The British made movie 'Creation' is at local box offices this weekend. It's the story of Charles Darwin and it beautifully captures the struggles in the infamous life of Darwin and it equally highlights the on-going debate between creationists and science. Here's a link to an NPR story that gives more details about the plot in the movie. For more information about what Creationists believe who debunk virtually all that Darwin had to say, visit the Creation Museum website.
One of the oddities within contemporary Christianity is why Christians seem to always be battling science.
