EPISODE DESCRIPTION

On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Fellow Paul Nelson discusses von Baer’s Law and the recent critiques of this evolutionary hypothesis.

Von Baer’s Law describes a picture of embryonic development in animals: embryos are most similar at earliest stages; as development proceeds, animals increasingly diverge in their form. This makes sense if evolution is seen as a conservative process that builds on what comes before, but many critics see this as a generalization without support from the scientific evidence. What do scholars have to say about the validity of Von Baer’s Law today?
