Günter Bechly: Species Pairs Wreck Darwinism
Bechly and host Casey Luskin discuss cattle and bison, horses and donkeys, the Asian black bear and the South American spectacled bear, and more.
Fact Check: Hawaiian Silverswords Fail the Species Pair Challenge
Even though the differences appear superficially striking, they do not involve any novel body plans (i.e., no new proteins, new tissues, or new organs).
Engineers Crash the Evolution Party, Rethink Biological Variation
Miller and Luskin discuss fruit flies, finch beaks, stickleback fish, mutational hotspots, phenotypic plasticity, and the gravity well model.
Studies on Stickleback Fish Further Validate Engineering Models for Adaptation
Cichlid and stickleback fish are two of the most iconic examples of adaption that biologists present as evidence for the plausibility of evolutionary processes.
Studies on Cichlid Fish Demonstrate the Predictive Power of Engineering Models for Adaptation
Cichlid variation do not primarily originate from random mutations but from engineered systems.
