Movie: Genesis: Paradise Lost
(Formerly known as Genesis 3D)

Click for movie review

After five years in the making, the "Genesis of Genesis" movie is ready to go! Available in either 3D or 2D, and is now showing on a second date in some theaters. NOTE: if the movie is showing in 3D, it will say "3D" prominently on the movie thumbnail. Some theaters are not showing the 3D version at all, so check which version you're buying tickets for!

Movie: Genesis: Paradise Lost - this is the thumbnail for the 3D version
This is what a thumbnail looks like for the 3D version

The movie's website lists 14 scholars in science and Scripture as interviewees, most of whom work for Answers in Genesis. Computer-generated animals and people cover the first chapters of the Book of Genesis in the Bible, and yes, that includes dinosaurs!

with Mr. Dan Mikal, Sr.

See and hear about two of the most unusual protein groups in God’s created ‘tool kit’ of the cell. Moving vital resources within the cell is the purpose of these special motor proteins. Their unusual designs and functions literally make one laugh when seen in action. Come enjoy another look at one of God’s most unusual molecular creations -- you will hardly believe it!

Dan Mikal has presented over 700 lectures in the public classroom to more than 4,000 students, over 34 years of teaching Biology. He taught the Advanced Placement (AP) Biology curriculum for 20 years at Antioch Community High School. He also has presented Biblical Creationism at numerous retreats, workshops, Sunday school classrooms and churches over the past 35 years.

Take your family or group to the Field for the "Evolving Planet" exhibit! You can go anytime by yourselves, or go alone and have a follow-up meeting with an MCF speaker, to debrief your group. Click the link for more info, including 2 downloadable booklets to help you think about the exhibits from a scientific/creationist perspective. Answers in Genesis also has a good article on the Evolving Planet exhibit. We have 2 download guides that you can take with you:

1: Critical Thinking GuideTrifold brochure in high resolution: 2MB, so it prints nicely, but downloads slowly, OR try the 247KB version, which downloads faster but doesn't print as nicely.
