Dr. Richard Sternberg: Whale Evolution and Living Waters, Pt. 2
Summary: Today’s episode of ID the Future from the vault continues a discussion of why the idea of land-to-sea whale evolution doesn’t wash. CSC Senior Fellow and evolutionary biologist Richard Sternberg’s focuses on material from the documentary Living Waters: Intelligent Design in the Oceans of the Earth, and explains why neither natural selection nor neutral drift cannot explain the transition from a land mammal to a fully aquatic whale. Standard evolutionary models would either require implausibly large breeding populations (greater than that of any mammal species) or a waiting period far longer than the given 8-9 million years.
