It’s finally here — part 2 of Long Story Short’s Origin of Life series! In this upcoming episode, the extraordinary process of polymerization will be exposed for what it really is — an incredibly complex system indispensable to all life. What explanations have been offered from a Darwinian framework regarding the origin of this process? Have they missed some crucial details that, perhaps, would instead lead us to conclusions of design? We’re often told that origin of life experiments have simulated the production of life’s building blocks under conditions that mimicked the early earth. Or at least, that’s what many textbooks say. But is this really true? This video deals with one particular challenge to the evolution of life from chemicals — the challenge of

How do some birds, turtles, and insects possess navigational abilities that rival the best manmade navigational technologies? Who or what taught the honey bee its dance, or its hive mates how to read the complex message of the dance? How do blind mound-building termites master passive heating and cooling strategies that dazzle skilled human architects? In The Origin of Species, Charles Darwin conceded that such instincts are “so wonderful” that the mystery of their origin would strike many as “a difficulty sufficient to overthrow my whole theory.” In Animal Algorithms, Eric Cassell surveys recent evidence and concludes that the difficulty remains, and indeed, is a far more potent challenge to evolutionary theory than Darwin imagined.

Given enough time, can bacteria mutate into insects by chance? Can random mutations account for the existence of butterflies and whales and platypuses? What about the origin of the universe or the origin of man’s ability to reason? Come and hear scientists and scholars discuss the limitations of chance and the abundant testimonies to design, as they come to realization from physics to proteins.
