Programming of Life 2: Earth

They're the questions that loom largest in the whole of human experience. Where do we come from, and which elements have conspired to assure the continued existence of our planet? The Programming of Life series has proven unafraid of exploring such questions, and even less fearful of reaching conclusions which are largely unpopular within the mainstream scientific community.

Programming of Life 2: Earth features insights from a panel of distinguished academics, including geophysicist James Jordan, geneticist Dr. John Sanford and information scientist Don Johnson, who all testify to the limitations of widely accepted modern-day science to adequately explain the complexities and precariousness of the universe. In the process, they uncover aspects of evolution that they find flawed at best, and make an argument for the probability of intelligent design.

In one segment of the film, this leaning is supported by the observations of Dr. Hugh Ross, an astrophysicist and devoted Christian who adopts a scientific approach when defining the veracity of his religious convictions. According to the documentary, Dr. Ross conducted a comprehensive study to determine the odds that just the right levels of nitrogen, oxygen and carbon could exist to realistically sustain life as it does on Earth. The fruits of his calculations set those odds at one in a billion.

To be sure, the chemical balances that ensure our planet's continued inhabitability are astoundingly complex. Just the slightest deviation from the equations that create life would result in a completely different planet, and would make the prospect of sustainable life an impossibility. Presenting its views in a polished manner, Programming of Life 2: Earth regards these amazements as much more than just the random byproduct of a big bang.

A counter to the widely accepted theory of evolution, the film despairs that these mainstream views are overwhelmingly represented in school textbooks and public forums without comment or challenge. In the end, though, the film stresses the importance of challenging common thinking and wisdom, which is a point on which most figures from both the evolutionary and intelligent design sides of the argument can agree.

    Some nice photos from the god guys.

    the hypocrisy and irony is strong within this one........ i hope this vid was added as a joke.

    Proof of God by stating how improbable many aspects of existence is without a magic man controlling it all by throwing real science and complex terms in there to "WOW!" uneducated, gullible, superstitious nutjobs.... "God must exist because look how perfectly perfect it all fits together, We can't explain it (yet) so it couldn't possibly have any explanation other than God did it..... see, I have proven God must have done it!... I'm so genius!"

    Lies, mixed with actual science, mixed with misinterpretation of science, mixed with a great big bunch of complete nonsense that would appeal to the already brainwashed superstitious nutjob looking for validation about his beliefs

    Wowzer, what a pocket full of lollipops!

    Dawkins: "It is as though they were just planted there without any evolutionary history." - google search result = about 244,000.

    ...Dawkins continued (next line, not shown in this documentary): "Evolutionists of all stripes believe, however, that this really does represent a very large gap in the fossil record." google results = 34,000.

    Conclusion: around 210,000 [creationist] sites like to quote the first line... alone.

  5. dont watch this

    bunch of ifs , one guy talkning and his using his dad as an expert. I think :) anyway, there are way better stuff to watch here

    There was only ONE way to get to the moon?!? and this proves "intelligent design"? There were many ways we could have gotten to the moon. The Russians did practically everything differently than the USA and they put probes on the moon and on venus. wtf?

    Clear as mud!

    I knew this guy had a suspicious charm....hmmmmm....I bet he works for Ray Comfort.

    Picking from true science the fact we should question every theory to improve it, attacking evolution without coming forward with something better himself

  10. bluetortilla

    Wow. When Christians resort to subterfuge rather than 'shouting from the rooftops' you know their religion is in decline.

  11. Likeyoudevencare

    The Atheist shills are out in full force. Any reasonable critiques on why this is bad to watch aside from grade 5 insults?

    Could it be, that the universe and everything in it, is the product of the forces, energies, materials and constants of the universe as they are (as random or precise at they seem to be)? Could it be, that if one of these "elements" within the universe were to be different, that we would simply have a different universe, a different definition of life?

    The basic assumption behind these "Improbability arguments" is that the universe as we know and experience it to be, is meant to be and that there can be no other way for the universe to be.

    I submit that this "documentary" is putting the "cart before the horse".

    In a virtually infinite universe the multitude of combinations of life evolving to suit the conditions could not be calculated. The Goldilocks principle that describes our existence is far from unlikely but very likely indeed.

  14. Sister Dharma Gettin

    They'll allow just about anybody to make "documentaries" nowadays. Don't waste your time or confuse yourself with this one. Pass on by. Trust me!

  15. Martin

    Thanks everyone, 37 wasted minutes I didn't spend...

  16. Pierre

    Very creationist support. Life on this planet evolved to the environment, not the other way around. When we find life on other planets, or moons will moronic documentaries like this explain that life requires liquid methane and subzero temperatures to exist?

