Is intelligent design undeniable? Can evolution explain the origin and complexity of life? How do we make the case for design? Is there such thing as common sense science? Are humans just cosmic accidents? Where did Charles Darwin go wrong? What is Neo-Darwinism? In this podcast Jonathan Morrow will explore these questions and more with author and researcher Dr. Douglas Axe.

Dr. Douglas Axe explains one of the ways design intuition has really triumphed over Darwin’s evolutionary story, “These extraordinary improbabilities of the coincidence you would need for accidental processes to do something that looks brilliant. Accidental causes are not brilliant they are stupid. So, for a stupid process to do something that makes it look like a genius is a coincidence and it’s an extreme coincidence.”

Dr. Douglas Axe, author of the book Undeniable, is the director of Biologic Institute. His research uses both experiments and computer simulations to examine the functional and structural constraints on the evolution of proteins and protein systems. After a Caltech PhD he held postdoctoral and research scientist positions at the University of Cambridge, the Cambridge Medical Research Council Centre, and the Babraham Institute in Cambridge. His work and ideas have been featured in many scientific journals, including the Journal of Molecular Biology, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and Nature, and in such books as Signature in the Cell and Darwin’s Doubt by Stephen Meyer and Life’s Solution by Simon Conway Morris.
