Scientism Is Unbelievable

Historian of science Michael Keas critiques the idea of “scientism,” the claim that only science (not religion) is reasonable. He explains how this idea is based on fake stories about Christianity being at war with science in history. According to Keas, scientism also ignores evidence of how Christianity actually stimulated the growth of science. This presentation was taped at the Read More ›

Do Homology and Phylogenetics Really Support Darwin’s Tree of Life?

As more scientists have realized that the fossil record poses serious challenges to Darwin’s theory of evolution, many have turned to molecular homologies and phylogenetic trees to defend Darwin’s tree of life. But do these approaches really support Darwin’s tree? Nope. This video is part of Basics of Intelligent Design Biology, a video series reviewing scientific problems with the Darwinian Read More ›

Can Punctuated Equilibrium Solve the Cambrian Explosion?

In the 1970s, paleontologists Stephen Jay Gould and Niles Eldredge proposed a model of evolution called punctuated equilibrium, intended to resolve the lack of transitional forms in the fossil record. Can “Punk Eek,” as it’s often called, resolve the abrupt appearance of new animal phyla in the Cambrian explosion? This video explains why the answer is No — among many Read More ›
