Curious fact No. 1: City of Portland employees have a "Faith & Friends Affinity Group" that meets regularly at lunchtime to discuss religious matters.
Curious fact No. 2: Today the group was scheduled to meet at noon in the Portland Building to watch a pro-creationism movie called Unlocking the Mystery of Life.
Check out part of the video below. Meanwhile, here's an excerpt from a City of Portland email announcing the event here's a description of the movie from Movieguide.org that I mistakenly thought was part of the email announcing the event:
"UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF LIFE is one of the most incredible video documentaries ever assembled. It takes you into the microscopic universe of cells with magnificent animation and photography to help the viewer clearly understand the core issues and reasons why Darwinism cannot stand. Through state-of-the-art computer animation, UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF LIFE transports you into the interior of the living cell to explore systems and machines that bear the unmistakable hallmarks of design. You will discover the intricacy of a bacterial rotary motor, which spins at 100,000 rpm. Within the cell nucleus, you'll see the wonder of DNA, a threadlike molecule that stores instructions to build the essential components of every living organism. These instructions are part of a biological information processing system more complex and more powerful than any computer network.
This remarkable documentary examines the scientific case for intelligent design - an idea with the power to revolutionize our understanding of life . . . and to unlock the mystery of its origin. This video should be shown in every school in the nation and given to every teacher and school board member. It is a tool that could help alter the way science is practiced and taught."
