Contact and goodman brown

A question asked throughout human history is: "Is humanity inherently good or evil?" This question is a theme in the story "Young Goodman Brown," and the movie "Contact." Both the story and the movie had themes of good and evil. In the story "Young Goodman Brown," written by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Goodman Brown leaves his wife, Faith, a metaphor for him literally leaving his faith. (try to combine these two sentences, it is too simple) He goes into the woods where he meets the devil and finds all the people he knows and is close to in his life doing unholy things. He (overuse of he) leaves his faith and gains knowledge of evil. At the end of the story, he (ooh) can't even look at the faces of the people he (ooh) comes across that he (ooh) saw in his dream. He can't even face his wife Faith because he saw her in his dream about the devil.
The movie "Contact" is about a woman named Elle Arroway. Her dad died when she was little and she's spent her life looking to the stars for life beyond earth. She received a radio signal from deep in space that gave all the prime numbers, and a series of data showing how to build a spacecraft to go to that planet. Throughout the movie, we find out that she doesn't really believe in a God. After she (overuse of she) goes into the spacecraft and encounters the aliens, some don't even believe her when she gets back because the spacecraft physically never left the planet. At the end of the movie, she (oos) does believe in God. Her faith grows throughout the movie. The theme of good and evil can be seen throughout the movie. When the human race learns that we've made contact, a lot of questions come up about humanities place in the universe. Atfirst, Elle wasn't elected to go to the distant planet because of her faith atfirst. ( first, reword with onefirst, and this is not good for and ending sentence, use in beginnin…
