I recently learned that Eric Hovind is releasing a new film, to be shown in select movie theaters across the country, via Fathom Events, next week (November 13 and 16).
The promos for Genesis: Paradise Lost seem geared towards the “evolution is a lie” narrative, and “debunking” of the Big Bang. If anyone is planning to go see the film, it would be nice to provide a play-by-play analysis of the movie’s contents, oriented towards helping conservative evangelicals sort through the movie’s claims.
The timing does not seem that great for Hovind (I suppose), as it arrives still fairly close on the heels on Del Tackett’s and Thomas Purifoy Jr.'s, Is Genesis History?, from earlier in the year. That earlier film comes across to me as potentially more effective, as the cinematography was really spectacular, and Tackett has such a winsome presentation. This Eric Hovind production instead relies a lot on computer generated effects, and it comes across as being more “in your face” than Tackett/Purifoy.
