Review: Awesome Science Episode 6 Explore John Day Fossil Beds
The Awesome Science Dvd's take adults and teens around the world to historical and geographic locations to bring science to life with a Biblical worldview. The series is produced by Kyle Justice and hosted by teenager Noah Justice. Noah serves as a travel guide on amazing adventures to show the astounding evidence that supports a creationist view point. Previous episodes include : Explore the Grand Canyon, Explore Yellowstone, Explore Meteor Crater and Petrified Forest, Explore Yosemite and Zion National Parks, and Explore Mount St. Helens. Each DVD in the series runs about 30 minutes long.
In Episode 6 Explore the John Day Fossil beds, Noah Justice visits the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in northeastern Oregon. In the episode we learn: the range of plant and animal fossils and why no dinosaurs are found, the history of the spectacular geological formations and the impact of erosion, which explanation is correct millions of years or a catastrophic event.
You can purchase this DVD here for $14.99.
I viewed this DVD with my 11,9, and 7 year old boys. It can be such a challenge to find creation based science resources. The "theory" of evolution is promoted and widely accepted as fact and rarely do you ever hear that there is quite a lot of evidence to support the Biblical view of creation. But, the evidence does exist, and Awesome Science is bringing that evidence to adults, teens, and children through it's series of DVD's. Through these DVD's we have the opportunity to see beautiful, high quality footage of landmarks we may never get to visit in person. I do not remember ever hearing about the John Day Fossil Beds before and found it fascinating.
Noah Justice spends a lot of time explaining this monument and the science behind how it is formed. He discusses what both secular and creation scientists believe and the supporting evidence that proves the existence of a world wide flood. This 30 minute video is jam packed full of interesting information. What a great way to learn Science!
