Literal and creationist interpretation of the Bible is the fastest-growing branch of Christianity in the U.S. and around the world, with 46% of Americans believing the Genesis account of CREATION is the literal truth. Directed by award-winning British documentarian Antony Thomas (HBO's for Neda) Questioning Darwin takes an in-depth LOOK AT THE of creationist Christians, who reject Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, while also examining how Darwin handled the question of God as he developed his theory of natural selection in the mid-1800's. Featuring interviews with Darwin historians and biographers, ministers and creation Christians, and Darwin's own words through his letters and writings, the film is a balanced examination of a 150-year debate, which has only increased in the last two decades with the rise of evangelical Christianity in the U.S. The film also illuminates little-known facts about Darwin's life, placing one of the greatest scientific mind s. in historical context. By turns thought provoking and infuriating, Questioning Darwin will inspire debate among believers on both sides of the issue.
