Synopsis

Out of the abundance of the heart come man’s actions. His desire for an existence far away from the law of God has guided societies since his fall in the Garden of Eden. And though ancient history records atrocities perpetrated by men from all cultures, the twentieth century has been the bloodiest in the history of the world.

Join Professor and Historian John Eidsmoe, Pastor Mark Liddle, and Doctors Lance Radbill and William McKenzie, as we travel through the labyrinth of man’s depravity and discover how the recent philosophy of Neo-Darwinian evolution and it’s guiding mechanism: Natural Selection or “survival of the fittest,” has transformed the way men view one another. Specifically – Eugenics.

We will discover the history of this practice, and though it began well before Darwin, the advent of Darwin’s theory gave the implementation of eugenics “scientific credibility”. Man no longer views his fellow man as made in the image of God, which has unleashed mankind’s wrath upon the weakest members of our society.

Dove Review

This documentary intelligently shows how some people restrict God in their lives, just as some institutions refuse to acknowledge the Ten Commandments, and what happens as a result. As a result, according to history, you inherit despots who believe in eugenics, breeding a superior race of people while eliminating what some would call “weak” people, as there are those who obviously do not see in them the image of God. You inherit those who see life as cheap, those who would starve their own people to death.

The documentary is intense at times, showing briefly but yet several times photos of holocaust victims, some starving, some dead and the skeletal remains of some victims as seen in gas ovens. On the other hand, the documentary features various leaders such as Pastor Mark Liddle of Dominion Baptist church, and various experts in the field of human behavior and history who demonstrate a solid faith in Christianity. So many parts of the DVD are positive and uplifting.

We believe the merits of this documentary outweigh the uncomfortable moments which are seen, moments of war and a few violent ones. But those who are easily upset by images of death may want to skip this one. For those who desire to view this, they will see an outstanding DVD which clearly shows what happens to society when God is pushed aside. We award this DVD our Dove Seal for ages twelve plus, due to the mature and intense scenes.
