The God Question: A TV Series

Spread the love

The God Question (website here), a TV series bringing together world renowned contributors on both sides of the debate on God and science, asks whether there is design in the Universe. The series features figures of note in the intelligent design community, including Stephen Meyer, Douglas Axe, Bill Dembski, John Lennox, and our own Denyse O’Leary. In addition, the series features leading figures on the other side of the debate, including Peter Atkins, Michael Ruse, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett and many others. For a complete list of contributors, see this page.

Divided into three programs, dealing with “The Cosmos“, “Life and Evolution“, and “Mind and Consciousness“, the series is spectacularly produced and commendably provides a fair and balanced discussion of the issues it unpacks.

Wherever you currently stand on “The God Question” or the question of evolution and design, prepare to be challenged by this TV show, which has now been produced as a DVD (which you can purchase here) and comes with a companion study guide for small group discussion.

    But if the science is already settled as Darwinists constantly insist why are these leading atheists even sullying their names in the series???

    I have purchased The God Question videos and indeed, they are excellent. Be aware that they may not play on some DVD players, since they are recorded in the PAL format. They would not play on my Panasonic Blu-ray player but would play on an older Denon player.

    The pastor of my church has scheduled the videos for an adult forum next Spring.

    This was apparently necessary because US television distribution is controlled by the Darwin Lobby. His tendrils reach far and wide.

    I am doubtful Design Proponents are intellectually “challenged” by anything.
