Two scientists, working in secret with a highly experimental, super-intelligent computer, feed it everything ever written that exists in digital form ﾖ virtually every book, article and news story. Then they ask it the ultimate question: is there evidence in any of it for God, for a spiritual framework to life. To their astonishment, it arrives at an answer.
The God Question
Dove "Faith-Friendly" - Suitable for any age.
"The God Question" is an intellectual film that broaches the great question: Is there a God? A computer named Ivan is asked the question (yes, asked, because this is an intelligent super computer that talks back), then the voice-activated computer is asked if it is capable of making such a decision. One of the scientists wants to understand why an unfeeling computer that has never loved or been loved, felt anything, or can demonstrate faith, would be asked such a question. The computer must ponder what the scientist says. This movie is presented our Dove Seal for all ages, although it is not intended for the young due to its scientific and sophisticated themes. There are a lot of intellectual ideas shared in the movie and the very young will become lost, bored, or both. However, the movie makes clear that one must experience life and have the ability to demonstrate faith before one can decide God does not exist, or that He does.
