The film is an introduction: Our goal is to give you an overview of a broad range of topics alongside specific evidence for Creation and the Flood. It’s okay if you don’t understand everything the first time you hear it. God created a beautiful world that is very complex; even the greatest scientists understand only a fraction of it. We want you to see that when you study the world in light of Genesis—even in an introductory way—it intersects with the events recorded in the Bible.
The film compares two views of history: Many people think scientific facts speak for themselves. They do not. Every point of data must be put into an interpretive framework, or paradigm, to give it meaning. Although there are different types of paradigms, the most important are historical: what actually happened in the past? Currently, there are two primary paradigms of history: one defined by natural processes occurring slowly over billions of years, the other defined by recent, direct actions of God as recorded in the Bible. In the film, we call these the ‘conventional’ and ‘Genesis’ paradigms. Some Christians have tried to merge these two views into a hybrid view where God used long ages to form the world. To do this, they must de-historicize key events in the Bible using various interpretational methods, then replace those Biblical events with events from the conventional timeline. This seems to be an unnecessary compromise. The history ecorded in Genesis is sufficient to explain all that we see in the world around us.
The film presents a unified argument: The challenge some people have in understanding these topics is seeing how they fit together. Many intelligent people have spent a long time developing the conventional paradigm; it is understandable why so many accept it. We think, however, that when one looks at the evidence as a whole, starting with the text of Genesis, then moving through the rocks, the fossils, the genetic code, the animals, the stars, the artifacts, and the nature of culture, it is much more reasonable to view the events of Genesis as real history.
