On this reposted episode of ID the Future, listen as Casey Luskin and Stephen Webb discuss Dr. Webb’s intelligent design debate with Stephen Meredith at First Things. Dr. Webb explains occasionalism and how it relates to the intelligent design debate. He pushes back against this objection and against other theological objections to ID. For a remembrance of Webb, who died in 2016, see this Evolution News post by David Klinghoffer (https://www.evolutionnews.org/2016/03/remembering_ste/).
On this episode of ID the Future, Ray Bohlin interviews Jonathan Wells on so-called 'junk DNA'. Listen in as they discuss ENCODE and intron splicing. For more on myths of evolution, read Jonathan Wells’ new book, Zombie Science.
On this episode of ID the Future, Ray Bohlin interviews Winston Ewert, Ph.D., co-author with William Dembski and Robert Marks II of the new book, An Introduction to Evolutionary Informatics. Ewert argues that Richard Dawkins’ “Methinks It is Like a Weasel” simulation doesn’t prove biological evolution and isn’t even very interesting. Ewert says there are some interesting computer evolution simulations, but he argues that they fail to model anything biologically realistic.
It’s easy to win the game when you can move the goalpost. On this episode of ID the Future, biologist and Discovery Institute Senior Fellow Jonathan Wells explains how Darwinism, unlike football, has only one rule: survival of the fittest. The fittest are those who survive, and Darwinists are determined to survive at all costs–even if it means moving the goalpost.
On this episode of ID the Future, Ray Bohlin interviews Jonathan Wells on his recent book, Zombie Science. Listen in as Wells discusses vestigial organs and how textbooks retain incorrect ‘proofs’ for evolution decades after research has shown them false. And what are human tails – and what do they have to do with evolution?
On this episode of ID the Future, learn about a recent Middlebury college incident in which viewpoint intolerance led to violence, and a statement of support for academic freedom written by two professors on opposite ends of the political spectrum – and signers include Discovery Institute’s John West, Bruce Chapman and Steve Buri.
On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Director of Communications Rob Crowther interviews CSC Senior Fellow Jay Richards. Listen in as Richards rebuts the warfare thesis – the idea that religion and science are antagonists – and argues that historically, Judeo-Christian culture “was the seedbed from which science emerged.” Has science missed out by being partnered with materialism?
On this episode of ID the Future, Ray Bohlin interviews Jonathan Wells about Zombie Science. Wells discusses the tree of life, the Miller-Urey experiment, and more. What does Wells mean when he says that the DNA "molecule has been invested with far more power than it actually has"? Listen in to find out!
On this episode of ID the Future, Tod Butterfield interviews CSC Program Officer in Education and Public Policy Sarah Chaffee. Listen in as Chaffee shares about the TEKS streamlining process and the push to gut good standards of critical analysis of evolution. The Board votes this week (meeting is April 18-21)! If you're from Texas, learn how you can help.
On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Director of Communications Rob Crowther interviews CSC Senior Fellow Jay Richards on the upcoming March for Science and the CSC’s partnership with Stream.org to provide critical analysis of the April 22 event. Listen in as Richards discusses the controversy over the politics of the march, and why arguments from consensus should set off your baloney detector.
