evolution in 2 minutes…

i’m more excited to see the results of this contest than the return of Haley’s Comet!  this following challenge is the challenge i would extend to every media team, documentary maker, science teacher, etc.  make it happen, make it impactful, make it convincing!

Can you communicate the most important idea in biology, and one of the most controversial ideas in our society, in a mere 120 seconds? Think you can convince even the most hard-headed creationist that Darwin was right? If so, show us—and that creationist—how it’s done.

Your task is to create a video of no more than two minutes that will get the idea and significance of evolution across to an educated lay audience. Along the way, you can touch on points like how evolution works, how we know it to be true, the evolution of humanity, and the future of evolution.

i was convinced in a very short amount of time of the truthfulness of evolution while attending a biology class.  problem is, no one in xtian america will give science any more time than 2 minutes to convince them.  but the evidence is so extremely overwhelming that i am sure this is about all one needs if they are somewhat edumacated.  😉
