Moody Institute of Science Vintage Videos

The Moody Institute of Science educational films series are a collection of exceptionally produced vintage science films. These films take a comprehensive and holistic look at several interesting phenomenons and creatures found in the natural world. Each topic is scientifically explained which is then applied to creation - namely the Creator God. These films always keep on eye on the future while remembering the lessons of the past and seem well ahead of their time.

A Fish Family - The complete reproduction cycle of the blue acara fish is pictured. Included are the processes of preparing the nest, egg laying, fertilization, care during incubation, nursery construction, transporting hatchlings to nurseries and guarding the young. Close family relationship of the blue acara is emphasized.

You'll learn how these amazing insects live and work. You'll see their police patrols, sanitation squads, and air conditioning systems. And you'll begin to grasp their language, as you watch worker bees describe the direction and the distance of their latest nectar find. You'll be amazed at the harsh law of the hive, which leaves no room for the sick or unproductive members. And you'll find out why God's design for human relationships is vastly different from His system for bees.

And learn how each of them gives fervent testimony to the fact that this planet was not formed from ordinary dust. But from the loving hands of a living God.
Electri Eel - The electric eel lives in the fresh waters of the Amazon Basin. It can give an electrical discharge capable of killing a horse. This eel can locate fish by means of "radar," then captures its prey by knocking it out with a violent shock of electricity. In Experience With an Eel, Dr. Irwin Moon and his lab assistants demonstrate the eel's electrical shocking power. The study of the electric eel helps to answer many questions concerning the relationship of science and the Word of God.
Empty Cities - This 30 minute video is well worth your time. Watch for yourself this powerful history lesson and see why the cities and nations of the world have fallen and are now jungles.

And you'll peer through a telescope into the vast reaches of space, while you ponder the God who put the galaxies in place. The same God who gave His Life for us on the cross.
God of The Atom - Energy, the equivalent of mass; a radical conception, key to the atomic age. The idea expressed in E=MC² is actually quite simple. But it has caused a great revolution in scientific thinking. It means any object, a desk, a pencil, a piece of paper, just any bit of matter represents an unbelievable amount of energy. God of the Atom addresses man's spiritual bankruptcy and his need for regeneration.
Hidden Treasures - You don't have to visit the museum to find priceless works of art. Stunning jewels. Or riches untold. Just look around you.

This highly acclaimed video urges us to examine our lives. And to look beyond present struggles to the promise of eternal life.
Living With The Atom - The viewer learns about the discovery of the atom, its structure, its energy, and tests with atomic and hydrogen bombs.
Mystery of The Three Clocks - The human brain. The cicada or “seventeen-year locust.” Chemicals reacting to one another. These three very different things have built-in “alarm clocks.” Mystery of the Three Clocks presents a set of laboratory experiments based upon the mystery of these three "clocks,", introduces the “will of man” and concludes that although man can make his own choice, he cannot control the result of that choice.
Of Books and Sloths - The sloth. Nature’s champion sluggard. One of the most misunderstood animals in the world. As recent as a century ago, the sloth was regarded as a “blunder of nature.” To capture this story, the Moody Institute of Science did research in the laboratory and in the jungles of Panama. The message, Of Books and Sloths, points out the dependability and the accuracy of the Scriptures as compared with man's writings that must be constantly revised to correct inaccuracies.
Prior Claim - An unsuspecting insect is lured by a sweet scent. Suddenly the jaws of a carnivorous plant clamp shut. It's dinnertime for the Venus Fly Trap. Long before man invented traps to capture his food, these carnivorous plants were putting them to work. In fact, many of man's most ingenious inventions have been borrowed from God's original designs in nature. In Prior Claim, you'll explore the world of the trap-door spider, the archer fish, the rattlesnake, and many other fascinating animals that reflect the inventive genius of God.

Signposts Aloft - A tiny plane is lost in the clouds. The struggling pilot banks a turn to escape the dense cloud cover. His senses deceive him, telling him the plane has stopped turning. So he turns harder. But the nose drops. Speed picks up. And suddenly he's caught in a downward spiral, a graveyard spin. In Signposts Aloft, you'll find out how man's senses can be fooled in flight. You'll see experiments that dramatically illustrate the problems pilots and astronauts face. And you'll learn why man needs outside guidance from God, just as pilots need to place faith in their instrument panels.
The Mystery of Time - Time Lapse & Stop Motion Photography Video. The ideas of Time & Space are explored. Scientists use a "time microscope" or a camera running at 3000 frames per second to help explain time. This film is worth it just for the fact that they film drops of milk splashing in slow motion and put dramatic music over it. The elemental concepts of the theory of relativity are demonstrated. A science film about time and space. The marvels of science provide the visible evidence of a Divine plan of creation.
