FAKE ATHEISM: THE MOVIE

Staring Hercules, son of Zeus
Racketeer
And featuring Superman!

SteamPoweredKleenex
Jeeze. Dean Cain sank even lower after hosting Believe it or Not, eh?

Also, when looking it up, I found this:

http://www.christianfilmdatabase.com/review/gods-not-dead-the- movie/

Yes, there's a Christian Film Database. Where's the parallel jesusverse version of POE?

Innocent Bystander
Where did this whole "liberal professor bullies Christian student, who then totally owns his ass in a debate" thing originate? This has to be the millionth variation.

It's pretty much a Scopes Trial revenge fantasy. More common than you'd think.

First time I saw it was when I was about nine, and that weird family was giving out Jack Chick "Big Daddy?" tracts on Halloween. Even as a Catholic kid, I knew it was the product of crazies; Catholics (or every Catholic I dealt with anyway) didn't sweat literalism.

I just realized, at that age I lent more credence to "Chariots of the Gods?" than I did to Jack Chick, and I figured for sure the Loch Ness monster was a plesiosaur millions of years old. So at nine I was not what you'd call a discerning seeker of truth, and even so Jack Chick had no hold on me.

deadpan hit it on the head. Just about every preacher I've had to listen to for more than a couple sermons eventually pulls out their own variation of the 'high school/college student christian is brow-beaten by militant atheist teacher/professor, and then displays some nugget of wisdom to discredit said teacher in the eyes of the rest of the class' anecdote of dubious veracity. It always happened to the kid of a friend of a friend. This is almost purely a phenomenon among evangelical fundamentalists.

I always heard a story about a college prof that would demand to know who in the class believed in god. Naturally, the persecuted Christians (and ONLY Christians) would raise their hands bravely only to be told that they were fools and that if a God existed, that being would stop the prof's piece of chalk from hitting the floor. He'd drop his chalk, it would shatter, and the hellish anti-god class (I think it was math or science, naturally) would continue.

Then some brave Christian not only raised his hand during one year's challenge, he utters some scripture or other, the chalk is dropped, but this time it snags in the prof's pants leg, which sends the now-defeated atheistic prof running for the door.

God: All-powerful enough to end world hunger or stop wars, but only able to make chalk un-miraculously land in a trouser cuff.

The fun part being is your story highlights another tenant of Evangelical Faith; Keep saying something will happen, no matter how slim the chances. When it finally happens, say god did it to reward you for asking it to happen for so long.

As they sometimes say, a stopped clock is still correct twice a day.

Screwtape
A certain (high, but not high enough) percentage of indoctrinated fundies end up "leaving the faith" (that is, they don't hate fags as much as they are supposed to, etc.) when they go off to college. Obviously its a bunch of liberal professors who are eroding their faith rather than reality and exposure to something other than the fundie WASP echo chamber.

The fantasy gives them hope that it won't happen to their kid; instead they will wear the full armor of God and defeat the evil atheist professor and spread their faith.

Innocent Bystander
I also really like that they're neatly dodging proving God's existence.

"So what's the evidence on behalf of God?"

"These kids should be able to make their own decisions about belief!"

"OK. So what evidence have you of a God?"

"Why do you hate God, professor-man? What has God done to you?"

"So, do you have any evidence at all?"

"STOP HATING GOD, DUDE!!!"
Jack Dalton
Professor Straw Man is totally going to hell, bros.
The New Meat
So how many nerds are going to see this movie because they heard that kid's name as JOSS WHEDON?
Xenocide
Joss Whedon, incidentally, is a lifelong atheist who often refers to God as "the sky bully."

But he has no problem writing movies about how cool The Mighty Thor is. HYPOCRITE.

deadpan
You know, Marvel Comics has a Hercules character, and Kevin Sorbo could clearly use the work. Just putting it out there.

SteamPoweredKleenex
Given Sorbo's age and what Marvel-Herc's costume looks like...

I'll pass.

Bort
Then consider Brian Blessed as Marvel's Hercules. I don't care about the age.

Xenocide
Professor Sorbo, if you're such a great debater, then why didn't you convince your wife to stop having cancer? QED, professor!
Spaceman Africa
I don't think that professor is teaching Nietzsche correctly.
memedumpster
That's not a valid question. You should ask : How does Kevin Sorbo hate God, or perhaps, what mechanism is involved in Kevin Sorbo's hatred of God? Why questions are subjective nonsense... like God.
Xenocide
Also, if Kevin Sorbo does not believe in God, how can he hate him? Doesn't Joss Whedon first have to establish that Professor Hercules is lying about his entire belief system before he can even postulate that he hates God?

This movie's kind of dumb, you guys.

BEHOLD EVERYTHING WRONG WITH THIS PLANET EMBODIED IN SOMEONE CALLED "HOCKEY GIRL":

Hockey girl 15 minutes ago
Learning about science isn't gonna give me a relationship with God, going to church will.

mordinvan 17 minutes ago
Do you understand the scientific method, and the basic concepts of the universe it has taught us?

Hockey girl 1 minute ago
Yes, but I really don't care about it.
Jet Bin Fever
The best philosophy professor I ever had was a devoted theist, and yet he happily taught Nietzsche and others because he wasn't a 2 dimensional Hercules-shaped cardboard cutout.

DISAPPOINTED!!!!!

Here is a much better video of Hercules debating the limits of human knowledge:

A liberal muslim homosexual ACLU lawyer professor was teaching a class on Karl Marx, known atheist.

"Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Marx and accept that he was the most highly-evolved being the world has ever known, even greater than Jesus Christ!"

At this moment, a brave, patriotic Navy SEAL champion who had served 1500 tours of duty and understood the necessity of war and fully supported all military decision made by the United States stood up and held up a rock.

"How old is this rock, sir?"

The arrogant professor smirked quite Jewishly and smugly replied "4.6 billion years, you stupid Christian."

"Wrong. It's been 5,000 years since God created it. If it was 4.6 billion years old and evolution, as you say, is real... then it should be an animal now."

The professor was visibly shaken, and dropped his chalk and copy of Origin of the Species. He stormed out of the room crying those liberal crocodile tears. The same tears liberals cry for the "poor" (who today live in such luxury that most own refrigerators) when they jealously try to claw justly earned wealth from the deserving job creators. There is no doubt that at this point our professor, DeShawn OranJello Washington, wished he had pulled himself up by his bootstraps and become more than a sophist liberal professor. He wished so much that he had a gun to shoot himself from embarrassment, but he himself had petitioned against them!

The students applauded and all registered Republican that day and accepted Jesus as their lord and savior. An eagle named "Small Government" flew into the room and perched atop the American Flag and shed a tear on the chalk. The pledge of allegiance was read several times, and God himself showed up and enacted a flat tax rate across the country.

The professor lost his tenure and was fired the next day. He died of the gay plague AIDS and was tossed into the lake of fire for all eternity.
