Most of the views expressed by scientists in the series are presented clearly. I am intrigued by the debate between creationists and evolutionists, as both bring something to the table. It is worth hearing differing interpretations of the geographic, astronomic and historical evidence. I believe that the scriptures of the worlds religions have elements of truth that shouldn't be ignored.
It would seem to me that a 'true' scientist, whether secular or religious, should do their best to consider and weigh all evidence and be willing to go where the evidence leads. For if truth is what they seek, they should not be close minded or afraid to follow the crumbs to where they lead. Too many times I have heard both sides disregard each others arguments simply because it challenges their world views.
It seems the more the sciences uncover, the more complex and mysterious life becomes. If there is a divine creator or simply evolution void of one, evidence will continue to lead us in the direction of truth.
Therefor, regarding this CD collection and others like it, it is refreshing to hear what appears to be well thought out discussions, as we are certainly liberally exposed with one dominant view in the public arena and can only find differing views and information with by making the effort to purchase CD's such as these.
Unlocking the Mystery of Life and Privileged Planet are very good quality documentaries; Darwin's Dilemma is okay, but just not quite as good as the other two. All in all, this is a good series for any home video library.
I have to say that this 3 DVD series had very compelling scientific evidence that leaves me siding with an intelligent creator as opposed to what I was taught in school about evolution and Darwin's theories.
The information was pointed out a little slow - I would have liked the videos to have been more dynamic and entertaining but overall I really enjoyed them.
This set of DVDs contains some very key works. Each DVD covers a section of thought that has been completely swept under the carpet by the "new Scientists" that simply want to ignore critical arguments that deserve an honest investigation before concluding "the facts".
It is nice to see the other side of every argument. We don't often get to see the other side of the creation/evolution arguments in our media and publications. This set gives you a good review of science which would otherwise be ignored by your college professor or the typical Nova and PBS presentation. It is comforting to know also that many very respectable thinkers have come to the same conclusion that life needed tremendous "planning" by SOMEONE! I would recommend this set for anyone that wants to see information for the case for intelligent design. This is also good for any church group and any college students that want the facts. This is Simple to follow and an interesting presentation.
This was a very good purchase. Two of the DVDs were excellent. The other (Darwin's Dilemna) was good but just talking heads. I would recommend it for people looking for more information on intelligent design.
Love these DVDs. Very well done. The series gives a lot of solid information that you don't hear outside of Christian circles. So many people want to believe that there is no God... no creator. It's sad they won't look at the evidence
All 3 DVDs are very challenging to the predominant view that we all arrived here through blind evolution and provide more evidence for intelligent design and/or theistic evolution.
They Mystery of Life DVD was the most fascinating with detailed graphics showing what goes in within the nucleus of a cell when genes generate the proteins that are essential for the functioning of life. The other two DVDs are also well worth watching though.
Buy this if you want to find out more evidence for intelligent design or if you feel that evolution was not just by chance and there could also be a designer behind it.
The DVDs are region 0 so should play in other countries outside the US if your DVD player and/or TV supports NTSC.
As a Bible believing Christian,I have always known that God is... The Great I AM. He has always been, and will always Be. It was very helpful to me that I had a condensed,apologetic to share with my friends and co workers who aren't believers,...yet.I have found that if you can show God's creation, as if it is a precisely built work, perhaps like a watch, that it would be easier a consept to grasp. I think this video does a great job in doing just that and that there is a God behind it all, with every detail in place,balanced and ticking along!
