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

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...]

The Summit Lecture Series: Myths of Evolution with Sean McDowell, part 5

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...]
