Shattering Darwinism

Richard Milton is a British journalist who is an engineer by training. In 1994, Milton published his controversial book, “The Facts of Life: Shattering the Myths of Darwinism.” Milton is not a creationist. He is also clearly not a Darwinist. His controversial work is, however, refreshing as it speaks from neither side of the divide. He truly approaches the topic from the most objective view we have yet observed. Milton’s book contends that over the past few decades, certain scientific discoveries have been made which greatly undermine Darwinist views including: that chance is the mechanism of The Earth's antiquity, the ability of species to change by selection, their inability to inherit acquired features, the existence of a "missing link" between man and ape, etc. All of these are essential tenets of the Darwinist canon and all have been thrown into grave doubt. He attaches no blame to Darwin, but asks the question, “How can Darwinists continue to get it so wrong?”

Instead of summarizing his work in a blog post, I humbly submit this 30 minute video summary of Milton summarizing it himself in an interview. Be warned that the video is dry, scientific and void of pictures or text. However, if you listen objectively, I promise you will be enlightened. And, if you are a Christian, you will be encouraged.
