Atheism, Movies, Genesis and Money

It appears that David Silverman of the American Atheists is getting bent out of shape regarding the Genesis 3D movie. According to The Christian Examiner, he said, "As we have seen in nearly every religion in world history, indoctrinated victims of religion will do anything, including pay large sums of money, to have their antiquated beliefs of immortality validated." What's wrong with doing a fundraiser for a project someone believes in?

Anyway, with his silly rant, I would have dismissed him and moved on. After all, it's absurd to claim that you are celebrating "reason" when using question-begging epithets, prejudicial conjecture, fallacious assertions and simple bigotry. Next! 

But wait. Jason Petersen of "Answers for Hope" likes to get into the philosophy aspects of Silverman's remarks. In fact, he is offering him a chance to discuss his atheistic worldview.
As most of you know, I, as well as Answers for Hope, have thrown their full support behind Creation Today’s Genesis 3D Movie. The movie is going to present Biblical Creation in theaters, in 3D. I can’t express how proud I am of Eric Hovind and his Creation Today team. They are currently doing a fundraiser for $150,000. I encourage you to consider donating to this project. At this time, only $40,000 more is needed to fully fund the project! 
Of course, critics against young earth creation are speaking out. Recently, David Silverman, president of the American Atheists, has spoken out against the movie. I have watched Mr. Silverman’s debates. He is definitely a good speaker, but oftentimes some of the things he says are unsubstantiated or nonsensical. 
You can read the rest of Jason's comments and invitation for dialogue at "A Response to David Silverman’s Comments on the Genesis 3D Movie".
