RSR: Plants Couldn't Evolve UV Protection

evolution of plant UV protection* Resistant Strains Predate Antibiotics, Impact Can't Explain Dino Extinction,  Gold Sinks,  and Plants Protect Against Ultraviolet Rays: Real Science Radio co-hosts Fred Williams and Bob Enyart discuss great news stories from the winter 2012 edition of Creation magazine. The guys explain why plants evolving their sophisticated feedback system for ultra-violet protection is a logical impossibility.

* Post-Show Note: Help RSR Create a Dawkins Color Vision Challenge: Following in the lines of our PZ Myers Trochlea Challenge (for which PZ honestly answered, "I don't know"), Bob and Fred are constructing a similar challenge but for Richard Dawkins and regarding a different aspect of the alleged evolution of vision. The guys are hoping to get an artist to volunteer to sketch their challenge, and also, they're eager to get comments and constructive criticism on the challenge itself.
