Incredible Creatures That Defy Evolution III


www.explorationfilms.com 800-964-0439

This 80-minute DVD alternates between interviews with Dr. Job Martin, a former evolutionist, and film footage of the following animals: Lampsylis mussel, horse, ostrich, hummingbird, dog, manatee, elephant, butterfly, cuttlefish, penguin, and Milopina bee. Two additional segments offer information on human vestigial organs and design theory.

Dr. Martin offers a fascinating look at the mysteries and marvels of nature. Example after example demonstrates incredible designs in nature that evolution cannot explain. Other than a short segment where Dr. Martin reveals his literal six-day, young earth interpretation of Genesis, this DVD would appeal to all those who believe in a Creator or "designer."

A lively host uses humor to transition from topic to topic (e.g., donning a tuxedo for the penguin segment or eating vanilla ice cream for the Milopina bee segment). These attempts are a bit exaggerated, and older children (and their parents) might find him annoying. However, this DVD has more talking and less film footage than my family usually prefers, so you might appreciate the comical transitions that are designed to hold the attention of younger viewers.

This DVD certainly shows how evolution cannot explain the incredible complexity in even a seemingly simple creature like a mussel. I am always looking for resources to encourage scientific skepticism in my children, so I was happy to find this series. An excellent resource for homeschool families!
