Revolutionary tells the story of biochemist Michael Behe and the revolution he helped spark twenty years ago with his path-breaking book Darwin’s Black Box, inspiring a new generation of scientists and thinkers who are challenging Darwinian orthodoxy and discovering powerful evidence throughout nature of intelligent design. Learn what led Behe to his discoveries, how those opposed to his ideas tried to kill them in court, how Behe’s ideas have been vindicated by science during the past decade, and how his ideas have led to a growing movement for a new approach to biology. Filmed in the United States and Europe, Revolutionary features new interviews with biologists Michael Behe, Douglas Axe, and Scott Minnich, and with philosophers of science Stephen Meyer and Paul Nelson, among others. After seeing the film, you will want to join the revolution!
In this provocative history of contemporary debates over evolution, veteran journalist Tom Bethell depicts Darwin’s theory as a nineteenth-century idea past its prime, propped up by logical fallacies, bogus claims, and empirical evidence that is all but disintegrating under an onslaught of new scientific discoveries. Bethell presents a concise yet wide-ranging tour of the flash points of modern evolutionary theory, investigating controversies over common descent, natural selection, the fossil record, biogeography, information theory, evolutionary psychology, artificial intelligence, and the growing intelligent design movement. Bethell’s account is enriched by his own personal encounters with of some of our era’s leading scientists and thinkers, including Harvard biologists Stephen Jay Gould and Richard Lewontin; British paleontologist Colin Patterson; and renowned philosopher of science Karl Popper.
