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.

Quotes

Paul Nelson: When I look at molecular machines, or the incredibly complex process by which cells divide, I want to ask is it possible that these things had an intelligence behind them? That there was a plan or a purpose to this structure. Science ought to be a search for the truth about the world. Now we shouldn't prejudge what might be true. We shouldn't say, I don't like that explanation so I'm going to put it to one side. Rather, when we come to a puzzle in nature, we ought to bring to that puzzle every ...

Excellent film!
20 December 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Excellent! That is if you enjoy filling young impressionable minds with lies and logical fallacies! Get this film if you want to learn how to lie to the mass public. On a more serious note. If you really want to learn something go to your local library and pick up a biology book and flip to the evolution by natural selection section. This will provide you with real facts. Creation or ID as the liars would like you to think it's named, has no (read it, Zero) supporting facts. What wonderful world we live in where evangelical fundamentals from American can spread their crap to other countries with such ease. Go lie to yourselves instead of to innocent children.
