The elegance of nature: randomly evolved or purposefully designed? The answer lies in the cell. Michael Behe explores the building blocks of the life. Discover an unseen world of genetic coding, fabulous integrated systems, and astonishing machines. It’s not your typical biology class. It’s a five part series on complexity in nature: DNA, genes, mutation, and new science on the Read More ›
Is homology due to common descent or common design? Is descent with modification overwhelmingly obvious? The standard definition of homology is the similarity of the structure, physiology, or development of different species of organisms based upon their descent from a common evolutionary ancestor- the structural identity of parts in distinct species such as the human hand, the wing of a Read More ›
We are pleased to announce the Conference on Engineering in Living Systems (CELS 2020) to be held in spring 2020 at Biola University. CELS 2020 brings together leading engineers and biologists in order to: (1) apply engineering principles to better understand biological systems, (2) craft a design-based theoretical framework that explains and predicts the behaviors of living systems, and (3) Read More ›
Steve Meyer, Director of the Center for Science and Culture at Discovery Institute, gives an end of year thank you to our supporters, reviews the exciting progress made in 2019, and even makes an announcement about his next book.
