On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses his recent article in Salvo Magazine, "Deity Added: Theistic Evolution Is Nearly as Problematic as Atheistic Darwinism," which explains many scientific problems with the theistic evolution viewpoint. Listen in as Luskin explains what the evidence shows, and notes that "theistic evolutionists make precisely the same scientific arguments that secular, atheistic, Darwinian evolutionists make. Theistic evolutionists essentially baptize materialistic ideas by adding, 'And by the way, God did it this way'--although when pressed they'd admit that you can't empirically detect God's actions in any of it."

On this episode of ID the Future, hear a past episode of The Universe Next Door in which Tom Woodward talks to CSC Associate Director John West about the themes of his book The Magician's Twin: C. S. Lewis on Science, Scientism, and Society. If C. S. Lewis were around today, would he be a supporter of intelligent design or theistic evolution? Dr. West discusses what Lewis has to say about science, evolution, and the dangers of scientism.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear a recent debate between Dr. Stephen Meyer and Rev. Michael Dowd that took place on the Michael Medved Show. Rev. Dowd is an advocate of Evolution Theology, or "Religion 2.0" (see his personal credo here), and author of Thank God for Evolution.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear more of Dr. Stephen Webb’s conversation with CSC Research Coordinator Casey Luskin. Webb tells his personal story of how he became interested in intelligent design, and discusses his experience as an ID-friendly professor teaching a class on evolution and religion.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin is again on The Universe Next Door with Tom Woodward, this time discussing Darwin’s Doubt and what it adds to the discussion about one of the most important events in the history of animal life--the Cambrian explosion.
On this episode of ID the Future, listen in on Casey Luskin’s conversation with Dr. Stephen Webb as they discuss Dr. Webb’s recent debate on intelligent design with Stephen Meredith at First Things. Dr. Webb explains “occasionalism” and how it relates to the intelligent design debate, and also looks at other criticisms made by theistic evolutionists that actually conflict one another.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with Ryan Huxley, president of the Intelligent Design & Evolution Awareness (IDEA) Center, about his recent work creating free study guides for Illustra Media documentaries on intelligent design. Mr. Huxley also gives some background on the IDEA Center and how he became involved with the organization.

On this episode of ID the Future, hear an episode of Tom Woodward’s radio show The Universe Next Door, which features CSC Research Coordinator Casey Luskin. Luskin explains the mystery of the Cambrian explosion, gives examples of human designs that copy designs in nature, and gives 5 major problems with current theories about the chemical origin of life.
On this episode of ID the Future
, biologist Ann Gauger discusses the popular science myth that human DNA is only 1% different from that of chimps. Dr. Gauger shows why this common claim is false, looking at genomic evidence as well as large-scale differences between humans and chimps.
Ann Gauger is a senior research scientist at Biologic Institute. Her work uses molecular genetics and genomic engineering to study the origin, organization and operation of metabolic pathways. Her research has been published in
Nature, Development, and the
Journal of Biological Chemistry.
On this episode of ID The Future: If human engineers in the lab get molecular machines to imitate cellular machines, it's intelligent design. What does this imply about the cellular machines?
