I was recently given the opportunity to watch and review Is Genesis History. This film was recently out in theaters, and it is now available for you to purchase on DVD. The film features more than a dozen scientists who explain how the world intersects with the biblical account of creation in the book of Genesis. The Film lays out the research and scholarly foundation for a true 6 day creation of our very existence.
We begin with a reminiscence style story where a man is talking about his memories of riding horses with his dad through amazingly beautiful scenery. He points out how the canyon he is in is very much like the Grand Canyon. He questions how long it would take a little stream like the one flowing through the canyon to carve out such a deep crevice. He mentions the rock layers, and how some rocks are dated to be in the millions of years old range. Then he states something startling. He says that the canyon and rocks found within are actually younger than he is! Actually, they are younger than ME! The canyon is a result of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens. This storytelling perfectly lays out the argument for a global flood, 6 day creation, and how it could all be possible.
In college, I took a class called "Sociology of Science and Technology. This class frequently pointed out shifting paradigms in science and theories. It was once scientific belief that the world was flat. It was once scientific belief that the sun revolved around the earth. It was once scientific belief that one could determine the psychology of another by feeling the imperfections and "knots" in a person's skull. It was once believed that criminal or deviant behavior was biological, and thus could be predicted by a close inspection of a person's cranial size, or other physical attributes. It was once scientific belief that Pluto was the 9th planet, and it was also scientific belief that there couldn't possible be any other planets in the solar system-but now there's research that even threatens that previous thought. Paradigms are the circumstances surrounding the evidence, and how that evidence is interpreted.
The conventional, scientific paradigm for creation is illustrated in the above graphic screen shot taken from the film. A big bang followed by billions of years of growth and evolution.
The Genesis paradigm is different, and focuses on intelligent design by a Creator (God) in only 6 days. This is the basis of the film. To take both sides, compare and contrast, and prove the Genesis account to be accurate.
Overall, I found this film to be excellent. The arguments presented are sound, and well researched and explained. It "makes sense." I have seen the same arguments presented in other ways that just made the argument sound ludicrous, and this is certainly not the case with this film. The experts are well educated, and well spoken. The cases are presented matter of factly, and a very well planned, well stated argument is made on behalf of the Genesis account. After watching this film, it is very easy to see just exactly how the Bible's account of creation just makes sense. Overall, I highly recommend this!
