    Fact vs. Theory vs. Hypothesis vs. Law… EXPLAINED!

    [MUSIC] We need to get something straight. Evolution by natural selection is a theory. So is climate change. But people keep saying that like it’s a bad thing… [MUSIC] I get it, I understand your frustration. We’re all searching for ultimate hashtag #truth, and complex, challenging ideas don’t always fit nice and neatly in our brains. But what is truth? Are there different levels of truth? Are some truths truthier than others? I don’t know. But I do know this: Science is the absolute best tool we have for understanding how the universe works, and theory is not a 4-letter word. If we’re going to trust science together, the least…

    Stephen C. Meyer: Theistic Evolution

    [bright gentle music]>>Oh, well, welcome, glad to see so many faces out there this evening, and of course the topic this evening is Did God Need Darwin? And you don’t have to read too long in The Origin of Species to realize that Darwin did not need God but many Christians today wrestle with this relationship. Just how should evolutionary theory and the biblical narrative relate to each other? The answers to this question vary widely even among Christians, from those who totally accept a fully naturalistic evolutionary model and dismiss the bible’s input on origins questions to those who do the opposite, who fully accept a literal biblical narrative…

    Why Is Blue So Rare In Nature?

    [PBS Bumper] [OPEN] There are no blue tigers. No blue bats, no blue squirrels, or blue dogs. Even blue whales aren’t that blue. Animals come in pretty much every color, but blue seems to be the rarest. What’s cool, though, is when we do find a blue animal, they’re awesome looking. Nature doesn’t do halfway with blue. To understand why this is, we’re gonna journey through evolution, chemistry, and some very cool physics. But, first we’re gonna need to understand why animals are any color at all, and to do that, we need to go look at some butterflies… because butterflies are awesome… and if you don’t think so, you’re…

    Why Don’t Humans Have a Penis Bone?

    There are 206 bones in the human body, and yes, it’s the same for men and women. No, women don’t have fewer ribs than men, and men don’t have one extra bone, if you know what I mean. You know what I mean. But several mammals, including our close relatives like chimpanzees, do have that extra bone, so today let’s talk about why other animals have penis bones while humans got the shaft. It wasn’t always this way. Researchers who traced its evolutionary timeline found the penis bone, also known by its scientific and less fun name the baculum, first evolved around 145 million years ago after placental and non-placental…
