FLIGHT: The Genius of Birds (Part 3) - Embryonic Development

Is the development process of bird embryo a highly engineered biological process, or simply a chaotic collision or molecular components?

In this sequence from Illustra Media's newest documentary FLIGHT: THE GENIUS OF BIRDS you will enter a fertilized egg to witness a bird's embryonic development. Spectacular animation and live action footage document the extraordinary 21-day process of organization and growth from a few cells into a chicken.

FLIGHT: The Genius of Birds (Pt.2) - Flight Muscle Engineering

A network of hundreds of muscles, ligaments, and tendons are required for flight. In this sequence from FLIGHT: THE GENIUS OF BIRDS the structure and design of a snow goose's primary flight muscles (the engines that elevate and drive it through the air) are demonstrated in stunning detail.

[NEW SERIES!!] "FLIGHT: The Genius of Birds" - Part 1

FLIGHT: THE GENIUS OF BIRDS is the first episode in Illustra Media's new series THE DESIGN OF LIFE.

This remarkable documentary explores the evidence for intelligent design as revealed through the biological systems and mechanisms that make avian flight possible.

Photographed in North America, England, Peru, Greenland, and Antarctica FLIGHT celebrates birds and the miracle of life in the skies.

Where Does the Evidence for Intelligent Design Lead Us?

"Follow the evidence wherever it leads" is what science and genuine seekers of Truth should be all about.  As Sherlock Holmes often stated in his fictional adventures:

"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains (no matter how unlikely), must be the truth."

We have seen that this is indeed the case for the scientific theory of Intelligent Design.  After examining the evidences of Astronomy, Physics, Biological Machines, and the Genetic Code of information of DNA....what are the implications of our search?

Watch and find out....

"The Negative Scientific Evidence against Evolution" pt.2

THE CASE FOR A CREATOR is a remarkable film about Lee Strobel's journey from spiritual skepticism to a profound faith in the God who has etched his indelible signature upon every galaxy and living cell.

In this second part of the examination of the "Negative Scientific Evidence Against Evolution" Strobel examines primarily the CAMBRIAN EXPLOSION, and the insurmountable burden it presents to the theory of Darwinian Evolution.  In the Cambrian Explosion, we find a vast increase in the FORMS and also in the INFORMATION of animal types in the fossil record.  

What is the best and most scientific explanation for this dramatic increase in Form and Information.... a Designer or "Random Mutations" acting upon Natural Selection?

Watch and decide for yourself...


"The Negative Scientific Evidence against Evolution" pt.1

THE CASE FOR A CREATOR is a remarkable film about Lee Strobel's journey from spiritual skepticism to a profound faith in the God who has etched his indelible signature upon every galaxy and living cell. The film examines scientific evidence in the fields of molecular biology, astronomy, physics, cosmology, paleontology, and genetics to answer the questions: Does modern science confirm the theory that life and the universe are the products of blind, materialistic processes? Or, are there a purpose, plan, and transcendent design behind all that exists?

THE CASE FOR A CREATOR includes interviews with leading proponents of intelligent design theory including Stephen C. Meyer, Paul Nelson, Jonathan Wells, Jay Richards, Robin Collins, Michael Behe, Scott Minnich, and Guillermo Gonzalez. Together, they outline a comprehensive case for design.

Au. sediba: Another Human "Ancestor" Bites the Dust Bark


In our home we're currently trying to settle on a color of bark to lay down on a patch of sloping front yard that needs some sprucing up. For Australopithecus sediba, however, that same bark would make a tasty meal.

Just nine months ago in this space, Casey Luskin was predicting that a much-hyped human "ancestor," Au. sediba, wouldn't hold that title long and would instead soon enough be relegated to the side of the ledger that's filled with ape-like non-ancestors.

The trail of fallen ancestors brings us to the present day, September 2011, when the media has started a new cycle of hype with Australopithecus sediba. If history is a guide, within months or a few years we should expect to see cooler heads prevail in their analyses of this fossil.

Sure enough, the cooling trend is now plainly in evidence, with Nature reporting that the creatures had a very notable characteristic in common with chimps, not humans, that had not previously been recognized: their diet, highlighted by tree bark and wood. This was found thanks to an analysis of tooth enamel and dental tartar and microwear. The NY Times lets its readers down softly:
