If I had to compare our film to a car, it would be a suburban.
It’s sorta long; it doesn’t go too quickly; and it carries a whole lot of people and stuff in it. Sure, it can be annoying in a parking lot. But when you need one, a suburban does exactly what it was designed to do: transport everything together in a nice, convenient, comfortable way.
When I was in the planning stage, I spent a lot of time thinking through how I should address an enormously complex subject that included many other topics. I realized evolutionary theory is like the nine-headed hydra; you can cut off a head, but it grows back as you’re struggling with the others.
Dr. Kurt Wise explained it to me this way. He said the power of evolutionary thinking is that it is presented as a convergence of evidence. It’s not just one thing pointing in one direction, it’s many things pointing in the same direction. Evolutionists will hold up rocks, fossils, radioactive decay, natural selection, genetics, starlight, and many more things to argue that everything supports their view.
Of course, when you start digging into any one of these areas, you realize that not everything in that particular field is so supportive. If you’re like most people, though, you don’t have time to research even one area, much less the dozen or so others that are out there.
What do you do?
Designed for You
This film is designed for you. It’s a little longer than most documentaries to get everything in (100 minutes); it doesn’t go too fast; and it carries a dozen and one really smart scientists who explain all sorts of important and interesting things along the way.
As the film progresses, these men explain the basic issues that make up the current evolutionary synthesis. They examine a lot of evidence and give a lot of interpretations. They then explain what they see around them in light of the history recorded in Genesis. It’s a lot of material, but then there are a lot of heads out there.
When I showed it to my 13-year-old daughter (the one it was made for), she gave her teenage seal-of-approval for each section (recommending small edits here and there, of course). This means that if you and your kids want to understand Creation and the Flood in response to evolutionary thinking, this is the film for you.
My goal is pretty straightforward. I wanted to take much of the evidence used for evolutionary thinking, break it apart, turn it over, then re-assemble it in a more complete and effective way within the historical framework of Genesis.
Not surprisingly, the evidence fits better within that framework. In fact, when you look at all the pieces together, you realize there is a much greater convergence of evidence for Creation and the Flood. My hope is that, by the end of the film, you and your kids will see the world in a completely new way.
