On this ID the Future, distinguished German paleontologist Günter Bechly continues unpacking his new argument against modern evolutionary theory. According to Bechly, contemporary species pairs diverge hardly at all over millions of years, even when isolated from each other, and yet we’re supposed to believe that the evolutionary process built dramatically distinct body plans in similar time frames at various other times in the history of life. Why believe that? He suggests this pattern of relative stasis among species pairs strikes a significant and damaging blow to Darwinian theory. In this Part 2 episode, Bechly and host Casey Luskin discuss mice/rat pairs, cattle and bison, horses and donkeys, Asian and African elephants, the Asian black bear and the South American Read More ›
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin reports on interesting new genetic research which shows that our ancestral tree may not be quite what you think. This research, published in the science journal Nature over the past few months, shows a much greater genetic distance between humans and chimps than previously thought. Intriguingly, it also reveals a closer relationship between humans and Neanderthals. Listen in for the full story.
