Evolution of the Eye
Charles Johnson, the creator and moderator of the blog Little Green Footballs, a blog I ordinarily look to for political commentary (It was he that broke the news that the George Bush National Guard letters had been faked), seems to have gotten interested in the Intelligent Design debate and has posted a link to a video that I should have caught up with a bit back, myself. It is a short video on the evolution of the eye and how different eyes exist in nature. It also includes a short section how the eye develops in utero and how that mirrors development evolutionarily. No that is not "ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny," but it does show how development likely occurred over time.
