METAMORPHOSIS
The Beauty and Power of Intelligent Design
Premieres Spring 2011

Monarch Butterfly
iIllustra Media recently began production on a new film—Metamorphosis: The Beauty and Power of Intelligent Design. This documentary will explore compelling evidence for intelligent design as revealed through the life cycle of butterflies.

Red Lacewing Butterfly
The subject matter of Metamorphosis represents some of the most powerful evidence for design in all of nature. The transformation from caterpillar to chrysalis to adult butterfly defies Darwinian evolution through random variation and small gradual steps. In fact, some evolutionary biologists have called the process of metamorphosis, "butterfly magic." That’s not surprising, given that inside the chrysalis, the cells of the caterpillar break down into a chemical soup. Then new cells—butterfly cells—form from the molecular components. In just a few days, these cells are reassembled into an adult butterfly that has virtually no resemblance to a caterpillar.

The release of Metamorphosis is scheduled for Spring 2011.

WHAT HATH DARWIN WROUGHT?
What Hath Darwin Wrought?

Premieres Summer 2010

"What Hath Darwin Wrought?" investigates the shocking history of "social Darwinism" in America and Europe, including the eugenics crusade against the "unfit," the euthanasia movement, Nazi genocide, and current efforts to devalue the lives of the handicapped. Is social Darwinism a logical application of Darwin's theory or a perversion of it?

"What Hath Darwin Wrought?" Hosted by Todd Friel, the program features Discovery Institute Senior Fellows David Berlinski, author of The Devil's Delusion: Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions and The Deniable Darwin and Other Essays; John West, author of Darwin Day in America: How Our Politics and Culture Have Been Dehumanized in the Name of Science; and historian Richard Weikart, author of From Darwin to Hitler: Evolutionary Ethics, Eugenics, and Racism in Germany.

In Darwin Anniversary Year: Zogby Poll Reveals Majority Support for Intelligent Design

In Darwin Anniversary Year
New Zogby Poll Reveals Majority
Support for Intelligent Design
 
June 30, 2009

Just a few months before the 150th birthday and the 150th anniversary of Darwin's On the Origin of Species, a newly released Zogby poll shows that the American public overwhelmingly rejects Darwinian theory in favor of intelligent design. When asked if life developed "through an unguided process of random mutations and natural selection," a standard definition of Darwinism, only 33 percent of respondents said they agreed with the statement. But 52 percent agreed that "the development of life was guided by intelligent design."

Did Life Develop through Unguided Process or Intelligent Design?
The poll results come from one of four questions commissioned by Discovery Institute for a national Zogby telephone survey conducted earlier in 2009. Results from the other three questions were released previously to coincide with the bicentennial of Charles Darwin's birth. The new results are highlighted below, and the full report is available here.

Question about Intelligent Design

Now, I am going to read you two statements about the development of life. Please tell me which statement comes closest to your own point of view—Statement A or Statement B?

Statement A: The development of life came about through an unguided process of random mutations and natural selection.

Statement B: The development of life was guided by intelligent design.

Statement A 33% Statement B 52% Neither 7% Other/Not sure 8%

Happy Birthday, Mr. Darwin:
Growing Majority of Americans Support
Teaching Both Sides of Evolution Debate
 
February 10, 2009

Just in time for Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday and the 150th anniversary of his Origin of Species, a new nationwide Zogby poll of likely voters indicates overwhelming public support for teaching the scientific evidence for and against Darwin’s theory. The poll shows similar overwhelming support for giving students and teachers the academic freedom to discuss the "strengths and weaknesses" of evolution.

Support For Teaching Evidence For and Against Darwin's Theory 2009
According to Discovery Institute’s Dr. John West, the poll results may shatter some preconceptions held by those in the media about who supports letting students hear a balanced presentation on Darwinian theory.

"Media reports insinuate that a right-wing conspiracy of know-nothings and religious extremists is afoot," said West. "But the new Zogby poll reveals a broad-based and well-informed public consensus for academic freedom on evolution. That consensus includes Democrats, Republicans, liberals, moderates, independents, and every race, gender, and age group. The Darwin Lobby has isolated itself from public opinion."

According to the poll, Democrats (82%) and liberals (86%) are even more likely than Republicans (73%) and conservatives (72%) to support the academic freedom of teachers and students to discuss the "strengths and weaknesses of evolution."

The poll also shows a dramatic 9-point increase over 2006 in the percentage of likely voters who agree that "Biology teachers should teach Darwin’s theory of evolution, but also the scientific evidence against it." Support for that position has jumped to 78%, up from 69% in 2006. The percentage of likely voters who favor teaching only the evidence for evolution suffered a corresponding decline of 7 points, from 21% in 2006 to just over 14% this year.


"Clearly, the Darwin-only crowd is losing public support," said West. "There seems to be a backlash against the strong-arm tactics that have been used in recent years to censor and intimidate scientists, teachers, and students who raise criticisms of Darwin."

Zogby International conducted the survey of 1,053 likely voters from 1/29/09 through 1/31/09. A more detailed summary of the poll results is available here.
