Examining Von Baer's Law

On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Fellow Paul Nelson discusses von Baer's Law and the recent critiques of this evolutionary hypothesis.

Von Baer's Law describes a picture of embryonic development in animals: embryos are most similar at earliest stages; as development proceeds, animals increasingly diverge in their form. This makes sense if evolution is seen as a conservative process that builds on what comes before, but many critics see this as a generalization without support from the scientific evidence. What do scholars have to say about the validity of Von Baer's Law today?
