You Won’t Believe These Animals // Rightnow Media Video Spotlight

by Nate Powell
For some time, our church has held a subscription to an video service that is the “Netflix” of Christian video content. It’s called Rightnow Media, and if you’ve not signed up to use it with us. Click this link and do it for free. You can use their app to watch in a web browser on your computer, in the Rightnow Media app for iOS or Android, or using Rightnow Media apps on such devices as Roku or Apple TV. It is truly a fantastic service that we don’t use nearly enough. I want to change that. So occasionally on the Pastor Blog, I’m going to highlight a video or show that you or your family might want to check out.
First up is a show called Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution (and there are 3 episodes of this great series). I’m not sure if that title sounds exciting to you, but students were mesmerized a few years ago when we showed these videos at camp, and honestly, they are great videos for all ages, kid to adult. Not only will you learn some things about animals that you never heard of, but you will hear about the idea of irreducible complexity. Irreducible complexity is an idea put forward by intelligent design proponents, and this is the gist of it: that there are biological systems that seem very basic, yet are so complex that you could not remove a part of it and have it function. In other words, there are certain animals that, simply by their design, prove that they could not have possibly evolved. I hope you’ll check out these Incredible Creatures, and let me know what you thought of the series after you do!
As a side note, if you’d like to read more about irreducible complexity, consider reading Michael Behe’s book, Darwin’s Black Box.
