The Young Sun


Does evidence really dictate that the sun is billions of years old? The Young Sun is a Christian documentary that examines the known processes of our sun and the most popular theories about its origin as a star. Featuring stunning space photography and informative animations, this creation-proving film explores in great detail the size, distance, structure, energy output, inner workings, and sheer uniqueness of the source of light and heat that God made on day four of creation.

Taking a closer look at the sun, this educational DVD from Bridgestone Multimedia Group features Dr. Jason Lisle, a creationist astrophysicist at Answers in Genesis, Dr. Danny Faulkner, a professor of astronomy at the University of South Carolina, and Dr. Ron Samec, an astronomy and physics professor at Bob Jones University. With their help, The Young Sun shows why it is impossible that any of the proposed evolutionary theories of star formation explain the origin of stars or our sun.

Dove Review

This is a fantastic DVD, hosted by three scientific brains who are amazed by God’s creation of the great blazing red ball known as the Sun. The DVD opens by mentioning the Genesis account of two great lights being created by God in the beginning, the greater light (the sun) to rule by day and the lesser light (the moon) to rule by night. It is stated that we can always count on one thing every morning, the sun will rise. The sun was created with the proper size and the right distance from Earth so that it can warm Earth’s atmosphere.

The scientists explore the corona of the sun, its mass, and gravitational pull, as well as looking at how plants harness the light of the sun. The Milky Way is also explored. The conclusion is that God is a great designer and is behind the awesome creations of the universe, including the sun. We gladly award this DVD our Dove Seal. It is a delight and educational to view.
