In his ORIGIN OF SPECIES, Charles Darwin stated, "If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous successive slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down."
Using examples of bacterial motors, cilia, vision, cellular transport, and more, Dr. Michael Behe, Professor of Biochemistry, Lehigh University, makes a persuasive case that the neo-Darwinian theory of evolution is beyond repair. In this thought-provoking lecture at Princeton University in 1997, Professor Behe addresses a number of vital questions related to the origin of biological systems:
* How does the existence of irreducibly complex biomechanical systesm falsify neo-Darwinian theory?
* Are there more plausible explanations for the complexity of life?
* Are we ultimately the result of undirected materialistic processes or the result of intelligent design?
* Are there other areas of science that point to an intelligent design?
Incorporating computer animations of numerous bilogical systems, this presentation brings Michael Behe's book DARWIN'S BLACK BOX to life.
