Listen: Evolutionary Biologist Richard Sternberg on the Problem of Whale Origins

Evolution News


On an episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Richard Sternberg, evolutionary biologist and CSC Senior Fellow, whose discussion of whale origins is featured in Illustra Media’s new documentary, Living Waters: Intelligent Design in the Oceans of the Earth.


Sternberg critiques conventional accounts of whale evolution, noting that the timespan available is too short for the extensive body-plan modifications required for the transition from a dog-like land mammal (Pakicetus) to a fully aquatic whale.
