A major book and DVD documentary project—completed!

Building on the huge response to 2012’s Question Evolution campaign, CMI undertook a major new offensive to take even more ground in the battle to proclaim the truth of the Bible. The aim was to simply and concisely expose evolution’s fatal weaknesses.

It culminated in 2014 with the completion of a milestone book, and a 96-minute DVD documentary, both called Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels.

Appropriately, the Achilles’ heels of evolution are often in the very areas widely considered to be impregnable strongholds of this belief system. These areas are the topics systematically covered in both the book and documentary. They are:

  • Natural Selection
  • Genetics and DNA
  • The Origin of Life
  • The Fossil Record
  • The Geologic Record
  • Radiometric Dating
  • Cosmology
  • Ethics and Morality

We believe evolution theory has no answer to these weaknesses, once properly explained and understood. The book is like no other work that we are aware of, in that it is authored exclusively by 9 Ph.D. scientists. The documentary involves even more PhD scientists, 15 in all, and features striking footage and brilliant computer animations. All of these scientists received their doctorates from similar, secular universities as their evolutionist counterparts. Each is a specialist in various relevant fields.

In ancient Greek mythology, the great warrior, Achilles, was dipped into the river Styx by his mother to make him immune from all attacks. Holding him by the ankle, she failed to immerse his heel, and this led to his undoing. In common vernacular, an ‘Achilles’ heel’ describes a fatal weakness in spite of apparent overall strength and invulnerability.

We anticipate that the involvement of this number of science specialists, in addition to the power of the arguments themselves, will cause at least a proportion of evolution-believers to sit up and listen.

The book and DVD represent a direct, targeted demolition aimed at the very pillars of the foundational belief system underpinning our now-secular culture. It’s also part of the biblical command to reach the lost with the Bible’s Good News.

In a nutshell, it’s a comprehensive outreach tool like no other (see also 2 Corinthians 10:5). Our prayer is that this documentary will eventually be seen by millions through being screened in churches, television broadcasts, and by many millions more through personal DVD distribution.

  • Dear CMI, I would like to let you know just how helpful the new ‘Evolution's Achilles' Heels’ book has been. Of the many useful and educating books your scientists and authors have written, I consider this one of the most pragmatic and hard hitting.

  • Thanks for the book, Evolution's Achilles' Heels, it's a brilliant tool. So far I have given away 17 copies to clergy colleagues, youth leaders and preachers etc. I've got at least another half dozen people to give them to.

  • Thank you for all you folks do in the name of our Lord, Jesus. By the way .. your ‘Evolution's Achilles' Heels’ is amazing and a blessing. I have no doubt our Lord is pleased with it.
  • My family and I purchased and watched the Blu-ray version of Evolution's Achilles' Heels and thoroughly enjoyed both the quality and content of the film. It was very well done and it not only edifies the believer, but it makes the unbeliever rethink their worldview and consider Jesus Christ as their only hope. Thanks.
  • If we could award ‘Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels’ more than five Doves, our best rating, we would! This is an intelligent and remarkable look at the holes in the theory of evolution, and it features fifteen … Ph.D.’s that closely inspect the various downfalls of this theory.

  • Visually stunning 3D animations and dramatic footage help to show how the theory’s supposed strengths are, in fact, its fatal flaws—Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels. This is a highly informative documentary that everyone should see.
