On this episode of ID the Future, Sarah Chaffee discusses the University of Chicago’s recent action to uphold academic freedom, including a letter to incoming freshman and a piece by Pres. Robert Zimmer in the Wall Street Journal. As Zimmer notes, “Every attempt to legitimize silencing creates justification for others to restrain speech that they do not like in the future.”
On this episode of ID the Future, Andrew McDiarmid narrates the prologue to Stephen Meyer's Darwin's Doubt: The Explosion of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design. HarperOne will soon move into production on audiobook versions of Darwin's Doubt and Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design.
On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Dominic Halsmer, Dean of the College of Science and Engineering at Oral Roberts University, continues the discussion of his peer-reviewed paper, "The Coherence Of An Engineered World,” published in the International Journal of Design & Nature and Ecodynamics. Listen in as Dr. Halsmer explains some of the aesthetic arguments for design from beauty in science, engineering, and the study of humanity. How do modularity, specificity, adaptability, durability, and other aspects of engineering systems argue for intelligent design in nature? Tune in to find out.
On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Dominic Halsmer, Dean of the College of Science and Engineering at Oral Roberts University, discusses his recent peer-reviewed paper, “The Coherence Of An Engineered World,” published in the International Journal of Design & Nature and Ecodynamics. Listen in as Dr. Halsmer explains to Casey Luskin why the universe is bio-friendly and the signs of engineering he sees in nature.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Dr. Donald E. Johnson about his book, Programming of Life, which compares the workings of biology to a computer. Listen in as Dr. Johnson explains what inspired his latest book as an information scientist addressing the origin of life.
Donald E. Johnson holds two Ph.D.s, one in Computer & Information Sciences from the University of Minnesota and another in Chemistry from Michigan State University. His website is ScienceIntegrity.net.
On this episode of ID the Future, software engineer Brendan Dixon continues his discussion of artificial intelligence, looking at the about the future of autonomous machines and the issues that can arise.
On this episode of ID The Future, Casey Luskin critiques some of the macroevolutionary “gems” from Nature’s Evolution-Evangelism packet, including whale evolution, feathered dinosaurs, and Tiktaalik. Listen in as he explains why predictions about Tiktaalik from leading evolutionary scientists such as Jerry Coyne and the National Academy of Sciences were overturned by the discovery of 397 million year old tetrapod tracks in early 2010.

On this episode of ID the Future, hear from software engineer Brendan Dixon as he compares the human brain to artificial intelligence. He argues that the metaphor of the brain being like a computer is grossly insufficient--to the point of being false—and discusses why we should have a cautious approach to AI.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin examines the lament of some Darwinists that new PhDs aren’t being taught enough about evolution. How can “a generation of biologists without an adequate background in evolution” work as scientists? Tune in to find out the answer is so obvious that few committed evolutionists will accept it.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin talks with bioethicist Wesley J. Smith about an article he wrote at First Things. In this article, Smith responds to an accusation that he is "anti-science" for suggesting that science should have ethical boundaries. Listen in as Luskin and Smith discuss how the "anti-science" label, along with similar terms, is often used to try and suppress dialogue and protect scientific orthodoxy.
