M. Night Shyamalan’s latest film… is it anti-evolution, anti-science?
Last week M. Night Shyamalan’s latest film, “The Happening”, hit theaters. I’ve enjoyed all of his movies thus far and plan on seeing “The Happening” at some point this week.
I was surprised to read the following on Science Blogs:
Following on the heels of the intelligent design documentary Expelled, M. Night Shyamalan’s blockbuster film The Happening is angering critics who disagree with its strong anti-evolution themes. The movie follows a science teacher who calls evolution “just a theory,” and encourages his students to believe in unexplained “acts of nature.”
Well, that won’t stop me from seeing it of course, but I thought it was interesting enough to share, anyway.
How about you? Have you seen the movie yet? Do you feel it has an evolutionary bias in any way? Please don’t post anything spoiler-ish. 🙂
