An "award-winning" creationist film?
Here's a mystery.

The Creation Ministries International has produced a DVD called "Evolution's Achilles' Heel". On their website it is touted as an "award winning documentary".

It describes it thus, "Visually stunning animations and dramatic footage help to show how the theory's supposed strengths are, in fact, its fatal flaws-Evolution's Achilles' Heels. Like no other work that we are aware of, fifteen Ph.D. scientists colaborated to produce a coordinated, coherent, powerful argument. All of the contributors received their doctorates from similar secular universities as their evolutionary counterparts. Each is a specialist in a field relevant to the subject: Natural selection, origin of life, geology, genetics, radiometric dating, the fossil record, cosmology, and ethics. Evolution's Achilles' Heels directly demolishes the very pillars of the belief system that underpins our now-secular culture-evolutionary naturalism. It's coupled with the Biblical command to reach the lost with the Bible's Good News. In a nutshell, it's a comprehensive outreach tool like no other. The fifteen Ph.D. scientists include Donald Batten, Robert Carter, David Catchpoole, John Hartnett, Mark Harwood, Jim Mason, Jonathan Sarfati, Emil Silvestru and Tasman Walker."

Yes........it's full of crap. But it's from a Creationist group what did you expect? Misrepresentations of science, bad science, cherry picking, weird mumbo-jumbo?

Well yes, you expect those to be contained in the film but it seems they also lie about the "award winning" bit too.

The film was shown at the 2015 Christian Worldview Film Festival.......now there's an event worth avoiding........but didn't win an award. It was runner up in the "documentaries" category. But didn't win. Close but no cigar.

As far as I can tell, no mention of any other festival or competition is mentioned on any CMI website.

So "award winning"? Just another distortion of the truth from our creatard friends. Otherwise known as lies.

People who believe some invisible sky daddy shit the universe out his ass one Monday morning are likely to believe most anything......

Including the "Participant" ribbon they got was an award....................

No less than fifteen PhD. scientists in relevant fields from the same kind of universities as their evolutionalry counterparts. And in fields relevant to the subject. Hmmm, why did they feel the need to put that little line in their? I wonder. I can't imagine a promo for a Nova special on evolution putting in a line like "all the contributors received their doctorates from similar secular universities as their creationist counterparts and all in a field that is relevant to the subject.

Dr Don Batten - no publications or last published 20+ years ago
Dr Mark Harwood - A doctor of satellite communications, not qualified because field of study is not relevant.
Dr Jim Mason - A nuclear physicist, not qualified because field of study is not relevant.
Dr Jonathan Sarfati - A physical chemist, not qualified because field of study is not relevant.
Dr Tasman Walker - A mechanical engineer, not qualified because field of study is not relevant.

Yup............they're lying about the relevance of the authors too. Who'da thunk it?

I've seen films like this. Yeah, they're not very good.

Colour me embarrassed! Half those dropkicks are Aussies. Oh the shame.

Facepalm

I do agree with them though when they say "that the western world is becoming less Christian every year."
And not too soon I'd add for anybody with a triple-digit IQ.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,

Why exactly did these 15 scientists get together to make a documentary instead of publishing their research in a peer-reviewed journal? Consider

I can think of a few "Awards" that it ought to win.
