On this episode of ID The Future, CSC’s Casey Luskin examines National Geographic’s pro-evolution article “From Fins to Wings,” by Carl Zimmer which quotes Harvard microbiologist Howard Berg saying “The basic idea of evolution is so elegant, so beautiful, so simple.” As Luskin shows, the article misses the target in a number of ways. Luskin asks In our experience, does a “simple” process generate the type of vast complexity found throughout biology? Then he shows that Zimmer’s answer is a just-so story.
