"God is dead." -Nietzsche. "We don't understand philosophy." -The people who made God's Not Dead.

Nobody will ever accuse the Christian right of owning Hollywood. Especially not when they see religious movies made so clumsily it almost seems an intentional argument against the existence of a benevolent god. God's Not Dead is one such bumblefuck with terrible dialogue, nonsensical plot elements, and the most obvious straw man since Wizard of Oz.

Chris, Alex, and Ez all studied philosophy in college, so the most offensive part of the movie for them isn't it's racism, sexism, anti-Islamic content, or dismissal of western medicine (although that's all troubling). It's the portrayal of philosophy professors as dumb. They're not, as this logician proves in his response to the movie.

If there is a God, I'm sure he doesn't want his followers making such terrible movies.
