Founding Editor, Creation magazine
“Spike Psarris, a former engineer in the U.S. military space program, has created DVDS that not only break astronomy down for you, but are vastly entertaining (our whole family has already watched them several times!). [They] feature stunning video clips, photos, and graphics, and are organized in such a way that kids can actually retain the information they see…
“The ‘What You Aren’t Being Told About Astronomy’ series gets a five-heart rating and our highest recommendation.”

“This museum-quality DVD offers some of the freshest and most compelling evidence for young-earth creationism your family will ever see. I had my notepad ready to jot down a few memorable quotes from the convenient onscreen text and summaries, till I realized I was simply transcribing it word for word. It’s that good!…
“Mr. Psarris enlightens us with hundreds of NASA photos, movies, animations, and examples taken right out of the headlines of the world’s most prestigious science journals. His logical arguments for biblical creation are so crystal clear that even young children will glean much from a single viewing… Your children will learn that even the fiery volcanoes of distant Io and the tail of a lonely comet can speak to the glory of our God!”
CBD Homeschool Catalog Winter 2012, page A25
“My science-minded middle-schooler loved this DVD. He felt that Mr. Psarris presented a lot of great information. After viewing the video, my son felt better equipped to answer his peers who believe humanity evolved from something instead of originating from Someone… The more scientific explanations I have for those who doubt God’s creation, the more credible my arguments for Creation will be.”
Maggi Beardsley, The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine, LLC
“You can see why I call this the best astronomy DVD ever made…[it’s a] stunning video, there’s great animation, Spike has a dry humor you’ll just love.”
Bob Enyart, pastor of Denver Bible Church and host of Bob Enyart Live (KGOV.com), reviewing Volume I
“Spike, you’ve done it again. We’re stunned. We didn’t think you could match the powerful message in your first video… But Our Created Stars and Galaxies is not only just as powerful, but this new DVD has even higher production value and is even more visually beautiful. May God bring Christians and atheists by the many thousands to enjoy this message from science and Scripture! Congratulations!”
With Real Science Radio co-host Fred Williams, reviewing Volume II
“If you haven’t [yet] enjoyed Spike’s presentations, you will absolutely love them!”
Bob Enyart, on Volume III’s release
“I have watched your DVD. Overall, I’m very pleased with it — it is well researched and presented.”
Danny Faulkner, Ph.D. (Astronomy)

Author of Universe by Design, The New Astronomy Book, and other books
“Hello Spike, Your DVDs are very well done with lots of great information that is easily understood by all ages. I will be promoting them at the museum. Keep up the great work. Thanks and may God bless you and yours greatly.”
Owner, Big Valley Creation Science Museum, Alberta, Canada
“Thanks for the look at your creation astronomy video. It’s helpful and straightforward… I hope that your work is useful to many.”
Don DeYoung, Ph.D. (Physics)
Chairman of the Science and Mathematics Dept., Grace College

Author of Astronomy and the Bible, Discovery of Design, and other books
“The third in the video series focuses in on the origin of the universe—the secular Big Bang model. In stunning color graphics, Spike shows the abundant scientific evidence against many aspects of the Big Bang model. This model is currently the popular understanding of how the universe was formed, yet it often contradicts itself. The evidence overwhelmingly supports the creation of the heavens by God as described in the Bible. This is truly an awesome DVD.”
Review by Creation Research Society Books
“I love this program! It’s very consistent with my research and my thinking on the solar system.”
Wayne Spencer, M.S. (Physics)
Publisher of Creation Answers
Author of The Origin and History of the Solar System, and Our Solar System: Balancing Biblical and Scientific Considerations
“The sheer weight of evidence for Creation presented in this video is astounding… I really appreciate that this video incorporates recent discoveries in space and clearly delineates what these discoveries mean to the study of science. Again, again, and again discoveries clearly support creation…
“Children will LOVE this video… Although my family watched the video in one setting the first time, we are now viewing the video segment by segment to better study and understand the material. I fully expect my ten-year old to begin incorporating these evidences for creation in his daily rhetoric. This is one of the few videos I do not mind hearing, ‘Can we watch it again, Mom?’”
Director of a Classical Conversations homeschool community in Chattanooga, TN
“Spike Psarris takes us on a wonder-filled tour of our universe… The breath-taking visuals and thorough examination of scientific evidence make this an excellent resource… Once you have watched this video with your family you will look into the sky with new eyes. You will see above you many, tiny, twinkling testaments to our Creator.”
