If you search "biological essentialism" you will run into gender issues which is not the main topic for this video.
The larger academic and historical meaning of "biological essentialism" is that manatees make more manatees and that acorns give us oak trees and not pines.

biological essentialism
species
fixity of species
natural kinds
Aristotle's biology
typology
and stasis.

Chapter nine of my new book deals with biological essentialism:

It is interesting to me that recorded history is only "thousands" of years old. The assumption that there are ‘millions’ of years of pre-recorded history is just that; an assumption. Assumptions have a way of biting you if you’re not careful in your analysis. This book examines those assumptions with careful analysis.

Scholars can show a respectful attitude toward the young earth.
R. F. Diffendal Jr. in his article “Earth in Four Dimensions: Development of the Ideas of Geologic Time and History” in Nebraska History presents the controversy fairly:

"To some extent the arguments about a short Earth history of a few thousand years versus a long history of billions of years are still going on today. Most natural scientists support the long history. However, some people including Richard Milton … support the idea of a short one."
**quoted in YES - Young Earth Science by Jay Hall, p. 190

Milton is a Mensan, agnostic and science journalist. He appeared in The Mysterious Origins of Man hosted by Charlton Heston and defends a young earth.

What is your worldview? Old earth or youthful planet? Have you been overly influenced by the "Frame of Reference" of the Darwinian Zeitgeist dominant in higher education?

Here's the debate featuring William F. Buckley:

Is the mainstream scientific complex dogmatic on origins?

The Mayans may have been wrong about the end of the world, but they calculated the solar year to astonishing accuracy – they were off by only 23 seconds!

We are now in the Renaissance of Catastrophism. In 1923 J Harlen Bretz advanced the concept that a great flood of water stormed through the Pacific Northwest. Forty years later, in 1963, the International Association for Quaternary Research met in the U.S. and sent a telegram to Bretz ending “We are now all catastrophists."
