Where Does the Evidence Lead provides compelling scientific evidence for intelligent design (ID). It traces the origins of the modern ID movement to a group of scientists and scholars who became disillusioned with evolutionary thinking. Instead, they were persuaded by the evidence that genetic information—the blueprint of all life—requires an intelligent cause. The DVD is a modularized version of Unlocking the Mystery of Life. It is ideal for classroom and small group applications in private schools, homeschools, churches, and other organizations. For information about discussing intelligent design in public schools, download Discovery Institute’s briefing packet for educators.
For a discussion and study guide of Where Does the Evidence Lead?, see Where Does the Evidence Lead? Discussion and Study Guide, by Ryan Huxley of the IDEA Center.
