On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Research Coordinator Dr. Brian Miller discusses micro and macro evolution in terms of fitness terrains. Can we compare design principles in human engineering to life? Listen in as Miller shares how the process of optimization unravels the explanatory power of neo-Darwinism.
On this episode of ID the Future, learn about new and exciting uses for DNA in information storage, electrical engineering, and more. Did you know that all the world’s data could, theoretically, be stored in DNA that would fit in one room (or even smaller)?
On this episode of ID the Future, Brian Miller interviews Michael Flannery on how Darwin’s background conditioned him to materialism, and how this influence impacted his development of the theory of evolution. Listen in to learn more about Darwin’s experiences at the University of Edinburgh with the Plinian Society, and his interaction with prominent atheists Aveling and Büchner near the end of his life.
On this episode of ID the Future, Sarah Chaffee explores two topics: a recent academic freedom resolution in Indiana, and the burgeoning science of space archaeology. Listen in!

In this episode of ID The Future, Casey Luskin interviews Bradley J. Monton, Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Colorado, Boulder, about his book Seeking God in Science: An Atheist Defends Intelligent Design. As the book's title suggests, Monton is an atheist who feels that some intelligent design (ID) arguments hold merit and are worth taking seriously. Listen to this podcast as Monton explains how ID-critics commonly dismiss the theory through fallacious objections that do not address the actual arguments of ID-proponents.
On this episode of ID the Future, Brian Miller interviews Paul Nelson about orphan genes. What are these genes? How common are they? What is the pan-genome?And how does all this impact the evolution-intelligent design debate? Nelson argues that these little orphans spell big trouble for Neo-Darwinism.
On this episode of ID the Future, Ann Gauger discusses a central argument used by evolutionary biologists to say it’s simple to get new proteins. Listen in to learn more about nylonase, and whether it shows that purely natural processes can produce biological information.
On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Jay Richards talks with John Lennox about his book God and Stephen Hawking: Whose Design Is It Anyway?. In this book, Prof. Lennox counters Stephen Hawking’s argument in The Grand Design that “the universe can and will create itself from nothing.” Is philosophy dead, as Hawking claims? Is the so-called M-theory the “only viable candidate” for a complete ‘theory of everything’? Tune in and find out!
On this episode of ID the Future, learn about educational opportunities coming up with Discovery Institute! Ann Gauger shares about the next ID Education Day in and the Summer Seminars. Listen in to find out more.
