Review: History Channel Ancient Discoveries: Lost Science of the Bible
In this documentary, History Channel try to look at the histories in the Bible from a scientific perspective. Could it be possible, that at least some of the miracles described, was actually abiding the laws of nature? We will probably never know for sure, but this documentary at least confirms that it's possible.
One of the most surprising things they bring up, is levitation. The Genesis talks about that the holy arch (which by the way is still missing and subject to countless documentaries) is levitating. A Norwegian scientist shows through an experiment, that it's possible if you have the right ingredients – and more surprisingly; it's possible they had.
I think this was a great documentary. It show you a lot of things, and is built up by many experiments, with the Bible as the red line. This is great, because you can pause it if you get tired, and watch the rest some other time, or just completely stop caring about it, and still have gotten something out of the time you watched. I also liked the scientists they had found. All seemed pretty legitimate to me, and was interesting to hear from.
All in all, good watch, and I recommend it. Strong 4.
