What are the chances that life on earth “just happened”?

The Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston’s new VCAT project is one of the coolest I’ve seen. The film series walks viewers through the Catechism, one YouTube video at a time, and is designed to stir the heart while speaking to the mind. I think it’s the perfect example of the “new expressions” called for by the New Evangelization. Bishop Michael Bransfield and the creative teams at Likable Art and Outside da Box deserve big kudos.

Their latest video entry, which was just posted today, examines the claim that life on earth just randomly sprung into existence. It concludes with a short but powerful response:

“The world is not an accident; you are not an accident.”

If you missed the previous two videos, you can find them below. Throughout this Year of Faith, more will be released, one video per month, and can be found on the VCAT website.


Also, here’s Bishop Bransfield commenting on the “Pursuit” video above: “If we can reach the knowledge that God is really hounding us, that we’re not just looking for God, we will know what it’s like to be a true Christian.”
