Clear, concise description of Evolution
Reviewer jeffgoin
 October 04, 2011
I listened to this entire series and it firmed up what might be the greatest change in my life. And it was a dramatic change for the better.

I was already having doubts about my born-again christian view but still held to a young-earth belief that scoffed at evolution. Then a friend challenged me and gave me this podcast. At first I was reluctant to even play it but finally gave in. It was a "wow" moment.

Turns out, the evidence presented here so clearly, reveals why essentially all biologists consider evolution their core theory. The main exceptions are those who are already religious. Nobody comes to this evidence and says "oh, this is a sign of intelligent design."

There are multiple lines of evidence from biology alone and this is what's covered here in lay person's lingo but with enough detail to be fascinating.

Listen with an open mind to see where the evidence leads.

Enjoy!

Excellent Podcast

I grew up in a very "Cristian" family. My grandfather is a Southern Baptist Preacher, and likewise all of my extended family on both sides (mother & father) are VERY "Christian". Thus, science is something that was not only not taught to my siblings and myself, I was actually taught that it was anti-Christian.

Now, as an adult, after hundreds of hours of research, learning, and great podcasts like this one, I find myself craving to learn more. Our planet and history are amazing and full of wonder. Thank you Zachary, I will recommend your podcast to everyone! Great job!

Stem Cell Biology 101 - Video Podcast

Author: Zachary Moore, Ph.D.zach@drzach.net (Zachary Moore)

Although this doesn't regard evolution, it's another hot scientific topic that I was asked to talk about to the First Baptist Church of Colleyville Faith and Reason class. I thought that the Evolution 101 listeners might be interested in it- a further ethical discussion will be posted later to the Apologia podcast feed.
