The Mysterious Islands


At the far end of the world, there exists a chain of strange islands, steeped in controversy. The Mysterious Islands is the story of one boy and a team of researchers who take an amazing adventure to the heart of the mystery in search of clues that will expose the truth in a centuries-old dispute. The beautiful documentary was shot at “ground zero” of Darwinism. It takes viewers deep beneath the ocean waves, among hundreds of white-tip sharks, to the home of slat-sneezing iguanas, on top of volcanic craters and beside giant tortoises that can live to be more that 150 years of age. Seen through the eyes of 16-year-old Joshua Phillips who join his father and noted researches like Dr. John Morris, this film brings a fresh perspective on the Theory of Evolution. It answers the question: Is the Galapagos a laboratory for evolution or a testimony to the Biblical account of creation?

Dove Review

Join a group of Christian men as they take a trip to the Galapagos Islands where Charles Darwin traveled and arrived at his evolution theory. These men give their thoughts on how Darwinism came to be. It’s filled with historical facts and insight into this astounding expedition to prove the Biblical truth of creation. Travel with these men as they look at the many species and scenery of the area, with the conclusion that the Creator developed this area along with the rest of the world.

This is a fantastic documentary that will be up for discussion in many families. We are proud to award this DVD the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
