The question, “Does God Exist?” has been pondered upon for years. As inquisitive humans, people seek answers to questions every day and attempt to gain knowledge to answer these questions.

If one is pondering whether the major or courses one is taking are useful in life,“Genesis: Part 1 Paradise Lost” takes on the collaborative efforts of biologists, geologists, pastors, geophysicists, microbiologists, Evangelists, astronomers, and molecular geneticists to give insight on questions about the creation story.

This documentary is the first 3D Christian movie about the beginning of The Bible which was previously a one-time cinema showing released on Nov. 13, 2017. Recently, the decision was made to have a final encore showing, available in cinemas on Monday, Dec. 11, 2017.

The film creates a platform of Evolutionists vs. A Supreme Creator (God) and scrutinizes each verse in the Book of Genesis. This documentary stars a team of scientists and researchers which includes Dr. Voddie Bauchman Jr. (film narrator), Dr. John Baumgardner (geophysicist), Ray Comfort (Evangelist), Dr. Andrew Fabich (microbiologist), Dr. Danny Faulkner (astronomist), and Ken Ham (researcher). It also has Pastor Chad Hovind (lead pastor), Dr. Charles Jackson (professor of Creation Science), Dr. Jeremey Lyon (researcher), Dr. David Menton (professor of anatomy), Bodie Hodge (researcher), Dr. Terry Mortenson (researcher), Dr. Georgia Purdon (molecular geneticist).

Additionally, this documentary brings to life the book of Genesis with the creation story and seeks to answer the controversial question of whether a Supreme creator exists or does our existence as humans seek to prove the Big Bang Theory. This film was produced by Ralph Strean (“Jurassic Park: Island Survival” and “Creation Today.”) Strean thought the movie theatres would have more of an impact on individuals, so he decided to take the message of Jesus Christ where most individuals would socialize. He struggled with the creation story, until he studied it gaining a full appreciation for himself. Strean’s goal of producing this documentary was to assist others who are going through the same struggles as he did with the Book.

Additionally, Ralph produced this movie based on the book Genesis: Paradise Lost written by author Dr. Tommy Mitchell, to bring further insight into the creation story. The book seeks to terminate the debate on how life began, starting from the book of Genesis and continuing through the Old Testament. All of this effort is used to bring about an understanding of the historical records represented in The Bible, relaying that they are in fact true.
