Dear Hank: We do indeed live in perilous times and as Christians we cannot remain silent and inactive. Today’s battle for the mind will largely determine our future as a nation, and we dare not sit idly by. Please send me the following:

‘fight the good fight’ of faith during these trying times

“Darwinism provided an explanation for the appearance of design and argued that there is no designer. But that doesn’t explain the biological evidence. I believe things look designed because they are designed, and the designer is not natural selection.”


LIVING WATERS: Intelligent Design in the Oceans of the Earth is a fascinating exploration of life in the liquid universe that covers more than 70 percent of our planet.

Filmed in Canada, Bermuda, Polynesia, Mexico, and the United States, this remarkable documentary celebrates the beauty and brilliance of the biological systems that make life in the oceans possible. Extraordinary cinematography and computer animation open stunning windows of discovery, including:

  • A spectacular tour of a dolphin’s internal sonar system — a mechanism so powerful and precise, the animals can locate and capture small fish buried in the sand.
  • The magnetic compass embedded in the head of a sea turtle — a biological wonder that guides these long-distance travelers as they journey across thousands of miles of open sea.
  • A Pacific salmon’s amazing sense of smell — an elaborate navigational aid that leads the fish back from years in the ocean to the gravel stream bed where it was born.
  • The power and majestic grace of a humpback whale — a creature whose existence defies the theory of Darwinian evolution.

Each leg of this cinematic odyssey is highlighted by cutting edge research and compelling evidence for purpose and design. LIVING WATERS is an unforgettable film that challenges scientific materialism with the timeless truth about the origin and complexity of life on Earth.

“The probability of life originating at random is so utterly minuscule as to make it absurd.” —Sir Fred Hoyle, Physicist

ORIGIN: With spectacular computer animation and cutting-edge research, ORIGIN examines a question that has baffled science for centuries: How did life on Earth begin? Today, most researchers insist it arose through simple chemistry that — without direction of plan — transformed inanimate matter into the first living cell. Yet, this explanation is devoid of evidence and unsatisfying, even to its most ardent supporters.

As ORIGIN exposes the flaws of materialistic theories, you’ll travel through a molecular universe to encounter extraordinary biological engineering fundamental to the survival of every organism that has ever existed. Engineering that points clearly to intelligence and mind. Ultimately, ORIGIN transcends science to probe the deepest mysteries of the human experience: Where did we come from and why are we here?

“How life began is not just an apologetics issue; it is the apologetics issue because how one views his origin story
will ultimately determine how he lives his life. That’s why I’m so excited that our friends at Illustra Media have
outdone themselves with their film ORIGIN: Unlocking the Mystery of Life. It combines top-drawer scholarship
with stunning artistry in what is destined to be a classic.”

Unlocking the Mystery of Life DVD 

In 1859, Charles Darwin published, On the Origin of Species. In it, he argued that all of life on earth was the product of undirected natural processes. Time, chance, and natural selection. Since Darwin, biologists have relied on such processes to account for the origin of living things. Yet today, this approach is being challenged as never before. Unlocking the Mystery of Life is the story of contemporary scientists who are advancing a powerful, but controversial, idea—the theory of “intelligent design.” It is a theory based upon compelling biochemical evidence. Through state-of-the-art computer animation, Unlocking the Mystery of Life transports you into the interior of the living cell to explore systems and machines that bear the unmistakable hallmarks of design.

Metamorphosis DVD 

Throughout history, butterflies have fascinated artists and philosophers, scientists and schoolchildren with their profound mystery and beauty. In Metamorphosis you will explore their remarkable world as few ever have before.

Spectacular photography, computer animation and magnetic resonance imaging open once hidden doors to every stage of a butterfly’s life-cycle. From an egg the size of a pinhead to a magnificent flying insect. It is a transformation so incredible biologists have called it “butterfly magic.”

The butterfly’s superbly engineered body is magnified hundreds of times to reveal compound eyes made of thousands of individual lenses, wings covered with microscopic solar panels, and navigational systems that unerringly guide Monarch butterflies on their annual migration from Canada to Mexico.

How did these extraordinary creatures come into being? Are they the products of a blind, undirected process? Or were they designed by an intelligence cause?

Filmed in North, Central, and South America, Metamorphosis is an unforgettable documentary filled with the joys of discovery and wonder.

Flight DVD

FLIGHT is a unique wildlife documentary. An exploration of the animal kingdom from a perspective ignored by television and the scientific establishment. For instead of presenting a worldview based upon the blind, undirected process of Darwinian evolution, FLIGHT offers a compelling look at the design and purpose woven throughout the fabric of life on Earth.

FLIGHT is highlighted by technical and artistic excellence comparable to the BBC’s Planet Earth and the Academy Award winning March of the Penguins. Photographed in North America, Peru, England, Greenland and Antarctica, the film combines stunning images and computer animation with cutting-edge research and an original musical score to celebrate birds and their incomparable ability to live in the skies.
