"The biggest group of crackpots since time began have all gotten together to have you swallow the most wacko theories in history. If you seriously believe that mankind walked on earth at the same time as dinosaurs and all of this happened a very short time of just 5000 years ago this is the show for you! But don't expect to find much of anything about dinosaurs in this DVD. The cover on this DVD is about the last you will see of them. But do expect a group of crazed right wing extremists to quote endless verses from the Bible including Genesis and Job as proof that Darwin is wrong. Continental drift happened very fast according to this movie. Perhaps it should be renamed continental dash. This DVD proposes they smashed into each other at 45 mph. And Noah's flood really did kill off the dinosaurs. This whole DVD could be best described as right wing political propaganda you buy rather than get for free. I have to say that getting it all was an enormous disappointment for me. I was expecting to learn something about dinosaurs. What I got is someone sell me their interpretation of the Bible. I hope they get their Scope's monkey trial back again. Maybe then they will get the idea of who the monkeys are? You would be best to forget owning this. ... Unless of course you wanna' own mine?"
Science? religion? creationism?

"This video has the feel of Discovery Channel but by the end they are making more and more bible references. This is, to a large extent, an argument that dinosaurs may have been wiped out in "noah's flood" and evolution may not be as sturdy science as we may have believed.
It is not bad quality but some of the stuff that appears to be straight science may get logged in your mind with stuff you learn from Discovery Channel and you might start talking in scientific company about discoveries of dino-tracks together with human tracks. This looks like science but will remind you of hunts for big-foot and proofs of the bible (which this attempts to be).
The greatest value here is showing my son an example of when he should be skeptical of everything he reads and sees. 2 stars instead of 1 due to this unexpected benefit."

"Buyers thinking that this is a lesson in natural history and evolution for their kids need to be aware that this video puts forward alternative theories to evolution, linking events in the geological record to Biblical events. While the word "creationist" is never uttered, some supposedly legitimate theories are proposed alongside well established ones. Some of these I have never heard of in all of my years of undergraduate, medical, and postgraduate education in the sciences, and yet they are presented as well accepted alternative hypotheses to the extinction of the dinosaur. I believe the title and packaging are misleading, and there is a lapse in truth in advertising. Amazon should post a disclaimer, IMHO."

"This disc is sold as a science based program. It is simply a FRAUD, filled with bible based BS. It should be labeled as "creation science,
"intelligent design" or simply as "sunday school lesson for sixth graders."
