Video: “What a Wonderful World,” Indeed

David Klinghoffer

The science of intelligent design typically focuses on details, “steel-hard facts,” as Douglas Axe puts it. Sometimes, if carried to an extreme, that can be a fault. Now and again, therefore, it’s good to take a step back and ponder the biggest picture of life and its wonder, beauty, and charm.

In this from BBC One, David Attenborough offers the voiceover — a reading of the lyrics of Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World.” Perfect. All this from dumb natural forces and blind shuffling? Also nice to report that we came across on this over at Why Evolution Is True, where there would more typically be cause for clash than concord. Cheers, Dr. Coyne!
