On this episode of ID the Future, Nate Herbst of The God Solution interviews Casey Luskin on the recent Homo naledi find. Luskin discusses claims of where Homo naledi fits into the fossil record and whether or not it buried its dead, ultimately answering the question, "Is Homo naledi a human ancestor?"
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with Felipe Aizpún, author of The Fifth Way and Intelligent Design (La quinta vía y el diseño inteligente) and prolific writer on ID and the debate over origins. Aizpún shares how intelligent design is both a scientific and philosophical argument, and discusses Thomist philosophers' opposition to ID.
On this episode of ID the Future, Phillip Johnson, the godfather of the modern intelligent design movement and author of Darwin on Trial, shares memories of the late Will Provine. An historian of science and evolutionary biologist at Cornell University, Provine was a longtime interlocutor and friend of Johnson. Listen in as Johnson shares about guest lecturing in Provine's evolutionary biology classes, remembers Provine's unusual candidness about the atheistic implications of Darwinism, and recounts their 1994 public debate.

On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Fellow Paul Nelson and Casey Luskin share memories of the late Will Provine, historian of science and evolutionary biologist at Cornell University. Provine, an evolutionary spokesman, was a longtime interlocutor of intelligent design proponents, who admired him for his willingness to challenge standard evolutionary views and his refreshing ability to express affection for opponents while disagreeing with them.

On this episode of ID the Future, listen to the first segment of a recent talk that Casey Luskin gave on ID and law where he unpacks the definition of intelligent design. As Casey points out, intelligent design involves much more than just a critique of Darwinian evolution; it uses reasoning to recognize patterns that show an intelligent origin, similar to methods employed in archaeology and forensic science.
On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze examines the plight of Dr. Daniel Shechtman, recent winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discovery of quasicrystals, who had previously suffered much rejection and ridicule for threatening the consensus of the scientific establishment. Listen in and consider the parallels between Shechtman's once-heretical science and the modern-day rejection and scorn of the ID movement.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear the final segment of Casey Luskin and Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig’s discussion of the long-necked giraffe. Tune in as Lönnig examines the potential of sexual selection as an evolutionary explanation of the long-necked giraffe and considers intelligent design as an alternate explanation.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin and Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig continue their discussion of why the body plan of the long-neck giraffe could not have evolved in a step-by-step Darwinian fashion. Dr. Lönnig gives an account of the rational design of the giraffe's recurrent laryngeal nerve, a feature that Richard Dawkins and other evolutionists claim can only be explained by Darwinian evolution.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with geneticist Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig about his book, The Evolution of the Long-Necked Giraffe. For years, Darwinists have presented the giraffe as a textbook example of adaptive morphological change in response to environmental conditions. Tune in as Dr. Lönnig discusses the problems with the idea that millions of years of mutations could create the many differences between a short-necked and a long-necked giraffe.
