On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. James Le Fanu explains why this era of big science is both "the best of times and the worst of times." Despite lavish funding of mega research projects, we are not seeing the same returns that we had a century ago with breakthrough discoveries of the fundamental laws of nature. Has the methodology of science reaches its limits? In Part 1 of this three-part series, Le Fanu explores the significance of science today and the confines and opportunities that it may face.
On this episode of ID the Future, hear about new taxpayer-funded research that will look for the most effective ways to pre-condition young minds to accept neo-Darwinism. The National Science Foundation just awarded Boston University a grant of just under $1.5 million for their project, "Evolving Minds in Early Elementary School: Foundations for a Learning Sequence on Natural Selection Using Stories." Listen in.
On this episode of ID The Future, Discovery Institute Senior Fellow David Klinghoffer explores the latest developments involving Dr. Ben Carson and the protests surrounding his doubts over Darwinian evolution after being invited to speak at Emory University’s commencement this year.
On this episode of ID the Future, Todd Butterfield talks with Dr. Jonathan Wells about a common myth surrounding Galápagos finches and Darwin's theory of evolution, which was recently re-printed in the Washington Post. Dr. Wells discusses why a change in the finches' beak size isn't evidence of Darwinian evolution, and how the purported "blueprint" of how the Galápagos finches evolved doesn't, in fact, exist.
On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze interviews filmmaker Fred Foote, writer and producer of the feature-length drama 'Alleged,' which seeks to tell the real story behind the infamous 1925 Scopes Trial in Dayton, Tennessee that pitched Darwinian evolution against belief in God. After seeing the 1960 film Inherit the Wind, starring Gene Kelly and Spencer Tracy, Foote did his own research into the trial and discovered that Inherit the Wind was “almost exactly wrong” on many crucial points. So he set out to make another movie that would set the record straight and would explore how media can influence society’s perspective on past events.
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin continues his talk with Dr. Cornelius Hunter, who recently signed up to take an online college-level course on evolution. Dr. Hunter discusses the dogmatic arguments for Darwinian evolution that he encountered and his experience dialoguing with fellow students.
In 1966, MIT engineers and eminent biologists met at the Wistar Institute to discuss problems with evolutionary theory. Now, at the 50th anniversary of the conference, CSC senior fellow and philosopher of biology, Dr. Paul Nelson, describes what happened at the symposium called "Mathematical Challenges to the Neo-Darwinian Interpretation of Evolution."
On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin sits down with CSC Fellow Dr. Cornelius Hunter, who recently signed up to take a free online course at Coursera titled “Introduction to Genetics and Evolution,” taught by Duke University professor Mohamed Noor. Tune in as Dr. Hunter shares about his experience & discusses the misrepresentations and fallacies that are presented in the typical undergraduate evolutionary biology course.
On this episode of ID the Future, the CSC's Dr. Paul Nelson talks with Dr. Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig, retired geneticist at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Germany, about randomness in natural selection and why randomness is such a controversial topic.
On this episode of ID the Future, Biologic Institute director Dr. Douglas Axe discusses his contribution to the book Science and Human Origins. How efficient is the Darwinian mechanism at inventing new things? Could it really be responsible for the development of human beings, as Darwinists claim? Axe reviews his recent studies on mutation rates and the ability of Darwinian evolution to create new proteins. Tune in and discover what he found out!
