Catholic Church Voice ?
Creation and Miracles Past and Present by Brother Michael Dimond
Disproves Evolution
Evidence of a Worldwide Flood
That evolution is a dangerous theory which we already knew but interesting coming from a Catholic Benedictine Monk.

Why Post?
Why post a video full of lies and errors? Seems silly.

I agree the Catholic Monk's video did a quite good job of exposing evolution as a dangerous belief full of silly lies and errors. I'm sure its not silly to the Catholic Church to expose the dangerous side to the lies and errors of evolution to their lay people.
P.S. If you want to understand more of the lies and errors of evolution check out this website. Kent Hovind has a special sense of humor thats quite refreshing. While he is not a Catholic he too challenges the silly lies and errors with his special sense of humor, etc...

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.
Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Source

The Genius of Darwin on BBC Radio 4
To mark the the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of publication of the On the Origin of Species, BBC Radio 4 is broadcasting several programmes on Darwin, his work and his impact on our world.
BBC - Radio 4 - Darwin
They begin on Monday 5th with In Our Timediscussing "why Darwin's writing remains such a profound influence on our understanding of the natural world". The shows should be available for a week after they are broadcast via BBCiPlayer and the Radio 4 website.
Expect a lot of this sort of thing in 2009!

This one's for the Dutchies. On January 6th the EO (evangalical broadcating organization) will kick off the darwin year on public tv (yes, irony is a great thing). They will do so with a talkshow featuring 3 scientists. One of which is a creationist, one of which is an "evolutionist" and one of which it states is an ID'ist, but who upon further inspection turns out to be a sort of theistic evolutionist.
here's the website: EO - aftrap Darwinjaar (all in Dutch, sorry)
I don't know if this will be available with English subs later, but if it is, I'll be sure to link you all to it.

Together with our friends the Surinamers, we Belgians strongly oppose this blatant display of discrimination.
But thanks anyway. ;-)

TV Program: Plate Tectonics
Series: How the Earth was Made (2009)
Episode: The Deepest Place on Earth
Channel: History Channel (yes, really)
Using the Marianas Trench (5-7 miles deep) as a central focus, the program follows the history of discovery of plate tectonics. It explains better than anything else I've ever read or watched why plates move (ridge-push and slab-pull), why sea floor subducts (it cools as it moves from the ridge, gradually growing denser with age and finally diving into the mantle), how magnetic sea floor striping occurs, why ridges of volcanic activity form a couple hundred miles behind subduction zones, and finally, why trenches form at subduction zones.
This program might be hard to find. Though it's a series and I've programmed my TiVo to find it, I've only picked up this one episode so far.

Dawkins webcast tonight (UK time)
2009 is the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth and the 150th anniversary of his book On the Origin of Species. To mark these events, The Open University invites you to watch a live webcast of their 2009 Annual Lecture which will be followed by a panel discussion. The event will be taking place at 19:30 (GMT/UTC) on Tuesday 17 March.
In his lecture, Professor Dawkins asks whether Darwin was the most revolutionary scientist ever.
Dawkins suggests that there are 5 ‘bridges to evolutionary understanding’. The first 4 of these correspond to the 4 scientists whose work contributed to the theory of evolution by natural selection: Edward Blyth, Patrick Matthew, Alfred Wallace and Charles Darwin. The fifth bridge is modern genetics, or ‘digital Darwinism’.

"In Our Time" on Whale Evolution
This show went out a few weeks ago, but it's still available online.
BBC Radio 4 - In Our Time, The Whale - A History
The Whale - A History
Melvyn Bragg and guests Steve Jones, Bill Amos and Eleanor Weston discuss the evolutionary history of the whale.
The ancestor of all whales alive today was a small, land-based mammal with cloven hoofs, perhaps like a pig or a big mole. How this creature developed into the celebrated leviathan of the deep is one of the more extraordinary stories in the canon of evolution. The whale has undergone vast changes in size, has moved from land to water, lost its legs and developed specialised features such as filter feeding and echo location. How it achieved this is an exemplar of how evolution works and how natural selection can impose extreme changes on the body shape and abilities of living things. How the story of the whales was pieced together also reveals the various forms of evidence - from fossils to molecules - that we now use to understand the ancestry of life on Earth.
Steve Jones is Professor of Genetics at University College London; Eleanor Weston is a mammalian palaeontologist at the Natural History Museum, London; Bill Amos is Professor of Evolutionary Genetics at Cambridge University.
I'm listening to it now and it's an enjoyable listen, with a good overview of the evolution of whales.