Review for 4th Day Alliance
“I was totally impressed with your first Astronomy DVD. Absolutely top grade and very compelling. Keep up the great work. Your efforts get multiplied over and over as we use these materials out here in the trenches!”
“Wow! Astronomy II is superb.”
Joseph Calkins, M.D.
“My husband picked up your dvd on the planets in our church’s bookstore and we think it is absolutely wonderful! We watch it quite a bit as it is very hard to find anything on dvd these days that are worthy of our time!”
“Fantastic job! Really impressed. Beautiful and very informative. Can’t wait for Vol III.”
David Coppedge, crev.info
Former Team Lead system administrator on JPL’s international Cassini mission to Saturn
“Hi Spike, thank you so much for the DVDs you sent me recently! I had not been aware of your outstanding work prior to seeing these incredible videos.
“You do a masterful job in using the mainstream scientists’ own words to expose that the currently accepted ideas on the origin of the solar system, as well as the stars and galaxies, are not serious scientific explanations at all.
“Instead, they are failed hypotheses, and so obviously so especially in light of the abundant observational data obtained through the space probes of the last 25 years. Thanks for collecting and organizing all this material and presenting it in such a clear manner using such spectacular visuals.”
John Baumgardner, Ph.D (Geophysics and Space Physics), UCLA
Theoretical Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory
“In this second DVD subtitled Our Created Stars and Galaxies, Spike Psarris reviews contemporary astronomical ideas about how stars, galaxies and larger structures in the universe were formed. He does an excellent job of reviewing top level contemporary ideas on the origin and evolution (aging) of the astronomical universe along with associated problems inherent in those ideas. He combines a wonderful collection of astronomical photos and artist simulations with beautiful music and a fast moving script to tell the top level story for the lay viewer. Using quotes from many books, journal articles and experts he also brings out how tenuous and uncertain these contemporary naturalistic theories are even in the minds of secular scientists. Near the end he comes back to our sun-earth system and points out how unique our sun is in the universe. Finally he finishes with a wonderful collection of Biblical quotes highlighting both the divine origin and the purpose God had in creating the astronomical universe. While we creationists certainly can’t answer all the questions even we have about how God did things Mr. Psarris makes it wonderfully clear that neither need we fear the origin narratives of our secular, naturalistic colleague scientists. We all walk by faith. The only issue is, in whom do we trust—God and his word or our own conjecturing and guesswork.”
Volume II review by Tom Greene, Ph.D. (Astronomy)
“We are so blessed by this DVD, we have ordered multiple copies to distribute to some of the folks we know who should see it. It is an excellent production and we are sharing it with our church friends and with a college-age Bible study group that meets in our home, as well as other churches and local ministries.”
Jerry Crawford, Ph.D. (Physics)
Fort Lewis College
“Vol II arrived today (Thursday) and I watched it this evening. Its logic is clear and persuasive; it is a visual treat; its message of Christian truth is commendable and powerful. Vol I was a hard act to follow, but Vol II has surpassed Vol I. You are unflappable and have very clear diction, a trait few scientists have. Your pace is measured and delightful. If such giants as CRS and Creation Moments and CMI promoted Vol I, I am certain Vol II is assured a place in the sun.”
Curator, 7 Wonders of Mount St. Helens Creation Museum
“First, great new video/dvd! You left no galactic / stellar evolutionary stone unturned! I can barely wait for volume III. Thanks for all the enormous amount of time and work you must have put into producing this beautiful work of science and artistic design.”
“After watching Volume II of Creation Astronomy, I couldn’t find the words to describe my impressions.
“To me your depiction of the Greatness of God and His amazing Love for us couldn’t have been done in a better way. I was deeply moved in my soul throughout this video. I even watched it many times over. I believe that many will have a change of heart after watching this.
“I understand now your choosing of Psalm 19:1-4 at the end of each of your News Letters and videos.
“I will share this video to as many people I know. Hopefully in the future it will be available in other tongues (in my case in French…)”
“Just wanted to say that Volume 2 was fantastic! Every time I watch it I end up crying at the end just to think how little we are and why God should care for mankind at all. Everyone should see this video which completely eliminates the theory of evolution that is broadcast all over the airwaves by the big networks and science channels. Volume 2 is true science and a master piece.”
“Spike, I got the video today and I can only say that this is a spectacular presentation of science, as it should be, and Scripture, as it is.
