On this episode of ID the Future, David Klinghoffer discusses the term antiscience - and how it's now used by those on both sides of disagreements on scientific issues. Klinghoffer suggests that we discard the label.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin continues his examination of Nature's "15 Evolutionary Gems" packet, going through the literature on small-scale, micro-evolutionary changes -- and how they fail to account for larger, macro-evolutionary changes. Listen in as Luskin discusses changes in birds' beaks and guppies' spots and what they really tell us about evolutionary theory.

On this episode of ID the Future, David Klinghoffer discusses the results of opinion surveys of academic freedom on evolution, which reflect massive public support of academic freedom from all demographics--including atheists and theists, Democrats and Republicans--despite pushback on academic freedom from academia.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin examines Nature's "15 Evolutionary Gems" packet, which he describes as "an evangelism packet for those wishing to spread the good news about Darwinism." The packet purported to show "just what is the evidence for evolution by natural selection," but Luskin looks at these jewels and finds that they're just paste. Listen in to this first installment on Stickleback fish.

Klinghoffer calls the book an "intellectual tool," and explains how the book engages even the non-scientists on key scientific issues of the day.
On this episode of ID the Future, listen to an article from Evolution News on a recent survey showing strong nationwide backing for academic freedom. This support spans diverse religious and political affiliations, and differences in gender and age.
This episode of ID the Future features part two of Casey Luskin's interview with James LeFanu, author of Why Us?: How Science Rediscovered the Mystery of Ourselves. According to Dr. LeFanu, one of the problems with Darwin's theory and where it stands today is that it presupposes that the argument is closed, draining interest and fascination from the question of our origins.
Dr. LeFanu discusses the problems with the Darwinian explanation for the evolution of the eye and how the development of genetics has brought our attention to the deep inscrutability of the nature of genetic structures and the origin of life. Can natural selection acting on random mutations account for these features? Listen in as Dr. LeFanu explains how science is on the cusp of this intriguing moment, rediscovering the mystery of ourselves.
This episode of ID the Future features part one of Casey Luskin's interview with James LeFanu, author of Why Us?: How Science Rediscovered the Mystery of Ourselves. Dr. LeFanu shares his perspective as someone who straddles two worlds, encountering science on a micro level in his practice as a medical doctor, and reflecting on the broader aspects of science and medicine as an author and columnist for the UK's Daily Telegraph. Dr. LeFanu explains why he doubts the too-simplistic Darwinian account, where the "facade of knowing" is daily challenged by the inescapable complexity of life.
