Synopsis[edit]

Notability[edit]

I tagged this for notability when I checked Rotten Tomatoes and found that it had zero reviews from the major critics. The sourcing currently on the article is all just a database and an apologetics organization. --Nat Gertler (talk) 04:46, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

Answers in Genesis[edit]

I first removed AiG as a source for anything but their own opinion, as AiG is a notoriously unreliable source, as their history at WP:RSN shows.

However, with further investigation, I am now even removing their own opinion. They do not appear to be a third-party source at all. They are advertised on the film's website, and Answers in Genesis was rounding up sponsors for the film, as they explain in this video and as can be seen on their website. At least one source describes AiG as producing the movie, although I am not sure if that's quite an accurate descriptor of the relationship. --Nat Gertler (talk) 03:58, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

I restored it, as that was uncalled for. There is no reason to believe AiG is not reliable concerning the endorsements of other creationists. I know for a fact that Ray Comfort, at least, has a very close relationship with AiG and a long friendship with Ken Ham (they frequently promote each other's material and organizations). The endorsements were originally cited on the website of A Matter of Faith, but the reference was removed, so I had to cite AiG's website itself. Additionally, AiG may have helped promote the film, but it did not produce the film. As a creationist organization, it is natural for an organization like AiG to strongly promote one of the very few Christian creationist films that actually was shown in theaters. --1990'sguy (talk) 15:39, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
