Questioning Darwin DVD

SKU ID #600377
$19.98
Literal and creationist interpretation of the Bible is the fastest-growing branch of Christianity in the U.S. and around the world, with 46% of Americans believing the Genesis account of creation is the literal truth. Directed by award-winning British documentarian Antony Thomas (HBO’s For Neda), Questioning Darwin takes an in-depth look at the views of creationist Christians, who reject Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, while also examining how Darwin handled the question of God as he developed his theory of natural selection in the mid-1800s. Featuring interviews with Darwin historians and biographers, ministers and creationist Christians, and Darwin’s own words through his letters and writings, the film is a balanced examination of a 150-year debate, which has only increased in the last two decades with the rise of evangelical Christianity in the U.S. The film also illuminates little-known facts about Darwin’s life, placing one of the greatest scientific minds in historical context. By turns thought provoking and infuriating, Questioning Darwin will inspire debate among believers on both sides of the issue.

    Comments about this product:

    I first saw QD on HBO and kept it for a while on my DVR. Once I became aware that HBO had it available on DVD, I knew I wanted a copy for my personal media library. Thanks!

    I hope that HBO will provide other programs in DVD.

      Comments about this product:

      This is an excellent explanation of how science overpowers superstitution. Creationism is on the rise with the film portraying the conflict and struggle science has met in the 21st century. Excellent for college classes since many students have had exposure to evolution theory but know little about creationism. Can generate good discussion but for those who are religious, those who present the video should offer a disclaimer: that creationism comes off as a fairy tale with its outrageous claims. This is an issue of church vs state and with some states opting for the newer form of creationism, intelligent design, along with textbooks advocating equal time, young people need to know how to understand this conflict.
