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.

The Evidence of Micro-Biological Machines

Is there any empirical evidence that living systems were designed or engineered?  If genuine design in living systems points to a designer, can we uncover any such design within living organisms?

MICRO-BIOLOGICAL MACHINES answer this question with a resounding "Yes!".  In this short clip, from Lee Strobel's "CASE FOR A CREATOR",  you will discover that micro-biological machines, such as proteins and the bacterial flagellum motor, betray an incredible amount of information and genetic design. 

Understanding Intelligent Design Theory - Sean McDowell, Biola University

What is exactly is meant by "Intelligent Design"? Do certain features of reality allow us to reasonably infer that they are the product of a Mind, an Intelligence, or a Designer?

Listen to Sean McDowell, who teaches at Biola University, give a concise but interesting presentation of this scientific theory and "inference to the best explanation" called Intelligent Design Theory.

More Irreducible Complexity Is Found in Flagellar Assembly

 

If a structure is irreducibly complex, the assembly instructions are often even more irreducibly complex. Case in point: the bacterial flagellum.

When mainstream science journals corroborate claims we've made in support of the theory of intelligent design, we like to point it out. It shows that the case for ID grows stronger, not weaker, with time. Eleven years ago in the Illustra film Unlocking the Mystery of Life, Scott Minnich said that the assembly instructions for building a flagellum are even more irreducibly complex than the outboard-motor-like structure itself. He was right; a new paper in PNAS, with dazzling illustrations, opens Darwin's black box a little more, showing the amazing sequential assembly of this icon of ID.

The 12 authors from 5 American universities don't seem to have much use for evolutionary theory. They never mention it. Instead, they call the flagellum a "sophisticated self-assembling molecular machine" and, twice, "an intricate molecular machine."
