    There is no proof of 'emerge from the seas'. Macroevolution is pure make-believe and deliberate lies to justify God-dishonoring lifestyles.

    Lufo moves a moon every human cheers and thanks him for creating life.
    GOD makes the Universe, the Earth, Sun, Moon, and Stars, humans get mad and reject GOD.
    Hahaha but if GOD was an alien named Lufo that didn't want you to behave yourself you would thank HIM too.
    Just read the comments, people love aliens more than they love GOD.

    • VincentValdez1985
      VincentValdez1985 20 days ago

      GOD was never the problem,
      the problem is people's ideas about GOD.
      A lot of false beliefs and misunderstandings based on lies that humans have made up about GOD just to make a quick buck off the most gullible, and most desperate to believe.
      A lot of faith is actually a result of people wanting to justify their actions onto themselves, so that they may continue behaving in a negative way and live with a so called clear action for the bad things that they do.
      We all know it's bad to steal, kill, cheat and lie, our conscious tells us this from an early age, it yells at us not to do morally bad things, but when we ignore it enough times, eventually that scream becomes a whisper, until we don't hear it anymore. Then neutral people become bad, then evil.
      Like Men that get Woman pregnant, and then abandon them because they don't want to deal with the responsibility.
      Or husbands that cheat, and don't care about their wife kid and their Families.
      Men like this is the reason why Woman get abortions. Killing the innocent. And when Children grow up in broken homes, they lack wisdom and understanding, a heretical education that they were supposed to receive from their Mom and Dad. So they grow up without a strong moral compass, and are more likely to become, corrupt, liars, thieves, cheaters, and murderers of the innocent.
      An extreme example of this would be like Adulf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.
      What religions do is, offer so called forgiveness, so that we can continue to behave badly and act as if the past bad deeds have been erased.
      And Religions collect tides and offerings as if that will wash away all the bad things we've done.
      The Catholic Church even went as far as offering pardon for sin, in exchange for a good sum of money.
      And for over 1000 years known as the dark ages, the Roman Catholic Church outlawed reading and writing, to keep the population ignorant of truth and incapable of critical thinking skills. So they can never see the truth and understand that they were being scammed.
      Then they also made it illegal by penalty of death for people to own and read a Bible because they said that only the Priest had a divine right to read the Bible and pass on the message to the people and be the intermediary of GOD to Man.
      If anyone read the Book Revelation in the dark ages they would be executed. Because the Book of Revelation condemns the Catholic Church as being a pure evil institution imposter Church of Satan the Devil.
      And whether or not the devil exist, the Bible still condemns the practices and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church, so they banned the Bible, and instead of reading from the Bible for 1000 years the priest read alternative books that they wrote themselves about the virgin Mary being the Mother of GOD, and a Religion of Mary worship was born and over 2 billion people world wide worship Mary in 2019.
      All to make money from the poor and ignorant.
      If people can't read, they can't read the Bible, and if they can't read the Bible, they will never read the Book of Revelations, and hey will continue to take the priest word for it that you must give your money to the Catholic Church.
      As a result most of the secular world hates Christianity because they realise now that the Catholic Church is a scam that rapes Children.
      And this is exactly what the devil wanted from the Start of the Catholic Church.
      1. To stop people from reading the Bible.
      2. To make everyone worship Mary.
      3. To make everyone hate the Roman Catholic Church and by default hate the GOD of the Bible for being associated with that evil Church.
      And what do we see now happening in the world?
      Step 1, 2, and 3 have all come to pass. The plan started 300 AD that took 1700 years is now mission accomplished.
      Most of the world now hates the GOD of the Bible for being associated with the Roman Catholic Church.
      And the whole time, the Catholic Church was never Christian to begin with.
      It was all a pagan scam to get people's money all the while prompting the pagan false gods of the ancient world under the names of saints that people pray to even till this day.
      Billions of people's minds are enslaved right now by an ancient lie that has existed for over a millennium.
      The New World Order is almost complete, A.I. is almost born.
      Once it is uploaded online, they will have complete control of everything that happens on this planet.
      Conclusion Lufu failed.

      TheShibbybear 20 days ago +1

      It’s only that Lufo is only represented by what’s in this film, while God, and the worship/following of God, has a long history with humanity. Unfortunately a history that’s tied to centuries of control and conflict. Lufo is easy to love at this point of our relationship with him...

    Absolutely not surprised why this has won multi awards. Propagates the way of creation some people would like to spread.
    False creation agenda. The "reptilians" like that.

    I find this agenda fitting for people who does not believe in our God the Creator, the Heavenly Father.

    Though I don’t want to retract from how insanely visually beautiful and creative this gory story is, I do find the commentary of each character to be a bit bland and monotone. I don’t know if it’s the language chosen or the voice actor, but this could’ve easily been the best short film I’ve ever seen. Still 8/10. But the voices can really go a long way...