“Thank you very much for doing such an incredible video. I was really impressed with the quality and amount of information you provide. Okay, I am ready for volume 3 now! :D”
“My wife and I attended the presentation you made at the Bible Science Association meeting at The Master’s College a couple of weeks ago, where I gladly picked up your galactic DVD (having bought your solar system DVD several months ago when they played it for us there). As an amateur astronomer for 54 years now, suffice it for me to say that you have clearly done your homework brilliantly rather than passively settling for the usual confabulations that pass for factual understanding in this field, and so have earned my respect and gratitude for the service you provide to those who would otherwise be misled by the story-telling that is done in the name of “science” either out of false pride or for effect.”
Charles Faris, M.D.
[Personal message on Volume I]
“Just saw the DVD on the Solar System which was very well done and informative. Thank you for giving God the Glory that He deserves!”
[A later review sent to me of Volume II]
“If you’re a fan of the “Universe” series, you probably think that scientists have solved the mysteries of the formation of stars and galaxies. However, in Creation Astronomy’s “Stars and Galaxies” video, host Spike Psarris opens by exploding that perception, citing textbooks and scientific articles that reveal the uncertainty of the current models. Using stunning images from the Hubble space telescope and other sources, he reviews the wide variety of stars in the universe, and then compares them to our sun. If the Big Bang model of the formation of the universe never made sense to you, Psarris sheds light on some of its flaws, including the presence of “mature” galaxies at the distant corners of the known universe. Throughout the video, Psarris also builds a convincing case for a Creator of the heavens, who “calls the stars by name.” Finally, a look at the amazing universe that God created from someone who believes that He did!”
Virginia Stark-Vance, M.D.
“Hi Spike, I just finished Volume II-Stars and Galaxies. Great job! I had ordered 2 DVDs from you just a couple of days ago and they arrived quickly. The information combined with the beauty of both (Volumes I & II) of the videos is a fabulous combination.”
“Yesterday, a friend and I watched your new DVD. I was blown away by the beautiful pictures you used and the facts you presented…
“One final question: Is there a prognosis for when we can expect your next DVD?”
Gert-Jan van Heugten
“Loved the Astronomy video. We are homeschoolers and my youngest daughter watches it over an over again. Keep up the good work for the Glory of God.”
“My 9 year old son can’t watch your DVD enough and I love the way the information is presented. Thank you for your work and I do hope you can produce more DVDs soon.”
“We absolutely LOVE your DVDs! I was crying in one part where it is just so REAL. : ) This has a great way of showing how real God is.”
“Spike! Awesome video! As with the first one, even our 4-year old likes it. we all love it! Thanks for all the work you put into this project.”
“Hello Spike! I’ve received your new DVD today and wanted to tell you it is absolutely marvelous! I can’t wait to show this one to my atheist friends too 🙂 Thank you for putting this together!”
“The film nearly had me in tears towards the end, and that is rare that a film does that to me. I much look forward to your 3rd volume, not forgetting to mention your newsletters too.”
“Your first one is one of the more “watched” DVD’s that I have. My wife generally doesn’t like space stuff, but she likes your DVD.”
“Holy cow what an awesome video! I loved the first one but the second one, “Our Created Stars and Galaxies,” is beyond great! The information is very useful and was presented in the perfect way.”
“We absolutely loved the first video. Not only informative but also humorous! Ta-da-da-dum!!! Here comes another asteroid!
“I am a big fan of getting out the word about the truth of the Word and the scientific evidence to back God up!… I can tell you that everyone who has watched it with me has been impressed. I put your site on my links list and my wife and I have been waiting for video two like fantasy fans were waiting for the second Lord of the Rings movie to be released.”
“G’day mate. Loved both of your DVD’s – in fact my wife and children and I cannot get enough. Be encouraged as your work encourages us, our friends, family and members of our church. We have also shown the first DVD to an evolutionist friend of ours who in the face of this truth is beginning to doubt his ‘faith’ in evolution. Be encouraged, your work is reaching people across the other side of the world here in Australia. May God uphold you, protect you, lead you and guide you.”
“This is the second DVD in the series entitled: “What You Aren’t Being Told About Astronomy.” Many of you have watched Spike Psarris’ first Video on Astronomy, “Our Created Solar System,” and were given a wealth of information about how the universe declares the glory of God and how genuine scientific data corroborates the biblical record of creation.
