Response to a previous review by blackhole921
2 November 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have this documentary on DVD, and having watched it perhaps five or six times, I can only conclude that previous reviewer "Blackhole" must have been watching a different video. At NO point in the video does Timothy Ferris (or anyone else) say "This only proves the existence of 'Alah!'" or anything even remotely like it. He mentions Allah (sic) only during a short parenthetical segment in which he discusses the historical antagonism between church and religion regarding creation stories. But at no point does he even imply that because the universe arose from zero volume there must have been a "creator", nor does he refer in any detail to the Koran, or the Bible, beyond a passing reference to various creation mythologies from different cultural traditions. In fact, if memory serves, there is no reference to a "creator" at all.

Much of the information presented in this film comes from direct on-screen interviews with some of the most reputable cosmologists and astrophysicists in the business, Stephen Hawking, Alan Sandage, Murray Gell-Mann, John Archibald Wheeler (who, ironically, first coined the term "blackhole" in reference to collapsed massive stars) et al.

Finally, the first ten minutes of THIS film is NOT taken up with a discussion of the big bang at all, rather it covers the history of scientific thought and the scientific method, and then gets into atomic theory as a starting point for an examination of the origins of matter.

I don't know what film blackhole921 is reviewing in his comments, but it certainly wasn't this one.
