Well-made movie, with great cinematography.  Educational, with loads of facts, illustrations, and locales.

Whether you’re a believer or not, this film tells a lot about how the scientific left (my term) rules “science.” Actual science starts with an idea, then seeks to test whether or not that premise is true. For hundreds of years, the “scientific” elite have instead begun with a philosophy, and any theory which does not match their view is ridiculed, and its proponents banished from the public eye. In much the same way Galileo was persecuted by the religious for his theories, today those who posit that (still unproven, by the way) Evolution makes no scientific sense and has no proofs are ridiculed and persecuted.

That said, this film is not going to convince an unbeliever to cross the road to belief. That takes an epiphany, a Saul-of-Tarsus moment, which is spiritual in nature, not logical and based on proofs.

This is not meant either to distract or to educate, but if you’re interested…

Genesis 2:10 (NKJV) says, “Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it parted and became four riverheads.”  I got wondering just what “went out” means.  Apparently, in the Hebrew it means only “went out,” with no certainty that the “River of God” (as some call it) actually originated in Eden, which has always been my assumption.  If its source is there, that places it somewhere in the area west of Mt. Ararat.

Other theorists think that Eden is not at what was then the source of at least two of these rivers, but at their confluence, in southern Iraq.  In this scenario, one of the four rivers is thought to run where the Red Sea is now.

It seems logical to me to stick with my original assumption that Genesis, in saying “went out” and “from there” and “became,” meant that Eden encompassed the source of the originating river.

What do you think?
