Yesterday I went to see the Truman Show. It is the first Jim Carey movie I
had ever been tempted to see. I would recommend it. I will not give away
the movie but there is an analogy between the movie and a common
apologetical position in the area of creation/evolution. The movie's
premise is that an entire fake world was created for Truman who didn't
suspect a thing. The world was contained in a dome but has the appearance
of extent. Light's create a fake sun, fake stars, and a fake moon. The sea
has induced waves, induced wind, artifical beaches. The man is given an
artificial history by a creator who 'loves' his creation.

This is a perfect study in how people react to falsehood and hypocrisy on
the part of a creator as well as how people rationalize their own part in
maintaining the falsehood. Excellent show, excellent argument against
creation with the appearance of age!
