On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Ann Gauger, co-author of Science & Human Origins and senior research scientist at the Biologic Institute. In recent years, human origins has become an especially hot topic as some scientists claim that the human race is a product of undirected natural selection and cannot be traced back to two parents. Dr. Gauger disagrees. Tune in to hear Dr. Gauger discuss the evidence against human-ape common ancestry, drawing from her research in such fields as anatomy and population genetics.

On this episode of ID the Future, the CSC's Rob Crowther speaks with Casey Luskin, co-author of the new book Science & Human Origins. There are frequent and spurious claims made in the media that the genetic and fossil evidence of human-ape common ancestry is incontrovertible. In Science and Human Origins, Doug Axe, Ann Gauger, and Casey Luskin seek to equip readers with the knowledge to discern interpretation from fact and rhetoric from evidence. Listen in as Luskin introduces the book and specifically discusses his own assessment of the fossil data.

On this episode of ID the Future, hear Casey Luskin's interview with Issues, Etc., in which he responds to false claims that intelligent design theory is based on religious belief. Casey discusses how many Darwin doubters have found the scientific evidence for Darwinian evolution to be greatly lacking, despite claims of a "scientific consensus" on evolution.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin addresses the question: Is intelligent design science? While the precise definition of "science" has long been debated, most would agree that there are certain qualities that clearly define some ideas as science. Luskin examines the theory of intelligent design by this criteria, showing how ID uses the scientific method, undergoes peer review, and does not require non-natural causes.

On this episode of ID the Future, Andrew McDiarmid talks with biologist Ann Gauger about the ability of biology to continually surprise us--even when we think the science is settled. Dr. Gauger discusses some scientific "facts" that have since been disproved, and also reflects on her own experiences as a student, and later as a researcher, as she has realized that life is much more sophisticated than we could have imagined.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Jonathan Wells about a recent article that claims that the human genome is full of useless, non-functional DNA. Dr. Wells explains the concept of “junk DNA,” and why there is such a stark disagreement between those who say our genome is at least 80% functional, and those who say it’s only 8.2%--and how we can know who to listen to.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews microbiologist and immunologist Donald Ewert about his previous work as associate editor for the journal Development and Comparitive Immunology, where he realized that the papers published were comparative studies that had nothing to do with evolution at all. Listen in to learn how, in Dr. Ewert's words, "evolutionary theory doesn't contribute to experimental biology." Donald L. Ewert is a research immunologist/virologist who spent much of his career studying the molecular and cell biology of the immune system, as well as theories about its evolution. Dr. Ewert received his Ph.D. from the University of Georgia in 1976. As a microbiologist, he operated a research laboratory at the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia for almost twenty years. The Wistar Institute is one of the world's leading centers for biomedical research. His research, supported by National Institute of Health, National Science Foundation, and Department of Agriculture grants, has involved the immune system, viruses, and cellular biology.

On this episode of ID the Future Dr. David Snoke continues his conversation with Casey Luskin on his recent paper on systems biology and how it relates to intelligent design. Snoke discusses the assumptions made by systems biology, and the different predictions made by Darwinism and intelligent design--especially in the context of junk DNA and useless vestigial parts.

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. David Snoke talks with Casey Luskin about his newly published paper, "Systems Biology as a Research Program for Intelligent Design." Dr. Snoke explains what systems biology is and how it arose, and looks and how the approach, putting intelligent design concepts into practice, has seen successful results.

On this episode of ID the Future, Rob Crowther interviews Casey Luskin about his recent article, "The Constitutionality and Pedagogical Benefits of Teaching Evolution Scientifically," published in the University of St. Thomas Journal of Law & Public Policy. Luskin shares from his research of the problems facing American science education -- how students are not inspired to pursue science and not taught how to think like scientists -- and the solution of inquiry-based science education.

How does critical analysis of evolution promote scientific thinking? And what does the law say about teaching critiques of Darwin's theory? Tune in to find out.
