A Great, Short Video on the Supposed Whale Evolutionary Sequence

Some time ago, we did a Tomorrow’s World telecast on the problems with whale evolution. Why focus on whales? Because the supposed evolutionary sequence of whales is touted as one of the clearest and most supported by evidence. (Horses and, of course, humans are similarly touted. Pretty predictable touting. Or toutage, perhaps. Not really sure.) Yet, when you look at it closely, it falls short, which should cause one to wonder: If one of the best examples of evolution is actually a terrible example, then what sort of faith does such a theory deserve?

We bring it up because we just stumbled on a great “Long Story Short” video from the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture that makes most of the same points as we did in the telecast, just quicker and (to be honest) cuter. We’ve featured their videos before (like this one), and they are very well-made (and well-documented). Check out—it’s short! You’ll find it below, and then, below that, our own telecast on the same subject.

…and here’s our program, “Evolution: A Whale of a Tale,” making many of the same points.

Video: Molecular Motors Are Obviously Designed

This is a very short video, but the author has aggregated several great clips of molecular motor design in living cells. All I ask is that you look at it with your “commonsense hat” on: Do these look designed or not? Listen to the descriptions in the video: clutches, switches, etc. In a normal world, our basic, instinctive response to this information would be to assume that these motors have been intelligently crafted. Evolutionists seek to train you to ignore that instinct, and their words can sound convincing—after all, our untutored, “commonsense” conclusions about some phenomena are truly incorrect. Yet even some atheists recognize that the evidence behind the theory of evolution has not yet earned the credibility to ask you to ignore your intuitive conclusion that this is designed. Take a look for yourself:

Living Ed Video! Looking Back on 2022–2023

I just saw this was online and realized many of you may have never seen it. So, as the Living Ed school year begins anew here in Charlotte this week, we thought it would be good to highlight this video featuring last year’s class—that is, the class of 2023—and illustrating a little about life at LE! This year’s group, the class of 2024, is the largest yet at 22. Looking forward to what the next nine months has in store for them.

“Unpardonable Sin” Whiteboard video mentioned in Podcast 62

We thought this was so nicely done that it seemed worth posting on its own page. Podcast 62 was about the “Unpardonable Sin” and we linked to this video there on that page. But here it is, embedded, if you’d like to watch it. We think the whiteboard crew did a great job with this one—a video viewed on YouTube more than 1.3 million times. Have a look! (Then listen to the podcast! And read Mr. Ames’ article!)

Mentioned in the Podcast: “What Is the Greatest Love?”

In this week’s podcast, we mentioned a telecast by Mr. Gerald Weston titled “What Is the Greatest Love?” Here it is!

Video: A Lesson from John Williams about Discernment (and the Devil)

A change of pace this week, since my podcast partner, Mr. Robinson, is out of town. It’s a bit nerdy (specifically of the “soundtrack nerd” variety of nerdy), but there has long been a subtle cue in the movie music of John Williams that I have appreciated. Not only has it helped me to admire him as a composer, it has provided for me an illustration of the need for spiritual discernment. If you will forgive my lack of technical prowess (I just play the music right out of my speaker instead of editing it into the video), I hope this discussion helps get that idea across. If it isn’t terrible (and be honest with me, I can take it…), I’ll try to follow up in the future with a Michael Giacchino-themed lesson that goes hand in hand with this one.

Some videos from those handsome Canadians

We mentioned in the last post that we would put up a telecast by Mr. Michael Heykoop and a Viewpoint by Mr. Javid Khan. So, here they are! Actually, Mr. Khan works on graphics for many of the Viewpoints, if not all of them. But he does the presentation on this one. Give them both a watch!
