Evolutionary biologist Richard Sternberg challenges what he calls the “National Geographic” or “textbook” view of the fossil record as a support for modern Darwinian theory. In this bonus interview released as part of the Science Uprising series, Sternberg unpacks what the fossil record really shows, what we learn from population genetics about Darwinian theory, and how the Darwinian mechanism can’t Read More ›
One of the largest difficulties with evolution is the word itself. Supporters of Darwinian theory love to switch the word around so the average person can never be sure what they are talking about. Sometimes evolution means change over time. Other times it can refer to small-scale changes in populations, or common ancestry, or the idea that an unguided mechanism Read More ›
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 evolving life from chemicals: the challenge of creating biopolymers. Watch this video to appreciate how origin Read More ›
It’s often claimed that fossils provide convincing evidence for Darwinian evolution in the history of life. But is that really the case? In this newest episode of Science Uprising, join paleontologist Günter Bechly, geologist Casey Luskin, and evolutionary biologist Richard Sternberg as they explore the state of the debate over the fossil record and the evidence for Darwinian evolution. Plus, Read More ›
What is the best explanation for the fine-tuning of the universe? Philosopher of science Stephen Meyer digs into the evidence of fine-tuning and shows how it points to intelligent design. Along the way, he responds to those who claim that the multiverse hypothesis defeats the need for intelligent design.
Does the fossil record prove humans developed from ape-like ancestors? Or does it reveal that humans had a unique origin? In this lecture, geologist Casey Luskin offers some surprising evidence about the fossil history of humanity.
What can the chemistry of life teach us about the purposeful design of the universe? Join renowned chemistry professor Dr. Marcos Eberlin as he explores many ingenious features of nature that point beyond blind evolution to the necessity of a creative mind behind the universe.
In this bonus interview released as part of the Science Uprising series, geologist Casey Luskin discusses fact and fiction when it comes to fossils that are said to support the evolution of humans from ape-like ancestors. What is media hype, and what is good science? What about specific fossils like Ardi, Lucy, and Homo naledi?
