DVD and book reviews


The Christmas Star:

Lambert Dolphin, Physicist, Santa Clara, CA: Studies of the Star of Bethlehem often appear around Christmas time, many merely rehashing old legends and reviving antiquated speculations. Barry's marvelous all-new study, on the other hand, is head and shoulders above all the rest! The science is thoroughly up to date, the Biblical background information is deep and rich. This is not merely a "seasonal study" for the holidays it's a classic stand-alone study which I heartily recommend for all audiences.

Rev. Tim Barnhouse, Pastor North Mill Creek Baptist Church, WV: A very enlightening study that every Christian needs to see... Barry does a great job of stripping away traditionalism, and replacing it with the truth of Scripture. I will be using this DVD for our November Bible Studies.

Gwyneth, Wales, UK: I have just watched a remarkable DVD it is called `The Christmas star`. It shows through scripture, history and astronomy proof of the Christmas story. I thoroughly enjoyed it , and my husband , who can be a bit sceptical about these matters was amazed at the depth of study and accuracy of facts in this DVD which when put together seem to have dispelled some of his doubts.

I loaned the film to my pastor and he will use it in evening meetings during Nov - Dec because he was so impressed with it. I would recommend anyone to take a look at it.

Doug McIntosh: Just wanted to send a note of thanks after having had a chance to view the entire Christmas Star video.  It is absolutely wonderful, so packed with information.  I'm sure I'll watch it again and again

Norma Ramey: My friend and I watched the  DVD last eve and we were very  impressed.  Your research is so enlightening and  answered questions I have had for a long time.  Also it dispelled some misinformation that is in Christian circles.  Both of us agreed we needed to watch it again. Thanks so very much for your years of research and study .

from a pastor: The Christmas Star DVD was awesome, my church watched a segment a week in our Sunday School leading up to Christmas and it has really enhanced our December! 


The Judges review in awarding "Anomalies" the 2015 award for Best Pioneering Lecture Series:

This set of four films which articulate what science, in particular physics/astronomy, should be doing. Barry Setterfield begins by noticing that the measurements for the speed of light have given declining for over 300 years. Most scientists simply ignored or found seemingly plausible reasons for dismissing the data. However, Setterfield analyzed the “plausible reasons for dismissal” and found them wanting.

Next Barry looked at the data for measurements of Planck’s Constant and found them to be rising over time. Next Barry looked at the astronomical data for redshift in light from distant galaxies and found some more “unaddressed anomalies”. All of this took decades of research on his own in relative obscurity – with only a few from academia saying, “Wow, that’s interesting!”

Setterfield’s approach is great science. He looks for anomalies in the data and then sees where those anomalies lead. In contract, mainstream physics, astronomy and cosmology have established theories and seem focused on verifying and building on those established theories. Anomalies in the data are just ignored or some math bridge is built to reconcile them with established theories.

Setterfield went further and showed that while some alleged constants increased in value and others decreased, the equations yielding energy produced constant energy values, because the rise in one constant was offset by the decline in another constant. Setterfield went on to explain these anomalies in terms of the zero point energy of space and in terms of plasmas.

A lifetime of work has brought to light anomalies in the data (i.e., data that does not fit with currently accepted theories) – a major accomplishment in and of itself – and further has made good progress in explaining these anomalies.


Larry Uland, Indiana: "I am enjoying the DVD's thoroughly; and remain amazed at how Barry is able to comprehend the BIG picture, synthesize it into a unified concept, and then simplify it so laymen (like me) can grasp it."

Christie Michas, California: "I watched all 4 parts of Barry's Anomalies DVD this evening and thought it was AWESOME! My degree (1976) was a biology major/chemistry minor so I have minimal physics or astronomy background. However, Barry's presentation was so clearly explained that it really helped me understand the basic ideas. I am looking forward to reading your book about the Bible and Geology. Thank you for all your dedication, hard work, and commitment to seeking the truth. I am deeply appreciative and grateful to be able to learn from the fascinating material you have produced."


The Bible and Geology

"This is a masterpiece! Your approach is fresh and attractive as well as presenting the reader with a whole new sensible approach to earth’s geological history. Using atomic time for the main part of this report means any secular geologist will surely feel comfortable with the new geological order you make so plain and clear."

Ruth, North Carolina: "I have delayed in thanking you for the program you sent me to download: "The Bible and Geology."  It is most interesting and absolutely true.  I wish everyone could read it."


Signs of Our Times

"Your writings 'ding the bell'; re your new 'signs of the times'. Nobody had so well explained prophecy in all my years of trying to get a grasp on what Daniel et al were saying beyond Alexander and his four generals.
Like all of the rest of your writings, QUITE shareable!!"

"I've already watched all of it. I've studied end times prophesy interpretations a lot over the years, but it was always Euro-centric as far as the anti-Christ was concerned. Barry's teachings about middle east wars, Islam, and Turkey are much more up to date and compelling.
Thank you so much!"
