This film does a nice job of providing evidence that the Earth/Universe is not necessarily a random accident. The whole point of this DVD (and others like it) is to provide alternate viewpoints for people who believe that everything we experience and see in life is the result of accident and blind forces. It presents that perspective in a very non-offensive (to people who tend to react negatively to this type of thing) way. You are allowed to draw your own conclusions.
The authors clearly believe in Intelligent Design. The question for anyone watching is "Based on what I've seen, is it possible that perspective is true, or at least has some merit." If so, you should go on to examine other, similar DVDs (check out Lee Strobel). For full disclosure, I do believe in Intelligent Design (after reading about the matter for a couple of years). I think it takes a lot more 'faith' to believe that all the universe and life is the result of 'accidents' that have odds so impossibly remote, you'd never accept them if it were a different subject. I highly recommend this.
