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.

Dreadfully Misguided and Deceitful
10 July 2010 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Nothing in this video is scientifically valid in the slightest, which is why none of the proponents of 'Intelligent Design' have ever had an article published in a peer-reviewed journal on the subject. ID just doesn't stand up to close scientific scrutiny. Much of what is said by people like Behe in this video had already been thoroughly refuted by science long before this video was made. The reason you will never hear about any of this from ID proponents is because they don't follow the progress of science. When confronted with dozens of papers that refute his work at the Dover Trial (where ID was shot down)Michael Behe admitted that he'd never seen any of it and had to adjourn the court so he could read them. They defend ID as religiously as they defended creationism back in the 80's. It's just simply pseudo-scientific garbage. This 'movie' is absolute trash.
