FLIGHT the genius of birds
On the back we read:
FLIGHT: The Genius of Birds is the first film in Illustra Media's new series THE DESOGN OF LIFE. Each episode explores a different realm of the animal kingdom and the remarkable biological systems that make life on Earth possible.
filmed in North America, england, Peru, Greenland, and Antarctica, FLIGHT probes the mysteries and mechanisms of a bird's anatomy, instincts, and embryology to reveal stunning provisions essential for life in the skies. You'll marvel at the hummingbird's unique skeletal, muscular and metabolic systems - all vital to its spectacular aerial acrobatics....
The endurance and navigational abilities of an Arctic tern as it travels from pole to pole during the longest migration on the planet....
The instinctive strategies that enable a flock of 3000,000 European starlings to evade predators at break-neck speeds.....
The elaborate network of a million component parts that make a feather an aerodynamic masterpiece. And much more.
The poet William Blake wrote that to see an eagle in the air is to observe "a portion of genius." In FLIGHT the ingenuity of a bird's behavior and biology showcase unmistakable evidence for design, purpose, and plan. It is evidence best explained by an intelligence that transcends the natural world.
Running time: Approx. 63 minutes
THE CREATION OF BIRDS; WHAT IS NEEDED FROM THE WORD GO, TO FLY THROUGH THE AIR MAKES EVOLUTION THE BIGGEST JOKE OF THE LAST 200 YEARS, SINCE THE IDEA OF EVOLUTION CAME ON THE SCENE. TO THINK THAT SLOWLY OVER MILLIONS OF YEARS LAND ANIMALS SLOWLY DEVELOPED WINGS AND ALL THE REST, THEY DON'T TELL YOU ABOUT, TO MAKE FLIGHT POSSIBLE, IS ONE OF THE CRAZIEST IDEAS MAN HAS COME UP WITH, TO DENY THERE IS A CREATOR GOD THAT NOT ONLY CREATED BIRDS BUT EVERYTHING IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE.
EVOLUTIONARY SCIENTISTS NOW ADMIT [99 PER-CENT OF THEM] THE UNIVERSE DID NOT ALWAYS EXIST, BUT CAME INTO BEING AT SOME 14 BILLION OR SO YEARS AGO, WITH WHAT THEY NOW CALL "THE BIG BANG" -- THEY ARE ADMITTING WHAT THE BIBLE HAS SAID FOR AT LEAST TWO THOUSAND YEARS: GOD CREATED THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE OUT OF NOTHING. THERE WAS A TIME WHEN THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE DID NOT EXIST. THEN A TIME WHEN IT CAME INTO BEING, WITH ALL THE LAWS THE UNIVERSE HAS TO SUSTAIN ITSELF.
THIS EARTH IS FULL TO THE BRIM WITH THE GLORIOUS TRUTH AND FACTS OF COMPLEXITY OF LIFE. BIRDS ARE JUST ONE OF THOSE COMPLEXITIES THAT YOU MUST HAVE ALL PARTS, AT THE SAME TIME, TO FLY THROUGH THE AIR.
THE 747 AIRPLANE MUST HAVE ALL PARTS TOGETHER IN THE RIGHT ORDER AND DESIGN TO FLY. TO THINK YOU COULD SLOWLY INVENT THE PARTS WITHOUT A DESIGNER, OR THROW ALL THE PARTS INTO A ROOM AND THEY WOULD PUT THEMSELVES TOGETHER, WITHOUT A DESIGNER, IS BEYOND THE WORD LUDICROUS..... IT IS INSANITY!
FLIGHT the genius of birds: is a must have dvd for all Christians.
