darwinfish.jpgA British film about the life of Charles Darwin and the naturalist’s “struggle between faith and reason” will be shown in theaters across the world — but not here in the U.S.

Why? Because distributors here don’t think fundamentalist Christians would approve.

According to the Telegraph in the U.K., Creation has been sold in almost every territory in the world, from Australia to Scandinavia, and will open the Toronto Film Festival. It premieres in Britain on Sunday.

The Telegraph report cites a Gallup poll, conducted in February, that says only 39 percent of Americans believe in the theory of evolution made famous by Darwin’s studies.

The film has sparked fierce debate on US Christian websites, with a typical comment dismissing evolution as “a silly theory with a serious lack of evidence to support it despite over a century of trying”.

Oh, well. God willing, I can watch Creation someday on Netflix. … In the meantime I’ll have to pollute my mind with the latest heresy from Dan Brown.

  • Give me a break..
    Tell the Fundamentalist Christians to stuff their dogma […].
    May not be the best movie of all time, but using that excuse is totally stupid and condescending.
    It s also pandering to the Fundamentalist mentality (although mentality is perhaps the wrong word to use in this context)
