The Genesis CodeLogan Bartholomew
Kerry Wells (Kelsey Sanders), a college journalist and committed Christian with an effervescent personality, has been assigned to do a story on Blake Truman (Logan Bartholomew) the college’s newest hockey superstar. As a relationship between them begins to develop, Kerry d... Read More
When Kerry suggests that prayer might help, he scoffs at the idea, convinced that modern science completely disproves the Bible from the very opening verses of Genesis. Kerry - who is herself suddenly confronted with a challenge to her faith on another front - sets out to prove that science and Genesis are not in conflict. Her quest leads to a startling revelation: Could it be that what science teaches us about creation and the story as told in Genesis are both true and in perfect accord?
The Genesis Code explores the relationship between faith and science, and explores the idea that the two are not as conflicting as once thought.

- science is catching up to Truth by ultima on 8/14/2013
Einstein was better than the some of us at putting it into scientific fact - but he knew he was onto something when he reminded his school teacher of the fact that "darkness" is defined as the LACK of light and perhaps a world without God would be a place lacking love. This movie tries to shed light upon the fact that there are patterns and parallels between science and religion. It's purpose is to open minds and instill a sense of the possibilities (something which the previous reviewer "mother of 4" needs to instill in her children, she who called it all "bad theology" and "bad science" - was that based off of research?) Thank you to FC for making movies like these available!
- science will some day catch up with truth by quality not quantity on 8/14/2013
...Einstein was just better at putting it into scientific practice. There are patterns and parallels between Science and Religion - we're just catching on. Apparently, the movie's theory is too simplistic for some people to accept - those who call it "bad science & theology" (were those statements by another reviewer based off of research?) The point is to get people thinking and open one's mind to the possibilities - something which I hope all mothers can instill in their young children. Thank you to FCB for making movies like this available, in times like these!
- "But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good" 1 Thessalonians 5:21 by Science College Christian on 2/6/2013
At first when I watched this movie I was completely on board with the science/creation mash that is protrayed. I am a biology student in College and found it often very hard not to protest every time my teacher says "3.8 billion years ago". So to find that both science and creation go together was releiving.
However, upon reading the bible and praying, i do not beleive the two views match and that is because the science the secular world has used to date the world in terms of billions is under much speculation even among non-christians. In fact, the age of the world ranges highly depending on what viewpoint you choose as a scientist. If you trace back the geneological accounts given in the bible, (Adam lived 900 years, his son lived ___years, his son lived___ years, ect) the world is 6000 years old, which even some secular scientists agree with based of other evidence that is being discovered. Also the movie gives the idea that a "day" for God is measured by the constant measurement of light, which is 3.5 trillion times faster than our measurment of time being a revolution of the earth around the sun. So what took 6 days for God, we measure as 15 billion years. But in the bible God says "there was morning and evening, the first day" while this movie tells us during that day, billions of years (and trillions of morings and evenings) passed by in the same amount of time.
This movie gets you thinking. But test everything and hold onto what is good. Do not just agree with it without studying the word, because in a year or 100 years science may ACTUALLY catch up with the bible in that the earth is 6,000 years old, not 15.75 billion.
- bad science - bad theology by mom of 4 on 1/29/2013
I wish I would have looked at reviews before buying this film. It is the story of how a college student lost her faith in God's Word and it promotes it as a wonderful thing! She starts out the film defending creation and by the end believes in evolution. The "science" they provide is bad science, does not even make sense, and the "theology" they promote is compromised bad theology. I was disappointed that Family CHRISTIAN Stores sold this to me.
