Evolution's Achilles' Heels Review by Shecki Bernard

Creation Ministries International
PO Box 350
Powder Springs, GA 30127

Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels presents evidence of Creation in eight areas of science used by evolutionists to support their theory. This resource is available in DVD ($19) and blue-ray ($25), as well as book ($14) and e-book ($10) versions. There are bulk discounts available. There is also a free study guide you can download from their website.

Although there is nothing in the film that a younger child shouldn’t see, the comprehension level is teen to adult. Every teen, home schooled or not, would benefit from seeing this logical explanation of the points where evolution falls short, presented by 15 scientists. The DVD runs 96 minutes, and subtitles are available in 16 languages.

I enjoyed this DVD. I watched with two of my teens, and I felt the material was interesting and explained well. I walked away from it with a greater appreciation for the incredible complexity of nature, in awe of God’s handiwork. My husband came through while we were watching, stopped, and asked, “Is this movie ours? I’d like to watch it.” It draws you in.

After taking the viewer through point after point in support of creation, the film wraps up with an explanation of the reason why people are so anxious to hold onto the theory of evolution. It’s the rejection of a Creator, and the rejection of His moral code, and it affects a person’s worldview and ethics.

As a child, I knew that we didn’t believe in evolution, but my only understanding of creationism was “because the Bible says so.” This movie gives teens and adults a much deeper comprehension, and helps them defend their beliefs with science.
