I really enjoy Jonathan Park cause it teaches Creation Science in a fun and interesting way and it's based on Family!

I like Jonathon Park, and have several albums. However, I found it was not as good as AiO, particularly because it was not as full and well rounded.

They don't disguise learning points very well. AiO doesn't even have to disguise them, they are used in the form of life experience.

I haven't heard it, but I read The Changing Time's article AIO vs. Jonathan Park. It sounds like a very interesting counter-evolution action-adventure drama. Do you know where I can listen to the first episode online, or will I just have to buy it?

Creationism is interesting, but not always entirely accurate. In any case, evolution doesn't contradict the Bible. Of course, macro-evolution is absurd, and almost certainly untrue, but as I say, it doesn't contradict the Bible. Micro-evolution, on a side note, obviously does exist. (Man, that should get a response. I'm glad Hannah's not back yet, she'd rake me over the coals. ;))

Isn't it odd that both AIO and Jonathan Park's first album is called The Adventure Begins? I'm guessing that's a coincidence, but maybe AIO ripped JP off, considering The Adventure Begins: JP Edition was released in the late 1990's while AIO's Gold Audio Series was released from 2003 to 2006. Hmm...

I'm going to bump this...

I love Jonathan Park.

Sure, the acting isn't great, and the plots are quite corny ("MILES MORGAN?!?!?!" Every single stinkin' time... You'd think they'd stop being so surprized...), but I love them just the same.

I have all eight albums... The Jonathan Park Audio Series really sparked my interest in the Creation/Evolution debate, and I've been researching more because of it.

I think that it's ok. I like the plot of it, but I think they try to fit way to much into just 1 cd that it kind of makes it hard to listen to for me. What I mean by that is that unlike a normal conversation there is almost no time in-between one person talking then the next person talking. It's just very unrealistic to me in that it doesn't sound like real conversations. I know that others may disagree with me on this but that's my opinion on it. I like the facts it brings out but it is no AIO to me.

My siblings love them, but personally, I find them somewhat, corny.. The acting, the plots, it's all really predictable. They have good lessons, but i would rather get the same lessons from AIO :D

I like Jonathan Park. The acting is a little painful, though. But I think the story lines are better then the new Odysseys. And I love science.

How have I not posted on this topic yet?

I love Jonathan Park! Like everyone else has said, the acting isn't the best, but it's not that big of a deal to me. I think the audio production is excellent. JP has given me several production ideas for my skits. I believe their sound designer is Rob Jorgensen, so of course it sounds good. :D

I'm not the biggest fan of the writing, some of the episodes are a little predictable. But I enjoy them nonetheless.

I like JP, it's a good listen to, and I enjoy the creation science that they bring in with it. Even if it does sound like I'm listening to one very long run on sentence that each of them take the next part of. I've listened to just a few albums and only own the first but I may get into it more.
