According to this reviewer:
M. Night Shyamalan’s critically-panned flick The Happening is Hollywood’s first blockbuster to promote the anti-evolutionary theory of intelligent design. Maybe you thought Ben Stein’s ill-fated documentary Expelled was the only movie to argue in favor of the neo-Christian idea that an “intelligent designer” created the universe. Think again. With its references to “unexplained acts of nature” and a science teacher main character who calls evolution “just a theory,” The Happening is basically a giant propaganda machine for intelligent design. Maybe science journalists are jizzing all over its allegedly realistic plants-attack-humans plot, but we talked to Shyamalan and we know the truth.
Avowed Christian Shyamalan told us that The Happening is really about religious faith, and explained that he chose Mark Wahlberg to play science teacher Elliot Moore because of the actor’s intense belief in Jesus.
I said here, the Darwinists have no idea what will is yet to be unleashed on them in the culture war. They’ve only been sparring with the scouting parties so far.
If this reviewer is accurate about the movie being pro-ID, it’s indicative of a rising anti-Darwin sentiment in our culture in important places like Hollywood…
Also consider this from The Flood Film Project as an indication of changing sentiments in Hollywood:
Q: Do you believe in Darwin’s theory of evolution or that God created man in his image?
[MEL] GIBSON: The latter.
Q: So you can’t accept that we descended from monkeys and apes?
[MEL] GIBSON: No, I think it’s bull—-…I’ve got one of Darwin’s books at home and some of that stuff is pretty d— funny.
