On this episode of ID the Future, Andrew McDiarmid talks with distinguished Brazilian scientist Marcos Eberlin, author of the Nobel laureate-endorsed Foresight: How the Chemistry of Life Reveals Planning and Purpose, about–of all things–diarrhea, the body’s surprisingly helpful (and sophisticated) system for flushing out that bad stuff.
The system requires (and happily has) a support system for preserving the good stuff. But it’s an all-or-nothing system requiring great selectivity and fine-tuning. Evolutionist Jerry Coyne says blind evolution could have done it all. But Eberlin says that a knowledge of the relevant chemistry and physiology strongly suggests otherwise.
