Evolution Vs. God – A faith-shaking documentary!

If you are anything like me, you’ve probably watched more than enough debates between secularists and Christian theists that have either confused you or had little closure of ideas.

I find, worse still, in these debates secularists are always using reason to argue against the God who gave them reason, and without Whose existence there would be no point of these discussions.

Ever have the feeling that no one in the audience appears to be be emotionally or intellectually moved in either direction, for all the great effort invested to get these type of debates aired?

After watching Evolution Vs. God, however, I found that I’d come across a worthwhile discussion. Evolution VS. God shows one Christian chatting individually with about twenty people professing atheism regarding Darwinian evolution and God.

 Well, wherever you stand on this issue, I hope you’ll give this documentary a bit more than a glance, in fact, I dare you to!

Watch the trailer for a bit of an idea of what this free movie is like. This trailer currently has over 325,000 views on Youtube.

 In Evolution Vs. God, Ray Comfort poses questions to four professors in biology and anthropology and to many students in multiple fields. A well-known Christian and evangelist, Ray asks probing questions to expose the unscientific nature of Darwinian evolution.

Speaking with P.Z Myers, Ph.D, Craig Stanford, Ph.D, and others, Comfort asks for evidence for Darwinian evolution, as in changes of kinds, using the “scientific method”, and no satisfactory evidence is given. (In tradesmen terms, a hypotheses needs to be able to be tested, observed, and repeated in order for it to be scientific.)


This is a massive eye-opener, as Darwin deemed changes in kinds, as in dog-kind, feline-kind, and mankind, necessary for macro evolution to be reasonable.

In a film where famous atheist Richard Dawkins is quoted to having said “Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence,” the students interviewed show how much of their belief in evolution is based on trust or faith in science books, teachers, findings, and ways of viewing evidence.

The students don’t use the scientific method to weigh the evidence, but rather show reliance on the scientists. This indicates that the nature of belief in evolution is more about faith than hard evidence. Such revealing footage must be seen!

Ray Comfort cares for the people he talks to as well.

He is not out to bring down atheists from their proud pedestal, just to stamp them into the ground, but rather to lead to an understanding of the true Creator of this world, who is moral and just.

“Would you consider yourself a good person?” Ray asks every one of them, and leads them though the law of God, as in “You shall not…lie, steal, take the LORD’s name in vain”, and so on, convicting them of their sinfulness before God.

By Jesus’ perfect and sinless sacrifice on the cross, however, even evil doers might be saved from destruction. This offer goes out to the atheists, agnostics, and hypocrites alike: turn from your sins to Christ, and trust in his death and resurrection, and you will be saved.

Ray Comfort, with the complete support of Living Waters, has produced a top-notch documentary that has a clear message and is not confusing like most “Christian verses Secularist” debates. I highly recommend it to all.

Watch it free now! In the four days it has been posted, it has over 105,000 views.

Thanks so much for reading and watching! To God be the glory. Pedrozki (Pete)

“Looking for Ms. Locklear” – a journey of elementary proportions

Some stories have riveting action. Others have confounding enigmas. This one has heart.

Rhett and Link in front of the Native American band ‘Driven’.

Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal, twoYoutube stars, have documented their search for their first grade teacher, Lenora Locklear. They first met when she held them both in from recess and, as adults, they wanted to thank her for her impact on their lives. They made the decision to not use the phone or the internet in their search. Rhett says of their decision, “We’d rely only on face-to-face contact with people.” This choice changed the search in a dramatic way, as you’d imagine.

Instead of being able to “google” ‘Lenora Locklear’, they would have to go back to their roots at their primary school in Northern Carolina and start the search from there.

Having people guide them, instead of a computer, they experienced much, felt much, and uncovered much.

From their primary school, Rhett and Link’s search moves to Pembroke, Robeson county, where Locklear is a very strong family name, meaning a lot of Locklears! The Pembrook area has a large proportion of people who identify as Lumbee Indians. With a recollection that their teacher was Native American, Rhett and Link felt that by going there they would be on the right track to find her.

After a chat with a local store-man in Pembroke, they are put onto my special character of the film, Carnell Locklear, who knows many of that last name. Carnell is a man with a sad past and yet a positive outlook on life. With a litter of puppies (to give away) stowed in the back of his ute, Mr. Carnell Locklear happily agrees to assist Rhett and Link in their search. He takes them around the neighbourhood asking all the Locklears he knows of about a certain primary teacher.

As Rhett and Link started meeting people, they say, “…Something magical was happening. We were expanding our horizons and touching stranger’s jewellery.”

Sitting happy: Cadell chats with Rhett and Link on his ute.

What captured my attention and affection about Carnell was his joyful approach to life despite his history of tragedy. I won’t spill the beans on all his story, but in past life he lost someone close and that altered the trajectory of his life. However, his hope abounds in God, and he hasn’t let the pain or regret weigh down his life.

My thoughts on this documentary are that we might never have met this man without the interesting constraints the directors put on their search for Ms. Locklear. It seems like a point can be made about the quick fix of social media and search engines and how one can miss out on real friendship because of them. Rhett and Link certainly made good friends with Carnell that day.

Visit to D.C.: Jimmy Goings is the chairman for the Lumbee tribe.

