5.0 out of 5 stars How faith and science align March 21, 2012
By Sadie
Format:DVD
God created the universe. He also created science. Therefore, science and faith have to be in complete agreement. This movie shows how faith and science are in agreement in a provocative, new way with well accepted scientific theory developed by Albert Einstein. The best part of the movie is when Kerry is told by her professor that she must loose her faith if she wants to pursue a career in science. The interaction between Kerry's father and the professor is priceless. The movie makes you think about issues of faith and science, living out your faith in a post-modern society and end of life matters. Well done.

"You seem like an intelligent girl, you don't really believe in that religious hokey-pokey do you?" Blake (Bartholomew) is the star hockey player at his college and is the subject of Kerry's (Sanders) new article. What begins as a simple interview turns into something much much more. Blake's mother is in the hospital and when Kerry mentions prayer she finds out Blake's stance on religion. She turns to her brother in an attempt to prove God is real. I again need to start by saying that I am not a big fan of faith based movies. It's not that I'm not religious it's just that 99% of them are way too cheesy and unbelievable. This one is easily the best one that I have seen. It doesn't force it down your throat but maintains the religious feel through out which is hard to do. JFK is one of my favorite movies for many reasons, but at it's core it is Oliver Stone letting everyone know how he felt. I bring that up because this movie seems like the writers way of letting everyone know how he feels about the religious vs science debate. While there is some hockey scenes in this (which really aren't needed) the meat of the movie takes place in a museum in what is about a half hour of how science can prove the Book Of Genesis is true. As boring as that sounds that scene is the most riveting part of the movie as well as the most exciting lecture I've ever been a part of. Religious or not this is a good movie, but like all faith movies the ending is a little unbelievable which takes a little away from it but still very much worth seeing. Overall, the best of this type of movie I have seen. I give it a B+.

Of the 16 customer reviews printed prior to 4/26/12, every single one of them are by one time users whose only review for this site are for this movie. And 14 of them are short 5 star raves. That could mean one of two things. Either the movie strikes such a powerful chord with viewers, it inspires them to go to lengths that they have never done for any other movie, book, or personal product. That's pretty impressive! The other option, of course, seems a little more likely and is far more troubling. However, this being a movie about faith and honor, I'll choose to accept every comment at face value and truly hope that this movie was so inspiring that it touched that many people.

For my purposes, I'm going to address the well-intentioned "The Genesis Code" as a movie and not as any sort of ideological treatise. I know that the film caters to a particular Christian based audience, but again--this is simply a movie review and not a discourse on what people should or should not believe. The basic premise behind "The Genesis Code," however, is one that intrigues me. With a degree in Biology, I firmly believe in the sciences and the principles of Evolution. I have never thought that the existence of Evolution discounted the presence of a higher being, though. To my way of thinking, the two things do not disprove one another but I have never taken the Bible as a literal history. "The Genesis Code" does. Its characters try to reconcile the timeline presented in Genesis with the timeline presented by Evolution, saying that both are correct.

The film stars a likable Logan Bartholomew as a star college hockey player whose mother is in a coma. One day he meets a devout school reporter (Kelsey Sanders) assigned to cover his story.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Problem with The Genesis Code July 6, 2012
By P.J.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While the movie itself was very good, engaging, entertaining, etc., the final solution, so to speak, arrived at to link science and the Bible still leaves in place the 6 literal days not millions of years question by referring to "two extinctions". The Bible is clear that there was no death until sin entered the world. There could not have been extinctions of created life prior to the creation of Adam and Eve (day 6) and their fall into sin some time later. Death is a direct consequence of the Fall and it affects all life. So, as much as I enjoyed the film, this flaw prevents me from recommending it. Because it doesn't fully answer the conflict between secular science and creation science, it actually does more harm than good. Many may say it doesn't matter whether it was 6 literal days or billions of years but it does matter. Genesis is the foundation, the beginning of God's revelation to us. Once you start to question the truth of Genesis it opens the door to questioning the entire Bible. It is supremely important that we take God at His Word. He said, ...and it was evening and morning the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth days. We can't pick and choose what in Scripture we (finite human beings that we are) agree with and what we don't. We, the church, are losing our kids to the world and this issue has much to do with why this is happening. There is no inherent conflict between Scripture and science. But when some, whose agenda is known to have been removing God from the picture of our lives, began to theorize regarding origins, too many Christians, seeking to fit it, took the position that evolution/millions of years fit in with the Bible. They don't. Read more ›
