In 1859, Charles Darwin published, "On the Origin of Species." In it, he argued that all of life on earth was the product of undirected natural processes. Time, chance, and natural selection.
Since Darwin, biologists have relied on such processes to account for the origin of living things. Yet today, this approach is being challenged as never before.
"Unlocking the Mystery of Life" tells the story of contemporary scientists who are advancing a powerful but controversial idea - the theory of intelligent design.
Using state-of-the-art computer animation, "Unlocking the Mystery of Life" transports you into the interior of the living cell to explore systems and machines that bear the unmistakable hallmarks of design. Rotary motors that spin at 100,000 rpm. A biological information processing system more powerful than any computer network. And, a thread-like molecule that stores instructions to build the essential components of every living organism on earth.
This compelling documentary examines an idea with the power to revolutionize our understanding of life ... and to unlock the mystery of its origin.
