Join this surprising journey back to Darwin’s Eden—the mysterious Galápagos Islands—and uncover their true secrets.



At the far end of the world, there exists a strange paradise, steeped in controversy. Join this surprising journey back to Darwin’s Eden—the mysterious Galápagos Islands—and uncover their true secrets.

The Mysterious Islands is a one-of-a-kind documentary, highly endorsed by Answers in Genesis. It is the story of a teen and a group of researchers who embark on an amazing adventure in search of clues that will expose the truth in a centuries-old mystery. This enlightening film includes spectacular cinematography shot at what some call “ground zero” of Darwinism. It takes viewers to the home of salt-sneezing iguanas, on top of volcanic craters, deep beneath the ocean waves, among hundreds of white-tip sharks, and beside giant tortoises that can live more than 150 years.

Seen through the eyes of 16-year-old Joshua Phillips (who joins his father Doug Phillips, of Vision Forum Ministries) and noted researchers like Dr. John Morris of the Institute for Creation Research, this film brings a bold and fresh perspective to the idea of evolution. It answers the question: “Is Galápagos a laboratory for long ages, or a testimony to the biblical account of creation?” while taking the viewer on a rich visual tour of the beautiful islands and the ocean that surrounds them!

Double-disk set. 90-minute full-length documentary, plus over an hour more on the feature-rich DVD bonus disc.

As I viewed this video I was amazed at the beauty of the Galapagos. …This production contains spectacular cinematography. It is both awe inspiring and educational. But most important the viewer will truly understand the flaws in Darwin’s ideas while at the same time realizing the truth of the Genesis account. …The incredible majesty of the Creator God is obvious!

—Dr. Tommy Mitchell
