The Theory Of Everything – Trey Smith

Wow — I just finished up my first, full-length documentary of Trey Smith’s … and it was great! The Theory Of Everything summarizes exactly what Trey practically attempts to cover — just about everything!

This film covers so many topics via Trey’s unique “vlogging-style” film-making approach (quick cuts and bits of information thrown at the viewer) it’s actually challenging to pinpoint exact talking points at specific times … but the overall topics covered include the complexity of life, DNA, evolution, metamorphosis, dinosaurs, the flood, etc.

In short, this very lengthy documentary covers about a hundred different talking points, at the very least.

In fact, if I had one criticism of the entire film, it’s that it is a very long movie (about 2 hrs. 45 min. long!) and there are no titles or indications as to where you are in the documentary or how much content is remaining. During the segment when Trey was describing things he wouldn’t hold against evolution in a hypothetical debate (“to make things fair”), I was convinced he simply had moved on to the next topic — but nope — about 15 minutes later he was back on track.

Still, Trey is great to watch, and you can see the improvement in style and approach over the original documentary he released (“Enoch: It’s Real”). I also liked how he spent a good deal of time talking about Jesus and what He did and how important He is to everything … when a lot of filmmakers would have skimmed over that topic (assuming watchers already knew about Jesus) and focused purely on the science-related content.

Apparently this documentary is still available on YouTube, so there’s no need to buy it on DVD (but buying does support the God in a Nutshell project). If you’d like a nice overall primer to what Christians believe in regards to many scientific areas or you just enjoy Trey’s work, be sure to check this out.
