Darwin’s Dilemma – Where did the information come from?

Dr. Stephen Meyer, author of Darwin’s Doubt, talks about the sudden emergence of the body plans found in the arthropods of the Cambrian fossil layer. The structures of these Cambrian animals demonstrate extraordinary complexity, requiring unique genetic information and at least ten different cell types to support these creatures as living animals. Excerpted from Illustra Media’s film, Darwin’s Dilemma – http://www.darwinsdilemma.org/.

Mr. Johnson is a Berkeley law professor who, spurred by the crisis of a failed marriage, converted to Christianity in midlife. He has written many books including, most recently, The Wedge of Truth.

DNA: The Message in the Message

We are so conditioned to expect scientific breakthroughs that exceed our expectations, Barr observed, that we reflexively reject any idea that science has limits. Yet science reveals not only the rich possibilities of nature but also its limitations. To give obvious examples, we know that we will never fulfill the alchemists’ dream of chemically transmuting lead into gold. We know that a parent of one species will never give birth to offspring of another species. Science reveals consistent patterns that allow us to make negative statements about what natural forces cannot do. To persist in seeking natural laws in such cases, Barr suggested, is as irrational as any primitive myth of the thunder gods. Read More ›
