Impeachment of Irreducible Complexity

Does intelligent design deserve a seat at the scientific round table?
A biologist, philosopher and attorney debate.
"Dr. Kenneth Miller uses Dr. Beatty's very own example of a mouse trap to prove why he thinks the central idea of intelligent design, irreducible complexity, is wrong.

Kurt Olson interviews Dr. Barbara Forrest, David K. DeWolf and Dr. Kenneth R. Miller in this episode of Massachusetts Educational Forum:Educational Forum: Evolution and Intelligent Design: The Science, The Debate and the Legal Landscape.

The full interview is available at The Massachusetts School of Law also presents information on important current affairs to the general public in television and radio broadcasts, an intellectual journal, conferences, author appearances, blogs and books. For more information visit"

"The two essential parts of evolution are really straight forward: ...
(1) That there exists variation in nature among individuals in a species ...
(2) The second is the observation that among that variation there is differential reproductive success. ...