  17. Francois

    I definitely believe that Zeus created the universe.

    I would forgive these guys if they didn't seem to suggest that it is THEIR god that created the universe.

    Putting away the bible is there a discussion for intelligent design? Can we have an intelligent discussion that we are more than what we understand ourselves to be? What is it that comes from consciousness? I would ask anyone to read some of what Dr. Stuart Hameroff had already presented on consciousness. There are questions such as this ;the brightest minds have no answers for. So forget sin and hell-fire and instead accept we are much more than we understand ourselves to be. Let's talk about what's inside each and everyone of us which is for lack of a better word Consciousness. And is our consciousness the same as say the twinkle we see in a primate's eye ?

    Jesus was probably right. He spoke for God, and God speaks for himself. We can not blame others for what we have created.

    Some times when I am naked and look in the mirror I say... Oh God! this can't be intelligent design, for Christ's sake! this is awful! I have the same reaction Alfonse X the wise had when he was shown the complexity of the Ptolemy's model of the world: He quipped, "If the deity had consulted me I would have suggested simpler and more beautiful mechanisms..." Yes, when I learn how my body works I have the same reaction, I could've done it better. This is not the creation of a superior intellect! this seems like it has all come together by some combination of chance and necessity.. Hmmm that's exactly the way it has been, darling, that's exactly the way it has been. Darwin would smile.

    I am not a christian. I have no religious beliefs at all. One doesn't have to think that anything which describes the programming of life is referring to an old man in the sky. We have DNA -RNA -genetics etc. This is programming. Where has everyone been? How can anyone believe that any view of life other than that which we are told to believe, is to be rejected. Where did that come from? The big bang theory demands that we dismiss even contemplation of that which was the essence of its origin in order to have it's described beginning. I find it amazing that nearly all comments are so narrow minded. Facts are facts. Why so negative? If it takes people who believe in some kind of God to articulate that which I find interesting, I thank them. I saw no attempt to convert anyone. I appreciate the topic being presented in an informative and interesting way. I can do my own fact checking. If people want to believe that they are without intelligence and merely a random meaningless occurrence like blundering dolts bouncing off walls on their journey through space and time, so be it. Celebrate your meaninglessness any way you want. It astounds me that anyone would be upset by this. What is everyone afraid of?

    Outstanding documentary. Brilliant. All of humanity needs to watch and to hear this. Humanity, as clever as it is, can also be so incredibly stupid. We have so many wars, so much brutal violence going on, so many gifted young people drinking themselves under the table every night of the week. Watch this video and wake up to the reality of life on planet Earth. And marvel at what a truly incredible world it is that we live on, and yet we're here for such a short space of time, and we miss so much. Enjoy "Programming of Life 2: Earth".

    It's nice that they didn't sit there and spout God and Intelligent Design. They were subtle, which is respectful. Unfortunately, they are not totally inaccurate, and I do find it interesting how people come out in troves to defend the scientific theories they believe, shouting as though saying anything otherwise is blasphemy. Modern science has become it's own religion. Sure, Intelligent Design is absolutely goofy. So are most accepted scientific theories that have no current way to be proven or disproved. It's all faith, to just believe in something, without any actual evidence, other than one's own perception of data and imagination. I do agree with the side topic of this video that critical thinking has been lost. I mean, there was a time when one would be ridiculed for thinking the earth was round. We are still that stupid.

    I think this site is being used to indoctrinate its viewers. Categorizing docs like this as "conspiracy" automatically stigmatizes it and thus it's rating and comments are not representative. But the damage is done. I'm guilty of having passed this one by because of the rating until watching it on a whim. It clearly belongs in the science category because it doesnt even mention anyone conspiring secretly once. It discusses science.. This site is going downhill fast. It's unfortunate.

    I don't understand what he was trying to convince me of except to accept Jewish and christian beliefs which must include mass murder of innocent people who get in the way of their accumulation of wealth. I believe in what is not what someone tells me what is. And what is is only subjective and even science is not objective look at Einstein working on his unified field theory he didn't want to believe that the universe was based on conscious reality. matter is mind and mind matter these two main forces interacting with one another these forces oscillate between themselves creating the universe we live in and are a part of we are the world we are matter and energy space and time we are consciousness and so is all matter in the universe.

  26. jorge delgado

    Where do they get how many atoms in the universe there is no one knows because no one knows how large or how small the universe really is these people are not intellectual leaders in any sense this is only an interesting view point yes we are here and you cannot calculate our probable existence
    this is just voodoo conceptualization based on a western religious view

    What about the moons man!
