On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Donald L. Ewert continues to explain why the vertebrate adaptive immune system does not use "random" or "chance" processes like Darwinian evolution to generate antibody diversity. Instead, he argues that the immune system is intelligently designed. Listen in as Dr. Ewert shares one of the most interesting stories in science, the generation of antibody diversity.

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, Casey Luskin continues his conversation with Dr. Vincent Torley about Dr. Torley's defense of Eric Metaxas' recent WSJ piece, Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God--against both religious and secular critics. Torely explains why his Catholicism is compatible with intelligent design in a way that is both intellectually sound and consistent with his world view.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with Dr. Vincent Torley about his defense of Eric Metaxas' recent WSJ op-ed, which argued that modern science points towards theism, rather than against it. Listen in as Dr. Torley discusses the limits of what we can determine about a creator from science, and also addresses some religious critiques of intelligent design.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin finishes his interview with Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig, an expert in plant breeding formerly affiliated with the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Germany. Dr. Lönnig discusses how Darwinian evolutionary biology held back the acceptance of the laws of inheritance, discovered by the famous monk Gregor Mendel.
Does a commitment to science mean the death of God? On this episode of ID the Future, hear from bestselling author Eric Metaxas about his new book "Miracles: What They Are, Why They Happen, and How They Can Change Your Life." Metaxas discusses the scientific evidence that points towards, rather than away from, a creator, and addresses the straw man critiques of his popular WSJ article "Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God."
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin continues talking with geneticist Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig about Gregor Mendel's laws of inheritance and how they opposed the thinking of Darwin. Lönnig explains how Darwinian evolution hindered the acceptance of Mendel's genetic laws, and how the laws still came to be accepted.
On this episode of ID the Future, geneticist Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig talks with CSC Research Coordinator Casey Luskin about Gregor Mendel's laws of inheritance and how they opposed the thinking of Darwin. Listen in as Dr. Lönnig explains Mendel's laws and why they're still relevant for biology, and particularly genetics.
Which requires more faith? A belief in multiple universes or a belief in the intelligent design of our universe? On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze explores the ideas found in a Harper’s Magazine article by MIT physicist and author Alan Lightman. Some physicists attempt to side-step the intelligent design implications of our finely-tuned universe by suggesting that ours is merely one of countless universes, each with its own laws and constants.
Lightman: “If the multiverse idea is correct, then the historic mission of physics to explain all the properties of our universe…is futile, a beautiful philosophical dream that simply isn’t true.”
Tune in as Boze explains why it takes more faith NOT to believe in intelligent design!
