Science DVDs,

This product is exclusive to the Discovery Channel Store.

This Biblical Mysteries Explained DVD is a three-part series that explores the greatest events of the Bible and reveals new scientific discoveries that explains how they may have happened. A new breed of scientist proclaims that natural mega-disasters are part of the earth's heritage... super-volcanoes, asteroid strikes, global warming, polar ice-melt... they have happened in the past and they will happen again. And according to this science, the ancient mega-disasters were recorded by early man in folk legends, in primitive myths, in ancient chronicles... and in the Bible itself. Biblical Mysteries Explained Series DVD investigates three of the Bible's mega-events. We speak with experts, examine the archaeological record, and apply forensic science, computer modeling and dramatic field tests to determine how these events could actually have happened. The Science DVD works with this hypothesis based on the input of top geologists, climatologists and archaeologists which allows us to witness exactly what happened, through Hollywood-style computer graphics that make the Biblical events come alive.

Episodes Include:
Exodus: Biblical Mysteries Explained examines the Exodus. Is there any truth to this tale of plagues, parting of the Red Sea, and a man named Moses? New scientific theories will be examined that support the extraordinary tale of Exodus.

Sodom and Gomorrah: Biblical Mysteries Explained examines the tale of Sodom and Gomorrah. Could their destruction be linked to evidence of an ancient asteroid strike?

Lost Gospels: Biblical Mysteries Explained examines the lost books of the Bible. We'll travel from the desert of Egypt to the labs of the Smithsonian Institution to uncover the secrets of the banned gospels of Mary Magdalene, Peter the Apostle, and Judas Iscariot.

Buy the Biblical Mysteries Explained DVD and examine scientific theories and a comprehensive discussion surrounding the Exodus, Sodom and Gomorrah and the Lost Gospels.

        * I use the product as part of my study and research.
        *The product presents information not readily available elsewhere.
        *The product could emphasize more on the actual impacts of natural disasters. The product could emphasize more about the impact of competing religions that influenced early Christian doctrine.

        I will not spoil of the theories, but if my 6th grade daughter can pick out the non sense of the red sea theory then I'm sure you will get a laugh at the rest. Just ask yourself, if a category 4 hurricane or f2 tornado goes 130 mph+ the how can people cross the red sea? I mean those winds pull trees out by the root. If you wanna waste your money for a laugh this is the book.

              Comments about this product:

              you believe the plagues recounted in the Exodus were miracles. Why shouldn't divine intervention follow the natural laws that are part of creation? After all, there is no reason that the first plague, which started the ball rolling, had to occur at precisely the time when the Hebrew slaves had to free themselves or be exterminated by the Pharoah as rebels. This is the story of how each "plague" caused the one that followed, in a sequence that is logical according to a modern understanding of ecology.

              The amazing aspect of this exploration of the miracles of the Exodus, to me, is how accurately the Jews kept the sequence of events over at least 1000 years before people were generally literate. Much of it must have been transmitted aurally, word for word, since the ancient time when all of it occurred, without a single event being lost or shifted out of order! If the sequence in the Bible were not exactly as it had happened, ecological historians would not have been able to discern the plausible scientific pattern outlined in this documentary.

                      @Jesusfreak's review. You are so caught up in fairy tales that you are completely missing the point. This series is not to disprove the bible, but rather to show how events in the bible, no matter how unbelievable they are, actually could have happened. Also, their "dust storm" you saw was not a blackout because ITS TV FOR GOD'S SAKE!! You obviously have never been in or seen a real dust storm. I've been in a Nevada dust storm and could not see my hand in front of my face... and that's nowhere near as bad as Middle East gets!! WAKE UP!

                      I'm sorry i just thought these series were extremely ridiculous! why does everyone feel the need to try and make up their own theory? it seems to me as if this show is trying to say that God had absolutely nothing to do with what happened and that science and "mother nature" did it all. they're trying to say everything that happened to the Hebrews magically(scientifically) happened only because of science and good luck? that doesn't make any sense, in the Exodus episode they tried to say the 3 days of darkness was because of a dust storm...baloney...in the bible it says it was complete darkness and the people could not see each other, and in the episode it shows what a real sandstorm looks like and u can obviously see each other! even if u look up a massive sandstorm "cashimh" it would not be in complete darkness. also about the parting of the red sea it says the water stood up like a wall on both sides and in the episode they used a ridiculous example of a spot less then a foot deep...C'mon people stop trying to try and find explanations for everything and just trust and believe in the power of the almighty creator of all things, my father and yours GOD!!! pretty much everything they were trying to explain seemed a bit ridiculous to me, why does everyone have to doubt our father? i pray that everyone who is against God will open their eyes and hearts before they die because mark my words they will regret it [*]! repent now before its too late, there is no second chance!!! Jesus is Lord forever!!!

                        Along with the "Apocalypse How" program aired on the Discovery Channel, this DVD presents pieces of an apocalyptic puzzle that are basically ignored by the three major monotheistic religions which enslave their adherents in the manner depicted in the episode dealing with the struggles that took place as Emperor Constantine sought to unify and solidify Christianity as a state religion. The precedent set in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah can happen again in the exact same area or anywhere else for that matter. The U.S. Government is already aware of this and has considered having a Planetary Defense System to deal with the threat of asteroid impacts and a manned mission to land on an asteroid all by the year 2025.

                          The Sodom and Gomorrah part to me explains now fully Global Warming in that the Earth is returning to its previous condition. Whether the alarmists like it or not the Earth has its own agenda and we cannot in any way disturb or cause it to alter its course. Trees will grow again in the Sahara region like they did before the asteroid hit. Oh, and the Exodus part where people have a hard time believing about walking in those winds. I think the Jews motivation to get acroos or die was enough for them to overcome the winds and get moving to safety. Wouldn't you be likewise motivated?
                          The first comment in this section brings to mind a problem I had that was the same with a TV I had. Turns out when the sound was changed from Stereo to Mono the narratives and all sounds were just right. Change your TV setup section to Mono and it'll be right.

                          Saw 2 fascinating chapters on TV, which must have edited background noise down to tolerable. So bought this CD to watch the 3rd - "Exodus". Far too much background noise, booms, explosions for emphasis, terribly distracting. Had to set DVD sub-titles to understand narrative! Producers should have strong voices for the narrative, only low level backgrounds. Buyers do not buy these DVDs as music or sound effects, but want clear narrations. History Channel also frequently has high noise music levels drowning out the narrative!
