Science & Human Origins: Interview with Dr. Ann Gauger

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Ann Gauger, co-author of Science & Human Origins and senior research scientist at the Biologic Institute. In recent years, human origins has become an especially hot topic as some scientists claim that the human race is a product of undirected natural selection and cannot be traced back to two parents. Dr. Gauger disagrees. Tune in to hear Dr. Gauger discuss the evidence against human-ape common ancestry, drawing from her research in such fields as anatomy and population genetics.

Metamorphosis Video Exclusive: Dr. Ann Gauger Discusses Limits of Natural Selection

In this special video edition of ID The Future, Dr. Ann Gauger, senior research scientist at Biologic Institute, discusses why natural selection is unable to account for the many changes that occur during butterfly metamorphosis. According to recent research, as many as six or more steps are required to change the function of just one protein. How does this relate to the numerous physical, hormonal, and cellular changes required to turn a larva into a butterfly? What would coordinate all these changes to ensure a successful transformation?

Testing Evolution in the Lab With Biologic Institute’s Ann Gauger

On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Director of Research Jay Richards interviews Ann Gauger, senior research scientist at Biologic Institute, on a new article she and Dr. Ralph Seelke have in the peer-reviewed journal BIO-Complexity. Working with her co-authors, Dr. Gauger experimentally tested two-step adaptive paths that should have been within easy reach for bacterial populations. Listen in and learn what Dr. Gauger was surprised to find as she discusses the implications of these experiments for Darwinian evolution.
