Merriam Webster cited Creation: The act of creating, especially; the act of bringing the world into ordered existence. Evolution: A theory that various types of animals and plants have their origin in other preexisting types and that the distinguishable differences are due to modifications in successive generations; also: the process described by this theory. Creation must come first, then nature takes its course. Let's not call evolution creation now. Faith: (according to the Bible) The substance of things not seen. Faith: (according to Merriam Webster) Firm belief in something for which there is no proof. Science: (MW) The state of knowing; knowledge is distinguished from ignorance or misunderstanding. Ignorance and misunderstanding is not defined as faith. Science and faith are two completely different things. Come on folks, don't forget the simple things in life like the dictionary. I don't care about the movie, but the title should be evolution.

Stop calling Darwin a racist to scare people away from seeing the movie.

Darwin was not a racist he said that we all started as savages and developed our technology after we migrated from Africa. That wasn't to put down anyone, and he even says that race is a cultural thing that since we can interbreed everyone is more alike then people think they are. Which for a guy living in the 1800's is really progressive of him to understand that. He used the language that they used back then. He even stated inside tribes and lived with them to get a better understanding of human culture. His ideas started our understanding of natural biology in way that no one else has come close to. Your just afraid that people will see him as loving and kind and human when you want to demonize him to support your cause. Isn't that the same line of reasoning that Europeans people used to enslave Africans in the first place? how can you not be ashamed of your hypocrisy?

Darwin was racist. Given our country's history with racism, why would anyone watch this movie?

I don't dispute evolution as applied to nature. My question is Why would anyone want to watch a movie about a man who was openly racist? Did you read what Darwin himself said in his writing "The Descent of Man"? "At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace the savage races throughout the world." Given our country's history with racism, why would we promote a movie that praises such a man?
