Whoah, enlightening., 29 May 2002
Author: winstonsmith_84 from Oceania

I saw this about 1 year ago, and always think about it. This scientific documentary regarding cell death is great because it teaches us the fundamental truths and microscopic details about life. Aside from presenting lots of professors, analyists, and the like, the narrative of the story presents an overall feel that left me in awe at the end. It makes you think. If the whole world saw this, I wonder what people would be talking about...

It's funny how science makes some people disbelieve in God. I don't really know what I believe in, but I left this video thinking... All this science shows us is this: that something spectacular, and beautiful, creates life.... and ends it too.
