I don't know much about this film/book other than it's written by an atheist and its driving christians crazy despite having watered down some of the atheistic themes to try to avoid pissing off the fundies. Some are even upset that they watered it down, they claim that people will see the tamer movie then buy the book as a back door way to get children to question their faith. You just can't win with some people. Just by the random clicks across the Blogsphere I ended up at a site called Christian Apologetics Ministries, and of the 9 or 10 posts (at the time of writing) one of them was NOT about this movie. Now I knew a few people were annoyed but holy crap bro, even when I'm obsessing about a chick I break up the monotony a little bit. And why do people care so much? It's a movie, its fiction, I could see people getting upset about documentaries that deal with controversial issues, but with only a couple exceptions documentaries don't get enough audience for anyone to get upset about their content. I'm not really sure why I care enough about this apologists opinions to even bother with a reply, maybe I'm just trying to break up my monotony a bit.
