View the Episode Synopsis below to find out more about topics that are covered in the series:

1. Design — Chaos or Creation?

This episode kicks off the series by exploring the age-old question: Was the universe designed or is it a product of random chance? The first installment begins with a memorable and engaging introduction to the fundamentals and flaws of evolutionary theories and contrasts them with Scripture that illuminates the undeniable evidence of God’s creation.

2. Origins of Life — Plants and Animals

Where did life come from? Was it a chemical accident in a primordial pond or a living microscopic stowaway on an ancient asteroid? Or was it something more intentional? This episode explores the mystery of how life on Earth began. Our experts analyze the prevailing theories of life’s origins and test them against known natural laws, recent genetic evidence, and other data that point to the divine origins of plants and animals, as explained in the Genesis account.

3. Origins of Life — Humans

One of the most controversial questions in all of science centers on where humans came from. Did we evolve from the animal kingdom, or were we uniquely and divinely created, as Genesis states, to hold stewardship over the earth? This episode examines some of the prevailing theories about mankind’s origins and presents fascinating new evidence from genetic and medical research that indicates we’ve been misguided by 150 years of evolutionary theories and teachings.

4. Fossils

What does the fossil record actually reveal about the history of life on Earth? In this episode, we explore the secrets of the past revealed by fossils and expose how appearances can be deceiving. Astonishing new discoveries from dinosaur fossils cast doubt on mainstream assumptions about the age of the earth and suggest that cutting-edge science is only beginning to uncover the wisdom and complexity of God’s design.

5. Noah’s Flood

There is little disagreement among scientists that the earth’s climate and geology have been drastically altered by water since the beginning of time, but they puzzle over how and when this occurred. Does the great worldwide Flood described in Genesis explain natural wonders like Grand Canyon? Or was it the result of gradual erosion over eons of time? Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis takes this question on location, where one of the world’s leading experts in Flood geology puts the evidence on display.

6. Age of Earth

How old is Earth? Understanding the approximate age of the earth is more than an intellectual curiosity—it’s actually a critical issue of faith. By taking a closer look at the scientific evidence, this episode reveals why basic assumptions about Earth’s age may be flawed. A recent, explosive example provides further evidence that the earth’s ancient past may not be so ancient after all.

7. Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs captured our imaginations long before the field of paleontology was established in the 1700s. Dragons, winged serpents, and giant behemoths have inhabited folklore around the world for centuries. Most modern scientists claim dinosaurs became extinct eons ago, while ancient historians and monster-hunters have recorded more recent sightings. Did dinosaurs really die off before the age of man? Do we believe the Genesis account? This segment explores surprising evidence that dinosaurs may have walked the earth with early humans and explains why that matters to Christians.

8. The Ice Age

Most scientists agree that the earth has experienced long periods of time when glacial ice covered the continents as a result of drastic changes in geology and atmosphere. What worldwide cataclysm could have caused such a dramatic change in Earth’s climate? How did it affect the development of civilization? Could it happen again? We will dig into the causes and effects of the Ice Age and what it tells us about the world we live in today.

9. Ancient Civilizations

If all living things except Noah and his family were destroyed in the Genesis Flood, how and when did civilizations rebuild? Where did the Neandertals come from? How did the great nation of Egypt develop? Are the Bible stories of Moses and the nation of Israel historical? Using the latest discoveries in biology, medicine, archaeology, and anthropology, this episode unearths man’s past to help us uncover the truth.

10. Origin of the Universe

Modern technology enables scientists and stargazers to explore distant parts of the universe that ancient astronomers only dreamed of. New physics discoveries provoke fascinating and often fanciful theories about how the universe began but offer no tangible evidence. By applying the laws of empirical science and mathematics to the question of origins, it becomes apparent that the Genesis account of creation is startlingly accurate. Once again, science confirms Scripture.

