LOS ANGELES, Oct. 13, 2016 / Christian News Service / -- A new movie that purportedly "destroys atheism with one scientific question" will be televised live by Daystar from inside the life-size Noah's Ark at the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky. Download high res photo here Daystar, the largest Christian TV network in America, will broadcast the live event to 680 million households in over 200 countries on Saturday, October 22 at 7 p.m. (ET). Filmmaker Ray Comfort said, "We are delighted that both Answers in Genesis and Daystar have seen the importance of 'The Atheist Delusion.'" The film has been praised by top Christian leaders and filmmakers such as Alex Kendrick, Kevin Sorbo, and Kirk Cameron. Author and reality TV cohost Jason Benham said, "That was the best documentary I've ever seen!" Comfort is pleading with parents to watch "The Atheist Delusion" with their young children and teenagers. "Millions are being deceived by the foolishness of atheism. If there's no God then pornography, abortion, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, and blasphemy are okay, and this worldview will be reflected at the voting booth." The best-selling author warned, "Don't wait until your kids say that they are no longer going to church because there's no proof for God, and that atheism is intellectual and scientific. As this film shows, that kind of thinking couldn't be further from the truth." Matt Barber, cultural analyst with Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN, said, "This is, bar none, the most compelling and comprehensive piece of its kind. Somehow ['The Atheist Delusion'] managed, in less than an hour, to make the case for the Creator God." The live premiere, co-hosted by the Ark's founder Ken Ham, can be seen on the Daystar Channel on Saturday, October 22 at 7 p.m. (ET).
