RE: Life of Pi
I saw the film the other night. The reference comes from the beginning of the movie, when a writer approaches the adult Pi and said he was told Pi has a story, and Pi said he has a story that will make him believe in God.

It's a survival story with fantasy elements, and Pi believes God came at just the right times to ensure his survival.


*** Spoiler alert ***



Basically though, at the end of the story Pi has to tell a bland, more accurate & gruesome version of his story, and he asks the writer which story he likes better. The writer replies, "The one with the tiger." And so it is with God, supposedly....which is no evidence whatsoever.

I didn't see the previews for the movie, but my mom did, and said she wants to see the movie. But after I saw the movie I do not think that my mother would like it very much. I wonder if she just wants to see it because she also heard something to the effect of it being evidence for God.