Without success in their using-puppies-as-bait-to-find-teacher efforts, Carnell points out that someone at an upcoming event known as ‘Lumbee Days’ could know Lenora Locklear. While at the event, Rhett and Link interview the hopefuls of the ‘Mr. Lumbee Pageant (or Contest!)’, a fight for fame and bragging rights. Hilarity ensues with four young men compete for the prized title of ‘Mr. Lumbee’. In their time there, Rhett and Link discover a struggle taking place for federal recognition for the Lumbee Indians as Native Americans. This struggle is highlighted almost every year when a delegation from the Lumbee Indians appeal to a senate committee in Washington D.C. Their desire is to have a bill to be passed for full federal recognition for their tribe. Rhett and Link’s search coincides with the delegation’s latest visit to the capital city, and seeing an opportunity in filming something special, they tag along.

The long 120 or so years of waiting doesn’t seem to daunt the people as they make their case, and it’s a reminder that if someone is determined and persistent enough, people might eventually listen to them.

Found her: Ms. Locklear was mighty pleased to see them.

As we follow both Rhett and Link’s search and the stories of the people they meet in this documentary, one can appreciate the value of people. Everyone is special and unique, each one has a story to tell and a dream to achieve. The point isn’t so much whether they find Ms. Locklear quickly or not, but that they go about it in a careful and understanding way. Rhett and Link pull that off quite nicely. You’ll also find that the outcome and the journey are joyously ordinary. The good old ordinary of life that surprises you with it’s peace and happiness. It’s the ordinary that makes for a good story and film.

Looking for Ms. Locklear has little to offend by way of crudity or sensuality and is a film I’d highly recommend to families who have young children. I give it 5/5 Headless Dragons for quality film-making! Check out Rhett and Link’s website of wonder.


Thanks for reading. God bless and ciao for now, Pedrozki.

“180” – a shocking, award winning documentary!

How does one start an article about a phenomenon such as 180? Let’s safely start with stats.

 The 33 minute documentary, 180, has received a lot of press on the Internet, in interviews on radio stations, and through hundreds of thousands of DVDs of the doco being given out to uni and school students. As of the middle of 2o12 it has been viewed over 3.25 million times on Youtube, and has attracted 50 thousand comments there too. Whether or not you have heard much about 180, my goal is to tell you that much more, so that you desire to share this “life changing” documentary.
A caricature of a colourful person, Steve, in “180”.

180 is a pro-life documentary that shows a multitude of interviews that the producer, Ray Comfort, has with people regarding the Holocaust, abortion, morals, and the Gospel.
Ray states in the video that he sees a generation of people in America who don’t know who Adolf Hitler was or what he did*, and proceeds to show 14 people who prove just that point. Mr. Comfort says, “It has been rightly said that those who forget history are destined to repeat it.”
Sickening footage of the Holocaust in 180 shows the Nazis’ dehumanisation of people, with dead bodies just dumped in ditches and in piles.
Ray tests how much people value human life by asking a hypothetical question, and most say they’d not have been involved in the slaughter of the Holocaust, even if they were under threat of death if they refused.
He then asks them what they think about abortion.
Then you hear the common pro-choice arguments and statements:
“It’s a woman’s right to choose…” “Every situation is a different situation…” or even, “I’m all for abortion.”

Ray Comfort then uses simple and convincing arguments to show abortion should be seen as offensive and evil as the homicide of Jews, disabled people, and homosexuals in the name of “ethnic cleansing”.  That is my view of abortion, too. It is morally wrong. Period.

This movie certainly throws no punches, and Ray leaves the most controversial part until last, when he guides the conversations towards heaven and hell. He explains what God says, and as a just judge will do, about sinful lifestyles and what He did to save people from that judgement.

This is why so many people hate Ray Comfort. He refuses to stop the movie with just the Holocaust/abortion argument. He targets viewers’ hearts with the Gospel. God isn’t fine with their or our selfish sins. He will bring all deeds to account, unless we accept that the price for our sin was paid for by Jesus’ death on the cross, and we repent of our sins and submit to Jesus.
When it comes down to Jesus, there are only two ways to deal with him: accept Him for who He is, God in human form, or reject Him as a liar, deceiver, and dead man. Jesus said himself, “Why do you call me good? There is no one good except God alone.” (Mark 10:18) So either He is God or bad!

180 is just that, a complete change of perspective and heart. People shown in the documentary really do a “180” on such topics and make a decision that could alter the whole course of their lives.
That’s why this movie is free to view on www.180movie.com and  Youtube. It’s why at least 200,000 copies have been given out freely to students by volunteers and the guys behind 180, Living Waters, and why the DVD costs one dollar per copy if 10 or more are bought online. It’s why I wrote this article.


If you haven’t watched 180, do it. If you have, watch it again with someone else. Share it online. It is too big an issue to sit on your hands. Get pro-active. Say no to abortion. Say yes to Jesus. You’ll have eternity to be thankful.

I have two warnings:
1. This isn’t an easy doco to watch. There are graphic images of Nazi Germany, and of an aborted baby. Use discretion when you watch.
2. Accept that it could very well change your whole perspective about abortion – about God, even. Still watch it though! Be brave.

Until next time, ciao (bye) for now! Pedozski

*Adolf Hitler was the leader of a fascist German political party called the Nazis, and sanctioned the homicide of many people, including 6 million Jews, calling them less than human.
