An Immunologist Explains Why the Immune System Isn’t an Example of Darwinian Evolution
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Donald L. Ewert, a research immunologist/virologist who spent much of his career studying the molecular and cell biology of the immune system, as well as theories about its evolution. Dr. Ewert recently wrote a response at Evolution News & Views to BioLogos’ Dr. Kathryn Applegate. Listen in as Dr. Ewert explains how the immune system works and why it’s not an example of Darwinian evolution at work.

The Wistar Institute is one of the world’s leading centers for biomedical research. His research, supported by National Institute of Health, National Science Foundation, and Department of Agriculture grants, has involved the immune system, viruses, and cellular biology.
