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!
On this episode of ID the Future, CSC Research Coordinator Casey Luskin discusses media coverage of the 2012 Sutter’s Mill meteorite that falsely reports it as containing “seeds of early life” which could have helped generate “[t]he primordial soup of the early Earth.” Tune in as Luskin reveals the weak science — and significant political motives — behind these claims, which one organic chemist describes as “at best misleading, at worst . . . down-right fraudulent.”
On this episode of ID the Future, David Boze talks with Casey Luskin about the Precambrian fossil Vernanimalcula, which was thought to be the proof that Darwinists needed to refute the idea of the Cambrian explosion–the idea that life exploded in complexity during a specific period of time. Vernanimalcula was thought to be the Precambrian ancestor of all bilaterian animals, dating back to tens of millions of years prior to the Cambrian explosion. However, a new article published in Evolution & Development has concluded that “There is no evidential basis for interpreting Vernanimalcula as an animal, let alone a bilaterian.”
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin continues his conversation with Dr. Michael Denton. Dr. Denton elaborates on the concept of bottom-up, versus top-down, causation, and which is the better explanation for the world we live in.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey sits down with Senior Fellow Dr. Michael Denton for a discussion of paradigm shifts in science. Dr. Denton reflects on paradigm shifts that he's witnessed in his lifetime and how his own thinking has changed over the years, and also looks at how these shifts challenge Darwinian evolution in new ways.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses the origin of birds on The Universe Next Door with Tom Woodward. A recent series of papers published in the journal Science presents evidence of the abrupt appearance of major bird groups. Listen in as Luskin explains how these findings support the theory of intelligent design.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear a short excerpt of the book Billions of Missing Links that examines the extraordinary design of the cockroach, and how nearly everything about it defies the theory of evolution.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin shows how the film The Revisionaries revises history. Produced by PBS, The Revisionaries falsely suggests that intelligent design and creationism were required in the 2009 Texas Science Standards (TEKS).
On this episode of ID the Future, Michael Flannery is on The Universe Next Door with Tom Woodward, continuing their discussion on Alfred Russel Wallace, the lesser-known co-founder of the theory of evolution. Dr. Flannery is the author of Alfred Russel Wallace: The Rediscovered Life and an expert on Wallace’s life and scientific pursuits.