11. Uniqueness of Earth

How is it possible that we exist at all, much less on a planet filled with so much beauty and complexity, hanging upon nothing in the endless void of space? Is the earth unique or merely, as Carl Sagan once said, “an insignificant planet of a humdrum star, lost in a galaxy” among millions of galaxies? By analyzing the uniqueness of Earth’s—and our own—position in the universe, we discover more about God’s eternal plan, starting in Genesis.

12. The Big Picture

Over the course of these episodes, we will guide the viewer through profound mysteries that have puzzled man for centuries. This final episode reflects on the key questions and evidence and asks the viewers to consider what they have witnessed and learned. Having seen evidence that confirms the biblical account of creation as found in Genesis, not just on terms of faith but on terms of science, viewers should acknowledge a greater security and confidence in the Bible’s message and purpose.

  1. L.N.

    I am using the 12 Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis series DVDs as the primary portion of a class at my church entitled “The Gospel According Genesis.” After two lessons we had to move to a larger classroom—very well received!

    Loved it
    I recently finished watching Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis series and loved it. It’s nice to have a quick summary of the major topics in one package. I pray that God blesses the lives of others through what ICR does as much as it has blessed me.

  3. D.M.

    Thank you!
    I just want to express my thanks to ICR for producing Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis. When I first heard this series was available I got excited. Then I ordered it, saw each video and I got even more excited about the possibilities of this great teaching tool. Now we are showing each episode during Sunday evening services at our congregation. So far there has been nothing but a positive response from the members. Some are coming out to evening services for the first time!

    “I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how so very blessed my family has been by the Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis DVD series that ICR has created. Wow! We are using the course as a part of our home-school curriculum this year, and it has been absolutely fabulous! Our children love it! The quality is superb and the content is excellent! I anticipate that the Lord is going to use it to equip thousands of Christians for His glory. Thank you so much for producing it!”

    I have been studying creation science and evolutionary science for a couple of years now. I’ve read books from both sides of the argument and actually have debated evolutionist professors with creation arguments and left them speechless. This series as an awesome set that condenses much of the highly technical science in the creation books that I’ve read into a layman’s type of documentary. I would strongly recommend this set for people just beginning their study of creation because it doesn’t overwhelm you with words or concepts a beginner can’t understand. Do not stop your research here. Continue to learn about creation and evolution. Learn the highly technical information about both sides and you’ll see that creation is the most viable and scientific theory of origins there is.

  6. Brian Taylor

    Yes, a very well done and professional series. Great for skeptics seeking truth.

  7. W Strickler

    The quality of the video and audio are the best and it shows impressively well on a big screen in a home theater. I wish I could get it in Blu-ray. As of Jan 1, 2015, this is probably the most up to date video of science interpreted from the creation point of view assuming the book of Genesis in the bible is literally accurate and true. I heard scientists have found un-decayed T-rex tissue (even DNA) in fossils. I did not know until I saw it on this video that this is wide spread in a lot of fossils including dinosaur fossils that are less than a few thousand years old indicating that most dragons and dinosaurs probably went extinct just hundreds up to a few thousand years ago. I also found it very interesting that carbon-14 is common in fossils that some dating methods seem to indicated are a million years old or older. The main thing I don’t like about these videos is that they are only 22 minutes each meaning they are intended to be shown one at a time in a small group situation with plenty of time for discussion and personal research. The videos basically only give the facts plus some interpretations and leave the proof and sources of those facts to the research of the person watching the video. And believe it, there are thousands of books written by top notch scientists and millions of articles backing up the scientific facts. Also, there are hundreds of scriptures scattered throughout the Bible that back up the literal translation of the book of Genesis. I look forward and wonder what scientist will discover about dinosaurs from their DNA. I like high quality videos like this as I don’t have time to read many thousand page books written by PhD scientists. I can tell this video was well thought out and researched over and over before it was made and released. These videos are real science stuff, not the garbage scientific like lies found in most or all science fiction movies.
