Just in time for the holidays! Michael Gitlin’s The Earth Is Young is based on interviews with Young Earth Creationists, who find evidence of a 6-day, 6,000-year-old Creation in the geological record. These testimonies alternate with scenes of the slow work of dedicated paleontologists, pointing towards a world far older and more complex, if no less fantastic. At times bordering on science fiction, the hour piece elaborates an essay on the nature of Science, and the physical and ideological tools with which one builds a model of the world. ALSO: Ben Rivers’ Origin of the Species engages with a 70-year-old Scottish hermit, obsessed with “trying to really understand” Darwin’s book for many years, whilst working on small inventions for making life easier.PLUS implausible religious clips from the Moody Institute, Left Behind series, Scientology, A.A. Allen, and other kook cults. Free blood-red wine and pale-white crackers. $6.66*.
