Dear God, please deliver me from these loons! lol
Evolution and such sciences as Astronomy, Cosmology, astro physics, and of course evolutionary biology continues to be a major bugaboo for religions that dearly want -- or need-- to hold onto a view of the bible as the Word of their particular "God".  That just is not going to change and the loons are going to continue to offer movies and books and websites that deny or ridicule or demonize these sciences. 
The dialogue in the trailer is simplistic and misrepresents biology and evolution at the same time.
The COLLEGE-LEVEL bio teacher is using an egg and a chicken!!!!!! to illustrate evolution????!!!!!  Holy fucking ludicrous, Batman! 
For the record, 1) the egg came first. Chickens are birds that evolved from small dinosaurs that produced eggs in order to reproduce.  2) Evolution is not THE answer to life's origins.  Evo is A answer and currently the most likely and best tested answer to the question of why we have such a diversity of species, all of which appear to be related through common ancestors.
Now, if this fictional prof stuck in a fundaloon movie had shown a picture of an amoeba and a picture of his children and stated "This semester we are going to look at how a particular science and a particular group of scientists have determined how such simple organisms as this amoeba could have and probably did have evolved over billions of years into the diversity of creatures around us, from trees to lions to us", then THAT would be an accurate scene.  Lots of luck seeing THAT scene!!!!
A lot of money is being spent in order to convince the world that Christianity is THE answer, and the Bible THE word of a magic being!

A bunch of fundamentalist Christian "somebodys" have enthusiastically endorsed the upcoming anti-evolution film, "A Matter of Faith", set to hit theaters in late September. The trailer looks predictably gacky-
