Casey Luskin explains his choice of this vid:
Back in June I published a critique of a video posted on the popular YouTube science channel Veritasium that had overstated the evolutionary findings of the Long Term Evolution Experiment. But I don’t like being negative, and so I’m very happy to be able to report on a wonderful video from Veritasium on molecular machines.
It’s an older video, from 2017, but it’s so good that it’s worth highlighting here. The animation has a fantastic sequence explaining DNA replication, showing how the helicase separates the two DNA strands for replication, and how DNA is wrapped around histone complexes and bundled with chromatin so it can all be packed into the nucleus of your cell as chromosomes…
The video gives a nice visual window into the operation of molecular machines that are fundamental to cell replication. Of course Veritasium doesn’t frame it this way, but this complex system of carefully coordinated machines cannot help but testify powerfully to intelligent design.Casey Luskin, “Spectacular Video on Molecular Machines and Cell Replication” at Evolution News and Science Today (August 26, 2021)
Veristasium probably MUST front some Darwin nonsense to stay in good with the main people in charge of pointing others to their site. Focus on the real stuff, like the remarkably complex cell machinery and ask: Randomness?
