Was Darwinian atheist P. Z. Myers misrepresented in Ray Comfort’s Evolution vs. God film?


The other day, V. J. Torley offered a mixed review of Ray Comfort’s new film, evolution vs. God (online here.)

Myers claims he was misrepresented in it:

University of Minnesota Morris professor Paul Zachary Myers claims that he was misrepresented in Ray Comfort’s new movie “Evolution vs. God: Shaking the Foundations of Faith.” Myers, who had only seen the movie trailer when he made his accusation, mocked the movie’s claim to have “held his feet to the fire until it was clear that there was no evidence for evolution.”

Comfort disputes that:

Comfort maintains that he fairly represented the professor in the film, and that while the trailer for the movie was only a short clip of the interview, Myers is given more talking time than most people in the film. He said that much of the professor’s interview was very relevant, and that it would have shown a lack of integrity if he had misrepresented Myers in the movie (Gospel Herald).

Those students looked pretty smart to me. They surely would not be unaware of the totalitarian 'ethos' of the scientific establishment in the US, and the career-terminating sanctions against scientists who don't toe the materialist line. In fact, I'd be surprised if they didn't follow this blog. Axel

OT: An 83,000-Processor Supercomputer Can Only Match 1% of Your Brain - August 6, 2013 Excerpt: You've undoubtedly heard over and over again about what an absurdly complex entity the human brain is. But a new breakthrough by Japanese and German scientists might finally drive the point home. Taking advantage of the almost 83,000 processors of one of the world's most powerful supercomputers, the team was able to mimic just one percent of one second's worth of human brain activity—and even that took 40 minutes. http://gizmodo.com/an-83-000-processor-supercomputer-only-matched-one-perc-1045026757 bornagain77
