Awesome Science is a great new DVD series from Compel Media hosted by genuinely likeable 14-year old host, Noah Justice, exploring science from a Biblical Creationist worldview. This series is aimed at children and teens, but equally appeals to adults. As Noah Justice points out they have the “science that most kids would really, really like” and “reinforce Biblical truths that have been lost in today’s media culture.”
Creator Kyle Justice says he was inspired to produce programming with a focus on scientific evidences for biblical creation after hearing creation scientist Dr. Donald Chittick speak at a church camp in 1986. Since then, he has worked on various projects for ESPN, The Outdoor Channel, and National Geographic. Creationist audiences may also be familiar with his work on “The X-Nilo Show,” produced in association with Answers in Genesis. His experience and expertise really make the Awesome Science DVD series shine.
The first episode concentrates on the Grand Canyon, clearly and unapologetically presenting the truth of creation and catastrophism. Compel Media’s Kyle Justice is convinced that this series fills a pressing need in the next generation’s education:
“You can’t pick and choose what parts of the Bible are true or not… You’ve got to have a baseline to operate from, and since God made the world, the Bible is our baseline we go to for everything. We are losing our youth at the Middle School and High School levels because they are not given enough evidence for the areas of creation and the Flood. When faced with evolution as “fact” and they don’t have the tools the refute evolution, they start to doubt their faith in the Bible. The evidence is out there, but there aren’t too many ways for youth to see it. This series is the start of many series for youth to give the evidence they need to refute the lies of evolution and show them they can believe with confidence that science and the Bible do agree.”
One of the things that really impressed me was how meaty this DVD is on the science end. Though the information is related in an enjoyable and easy-to-understand format, I didn’t hear about some of the things you relate in this video until I took college geology. Master Books took the time to have the content reviewed by Dr. Andrew Snelling of Answers in Genesis to make sure these videos are as accurate possible.
This DVD doesn’t skimp on extras. There are productions stills, a blooper reel and a lot more to explore after you watch the videos.
Homeschoolers and other educators will note that these educational videos are divided into handy chapters and that they are available in DVD format from AnswersinGenesis.org, NewLeafPublishingGroup.com and from Amazon Instant Video.
I enthusiastically recommend the Awesome Science series.
