Darwin’s Dilemma: A New Intelligent Design DVD Documentary on the Cambridge Explosion is Set for Release (September 2009)

Illustra Media is the outfit that produced the two Intelligent Design DVDs: Unlocking the Mystery of Life  and The Privileged Planet. As an agnostic who is open minded with regards to Intelligent Design arguments, I found both of these documentaries stimulating. And now, as a kind of completion of a trilogy, Illustra Media is about to release its documentary on the Cambrian Explosion titled Darwin’s Dilemma. Here’s the trailer:

The trailer is a bit on the melodramatic side, but the subject is inherently interesting, and perhaps the film itself will be good.

    You’re an agnostic who is full of shit. Intelligent design = supernatural magic. If you’re open minded about magic, then you’re a god-soaked moron.

      Only two options available to explain Origin of Life:
      1. Universe is Eternal (very old, infinite)
      or
      2. It was Created….either naturally (evolution) or
      supernaturally (Creator).

      Option 1
      2nd Law of Thermodynamics: The older a system is, the more chaos, disorder will be found. Fact: The universe is finely tuned and ordered. No chaos. Thus, Option 1 is eliminated. The universe was Created.

      Option 2: Natural Creation (cosmic-Darwin evolution)
      1st Law of Thermodynamics: Energy and Matter can not create itself. There must be a 1st cause.
      Further, nothing comes from nothing. Something, especially life, can not come from nothing. Thus, Option 2, natural creation, is not possible. Note: For Darwin’s Theory on Evolution (Macro) to be true, there must be 1000’s of transitional forms in the Fossil Record. There are many micro-evolutionary findings (transitions within a specie). There are NO MACROEVOLUTIONARY fossils…none, nada, nil. Scientists need to stop pushing microevolutionary findings as Macro….Textbooks are wrong.

      This leaves Option 2: Supernatural Creation…with purpose and design. This cannot be proven by Science b/c it is outside the realm of Science. Yet,
      the complexity of DNA codes, the complexity of a the cell…demonstrate intelligence in design.

      Do your homework with an open mind and see where the true evidence leads.

        Option 1 2nd Law of Thermodynamics: blablabla…The universe is finely tuned …blablabla

        First, 2nd law is unapplicable here, you’re bullshiting, and NO the Universe is not fine tuned, more bullshit.

        Option 2: ..1st Law of Thermodynamics: ..blablabla…

        Total Energy of the Universe is…guess what= 0 (zero!)
        So a natural begining don’t violates nothing.

        Further, nothing comes from nothing.

        Define “nothing”. In Quantum level “something” can and do come from “nothing”.

        especially life, can not come from nothing

        Life is not magic, it’s not a vital force or something. Life is just complex chemistry, we know complex chemistry come from simple chemistry, and simple chemistry come from stars life cycle.
        Evidence for Darwin’s ToE is overwhelming, and goes by far beyond the fossil record. We could have no fossils at all and still be left with an astonishingly overwhelming amount of evidence for ToE. But we are lucky having more than enough evidence in the fossil record showing major transitions. You don’t know what you are talking about.
        Suprenatural creation cannot be proved or disproved by anything as it is compatible with any observation one does. It’s unfalsifiable. The same about inteligent design. Without a definition of “intelligence”, and “design”, one can claim anything as intelligently designed. BTW, if the whole Universe was designed, then everything is a product of intelligent design, even rocks, so there is no “no design”, so “design” is undiscernible from “no design”. One cannot tell what is designed and what is not, as by definition undesigned is non-existent. But then nobody can claim ‘design’, as oposed or diferent of undesign.
        Do your homework with an open mind and see where the true evidence leads.
