About Us

Our Approach

Rather than telling our viewers WHAT to think – we prefer to teach them skills that will HELP THEM think.

Our Story

In 2010, the idea for a documentary exploring the perceived conflict between science and religion was born. Although the internet is loaded with debates and viewpoints that are apparently reinforcing this conflict – more HEAT than LIGHT is being shed on the subject.

Vociferous proponents on both sides of the issue are failing to address the philosophical underpinnings of their arguments. Therefore, our approach hinges on implementation of critical thinking skills as opposed to dogmatic stances on the two primary positions: Evolution vs Religious Dogma.

Furthermore, we have also provided strategies that will help viewers evaluate arguments that often fail to meet the tests of congruence and pragmatism.

Viewers will learn how to use the Four Ways of Knowing to cross-check the quality of their opinions on any and all questions they encounter.
