So, why has the Catholic Church teamed up with NeoStem, Inc. to promote adult stem cell research? Why does the Vatican continue to operate one of the oldest astronomical research institutions in the world? And why was the Pontifical Academy of Sciences founded in 1603? Good questions, and the makers of this short film (starring Buffy’s Amber Benson and Adam Busch) think they may just have an answer as to why the Catholic Church has had such a lifelong interest in scientific advancements.

Well, I suppose that could be the reason?

Or maybe it’s just because, as the Catechism points out, “Basic scientific research, as well as applied research, is a significant expression of man's dominion over creation. Science and technology are precious resources when placed at the service of man and promote his integral development for the benefit of all.”

Either way’s fine with me.

Hey, stumble upon your website after googling Christian Iconography. Wanted to say I'm a Christian who's a fan of B-rated movies and your short clip was well made! Great job bro! The part where he said Christ's name in vain and the F-bomb did turn me off though. Hitchcock made a ton of great short films where there was no cussing at all. Wanted to encourage you and let you know I enjoyed it. Keep it up!

As much as I would love to take the credit, it all should go to Javier Grillo-Marxuach, one of the writers of the TV show Lost, who wrote and directed the short.

And you're right about the blasphemy, I should have put up a warning.

I like the doctor's collection of pickled peppers and other condiments. But it didn't surprise me at all that the anti-Christ would be an eco activist. :)

I didn't even think of that, that's great!
