Flight: The Genius of Birds
Flight: The Genius of Birds
FLIGHT: The Genius of Birds is the first film in Illustra Media's new series THE DESIGN OF LIFE. Each episode explores a different realm of the animal kingdom and the remarkable biological systems that make life on Earth possible. Photographed in North America, England, Peru, Greenland, and Antarctica, FLIGHT probes mysteries and mechanisms of a bird's anatomy, instinct, navigation, and embryology to reveal stunning provisions essential for life in the skies.
You'll marvel at a hummingbird s unique skeletal, muscular, and metabolic systems all vital to its spectacular aerial acrobatics; the endurance and navigational abilities of an Arctic tern as it travels from pole to pole during the longest migration on the planet; the instinctive strategies that enable a flock of 300,000 European starlings to evade predators at break-neck speeds; the elaborate network of a million component parts that make a single feather an aerodynamic masterpiece, and much more.
The poet William Blake wrote that to see an eagle in the air is to observe a portion of genius. In FLIGHT the ingenuity of a bird's behavior and biology showcase unmistakable evidence for design, purpose, and plan. It is evidence best explained by an intelligence that transcends the natural world.

"Wow! As I watched Flight, God's interrogation of Job 'out of the storm' flashed like lightening through my mind, 'Does the hawk take flight by your wisdom and spread his wings towards the south? Does the eagle soar at your command and build his nest on high?' Honestly, I did not think Illustra Media could produce a rival to their astonishing films Privileged Planet and Metamorphosis, but with Flight they most certainly have!"
(Hank Hanegraaff, President of CRI)
"Tonight my husband, my brother and I sat down to watch the copy of Flight we received today. At the end of the film, sitting in our den, the three of us applauded. Magnificent, elegant, way cool! My brother Tim, who has become convinced of Design declared, 'BARUKH ATA ADENOI ELOHEINU, SHE KAKHALO B'OLAMO' (Bless our Lord God, who has such things in His world!)"

"What an incredible film! The grandeur and design of God has never been so clearly evident as in a bird's feather. My wife and I were astounded by the intricate mechanisms and intricate details that enable a bird to fly . . . and we were equally impressed with your film Flight. We can't wait to share it with the rest of our family."
(R. O. - Seattle, WA)
"The producers of Flight should be applauded for their ability to make a film that informs, entertains and amazes. The photography was spectacular. The information was mind boggling. Outstanding work!"

Creation Biology is the study of biological processes and organisms, while operating under the assumption that God created life on Earth. The discipline is premised on the idea that God created a finite number of discrete created kinds or baramin. While these forms of life have the ability to vary and even undergo speciation, they cannot arise spontaneously from non-life, cannot interbreed outside of their kind, and cannot increase in genetic complexity.
