Storyline

The relationship between science and religion is examined (in the style of the Bell Telephone TV shows from the same era) using historical re-enactments and the statements of eminent scientists (illustrated with animation). Was the creation of the Universe and life all due to chance, or by divine plan and direction ? The Mormon viewpoint is given, that the Earth was divinely created for mankind to inhabit, with all men having dwelt with God before birth. Men must gain mortal bodies to prove themselves worthy to return to the presence of God as they struggle and search for truth. Religion gives impetus to the quest for answers in science, and to answer our questions about our origin, purpose, and existence after death. Science supports true religion.

Trivia

Judge Whitaker, Bob Stum, and Tyler Rogers flew in a chartered twin-engine Piper Apache to Huntsville, Alabama to film Werner von Braun's beliefs about immortality, but found that Dr. von Braun's schedule had been affected by heavy rains, and he would not return for three days. They decided to wait, setting up lights ahead of time. Almost the first thing Dr. von Braun said was, "If I keep up this pace, I will believe in MORTALITY." After the filming was complete and viewing some sophisticated rockets, they boarded the tiny Piper for the rough flight home. See more »
