How can you be a Christian and enjoy monster movies? - CinemaDave

Jun. 22nd, 2007 01:13 pm How can you be a Christian and enjoy monster movies?



Terry Chick publishing created some scary comic books.
The organization printed some strong stuff about going to hell.
If you were a Roman Catholic, a Morman, a Muslim, a Mason or part of the Zionist conspiracy that has your name in a secret database at the Vatican; you are doomed.

I remember the effect this literature had on some of my classmates from high school. I witnessed wailing and gnashing of teeth for the first time, yet no one spoke in tongue that evening.

Chuck publication seemed to disappear, until I saw one of his cartoon tracts. This cartoon track was left in a public building. Chick Publications now has a website and here is the link;

Still, one must give credit where credit is due.
The following are words from this entries artwork.

Text From Poster Above (Left to Right)
Heidelberg Man -
Built from a jaw bone that was conceded by many to be quite human.

Nebraska Man -
Scientifically built up from one tooth and later found to be the tooth of
an extinct pig.

Piltdown Man -
The jawbone turned out to belong to a modern ape. Peking Man -
500,000 years old. All evidence has disappeared.

Neanderthal Man -
At the Int'l Congress of Zoology (1958) Dr. A. J. E. Cave Said his
examination showed that the famous Neanderthal skeleton found
in France over 50 years ago is that of an old man who suffered
from arthritis.

Cro-Magnon Man -
One of the earliest and best established fossils is at least equal in
physique and brain capacity to modern man...so what's the difference?

Modern Man -
This genius thinks we came from a monkey.



"Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools"
Romans 1:22

Neanderthal Man

(Link)
Neanderthal Man is an interesting character based on the fragmentary remains we have of him. Healthy Neanderthal males in their prime averaged a height of around 5' 6" and weighed about 175 pounds. Their bones were much heavier than ours and they were very muscular. Neanderthal's handshake could shatter all of the bones in a modern man's hand.

Neanderthal's brain was larger than most modern human brains, and he may have survived for more than 200,000 years, which in a way makes him more successful than us. He may not have really died out completely if we evolved from him or if he bred with our ancestors.

Some experts think Neanderthal made and played flutes. Music is a form of mathematics so the Neanderthal brain may have had more to it than we realize.

You know, given what I have seen on the street lately, we may be becoming more Neanderthal!

Thanks for the comment!

Neanderthal Man appears to be staging a comeback of sorts in the hilarious Geico TV commercials. There is also talk of a TV series. :)

I am looking forward to that tv series in a way. Perhaps the cave men only work best in 30 second spots.

From what I've read it sounds like the cavemen TV series will use a kind of comedic fish out of water concept. The cavers will attempt to live a normal life in a modern city while coping with various forms of prejudice.

Will it work? No one can say for sure. I think Sir David Lean summed it up best when I heard him say: "Nobody knows what the audience want."

Irene Ryan was a good friend of Kenny Miller, who was a guest twice on the show.

Kenny Miller recently shot a new movie in Florida. I'll have an entry about it soon.