“Now Spike Psarris has poured his passion for the biblical account of creation into a second Video presentation, applying his knowledge of science and astronomy to debunk evolutionary arguments so often encountered in our times.
“In this second Video presentation you will be treated to amazing pictures of stars and galaxies, and marvel once again at the infinite greatness of God. At a time when many are adopting the “old earth,” evolutionary view of our universe, Spike Psarris presents a much needed corrective based upon solid science and a high view of Scripture.”
“I bought both of your dvd’s, and I think they are fantastic!!! I have a Ph.D. in organic chemistry (B.S. from the University of Washington, M.S. from Indiana University, and the Ph.D. fro UC/Santa Barbara). I grew up just south of Tacoma.
“While in college I looked at the evidence for creation versus biological evolution and found that the creation evidence made much more sense. I saw the holes in the dating methods. What I don’t understand is that creation has been fought against teaching in schools because it is religion-based; I look at evolution as no different: since spontaneous generation cannot be demonstrated in the laboratory, you have to accept that it happened by “faith,” and that makes it a religion, not science.
“I heard a creation vs evolution debate between scientists who came to present their sides when I was at UCSB, and the creationists were very scientific in offering the evidence; the evolutionists did nothing more than present an emotional tirade against God. Evolutionist friends of mine attending the debate were embarrassed about their side and were honest enough to admit the creationists won.
“Now you are attacking “evolution” from the astronomy standpoint and using quotes from their side to discredit their theories. For me, as a scientist knowing the law of entropy, it never made any sense to me that gas clouds in space would ever want to form stars, but, rather that stars die and the universe will ultimately die a heat death if left to itself. I commend you for your work, and I can’t wait for the next dvd covering the Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy, etc.
“Keep up the GREAT work!”
Dana Paul Svedberg, Ph.D.
“So when is the third DVD going to be released? The first two are astounding! Their visual impact is only overmatched by the power of the Truth they convey. I received a BS in geology in 1975 and was an unsaved, evolutionist churchgoer until 1990. That was the year I was confronted with the scientific evidence for creation and the Flood and was saved. Creation is not a side bar issue as you also well know. It’s the foundation of the gospel. Thank you for your obedience to the Lord.”
“Just wanted to say what terrific content on the solar system and stars and galaxies was contained in your DVDs.
“It’s great to see such God honouring as well as scientifically accurate content which left me with only complete admiration for my creator. Thanx :)”
“Astronomy II is amazing. The photography is detailed and beautiful, and the research is cutting edge. I was awed by the portrayal of God’s handiwork, and humbled by God’s infinite creative power. The Biblical messages were well chosen and thought-provoking. Thank you, Spike, for these great DVDs!”
“I am a really big fan of your videos… All of this came about when I bought a ceiling mounted solar system model for my daughter. She picked it out herself. It came with a cd that explains the solar system from a secular perspective. As a Christian, I wanted to give her the Christian perspective and struggled to find anything that was detailed and high quality… I watched [your] video about 5 times and showed it to my daughter… I am soooooo ready for the next one. When do you estimate it to be ready? This year? Next year?”
“God bless you for these wonderful, entertaining, eye-opening, and truth-revealing videos. I purchased both volumes (Our Created Solar System and Our Created Stars and Galaxies), and now I have a treasure chest of information at hand with which to counter evolutionary arguments from the Bible bashers, God haters, and atheists. I studied science and mathematics in college, with an emphasis on astronomy and space science, and NEVER learned about the revelations you provide in these magnificent videos. I can’t wait until volume III makes its debut.”
“Dear Spike, I have just watched the DVD.
“It is amazing. Very good presentation of the arguments and so many videos and images!
“It must have taken you an enormous effort to collect them and make the arrangements for using them.
“God bless you for that, because it is really glorifying the Lord.”
“I watched the first DVD after attending a CMI seminar here. The DVD was mind boggling awesome. God bless you and the work you are doing. Friends of mine are going to the second meeting this morning and hopefully are able to pick up the second DVD.”
“I have just watched the second DVD you have released (‘Stars and Galaxies’) … and it is brilliant!
“It really was so well presented; very professional and an extremely high quality production. My genuine congratulations and thankfulness for your hard work and unique ministry.
“I am a founding member of our local Astronomy group, and always am personally challenged to lift their understandings beyond the parroted evolutionary belief. Your work is greatly assisting me in this.
“Thank you for your continued work to reveal the glory of God in the cosmos. I really look forward to future presentations.”
