Summary Will the battle between creationism and scientific purism ever be resolved? In search of a more nuanced and illuminating dialogue, this film explores the views of free thinkers around the world who balance their spiritual sensibilities with genuine scientific curiosity. Conversations focus on the origins of the cosmos, living things, and the human species. Researchers, intellectuals, and religious leaders in France, Germany, and Turkey share their interpretations of biblical and Quranic passages, pointing out rarely discussed echoes of scientific concepts and explaining why faith and factual evidence don't necessarily cancel each other out. The program also takes viewers through a colorful chronology of the three major monotheistic religions, looking at historical periods in which the sacred and the scientific intersected - clashing in some cases, while in others forming a symbiosis.
