Storyline

Unlocking the Mystery of Life represents a unique programming opportunity for local stations. Its broadcast release coincides with the 50th anniversary of one of the greatest scientific breakthroughs in history-James Watson and Francis Crick's discovery that the DNA molecule carries hereditary information in the form of a code that many scientists have likened to computer software or a written language. This discovery (announced on April 25,1953) sparked a scientific revolution. But it also left a fundamental question unanswered. Where did the information in DNA come from? How did the software in the cell arise? Unlocking the Mystery of Life explores these questions through the stories of a growing number of scientists who no longer believe that natural selection or chemistry, alone, can explain life's origin. Instead, they think that the microscopic world of the cell provides evidence of purpose and design in nature. Written by Anonymous

Plot Summary | Add Synopsis

Taglines:

Is life on Earth the product of purely undirected processes like time, chance and natural selection? Or, can the origin and diversity of living organisms be traced to an intelligent cause? Unlocking the Mystery of Life explores these timeless questions and presents compelling evidence to support an idea that could revolutionize scientific thought - the theory of intelligent design.

Great Evolution/Intelligent Design Video
1 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent source of information for the theory of intelligent design (ID). The video provides clear and easy to understand arguments for ID and points out the gaps in evolutionary theory that cannot account for the origin-of-life on earth. The video includes interviews with leading scientists and scholars from various fields of expertise. The video also provides some historical information about Charles Darwin and his journey on the HMS Beagle. It is packed with beautiful scenes of wildlife that make it entertaining as well as educational. The bonus features include a question and answer section, library references, web links, and biographical sketches about each scientist/scholar. This is a must have for all of those who are interested the origin-of-life argument and those that declare to follow the evidence wherever it leads. I would strongly recommend this for all adults and students at the high school level and above.
