Does Evolution Have Practical Benefits for Science?: 'ID The Future' Webcast

The latest 'Intelligent Design The Future' Webcast:

"On this episode of the ID The Future podcast Casey Luskin looks at what evolution has given us. Recently some mainstream scientists have been discussing what practical benefits Darwinian evolution holds for society? Surprisingly, they see little practical applications for Darwinian evolution, going so far as to admit that "evolution hasn't yielded many practical or commercial benefits." Last year, National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) member Phillip Skell made the observation last year that Darwinism is not the foundation of all biological research, and indeed exerts little influence in much of the research being done today."

Phillip Skell's article "Why Do We Invoke Darwin? Evolutionary theory contributes little to experimental biology" can be found here.
