The Privileged Planet

The Privileged Planet

$16.00

DVD
ZONE 0, PAL. THE SEARCH FOR PURPOSE IN THE UNIVERSE
Note: Not all DVDs work in all DVD players. Details about DVD regions.

Many scientists and philosophers have claimed that Earth is an ordinary speck of dust adrift, without purpose or significance, in a vast cosmic sea. Yet current astronomical evidence seems to suggest just the opposite.

We now know that a rare and finely tuned array of factors makes Earth suitable for complex life. We depend on our planet's oxygen-rich atmosphere, its large moon, its planetary neighbours and its precise location within the solar system and Milky Way galaxy. But there is more. The same factors that make a planet hospitable to life also provide the best conditions for scientific discovery.

Through stunning computer animation, interviews with leading scientists and spectacular images of Earth and the cosmos, THE PRIVILEGED PLANET explores a startling connection between our capacity to survive and our ability to observe and understand the universe.

Is this correlation merely a coincidence? Or does it point to a deeper truth about purpose and intelligent design within the cosmos?

Very informative
5 stars By David, Aug 10 2008
This DVD is just brilliant.  It draws the viewer to the conclusion there must be a God, based on the scientific evidence.  There is a lot of very interesting information in the presentation.  Most people will want to view this DVD several times.  Happy viewing!
