The colouration of the Peppered Moth has been described as "one of the clearest and most easily understood examples of Darwinian evolution in action".

In this video, we will explore the story of this research, what it shows and, more importantly, what it does not.

The evolutionary explanation for life on Earth is heavily dependent on mutation to create beneficial changes that can be preserved via natural selection.

In this video we examine why mutation is not up to the task.

It is a common belief that as long as millions of years are available, evolution will happen. This is not necessarily true, since the number of years does not actually directly affect how quickly evolution takes place.

In this video, we look at what actually governs the speed of evolution and how that affects what it can do.

Evolution is generally described as the be-all and end-all of natural history, but is this actually the case?

Like all processes, it has its limits. In this video, I give an overview of some of the limitations I believe it has, and why the theory comes up short as an explanation for life.

I've seen a lot of Christians (including myself) try to debate atheists and come unstuck because we don't really understand how the theory of evolution works. You have to understand what someone believes before trying to debate them.

This video is meant to be a simple explanation of the mechanisms of evolution and what the theory actually says, rather than what a lot of people believe it says.
