You might think this group which presents itself as a defender of what we know is true in the scriptures to defend the truth. Instead, they guide the viewer toward “Intelligent Design.” This is NOT the same as Creation. Intelligent design is a gateway deception leading people toward panspermia- a really ignorant & absurd idea that space rocks, not the primordial soup, introduced life on earth. Oh, and not really rocks... but space aliens are the vector that brought life to earth. Oh, and not aliens, you know... demons. Anyone who has been ensnared by “Intelligent Design,” be wary, brethren, the enemy is subtle!
The message of this film is that Christianity is all about bogus science. This turns Christians away from Christ towards foolish arguments, while keeping unbelievers away through its blatant inaccuracy. As with creation science generally, the scientific arguments are wrong. Mutations are not all harmful, nor even generally harmful - most have no effect, and are easily reversible. If the genetic entropy argument were true, you would be a degenerate mutant - had you noticed? Also, creatures with short life spans (like most insects, most weeds, etc.) should have died out thousands of years ago if the argument were true. Information is produced by unintelligent forces. Every event produces new information. Those are a few of the more foundational errors, but many of the claims are completely false; others are misinterpreted; one or two actually correctly identify an area that is not well-understood, but a question mark is not disproof. Conversely, they completely fail to critically examine their own assumptions and claims. The geologic record unambiguously supports a vast age for the earth (as first recognized in the late 1600's by early geologists, most of whom were evangelical Christians) and shows no trace of a global flood (although by the early 1700's it was clear that most geological layers could not be produced by a global flood, it was uncertain whether a puzzling layer near the very end of geologic time might be from a continental to global scale flood until about the 1840's, when the layer was shown to be glacial in origin.) Making a big deal about 15 PhD's while claiming that hundreds of thousands of PhD's are part of a vast anti-biblical conspiracy is not good; the number of logical fallacies is quite large, and the number of accurate representations of evolutionary biology are quite small. They also deny the diversity of young-earth and anti-evolutionary views; their model is "the" creationist position.
The theory of evolution is provably correct, and the proof premises can be stated in fourteen words: - Mutations occur with every reproduction. (Which is why, with the exception of multiple siblings, no two organisms which have ever lived are identical. We know this from DNA analysis.) - Some mutations are beneficial for survival and reproduction. (Which should be obvious.) It is a demonstrated fact that everything which has ever lived on this planet is descended from one primordial organism which lived about four billion years ago. Given the above, the arguments made in this video are necessarily erroneous. The most common such argument is the so-called "argument from ignorance", also called "god of the gaps"; it consists of two premises, both of which are wrong: - "I don't understand how this could possibly have happened, so no one else does either, or can;" Which is silly. - "Therefore, a god must have done it." The logic error here is called "begging the question" -- assuming what you are trying to prove. Bottom line: Save your money.
I put this in the 1-star category so if you're reading all the very angry comments by the 1-star people (who claim to only deal in fact), perhaps you'll note the following: - Almost every one appeals to "science" as if it is an infallible, monolithic belief system. Is there no room for civil debate and disagreement? Are all "scientists" in 100% agreement. Of course not, otherwise there would be no exploration and debate in the scientific community. Isn't that what scientists are supposed to do? One reviewer even refers to this as an insult to Mother Nature. According to evolutionists, there is no such thing....because if there is, then they agree there is an intelligent force behind the created order. - Science has a long history of propagating wrong theories. That alone doesn't mean evolution is wrong, but it also means that appealing to "Science" as a synonym for "Truth" is naive at best and dishonest at worst. - The 1-star reviewers are not disagreeing with specific facts or intellectual arguments, but rather are resorting to broad generalizations and "ad hominem" attacks (i.e. they attack the people and their motivation, not their logical arguments). This is the weakest form of intellectual debate. - Most have a very angry tone. The scientists in this movie are not angry--they are calmly presenting their case based on facts. If most of the 1-star reviewers are Evolutionists, what do they care if some people are so "deluded"? Where is all this anger coming from? If we are just physical matter and there is no life after we die, why get so angry with someone who sees the world differently than you do? Can't they live their lives the way they choose and then be dead forever? What do they care? Actually, if they truly believe in evolution, they should see these men as weaklings who will not survive natural selection. - Shouting down your opponents is always about suppressing real debate. Wikipedia says "Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about nature and the universe. This knowledge is determined through the scientific method by experiments and observations, and may take the form of scientific facts, scientific models, or scientific theories." - The men in this movie are engaging in science. Most of the 1-star reviewers are not.
This is so bad, It was hard for me to watch it the whole way through. To think that these bright men think that Noah's Ark is more believable than evolution amazes me. And the fact that only their relilgion is the one true relilgion is the worst kind of dogma. The thing that really got to me was that they use Hitler Stallin and Mao to show how evil people are that don't believe like they do. They need to check their history books - more evil has been done in the name of religon than was ever done by those maniacs. If Pat Robertson had his way he'd make them look like beginers. I believe in evoluton and a higher power that rules us all. Not Noah's Ark, Moses parting the Red Sea or Adam being split in two. These are all most as far fetched as some of greek mythology. I just wish people would use common sense.
I am amazed at some of the ridiculous comments these "Ph.D" individuals have come up with. I also love how they are all simply referred to as "Ph.D" with absolutely no reference as the what they have a Ph.D in. Each statement these individuals make goes against current doctrines being taught in the real science classes today. I am sure of this because I am a Nutritional Science major and have taken my fair share of true science related classes. Videos like this only take us backwards in understanding.
Unless you consider this as fiction, this is some of the silliest rubbish you could watch. Anything but, science.
I find it highly insulting to Mother Nature to deny the incredible feat she has accomplished. Our ancestors were able to survive despite all the odds against it & we don't even give them the credit they deserve. These are your relatives, why would you insult your family like this? By denying evolution, you deny your family.
The only reason these people are trying to discredit evolution is because they want to hold onto their Adam & Eve story! Do you people even realize that it won't make creation any more plausible?
