Evolution in 10 minutes

Gacked from the Bad Astronomer’s blog.

Oftentimes, you have to already have a degree in biology to refute the weird assertions people make about evolution. That speciation hasn’t been observed is one I always have a problem with because, ahem, I’m not a biologist and I don’t keep the details at the front of my brain. All I can say is, “Yes, speciation has been observed in nature and in experiment, but I’ll have to go look up where.” This is usually automatically poo-poohed because I didn’t know right then what the facts were. Alas.

But this is a great video. Very educational.

    I intended to watch the first minute of this and then fast-forward through the rest, but I watched the whole thing. A wonderful argument. Complete and thorough.

    Of course, the people who most vehemently deny evolution are the same ones that won’t accept this kind of proof.

    But at least this would force them to refute specific points, rather than the standard open ended conversation where they’re spouting random myths and you don’t know where to start.
