That is an interesting point, and one that I have been
thinking about the past couple of days. And it is
probably why things like this are largely ignored by
people like us.

However, we are going to have to be familiar with this
film and its contents in order to discuss this with fellow
christians, fellow scientists, skeptics, atheists, etc.

But I also understand that the statistician that worked on
the film Andrey Feuerverger, is planning on publishing his
results in a peer reviewed journal. Would that make any
difference to any of us?
