Gene Regulatory Networks vs. Darwin’s Theory

Dr. John Ankerberg: In a previous article we talked about body plans, but that’s not the only problem that you’ve found. What’s another one?  Dr. Stephen Meyer: Well, there’s a related problem, and it’s also emerged from studies in the field of developmental biology. There’s a famous developmental biologist at the California Institute of Technology…

Where Did the Distinct Body Plans in Animals Originate?

Dr. John Ankerberg: We are going to show you a clip that talks about the origin of body plans. This is fascinating. Watch this.  Narrator: In 1831, three months after his first exposure to Cambrian geology, young Charles Darwin embarked on an expedition that would influence the development of his theory of evolution. As naturalist…

The Cambrian Explosion and Intelligent Design – Part 3

Dr. John Ankerberg: In this clip we’re going to show that the body plan for an animal does not reside in DNA. So where is the information of each animal body plan stored, and where did that information come from? Folks, I want you to watch this clip.  Narrator: But the inability of random mutations…

The Cambrian Explosion and Intelligent Design – Part 2

Dr. John Ankerberg: This next clip explains why Darwin’s theory of natural selection and random mutation cannot account for what is needed to build a Cambrian animal. Folks, I want you to listen.  Narrator: Each of the thousands of different proteins in nature is actually a chain made from a specific combination of 20 different…

How Does the Fine Tuning of the Universe Point to an Intelligent Designer?

Scientists once thought that whatever the initial conditions of the universe might have been, given enough time and a little luck, eventually intelligent life forms like ourselves would evolve. But instead, during the last fifty years or so, scientists have discovered to their surprise that the existence of intelligent life in this universe depends upon…

Is God the Best Explanation for the Origin of the Universe?

I’m convinced that the hypothesis that God exists explains a wide range of the data of human experience. For example, God is the best explanation of the origin of the universe. One of the most remarkable facts about modern physics is that, in contrast to scientists of bygone days, modern science believes that the universe…
