The evolution of the human eye – Joshua Harvey

The evolution of the human eye – Joshua Harvey

The human eye is an amazing mechanism, able to detect anywhere from a few photons to direct sunlight, or switch focus from the screen in front of you to the distant horizon in a third of a second. In fact, the structures required for such incredible flexibility were once considered so complex that Charles Darwin …


Why Are There Still Monkeys? – 12 Days of Evolution #10

Why Are There Still Monkeys? – 12 Days of Evolution #10

[MUSIC] [BIRD CHIRP] If humans evolved from monkeys, then why are there still monkeys? There’s many things wrong with this question, like the fact we’re more closely related to apes than monkeys. Okay, so why are there still apes? Asking why there are still apes is like saying, if some Americans and Australians came from …

Can Evolution Make an Eye? – 12 Days of Evolution #4

[MUSIC] [BIRD CHIRP] Your eyes are beautiful. They’re amazing bits of biological engineering. Just like a camera, remove one of their intricate parts, and the eye can’t do its job. For this reason, many people think eyes couldn’t possibly arise from a blind process like natural selection. But that idea doesn’t hold vitreous fluid. Light-sensitive …


How The Human Eye Evolved To Be So Complex

Eyes are really weird when you think about them. They’re like little gel filled sacks sticking out of our faces. They take all these wavelengths of light and somehow make pictures out of them. But how did they evolve to be like that? Hey seers Julia here for DNews Eyes are extraordinarily complex. And the …


Has Human Evolution Stopped ?

Has Human Evolution Stopped ?

Curious Droid presents for ways that human evolution could proceed it’s been a hundred and fifty seven years since Charles Darwin published his groundbreaking book the “Origin of Species” in which he proposed the theory of evolution back in 1859. Since then our knowledge of the world and ourselves increased exponentially but what lies ahead …


Could the Cambrian animals have come into existence as a result of natural selection or mutation?

Could the Cambrian animals have come into existence as a result of natural selection or mutation?

Ankerberg: Richard Dawkins and other evolutionary biologists are still confidently proclaiming that it’s possible to build a Cambrian animal by natural selection and random mutation in small incremental steps. But what are some of the problems that you see with this evolutionary view? Dr. Stephen Meyer: Well, actually many of the leading Cambrian paleontologists are …


50 Years of Scientific Challenges to Evolution: Remembering The Wistar Symposium

50 Years of Scientific Challenges to Evolution: Remembering The Wistar Symposium

(bouncy music) – 50 years ago today there was a remarkable meeting held at the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia that’s had a tremendous influence on thinking over the past 50 years about the nature of the evolutionary process. Briefly what happened was a group of physicists and engineers took an interest in biology, and they …


Wallace, Darwin’s Forgotten Frenemy

Wallace, Darwin’s Forgotten Frenemy

This episode is brought to you by Squarespace. Everyone knows the name Charles Darwin. He was the father of evolution, the first to come up with that whole natural selection, survival-of-the-fittest thing. Right? Actually, Darwin doesn’t deserve all the credit. While Darwin was puzzling over the beaks of Galapagos finches, another naturalist working in what’s …


Charles Darwin’s Idea: Descent With Modification

Charles Darwin’s Idea: Descent With Modification

Professor Dave here, let’s talk about Darwin. For millennia, humans have wondered just how we got here. Throughout most of human history, any answer to this question was the exclusive domain of religion, but when modern science came about, it wasn’t bashful in having a go at this question, too. Remarkably, science came to answer …
