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.

  1. Sounds like an interesting documentary. While I'm not a religious person, I enjoy watching science and religion battle it out.

  19. I have a problem with History Channel and Discovery for some of these sorts of shows... the problem is when they talk about aliens and the like, people accept it for fact. Why, its the History/Discovery channel, so it has to be fact, right?

  27. I find it extremely hard to believe that the ark was levitating. Might have to check this out.

  28. Only thing that ever kills me about these is that they will show that it is possible for something to happen in a one in a trillion chance, basically, they find a way for it to happen, and people then assume it did happen. Basically they are fun to watch, but annoying when people try to use it as evidence something did happen.

  38. Want to know something funny? When the bible refers to the "Virgin Mary" It's not that virgin that we know, virgin also means young, so she was fucked anyway.

  39. this does sound interesting, i haven't seen it yet

  40. Interesting subject matter - I've always been curious as to whether there is any truth in the claims Dan Brown makes in one of his books (on Masons) where he says that early Christian priests predicted complex quantum mechanics like string theory. I don't even know what that means, but pretty spooky if they did predict it 2000 years ago

  46. I always found it interesting when science and religion are combined. it's a nice change from the constant arguing from both sides

    ReplyDelete
  47. I always though documentaries like this were interesting. But the narrator is what always kills it.

  48. Its sad to see whats becomes of the History Channel

  49. Its about time that science stop saying the bible is wrong and actually factually examining it for once.
