The Greatest Show on Earth (2009) tackles the arguments made by the creationists who deny that evolution is a scientific fact, and shows their criticisms to be false.
Richard Dawkins provides the evidence that explains how the wide variety of life on Earth has developed through the process of evolution by natural selection, a process first discovered by Charles Darwin in 1859.

“I love these blinks as they present the evidence for the evolution of life on Earth. By explaining phenomena like natural selection, gene mutation and convergent evolution, these blinks are a clear and memorable introduction to how the planet’s great spectrum of life developed.”
– Thomas, English Editorial Lead at Blinkist
