Quote from: GravitySucks on October 26, 2016, 12:08:45 AMThe Visual Bible Series is a very professional production with a unique perspective. The script is entirely the Book of Matthew (New International Version). No other words are added and none are omitted. Of course it is impossible to know what how the events were manifested over 2000 years ago, but I found this version to be very believable and well worth the time watching it. When the actors are not speaking, Christoper Plummer is providing the narration. Some of the words are used as the script for scenes where the scene is acted out. In others, it is an elderly Matthew dictating his memory of the events to a scribe. Very smooth transition between the two techniques. I recommend this film, and Acts as well. I have the DVDs of John and Mark, but I have not watched them yet. I would expect them to be of similar high-quality. They changed the actor portraying Simon Peter between the two. James Brolin plays Simon Peter in Acts and I wish he would have done the same in Matthew. Dean Jones plays Luke in Acts. Bruce Marchiano plays Jesus. I believe this (and the follow on Acts) was filmed in Morroco. The Sermon on the Mount really came to life for me as I watched this movie.

Quote from: theONE on October 26, 2016, 02:19:36 AMIf person believes that there is no Creator-God and that we come from some organism in the ocean then that person has lot's of questions that have no logical answers,.. and still at the end even if they somehow explain how all that life chain evolved from other organism from some other matter, final question still will NOT be answered,..where/how the first element started from which ALL the next elements become.
Quote from: SredniVashtar on October 26, 2016, 09:00:29 AMIt's fine to have unanswered questions, it doesn't invalidate a theory. The idea of a God doesn't explain anything; evolution gets much closer and has evidence to back it up, rather than the word of a bunch of illiterate peasants 2000 years ago. 'God' is just another word for ignorance. In the ancient world people used to claim that everything in nature came about through the actions of a god or gods, simply because they didn't know any better. These days, we have better explanations.
Quote from: onan on October 26, 2016, 12:56:35 PMIt's your answer, not mine. Your solution is the same superstion that believed the world was supported by the back strength of a turtle. It may give comfort to apply god's will to deal with the fear, dread, sadness, and confusion of a chaotic universe. Believing in a final reward as the motive for doing good deeds is a fundamentally flawed premise.
