NOVA: Intelligent Design on Trial

Biologists discuss the assertion by creationists that some organs are "irreducibly complex." Such an organ would serve no purpose and give no competitive advantage to the organism unless it was fully formed, and therefore could not be the product of gradual development through evolution by natural selection. A segment from NOVA's documentary on Kitzmiller, et. al. v. Dover Area School District.

In that case, the Court held that the District had attempted to require the teaching of creationism in its schools, in violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

From: NOVA's "Judgment Day - Intelligent Design on Trial"

In true Monty Python style, Buck accomplished the ridiculous task without a smidgen of shame or regret. Watch the full five-part series.

Viral for sugar water.
