On this special video edition of ID the Future, Dr. Douglas Axe answers the question: How hard would it be for evolution to produce a different function for a protein?

Dr. Axe is a co-author of Science and Human Origins, a new book from Discovery Institute Press that boldly addresses some of the most popular evolutionary agruments pertaining to controversial claims that humans and apes are related through common ancestry.
