Recent Arctic Sea Ice Loss and Human Pregnancy Design | Stars, Cells, and God ep11

Join Hugh Ross and Fazale Rana as they discuss new discoveries taking place at the frontiers of science that have theological and philosophical implications, as well as new discoveries that point to the reality of God’s existence. Two satellites reveal that the winter Arctic sea ice volume declined by 12.5% from 2018 to 2021. If the current rate of winter Arctic sea ice loss continues, it will be only a matter of years before large parts of the Arctic Ocean become ice-free in winter. How could ice-free winters potentially bring on the next ice age? And what can we do to prevent further melting of the winter Arctic ice cap? The human birthing process is fraught with difficulties caused by our upright posture and bipedalism. Many skeptics point to these difficulties as evidence that human beings must have evolved. Why would a Creator design human beings—the crown of his creation—with a flawed birthing process? Couldn’t he have done a better job? In this episode, Fazale Rana discusses two new discoveries underscoring the rationale of the human birthing process. Far from being flawed, the process of human birthing is highly optimal, characterized by a set of well-designed trade-offs.
