On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Brian Miller examines evolutionary explanations for the development of the eye. What is needed to build a complex eye? And how long would it take to get the necessary coordinated mutations? Miller argues the eye presents multiple insurmountable problems for evolution.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews CSC senior fellow Dr. Mike Keas, author and expert on science pedagogy. Dr. Keas discusses True U, a worldview curriculum aimed at high school and college students. Dr. Keas contributes to the teaching resources at TrueU.org. Listen in as they talk about the impact of the New Atheists and how scientifically-based arguments such as intelligent design have religious implications.
True U is an extraordinary resource to help students understand what they think about the world and the big questions of life. For more information, visit the website at www.TrueU.org.
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.
