A little background about myself so you can understand the views I held prior to watching this video.
I was raised a Christian, but never gave it much thought. Assumed the Bible was correct, but never really spent any mental energy on it. As a kid, I quit attending church and was just a Christian by label, not by practice. As I went through High School, College, and my personal studies, I grew into quite the fan of science and was convinced by the arguments for evolution and against Biblical creation. I mean, they're teaching this stuff in all schools - it must be factual. Recently, I realized I've never truly considered my views of this life and this world, and started my quest for answers. I watched this video entirely open minded, but leaning towards beliefs against Biblical creation.
As someone who assumed evolution was proven fact, it was eye opening to see modern arguments and proofs showing that evolution isn't as rock-solid as my science teachers told me. The video makes a strong arguments against evolution and has revealed to me that belief in evolution is a matter of faith! In fact, I would go as far as to say that belief in evolution is absolutely nothing except faith.
The video presents arguments against evolution and for creation from a multiple disciplines and topics such as biology, origins of life, radiometric dating, cosmology, natural selection, and more. It shows that natural selection is incapable of being an engine for evolution as we are taught in school. That survival of the fittest is incapable of explaining arrival of the fittest. That life is in a state of degradation from what appears to have been more perfect origins. These scientific arguments leave you questioning how evolution has come to be known as fact.
A number of other topic are discussed. Such as flaws in dating methods placing the age of the planet and life at billions and millions of years old. It discussed how slow tectonic activity cannot account for smoothly-bent mountains and cool tectonic plates submerged in lava. It discussed how the big bang would defy the laws of physics, and is based on assumptions that cannot be known to be true. A number of other topics are covered!
Finally, the video finishes with a segment on the ethical implications of humanity being the product of a random, unguided process of evolution. It explains that if we are merely the product of chance, we serve no purpose. Life is ultimately meaningless, morality is unexplainable, and free will is a mythical construct of the human mind. If you and I are merely a chemical reaction, what is our purpose? This segment spoke directly to my mind, heart and soul - as it is something I have deeply pondered.
Overall, this was an absolutely great purchase! Some segments dive deep into scientific topics while others are lighter, yet packed with information! Please, whether you believe in evolution or are looking for arguments against it, watch it! It will open your eyes.
For years, I've held that evolution is nothing more than a failed 19th century philosophy. These scientists prove it and reveal just how weak the idea of evolution is and how the scientific establishment is failing absolutely us today and for future generations by holding it up as a 'fact.' Something doesn't come from nothing, the incredible complexity of DNA programming didn't/couldn't arise from natural processes...this is the scientific proof of it. Watch with an open mind, non-believers, and for those believers who buy the idea that the Bible is not a science book, will gain much from this exploration.
This was instantly my favorite book/DVD for refuting Evolution. I've been exposed to a lot of things on this topic over the years -- Icons of Evolution, Tornado in a Junkyard, The Case for a Creator, etc. However, it had been a few years since I had read anything when I first viewed this DVD. I knew the case against Evolution was really strong, but I had not idea it had gotten this strong.
The evidence is truly mind-boggling. Indeed, it's baffling why anyone ever believes in evolution. All the evidence shows that it is impossible. It is merely something that people "believe"--not anything that science proves in any way.
My highest recommendation. While you're at it, buy one to give to a friend.
If this video and the book by the same name were given equal space (or a space) in the science classroom, virtually no one would accept goo to you evolution as even remotely possible. Microbes to people evolution was logically improbable from the start, but genetics really tell the tale. Only a fool or someone really invested in evolution (evolutionary scientists) could believe people spontaneously, without direction, evolved from single-cell organisms after seeing this video and reading the book. It hardly seems scientific to eliminate from consideration from the get-go a possible answer (or the answer) that there was a Creator. When two animals for instance have similarities, (human hand and bat wing, e.g.) logically it does not mean that one evolved from the other, but possibly they had the same creator. The fact that science will not even consider the possibility of a Creator means that science is doomed to never arrive at the correct answer, if Creation is the correct answer as I think it is. The fact that this Evolution nonsense is being foisted upon a captive audience of children and young adults without criticism or rebuttal in the school system is the problem. One has to go out of their way and outside the school system to get a contrary opinion. This video and book do so nicely, with my only complaint being that it is not actually taught in schools.
The scientists who were interviewed in this very well-done film all came from an evolutionary worldview until they woke up and realized that evolution is not based on science, it's based on faith. They each separately recognized that all the observable facts in their fields of expertise conflicted with the evolution dogma. Multiple disciplines within the sciences are represented by experts in their fields who find true science (observable phenomena or patterns) is more consistent with an intelligent designer than with random natural events. Though the book of the same name is great too, it is somewhat technical, but this film is understandable for high school and up.
As Agnostic as I am, this Production is pretty convincing in raising doubts about the "scientific" tools and methods usually used to dismiss the "sceptics" of the "Theory of Evolution".
In other words, there is no such thing as "The Theory of Evolution"; there are MANY theories of evolution, and none can answer the most-fundamental questions.
One example which hit me as a Scientist is: Carbon Dating, or any dating based on nuclear half-life measurements is flawed in its very principle because one never knows that ALL the Daughter products were indeed created from the original material assumed for a piece of rock or a fossil.
In other words, once you follow the logic presented in this DVD with an unbiased mind---if you can ignore all the propaganda you have been brain-washed with---you may start thinking and pondering for yourself.
Their theories were very interesting but didn't follow through with supporting information. Showed many scientists in support, but only used 3 or 4 to collaborate. For example, it seemed to invalidate the dating methods used today but never offered alternatives or explanations. The section on Mt Saint Helen's eruption is very interesting, especially about the trees in the lake and how fast everything happened. Interesting video.
I love when great arguments are presented, even when I disagree with them. The arguments in this movie were well constructed and had excellent facts backing them. The pacing of the movie kept my attention. I loved it.
