Inherit the Wind is biased, shameful, pro-Evolution propaganda.

The entire purpose of Inherit the Wind is to push the agenda that the theory of evolution is fact that should be taught in public schools. At the same time, Christianity is bashed in this movie and portrayed as wrong. Those who believe in Christianity in this movie are hatefully portrayed by the movie as idiots. The Atheist teacher who indoctrinates his students with Atheism & Evolution is portrayed as a hero and genius, as are all the other Atheists/Evolutionists in the movie. Inherit the Wind urges all it's viewers to take these sick 'lessons' to heart in real-life and hate & suppress Christians and any anyone who refuses to agree that Atheism and/or Evolution is correct and must be forced down everyone's throat against their will in schools.

In reality, the theory of evolution is not fact, never has been fact, and never will be fact. If anyone thinks Evolution is correct, that is only an *opinion.* The way Inherit the Wind serves as pro-Evolution propaganda is a disgrace and slap in the face to film-making, God, Christianity, and mankind as a species.

The fact that this movie and play is sometimes served up to unwitting students as a mandatory part of their public education is nothing short of disgusting! They want to brainwash the youths to hate Christianity and believe in Evolution, just like the "heroes" of the movie and play do. This is *not* educational, it's disgusting propaganda in it's worst form.

Inherit the Wind has the bald-faced *gall* to have a line spoken in the movie which says anyone who doesn't believe in Atheism & Evolution is dead. The strong, direct meaning of this line is that even while they are alive physically, they are 'brain-dead' for not accepting Atheism and Evolution. Could a movie *possibly* be any more disgusting and shameful propaganda? No, no it can't.

"Inherit the Wind" is a phrase taken directly from the Bible - a Holy Book which the movie bashes wickedly as much as it possibly can. The filmmakers/playwrights might have thought it was "funny" to title their movie after the words in the Bible, only to then viciously bash the Bible with the movie. It is doubtful though, that they *still* found it funny after their lives on Earth and run their natural course, and they came face to face with the God who they were so keen to bash and fight against by making this movie during their fleeting time on Earth. Inherit the Wind was made in 1960. It's now 2008. Using common sense, it's easy to figure out where the filmmakers/playwrights are now. And it's *not* in a happy place with a smile on their face for bashing God & Christianity in their brief moment on Earth when it was "funny" to do so.

Guess in the end, it goes to show that contrary to what Inherit the Wind claims, it's not those who believe in God and reject Evolution who are brain-dead after all.

Well Ken ....oops, it isn't Ken Ham!...anyway, you're forty years too late to jump on the movie review bandwagon for this one. And the reason it's often included in public school curricula is that it's a classic that deals with fact over fiction, reason over religion, and the value of an open mind. Sorry you never learned anything from it.

Yes, I know you don't like that. Boo hoo.

I say that you cannot administer a wicked law impartially. You can only destroy. You can only punish. I warn you that a wicked law, like cholera, destroys everyone it touches — its upholders as well as its defiers.
– Jerome Lawrence & Robert E. Lee (Inherit the Wind)

You call it "Holy", I call it "Garbage" - how about we joining forces and call it "Holy Garbage"?

So it's a documentary. Got it.

What your like really hate about the movie is it points out a couple big holes in Biblical consistency.

That and it portrayed an America split on the issue but only a small faction of nuts who were upset with the theory being taught. Kinda like Mark Twain and Edison being admitted Atheists in their times and it not really bothering most people, movies like this show that you 'great Christy America' didn't exist even back then. Nowadays there'd be 40 groups calling for the imprisonment or death of the defense and boycotting any of the Twain or Edison products.

Good, because that's completely true.

The ToE is fact, that’s what the word “theory” means in science, and it already is taught in schools all over the world. Only cultist schools refuse to teach facts.

Christianity is probably portrayed as a religion, and as such has no place in schools, except during Religion classes.
Don’t want to be portrayed as idiots; don’t behave as idiots.

Algebra is also forced down everyone’s throats against their will in schools, as is Geography.

No, dearie, scientific facts are not “opinion”.

Those “unwitting” students are way more prepared for the real world than you are, nitwit. Actually, most 10-year-olds know more about the real world than you do.

Christianity belongs at home and in Church. You’re the one who sees hatred of Christianity, but most Christians have no problem with combining faith and the real world.

It’s wrong to say that about atheism, yes. But not believing in evolution is as stupid as not believing in seasonal changes over the year. It’s perhaps not as non-functioning as being brain-dead, but it is serious mental retardation.

From what I’ve heard, The Passion of the Christ was pretty disgusting, and shameful propaganda.

As far as I see, they only bash Christianity, not any gods.

The creators are either cremated, or rotting in the ground.

The more he posts the more I am convinced Navaros has no clue on the things he talks about

If you'd actually seen the film you'd know it's actually a metaphor for McCarthyism.

It's why so many American screenwriters etc came to Britain during that part of the 1950s. "Robin Hood". "William Tell". TV series which had anti-McCarthyite themes in the storylines.

Fact is, it being a savage critique of retarded thinking when the film's set - especially considering the year of the film's release: 1960, when 'McCarthysism' had discredited itself, Joe was hated by his own president, Eisenhower, and he died a pickled irrelevance, thus it all blew over (when it'd blown up in his own face prior to that film's production & release) - is secondary to the underlying theme. This is basic film school stuff, Navvy. Oh, but I forgot:

You actually have to watch films to make such observations*.

Observable Reality ultimately had it's revenge many decades later, however, in 2005: when Judge John E. Jones III gave the decision he did - and a precedent-setting one it was - in Kitzmiller vs. Dover. Fact: He was personally appointed to the Federal bench three years earlier by George Dumbya Bush; in turn, voted in - twice - by Cre(a)ti(o)onist fundie Christains. Judge Jones - like Dumbya - is a Conservative Christian.

The metaphor here - if a film were to be made of KvD, a la "Inherit the Wind" - is that Judge Jones attended the Ernest Pythagoras University of Advanced Sarcasm: where, under Prof. Doug Piranha, he studied the hidden depths & nuances of Pathos, Puns, Parody, Litotes, Satire, and... Dramatic Irony.

Such subtleties clearly go over your head however, Navvy. But then - as you'll have pulled your own head off at what Judge Jones' decision represents: a reverse-Scopes Monkey Trial - they'll have to alter their trajectory to compensate for your auto-cranial removal.

Messrs. Cleese, Jones, Palin, Idle, Chapman & Gilliam's use of Sarcasm & Irony would have that effect on you: as the Piranha Brothers was but one of their creations in "Monty Python's Flying Circus".

...well, it's that or Doug's brother Dinsdale Piranha nails your head to the floor. Cranium or the bellend of your 'Holy Righteous Penis', it's your choice. >:D

*- I bought the DVD of the Neill Blomkamp film "District 9" from Poundland today, to give to my best friend, to add to his collection. The underlying theme of that is Racism: Can it justify it's existence, certainly after post-Mandela South Africa?

The wall around the 'Prawns' Soweto-esque township in Johannesburg. Very relevant, eh, Navvy...?!

And I'd say that if this - the first film by Blomkamp - represents the future of South African Sci-Fi, then this part of the overall genre is in safe hands. [/"Elysium". "Chappie". "Alien V"]

It is doubtful that you will find it funny when you face Allah at the throne of judgment without a bible to hump or a superpenis to wave around.

Evolution is the prevailing scientific explanation for the diversity of life on planet earth. The last time I looked it made sense to teach science in a science classroom.
