  4. Nested hierarchies of species are explained and discussed.
  5. Discussion on the various attempts to get Creationism taught in schools, “equal time”, and the court cases behind them.
  6. Is stumbling across a watch on the beach, picking it up, seeing the intricate parts, and therefore knowing it had a creator a good analogy where God creating us is concerned?
  7. Where does the flagellum stand where having a single function of an organism is shifted for the use of a different function?
  8. Blood clotting is not irreducibly complex and in fact is evident in different stages in this day and age.
  9. Fine tuning may be the next wave of arguments against evolution, however this is an argument that has already been refuted.




  1. Next week we will have Adele Sakler of www.existentialpunk.com and Peter Walker of www.wikiletics.com .
