I love this very interesting, honest, and fair presentation on the origins of life. These are the sorts of things that needs to be presented in the public schools to encourage thoughts instead of the current curriculum.
To consider any of these people dumb or misinformed would be intellectual suicide on your part. I really enjoyed Dr. Dean Kenyon's very intellectually honest testimony on his "Biochemical Predestination" hypothesis that was peer reviewed and accepted widely by the scientific community only to be rejected by Dr. Kenyon himself. Now, I fully understand later he tried to downplay Creationism to make it more palatable by calling it ID, which backfired in court. Moving on.
Proteins self assembling sounds wonderful to someone with atheistic presuppositions. But, to risk self preservation and to admit to his "intellectual breaking point" on his own theory was admirable.
Evolutionary theory artificially rules out a kind of cause before it has a chance to speak by the evidence. The cause of intelligence. This is why they pigeon hole themselves and scientists often wear, with pride, the title of metaphysical naturalism. Does anyone now see the dangers of scientists taking philosophical positions such as this?
