Hey all

Check out http://www.collisionmovie.com

There’s a 13 minute preview of this documentary that will give you an idea of the content.  It looks to be well-made and engaging.  Douglas Wilson is close to my “Christian camp” so to speak, so its great to see him going toe-to-toe with Hitchens, although I think Hitchens is rather weak as an atheist apologist.  Wilson puts most Christian intellectuals to shame (i.e. D’Souza, Craig, etc.)

Right out of the gate, there’s a strawman (and it’s on the poster no less!):

“There are two tenets to atheism:  One, there is no god.  Two, I hate him.”—Doug Wilson

If this is where Wilson starts, this will be yet another deep dive into the never-ending rabbit hole of theistic numbnuttery.

I’ll save for judgment for watching it (I’m not inclined to buy this kind of stuff), but the ad does not bode well.
