This is a two part lectues series that was done by Christian apologist Sam Shamoun over at Calvary Chapel Pacific Coast in 2011.  Sam Shamoun is also known as the “Assyrian Encyclopedia,” a nickname Dr. James White have mentioned in his Dividing Line Radio Show.

This resource is valuable in our day and age with the rise of Islam and radical Islam on the news.  So here’s the two videos from Youtube:

WARNING: Contain spoilers.

I don’t really watch much movies let alone movies with superheroes but when I do, I do think about worldviews.  Here I want to look at X Men: First Class and it’s theme of God, evolution and ethics.

We’ll start with the movie’s opening scene.

The movie’s opens with a rainy moment where the first thing viewers see are some feet walking in the mud and the rain.  Whoever those feet belong to, they certainly were not walking in confidence or in a hurry to get out of the rain.  One can’t tell whether it’s day or night; nor does it matter, since it is meant to invoke nihilistic and hopeless feeling to the viewers.  Nothing captures the symptom of nihilism and hopelessness as the losing track of time and where one’s external environment no longer matter.  A few seconds into it, you see the backside of a soldier manning a machine gun post with the unmistakeable Nazi shape helmet, and a caption that says “Poland 1944.”  Here everything on the screen tells the viewer that the setting is in a holocaust concentration camp, with a line of people marching.  As the movie continues, attention focuses on a young boy and his father and mother.  The Nazis separated the child from his parents, with one party going one direction and the other another.  With the mom crying and looking back, the young boy ran towards the direction of his parents, only to have one soldier, then two and eventually four soldiers pulling this young boy back.   All the while, the young lad has his hand stretched out to the gate that blocks where his parents has headed towards.   If that does not call the viewers attention to the incredible power this boy has, the scene with the Nazis soldiers looking at the twisted gate now makes the viewers realize that this child has super power (and for those familiar with the X-Men story, this would make fans immediately realize that the young child is Erik Lehnsherr who later becomes the villain Magneto).

Below are reviews and Christian reflection of comics that has the theme of Darwinism.  I’ve organized it from the subtle to the more explicit.

Ultimate X-Men: Ultimate Collection Book 1

Ultimate X-Men Ultimate Collection, Book 1

Mark Miller. Ultimate X-Men: Ultimate Collection Book 1.  New York, NY: Marvel Publishing Incorporated, April 26th, 2006. 336 pp.

This year I started doing something new as an adult: read comics and graphic novels.  I picked this up because the X-Men were characters that I enjoyed as a kid.  I thought if I were to read about the X-Men, I pick up volume one to read as the starting point.  Overall it was good to see the origin of the X-Men as retold in this series.  In terms of storytelling it was okay—not too bad and not too corny.

In the past I have enjoyed Gary DeMar’s article on Comics and worldview published at American Vision.  I don’t necessarily agree with all their theology but I find them useful with apologetics.  Some of them were dated to 2009 but I’ve read them in the past in their worldview magazine much earlier than that.  I hope you guys enjoyed these articles:

1.) Popular Culture as a Worldview Wedge

2.) The Lost History of Superman

3.) Politically Correct Comics and the Homosexual Agenda
