drinking game for the film: a shot for each time Professor Radisson says or does something no real Atheist would do, or a shot for each incident in which a non-Christian is portrayed in a negative light. Players are cautioned that no one person should play both rules at the same time. See more »

Goofs

When the pastor is trying to start the car, it will not run. We hear the starter spinning the engine, but it does not start. He comments it may be the battery or the starter. That is impossible since if the battery were low or dead the starter would not have the electrical power to turn over the engine, and if the starter were bad it would not turn over the engine.

Quotes

Reverend Dave: [In the Church, Josh is sitting in a Pew, when the Preacher walks in] Waiting for someone?
Josh Wheaton: Yeah, you could say that. It looks like he's out at the moment.
Reverend Dave: Well, maybe that's why he sent me.

Amazing movie
22 February 2016 | by ksaclo-84-324335See all my reviews

I am not sure why all the reviews are so negative. This movie has been able to do one of the most amazing things I have ever witnessed. It is so bad and ridiculous that it has actually managed to unite Atheists and Christians alike in being both offended and disgusted at the same thing. Do you know how difficult that actually is? Come on people, you should be happy that it one thing has proved that we all can get along and hate the same thing, arm and arm... LOL!! I mean this movie (and I use that term loosely) is so bad that it really has me wondering what the creator of this movie was thinking. I mean overly cliché'd stereotypes, mixed in with a ridiculous premise, coupled with even more ridiculous subplots. All culminating around the premise of a professor at a University requesting to do something that I am pretty sure would be deemed illegal and I have never come across or even heard of, someone making people sign a paper denouncing their religious faith. My favorite part is they then allow this kid to argue points of which in this day and age people can watch on any youtube clip, probably have already come to their own conclusions and doesn't answer anything on either side, in my opinion. So the fact that everyone thinks this movie is preposterous in a united front is quite amazing, and if that was the intent of the creator of this movie, then he is a genius!!
