ID Inquiry: What About Antibiotic Resistance?

first_img Share Congratulations to Science Magazine for an Honest Portrayal of Darwin’s Descent of Man Email Print Google+ Linkedin Twitter Share Email Print Google+ Linkedin Twitter Share It’s a perennial challenge to ID proponents. As an Evolution News reader wrote in to ask: “How does intelligent design explain the fact that the development of resistance to antibiotics [in certain bacteria] appears to demonstrate conclusively that evolution is a fact?” How does ID explain the “fact” that evolution is a “fact”? Well, as I mentioned here the other day, ID is itself a theory of evolution, in competition with the alternative Darwinian theory. Or as biologist Ann Gauger told ID the Future host Rob Crowther in a classic episode, “It depends on what you mean by evolution.” Download the podcast or listen to it here.“ID Inquiry” is an occasional feature at ID the Future.
