On this episode of ID the Future, Jonathan Wells continues his conversation with Casey Luskin about his most recently published peer-reviewed article, "Membrane Patterns Carry Ontogenetic Information That Is Specified Independently of DNA." Listen in as Dr. Wells discusses the "sugar code," a non-DNA form of information that is determined by complex patterns of sugar molecules on membrane surfaces.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with Dr. Jonathan Wells about his newly published article, "Membrane Patterns Carry Ontogenetic Information That Is Specified Independently of DNA." In this first of a series of interviews, Dr. Wells gives an overview of his article, explaining why DNA information in an embryo can only do its job in the context of spatial information that is specified independently of it.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear Stephen Meyer discuss the themes of his New York Times bestseller Darwin's Doubt on The Universe Next Door with Tom Woodward. Dr. Meyer explains the significance of the Cambrian explosion and the fundamental issue of the origin of information, and also talks about new approaches to evolutionary theory in response to the inadequacy of neo-Darwinism.
On this episode of ID the Future, listen in as Casey Luskin talks with Dr. Robert Marks about his paper, "Active Information in Metabiology," that was recently published in Bio-Complexity and critiques the ideas of mathematician Gregory Chaitin. Dr. Marks explains metabiology and the significance of "active information" for intelligent design.
On this episode of ID the Future, Stephen Meyer is on The Universe Next Door with host Tom Woodward to discuss the errors of commission and omission in Cosmos, as well as two apparent arguments on the show--that science supports a purely materialistic worldview, and that science and religion are at war. Dr. Meyer also talks about the Cambrian explosion and its evidence for intelligent design.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear more about the BICEP2 Consortium's discovery from physicist Rob Sheldon. Dr. Sheldon explains his questioning of whether the signal detected by BICEP2 was real, and why he thinks the discovery has only a 1 in 10^60 chance of being correct.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with physicist Rob Sheldon about the BICEP2 Consortium's discovery, which is said to be a likely candidate for the Nobel Prize in Physics. Dr. Sheldon explains the BICEP2 discovery and it's impact on questions of cosmic fine-tuning.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear a recent episode of The Universe Next Door in which Stephen Meyer reflects on a debate he had recently with physicist Karl Giberson, a theistic evolutionist and co-founder of the Biologos Foundation. Meyer discusses theistic evolution and examines whether or not Christians should embrace neo-Darwinism.
On this episode of ID the Future, Joshua Youngkin takes a look at an open letter that Professor Massimo Pigliucci, philosopher and evolutionary biologist, wrote for his "Community of Reason," which he describes as "the broad set encompassing skeptics, atheists and secular humanists." Pigliucci's criticism is that many that claim to be the defenders of reason cling to their own irrational scientific, philosophical, and political beliefs, rather than engaging in dialogue or building critiques out of logic and evidence.
Pigliucci's thoughts on the subject can be read at his blog.
On this episode of ID the Future, physicist Rob Sheldon talks with Casey Luskin about how there has been a paradigm shift in cosmological thought. Though cosmologists used to believe that the universe existed eternally in a static state, they now see a finite universe that had a beginning. Dr. Sheldon also explores the implications of this shift for theism, materialism, and intelligent design.
