"Not long ago I read that a group of American tourists was being shown around Westminster Abbey in London. When the guide pointed out the grave of Charles Darwin, one of the Americans actually walked over and spat on it.
While the perpetrator may not have been the first reviewer of this DVD (below), they are certainly spiritual kin. If you believe that the world was created - in seven days - in 4004 BC, and that Adam and Eve were surrounded by romping dinosaurs, you won't like this film. Equally, if you judge the greatest scientific discoveries by your perhaps biased estimate of the scientist's moral caliber, you may also be disinclined to purchase it.
If, however, you possess a mind that is open to new concepts - or simply want to learn more about a great man who is regarded by the majority of scientists as a major contributor to the sum of human knowledge - you will be interested in this well put together collection of expert opinions, accurate biography, and archival photography."
