The Last Mimzy

Last night the family had Friday movie night on a Wednesday. We all settled down to watch the film “The Last Mimzy.”

I don’t think Rhiannon Leigh Wryn, the actress that played the little girl, could be any more adorable. We greatly enjoyed the movie, and as always explored the special content on the DVD afterwards.

The DVD included interviews with scientists and a Jungian Psychologist (What?) exploring the concepts of extraterrestrial life, wormholes in space, blackholes, human evolution and much more. It was hilarious. While they were dead serious, it struck me as a series of Saturday Night Live skits. I think the concept of a wormhole was first explored in Star Trek or some other sci-fi TV show or movie, and here was a scientist explaining how they work, even though there is not a shred of evidence that they exist. The segments had more religion and faith in them than a Billy Graham crusade.

That ‘scientists’ and atheists can criticize faith in God claiming there is no evidence while espousing the most fantastical and hilarious theories of the universe stuns me.
