An enthusiastic crowd of about 425 came to the Kristi Lynn Theater on the campus of Mt. Paran Christian School in Kennesaw, GA yesterday evening to see the Atlanta area premier of Living Waters: Intelligent Design in the Oceans of the Earth. Cheers and applause at the end of the film gave testimony to the quality of the film and its incredible story and photography.
Discovery Institute Fellow Dr. Paul Nelson was on hand after the showing to make some comments and engage in a lively Q&A session. It was clear from the comments and questions that the evidence for intelligent design presented in the film was well-received. Many students and others hung around after the event to have a chance to meet Dr. Nelson and engage in more conversation with him about what they saw in the film.
Several came to the Discovery Institute table to ask more questions and get more information. It was encouraging to hear so many tell us how much they enjoyed our other videos, pointing out which ones they already owned. Some told us how they had shared them with friends and family. This is what we want to happen! Sales of Living Waters at the book table were brisk as well. It is clear that these films are having a huge impact in how people view science and the evidence for actual design in living systems.
We are grateful to Mt. Paran School, especially Mr. Brad Smith as science teacher at the school, for helping to make this event possible. We also greatly appreciate The Areopagus Christian Study Center for partnering with us to get the word out about the premiere and providing volunteers to help us make this such a successful event.
