In June 2009, Creation Ministries International released a docu-drama, The Voyage That Shook The World, that purported to offer a realistic view of Darwin’s life and achievements. It created a bit of a stir in how it treated comments made by historians Peter Bowler, Sandra Herbert and Janet Browne, and lead to a piece by the historians in the Newsletter of the History of Science Society. You can read my commentary of the whole affair (here, here and here).
Soon after receiving screeners from CMI (for which we are grateful), Jim Lippard and I co-wrote – honestly, it was largely Jim – a review of the documentary for Reports of the National Center for Science Education. That review is now available online. Comments welcome.
(I’ve been avoiding creationism here on WG, but I felt this was appropriate given the historical claims being made. You can read more about my ideas regarding historians and creationism here and here.)
