PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Season 6 episode 7 "God and the Universe" student video worksheet. (From the History Channel's website):
"Since the dawn of civilization, humans have wondered who or what created the universe. Religion offers a spiritual answer, but do the latest discoveries in physics show evidence of a transcendent intelligence, or simply that the laws of physics by themselves could have led to the universe in which we live? This episode embarks on a mind-bending scientific search for God, asking physicists and theologians if the seemingly miraculous way the universe has been calibrated to support life is evidence of a creator…whether string theory will eventually be able to rule out the existence of God…why Stephen Hawking says the universe could have been created spontaneously…and how an advanced civilization in another universe could have conceivably created our own."

I use this video activity to introduce concepts in the (last) Astronomy Unit X "Cosmology and Life in the Universe." This episode deals with very complex questions and theories on the scientific origins of the Universe and the religious implications - in an understanding way - with respect to both science and religion.

Worksheet activity contains questions that students can answer in order while watching the video. Answer key included. (The episode link to youtube is provided in the title if the video is not available on tape or DVD.)
