Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the primary goal of The Genesis Code is to advocate for the reconciliation of religion and science from a faith-based point of view. Though there are two personal stories, they serve only as a framework for the film's message. Much time is spent on scientific instruction, including one lecture sequence that is more than 30 minutes long. A few instances of mild sexual innuendo, some beer drinking, and a sprinkling of insults directed at religious students are the only questionable moments in what is a mild take on modern college life.

Sexual Content

A single kiss between young people who care for each other. Some college boys make fun of saving sex for marriage. Some verbal innuendo: "I've never met a chaste girl" and "He scores more off the ice than on."

Violence

A male show-off breaks a glass and appears to chew it after chug-a-lugging beer.

Language

Some college kids make fun of religious students, saying scornfully: "You're a believer?", "You believe that religious hokey-pokey?" and "bible thumper." A few coarse statements: "I'm going to take a leak," and "that's a game for fairies."

Social Behavior

Presents the idea that two normally opposing sides can find common ground and mutual understanding. Supports the idea that a faith-based approach to life and its problems is a source of strength, even in the face of challenges to one's faith.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

College kids drink beer and/or wine at a local pub and at a karaoke bar. No drunkenness.
