Hollywood sees human origins as a topic that can generate box office revenue in the culture wars of the day.
The just-released documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed does a masterful job of exposing the intolerance against anyone who questions evolution in academic circles (see a full review at Expelled Review). This refreshingly honest movie makes a good contrast to the Bill Maher film, Religulous (see “Mahering” Religious Beliefs).
Another origins-related film, 10,000 B.C., hit the theaters last month. It tells a story of “primitive” people living during a time of mammoths and saber-toothed tigers. Not only does it depict these early people as backward “caveman,” who are our evolutionary forebears, its very title shows a bias against the biblical account of history. The film purports to tell the story of the “first hero,” a caveman, whereas the Bible reveals a long line of “great men” who preceded the Ice Age, including Adam, Abel, Seth, Enoch, and Noah.
Editor’s Note: We authored this short preview of 10,000 B.C. based on the information we had when this issue of Answers magazine went to print. However, after a full viewing of the film by a staff member at Answers in Genesis, we were pleasantly surprised with how little evolutionary indoctrination was in the final product. For a full review, see 10,000 B.C..
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible—particularly the book of Genesis—regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.
