Cladistics Made Easy: Why an Arcane Field of Study Fails to Upset Steve Meyer’s Argument for Intelligent Design

Enjoy this remarkably clear and amusing conversation with Stephen Meyer about, first of all, what cladistics is and second, why this method of classification analysis in biology leaves the argument in Darwin’s Doubt unscathed. That’s despite claims to the contrary in Nick Matzke’s review of the book that many Darwinists initially cited as the definitive response to Meyer.