“I just had to let you know how very much our family is enjoying your DVDs. These are by far the best Christian astronomy videos we’ve ever seen (and we own quite a few)! Thank you for your logical, sequential, truthful and humorous presentation of the information. We have been recommending these to all of our friends–homeschoolers or not! Please keep more volumes coming!! God bless you and this wonderful ministry!”
“Finished watching your Astronomy, Vol. 1 DVD. It was one of the most impressive, thorough and well-done creation DVDs I’ve found, especially about astronomy, and I’ve seen hundreds. I was not expecting such quality. I saw [your] presentation at the Seattle Creation Conference and was expecting something like that, but was amazed by everything else you added.
“Please do yourself a favor and put a more thorough product description on your website about your DVDs. I think it will increase sales. You could mention the brilliant photo resolution, background music, and depth of information to start. I would have bought it months ago if I had known more of the content quality and quantity.
“I eagerly await shipment of Vol. 2. All the blessings to you in your godly endeavors.”
“It’s hard to express the joy and relief that I have after your great work. I am now a new, old, confident young earth creationist! After all what is really to difficult for our God . If our God is creator at all … bringing all things from nothing! He is creator OF ALL! He needs no help or improvements, no time to evolve. He spoke and it was so! Scientists with everything from nano atomic genetic manipulation with supercomputers giving superb intelligence have yet to make one protein. And even if they do some day, It will only prove creation because it required intelligence. So ya this is a big deal for me and is closing some of the final pages on my evolutionary laden atheistic back ground.
“This is what i posted in our youth pages on face book and yes we have played your dvds in class. thanks again.”
“My wife and I have viewed both Volumes 1 and 2 and found them to be fascinating, informative and refreshing! Is it permissible to show my DVD’s to a church audience? Also, there was a mention of Volume 3. When is that due to be released? My wife and I will pray that your DVD’s have a positive impact in winning people to Christ and in strengthening the Christian faith of others.
“Thank you and God bless!”
Port Orchard, WA
“These DVDs are EXCELLENT! Do you know what the ballpark estimate of the release date would be of the next one?”
“Newest DVD is fantastic, just an absolute pleasure to watch. I really admire your crystal clear facts and how thorough you are with your refutations, the way you just let the secular literature speak for itself, not to mention the way you show that the Bible so obviously and easily speaks for itself also. I’d like to officially put in my pre-order for the next volume! Keep up the good work mate, love it.”
“Spike, I just watched your Volume II yesterday with a small group of five high-school teens in a class I teach at my church. I just want to give you a shout of encouragement. I inflict numerous creation videos on these poor kids; they’ve become somewhat jaded over the years. But your video held their attention.
“Not only did you hold their attention, but they arranged to make a *second* trip to church later in the day to finish the video. I had planned to watch half yesterday and half next week. The kids were not interested in waiting. We came back in the evening and finished Volume II, and I am under orders to hurry up and order Volume I, which I have already done.
“These are high-school teens. One is science geek. Another does not regularly attend church, and does not really identify as Christian. Yet you held their rapt attention. They were not bored. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful video.”
“We are featuring the “What You Aren’t Being Told About Astronomy” in a monthly Dinner and A Movie program at our small church in Orlando, FL. They are beyond excellent!
“The humor, pace, production values, logic, and avalanche of evidence from secular sources, and the connection of it all to the truth of the Bible, make for a powerful, watchable, convincing revelation of the Glory of God (which we define as “the shining character of God, reflected in our praise”).
“Thanks so much, and may God continue to bless and expand your ministries.”
Pastor Ron Heffield
New Life Community Church
“I just finished watching ‘Our Created Universe’. One word: WOW. That was awesome.
“Thanks for a great third video, Spike. ‘Our Created Solar System’ and ‘Our Created Stars and Galaxies’ were outstanding, and I was just hoping that vol. 3 would meet expectations, but that was beyond anything that I had hoped for.”
Young Joon Kim
“I work at the Creation and Earth History museum in Santee Ca and on Thursday nights we have creation classes. Recently Spike gave an excellent 1 hour plus power point presentation on our created universe and solar system which I highly recommend. Just this last couple of weeks I showed his DVDs to about 30 inmates at Donavan State Prison and they were GLUED to the TV. If you don’t have opportunity to attend one of his presentations, buy the DVDs, you will learn more truth about astronomy in a couple of hours that you’ve learned your entire life and be very glad you watched them, consider inviting your friends.”
