Details

Have museums withheld important fossils that would place evolution in jeopardy?

Did dinosaurs live with modern plants (apple trees, sassafras trees, roses, and rhododendrons) and modern animals (ducks, dogs, possums, and humans) thousands of years ago, as the story of creation suggests? Or did dinosaurs live at a remote time, millions of years ago, with other extinct, strange, and unusual animals, as the theory of evolution suggests?

Dr. Carl Werner traveled 160,000 miles to find the answer, visiting 10 dinosaur dig sites and 60 natural history museums. To his surprise, he found examples of all of the major plant divisions and all of the major animal phyla groups living today, fossilized alongside the dinosaurs.

The biggest discovery Dr. Werner made was that some of the most important fossils were not displayed in any of the museums he visited. Have natural history museums withheld these critical fossils from their public displays, fossils that would place the theory of evolution in jeopardy? 

This DVD has the feel of a PBS documentary, with British narrator Andres Williams, and contains spectacular underwater footage of Dr. Werner diving at the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the coral reefs in the Caribbean Sea, plus footage from dinosaur dig sites in Europe and North America.

Based on the popular book series “Evolution: The Grand Experiment” by Dr. Carl Werner. Filmed over 13 years on three continents and eight countries including many active dinosaur dig sites, museums and universities. Bonus material includes interview with author Dr. Carl Werner.
