While the process of evolution has taken billions of years to unfold, this video shows its basic principles can be explained in about two minutes.  In those two minutes, the video outlines the three basic mechanisms of evolution — mutation, natural selection, and genetic drift — as well as the unifying power of evolution for modern biology.

As the video notes, “after 150 years of rigorous scientific testing every day, not a single observation or experiment has been made which has falsified the unifying principle of biology.”  The question is not if evolution happens, but rather where, when, and how evolution occurs.  By no means does evolution deny God’s role as Creator.

For more on evolution, be sure to see “What is evolution?” in our Questions section.
