Rediscovering the Mystery of Ourselves: Part Two With Science Writer James Le Fanu
This episode of ID the Future features part two of Casey Luskin’s interview with James Le Fanu, author of Why Us?: How Science Rediscovered the Mystery of Ourselves. According to Dr. Le Fanu, one of the problems with Darwin’s theory and where it stands today is that it presupposes that the argument is closed, draining interest and fascination from the question of our origins.
Dr. Le Fanu discusses the problems with the Darwinian explanation for the evolution of the eye and how the development of genetics has brought our attention to the deep inscrutability of the nature of genetic structures and the origin of life. Can natural selection acting on random mutations account for these features? Listen in as Dr. Le Fanu explains how science is on the cusp of this intriguing moment, rediscovering the mystery of ourselves.
