Learn little-known facts about Charles Darwin.These DVDs investigate the man, his science, and his legacy.

This year is the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth. His ideas are both highly esteemed and fiercely debated. But how much do we really know about the man and his science? A new three-part DVD series from Answers in Genesis entitled The Evolution of Darwin provides important answers and insights.

What was his view of God, and how did that view impact his research? What did Darwin’s contemporaries think of his work? More importantly, how have Darwin’s ideas shaped our modern culture?

In the first DVD, His Life, medical internist Dr. Tommy Mitchell reveals events and people who helped form Darwin’s faith and science. For example, Darwin considered a career in medicine, then thought about the clergy before becoming a naturalist. Interestingly, during his life-changing voyage on the HMS Beagle, more of his notes related to geology (1,383 pages), than biology (only 368 pages). Belief shared by that the earth formed by gradual processes greatly contributed to Darwin’s views.

Understand the ideas put forward by Darwin from a biblical perspective and see what influenced his thinking.

In the second DVD, His Science, biologist Dr. David Menton takes a close look at Darwin’s scientific ideas. In answering the question, “Is belief in evolution necessary for understanding biology?” Menton responds with a resounding no.

The video goes on to explain, in layman’s terms, how the concept of natural selection has been misunderstood. It’s actually a description of slight changes within each created kind; but Darwin believed minor changes of features, like beaks, could ultimately convert one kind of animal into a radically different kind of animal with new features.

In the final DVD, His Impact, Answers in Genesis president Ken Ham examines the impact of rejecting the history in Genesis. By replacing the Bible’s history with his own ideas, Darwin fueled the fires of ridicule about the Bible’s authority in every area.

Through this resource, viewers will see the impact that wrong ideas about the Bible continue to make on the church, the scientific community, and the culture as a whole.

The series offers a straightforward solution—return to the authority of the Word of God, beginning with creation.
