my roommate just brought this article to my attention. Someone PLEASE explain this:
A widely circulated Christian magazine said it made "a strong case for intelligent design."
you wanna argue that? i argue that it promotes single-parent households and homosexuality! the moms and dads are rarely together with their young, and they abandon them after about a year.
here's a quote I've taken out of context because it doesn't make any more sense when it's in context:
This is the first movie they've enjoyed since 'The Passion of the Christ.' This is 'The 'Passion of the Penguins.' "
Well, I certainly base my movie choices on the opnions of those who enjoyed the passion of the christ. Please, give me Super Troopers any day of the week over that shite.
But wait, there's more:
"That any one of these eggs survives is a remarkable feat - and, some might suppose, a strong case for intelligent design," he wrote. "It's sad that acknowledgment of a creator is absent in the examination of such strange and wonderful animals. But it's also a gap easily filled by family discussion after the film."
That any one of these eggs survives shows that survival of the fittest has worked over generations to create more penguins and penguin eggs that are used to the weather on the fucking south pole. come on! if there was intelligent design behind this, the penguins would have to walk like six blocks to their nearest chinese take away and they'd all have dvr. And i'm sure by "family discussion", he means innundating your children with bullshit.
and if you call now, you can download a march of the penguins workshop packet from this psycho freak.
"Please use the notebook, flashlight and pen provided," it says, "to write down what God speaks to you as He speaks it to you."
Oh, come on. if God is talking to you, don't need a flashlight!
and they've actually got me believing the movie executives:
the movie is simply a tale about penguins and that any attempt to divine a deeper meaning is misguided.
