On this episode of ID the Future, Tod Butterfield talks with Dr. Jonathan Wells about a common myth surrounding Galápagos finches and Darwin’s theory of evolution, which was recently re-printed in the Washington Post. Dr. Wells discusses why a change in the finches’ beak size isn’t evidence of Darwinian evolution, and how the purported “blueprint” of how the Galápagos finches evolved doesn’t, in fact, exist.
