Video: Intelligent Design and the Fall of Darwinism by Jonathan McLatchie

In this presentation, apologist Jonathan McLatchie speaks on misconceptions about intelligent design (ID), answering objections to ID and how to deal with some of the common stereotypes that relate to ID.  This video is part 1 of 3 parts.  You can find part 2 here and part 3 here.

In Part 3, McLatchie answers questions from the audience.  Topics discussed include:
  • Darwinism vs. Neo-Darwinism
  • How are evolutionists currently challenging Intelligent Design?
  • Is Richard Dawkins a Darwinian or Neo-Darwinian?
  • What is the difference between micro and macro evolution?  (For the record, McLatchie doesn't like this distinction)
