Darwin's Dream was created to display the underwater spectacle of the Galapagos Islands. Filmed in only 6 short days. The amount of animals seen was unreal. Having seen hundreds of sharks, mola mola's, turtle, iguanas, penguins and even orcas. It truly was an experience of a lifetime. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it.
The debate between believers and atheists usually goes nowhere. The real issue is: what should fill the gaps created by the end of widespread belief? What should fill the God-shaped hole?
