Event Details:

Bowling for Columbine did it to the gun culture.

Super Size Me did it to fast food.

Now The God Who Wasn't There does it to religion.

Holding modern Christianity up to a merciless spotlight, this bold and hilarious new film asks the questions few dare to ask. And when it finds out how crazy the answers are, it dares to call them crazy.

Your guide through the bizarre world of Christendom is former fundamentalist Brian Flemming, who unflinchingly explores the absurdity of belief and believers. Along the way, you will discover:

* Jesus Christ is likely a fictional character, a legend never based on a real human.

* Christian doctrine contradicts itself at every turn, and encourages immorality when it serves the religion.

* The beliefs of moderate Christians make even less sense than those of extremists.

And God simply isn't there.

The God Who Wasn't There may delight you or anger you. Perhaps it will do both. But you'll never look at Christianity the same again.

Hold on to your faith. It's in for a bumpy ride.

This event is hosted by Rational Thought (http://www.stanford.edu/group/ratt/index.html) and is co-sponsored by the GSC, the Dean of Students and the Atheists of Silicon Valley.
