Stephen Meyer Gets Animated in New PragerU Video

Andrew McDiarmid

Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection has, with some modifications, been embraced as unassailable by the science community over the last century. So much so that evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins has famously stated that “If you meet somebody who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid or insane.” But is that right?

In a new PragerU video, Stephen Meyer answers the question by presenting two big reasons to doubt the evolutionary account of life’s origins — the Cambrian explosion and the DNA enigma. The animated video is a nice summary of Meyer’s book-length treatments of those two problems. And at under six minutes in length, the video makes a great conversation starter!

Watch it now, and be sure to share it with your friends and family. Also note that a study guide is available, as well as a transcript of Meyer’s commentary. You can even take a five-question quiz after watching it to make sure you were paying attention. Enjoy!
