That’s the headline of a breathless article at the Worldnetdaily promoting a new movie produced by Eric Hovind that shows Genesis happening verse by verse in 3D. They seem to be terribly excited about that technology, practically clapping and cheering like a kid getting ice cream, as though it somehow had something to do with whether Genesis is actually true.
Coming soon to a theater near you: a depiction of the Bible’s creation account so lifelike, so real … you could actually believe it.
“Genesis 3D,” a technologically ambitious project of Sevenfold Films and Creation Today, is in development now, promising to be “the first, 3D, Christian movie about the very beginning of the Bible.”
Sneak peeks and scenes from the film are already drawing awe-struck praise.
“It’s like a time machine,” claimed Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis. “It takes you back in history as if you were there.”
“I was blown away, the graphics are stunning,” said evangelist and author Ray Comfort.
Gee, there seems to be something missing here. What is it? Hmmm. Oh, I know — evidence. They recently made a movie about Hansel and Gretl, but the fact that the graphics were great wouldn’t make anyone believe it was a true story. And the “trailer” for the movie is little more than people saying “Golly gee, it’s in 3D!” But Kirk Cameron likes it, and the guy who played Boner’s best friend on a bad 80s sitcom knows a thing or two about filmmaking. Of course, that’s about the only thing he knows about.
