“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.”

  1. Archaeological findings at ancient Jericho suggest that Noah’s Flood is a myth. Most Conservative Christian commentators in the past understood the flood covered the whole earth and its mountains. Excavations at ancient Jericho (700 feet below sea level today) revealed the site was first settled in the Neolithic Period (New Stone Age) circa 9500 BC. It was abandoned circa 587 BC with the Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem and Judah. Some Conservative Christian scholars opt for Noah’s Flood to be circa 2400 B.C. Jericho was 7,000 years old by 2400 B.C., yet, no flood silt was found of this era, nor of any other era, in this city’s long history. Conclusion: Noah’s flood did not engulf the world and its mountain tops, for it would have left flood silt at Jericho and there are none. The Mesopotamian account of the flood locates the flood hero (variously called Ziusudra, Atrahasis, Utnapishtim) as living at Shuruppak on the Euphrates river when warned by a god to build a boat to save man and animal kind from a worldwide-flood. Shuruppak was excavated in 1931 and a flood layer was found dating to circa 2900 BC (Jamdat Nasr Era), but it was quite local, caused by a flooding Euphrates river which left a silt deposit of only 15 inches. Noah’s Flood dated circa 2400 BC was not found at Shuruppak, which existed from 3000 to 2000 BC when abandoned after being destroyed by unknown enemies. However, Noah’s 2400 BC flood and the 2900 BC Shuruppak flood both occurred within the confines of the 3rd millennium BC, so we have a rough match-up of the millennium which preserves a worldwide flood account, biblical and Babylonian. No flood silt covers towns in the middle east from 10,000 BC to 1000 BC, be it Egypt, Canaan, Syria, or Mesopotamia. Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed the prophet all claimed Noah’s flood was a real event and alluded to it, yet there is no archaeological context for this event anywhere. This means Moses, Jesus and Mohammed based their belefs on a Mesopotamian myth, the Shuruppak flood of circa 2900 BC. That is to say Judaism, Christianity and Islam are founded on a flood myth of circa 2900 BC at Shuruppak.
