Comments about PBS Ancient Secrets of the Bible DVD:

Our group of adults enjoyed many of these shows. The Noah series of 3 shows was especially intriguing. We had many good discussions on the world wide flood theory, and the pieces of evidence shown. The shows on the Ark of the Covenant also created a lot of discussion, as well as the Shroud of Turin and the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Red Sea Miracle brought up discussion of recent discoveries of submerged chariots that have been found. Some of the graphics are dated from the shows made in the 1990's, but we grew up with those techniques, so understood how far modern computer graphics have progressed. A few of the shows seemed to be a bit tough to watch, as the theories were unique to us. So far I have viewed about 2/3's of the shows, and our group has viewed 12 of them for discussion. For the price, those 12 shows were worth the purchase. Our groups attendance continued to grow, and kept waiting for the next week.

Product description is WRONG.

Comments about PBS Ancient Secrets of the Bible DVD:

The product description says..."the answers are here." no they are not. These 1/2 hour shows are from the 1990s, cover many stories from the Holy Bible and they purport to ask whether the stories in the Holy Bible are true or myths and present evidence for both sides of the argument. The evidence is just some professors or clergy giving their opinions and NO hard evidence for comparison. There are persons purporting that the ARK of the Covenant is in Ethiopia hidden in a church and was view by several famous persons, including Queen Elizabeth of England. There is no attempt to contact any of these people and ascertain if they did see it. Others say this is a copy and the real ARK is hidden under the temple mount in Jerusalem (Rabbis in Israel that claim they found it there), again NO PROOF. The show then concludes that the ARK is in Israel under the mount, just on their say so.
There are 3 shows on Noah's Ark, that totals approximately 90 minutes and they repeat the same empty recreation footage over and over in each show and promise new "never before seen" photos and testimony of witnesses that have seen the Ark on Mount Ararat in Turkey. I did not see any photos showing the ARK just some blurry satellite photos showing a dark area and no photos by eye witnesses that claim to have been there.
The Evidence sited is the cuneiform tablet with the story of the flood discover in Nineveh and deciphered in 1872 by George Smith, they fail to mention that this story was in the Epic of Gilgamesh and took place in Babylon and involved people and an ARK from there and took place long before Noah was born. As Joseph Campbell points out, the flood story is found in every culture and was adapted by each for their own gods.
The shows conclude that YES the flood happened, Noah and 7 other people built the giant ark and tended the thousands of animals on board for about a year (by themselves) and then obviously repopulated the earth by having, negro, oriental, Latino, etc. offspring, who then travel to four corners of the earth, ALL in about 5,000 years. The fundamentalist that insist the ARK story is true also insist that evolution does NOT exist so the different offspring could not have evolved from Semitic parentage.
But wait. One "expert" claims that Noah did not need two of EVERY species of animal as each species has a "common ancestor" so all the different species today could have descended from the pair on the ARK. EVOLUTION? And in only 5,000 years? Take that Darwin.
No real science here, no real debates, just reaffirmation that the Holy Bible is the TRUTH, and nothing but the truth.
