Contains Many Real Pictures from the Mountain
Verified purchase
It's interesting how there's so much "gnashing-of-teeth" against this, and other similar Christian productions.
You can take a picture of something, which demonstrates incredible evidence, and you've got people saying it's unscientific, or suspicious, etc.
It's like people say "give me evidence, but as long as it's not too good, and only if it's just enough for me to say it's not convincing". LoL
Please "Report Abuse" on all the 1-star and 2-star reviews.
People dive-bombing productions, for stupid and unintelligent reasons, here on Amazon, is getting really, really old.
This documentary contains tons of documented evidence, and it's something worth watching.
It's as simple as that.

A poorly made docudrama.
Verified purchase
The subject matter was interesting enough to keep my attention to the end but this was an awful piece of work. First off, it's not a documentary at all. There are no videos, photos, or any evidence of their journey which leads one to question whether it even occurred. What we get instead of actual footage are very poor reenactments with voice over. The filmmakers claim to be following the path they believe is described in Exodus. Each location they are searching for magically appears without any effort. They were looking for where Moses parted the Red Sea and they nonchalantly describe finding a land bridge leading into Saudi Arabia but offer no actual evidence of this except for an aerial photo that was obviously not taken by them. It goes on and on from there. They were next looking for the Bitter Springs of Marah and sure enough there's a spring and the water is still bitter. Again no actual evidence of being there. Exodus says there was Acacia wood at the site. Wouldn't you know, there's some Acacia wood over there. No photos or evidence again. They get to the supposed mountain and there just happens to be an altar with a petroglyph of a calf. No evidence they were there again. Then they evade armed guards and climb the mountain at night and discover that the top is charred black as if there were a great fire. No photos or video of them being on the mountain either. Basically this was a nice fairy tale of two guys pretending to go on a trip, turning their lie into a fictional movie, and then dishonestly selling it. Add in a whole lot of proselytizing and there you have it. Don't waste your time, there are much better films on the subject.

Total garbage as factual as creationism
Verified purchase
These guys have a point to "prove" and manufacture evidence to match it. There is no science done. If their trip actually existed, there's no evidence of it. Everything is pure conjecture. The director has made several "creationist documentaries" which is a fun oxymoron. The entire field of creationism is that there is no research for their claims, therefore they must be true. Ancient Aliens is more fact based and scientific than this production. They even lie about their adventure, many places they claimed to have actually gone are not in Saudi Arabia as they claim, but are in Jordan. These "Christians" even claimed to have forged papers from the king of Saudi Arabia to travel to these places. So they are bearing false witness to travel in a country legally there's no restrictions to travel in. If you're going to make up malarkey it should add to credibility, not ruin it. These are false prophets. You are neither scientist or Christian if you believe this nonsense.

Wrong, Very Wrong
Verified purchase
I am Jewish, and I like to watch documentaries like this that explore the Old Testament. Christians often forget that the Old Testament is a book we wrote, written in HEBREW. The Christian Bible was translated 3 and sometimes 4 times, through three different languages at least, and the errors abound, especially the King James version. These fellows in this documentary are absolutely wrong, and if they could read Hebrew, they would know how wrong they are. For example, it was not the RED SEA, that is a mistranslation from Greek to English, I believe. It was actually the REED SEA, which is in a different part of the Middle East. See, the REED SEA is actually a salt marsh, which has a high tide and low tide. So think about a salt marsh sea with a high and low tide. It is actually more likely that Moses was smart enough to cross at low tide, but high tide came in and stopped Pharoah and his cronies. Did God help Moses part the water? Maybe, maybe not, I don't know, but I can tell you this: reading the Hebrew it was written in, they should be finding the reed sea, not the red sea, so they have failed. Again, for the people that will try to double down and stay wrong: REED SEA, not Red Sea. This simple FACT just makes this whole documentary moot and wrong and a waste of time.

I will also add that most of us Jews do not teach that the Bible is pure historical truth and only truth or it has no value and upturns our world. The Old Testament, which we created, works on four levels: literal, allegorical, metaphorical, and mystical. It doesn't have to be literal history for it to have meaning and depth and value. I don't know why Christians get so hung up on it being literal history ONLY, when it is so much deeper than that. I mean, it is OUR BOOK, so we should know. If you want to argue, but cannot be bothered to read the book on its original language, Hebrew and Aramaic, then how could you be so certain that the mangled garbled book you have is the right one?

