Gods not dead review—http://creation.com/gods-not-dead-review

I have never talked about this subject before. I saw it after it had been in theaters for a relatively short time. I give the studio & actors an ” A ” for effort, but the plot left me cold, mostly preaching to the converted, like patting them on the back collectively, then giving us characters of 1 – dimensional cardboard – Heartless, cold, cynical atheists ( Mostly Professor Radisson as portrayed by Kevin Sorbo ), unsympathetic materialistic businessmen ( Dean Cain ), & rather hateful stereotypes of other faiths – The Muslim father who finds out that his daughter is listening to the Bible on an iPod & tosses her around like a ragdoll before sending her packing. The only thing lacking is putting red skin, horns, hooves on all the ” bad guys ” & showing them holding pitch – forks.

Playing for the other team – The believers are all portrayed as pretty much squeaky – clean & almost without spot or blemish. Let’s give them wings, halos, harps & a heavenly glow.

The premise – if a professor tried, basically, to get his class to proclaim that God is dead, or never existed in the place, I believe he’d pretty much be told to empty out his office & to not let the door hit him on the butt on his egress. I had a professor in forensic anatomy / evolutionary & he never ONCE told us that adherents of the Abrahamic faiths were wrong or deluded even though he ( Dr. William Bass ) is an atheist. He never blatantly stuffed the concept of Darwinian evolution down our throats & / or said that Genesis was nonsense. He had no anti – God or anti – Judaeo – Christian agenda like Professor Radisson appeared to.

& the film pretty much ends with poor Professor Radisson getting smacked by a car in the rain, then making a ” deathbed ” ( deathstreet ? ) conversion, while a missionary & pastor from some unnamed African country rejoice over his conversion. CALL AN AMBULANCE ! or at least get him to a morgue, for decency’s sake.

The only thing worse, just in this observer’s humble opinion, is that there’s a 2nd movie out, ” God’s Not Dead 2 ” or some such. PASS.

There are better ways to spend the price of admission – Contributing to a homeless outreach, shelter for battered wives & children, a local soup kitchen or food pantry.

The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971)

I remember these movies ! Dr. Phibes was like a more current Batman villain ( Think Harvey Dent / ” Two – Face ” with both sides of his face hideously disfigured a la 60’s Dr. Doom or an evil version of Darkman ) with a liberal sprinkling of 1960’s Batman – series campiness set in the 1920’s with steampunk technology.

Of course if they made ” Dr. Phibes ” movies today, the violence would be EVEN MORE graphic.

‘You’re a rotten orange with alarmingly fascist ideas!’: Watch hilarious Donald Trump as ‘Mr. Grinch’

Everything wrong & screwed – up with Trump & his hateful ignorant hypocritical ilk in a single parody video.

In parody there is often at least a KERNEL of truth – Veritas !

Malala Yousafzai slams Trump: His idea to ban Muslim immigration is ‘full of hatred’

Thank you AND your family, Malala – You are wise beyond your years. Unfortunately the young lady knows TOO MUCH about hate after the assassination  attempt on her life. She knows someone whose heart is withered by hate & whose soul is withered, charred & dessiccated by negativity & corruption as well as love of wealth for its own sake – Like ” The Donald “.

She is STILL much kinder, more humane & gentler than I would be criticizing St. Donald, the self – proclaimed political ” saviour ” ( The super – hypocrite ).

Peace symbol-wearing Muslim girl to Trump: I heard you wanted us to wear badges so I chose one for myself

You tell him, girl ! Making a good choice of symbols aimed at that deluded fascist nut – case.
Too bad the GOP puts so much weight on division & mindless paranoia. Things could’ve been SO different for them if they embraced unity & sanity.

Republicans Hypocritically Call out Trump’s Fascist ‘Spy on Your Neighbor’ Proposals

After this election, or maybe the next one, the Republicans will have to hammer out a lot of dents to their reputation & credibility, even to the handful of Republicans who are moderate & can make decisions without getting their programming from Fox News & the Religious Right ” pundits “.
That’s going to be a fair bunch of maintenance, should they decide to do it.
Either that or the GOP collapses under the weight of a trainload of lies, contradictions, half – truths, paranoia, etc. The GOP has lost touch with the average person. Do they care ?

Ted Cruz boasts about endorsement from anti-gay pastor and convicted stalker

Stories like this make me wish I could renounce my U.S. citizenship, renounce my humanity & wait for a flying saucer to pick me up & take me to a better planet / solar system / galaxy / or alternative universe where organized religion & the GOP never came into being, & neither did these ” whited sepulchre ” 2 – faced hypocrites. Or just pray for the rise of Skynet / the Terminators, the Andromeda Strain or the Zombie Apocalypse.

Christian homeschooler found guilty for locking girl in chicken coop and punishing her with a shock collar

That’s why whackaloon nut – jobs like these shouldn’t adopt – religious or otherwise. If society is going to ” hell in a handbasket “, these types AREN’T making society a whole lot better by peeing in the communal punch – bowl.
