“Millions of people have sincere questions about the origins of the
earth and humanity,” said Tackett. “And there are contrasting views of
our history, one of which is in the book of Genesis. The question is,
which view is accurate? ‘Is Genesis History?’ makes a positive case that
the Bible is historically reliable.”

In this investigative documentary, Dr. Tackett treks the globe to
learn from experts in various fields and asks some of the long-standing
questions surrounding the book of Genesis: Was the universe created in
six literal days? Did humans evolve? Were Adam and Eve real? Was there a
global flood? What happened to the dinosaurs? Was there a tower of
Babel? This first-of-its-kind documentary seeks to shine light on the
origin of humankind and its history, with new insights on how the world
we live in came to be.

“This documentary will provide insight on questions that people of all
backgrounds and faiths ask themselves on a regular basis and should
spark some thoughtful conversation among audience members,” said Fathom
Events CEO John Rubey. “We constantly try to provide a variety of
content and dialogue for our audiences and this event is a great example
of that.”

“This film started from a conversation with my 10-year-old daughter
about science, history and the Bible,” said producer/director Thomas
Purifoy, Jr. “She wanted to know how the things in the world are
explained by what she reads in the Bible. Her questions led me down a
lot of different paths where I heard and saw some amazing things. I
tried to put as many of them as I could into the documentary.”
