Here are some documentaries we’ve used in learning Science and Natural history. These were written and presented by Sir David Attenborough in conjunction with the BBC Natural History Unit. Attenborough considers himself an agnostic and strongly opposes creationism, but when Mars watched the videos, all she could say was, “How can he NOT believe that there is a God?”
Which documentaries have you found beneficial?
Am curious, how old are your kids???

Umm Pirani, I’ll definitely look out for those in shaa Allah, especially the ones about Islam in Spain.
Umm Tafari, we can’t thank Allah enough for guidance, truly!
just wanted to mention that he (agnostic) does believe in God but does not believe in a formal religion.
As salaam alaikum,
Really? He does mention evolution quite a bit.
Walaikum as salaam, sorry i should have clarified this, i haven’t seen the doc., my hubby was telling me that most agnostics do believe in God, but don’t believe in religion but atheists don’t believe in God at all.
Agnostics believe that the existence of god is unknown or unknowable – “a” = “without”; “gnosis” = “knowledge”.
David Attenborough has said in an interview that he is agnostic. He also said, “It never really occurred to me to believe in God…”
