Darwin - The Voyage That Shook the World - DVD
The World is still Shaking
By 
With this video, I learned more about Charles Darwin and his Voyage of Beagel. It appears he got a lot of his ideas about nature before he reached the Galapagos Islands like in the South American jungles. The fossils he discovered in South America of extinct megabeasts along with geology of these regions appeared to have contributed to his famous theory. He visited a place that just had an earthquake and he could see how marine fossils could get several hundreds of feet above sea level. This video was a very good re-actment of this famous voyage and I would recommend it to everyone that loves nature. I believe the Galapagos Islands put the finishing touches of his ideas.

The Theory of Evolution has made the grade as a very sound Scientific concept. It explains a wide range of phenomenons in nature with the usage of few facts and postulates. It has passed every test and made predictions that came true. Does it have gaps? yes, but those gaps are rapidly closing with the new sciences lik

I enjoyed this video tremendously because it retraced the voyage of Charles Darwin. Along every step of the way, actual scientific facts about the places he visited are presented. I also think Dr. Robert Carter in the video makes for a great "Indiana Jones" type. It is the most comprehensive video on the subject of the voyage of Darwin around the world that I can find. It may surprise you, but all the evidence is there. Great food for thought. Captivating and enlightning, it is well worth watching.

Very informative. Didn't realize he struggled with his findings and being a Christian. I found his grandfather's influence interesting and the struggle to overcome that paradigm.
