A biology professor who grew up under communism shares what it was like to live in a society based on Darwin’s theory of evolution. He also discusses some amazing evidence of intelligent design in our cells. Biologist Jonathan Wells, author of Zombie Science, and political scientist John West, author of Darwin Day in America, both respond. This conversation was taped live in Hollywood during a discussion after the final performance of Disinherit the Wind, a play that tells the story of a neurobiologist who sues his university for the right to challenge neo-Darwinian evolution.
On this episode from the ID the Future vault, Casey Luskin interviews Michael Behe on his peer-reviewed scientific paper in Quarterly Review of Biology. Dr. Behe explains why most examples of evolution in bacteria and viruses entail loss or modification of function rather than gain of a new function at the molecular level. In Behe’s view, this could pose a challenge to Darwinian explanations of molecular evolution.

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. John Bloom finishes up his conversation with Casey Luskin about evidence for design in the universe from physics and cosmology. Listen in as Dr. Bloom discusses how prevalent design-friendly views are in the physics world.
On this episode of ID the Future, Robert Crowther asks biologist Jonathan Wells, author of Zombie Science, what icons of evolution students should be on the lookout for as they head back to school. Wells says there are several still in wide circulation.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin continues his conversation with Dr. John Bloom about a WSJ op-ed by Eric Metaxas, "Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God." Dr. Bloom explains the concept of fine tuning and why it's such a compelling argument for design in the universe.
On this episode of ID the Future, Ira Berkowitz interviews M.I.T. Ph.D. Lee Spetner in Jerusalem. Spetner challenges the idea of convergent evolution and explains his non-random evolutionary hypothesis.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear from Dr. John Bloom, a CSC Fellow and professor at Biola University, as he explains some of the evidence of design in the universe from physics and cosmology. In this first segment, Dr. Bloom talks about the “Big Bang” and how it supports the theory of intelligent design. Listen in!
On this episode of ID the Future, Ira Berkowitz interviews M.I.T. Ph.D. Lee Spetner in Jerusalem. Togethe they explore key arguments from Spetner’s books Not by Chance and The Evolution Revolution. Spetner takes on natural selection, discussing what it can and cannot do. He also explores aspects of population genetics and the constraints the Earth’s history imposes on evolving new species.
On this episode of ID: the Future, Ira Berkowitz interviews M.I.T. Ph.D. Lee Spetner in Jerusalem. Together they explore key arguments from Spetner’s books Not by Chance and The Evolution Revolution. Spetner explains why he considers Neo-Darwinism less than a theory and offers a surprising take on Thomas Malthus. Spetner also argues that, contrary to Darwinist propaganda, the evolution of antibiotic resistant bacteria demonstrates a loss of information rather than a gain.
On this episode of ID the Future, John G. West, associate director of Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture, explains the Darwinian basis for getting rid of the unfit. One way this manifested itself in the 20th century was in the eugenics movement’s disturbing push for compulsory sterilization. Listen in to learn about prominent scientists who supported these efforts, and the disturbing facts about how far they advanced toward making their ideas a reality.
