The Fitness of Nature for Mankind featuring Biologist Michael Denton
Watch this presentation at- https://youtu.be/9SL_xqSvWqU
Renowned author and biologist Michael Denton gives a new expression to what he calls the “medieval synthesis” of knowledge about life, now enjoying a “Reconquista” thanks to modern science. In charming and lyrical yet rigorous fashion, Denton reviews the intelligent design evidence detailed in his books, including the most recent, The Miracle of the Cell. Join him as he explores the myriad of ways nature is fit not just for life, but for human life. Denton is author of the new book "The Miracle of the Cell" (2020) as well as many other books such as "Nature's Destiny," "Fire-Maker," "The Wonder of Water," and "Evolution: Still a Theory in Crisis." You will never think of nature in the same way after you watch this presentation! Dr. Denton's new book The Miracle of the Cell [https://www.discovery.org/store/produ...] provides compelling evidence that long before life emerged on our planet, the design of the carbon-based cell was foreshadowed in the order of nature, in the exquisite fitness of the laws of nature for this foundational unit of all life on Earth. Nowhere is this fitness more apparent than in the properties of the key atomic constituents of the cell. Each of the atoms of life — including carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen, as well as several metal elements — features a suite of unique properties fine-tuned to serve highly specific, indispensable roles in the cell. Moreover, some of these properties are specifically fit for essential roles in the cells of advanced aerobic organisms like ourselves. Author Michael Denton is a Senior Fellow with Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture. He holds an MD from Bristol University and a PhD in biochemistry from King’s College in London. His previous books include Evolution: A Theory in Crisis and Nature’s Destiny: How the Laws of Biology Reveal Purpose in the Universe. He has published his work in Nature, Nature Genetics, BioSystems, Human Genetics, and Biology and Philosophy.

Help CSI Stamp Out Slavery In Sudan
Join us in our effort to free over 350 slaves. Listeners to the Eric Metaxas Show will remember our annual effort to free Christians who have been enslaved for simply acknowledging Jesus Christ as their Savior. As we celebrate the birth of Christ this Christmas, join us in giving new life to brothers and sisters in Sudan who have enslaved as a result of their faith.
Typical Aid for the Enslaved
- A ration of sorghum, a local nutrient-rich staple food
- A dairy goat
- A “Sack of Hope,” a survival kit containing essential items such as tarp for shelter, a cooking pan, a water canister, a mosquito net, a blanket, a handheld sickle, and fishing hooks.
- Release celebrations include prayer and gathering for a meal, and medical care for those in need. The CSI team provides comfort, encouragement, and a shoulder to lean on while they tell their stories and begin their new lives.
Thank you for your compassion Giving the Gift of Freedom and Hope to the Enslaved South Sudanese
