The Summit Lecture Series: Myths of Evolution with Sean McDowell, part 8

The Summit Lecture Series 1

In Biology: Concepts and Connections, a 2009 textbook, in reference to the homology of several different existing and extinct creatures, it was written: “Also providing evidence for evolution… Anatomical similarities between many species give signs of common descent.” It could have, maybe even should have also said, “Also providing evidence for intelligent design… Anatomical similarities between many species give signs of a common designer.”If they had posted both of these facts, it would t … [Read more...]

Right off the bat (pun intended), we see a wo … [Read more...]

To purchase the entire DVD set of the Summit Lecture Series, visit summit.org.Let’s look at Darwin’s Tree of Life. At the bottom of the diagram is the first ancestor and over time, it shows a development through random mutation and natural selection into all the living organisms. It’s like they’re branched together like a tree:This was one of Darwin’s most famous examples that he pointed to in his efforts to clarify his theory. He went on to say: “Why then is not every geological for … [Read more...]

To purchase the entire DVD set of the Summit Lecture Series, visit summit.org.Charles Darwin proposed a mechanism that causes the process of evolution from a common ancestor to take place without an intelligent agent involved. His mechanism is natural selection acting on random mutation.That’s the core of Darwin’s theory.So, with that being said, let’s take a look at some of the evidence:First off, let’s look at the Miller-Urey Experiment. In 1952, Stanley Miller and Harold Urey s … [Read more...]

They looked a little different from one another, so he concluded that they must have evolved over time. Perhaps they did, but the finches still remained finches. Therefore, it was change within an existing kind or species. Now, I agree that natural selection may cause this. Natural … [Read more...]

To purchase the entire DVD set of the Summit Lecture Series, visit summit.org.If science is simply the search for the natural explanation, then any type of intelligent design or creationism is ruled out before we even begin the investigation.Now, this is not, traditionally, how science has been defined. It’s really been just in the 20th century that people have changed the definition of science. And since they have changed the definition of science, evolution has been accepted by de … [Read more...]
