* RSR Interviews Illustra Media's Science Film Producer: Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart welcomes back Lad Allen of Illustra Media to discuss his latest film, ORIGIN: Design, Chance and the First Life on Earth. Featuring scientists Paul Nelson and Ann Gauger (and narration by Alvin Chea of Take Six), ORIGIN presents spectacular computer animation and cutting-edge research to examine the question that has baffled science: How did life on Earth begin? Today, most researchers insist it arose through simple chemistry that—without direction or plan—transformed inanimate matter into the first living cell. Yet, this explanation is devoid of evidence and unsatisfying, even to many of its most ardent supporters. As ORIGIN exposes the flaws of materialistic theories, you’ll travel through a molecular universe to encounter extraordinary biological engineering fundamental to the survival of every organism that has ever existed, engineering that points clearly to intelligence and mind. RSR recommends: Buy ORIGIN now, at Amazon.com on DVD or Blu-ray!
* Protein Sequence Analog from Physics: Discussing the 2018 Nobel Prize in physics, University of Nottingham's Prof. Mike Merrifield said, "Unfortunately, of all the many ways of sticking things together, 99.999% of them are complete rubbish." And with proteins, add a bunch more nines, and you get the idea.
* One Dead Protein: Bob Enyart points out that even if a trillion universes all pulled together to overcome the odds of a protein forming and folding by chance, with that natural processes producing a first protein... so what? All you'd have is a single, non-living protein molecule.
