How the Earth Was MadeTV-14

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


Investigate with HISTORYô the origins of some of the most well-known locations and geological phenomena in the world. From the Great Lakes to Iceland, the San Andreas Fault to Krakatoa, How the Earth Was Made travels the globe to reveal the geological processes that have shaped our planet. Spectacular on-location shooting, evidence from geologists in the field, and clear, dramatic graphics combine in this stunning 13-part series to roll back the millennia and show how the immensely powerful, and at times violent, forces of geology have literally shaped the world we live in. With rocks as their clues and volcanoes, ice sheets and colliding continents as their suspects, scientists launch a forensic investigation that will help viewers visualize how the earth has evolved and formed over millions of years. Locations covered in How the Earth Was Made include Hawaii ñ a remote island chain brought to being by the movement of super heated magma deep within the earth, to the Marianas Trench, a spot in the sea deeper than Mount Everest is high, where the ocean floor disappears into the centre of the earth.

Royal Aces has no microwave

Royal Aces: Nor do we "know" how a microwave oven works. After all, we can't "see" the water molecules, nor can we "see" the precise radio frequencies that interact with those molecules to excite them and generate heat. It's all based on a theory. Of course, most of us do accept that we "know" how a microwave works, except for you, which is why you probably refuse to purchase one, you treasonous dolt. (It is treason to deny science, for to do so ensures the downfall of this Republic. Benedict.)

How the Earth was Made.

The explosion of information and evidence that has been discovered over that last 20 years has made the Theories of how the stars and planets were basically formed irrefutable. The original, How the Earth was Made special was spot on. I am glad to see the History Channel continue is as a series. Although you can reason with Christians who walk around going "LA LA LA LA I can't hear you" The evidence is pretty damning that we are made of star stuff. Now that you can observe that the gas and dust residue of a supernova contains all the of the elements necessary to make a solar system with rocky planets, it is pretty astonishing that people cling to biblical stories that are not only self contradictory, but have been pretty much plagiarized from mythologies that came before. The virgin birth/resurrection story arc is hardly new. Look at the stories surrounding the egyptian god Horus and you will find that a lot of stories of the new testament were already there a thousand years before Jesus was born. God did not make iron, carbon nitrogen and oxygen. Nuclear fusion of a Blue Giant 10+ times the size of our sun did. (See The Universe SuperNova) After having been unplugged from the cosmology and geology worlds for the past 15 years. I hope that How the Earth was Made with enlighten me to all of the great new discoveries much like The Universe has done for me.


The guy that gets his "facts" from the bible questions the validity of this show. Shocking.
