Video: Intelligent Design vs Theory of Evolution
What or who created all of the billions of species that have lived on Earth? Is all life the product of evolution as Charles Darwin proposed or was it the guiding hand of a higher power? Believers in an idea known as Intelligent Design argue that complex life could not have evolved gradually over time. Evolutionists disagree – but the only clues they have to prove evolution happened are dead fossils that leave huge gaps in biological history. One scientist is trying to fill in those gaps by bringing extinct creatures back to life as robots.
Perhaps the puzzle of creation cannot be solved by looking at biology alone. One engineer is studying a single pattern that appears throughout the entire universe – from a lightning bolt, to the veins of a leaf, to the veins inside our bodies. Could this pattern be the mark of a designer? Or are there other signs that a higher power is responsible for life – from geometric laws to ethical laws? One leading cosmologist believes there are rules that precede the birth of our universe and control everything we do, from how the subatomic particles that make up our body interact, to how humans treat one other. Is human morality a sign that life was designed by a moral God? Or did our brains evolve to be that way so we could survive together as a species? Was life created by evolution? By God? Or both?
