On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin tackles another neo-Darwinian assertion made by Giberson and Collins in The Language of Science and Faith. In their book, Giberson and Collins make an offhand statement that a series of mutations can lead to such a novel structure as the eye. However, they fail to give any citation or discuss any evidence to back up this claim. Instead of simply accepting the neo-Darwinian explanation of the eye on faith, let’s take a look at the science behind it.
