What You Need To Know:

DARWIN’S DILEMMA is a remarkable, thought provoking documentary movie showing in clear factual, scientific terms that Darwin understood the primary weakness of his theory of evolution: the Cambrian Explosion. As paleontologist Stephen J. Gould says, “The fossil record had caused Darwin more grief than joy. Nothing distressed him more than the Cambrian Explosion.” Darwin fretted over the Cambrian Explosion all of his life. Very simply, the Cambrian Explosion is that period in geological history where, suddenly, a myriad of animals appeared.

DARWIN’S DILEMMA goes further by showing that the protein, the DNA, the amino acid, and other building blocks of life are impossible to create by chance. The organization of these building blocks into eyes, teeth, arms, and legs is an incredibly complex intelligent design. Today more than ever, scientists are coming up with alternatives to Darwinian evolution to account for Darwin’s dilemma. Like all of Illustra Media’s products, DARWIN’S DILEMMA is incredibly well made. From the computer animation to the interviews, it is fascinating. MOVIEGUIDE® urges everyone to get a copy and show it to their friends and family.

(BBB) Very strong moral worldview showing that Creation must have had a personal intelligence designing it, with commonly accepted dates neither affirmed nor denied that may annoy some who hold a revelation view of Creation; and, nothing else objectionable.

DARWIN’S DILEMMA is a remarkable documentary movie showing in clear factual, scientific terms that Darwin understood the primary weakness of his theory of evolution. As the paleontologist Stephen J.

Very simply, the Cambrian Explosion is that period in geological history where, suddenly, a myriad of animals appeared. As Richard Dawkins, the famous atheist, said, “It is as though they were just planted there with no previous evolutionary record.”

In the video, scientists from Cambridge and many other prestigious institutions, describe the problem of the Cambrian Explosion. If the history of life on Planet Earth was seen as if it were a 24-hour clock, at one particular point, within less than two minutes, most of the animal life forms appeared. It was as if all this happened overnight.

Surprisingly, the Chinese scientists are more honest about it. Discoveries in China in 1984 have confirmed the unique quality of the Cambrian Explosion.

Darwin himself said that the Cambrian Explosion contradicts evolution and hoped a geologist would find ancestors of the many phyla that appeared at that time.

DARWIN’S DILEMMA goes further by showing that the protein, the DNA, the amino acid, and other building blocks of life are impossible to create by chance. The organization of these building blocks into eyes, and teeth and arms and legs is an incredibly complex intelligent design. Richard Dawkins has said, “Without gradualness. . . we are back to a miracle.”
