Darwin’s Finches: The Hype Continues

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.

Dr. Jonathan Wells: Biology’s Quiet Revolution

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Jonathan Wells discusses a popular claim, which he describes as “DNA makes RNA makes protein makes us” — or, every organism contains a program for itself in its DNA. Though this view fits neatly with the perspective of Darwinian evolution, it has been shown to be incorrect at every step. Listen in as Dr. Wells explains.

Dr. Jonathan Wells: How Much of the Human Genome is Functional?

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Jonathan Wells about a recent article that claims that the human genome is full of useless, non-functional DNA. Dr. Wells explains the concept of “junk DNA,” and why there is such a stark disagreement between those who say our genome is at least 80% functional, and those who say it’s only 8.2% — and how we can know who to listen to.