Ultimately, I give the guys one star for effort, but there are better documentaries out there if you want to explore whether the Bible has any truth or not.

The film lacks evidence of their trip
Verified purchase
This film is fishy. Others developed these findings and actually searched out the sites long before them, but these two present it like they were the first to successfully do this. Next, the photos and videos are obviously not their’s—they aren’t in any of it and the quality varies between them. Next, they came up with a preposterous idea that they forged the King of Saudi Arabia’s signature and created a letter giving them access to the country. Look for the work of people who actually did the research and visited the sites—they wrote books and provided photos (with themselves in it), maps, and video where appropriate. Look up Jim and Penny Caldwell—they lived there and visited sites in their spare time. They also provide the scriptures to match their findings, which is an important reference when looking into this.

Should have given Ron Wyatt Credit
Verified purchase
I find it preposterous that ZERO Credit was Given to the 1st Western man "Ron Wyatt" to find not only Mt Sinai.But Moreover Noah's Ark,The Red Sea Crossing,Sodom and Gomorrah . And I truly believe Ron Wyatt was lead by God to find not only theses sites mentioned. But the ARK OF THE. COVENANT. SINCE HE DUG FOR YEARS HIS ACCOUNT JUST MAKES BIBLICAL SENSE.

Look at all of these fake reviews
Verified purchase
Among the reviews I read "no real proof, no videos, no pictures," But they had all of the above so what are they saying ??? Whether you believe it or not, it's palpable at how angry they are. It's also disgusting that they are trying to lie when the actual video is right here in it's entirety. I'm thankful that I'll never meet nor know these "people" who are seething with so much hatred and anger that they have to lie to the people watching this. It's far too common today where others have to actually lie to the world because they cannot deal with their own mental illness. They're ill because they are posting lies, and to what end? Who would believe a faceless poster versus their very eyes? The entire reason this was made (according to the men in the film) is to see if it's true.

In the end, the reality is if you have to have everything presented before you you're as ignorant as any common fool. If you need everything spelled out, without looking at the bits of evidence in my opinion aren't worth of real knowledge. I'll end with this, humans are simple creatures. People coming from the same area, same age, same mental competency have issues understanding one another. Now imagine someone of great knowledge, sophistication, and a higher existence trying to explain to them so they understand their existence. People to this day panic when 1 or 2 things are out of order or they can't comprehend the most simple things.

It's akin to computers. Billions of people use the electronics, but don't understand anything about them. Even though it's human made, they cannot explain how we go from an abiotic machine to something that can process, comprehend, and "learn." Now imagine trying to teach the fundamentals - most advanced parts of a computer to someone illiterate with a poorly functioning brain. (I say poorly because of how lacking in the intellect department they seem).

Where others take a fascination and wonder with "Religions and beings above them." The type who seek to discredit it, and lead people with false allegations are disgusting. Just as with aliens who just had information de-classified. For a century it was said that people who believed in them are insane... But now we have actual proof. Why hide the truth? Why stifle knowledge? I just won't ever understand. They are the "modern" thorns that prevent science from coming to good people who desperately need medicine. The ones who are stuck in the past with what they imagine to be reality. The type who are banging rocks with other rocks. Sad, sad, regressive "people."

Utter Nonsense, Lies, and Half-Truths Baked Into A "Documentary" That's A Work Of Fiction
Verified purchase
This little work of fiction presents itself as a documentary, but completely lacks any of the hallmarks of a scientific endeavor. Each and every piece of "evidence" that these conmen "discovered" is in no way shape or form proven or even attempted to be shown in full or backed up with any hard evidence besides what these admitted amateurs say. Pure conjecture mixed with a forced theological framework based in a literalist interpretation of supposed events thousands of years in the past make not for solid science and to present it that way while making patently false statements about no "archeological finds ever contradicted biblical accounts" is laughable and a simple google search and ACTUAL research not blinded by confirmation bias show this to all be hyperbole.
If this load of camel dung is a documentary, then it walks in the footsteps of its forebearer Nanook of the North, and there was only one set of footprints, where lies carried it.
