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 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.

I find it ironic that this is a Christian movie, purportedly filled with Christian morals - honestly, you would think, being one of them - and yet this film manages to be completely dishonest in nearly everything that it does.
I am a Christian, and this movie offended me just as much as I am sure it offended atheists. It is completely dishonest to portray atheists as terrible, villain-esqe people who can do no good because they don't know Jesus.
The bottom line is this movie was made for a Christian audience which is only interested in patting each other on the back that they're "the good guys" in God's eyes. It's laughable, and downright depressing (as a Christian), that other Christians actually think this movie might be some form of evangelism for non-Christians.
