All the World's a TV and We But Images

Television is our culture’s principal mode of knowing about itself. Therefore—and this is the critical point—how television stages the world becomes the model for how the world is properly to be staged—Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death (1985).

What's your opinion of Christian documentaries (on apologetics or intelligent design) or productions such as the Jesus Film?

The Illustra videos are superb: no fluff, all the graphics highlight points harder to make with text or diagrams only. Usually videos detract from learning, but not these:

1. Unlocking The Mystery of Life
2. Privileged Planet
3. Case for a Creator.
