On this episode of ID the Future, Andrew McDiarmid talks with distinguished Brazilian scientist Marcos Eberlin, author of the Nobel laureate-endorsed Foresight: How the Chemistry of Life Reveals Planning and Purpose, about--of all things--diarrhea, the body’s surprisingly helpful (and sophisticated) system for flushing out that bad stuff. The system requires (and happily has) a support system for preserving the good stuff. But it’s an all-or-nothing system requiring great selectivity and fine-tuning. Evolutionist Jerry Coyne says blind evolution could have done it all. But Eberlin says that a knowledge of the relevant chemistry and physiology strongly suggests otherwise.
