Intelligent Design Film to Premiere at Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History Sept. 29

Intelligent Design Author Will Also Speak at OU

NORMAN, Okla., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The debate over Darwin rages on in America's heartland as intelligent design comes to the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History September 29th with the Southwestern debut of Darwin's Dilemma, a new film on the challenges to evolution in the fossil record. To view a trailer and clips from the film please visit

Darwin's Dilemma will be screened at Kerr Auditorium in the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, with a post-film discussion featuring two leading intelligent design scientists, Dr. Stephen C. Meyer, author of Signature in the Cell, and Dr. Jonathan Wells, biologist and author of Icons of Evolution.

The film is sponsored by the University of Oklahoma IDEA (Intelligent Design and Evolution Awareness) Club, as is an additional talk by Dr. Meyer, who will present his new book Signature in the Cell: DNA and Evidence for Intelligent Design in a free lecture on September 28th in Meacham Auditorium at University of Oklahoma. In his new book, Dr. Meyer shows that the digital code embedded in DNA powerfully points to a designing intelligence and helps unravel a mystery that Darwin never addressed: how did the very first life begin?

Darwin's Dilemma explores one of the great mysteries in the history of life: The sudden appearance of dozens of major complex animal types in the fossil record without any trace of the gradual transitional steps predicted by Darwin. Frequently described as "the Cambrian Explosion," the development of these new animal types required a massive increase in genetic information.

The film, shot on location at fossil digs in China and Canada, traces Darwin's own study of the fossil record and recreates the prehistoric world of the Cambrian era with state-of-the-art computer animation. Darwin's Dilemma also features interviews with leading evolutionary paleontologists such as Simon Conway Morris of Cambridge University and James Valentine of the University of California at Berkeley, as well as Dr. Meyer, Dr. Wells, and other intelligent design proponents.
