Remarkable Coincidences in Photosynthesis

Michael Denton

On a new episode of ID the Future, we listen in on a few minutes from a lecture given by Center for Science & Culture Senior Fellow Michael Denton. We’ve all heard of the importance of photosynthesis as an oxygen-creating process. In this segment, Denton explains the “remarkable set of coincidences” that makes the creation of oxygen through photosynthesis possible. Listen to the podcast here.

From the specific energy of visible light to the unique properties of water, this degree of improbability screams DESIGN. For more from Denton, this time focusing on H2O itself, take a look at his new book, The Wonder of Water.
