Radisson finds the topic of religion painful because his Christian mother died when he was 12, though he had prayed and begged God to spare her life. This may be what led him to study philosophy so in depth that he ultimately became a philosophy professor, but his desire to now avoid the topic of religion does not mesh well with his career as a philosophy professor. His anger at God has him requesting his students quote Friedrich Nietzsche and, in exchange, he promises to allow them to skip the chapter on religion. This is not the only clue the movie makers give that they have read atheist material extensively. Radisson tells Josh that if he won't reach a consensus with the class, he must prove God is not dead. Radisson had already explained this was a metaphor and, taken in the context of Nietzsche's point, Josh does an excellent job of proving this.

This is pure propaganda. I hoped for an objective movie that would have a meaningful debate.

All non-believers are portrayed as evil. Truly monsters. (not exaggerating).

I gave it 5 for the debate, the rest was crap.

God's Not Dead- The worst and most inaccurate piece of godly propaganda I have ever seen. Aside from being riddled with fallacies and being completely unrealistic (similar to what it stands for), the film and its creators look at nothing objectively and insist that atheists and other religions are all terrible, abusive and corrupt people.

If atheists were to make a film that flipped roles and portrayed christians the way they portrayed us, there would be utter outrage. But, if you haven't noticed, no one opposing this film really took it seriously enough to even be offended.

The film tells viewers that you can't be a good moral person without Jesus, and that it is perfectly fine to abandon your religion and beliefs as long as you are abandoning them to join the christian church. They also claim that if there's no god, then we as humans have no morals. That's extremely reassuring. I should hope filmmakers never lose their faith, otherwise they could go on a killing spree.

So yeah, go watch it. It's good for a laugh or two but the sex scene is rubbish.
