Creation isn’t a bad movie to watch today, the 129th anniversary of Charles Darwin‘s death. (I could have picked the publication anniversary of On the Origin of Species, but that’s not until November.) Viewers who know some details of Darwin’s life might get more from the movie than people coming in completely fresh, but it’s still a half decent movie that explores the circumstances under which the book was written. I listened to The Evolution of Charles Darwin from CBC Radio’s “Ideas” before I saw the movie. It’s fascinating stuff. It seems like he was a nice guy.
