Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman – Resource Review

wormholeA couple years ago, I got this astronomy DVD for Christmas; ‘Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman’. Recently I’ve found that it’s a pretty famous show about astronomy. So, I thought I’d write a review of it so you guys could hear what I thought of it.

The first thing that struck me when I first started watching it was all the religious topics. Episodes like “Is there a God?” “Where did we come from?” and “What was before the beginning?” The show seemed to focus largely on debating whether or not God existed. Obviously, I don’t think that’s a bad thing. However, the show never brought on any of the creation experts. The only person on the show who believed in Biblical creation was a Catholic Bishop. Why didn’t they have Ken Ham on it, you ask? I don’t know. I guess they didn’t want to feature Biblical Creation on their show.

Fortunately there were some very interesting episodes. Of the 8 episodes on the DVD, 4 of them were about religious (or should I say ‘anti-religious’) topics, but the other 4 were on science and astronomy in general. The Riddle of the Black Hole was a very interesting episode, and one that I found very helpful here recently was the Time Travel episode. I used the information in that very extensively during my most recent VinSense episode.

In all, Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman is a great show for introducing astronomy. But for all you parents, I recommend you watch the show with your kids and discuss the issues it brings up. Remember: We’re not trying to keep from ever hearing about evolution, but rather we want to learn to recognize the flaws in evolutionary thinking. A great video to learn about that is Evolution vs. God! Read my Review Here.
