Description:

Please join CFI Michigan, southeast for a one night only screening of the documentary film Creator of God – A Brain Surgeon’s Story, by Vivek Palavali.

Creator of God – A Brain Surgeon’s Story documents Palavali’s observations on the paradox of human conflict. “Instead of embracing the oneness of humanity, we kill one another because of the artificial religious differences and national borders created by ourselves.” In these times of holy wars and Jihad, the documentary also explores if religious intolerance and insanity are based on Gods that do not exist.

After the screening Vivek Palavali will be present to answer questions about the film.

For additional information about the screening visit the film page on the Quality 16 website. For additional information regarding The Creator of God: A Brain Surgeon’s Story, visit the website.
