Can you trust everything you hear about the origin of life? The short answer is “No.” Many popular science expositors overstate the evidence for the natural, chemical origin of life and promote gross misinformation to the public on this topic. This video reviews popular claims made about the origin of life and shows why they are contradicted by the evidence, misleading, or flat out false.
This is the sixth of several episodes about the origin of life presented as part of the Long Story Short series. If you enjoyed this one, you will like all the others. Clever, humorous, substantive, brief, Long Story Short, is an occasional video series that compresses key points in the debate between Darwinism and intelligent design into a very welcome format: concise, accessible, and funny.
