Metamorphosis — A Serious Challenge to Darwinian Evolution

A (Rescheduled) Webinar Hosted by the Colorado Chapter of the Science & Culture Network

The Colorado Chapter of the Science & Culture Network invites you to join another webinar on one of the greatest challenges to Darwinism. This webinar is being offered for a second time since technical issues were encountered the first time around. Here is a brief teaser, provided by the chapter:

Darwinian Evolution is based on a series of small step-wise changes, each of which increases the survivability of the species. This explanation seems to fit how a species might adapt to small changes in climate or food supply over a long period of time. However, this doesn’t explain major changes to a species’ body plan, especially when the change must occur in a short period of time. Metamorphosis (from caterpillar to butterfly) is one such roadblock, one that seems to be an insurmountable hurdle to the Darwinian model. The complete list of changes that occur in one to two weeks is astounding. Is Richard Dawkins right when he says that Darwin’s Theory of Evolution allows an atheist to be “intellectually fulfilled”?

Join us in exploring these questions and more with our speaker Tom Siewert. Tom is a (mostly) retired metallurgist. He received a BS in Math and Physics, before moving into Materials Science, then finishing with a Ph.D. in Metallurgical Engineering. He is now spending his free time exploring some of life’s generally accepted, but poorly supported ideas. He became a supporter of the intelligent design movement when he realized how well it explained many of the seemingly paradoxical aspects of life on earth. Tom also states that “For topics in biology, it helps a lot to have a wife who is a biostatistician.”

This is a free online event hosted via Zoom. No registration is required. To join, mark your calendar now and then return on the day of to click the “Join Webinar” link at right.
