Where Does The Evidence Lead. Documentary on Intelligent Design.
A look at molecular machines and the complexity of the cell. "If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down." Charles Darwin, "On the Origin of Species", ch.6 "Organs of Extreme Perfection"
Where Does the Evidence Lead was created for classroom, group, and individual study. It is based upon the content of Unlocking the Mystery of Life and examines both Darwinian evolution and the scientific case for intelligent design.
Six modules (eight to fourteen minutes in duration) each present a specific facet of the debate over the theories of materialistic evolution and design. They feature leading ID scientists and scholars including Stephen C. Meyer, Paul Nelson, Jed Macosko, Michael Behe, Scott Minnich, Dean Kenyon, William Dembski, and Jonathan Wells.
Since its release in 2003, Where Does the Evidence Lead has been successfully utilized in classrooms and home study in the United States and the United Kingdom. In 2004, Texans for Better Science Education sent thousands of free copies of the DVD to public high schools throughout the state. A year later, Truth in Science implemented a similar distribution program to secondary schools in England.
Each module of Where Does the Evidence Lead is a stand-alone presentation. Collectively, they present a comprehensive case for intelligent design based upon evidence from molecular biology and genetics. While most of the material in has been adapted from Unlocking the Mystery of Life, there is new content and footage contained in each module.
Part 1 LIFE: THE BIG QUESTIONS A new challenge to the theory of natural selection.
Part 2 WHAT DARWIN DIDN'T KNOW Exploring the complexity of the living cell.
Part 3 MOLECULES & MOUSETRAPS Molecular machines that defy Darwin’s theory.
Part 4 HOW DID LIFE BEGIN? Why chance cannot explain the origin of life.
Part 5 THE LANGUAGE OF LIFE DNA genetic information, and life on Earth.
Part 6 THE DESIGN INFERENCE The scientific evidence for intelligent design.
