Nine Documentaries & Presentations on Atheism, Intelligent Design, Cultural Marxism, Old Earth, Young Earth, and Evidence for God's Existence

Truth, truth, truth.  It is the most important thing, knowing what the truth is.  How can we know the truth?  By learning.  Despite the post-modernists who would have us throw away our books and trust them that "absolutely everything is relative" that is the making of ignorance.  I refuse to be ignorant.  And I love learning.  

There is truth.  There are objective truths.  I know that.  The journey is not in vain.  Learning, journeying, wandering, it's magical.  I love studying, I love reading, I love watching videos, listening to audio presentations, and on and on and on.

I don't know about you, but I'm an audio-visual learner.  As much as I love reading books, I probably love presentations like these even more!  

Let's be frank right from the start: Many of us need to get educated.  We haven't been educated well, especially in public education.  So we've got to educate ourselves.  Thankfully we live in the Information Age.  It's all at our fingertips on the internet.  Thank God for that! 

These nine videos are "must watch" in my humble opinion.  There is some very eye opening information in these presentations.  Plenty of hard truth to take in about the world around us.  And plenty of hope too.  

Just as important as video learning are books.  At the end of this page I've included a long list of books I highly recommend as well.  

Enjoy!  Learning is fun.  Don't let the high school nightmare or college dissuade you from private study.  I love learning, I love studying topics that interest me.  Cultivate that interest in yourself.  Dig in and enjoy, ideas are incredible!

Miracles: Is Belief in the Supernatural Irrational? | John Lennox at Harvard 
One of the most prestigious universities in the world, with one of the most gifted communicators.  Great place to start to explore God, Christianity, History, Science, and Logic.   

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, Ben Stein
This was a very eye opening experience to learn about the Darwinian dictatorship operating in the United States academic establishment.  Once again we see the mainstream media feeding the status quo, and the academic establishment absolutely shutting out any mention of intelligent design.  Fascinating, definitely a must watch!

Why are we in Decline? Cultural Marxism by Various
This documentary is all politics, but it's vital to understanding why the USA has gotten away from Christian values and how we can help bring it back.  It's very important for Christians to understand how far the USA has drifted from the Constitution and how marxism is being smuggled in through culture.  Please forgive the image of Miley Cyrus, but it's certainly a stark reminder of how the morals and values of the USA have dissolved in the past 30 years.

Evolution vs. God Documentary by Ray Comfort
Have we been indoctrinated into evolutionary beliefs without really understanding what "evolution" is or if it's even a credible theory?  Ray Comfort digs into evolution and God.  

The Resurrection Argument that Changed a Generation of Scholars
A very powerful and comprehensive examination of the evidence for the crucifixion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ by the renowned scholar Gary Habermas.

God of Wonders: Scientists Prove God's Existence through Science
An excellent documentary on evidence for God in nature.  This documentary takes a more Christian perspective starting off and approaches nature's complexity and wonder as signs of God's presence in the natural world.


Creation Seminar, Kent Hovind
Fascinating seminar by the controversial young earther Kent Hovind.  I debated as to if I ought to include this presentation by Kent Hovind.  But I wanted to make sure I included the "young earth" view.  In any case, Kent Hovind is a powerful presenter and makes excellent arguments through the Creation Seminar.

Zeitgeist Refuted
With the popularity of the Zeitgeist movement, it's important to take a look at the claims in that documentary in regard to religion.  Do modern scholars agree on certain things about the manuscripts of the Bible?  Did the Zeitgeist movie make a lot of claims that can't be substantiated in fact?  Find out for yourself.

A Christian Manifesto by Francis Schaeffer
This powerful presentation by the late Dr. Francis Schaeffer is an oldie but a goodie.  Dr. Schaeffer could see the decline of America as it was happening in the 1970s and 1980s.  He rung the warning bells to the future generations, but sadly his cries were not acted upon and we now find ourselves in the desperate situation we're in today economically, politically, and spiritually. 

Recommended Books
This recommended reading list includes books on philosophy, Christian apologetics, Christianity, worship, science, intelligent design, logic, political theory, politics, God, psychology, and society.  I highly recommend these books for personal study for the intelligent Christian of today.
