Kirk pretends to answer the problem of evil... and fails

In Unstoppable, Cameron tries to answer Epicurus's Problem of Evil: "Is god willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then is he malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him god?" Or more simply, why does god allow bad things to happen to good people? Why does he not heal cancer patients, amputees, and the like. KIrk then walk you through the Genesis story with a white Adam who has a mud fetish, and a white eve being deceived by a serpent that looks strangely like a human. the story of Cain and Abel where god does nothing to protect the good son and then bends over backwards to protect the evil son. Then we are off to the fictional Noah's Ark where backhandedly acknowledges that the story is patently absurd. So, the answer to why bad things happen? To glorify god. Of course that is exactly what a person would expect to see in a universe with no god.

Extremely creative, the whole program was riveting. At times I was uncomfortable but in thinking about it afterward, I felt it caused me to think and rethink my knowledge of the Bible and interpretations. His connections were memorable--and I will never forget some of the scenes. His narration/speaking was from the heart. I was glad I went! And, yes, God is real! And the scenes really bring home what a wondrous world God's creation is--yes, He is HERE!

Well written and well done. Goes through Scripture in detail and tells us why we may never know God's plan, but why we can trust Him anyway.

I brought both of my daughters to this event. They are college age and truly enjoyed it. This event was for everyone. It really brought you closer to your faith and was inspiring. Kirk Cameron and his wife are doing really good work. :)
