Movie Info

Amid protests and controversy, young-earth creationists build an enormous, $120 million "life-size" Noah's Ark in rural Kentucky with the specific aim of proving that the Bible is scientifically and historically accurate. We Believe In Dinosaurs follows the building of the Ark from blueprints to Opening Day through the eyes of three Kentuckians: Doug, a gifted artist who creates lifelike animals for the Ark; Dan, a geologist and impassioned pro-science activist who blows the whistle on the Ark's discriminatory hiring practices; and David, a young former creationist who mowed lawns to raise money for creationist causes in his youth. Shot over the course of four years, We Believe In Dinosaurs follows the Ark from blueprints to opening to aftermath and tells the story of the troubling relationship between science and religion in the United States.

  • Often amusing, but never condescending towards either Ark proponents or their equally vocal opponents...

  • Although the film is frustratingly incomplete at times, it convincingly and sometimes frighteningly explores the big-business connections to fundamentalist religion.

  • opens up a dialogue about America's problematic relationship with science. Where it lacks in storytelling it makes up for in starting the much needed conversation that we've all been avoiding.

  • What really matters about this film is the way it fits into the bigger societal conversation about truth, opinion and fact and how we manage these things in a democracy.

  • Though entertaining and far from being a Biblical disaster, Dinosaurs spreads itself so thin that the doc loses its grip on the basics of storytelling.

  • Some stones are left unturned, and it would have made for a compelling addition to explore the conflict between the teachings of Answers in Genesis and their actions, but the existing material is certainly captivating and disquieting enough.
