Summary:
Evolution offers a groundbreaking and definitive view of the extraordinary impact the evolutionary process has had on our understanding of the world around us. Beginning with Darwin's revolutionary theory, this seven-part series explores all facets of evolution--the changes that spawned the tree of life, the power of sex, how evolution continues to affect us every day, and the perceived conflict between science and religion. The Mind's Big Bang: Anatomically modern humans existed more than 100,000 years ago, but with crude technology, no art, and primitive social interaction. By 50,000 years ago, something had happened which triggered a creative, technological, and social explosion--and humans came to dominate the planet. This was a pivotal point in our evolution, the time when the human mind truly emerged. The Mind's Big Bang examines forces that may have contributed to the breakthrough, allowing us to prevail over other hominids, the Neanderthals, who co-existed with us for tens of thousands of years. The film then explores where this power of mind may lead us, as the culture we create overtakes our own biological evolution. What About God?: Of all the species on earth, only humans try to explain who they are and how they came to be, through the prisms of both science and religion. Today, the theory of evolution is dogged by this tension. What About God? explores the controversy by drawing on real human stories of people struggling to find a balance between religion and science. Through their perceptions, the film underscores the point that these realms are compatible, although they play very different roles in assigning order to the universe and a purpose to life. Special DVD features include: Access to the Evolution Web site, featuring interactive games and activities, a comprehensive evolution library, online teacher course and student lessons, a printable teacher's guide, an evolution glossary and FAQs, and more. On one DVD5 disc. Region coding: All regions. Audio: Dolby stereo. Screen format: Letterboxed.
