Discredits Nova as a Science Series
6 January 2009 | by zubdogSee all my reviews

This show is entertaining and informative, but not at all science and as such it should never have aired under the "Nova" series. More specifically, the show documents a particular religious view and interpretation of the bible's old testament. The "scientific" evidence used to back the interpretation presented is nearly entirely ethnocentric and in some cases the producers simply mis-state facts (i.e. lie) seemingly on the grounds of religious interpretation. This unfortunately does a disservice to the public that will in all likelihood regard it as scientific and fair.

Again the show is hugely entertaining, but it is not science nor scientific. Audiences should keep this in mind when watching.
