I wonder if god watches movies?
Trying to get spiritual nourishment from a two thousand year old book is like trying to suck milk from the breast of a woman who has been dead that long.

Pi isn't exclusively Christian - the whole first act of the story is him telling how he was raised both Hindu and a realist, then how he found Catholicism, then Islam. He is all these things at once. The theme is spiritual not religious. Just because one doesn't believe in god doesn't mean they're incapable of understanding spirituality.
I just watched the film last night and was more interested in the story and visuals than the religious messages. In fact, I never even thought about them until I read this thread (and yes I was aware of everything as an atheist).
