Another Evolutionary Icon: The Long-Necked Giraffe, Pt. 2

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig shares more about why the body plan of the long-neck giraffe could not have evolved in a step-by-step Darwinian fashion. He gives an account of the rational design of the giraffe’s recurrent laryngeal nerve, a feature that Richard Dawkins and other evolutionists claim can only be explained by Darwinian evolution.

Another Evolutionary Icon: The Long-Necked Giraffe, Pt. 1

On this episode of ID the Future from the vault, geneticist Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig talks about his book The Evolution of the Long-Necked Giraffe. For years, Darwinists have presented the giraffe as a textbook example of adaptive morphological change in response to environmental conditions. Tune in as Dr. Lönnig discusses the problems with the idea that millions of years of mutations could create the many differences between a short-necked and a long-necked giraffe.

Mendel vs. Darwin, Pt. 3

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig, an expert in plant breeding and formerly affiliated with the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Germany, further explores that clash of views modern evolutionists often paper over — Darwinism vs. Mendel. Lönnig discusses how Darwinian evolutionary biology held back acceptance of the laws of inheritance, discovered by Gregor Mendel, abbot at the Augustinian Abbey of St. Thomas, Brunn.

Mendel vs. Darwin, pt. 2

On this episode of ID the Future, geneticist Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig digs further into Gregor Mendel’s laws of inheritance and how they opposed the thinking of Darwin. Lönnig explains how Darwinian evolution hindered the acceptance of Mendel’s genetic laws, and how the laws still came to be accepted.
