New Video: Why Evolution Is Different

cinematographer, Darwinism, Evolution, Fundacja En Arche, Intelligent Design, Istanbul, Joseph Le Conte, Polish, species, video, Why Evolution Is Different
After presenting a talk entitled “Why Evolution Is Different” at a meeting in Istanbul in May 2017, I turned my presentation into a homemade video. The talk, and the video, looked at the two main reasons why such an extremely implausible theory as Darwinism remains so popular in the scientific world — “Le Conte’s axiom” and the similarities between species. It shows why neither proves the absence of design. (You are all very familiar with Le Conte’s axiom, though not by that name!)  In the three years since, I have continued to develop this video, and recently I enlisted the help of a skilled cinematographer who has done a magnificent job of turning it into a “real film,” which you can see below. The video is currently being translated into Polish by Fundacja…

Listen: Lee Spetner Takes Aim at Natural Selection and Population Genetics

earth, Evolution, ID The Future, Ira Berkowitz, Jerusalem, Lee Spetner, Not by Chance, Podcast, population genetics, species, The Evolution Revolution
On a classic episode of ID the Future, Ira Berkowitz interviews MIT PhD Lee Spetner in Jerusalem. Together they explore key arguments from Spetner’s books Not by Chance and The Evolution Revolution. Spetner takes on natural selection, discussing what it can and cannot do. He also reviews aspects of population genetics and the constraints the Earth’s history imposes on evolving new species. Download the podcast or listen to it here. Photo: Coaster from Darwin’s Café Bar, Salzburg, Austria, by Nathan Jacobson.
